Karma

Purpose

Plugin for keeping track of Karma for users and things in a channel.

Usage

Provides a simple tracker for setting Karma (thing++, thing–). If config plugins.karma.allowUnaddressedKarma is set to True (default since 2014.05.07), saying boats++ will give 1 karma to boats, and ships-- will subtract 1 karma from ships.

However, if you use this in a sentence, like That deserves a ++. Kevin++, 1 karma will be added to That deserves a ++. Kevin, so you should only add or subtract karma in a line that doesn’t have anything else in it. Alternatively, you can restrict karma tracking to nicks in the current channel by setting config plugins.Karma.onlyNicks to True.

If config plugins.karma.allowUnaddressedKarma` is set to `False, you must address the bot with nick or prefix to add or subtract karma.

Commands

clear [<channel>] [<name>]
Resets the karma of <name> to 0. If <name> is not given, resets everything.
dump [<channel>] <filename>
Dumps the Karma database for <channel> to <filename> in the bot’s data directory. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
karma [<channel>] [<thing> …]
Returns the karma of <thing>. If <thing> is not given, returns the top N karmas, where N is determined by the config variable supybot.plugins.Karma.rankingDisplay. If one <thing> is given, returns the details of its karma; if more than one <thing> is given, returns the total karma of each of the things. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent on the channel itself.
load [<channel>] <filename>
Loads the Karma database for <channel> from <filename> in the bot’s data directory. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
most [<channel>] {increased,decreased,active}
Returns the most increased, the most decreased, or the most active (the sum of increased and decreased) karma things. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
