Introducing: The User Pinger bot! (testing phase)

Hello there!

I'd like to introduce a new feature currently in testing phase. After countless hours of fighting against Python, I finally managed to set up a User Pinger bot for the sub (this is the part where I tell you what this is about).

The part where I tell you what this is about

Pings are a way of sending notifications to a group of people from within the sub. I've made groups for a variety of countries and regions that you can join at will.

When someone writes !ping GROUP in a comment, everyone subscribed to that GROUP will get a message from u/LearnSpanishPingBot containing a link to that comment. In other words, it's like Discord Pings, but for Reddit.

For example, if someone had just asked how to say "car" in France's Spanish (lol), then you could !ping FRANCE, and anyone within the FRANCE group (that is to say, anyone with the FRANCE role), would be notified and sent a link to your comment. Ain't that cool?

And now, the list of groups you can join.

You'll find the full Documentation on the Wiki.

Final note

Remember that this is a test, so the bot can crash or be down at any moment. I'll set the flair on this post to ON or OFF to let you know. I'm basically running this on my laptop, so plox bear with it. Don't abuse it too much, tho.

If you find it useful enough, I may make it permanent. I can also add more groups if necessary.

Happy pinging!
