if you are not interested in the news being brought to you, then don't fucking post in the thread. all you do is:
1) Spam. 2) Bump.
if you went into anyone's thread and posted, 'this is shit', where do you think you'd end up? quit with the crap... now.
Right, I saw one member respond, 'How am I supposed to have a conversation with a bot'. Well, for starters your not. That's not the idea. The Idea is to bring news into the forum where news is discussed. If the bot posts news, you can reply if you wish to start a conversation about it. When you read the newspaper at home, do you start talking to it in reply to a an article? Didn't think so, so the same thing applies here.
Enjoy. (spam will be edited, and if it continues from a certain user that user will be warned. Further more leads down the ugly road of 'stupidity got you no where in the end'.
Ok, I have a question. Does it have to clutter the Pub?
moofOk, I have a question. Does it have to clutter the Pub?
The number of posts from the Bot has been lowered. Its now set to post one news article every 4 hours.
I understand this. Yet, perhaps, a daily system would be more effective. 2 to 4 relevant articles, at one time of the day? That might be easier to handle.The current ones tricle like a leaky faucet. The faucet my not be very wasteful, but it's annoying. Also, the bot needs to post more about what the Pub is talking about. It can be a bit random.
moof- Try adding that here. Will probally be more effective in the long run.
why not put the bot in its own forum instead of annoying some ppl by putting it here,
Ok, thank you.
how many threads do you read? i mean, how many threads do you all skip past when you see the title and think not interested? saying it's 'annoying some ppl' is completely irrelevant. if i see a subject i'm annoyed by, or have no interest in, i ignore it, you might want to try doing the same.
yeah but this is kinda filling the forum with mostly useless stuff its not the same as member posts were a person has started it for a set reason its just a bot ripping the news and posting it without any reason or purpose,
as for "how are we supposed to have a convo with a bot" i thought this forum was about discussion and a bot that is just ripping random news wont start that it will just spam, if a member started posting random news that ment nothing really what would you do?
