If you join the #dutchnano channel on Freenode, you'll see
among the list of chatters. She is a chatbot - more specifically a warbot. This means that she can signal the start and end of a wordwar, as well as keep track of your score. She can be controlled with a set of simple commands that you just need to say in the chatroom.
Notice that most of the commands start with a dot!
.war [starttime] [endtime]
She'll tell you when to start and stop writing at the times you specify. You'll need to use a 24-hour format, like so:
.war 14:20 14:40
.war busy [endtime]
If a war is already in progress and you just want her to end it, this is the way to let her know. Instead of a starttime, you use the word busy.
.score [warnr] [score]
Register your score with this command. Don't worry too much about the war number - she will tell you what it is when the war starts and when it ends.
If you want a personal notification 10 seconds before the war starts, and another one the moment the war ends, use this command. Phenny will mention your nick in the chatroom. Many chat clients will give you a signal when that happens!
Warnr is the number of the war. Phenny announced this.
If you change your mind and don't want to participate after all, you can use this command to stop Phenny from highlighting you.
If you need some help, there are a few topics she knows about. If you have a request for something else she should know about, don't hesitate to ask venefyxatu!
