Oppose - I never really saw the point in this bot being brought into the channel. It does almost nothing that Evilbot wasn't already doing, or could easily be made to do with `setcommand. Also, I see that nobody other than Exor has actually commented with an explanation or reason for their position... Michagogo (talk) 13:13, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

Point of Order - You had no problem with Elunebot when you were free to abuse it as you saw fit. Once Elune had the common sense to ignore you for mis-use, (Along with Evilbot for a period of time), these commands went away. You're bitter because you're a little further away from ruining the channel Slayer helmet (c)Immo Voted Worst Wikian 2013 Slayer cape (t) 07:54, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
My opinion has nothing to do with that. Not to mention that Elune did that before the bot ever joined the channel. Michagogo (talk) 10:46, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
  1. "I never really saw the point in this bot being brought into the channel" - you want to merge Elunebot with Evilbot, yet you support keeping bullbot separate when all it does is link?
  2. "It does almost nothing that Evilbot wasn't already doing" - none of Elunebot's functions are duplicated by Evilbot.
  3. "or could easily be made to do with `setcommand" - let's see what happened the last time you used `setcommand/`unsetcommand:

Evil1888's Evilbot

One of the channel's existing bots. Evilbot has wikilinking; with this, the channel members are able to use the familiar [[Page name]] and {{Template name}} syntax to create clickable http:// links. Evilbot supports creating custom commands for the fun of channel members, but this can also be used to create link shortcuts.

Support Keeping - It's pretty much a given that the `tell feature exists in the channel. A large percentage of the IRC base uses it from time to time. Minimal spammy commands (When Micha isn't around), and some decent features in setevent and such. Slayer helmet (c)Immo Voted Worst Wikian 2013 Slayer cape (t) 04:33, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Good back-up for bullbot. Also like Immo said the `tell and `setevent commands are invaluable to irc users. User:Exor Solieve 04:45, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support - Yep. Because of `tell, which is good when you want to reach a user whose MemoServ inbox is full, or one who doesn't check MemoServ notices; `setevent for the ping list; being a backup for bullbot. Basically per Exor, but with a bit more reasoning. Lol  a proofreader ▸  06:50, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and also as a backup for the rare occasions when bullbot fails. Michagogo (talk) 13:13, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

rscript.org's RuneScape:Off-site/IRC/RuneScript

One of the channel's existing bots. RuneScript allows users to look up the skill levels of a named player, the Grand Exchange price of a named item, the availability of a given name; it allows users to perform calculations and Google searches, and more. RuneScript's Grand Exchange update notifications are required by TyBot's Exchange namespace updater to function. Its commands are detailed here.

RuneScript is assumed to be grandfathered, so silence in 2 weeks will imply consent to keep the bot. Comments may still express support and opposition explicitly.

arble's bullbot

One of the channel's existing bots. bullbot has wikilinking; with this, the channel members are able to use the familiar [[Page name]] and {{Template name}} syntax to create clickable http:// links. It normally doesn't link to a page that doesn't exist, but can be made to do so by adding an @ in front of the opening brackets of the wikilink.

bullbot is assumed to be grandfathered, so silence in 2 weeks will imply consent to keep the bot. Comments may still express support and opposition explicitly.

Weak support - Bullbot has been the most reliable of all the channel bots to date, however it would be more useful if it had more functions integrated into what has proven to be a reliable platform over the years. 222 talk 06:52, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support - It is a good wikilinker. We don't have a limit on how many bots in the channel, so I don't see why we are seeing the need to move functions to other bots. 22px-Logo.svg.png22#.png 14:14, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support - While Evilbot does have wikilinking capability, all it does is throw whatever's within the [[brackets]] after http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/, while bullbot is actually smart about it, checking for existance, etc. Except for the capitalization fails. Michagogo (talk) 13:13, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

So are you saying that Evilbot's wikilinking is incapable of being improved? Why can't we annex bullbot to another bot? Comments like this that do not address the suggestion to merge the bot are unhelpful and should be disregarded by whoever makes the final decision. Σ (talk) 01:20, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
No, I'm not saying it's incapable of being improved, and I'm not saying it couldn't be integrated into another bot. All I'm saying is, that's the case right now. Right now, bullbot's wikilinking is better than Evilbot's. Michagogo (talk) 10:49, October 29, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - bawt is approved. If Evilbot does get a function to check if the page exists, and if it works as flawlessly as bullbot does now, this bot can be removed though. As long as this is not the case, bullbot is approved. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:48, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
