Since Borky's been gone, we have had no trivia bot in IRC. I finally got off my ass and h4x0r3'd an otherwise mildly gay trivia bot (again), gave it a list of about 9999 questions and set the fucker loose.

So, if you're bored as all fuck and chock full of random knowledge, feel free to stop by and trivia your little ass off. The bot can be found at:

For those unfamiliar with IRC, I recommend KVirc, jIRCii, Chatzilla or X-Chat Aqua (for macs).

Extra note #2: There is also a browser based client called Mibbit that can be used in lieu of installing a full client.

Set the settings thusly:

Start the game: !trivia n
Stop the game: !stop
Get a hint: !hint
Skip a question: !skip
Hall of Fame: !hof
List other with: /msg trivcho halp

If the bot isn't on for whatever reason, hassle me in #spite.

Awh, I read that as trev0r and thought you'd named the bot.
I'm sad now.

I did name the bot! The bot is named Quizcho. Mostly because the plugin needs the name to be Quiz-something to work.

How about YOU make a sass-mouthed IRC bot and name him whatever you like! Or better yet: You have a womb! Go make a HUMAN BEING and name it trev0r! Then make sure he grows up wanting to be a gameshow host! Like Mark Frickin' Summers on Double Dare, only more white!

/me drinks your semicolon tears to add extra years to his life.

I demand you remove all but the most mindless of date-related questions!

And, barring that, I'm really glad that the bot has the option of chugging to skip the crap questions. Now I just have to get warmed back up, embrace my new keyboard, and kick some trivia ass.

I'm glad it's back!

nacho@virago:~$ grep -i "name the year" /usr/lib/xchat/plugins/questions|wc -l

Yeeeeah, not sure I have the patience to sort through 2,893 year-questions to weed out the mindless. I could remove them all if you like!

Just added stats for trivia. Boo-yes.

Improved the hint-mechanism to be similar to the old #borky bot, i.e. underscores instead of periods for hidden letters, as well as an altered "beginning or end of line" hint method, which now only does letters from the beginning of the answer. Also added the commands "!bitchslap" and "!8ball," as well as a new phrase to the "!molest" command. The "!nohelp" command shows all the non-standard commands.

The bot is a total jerk now. Yay!

Oh, snap. Trivia is back. Same channel, different bot.
