FAQ


How do I set my username?

Please see .fmset.

Commands are showing the wrong songs

Please check your last.fm profile to see if it matches the command output. We get our data from Last.fm and if something is wrong with the data its almost always on their end.

Help! Everything is broken even though the bot is still online..

Most likely the Last.fm API is having issues, this happens every now and then. Please be patient and/or join our server for updates.

The bot is offline

It could be that it just happens to be updating. If it stays down, please join the support server and ping one of the developers.

What is the difference between the normal bot and the develop bot?

The develop bot is used to test new fixes and functionality before they go to the normal bot. This is usually announced in #announcements.

This bot can have more downtime and bugs than the normal bot, so that is something to keep in mind. The bots currently share the same database, so switching is easy.

In the future you will be able to check the version through .fmstatus, but it's currently broken.

I like this bot

Cool, great to hear.

I don't like this bot

:( Please let us know why in the support server.

Or make your own Last.FM bot! You can export all guild members into a handy json format using .fmgetmembers, so your friends don't have to re-set their usernames.

Why does this bot exist?

This bot was made by BitL back in September 2017, and was inspired by UB3R Bot. Back then the bot just had .fm, the charts, featuring and .fmyoutube. Frikandel joined in when he had the idea of .fmfriends, but was too lazy to make his own bot. Together they moved the bot from text files to an actual database, and the quality of the code has greatly improved since the start.
