Praise

Purpose

Hand out praise to IRC denizens with this plugin.

Usage

Praise is a plugin for … well, praising things. Feel free to add your own flavor to it by customizing what praises it gives. Use “praise add <text>” to add new ones, making sure to include “$who” in <text> where you want to insert the thing being praised.

Example:

  • If you add hugs $who
  • Someone says @praise ChanServ.
  • * bot hugs ChanServ
