Title: [RELEASED] @mention notification bot - now with Telegram
Post by: Piggy on September 07, 2018, 09:13:28 AM
STATUS: Up

A list of subscribed users accepting notification will be kept updated automatically in this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023605.msg45324744#msg45324744



Short version:
You can try the new notification system,  based on your preference below set up where you want to be notified. After the registration you will receive a message confirming you are signed up and some basic information.



I want to be notified through PM in the forum:
Send a pm to Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) by placing in the subject subscribe with something in the body just to be able to send it or, if you want to change the frequency which you will receive the PM notifications you can send this command with a number between 0 and 720, this indicates the delay in minutes which will occur from the first notification before it will be delivered. Is 0 for new people subscribing which, means it will be instant:

Code:
notificationinterval:2



I want to be notified through Telegram:
Important:
Before or after you have registered you need to contact @Maggiordomo_Service_bot (https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=@Maggiordomo_Service_bot) on telegram (with the same telegram username used for registering) and just write something to him so he can bind your telegram and forum account togheter.

Send a pm to Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) by placing in the subject subscribe with in the body:

Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername (doesn't matter if with @ or without)



When somebody will type @yourUsername or yourUsername you will get a notification.

You can either get notified through PM or Telegram, never both

Read the commands section to know what else you can do.



What trigger a notification (the " are just there tho show the empty spaces around it):
Quote
" @user "
Quote
" @user* "
where * is any character, this should fix all the missing notifications where "," "." "?" or anything else is used right after the username.

If @user is in the begin or end of the message will just require an empty space onn the opposite side, all these combinations below works (and also the variant with a random character in the end *):

Quote
"@user hello how are you?"
Quote
"hello you are @user"  
Quote
"hello @user
how are you?"

Working example:

@asche! @actmyname? @Loyce( test ) @babo.

This won't work:

@Halab?, @TomCrypto... @Piggy(test)

Now should work the notification also for all those cases where the names are between tags like these, there can even be some space before or after the username:

Code:
[url=https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=459836] username [/url]

[b] username[/b]
[i]username [/i]
...

 Loyce  (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=459836)

TryNinja

BitCryptex



Long version:
I have been working and experimenting with a bot i coded which will ultimately could help to extend the functionality of the forum and provide public services, to start, one of the primary aim is to notify users about somebody mentioning them, using the known @username notation.
This part is almost completed and usable, even though is not well tested yet. I had few users in the Italian section using it and i was able to collect some feedback and fix some of the emerging issues.

Now i would need more people to use it and see if everything holds and what needs to be changed/fixed in order for it to work better.

How the notification works:
Once you are properly set up with the bot and somebody include in his message @YourUsername or YourUsername[/li][/list] you will be notified by the user Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148), receiving one or more links/short quote to the post where you were mentioned.

These notification are going to be customizable and an option to turn them on/off will be introduced.

If you are not registered, anybody interacting with you will have no effect.

How to interact with the bot and what you can do:

Commands:
  • To register: send a PM to the user Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) with the subject: subscribe and anything in the body. You will receive a PM confirming you are signed up and some basic information.
  • To unsubscribe from receiving notification: send a PM to the user Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) with the subject unsubscribe and something random in the body to be allowed to send it

NEW:
Through a PM while placing in the subject subscribe if you subscribing, or  options if you are already subscribed you can now specify other settings in the body of the message, like this:

Code:
alias:your_alias
tagusername:on
quote:off
plainusername:on
automention:off

in order are:
Alias is another name you can use to get notified when somebody mention it, both with @ or without (based on the settings below)
Tagusername, activates/deactivates notification while being mentioned using @ like @username
Quote, activates/deactivates notification while being quoted
Plainusername,  activates/deactivates notification while your username is being mentioned (without using the @)
Automention,  activates/deactivates notification while your username or alias is being mentioned by you

If none of these options are specified the alias is disabled and the notifications are all on by default.

You can have an alias set and you will get a notification based on your preferences, if there is no other user already registered having that username. Otherwise you won't be notified.

NEW
Telegram notification added

Important:
Before or after you have registered you need to contact @Maggiordomo_Service_bot (https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=@Maggiordomo_Service_bot) on telegram (with the same telegram username used for registering) and just write something to him so he can bind your telegram and forum account togheter.

For who is already registered just send a pm with options in the subject of the bot and add in the body:

Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername (doesn't matter if with @ or without)

If you are not subscribed yet send a pm with subscribe in the subject to the bot and add in the body:
Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername (doesn't matter if with @ or without)

Notes:
If you quote a message with @SomeUsername this won’t trigger a notification to that user.
You can send multiple notification with the same message: @user1 @user2 @user3 ...

Keep in mind the bot use a jr member account, which has a cooldown limitation between one post and the other, about ~8 seconds, so don’t expect to receive your notification instantly, but if you have more than one notification pending they will be delivered all at once.

Uses:
  • to save a thread or comment you want to get back to
  • signal a post which should me merited (not your own possibly)
  • bring somebody attention to a thread for whatever reason

Disclaimer:
It could happen that while the bot is off you will miss some of your notifications, you will have to wait some time to receive them or for some malfunction you won't receive them at all.

I will try to leave a notice in top of this thread if the bot goes down.

You can report any problem, issue or feedback in here.

