Should we suggest names or are you already choosing?
By all means suggest - but not "in the open" perhaps - PM me
And it's a relief that Cathbard is back - but is d00p gone?

Hummm... I haven't had the pleasure of being kicked out of an irc channel in a while now. Guess I should go visit. :-)

Quote of the week from the IRC goes to "villain"

.:villain:. "Windows should place an "i'm feeling lucky" button instead of "start installation" for their service packs"

#linuxmint is going good there are still times we have no ops or the only op there is afk but usually its good. I was wondering if we could get a bot. mainly for factoids, seen, and the other cool things a bot can do just no Badwords Plugin and don't give it anything higher than voice. A bot isn't a replacement for good ops just a tool to help people.

+1 Definitely useful to have factoids.

Since no one has replied can we just get a bot? if Husse or clem don't like it we could kill it.

I don't necessarily disagree with the idea; but,
Until explicit authorization is given (technically a retraction I suppose), no bots in the channel are permitted.

easiest bot to set up is supybot. a little bit after we lost MintBot someone mentioned that that they had a supybot using the ubotu database. using the ubotu database would stop us from needing to add as many new factoids.


Husse, how do u know when theres a new reply, do you just go through all of your posts or do u have a better way and do you know when someone mentions your name?

A new reply - there's the View your posts option
As soon as a reply has been posted that topic goes to the top of the list - a long list - it's presently 181 pages
There is no such option for mentioning my name - I could always use Google to search the forum but as I get a hit for everyone of my own posts that is a bit overwhelming
For those that does not use the forum much there is an option to get a mail if someone answers your topic

I figured you would have a better way because your the forum admin and you've made 15,420 posts.
