Just a thought

Regarding discussions taking place in MBN/#LBA:
Do you think we could start not using words like "gay, cock, wank, fuck" every 2 seconds?

Thanks.

Umm...wow, has the channel degraded this much since I've left it all those years ago?



Offtopic: anybody know how to put a bot on a channel? I'd appreciate it if someone PM'ed me with some info.

yeah, i was wondering that myself, and since this thread have no specific subject, it isnt offtopic chat imo.

I think you got to host it in a server.. and then have that server on 24/7..

thats all they told me in some channels when i asked about it. They ironically said "go to #bots "

Right, I've been looking into them online. Most sites say you need to know coding well to make one, but I'm just looking for a run-of-the-mill one that can basically keep a channel open, prevent floods, and op certain people.

Any ideas?

Sorry for the offtopic, Annie.

Yeah, that is retarded. It's dumb for people who really want to enjoy the channel, and you have to put up with little hax0r brats and whatnot.

No

You're welcome

Now, but seriously, what's the problem? They're not used so often. Only when the situation calls it. IRC chat is more colloquial, more direct, worrying so much about things is just wrong. Let the conversations flow.

P.S.: I'm writing a big #LBA faq/guide/documentation thingy. I'm hoping it'll guide the newbies into... non-newbies before we get pissed at them and kick them out.

-

Edit: I didn't see the other posts. Double-J, it's a popular saying that if you don't know how to have a bot, you probably shouldn't have one. The keyword you want is "eggdrop" in anyway. In order to get a decent bot, you'll need a 24/7 unix box and eggdrop.

No, it is almost impossible to have a serious conversation without getting a reply that includes "wank" or something.

Talking about wanking should occur when..erm, we're talking about wanking.
I believe it shouldn't get involved with other topics.

But hey, if anyone thinks it's that funny, knock yourself out, i'm just expressing an opinion here.

If most people agrees with that conversation, count me in at the IRC channel the next half year(again).

Let's not go too far, shall we?
Criticizing is fine, but you could try and be just a little more constructive.

#lba is still a fun place to be, even if it's a little vulgar at times, and even though it isn't up to your standards

Blissful--->You're not alone. In the #LBA, I was trying to say hello a hundreds of time, while there are tens of people there. That's why I tried to start a campaign (Inside "The site & the forum") about reviving the IRC activities instead of letting them be idle, but that thread was closed a few days later. What a dissappointment! I am the last man in this dead IRC.

Illumina: #lba is a relatively very active channel, I don't know why you think it's dead. Also, you go there once every 4 months or something.

Also, I don't remember saying anything vulgar to anyone when he was talking to me seriously.

Illumina: Nice calculations. Umm, yeah.

My point, as i already explained about twice, is that it is annoying when a serioues conversatoin is going on, and someone says something liek "something something wank something something ass"

I'm not going to name names or quote peope, but let's just say this happens a lot in #lba.
