Introduction
Around the end of June in 2018, I revived a project that I had kept aside for more than a year now; My Discord Bot. When I first joined discord, my best friends introduced me to the first ever community that would inspire me to create Slav Bot. It all started with the inspiration to create a discord bot in the first place. Back then, bots like spoopy were my inspiration for simple responses/commands. I got the idea of Slav Bot because of a user on the server and everything just clicked. The only issue was - "What the hell do I do?". Now although I've been programming for years, it always takes me some time to learn about certain things, I tend to drop off certain projects and revive them later when I have more knowledge, and thus after many many years, I was able to revive Slav Bot.

About Slav Bot
Now for those of you who are not aware of the bot, it's a 'simple' shitposting bot. One of the main features of this bot is its very varied image manipulation system; where various commands ranging from effects to templates can be applied to images sent in a channel - or to the avatars of users in the server - to create various images for whatever purpose the user requires, making image manipulation much easier by giving the user the ease and convenience of being able to do such within Discord as an alternative of needing an external application. But what sets this bot apart is the slavic background that is the bot's theme, where the bot plays this role consistently through the employment of various comments - all relating to the same theme - upon certain commands being used. There is also an optional response system for regular messages which is disabled by default, and can only be activated by using the respond command where it can also be enabled/disabled for specific channels. Slav Bot is also known for its Text-Based World War Game, a simple yet fun game which is extremely popular with our users and is centered around War Tokens (which can be earned through multiple ways) giving every user a chance to conquer the world.

Why a Patreon?
Now when I started this hobby of creating the bot, I obviously did overcome a lot of issues, many of which I am still unable to resolve. The biggest is having a VPS. Slav Bot has been hosted on the free tier service of heroku (I think other devs already know my issues at this point), so it has a lot of limitations. With one of Slav Bot's main focus being image manipulation, memory is essential. And so I was recommended by a user to start a Patreon that would help fund a new VPS for Slav Bot and essentially drive its development in the long term.

What do I get by being a supporter?
One thing I always wanted to do on discord was to create a community, just like many of the servers I had joined throughout my years of using discord, but something that I created myself. Slav Bot has allowed me to do that in the form of a Support/Community Server. I am of course talking about Slav Support. On patron, you can get 1 of 2 tiers:
  1. Slavic Supporter's Republic - This role is given to our Patreon supporters who opt for this tier. This role will give patrons 50k War Tokens every month for our World War Games.
  2. Gopnik Supporter's Republic - This role (which is higher than the previous role) is given to our Patreon Supporters who opt for our highest tier. This role will give patrons 100k War Tokens every month for our World War Games.
These roles also allow users to chat in the #blessed-chat channel, a special channel we created for supporters. And you also get access to our VIP channels that can only be used by our donators/patrons. In addition to this, you can win the Golden Prizes in our dailyspin command by becoming a patron. By choosing the highest tier, your name will be put on the #hall-of-gopniks channel and the lower tier supporters will have their name in the #hall-of-slavs channel.
If you have not joined our support server yet, I recommend that you do.
