QuoteGrabs

Purpose

Quotegrabs are like IRC sound bites. When someone says something funny, incriminating, stupid, outrageous, … anything that might be worth remembering, you can grab that quote for that person. With this plugin, you can store many quotes per person and display their most recent quote, as well as see who “grabbed” the quote in the first place.

Usage

Stores and displays quotes from channels. Quotes are stored randomly and/or on user request.

Commands

get [<channel>] <id>
Return the quotegrab with the given <id>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
grab [<channel>] <nick>
Grabs a quote from <channel> by <nick> for the quotegrabs table. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
list [<channel>] <nick>
Returns a list of shortened quotes that have been grabbed for <nick> as well as the id of each quote. These ids can be used to get the full quote. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.

Returns <nick>’s latest quote grab in <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
