IRC Logger 2 FAQ
Can you log my IRC channel ?
Yes, as long as the channel respects a few conditions :
If your channel respects those 3 requirements, you can contact me to ask
to add your channel.
- The bot is welcome to log the channel.
The channel ops must agree that the bot will log the channel.
The IRC server operators must also allow bots on their network.
Freenode and OFTC allow them.
- The users must be warned that the channel is logged. Some IRC server
operators require it and it's normal too. As the logs are for everybody,
everybody must be able to find the logs easily. For those reasons,
the channel topic must contain a link to colabti.org or a direct link to
the logs of the channel. For example:
FooProject: http://fooproj.org | Logs at http://colabti.org
To improve the chance users see the warning, it's also highly recommended
to link to the logs on your project web site.
- The IRC channel serves a Free/Libre or Open Source project.
How can I contact you ?
You can contact me (nickname feb) by IRC on the channel
Where can I download the source code ?
The source code of the bot is currently not available for download.
What about the privacy of the users on the channels ?
To protect the users, there are a few protections in the service :
As IRC channels are public places, other users could misuse what
someone said. So regardless of the presence of the bot, one should always
be careful of what he says or does online.
- Search bots are forbidden to index the logs via robots.txt
- Email addresses are hidden in the logs. This is useful for badly
behaving bots which try to harvest email addresses.
- Lines starting with [OFF] won't appear in the logs.
Where can I ask other questions ?
