Terms of Use

Promises from us to you

  • We will not modify your server via the bot unless you explicitly tell us to do so, and it is necessary in order for us to provide effective support.
  • We will not read any messages on your server via the bot unless you explicitly tell us to do so, and it is necessary in order for us to provide effective support.
  • We will not modify the bot's configuration for your server unless you explicitly tell us to do so, and it is necessary in order for us to provide effective support, except in cases where we are reorganizing the bot's configuration files across all servers.
  • We will not send messages to your server's members via the bot.
  • We will not send messages to your server via the bot (eg, advertisements), except in cases where we are making an announcement that pertains strictly to the bot (eg, power outage warnings).
  • We will not grant any outside party access to the code, the database, the token, the developer tools, or any other view that could compromise the security and privacy of the bot's users.
  • We will not ask for your personally identifying information or for that of your server's members. Our payment processor asks for some limited information through our site, but we never see or store this information.
In these statements, "you" refers to a server administrator, and "we" refers to the bot's developers, not the bot itself acting on instructions from users. If you find that we have violated any of these statements, you can remove the bot from your server at any time.

Promises from you to us

  • You will not use the bot to break the Discord Terms of Service.
  • You will not use the bot to break real-world laws.
  • You will not use the bot to harass or spam other users or the developers.
  • You will not send explicit or illegal material to the bot via private message.
  • You will not flood the bot with commands in an attempt to deny service to other users.
In these statements, "you" refers to any user, and "us" refers to the bot's developers. If we find that you have violated any of these statements, we reserve the right to temporarily or permanently ban you or your server from using the bot's commands, or remove the bot from your server entirely.

History

The original Moose was created in March 2017 to replace a series of less-than-satisfactory commercial bots. Aside from the theme, v1 did not resemble the present-day model in any way. It was ugly, prone to bugs, and running on unreliable hardware. For a long time nobody knew any better, so it was enough. In mid-2018, limitations with the framework precipitated a serious effort to develop a new version. At the time it seemed like it would be easy—how wrong that was! v2 turned out to be vastly more complicated than anyone could have expected. It was always meant to be publicly available, but not until mid-2019 was there any expectation of a global launch. It was then that the Main Edition, Moose v2#1152, was created.

Part 2: in the making!
