Request: idle bot module

Post by pete212 » Fri Apr 01, 2005 2:13 am

is there any module for an idle bot? (remember i dont have service on my box) i dont really care for commands or features, just a bot that idles in the chan and doesnt move unless the irc server goes down?

I just installed the 'eggdrop' client. It will connect to a defined set of channels and sit on them. It will also give a defined set of users +o on the channels. So far its working for me. I too dont want to get involved in the complication of services for my application.

Make your own bot . Get a clean client ie mirc and set it to join all channels on connect . Easy :D
Yawn. So there's yet another "if the user clicks the button, they're infected" exploit. Why is this news? We already know users are idiots.

No.

Using XChat is the closest you can come to something stable. If you use mIRC with wine, then you will have numerous problems.

Any linux client will do . Sure one of em will allow you to do it . Got to ask why you want a bot in chan that does nothing tho . Is it just to keep the channel open ? .

The official channels block/feature will accomplish what you want, see the documentation for full details.

Use ChanServ mlock and keep topic, and use official channels to keep it in /list

Uh, that seems to do all you want it to!

More to that, to QUOTE from the documentation:

4.34 - Official Channels Block OPTIONAL

Syntax:


Official channels are shown in /list even if no users are in the channel. The topic is optional and is only shown in /list if it has 0 users.

So Official Channels CAN keep topics as well!

Well what you're requesting can't really be done inside the IRCd cleanly. Have you looked into getting eggdrops?

Why can't you run services? Process limits? Get a better shell provider :)
