I have read and understood the Cogboard Bounty rules
Bounty Request Format:
Random image posting cog or a “Meme Cog”.
I would like to have a cog that can post a random image from an online folder and post it in discord. The cog will kind of resemble how the custom cog functions kind of work but with a few caveats. Specifically, it needs to be able to pull a random image without needing the explicit file name. So for example it will pull an image from the web folder at: www.domain(.)com/imagesfolder as opposed to www.domain(.)com/imagesfolder/imagename.jpg
the web host it will be pulling from will be one that I own, so don’t worry that the cog will be used for leaching purposes. The reason I want it to work this way is simplicity on the cog’s part. My first attempt with this has the cog trying to keep track and manage collections and post the correct image from the correct category and not mix them up. IE. you invoke !cute and it posts an image from !serious category. Or you want to add new images and the cog doesn’t see them. Or worse you remove images and the cog keeps trying to use the old links. (In short, it was a mess.)
What I want is the cog to be able to pull randomly from an online folder, and the ability to make several copies of the same command mapped to different folders, and thus create different collections that I can manage from the web host. I can manage what images are available by managing them on my web host and that way takes the complexity away from the cog and less stress on the cog maker.
If the cog maker who takes this on has any suggestions, I am open to hearing them. Feel free to be open with me as to any ideas that could make this cog a better one.
Thank you for your time.
