There are a few bots lurking in the Soylent IRC channels besides the services mentioned above.
Anyone wishing to develop bots should use #test or # for testing.
Please avoid flooding in private establishments and official channels (except #test and #).
||Use the !rss command to see a list of all configured feeds, then use the ! commands from the list to request a particular feed's history. Or just idle in the #rss-bot channel to see all feed outputs as they are picked up.|
Bot projects / task ideas

- a Soylent PBC board meeting assistant script is currently under development for the exec bot, intended for minute taking and publishing on the wiki. See IRC:exec#Meeting_assistant for more details.
- an IRC voting system. refer to IRC:exec#Proposed_IRC_voting_system for details.
