Jonin // v5 Changelog
Let's get some things right! This is our first time making a full on webpage to show our changes. Why? It's because Jonin is growing, thanks to you, everyone has been super supportive and has helped us make Jonin one of the best bots there is. We believe that it is now time to offically record all of the changes and updates that we make!
Here's some quick stats about what we have achieved, Jonin has be used over 45,000 times, Jonin has an average member count of 200,000, and Jonin has supassed 600 servers! v5 is a very huge and important update, and here's why.
A while ago you might have seen the update about Jonin, the one where she lost 50+ commands and was down for 2 days. It was all due to a hack of our dedicated host. We lost all data and we were forced to stop using the dedicated server. Once the person had been found, we had to clean up the aftermath this included getting Jonin running without a database until one could be rebuilt for proper use. This required us to spend a lot of time removing and recoding commands. It wasn't fun and it was very tedious. But after a while of hurdles and isses that kept popping up. We are back and ready to prove our skills!
In all of this chaos we would like to thank TXJ#5664, he helped us host Jonin and keep it running and he is a main reason why Jonin is alive today.
Jonin's v5 brings together a newer and more efficient code base that also has much better error handling. Jonin's v4 was a huge rush and a mess that was never needed, with v5 all the code has been checked multiple times and recoded from scratch if necessary.
Everything changed! The code base that was used for v3 and v4 was heavily modified and reconstructed to work in a more efficient way. The structure and naming system for commands has changed to work in a more interconnected way. The command have been optimied and updated to the best of our abilities and error handling has been reinforced to keep Jonin stable. A new premium system has also been implemented!
Jonin's new main purpose it to be a chatbot, other commands that are currently on Jonin will say since most of them are still used. But the chat command on Jonin has been gaining use exponentially. Therefore we have updated the system that is currently running, this includes: DM chat (DM Jonin to get direct chat responses), a chat channel that can be set by the admins and all messages in that channel will be responded with a webhook call, and finally the command itself that now responds in a quote format to keep the responses formatted correctly. With this new v5 update you can also set the default language for the chatbot, this would translate all responses by the bot into the given language. To have more than 1 channel as the chat channel, the server must have premium.
The v5 also brings forward the blacklist feature, this can be set by server mods and restricts Jonin to the given channels, If said channels were deleted Jonin would not respond in an channel unless a mod is running the blacklist command to reset the channels.
