Is there a way you can add a bot to chat? It can be extremely simple. Maybe it tells you what time it is and links you to the FAQ page/site rules. That way there's always somebody in chat and indirectly invites more people to come in. I know that IRC has this feature, but the majority of users are using simple chat via web I bet. Average joe is likely not savvy enough to have an IRC client installed.

Or perhaps it's more complex because one of the mod's feels so inclined.

Yes, though I doubt it would get more people into chat.

Chat is a desert these days... Wish there was a way to get more people involved.

That's not a bad idea. Just have a bot that trolls everyone when they enter. It'll make smart remarks (safe for work)... one time everyday upon entering chat.

I played in a CS server with a trivia bot. That was fun.

Maybe if you made a Donlad bot that'd help.

Bot: https://www.eggheads.org/
Games: http://tclarchive.org/search.php?Games

IRC was something else back in the day. Nowadays I have moved past it. Its more of a mobile world now as well. Maybe some type of integration with WhatsApp or Kik or Line.
(https://api.ai/docs/integrations/).

Is the work worth it? No idea..

I did find an open API with trivia questions/answers that could be used. It even has a video games category.

"Minecraft" was released from beta in 2011 during a convention held in which city?

"Paris", "Bellevue", "Las Vegas", or "London"


Las Vegas



Which one of the following actors did not voice a character in "Saints Row: The Third"?

"Sasha Grey","Ron Jeremy","Burt Reynolds","Hulk Hogan"


"Ron Jeremy"

I made a crude TriviaBot for chat.

It should be in there now. When it sees there is someone else in chat, it will begin to ask trivia questions. It asks a question (stating category, difficulty, and possible answers). Then it waits 15 seconds and prints the answer. Then it waits 60 seconds and repeats.

Chat is saved!

Seems cool. Can you slow down the answers -- seems a bit fast after the Question is asked. Maybe 30 seconds?

Someone filed a complaint on TriviaBot ..

Violation: spamming
Reason: Won't stop spamming, can't get the person to respond to anything, just posts trivia.

The problem with too much time is you can just go google the answers. 30 seconds or fewer IMO.

Sorry about that. I rebooted the server this morning for a new kernel and that must have killed it. I haven't set it up to restart automatically yet.

It should be back up now.

I think the bot just spams too much, it makes chat a chore. Though it is a good marketing tool for subtime.

I think it would be better if it only spoke when requested.

"Chatbot stop."

I was going to suggest something like that. I was thinking something more like anyone can whisper to the TriviaBot, either "stop" or "start" and it would obey.

I was also thinking a stop could last for some period of time, like 1 hour, then it would start automatically again. But, maybe it would be best to just have it stay stopped until it was asked to start again.

I could also just shut it down since it's kind of a novelty and maybe the fun is over now.
