Description

One of the "killer apps" for an IRC client seems to be a trivia / quiz bot, someone should write a plugin. ;)

it would probably be good if existing q/a databases from other quiz scripts (for mirc/irssi?) would be supported...

Hi Nightstalker,

I've written a pretty major trivia/quiz script for ircle. However, it is not a bot - bot based trivia games suck bigtime IMHO. I haven't worked on it for a couple of years or so - which is a pity because it is mostly working etc and I use it regularly. http://scripts.currawong.net/iquiz.html

I also try to keep a page with mac based quiz/trivia scripts (not bots) at http://scripts.currawong.net/quiz.html If anyone does write anything or wants a place to archive, mirror, or host their efforts, then please let me know.

I also have another page for non-bot scripts on all platforms - http://scripts.currawong.net/quizscriptdev.html

I am currently working on a different project that is exploring multi-client support (amongst other things). This has given me some exposure to Colloquy scripting.

One of my longstanding future projects is to try to apply multi-client techniques to my trivia script. The more powerful the Applescript support in a client, the more a large script's functions can be supported.

cheers

We don't need tickets for bot ideas! Silly nightstalker. Trying your best to keep me busy :P
