    So yeah, uh, they show up in IRC now (usually).

    Before you ask, yes, _Tina_ is my bot. Please don't be a dick to it or I won't bother keeping it in the channel.

    Can you explain the nubmer in the bracket after feature test? It has different colours and sometimes it's a minus value on the same colour (we originally thought the colour was an add/replace or delete...)

    I bet you never look at the Recent Changes

    The number in brakets displays the number of characters added to or removed from the edited page.

    "AAA" to "AAAA" → 1
    "AAAA" to "AAA" → -1
    "AAA" to "BBB" → 0

    Which we figured, but doesn't explain the COLOURINGS. =P

    I guess you could say this is a test.

    Cue bitching and/or whining in IRC about this now.

    What happens when someone posts in a special forum like the Tech Lounge or your super secret administrative forums?

    It's a good addition, it could increase interest in the wiki. At least it will create more awareness.

    It silently ignores it. :(

    That is to say, it only reports posts in the following forums:
    7, 10, 1, 13, 41, 44, 42, 40, 39, 12, 22, 4, 36, 33, 15, 8

    ...which is (as far as I know), all Member-accessible forums. None of the admin/tech/oldbie/whatever ones are in that list.

    Member-accessible you said. But also non-members can get into the irc. Just saying.

    I love the idea though.

    Also, if you're going with member-accessible, you forgot 32 and 16.

    Since your incorperating Forum post replies into the bot, why not make a seperate bot for forum replies and wiki edits? That way if we don't want to be updated when someone posts on the forum we can ignore bot 2 without losing the wiki updates.

    Because, quite frankly, the amount of effort required to seperate them is not worth bothering.

    It's possible, of course, but it would require enough work (and would push my concurrent connections to 3) to just not be worth trying.

    Sufficiently knowledgable mIRC scripters know how to seperate them into seperate windows, at least.

    Haha, so I did. Added those to the list as well :P

    you cant just make a copy of the bot and remove features from each?

    It would actually be far simpler, I'm just a) lazy and b) don't feel like managing two IRC connections from one bot.

    Ok, if you don't feel up to that, can you make the pink in my sysop title a different color? I feel like only female sysops should have this color.

    I like the forum post reporting, but maybe MathUser's right—two bots might be better so one can be ignored.

    Personally, I'm fine with it, but whatever.
