.fmbot

Open source

We develop an open source freely available Discord bot used for gaining insights into your music history.

About


 .fmbot is an open-sourced bot used for accessing statistics from last.fm and other services.
It gets used over 200.000 times a day, is in over 60.000 servers and has over 175.000 registered users. On average 200 new servers add .fmbot and 500 new users register every day.

We created this OpenCollective so we can professionalize the bot while still remaining fully open and transparent about any financial contributions. Currently, the bot is hosted on an older server that will start to limit bot growth and could be starting to become a limiting factor for features to be expanded.

New features that might be coming in the future also require us to have more and faster storage for our database. Storing music data for this many users is starting to get limited by the server power that's currently available.

So that's why we want to switch to a faster server, with more storage and more processing power. This is however pretty expensive, which is why we have created this collective. All contributions will go to bot and server expenses.

In the future we might also consider using this funding so that developing .fmbot is something we can do as part-time maintainers. This would allow new features, fixes and improvements to be developed much faster as the bot is currently maintained in our free time.

Also, we want to emphasize that we will never lock commands behind a paywall.
.fmbot will always stay free and open source.

Note: If at any point you would like to ask questions or discuss this OpenCollective, feel free to join our server. Please also contact us on our server after purchasing supporter so we can apply it to your account.
