Nice nice! :slight_smile: Ty for that, hope you could fix that! :wink:

What are you using the delay for in this instance?

I use the API for a command in my chatbot.
The reason why I use the API is that there is not always the requirement for a delay for some of my channels.
And updating the command manually wasn’t “good” enough.

So it is a easy and correct way for me and the other mods to inform the users about the current delay!

So, you’re only using the value for display purposes, right? Has this ever returned a value other than 0 or null?

yes, Sir!

yes, it has. I added the command in November 2015 and but the return value was null for at least 2 months, I would say!

Since I’m not partnered I wasn’t able to reproduce till now!
