    It is against the TOS to host a chat script, yes.
    However, if the script is hosted elsewhere and you just have an iFrame which shows the chat in some place of your actual site, you probably won't have a problem.
    In your case, since its hosted on Discord and just links Discord to your site, it shouldn't have a problem I believe.

    WidgetBot.IO does not use IFrames.
    It places a little icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Go to the website to see what I mean.

    So is it that a problem?

    Yep

    I just checked the code and it has no problems I believe, basically what it does is:

    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@widgetbot/[email protected]" async>
      const crate = new Crate({
        server: '299881420891881473',
        channel: '355719584830980096'
    </script>

    It serves the actual chat script from somewhere else. Hosting a chat script is not allowed; having chat scripts on your site hosted elsewhere is no problem, I think.

    Having that said script on the website

      const crate = new Crate({

        channel: '355719584830980096'
    </script>

    Is still not allowed, because you have to put that script on the site.
