Quizbot - Collection of suggestions to make him less spammy

Post by Meskalin » Sat Jun 13, 2015 10:27 pm

What's up?

Even though I got most likely positive feedback on my Quizbot, I don't want any players to be pissed. With this thread I'm trying to be polite and respectful, so i expect the same thing from you, don't flame. Special thanks to Rapture for being one of a few "contras" who actually gave me constructive hints and not just insult me for no obvious reason.

I can understand, that you are annoyed by the spam, so here are some quick suggestions from me for you:
  • Just mute the bot if the spam of other players is not too heavy
  • Do /dnd - You can still be contacted, but wont see any of the spam anymore
  • Try to kick him
  • Try to kick players who are just spamming answers (absurd amount)
Now a short list of suggestions that you gave to me:
  • Force leave after X games. [Already done (set to 3 games)]
  • Force leave if the bot detects too many players spamming
  • If many people are playing, ask questions less frequent
  • Don't let the bot join Brutal servers: players need to concentrate
Now here are my questions to you. Which of the suggestions above you think are most important (make a ranking if you want)? Do you have any suggestions that you feel should also be mentioned? Let me know!

Also a quick note: I did not develop this bot to annoy anyone, I did to entertain people, especially while being dragged or something.

Greetings

I'm the most raging tee on this, but...

I think that unability to join brutal server is good idea, also less questions when more people.
When there are 32 people on server and every second responds to that it's kinda anoying.
...
Just make it less anoying to all people which are playing.

What about making it write in teamchat? Teams won't be annoyed of messages, and questions will be easier to recognize.

Very good idea, but this kinda destroys the idea od playing while being dragged, but ill be thinking about this to find a possible solution, thank you!

Ok ill see if i can think of a good formula to calculate how many messages to send every minute based on the peoples messages per minute to slow it down.
Thanks for staying calm, noone reaches anything by raging plus im more or less on your side, i do not get anything from running the bot actually.

On tournament servers there is enough spam even without this bot :p It would be rather senseless to make him join them, since it would be nearly impossible to notice question between tons of other messages...
