tilde.chat irc bots

you might have seen some bots lurking about in chat. this page is intended to be a common place for documentation.

bots should be well behaved and efficient with system resources. if you see a bot that is not, please remind the botmaster about this and/or notify an admin. naughty bots can make the system less enjoyable for everyone, and we all have to work together to police them.

rules and etiquette for tilde.chat irc bots

your bot must respond to !botlist with the following information: - your system username (as creator/botmaster) - so we can contact you if the bot misbehaves - one line description of the bot's functionality - list of the bots public commands

be conservative about automatically re-connecting to the server or channel.

if your bot's code is not yet stable, keep it in the #bots channel and do testing there.

don't join #chaos or #shitposting unless you want your bot to be spammed to hell and back.
