When does the "System" user read topics?

(Serfma) #1

Working with the API and I’m curious both what the ‘unseen’ entails for topics, and when the system user “reads” a topic? I’m looking to posting new threads to a Discord server and was going to base it off of the unseen bool, though I’m thinking unseen is also back to true when someone else posts in the topic, and I’m thinking using system as the api username is a bad idea since there’s no guarantee it’ll see a topic that has yet to be posted.

My approach would be creating a user just for the bot, that way you can tailor bot permissions (create a bot group, with see only permissions on the categories he’s going to post to discord) and this even make an api key leak less dangerous.
