Dad Bot - The Reddit Bot

Inder Dhillon

Prologue:

The developer of Dad Bot is not responsible for anything the account u/imdad_bot says, it is just quoting other people.

Description:

Uses Reddit API using the wrapper library praw to make Hi ______ I'm Dad Jokes on u/imdad_bot.

Example:

example

Overview:

The program monitors r/all commment section to see if anyone has commented using I'm and then replies with a Hi I'm Dad Joke with the substring that follows I'm using Reddit's API wrapper library praw. No easy buckets.

Modules used:

praw : Wrapper library for Reddit's API

Epilogue:

The bot makes about 1000 comments/hr which will likely be the reason it'll get banned soon. Heres a visualization: viz I could rate limit it but people like it so I'll let it go crazy. Now if someone in the future (Hi future human, I'm Dad.) sees this and the account is dead you know what happened.

Edit: I killed the project because it was making some questionable comments. People want more dad jokes but unfortunately u/imdad_bot will not be the providing them.
