Discord Ban mega-thread! (Discord bot / Something took too long to do)

heh, I feel like a regular to this thread. The two projects of mine that had been banned have been struck again. On an unrelated note, is there a way to see what host a project is on from the editor?

Hi @Andromander we did have another host banned by Discord. Only one of the bots you’ve previously mentioned was on that host, and it’s now been re-homed, so things should be looking up. Let us know if you see further problems.

My bot is having the exact same issue. I wonder what is causing discord to ban all these hosts :thinking:

We had another banned host which we’ve emptied - all your bots should be finding new hosts and no longer be having trouble connecting.

The most likely cause is that there’s one or more bots that are violating some aspect of the Discord terms of service, and when they get banned Discord bans that IP address, which causes an entire host to be banned on Glitch’s end, effecting whatever bots are running on the host.

We haven’t been able to find a way to work with the Discord team to resolve these issues yet. Luckily they’re not all that common in general. That said this is really the only strategy open to us, and we’re sorry for the frustration.

Hello it’s been about 2 weeks that my bot works very well but I once again received this error, the name of my project is odium-bot

Thank you for any help I hesitated to open another topic desolate for disarray ^^

Hey @zeis974 we don’t have any currently-banned hosts, so there’s nothing for us to do on that front. We’ve seen on occasion where Discord will ban an IP address but subsequently unban it without any apparent action, so maybe that’s what’s happened in this case?

If you’re still experiencing the problem, though, then I suggest you open a new topic - it seems likely to be specific to your bot and not more widespread.

There’s not currently a project with that name. Did you rename or delete it? Let us know the current name and we’ll take a look. Thanks.

Hi, I just started having this problem today with my bot, kakuhou-surgeon. It’s a private application, but I can send an invite link if you need to look at it.
