To only get recommended something you have not already watched/listened to, type "[PREFIX] recommend [CATEGORY] new [Your Plex Username]".
In addition to a recommendation, the owner of the Plex Server (whoever has the OWNER_DISCORD_ID) will be offered up to five available players that they can have the recommendation automatically play on.
Due to security limitations in the Plex API, this option is only available for the user currently logged into Plex (in this case, the Plex server administrator).
