New-Comment-Bot

Post by Sorunome » Thu Dec 29, 2011 2:01 pm

Well, this is something I've seen in some other formus, and it is VERY usfull:
every time someone makes a post a comment bot posts a link to the post in IRC.
Comment bot also posts username who made the post and wich topic it's in

Hope you get what I mean! :)
Wait, what happened? Oh, you just lost THE GAME

I assume by IRC you mean Internet Relay Chat?

I have to admit I don't see the point. Would you like to elaborate on why this is useful?
What is not the answer to this question?

My thoughts exactly... Wouldn't that just require us to check the IRC instead?

Just to clarify, the way our current system work is like this. First someone posts. Next the post gets put in a list of posts waiting to be approved, only moderators can see this. Then whenever a mod comes online we check the list and approve/disapprove the posts there.

Yeah, but to me its a lot more annoying if you have to refresh the home page continuly to see if new posts have been made, that way you would just have to be on chat and it displays you if a new post has been made.

Ahhh, seems I misunderstood what you meant. And no w just thinking about it, it is an interesting idea. I'll have a chat to the other Moderators about it.

You could make that it hides posts of the games section, so just displays real posts. :P

That is a great idea
When life throws you lemons...
Keep them, cause they are free

A journey of a thousand miles begin with a step...
On a gas pedal.

He who laugh last...
Is the slowest!
