Original and unique idea's needed
« on: January 30, 2013, 02:33:20 pm »
Alright, im building an irc-like bot however its not using irc, and the chat system works the same way as irc does.

With this in mind, I am looking for original, unique idea's for commands a user can use and interact with for entertainment or whatnot.

it's text-based, so keeping that in mind, im a bit restricted (i.e. no GUI).

The reason im asking this is because theres a 85% chance that what you thought of is already taken by other user-made bots, and im looking for something fresh.

So something that can be used for entertainment, games, getting something, or whatnot just as long as its text-based. I can't do anything like a full-on text rpg tho.

If you have an idea go ahead and post it, i'll get back and tell you if thats already taken.

A few idea's that are already used:
- definitions
- nicknames
- youtube/google/google image search
- roleplaying
- guess my number
- hang man
- messaging other rooms (rooms are the irc equivalent of channels)
- PMing people
- uno

It's rather hard thinking of things since i'm not the creative type of person, lol.

EDIT: make sure its something achievable with the python programming language :P

Idk if this would work, or even be good, but what about something where you message the bot a shell command, and it messages back the results? Like an IRC shell... you could have it integrated with albethro's shell accounts (this isn't very thought-out, obviously :-P)

Python is turing-complete, so you should be able to do literally anything.

Would it be possible to have x-y output, so you can write to any row?

I think it would be cool to have a quirks function similar to pesterchum. (It's clientside)

nope, it can send text-based messages and it can get text-based messages. Wish that were true tho :/


and what is pesterchum? I'll see if i can look it up
