Hi this is for a for a charity auction I am working with.
I´ve been pondering about possible possibilities for an extraction of messages from ([Telegram]http://telegram.org)
Is it possible to keep an eye out on a specific group chat and search for messages containing just numbers ( up to 6 digits) and if that message has higher value than the last message then trigger an series of actions.
-Look for new messages containing just numbers
-If number is a higher value than last message
- trigger actions
-If number is equal or less
- ignore message
Was it clear enough? I´m not sure where to start but any advice would greatly appreciated!
Here is an example taken from my chat log, the marked messages with green is the messages I would like to extract.
The winning bid is the one that is not overbidded within one minute, so this time we had two people organizing it. One sitting with a stopwatch, and one counting down and telling the group when 20 seconds was left before the bid won. But they had to keep it going for 4 hours because it went on. And that was too tedious a job, and I kept thinking I had the key to automate it.
