Metal_Man88/Metal_Sonic

From Sonic Retro

Jump to: navigation, search

This was #retro's IRC relay bot. What did it relay? Well, whatever Tina reported about the wiki, new threads, etc.

It consisted of an IRC client with 5 lines of code that relayed text back to the main channel, and was programmed to try its best to remain authenticated. Not much else.

It was made in response to constant complaining about Tina, which annoyed Xkeeper and caused Tina to be moved to a separate reporting channel. Tweaker still wanted the reporting function to be done in the main channel, so Metal_Man88 made a relay script to do just that. That way, any future complaints... would have to go through Metal_Man88 instead.

The basic technology remains should it or something similar ever be needed again.
