The Message Bot


#1194

What happened?


#1195

#1196

I’ve clarified my position on this in that thread, but feel free to @ questions for me here or there if you need more information.


#1197

Well, now is a good as time as any to ask I guess. @milla

If co-owners were to become a thing, and you could give someone OP access on your server, would this decision make it impossible for someone (cough, me) to set up a service for running the bot?

Also, could owners who want to use this add a warning to their welcome message? For example:

IMPORTANT: Any messages sent in this chat will be mirrored to the server’s Discord server


#1198

Dave and I haven’t discussed this yet, so no policy is set, and I have no clue about the co-owner thing, since it’s all theoretical.

I found out about this in the other thread seconds before I posted there, so this is very new to me right now.

Questions about policy should wait. Right now I can only answer re. my views.


#1199

Would it make any difference if it’s a special command you have to type for the messages to be transferred to Discord like “/discord make me admin plz”


#1200

The base functionality is a big picture issue. It’s just a flat no from me. I wish it had never been created. This makes me wish Message Bot had never been created.


#1201

By the way guys,discord is really good on security. I mean,by what H4 said to some people (if I’m correct) that its impossible to hack discord. I think Wingy and Bib should tighten up and make it more to the point where its hard to hack into. I don’t know but that’s my opinion. Beta testers for Message Bot?
Here’s what it would look like when i open the discord thing on messaging bot.


#1202

What do you mean by making the MessageBot hard to hack into?


#1203

Quick question: when you use the /where extension

Does it only show where the player is only if he/she joined the world that has the message bot on it.
Or
It only shows where he/she is if the player joined an other world that also has the message bot on it.


#1204

Milla’s point is that there should be no connection at all between the game chat and Discord. Period.


#1205

@Gamarlamar5 The Last Seen extension is currently not doing anything, as it is “commented out”.

@jemnidad I have received permission from @majicDave to have messages from discord to in-game, but not the other way around.


#1206

So now if someone says something bad on discord, your server could get locked because of it?


#1207

I’m not sure I see the point of that, but ok.

@Kp7 you can limit who has access to your Discord server. It wouldn’t be much different than who might log into your server and say something bad. If no admins or mods are online that might carry on for a long time.


Discord Message Bot Extension
#1208

Discord is in the extension store.


#1209

Just note that if you run messagebot on your world and I lock it down because of Discord misconduct you have no recourse to that fact. I’m going to treat all in-world chat as he responsibility of the world owner, since I have no way to ID the perpetrator. This means that of someone in Discord breaks our rules on your world then you will be receiving the punishment.
