Cool bot. One feature that could be added is group handling. Or was it me that couldn’t get the right syntax to work?

In group bot will be handle all message. As example if 5 people send 5 messages concurrent, bot will send to this chat 15 answer messages, so chat will be flooded

I couldn’t manage to get that to work.

Anyway, congrats on the work.

I am thinking on a telegram bot to record audio files for wiktionary.

How can we authenticate telegram bot users with wikipedia oauth?
so that they can use their own accounts to upload audio files to commons.

IIRC @amire80 wrote a telegram bot (for enabling translating via Telegram messages), maybe has some drop-in code.

EDIT: oh right, it’s right there a few comments up… thought this was a new topic for some reason.
