Is there a way to continuously say something.

The reason I am wanting this, it because I am trying to make an advertisement script...

I currently have:
Code:
;--- Menus
menu channel {
  Adverts
  .Set Advert:{ set %ad $$?-"Type your advert in here:" | msg chan <errrmmm...> }
  .Stop:{ unset %ad* }
}

See the /timer command :

timer 2 10 something

will execute 'something' 2 times with a interval of 10 second.

try read /help timers


From the help file:

/timer1 0 20 /ame is AWAY!

Timer1 will repeat an all channel action every 20 seconds until you stop the timer.


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

I currently have this code:
Code:
;--- Menus
menu channel {
  Adverts
  .Set Advert:{ set %ad $$?-"Type your advert in here:" | msg $chan %ad | timer1 0 60 msg $chan %ad }
  .Stop:{ unset %ad* }
}


and all it gives me is:
Quote:
[19:22] <~seanturner70> no.. it won't stop it smirk
[19:22] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
* Timer 1 activated
[19:23] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
<I click stop>
[19:24] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
[19:25] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
[19:26] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
<I click stop multiple times>
[19:27] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!
[19:28] <~seanturner70> AHHH!!!



Is there a fault?
