old infobot used to be able to pick up things it knew an answer to, without a question mark at the end of the line.. like: <yeled> dumb bot <infobot> YES I AM! now I've moved to mozbot: <yeled> dumb bot <yeled> mozbot, dumb bot <mozbot> yeled: YES I AM!
Created attachment 82445 [details] edited Infobot module not requiring " ? " to retrieve a factoid hi there, that was one of the first things i changed about the Infobot module when i got mozbot, attached you will find a version of the Infobot.bm file that doesnt require a ? to retrieve a factoid.
<Hixie> mozbot: hi <mozbot> hi Hixie <Hixie> dumb bot <mozbot> :( But I see what you mean about factoids, that could be useful I guess... I'll look at the patch. Only 18 months late... Ahem...
ok. added eagerToHelp mode. (also added ridiculouslyEagerToHelp mode...)
Thanks hixie. lemme try this out.
I guess infobot users are used to this, but I find it kinda annoying :-) It makes mozbot say he doesn't know the answer everytime I make a typo in a mozbot command. Did infobot actually claim ignorance when handling stuff like this?
