I was thinking of making a parenti bot and noticed that lemmy’s settings allow you to mark an account as a bot. Doing a search for “bot” in the server side code shows options for showing/hiding content posted by bots when viewing communities, but I didn’t see anything for actually having an account run a script.
I’m sure people viewing this from lemmygrad may recall Comarade Rose, who was likely a bot, regularly posting content from communist subreddits; I’m sure making a bot is possible.

In settings there is a checkbox “Bot Account”. Just check it and save.
I meant making a bot that does things, not just designating an account as a bot account. Fortunately, I’ve since figured that out. See @ParentiBot@lemmygrad.ml.
Nice.Care to share details on how to make it work ?
