The SuS Discord bot icon.
"Back in February I found a file named tokens, it wasn't well hidden. Anyone could have gotten it... Do you know what [I could] do with that token? You know how easy it is right?"
- Malcolm Hollingworth to Ian Hampton in a prime example of foreshadowing, 05/07/2020.
The name is a stupid joke. It is a word commonly used in YTPs to mean Sauce. The image represents this. The icon for SuS is actually just a zoomed-out picture of a camera roll on an iPhone, and includes a picture of Dr. Steven Delp. The SuS Discord bot has been an iconic part of Willemstan for years now, and has evolved far beyond its original purpose. It is well known for its controversial "SuS Premium" service, which extensivly monitored many members of Willemstan until January of 2021. It is used primarly by Charlie to conduct many Willemstan related ventures.
SuS was created in February 2019 by Charlie Nolan as an adventure in programming, to be used for Willemstan's dirty work. Hosted on a laptop computer under a bed for quite some time, and even ran on solar power for about a week. It was primarly used to censor speech in Willemstan, which caused great annoyance.
Role in the Willemstan File Service

SuS ran on the same computer that hosted the WFS, and its files were hidden inside of it. SuS Commands were used to access the WFS from Discord. These commands were later removed after the WFS was discontinued.
Role in System IV
Main article: System IV
SuS runs on the same computer that hosts System IV. SuS Commands can be used to access and download certain files from System IV, using Discord. Most data used by SuS is stored on System IV, such as source code and media collected by SuS Premium. SuS also holds a role in the "Willemstan Wiki, by enabling remote deactivation of the entire site, as well as indexing the pages for functions such as the random page feature.
SuS was integrated into the Live Camera Feed for a time. It was used to fetch the current time and integrate Willemstan Government Alerts with the livestream. This practice was discontinued after a new computer without SuS was used for the second season of the Live Camera Feed.
SuS Premium unlocked additional SuS Features, at the cost of a user's privacy. It involved giving your Discord Token to Sus, which it used to collect messages and media for Willemstan intelligence. It also enabled some commands that require actions to be taken from a botted user account. All visual and audio media collected from SuS is stored in the Mediapool folder, the largest folder in System IV. Message text is stored in an undiscolosed location on the System IV server. At its highest point, 13 Discord accounts had SuS premium. This was just a stupid project to have bootleg mass surveillance and collect funny memes.
On several occasions, media collected from SuS Premium was livesteamed on the Silly Goose YouTube Channel at random. There have been two of these streams, and both have resulted in strikes from YouTube. The first stream was on January 7th of 2020, and was taken down for streaming a pirated and compressed episode of Seinfeld. The second steam was on July 27th of 2020, and was once again taken down by YouTube, this time for sexual content.
SuS Premium had a major data leak in February of 2020. You see, SuS stored all of the tokens of SuS Premium subscribers in a text file on the System IV server. Malcolm H. eventually found this information and experimented with the tokens by taking control of several dead alternate accounts. On May 7th of 2020, Malcolm suggested to Ian in dms that he should change his password, and told Ian about the tokens file. Ian took Malcolm's advice and got 2fa, resetting his token, and kept this information to himself, as he did not realize the true nature of the situation at the time. On June 16th of 2020, Malcolm used Sean's Discord token to transfer sever ownership of Willemstan to Eli Payton. In return, Eli removed Charlie from power and gave Malcolm an admin position. This event is known as the June 2020 Coup, and resulted in a whole string of events.
SuS Premium was discontinued on January 2nd of 2021. This is mainly because it was unneeded in Willemstan as the SuS bot now has access to all of Willemstan, so it can log the messages itself without the use of other users. It was also because of the stain the coup put on its record, and because SuS Premium put a significant processing power strain on the server, and had not been working for about 2 weeks due to unknown reasons. Members of Willemstan were reluctant to get SuS Premium again following the events of the coup.
The was the message you received after giving SuS your token.
Role in the Willemstan Salt Mine
Main Article: Willemstan Salt Mine
The Willemstan Salt Mine is controlled by the SuS Bot. SuS commands assign a user to mine salt (1-100 salt shakers) and keep track of how much salt they have mined and free them when the sentence is complete. It also counts the total amount of salt mined in Willemstan and stores this information in its Discord status.
Willemstan Government Alerts
SuS can announce Willemstan Government Alerts when prompted. These are announcements relating to Willemstan, in servers that SuS has access to that have a large user overlap with Willemstan. Tests are conducted occasionally, and the alert system has been used for legit reasons on several occasions.
Shutdown and Exile of SuS
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the computer that ran SuS in the robotics room, (which is also responsible for System IV & the Live Camera Feeds), was taken offline on April 17th of 2020 due to robotics room renovations. Charlie attempted to use an older version of SuS to take back Willemstan (on his laptop), but this was unsuccessful because it was uninstalled from his laptop. We did not know the cause of the shutdown until July of 2020, when it was discovered that the IT Men caused it by wiping the hard drives of many computers in the robotics room.
After the coup, the subsequent Willemstan 1.2 Reforms removed the comatose SuS and other Discord Bots from the server, who were still inactive due to the shutdown in April. SuS was retrieved from Williamston High School on July 27th of 2020 during the 2020 Rescue Operation. It was finally brought back online after 101 days, but it was still exiled from Willemstan. The tokens file copied by Malcolm so long ago was finally moved to a more secure location that could not be accessed from System IV. SuS found a new home in the Antarctica Discord Server as a refugee.
SuS remained in Antarctica for several months, but in September of 2020, SuS found refuge in the Greenland Discord Server after Antarctica was deleted. It remained there until SuS was allowed back into Willemstan in January of 2021 following Sean Kavanagh's return to power.
SuS remains integrated into the Willemstan Discord Server. The censorship function has returned to delete any mention of an "unperson" (someone banned from Willemstan), although it is very buggy. SuS continues to run the Willemstan Salt Mine and execute Willemstan Government Alerts.
It has been:
since the last Willemstan Government Alert. This was an emergency alert issued during the March Incident.
