Error With Urban Dictionary

Post by Dominatez »

Hi Guys,

I am getting the following error now after my datacenter lost everything. I had to reinstall.

In channel when i do !ud help it now responds with
Error: Word not found. No definitions or parsing problem!

But in the bot itself it shows no error. It shows :
Fetching definition 1 of help...
