The recommended method to continuously execute view.wait in discord.py is through the use of an event loop. This can be achieved using the asyncio library in Python.

Here is an example code snippet that demonstrates how to use the asyncio event loop to continuously execute view.wait:

import asyncio
from discord.ext import commands

bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='!')

@bot.command()
async def example(ctx):
    view = SomeView()
    await ctx.send("Here's an example message!", view=view)

    # Start the event loop
    while True:
        try:
            await bot.wait_for('message', check=lambda msg: msg.author == ctx.author, timeout=60.0)
        except asyncio.TimeoutError:
            await view.stop()
            break

In this example, we define a command called "example" that sends a message along with a customized view. We then enter an infinite loop using "while True" and use "bot.wait_for" to continuously wait for user input on this message.

The "check" parameter in bot.wait_for lambda function ensures that only the author of the original message can interact with the view. And we exit the loop after a timeout period of 60 seconds has been reached.

Note that running an infinite loop like this can be resource-intensive for your bot, so ensure that you are handling events correctly to avoid any potential memory issues.
