Could you possibly block the https://repl.it/talk/ route and leave the rest of repl.it open?

@TheImagin33r You are correct, comrade! The title of this game is a disgrace to the motherland!

Hosting a Discord bot on Repl
posted to Ask by Kiansjet

Yes, you can using uptimerobot, like @Vandesm14 and @ash15khng said. I'll give you step by step instructions. Please note that your repl will need a front end (an HTML page).

  1. ) Create an account at https://uptimerobot.com/
  2. ) Login and go to your dashboard on uptimerobot
  3. ) Click "Add New Monitor"
  4. ) In the menu that pops up, set monitor type as "HTTP(S)", give it a friendly name (can be anything you want), and set the URL as the link to the front end (the repl.co one).
  5. ) Set the monitoring time to 30 minutes or less.
  6. ) Click "Create Monitor" at the end of the form.

Congrats on the spotlight!

Also after reading these, it makes me feel like everyone is more intelligent than me, lol. To be honest though, I'm much better as visualizing things and constructing them over writing programs. Which is probably why I'm the best builder on my robotics team... I guess we're all strong in our own ways. I just want to get better at programming.

Hi, I'm Zavexeon! But you can call me Kyle or Zave.

I'm a Ruby programmer, brought here to find a good online coding environment for it. Since then I've learned many different programming languages.

@AzureScripts I like how I quote "Indiana Jones" and you quote "Toy Story".

WINNER ANNOUNCED: What would you do with $5,000?
posted to Announcements by katyadee

I would send a bribe to a Nigerian Prince to send $500,000 to my bank account (let's hope he's bad at math). Then I would use that $500,000 dollars to bribe an even richer Nigerian prince to send $5,000,000 to make bank account (hopefully he failed math class too).

After that is all done and said, I buy repl.it, and then proceed with my plan to take over the world.

Here's a sample of the email:

Message body:
Excuse me good sir, I'm a great admirer. It would certainly make my day if you deposit $500,000 in my bank account. I will give you $5000 for your trouble.

Stay rich handsome,

Nice simplicity.

I did make a slight modification to @malvoliothegood's version. I rounded the edges of the image.

Well, that's a tough choice

I'd probably go with Ruby.

This writes an "infinitely" long file of code.

var fs = require('fs'); 

var fileStream = fs.createWriteStream('infiniteJS.js');
let x = 0;

stream.once('open', function(fd) {
    while (true) {
        stream.write(`console.log('Line number ${x} of code.')`);
        x++;
    }
});

How do I code?
posted to Ask by obamasbbc

Well... you'd have to at least go through a few tutorials just to get a basic grasp of programming. That, or maybe read some programming books. I'd suggest tutorials though, simply because hands-on learning in programming is often better. I'd suggest doing a codecademy course in a language of your choosing to get a bare bones amount of programming knowledge, just the basics.

Or you could look through the language docs and figure out everything from there. Keep in mind this is VERY overwhelming and there's a lot of vocabulary and programming lingo you wouldn't understand, making it an extremely difficult - if not impossible - experience.

One feasible option is reading some articles on basic programming, learning some basic programming knowledge and vocab, and playing around with an IDE. Maybe check out some docs, look at other projects, etc.

But I'd highly suggest you do some tutorials too. It will make your life much easier and will streamline the experience, and after all, when it comes to programming, efficiency is key. Like I said above, doing at least one course in a language of your choice in codecademy is what I would suggest, just so you can get a basic grasp about programming.

@KaysenMcElroy That's unfortunate. Sorry, I can't really help with that. What I can do is suggest that maybe you do some independent learning.
