I was wondering if scripts and bots are okayd by IRC Servers or if it's just how they are used. If this is different for some servers, I am on DALnet.

If you type in your status window "/motd" then read the text you see there, then it shurley tells you if you are allowed to use bots or not.. and for script, no one can say you cant use them, they maybe can say somthing if you using a script to abuse channels or users "flood clones or other scripts made for flood people out from irc".. i hope i understod your question right smirk

Sure they can say you can't use them, several scripts are banned on DALnet.

Basically, if you want a script that is not banned make sure it is a script that is trusted. I personally don't recomment full-scripts, but if you really want one the one that is probably most "approved" would be Peace and Protection. http://www.scriptheaven.net/article172.html But like I said, if you can avoid using a full script, then you probably should.

Fact is, just about every full script out there either has backdoors, it has horrible and pointless replacers that use stupid letters and colors that might clash with a user's personal settings, and virtually all of em spam the crap out of users on every occasion. In general, they suck. With a few exceptions like PnP. Never tried it tho, and I'm sure it has kazillions of options you don't need.

It is possible that in time people will trust it providing that you are honest and ethical from DAY 1. The slightest suspicion of a backdoor and people will say no. I have a script that is used and trusted by thousands, though largely confined to the network I use because the script is designed specifically for CR powered networks though has been known to work well on many other IRCds. However I can't recommend my script at the moment because I have discontinued it until I do a makeover on it.

As for PnP, I tried it once. It's not bad though I found the install routine a bit slow. Having said that I believe it is trustworthy enough to recommend.

How tru. Did a voris/trojan scan on NoName, and scoop, and few tohers. lol, the programs like "port-f****, mario (fake emulator) and other .exe's int he scrtips are all backdoors. They give the otuward appearance of a game, but mess your computer up as you play.

....sad
