    I just had a really good yet simple idea! A plugin that automatically responds with a certain message if a player says a specific word. Say if someone says "how do I register?" (despite it being written everywhere... lol) it returns a defined message saying "To register, use "/register [password] !". It'd probably need to be group-specific so people don't get spammed with certain messages when they talk.

    Anyone up for this? :rolleyes:

    Thanks! It's similar to just having a noob rank that gets spammed with protips by auto broadcast but more effective I imagine :)

    It would probably be easy to add this onto AutoBroadcast, just add a keyword option to the config that is a list of strings to listen for.

    Well, its been added to autobroadcast (thanks Ijwu), just download it again and it should show up in your config. (I'll also hopefully be making a new config editor sooner or later).
    where???

    Maybe once I work out the glitches and make it fully editable outside of code ^^
    Which could be a while... I have lots of things to do :/

    Found a bug, when there's a group listed for an announcement with trigger terms, it tells the whole group that announcement. Whereas if there's no specific group it just tells the person who said the trigger term. Could somebody please fix this? Thanks!

    Ijwu designed it that way in the first place, then he added a config option and must not have removed it for when there's no specific group? I'll look into it.

    Hey I was wondering if the AutoBroadcast has this trigger feature installed yet? I DL the AutoBroadcast, create a Config but cant find anything that resembles a trigger terms field.. Am I being dumb?
