Hey everyone, welcome back.

Between the end of last season and now we had a bot that was working for gamethreads, but it’s since stopped working and the owner is not really interested in getting it working again.

If anyone is capable of setting up another bot or has a working bot for game threads please contact me.

If not, I am looking to add moderators that are willing and able to get up game threads (and moderate them if needed).

On c/nfl we tried threads for every game and it simply isn’t populated enough to have that many threads and everyone decided to just do a Thursday/Sunday/Monday thread. What does everyone think about maybe a weekly thread for all of the games or would you prefer game threads for each individual game? (if you check NFL and see an “NFL bot” account posting the game threads, it was supposed to be a bot, but we couldn’t get it going and log in and post them manually from it).

Edit - And lastly, obviously, part of the point in modding whoever posts these is so that they can be pinned by the poster.

    Daily threads for all games would be a good start. I think individual games would be too much and not get enough activity so combine them in to one per day.

        That looks great. I wish we had more users to make dedicated game threads. That will have to do for now.

          So basically, Game Threads inside of the global game thread? I will work on it.

          EDIT: Look at the structure of the parent comments in the thread above again. Like this?

            Great work, just like that! Can you add basic info in the body of the post?

              I will work on it for another day. I am not sourcing a feed yet.

    I think we need more content as possible, we could start making daily game threads. I’m not into bot, but if no one can take the task, I can try (no guarantee!)

      Gotcha (and gotcha on the reply for the comment I just tagged you in). I agree about threads for every game, but it’s definitely a lot of work to do manually, if we have people willing to do it I’m game though. I just can’t personally commit to getting them all up

        Sorry I was not clear: I meant we could have a thread per day, with all the games

      I will also take a crack at it if he’s not willing, and take on mod duties to run it through my account or a second Bot-only account.

      EDIT: I am adapting another bot from r/collegebasketball to see if I can get it to work with Lemmy. I won’t have it up tonight. But hopefully soon.

        I just learned it’s not as easy to run a bot like on reddit :-( I think your approach today is the most effective, by having a single day thread for all games and parent comments for each game

      Seems like Vodka is the only active one.

        So it would seem, would you like to be added as a mod? I see you active and working on game threads

          Go for it. I’ll hopefully have the bot better soon.
