Discussion on: Let's make a Twitch bot with Python!

Not sure if its actually an issue to be stuck on "Loading .env environment variables…" because I can continue with the rest of the code, and my bot does go online.

This happens when my Bot_Nick and Channel are the same. Before making my Bot_Nick the same as my channel name, I was having the "channel does not exist" error. If I make my Bot_Nick my channel name, it doesn't seem to matter what the Channel input is, because the bot still goes online as my channel name.

Would love to see this fixed because it's very easy to get running otherwise!

Bot_Nick is not a nickname, it is the name of the channel.
