Assigning a botserv bot to your channel is very easy to do. All that’s required is to do the following.

  1. Pick a name from the list of available bots below.
  2. /bs assign #yourChannel botNick
    (where botNick is the nick of the desired available bot)

At this point, the bot should have joined your channel, and be assigned channel mode +a (its nick will have an & prefixed to it in the nicklist).

Please keep the following in mind:

  • All of the bots perform the same functions; the only difference is their identifiable information – nick, ident, host, and real name.
  • If you feel you have a creative nick, ident, host, and real name for a new bot, please read Can I Make my own BotServ Bot? for information regarding that.

Available Bots

To get a list of available bots, use the command: /msg BotServ BOTLIST

Help! It didn’t work…

If you try to assign a bot and nothing happens, please check your status/server window for any error messages, as these often contain explanations as to why something didn’t work. For example, if you see “[04:10:51] -BotServ- Bot Socretes does not exist.”, you should check the spelling (the real bot is Socrates).

If you do no see an error message, or require further help, stop by #help and network staff will be happy to help you.
