Everything with a beginning has an end.
The time has come to say your lasts goodbyes to Dredd.

The start of Dredd December of 2019

Dredd was first known as RegardsNation, unfortunately, I couldn't find the initial profile picture, but it was ugly. Dredd was first written with Discord.JS library. On January 15th, 2020, its token has been accidentally leaked, during which multiple servers have got destroyed. The call with the hacker can be found here. (This video was recorded by a different person and the 2nd person talking was not me)

The new beginning January 15th, 2020

After the initial bot got hacked, I decided to delete that bot and start a new one instead from the beginning - a new name, new library, and new profile picture. At first, I named it Roles and used the profile picture displayed below. That’s also when I started using Discord.PY library.

The name change February 11th, 2020

After almost a month, I decided I don't like the name of my bot and started looking for a new name. After a couple of websites, I found six different names, from which I chose Dredd.

The official release April 1st, 2020

Around this time, I started adding Dredd to bot lists. After approximately two and a half weeks, it got verified on all the bot lists I added Dredd to. Credits to Discord Extreme list for being the first list to verify Dredd.

v1 release April 25th, 2020

With this release, new features got released, and some stuff got changed:
• Automod
• Multiple new commands
• Improved logs
• Changed the design of the help command
• Switched from JSON to PostgreSQL

50 Servers! May 22nd, 2020

Dredd has reached its 50th server on this day!

v2 release June 22nd, 2020

Not a lot has changed with this release, primarily only the code base and performance improvements. Dredd was also made open-source on this day.

100 Servers! August 29th, 2020

Dredd has reached its 100th server on this day!

Dredd was verified! September 17th, 2020

Dredd has got verified by Discord on this day. I still remember receiving an email from Discord right after I shut down my pc and went to bed. When I read the whole email, hopped out of my bed, booted up my PC, and was super excited about the fact it got verified and got both members and presence intents.

Switch to VPS November 11th, 2020

Right until this day, I’ve been self-hosting Dredd on my laptop, but luckily, I got access to a VPS, from where I was able to host Dredd.

1st birthday! January 15th, 2021

Even though Dredd was technically started back in December of 2019, I didn’t feel like celebrating its birthday on that day due to events that happened with the initial bot application.

Massive data loss January 26th, 2021

The day I had to make an announcement, telling that the data of the last three months got lost due to the VPS provider shutting down unexpectedly, right after their internal team got changed.

v3 release April 3rd, 2021

A lot has changed with this release - you can read the change log in the support server. This rewrite took me over 410 hours to finish and about 8 hours to release. In total around 420 hours. (This number was not intentional, I swear!)

Profile Picture Change April of 2021

All the profile pictures have got improved in design.

Halting Dredd's development July 30th, 2021

Due to the new Message Intent, Dredd's development got halted for a while.

First big raid handled! August 29th, 2021

Dredd handled its first big raid successfully. A total of hundred different users were banned.

Got the Message Intent! October 26th, 2021

Dredd was verified for the message intent on this day, meaning the development has resumed. The next update was released not even a week after this.

Second Birthday! January 15th, 2022

Dredd turned two on this day. The development process has been halted again due to my finals coming up and me wanting to focus on school. Dredd final update was also released on this day. A simple web dashboard has also been released with the update.

The announcement no one was waiting for June 26th, 2022

I successfully graduated and returned home after all the finals. On this day the announcement was made about Dredd's sunset on August 31st, 2022.

The End. August 31st, 2022

The day has officially come - Dredd's sunset. Final songs are being played, final commands are being ran, final memories are being made. Goodbye Dredd o7

The Statistics

In the lifetime of Dredd, we've reached over 580 servers and nearly 500,000 users. Around 100,000 commands were ran, with the most used one being the play command - it has been used over 38,800 times! A total of over 178,000 songs got queued, of which a little over 112,000 songs actually played. It’s impressive, considering the fact that music got released in v3. The most played song was “Patrick Bateman why isn’t it possible?” - it has been repeated over 4000 times! Since November 1st, 2022 a total of over 58,600 logs were sent, 165 automod actions executed, 600 backups made, 74 errors occured, 8,200,000 messages seen, 200 commands ran on average, 230 servers joined.

Thank You!

A huge thank you to all the supporters who have supported me and Dredd during this journey. It means a lot to me! I can’t thank all of you, but here’s a short list of people who have contributed to Dredd's development and helped me to get Dredd to where it was.

Dredd has been my most used and greatest bot since years. I have had many positive experiences with it and had hoped to continue to have them for a long time. Though i understand that all things, including Dredd must come to an end at some point. No matter what, i will continue to stick around for other great things from Moksej, and i thank him and all contributors for making such a great bot, with such great features. No bot can, and will ever be able to top it. You will be missed Dredd.

Dredd's been one of the best discord bots I've used, sadly, it didn't reach the heights it could...

I was one of the first Hosters of Dredd. It was always a goal to overtake Dredds Guild count.

But this is not the end!

I and my friends have been working on a new project for over a year! You should definitely check Ulafo out! I'll also be working on new projects to hopefully release them in the near future. Join the Dredd's server which will be reworked to match future projects and plans.
