Totally support as long as the thing is understandable for beginners. as the channel is mainly used by them.

hello where are you dev team

Hello guys,
help is arriving! :D

I started to program a bot for this which is still in a very early stage.
But still I hope those are good news for you... and that this project will not... fail... ^^'
So before I start a new Thread about this or something like that I want to ask you about your opinions.

This is what I have so far:


At the moment the Bot returns a random registered room and displays some information about it.
Clicking the Join "button" will let you join the room.
Clicking the beatmap link will direct you to the beatmap.

If we can find a way to make new players know about the bot would be great, since the main problems are with those users who doesn't know how the game/channels work yet (therefore, the spam/nonsense in #lobby).

If you need anything let me know, since I would really like to help (even if I don't know exactly how xD)
I wish you a good work :3

Well if I need some help with testing or something I'll let you know ^^'

Edit:
Should I make a doc somewhere for changelog and to keep you updated or should I post a summary of my accomplishments every day here?

I think there should be a topic listing all users who run bot services. Normally it should be put in developement, but I think stickying it in G&R would give it more exposure. Arguably, it can be considered as part of the gameplay. I can think of tillerino and Tandashi from the top of my head, but I know there are more.

If thats a too much of a debatable option, Tandashi can always make a post about the bot on /r/osugame

@Tandashi Developement is fine for this imo.

@abraker I meant something like a pop up instruction to those who open up #lobby or something like that, since most of the new players don't even look around (forum or chat, it doesn't matter apparently: they don't look at all lol). Making the bot being known via forum is also less effective imo, but let's see how it will be done
Tandashi
Yeah I was thinking of posting it in Development after I have a stable version.
For now you can check the progress, change-log and more on the github page.

It's been a while and #lobby doesn't change magically on its own so I still think this is needed.

IDK if it's been said already, but if this is gonna happen, maybe add a "Free mods: Yes/No" option?


Other than that, yes yes yes yes yes is all I can think to say, this is a great idea, #lobby is HELL rn, and I'd really like to see an actual reason to go there
