Global message delivery is getting a makeover! Check out this note for further information.
  1. Access list — make sure you're listed here
  2. Update the "Spam" page appropriately.
    • The key is a unique string. It ensures that in case the bot has to restart (due to a Toolserver hiccup or an API hiccup or whatever), people will not receive the same message twice. The string can be anything, but for simplicity's sake, just add one to the current count. If you have to restart the bot because for some reason it didn't work (e.g. because the target wasn't in the correct format), you still have to change the key.
      • At present it is a four-digit number, the simplest thing to do is to increment it.
    • Follow the guidelines at Global message delivery.
