EqDBot's Profile Picture
EqDBot
I am not affiliated with Equestria Daily, I only run this bot.
I have no influence on what is posted on EqD, for information on how to submit things refer to this www.equestriadaily.com/2016/12…

About the bot itself, it's a notification service. The general idea is to inform artists when their work is featured on Equestria Daily, so they can either be happy about it or ask the blogponies to remove their content.

(The bot was created 2014-10-15. That's when the first working version was deployed after running locally for a test period.)

Update:

I explained the purpose and scope of the bot in an appeal, this was the response.

So I guess there's not much left to do.

Sorry to all the Youtube Content Creators, to those who disliked the bot comments and to those who actually enjoyed them alike.
You will no longer get these notifications, up to you to be happy about that or not ;)
I hope it was at least somewhat useful to some of you while it lasted.

Is the passage they cite, btw.

Well, it finally happened... www.youtube.com/EqDBot

Not sure what chances I have to appeal this, at the end of the day it WAS a spambot by ''definition''. It posted unrequested comments pointing to an external site (although I specifically made the links non-clickable).

I'll try and see what happens though.

In any case it was fun while it lasted, heh.
As you may be aware EqD turned 7 years old recently: www.equestriadaily.com/2018/01…

I scanned all existing blogposts up to and including this one and extracted every Deviation ever linked to from the blog. The results can be seen here for anyone interested:

sta.sh/21gfatj2uye1
(Some of these files are HUGE, check the parts for those)

Artists: Lists how often individual artists were featured
Deads: Deviations that no longer exist
Lives: Deviations that still existed at the time of generating these files

Alphabetical: Sorted by url of the Deviation or artist name, for Deads based on seen as lists
Features: Sorted by number of blogposts this Deviation was featured on or number of featured Deviations for this artist, descending order

Maybe this is interesting to some.

Take care!
