As you may have noticed, we built a comment bot for Hive and it has been operational for some weeks now. We are still working out some kinks and additional features.
🥦 how it works 🥦
- bot scans all hive transactions, constantly
- if the bot-command (
!WEED) is in the
bodyof a comment, the bot checks:
- if the user has successfuly used the bot in the last 24h
- ìf the user has enough WEED CASH tokens staked (420)
- if the user isn't op
- if all above criteria are matched:
- the bot votes the op
- the bot transfers WEED to op
- the bot stores the operation in its persistent DB
The original reply gets edited until it reaches 4 users, to avoid spam.
Right now I (@felixxx) am rebuilding the block-stream, to make it more robust. Hive nodes are unreliable and hive-engine nodes even more so.
Obviously, the bot can not trigger on every command; this could be easily abused and cause spam.
There are many ways to solve this issue, and if you can put it into plain English, I can probably code it that way.
As this is being used by a community, I'd like to ask the community how to go about some questions, but please keep in mind, that we want a non-intrusive bot and not annoy people. Please also consider how there will always be people trying to abuse a service like this and that we have to make sure this is not worth the effort:
Should the bot trigger only on main posts?
...or should the bot also trigger on replies? (as it does now)
If so: how deep?
Should replies be treated differently than main posts?
Should the bot only be useable every 24h?
It could work on a precharge basis, where users can charge the bot with WEED.
It could also be any number of hours.
Or a mix of both?
Are there any other features you would like to see?
I can give the bot a discord functionality, so it can do jobs on Discord, too.
Registration, charging, triggering... again:
if you can put it into plain English, I can probably code it that way.
If I like the feature and it is easy to build, I can add it to the bot.
If it gets complicated or is something I don't enjoy building, you can always pay me 💵.
I (@felixxx) am building this in my spare time and for free.
If you want access to the code or if you want a custom built bot for your community, contact me here or better on Discord.
