its a bit much, i think remove youtube, and tourny advertisement (it shud be on banner as advertisement is enuff) make the tips n hints spam bit less often. change the auto message of bot hoster to a shorter one line txt "Gamebot has hosted a game GOW"

Maybe it should be changed to a 30 min idle wait.

It's only going off every 4 minutes, has to be a pretty dead channel to look like that.

Ill change it to 6 minutes.

Not all people can see the banner advertisements + the banners are not always up and ready yet when the tournament is announced.

I'm not on very often, but hardly ever conversation in channel when I do get on.  current interval times work for me.

youtube bot was at 20 minutes, i put it to 30. tips are at 15 and i left them there. I could remove tips entirely, a few people have said they learned something new from them but in general I doubt there's enough newbs around for it to make much of a difference. idle messages are pretty harmless, greet messages are muuuuch more annoying, they probably shouldn't be used at all ever in the main channel. (though there is a nice script that lets you send 1 greet per user per period of time, which is acceptable.)

As long as the bots are following orders I'm happy.

Once they start stepping out in rebellion...it's time to draw steel boys.
