TheNunOwnedGoat Posted March 28, 2007 Share Posted March 28, 2007 So this whole countdown has got me thinking of how soon it would be till summer and my daily Big Brother rituals would begin. Long story short, I started thinking about how Morty often had to down-size his site to conserve bandwidth, and I was thinking of those moments when everyone wants to know who won the POV competition and the site is flooded. That made me start thinking... you know those AIM bots, like SmarterChild that will automatically talk to you? Morty needs to get one! That way, people can add the "MortyBot" to their buddy lists, and when they IM it, the bot can say something like, "Press 1 to get the latest updates from the BB House." If the person presses 1, it can give the latest details such as "Joe Schmo won HOH and nominated Dude and Dudette. Dude won the POV and used it on himself. Joe Schmo nominated John Doe in his place." It would would be off-server, so it wouldn't take up the bandwidth resources that the normal site requires. I looked it up (google "build AIM bot"), and it seems that it requires some programming knowledge, which I have none. There's also a BuildABot site, but unless you're willing to pay for it, it has very limited responses. Does anyone know/be willing to build a bot for the upcoming BB season? It would be very cool and easy way to manage some of the bandwidth. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
