Chat Bot chatter...   Chat

Not sure if this was intended by the addition of the bots, but it is an added bonus for many who wanted their chats turned on even if an Op wasn't present to turn it on and off :)  *Normally* a log goes off automatically when the last chatter leaves the room.  Since the bot is like a permanent fixture in the room .. once the log is turned on, it appears not to go off until an Op turns it off .. so it seems logs can run 24/7??? 

As a test .. we turned the log on .. with bot present in the room .. left chat and closed everything down.  Upon returning, the log had remained on.

Thank you, Delphi!

I would think so I'll turn mine on now and we can see.

By the way- thanks for providing feedback regarding Java!

Thanks. The bot isn't really stopped, gagging just keeps you from seeing what s/he/it's saying.

That's one of the things, yes!

Though, if memory serves me correctly, in order to keep the logs from becoming unwieldy, it's a good idea to turn them off and then on again occasionally so that they'll restart.

Thank you, CStar ... shouldn't/doesn't the gag by an Op prevent everyone in chat from seeing the message?  Wondering now if 'ignore' will work for each individual chatter... and prevent seeing the bot each time that chatter enters that particular  room... OR will  it  put EVERY bot everywhere on ignore if it does work... /stop brain stop

Great idea, CStar!  Thanks!   We appreciate you!  This can function much the same as one needs to do in a very very busy chat room :)

It doesn't appear that ignore works on the bots.
