#botally

While there's quite a few Mastodon bots already, I hadn't seen any games implemented until @slipstream mentioned @BotBotBotus , which is a French word-guessing game.

There are a number of Twitter bots that do games, but they're tightly constrained by the character limit. With more space to work with, there's a lot of unexplored possibilities.

bot friends, i added a super-simple code of conduct to botsin.space/about/more any feedback is welcome #botALLY

a couple people have asked me if it's okay for them to sign up on botsin.space and if it's cool for them to run bots there. yes! please do!

but two things:
a) you are subject to my total lack of Docker skills
b) I will add a TOS that will likely amount to "don't abuse people or servers"

a couple other people have wondered​ if there should be a canonical bot server and if botsin.space should be it. If that happens, ok, but personally i won't presume that without a #botALLY conversation about it
