Hi @everyone ,

Sorry that you’re experience isn’t going smoothly for the last week. I have decided I can’t be maintaining the bot anymore, at least for a while.

I am very thankful to the people who have cheered me on and send nice and thankful message to me and to the people who stood by the work of Maxminded by being a supporter on Patreon. This is what made me keep going and this is what made it possible. Thank you Stanley, you know who are you.

We have had thousands of users use the bot on a daily basis and I can’t think of a better compliment than that.

It does me good that , at least, it was possible to fix the bot with all its rigorous coding from when I first started coding to something solid, with advanced devops, where I could implement my skills I took on from the university. Maxminded was a great outlet for me during the Covid-pandemic, which gave me the means of staying active, in such a down period. Maxminded has had its ups and down, and, I can’t deny it wasn’t fun implementing everything to make the Maxminded bot work as it finally did.

This is why it hurts me to tell it is coming to an end. My Maxminded has become more than a burden than a help for me. Both because there’s limited support on Patreon, and I feel like there isn’t much to expand the project on, since we all know, Discord is basically making bots, even how slowly, absolute, by adding all these features most bot offer, into Discord app itself. I feel like my bot project has come to an conclusion. It’s all but a financial burden, and anything else. I don’t really see any reason on keeping it up anymore, for at least in the near future. I may change my mind again later.

I’m going to focus on other projects regarding Philosophy as a student this year and focus less on Security Software Engineering. Next year, I will be focusing on internships and graduation.

Kind regards,


Fully Docker supported Example Bot

For the lack of good examples on the internet I've made this Git Repo for my own example bot. With this description I try to make as little as possible need for experience.

This is an example application that makes it possible to create a fully Docker supported Discord Bot that runs in shards. You can run this application in multiple ways:
- Local development without Docker
- Local develepment with Docker Compose
- Docker CLI Run
- Run with Docker Compose
- Run with Docker Swarm Stack
- Run all shards in one service
- Spread or split shards over multiple services

You can also create your own Docker image using Docker CLI or Docker compose.

It's all documented in this github repo.

This project provides a microservice that updates your TopGG statistics on an hourly basis.
Sharding is supported. It's possible to run all shards (one or multiple) on one service or
make each shard run on its own service
(see README).

This project uses Docker, DiscordJS and TopGG and more.

febuari updates and releases

– New message cleaning (prune) reply feature.
You can now pick your starting point when pruning. This is done be replying to the message under the messages you want removed. This is very handy for clearing specific parts of your chat. This also supports user specific deletion, which is recommended to prevent unwanted pruning.

See here for an example. When you want to delete the red messages, reply to the blue one and just type /prune x how you would normally.

– You can now also use user id for user specific pruning.
/prune 2 286453881649758210

– Pruning no longer defaults to no user when the mention was failed to be found due to cache error.

– Fix confirm message prune
Wouldn’t display correct delete count when deleting 100+ messages.


– Settings are successfully reset and will now be saved more efficiently to improve performance.

– Raffle disabled
To avoid confusion. It’s not finished but some commands were enabled.

– Bot is migrated to a new host and now running on a 3-node Docker Swarm with 3 shards.

– Prune now bypasses pinned messages :fireworks:


– Settings bug for new guilds
Setting new permissions or nuke channels would not work when there were no settings initiated beforehand. Now it automatically initiates when needed.

– Auto nuke
Warns you when a channel failed nuke when you have logging enabled and removes it from the settings.
No longer stops when 1 channel fails and continues trying to nuke the rest of the list instead.

IMPORTANT: Voting testing phase
– TopGG implementation.

A new voting-trial feature will be active for testing. Some commands may require you to vote to unlock.
Voting for this bot will unlock all features for 12 hours. Then you need to revote.

This includes the following commands:
– Channel
– Nuke
– Prune

– /server command to view basic information.

– Bot now periodically updates server count

– Bot now warns you when you don’t have enough permissions to perform a commando in said channel. (more proactive than before)

– Minor bug fixes and devops improvements
