Today, I noticed that giveaway bots are no longer allowed to provide functionality that requires you to have joined a server in order to enter a giveaway, after the developers of Santa Moon (formerly Santa Wumpus) were forced to remove it from the bot, the reason being that it's considered advertising. However, I disagree wholly with this assertation, given that it's not the bot's developers rewarding its users for joining a server, but rather the giveaway's host. Imagine what would happen if the bot wasn't there; to put it simply, the manual giveaway's host would've chosen a winner after ensuring they were in the required server(s) themselves. There's nothing bad with that, so why would it be bad if a bot was used to automate the more difficult parts of the process? The reward is still provided by the host, the bot just picks the winner. Therefore, I'm suggesting re-allowing giveaway bots to provide a server requirement feature, because, currently, multiple server requirements for a single giveaway are essentially impossible to automate.
