Managing Bots

Multiple Bots

Bots can be connected to multiple networks. For example you can have a bot that connects to Freenode, and another that connects to Mozilla’s IRC network.

Multiple bots for the same network / server is not supported at this time.



Before logging any public channels, take a couple simple steps to ensure no misunderstandings occur.

  1. Have the consent of a channel operator.
  2. Ask the operator to make it clear in the channel topic that it is being logged.

Freenode’s channel guidelines don’t seem to address non-operator users who want to run bots. (see final bullet point) Our preference is to favor honesty and transparency.
