    The old bot responded to !r42 (without a space) I still see people trying this format, suggest adding it to the new bot.

    Aye, the old bot (on the IRC server) had each release hardcoded to allow !r42 to work. (The entire string 'r42' was the command, and this method required manual changing of the source code as new releases were added)

    So the drawback to having a full listing of all the releases and being able to allow staff to pre-populate the data file with future release info is to have the space; of course in programming anything can be accomplished, however in this case the Bot Command Interpreter library would have to be modified.

    Ahh fair enough I'll continue to point out the new command until they catch on. ;)

    Hi @Ravalox,

    How about a !rift with a current lunar rift destination?

    I'd suggest an output like:
    The Shattered Moon is in %phase% for the next %mins:secs%. Lunar rifts will take you to %town%.

    Great Idea! Also planning on expanding the !time function to show the in game date/time, I could add that time stamp here too.

    SotAbot in it's current form is specific to the Shroud Discord server due to functions that Portalarium uses internally. A version that can be distributed is planned, but is not currently available.

    Would be nice if there was a !lostvale command that would let you know when the next portal opens and/or when it closes.

    Cool, I didn't see it on the command list thread.
