Enhancement support request[edit]

Hello,

I would like to offer a patch to fix to add some detection for question marks.

This would allow to avoid this kind of automated replies I've seen on #mediawiki: - ! [remote rejected] API_Versioning -> API_Versioning (can not update the reference as a fast forward) - ok, you just typed an exclamation mark with no meaning in the channel, good job. If you want to see a list of all keys, check !botbrain

I cloned the GitHub repository but can't find this string inside.

Where is the source code currently used live? --Dereckson (talk) 00:44, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Move page to mediawiki / wikitech?[edit]

Heya,

Is there a specific reason this page is on meta? Or can we move it either to Mediawikiwiki or Wikitech? Drdee (talk) 16:38, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

@instance[edit]

The command @instancewould seem to need to be explained/documented.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:20, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Why, billinghurst? It's a root only command. Everyone with that level of access should know the format for it which is @instance <bot instance> #<channel>. {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 13:46, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
    Because all the other root commands have been documented, and there will be new root users. Documentation should be complete wherever we are, not components being implicit.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:54, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
    • I have no objections except that last I knew, the command could cause the bot to crash and generally shouldn't be used. I'm not sure if it is more stable now or not. I should look at the code sometime and see if I can't make some other fixes as well. I just don't have time for a project of that scale right now. Feel free to add it if you see fit. I've given you all of the needed information here. :) {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 14:05, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
