Chatbot Not Responding

  • Check if the bot is currently active in your channel. You can do this by going to your StreamElements dashboard and ensuring the bot is turned on.
  • Ensure the bot is not banned or ignored in your channel. Sometimes, the bot might have been accidentally banned, which would prevent it from posting messages.

Commands Not Working

  • Check command settings. Some commands may be set to work only for moderators or the streamer. You can adjust these settings in your StreamElements dashboard.
  • Command cooldown. If a command was recently used, it might be on cooldown. Check the command's settings to see if there's a cooldown period set.

Timers Not Triggering

  • Check the timer settings. Ensure the timers are enabled and configured with the correct intervals and chat lines required to trigger.
  • Insufficient chat activity. Some timers require a minimum amount of chat activity to trigger. Encourage your viewers to be more active in chat.
