Would it be possible to have new posts be copied to IRC so people monitoring that can see if there are any replies yet? If there's an RSS feed for the topics there's probably already a bot written somewhere that you could use.

We used to have an IRC bot that integrated with Drupal, but it seems that Dreamhost's acceptable use policies don't allow us to run an IRC bot on the Community site anymore. If anyone else wants to run such a bot from a different server (using public RSS feeds etc.) I have no objection to that bot being present on the IRC.

I was logged on to two computers earlier and noticed that the online list counted both computers as logged in.

The only RSS feed I can tell is http://community.botball.org/forum?q=rss.xml and that is only for articles. Is there another one that has forum posts?
