hi mrcoolbp. if you're keen to muck around with irc bots, i can help set you up with an exec bot, or if you want you can make an irc script without any need to code any irc-related stuff. the translate script is pretty simple []. it's pretty basic but like arti mentioned it lends itself to tinkering due to process separation. info here: [] source here: [] also, whilst the irc bot itself is php, scripts can be in any langage you can run from the cli (including compiled binaries) anyways, drop me a line if you want. chromas is also into php and pascal bot development. xlefay is also a php guy though he's keen to develop a bot using python. i think he's pretty keen to get some collaboration going too. cheers. ~ crutchy 23:29, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
hi mrcoolbp. re: "Get email and IRC "!suggestions" piped directly to wiki)" from the CommunitySupport page, this is currently available for anyone identified with NickServ with the ~suggest, ~suggest-api and ~suggest-exec IRC commands. It uses the exec wiki account, which is set as a bot (so changes don't appear in wiki recent changes list by default) and the bot flag is required for writing to the wiki using the mediawiki api. Anyway, all my github source is gpl2 so feel free to pilfer (if any of it is useful). IRC automation is probably the one area that I enjoy and seem to be able to do fairly easily, so if there are any other IRC automation tasks on anyone's todo lists that don't already have someone allocated to them, I'm happy to give it a shot. Anyway, sorry for filling up your talk page. Have a great day. ~ crutchy 22:33, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
hi mrcoolbp. regarding the Facebook page for SoylentNews (and syndicated newsfeed), as discussed on IRC I can volunteer to create and run it. May also add some additional admins from your team, if they have accounts on Facebook.