Post by: vphasitha01 on September 07, 2018, 10:13:21 AM
You can try the new notification system, in order to use it send a pm to Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) by placing in the subject subscribe and in the body a link to a thread you created (preferably in a place out of the way, Off topic perhaps), this will be used to receive your notifications. You will receive a message confirming you are signed up and some basic information.
When somebody will type @yourUsername or @your=Username (if you have spaces in your username, they need to be replaced with = ) you will get one or more notifications in your thread.
A great innovative idea as usual by @Piggy. But don't you think people will clog the Off-topic board (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=9.0) by creating many threads as you suggested for receiving notifications and what would happen if people are not limiting those threads to the Off-topic boards? Someone can say Off-topic board is already filled with shit, but that's not an excuse for us to create more threads filled only with notifications. I have checked few of the tested posts (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4870260.msg44136764#msg44136764) and it redirects to the bounty reports which is useless. If we can get a notification for our social media account (how about for Telegram account which can be created for this notification only) would be great rather creating separate threads even in Off-topic board.

Can we use this bot to check the plagiarism post?

Restrictions and customizations (to be implemented):
  • A minimum amount of merits received is going to be necessary to use it, perhaps 5/10

These simple rules hopefully will be enough to discourage people from using in ways were not intended.
It is great to see that you put restrictions. However, I don't think 5/10 Merits would be enough and those Merits should be "Earned Merits"

That is the test thread which is not corresponding to the actual state of the notification system, those messages are almost a month old and for testing, beside you need to be registered with the bot to receive any notification, as mentioned in my message above, any other @mention found will be discarded.

Again, using the thread is not ideal and would generate some more traffic but at least would be for some purpose and giving a useful service, this is what i can work with since the limitation put in place to send PM, i have another couple of ideas to limit the impact but the choices are limited.

Can we use this bot to check the plagiarism post?

Eventually it could, but at this stage is just about notification

@LoyceV reporting in for testing.

Some thoughts:
Have you considered a delay between posts to prevent posts being rejected if the popularity increases?

Can you add the post title and username? Say: "you have been mentioned by LoyceV in [Beta] @mention notification bot open for testing (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023605.0).
I see this is fixed already. Or is it? I wanted to quote it, but it's deleted again.

How do you scrape all new posts: do you check all boards, or is there a smarter way?
How long does it take to pick up a new post, assuming the bot is running? It's been 12 minutes since I tested @LoyceV, so far without notification (unless it ignores my own posts).

is not perfect yet, i saw it says your notification was delivered but somehow didn't happen. I do have a queue to wait for the cooldown and variuos check to see if the page throw some error, so it should have worked.

I read all the latest messages from here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=recent, then pick the @mention and check against the user subscribed

Would be very much useful if we could get notified by PM including a link to the post where we were mentioned/quoted, without having to open another thread to see the notifications.
Isn't it possible to use a higher ranked account and ask a mod to whitelist it so that it doesn't need to wait to send PMs? Mods can do that, don't they?

Thank you very much! I didn't know it's possible to remove ";patrol" to get posts from all users. I'll use it for scraping spam posts.

I think when is working properly I can try to ask if the restrictions can be lifted, with pm everything would be much simpler.

I turned now down the not, I'll look into the problems seen, fix and maybe set it up again this weekend. You can check the status on the top of the first post.

Can that be optional? I don't want to be spammed by PM, a thread in "Show new replies" is much less intrusive.

Slightly off-topic: what do you use to post? I used to have a script that could post, but Cloudflare broke it. I tried to find something newer, but never got anything that I can get to work.
I'd love to have a post/PM bot again! Many spammers have it, I don't :(

Oh, yes I think a lot of people will find the bot useful, for useful purposes. Is it possible to use a script to make posts with an existing account?

How about if we combine those two bots with few modifications,

  • BitcoinTalk Announcements BOT (https://t.me/bitcointalkanns) created by busminer (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=121232) - Bot parsed the forum for announcement, and instantly sent notifications for Telegram
  • [Beta] @mention notification bot (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) created by Piggy (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=188198) - When somebody will type @yourUsername or @your=Username you will get one or more notifications in your thread

We can get instant notifications for our Telegram when somebody will type @yourUsername. Isn't that great :)

I can add some settings for the way you want to receive your notification, however pm is most probably not going to happen as it's unlikely the account will get a free pass and the limits at the moment are quite strict.
The other option, beside what i'm using now, is just to make a post in your notification thread and then edit that post adding notifications as they come, this doesn't involve any cool down, so could be a viable compromise for instantaneous notifications.

I rather avoid in this case to publicly advertise how is done. Sure thing is, since the bot is reading all the messages being posted, it will be able to run checks on them for any kind of purpose and spot early on unpleasant situations.  :)

i was making some changing which should fix the problems occurred. Plus a more robust way of discovering any further problem which may happen. Now the bot is up again if you miss the chance to try it out the first time.  :)

Yes, just checks what you write in your message, the rest is stripped away to avoid involuntary notifications.

Request: Can you add a full-spy-option? I'd like to get a notification whenever someone types "LoyceV" (with or without "@) or quotes me.
The quote notification should only happen if someone who quotes me directly, not if someone quotes a quote in which I was quoted already.

i think it's doable or at least worth a try, it may be more natural to name somebody even without the @. I'll implement something and run it in the next days.

Yes that would be the next phase, some way to use it as monitoring system / reporting

This is an interesting feature @Piggy :) It's cool to see the notifications somewhere to be able to follow more conversations here.

Any chance this could be extended to also check for posts where you were quoted? I've create a new feature proposal in the past for this here: [NEW FEATURE] Seeing a post that quoted your post (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2878955.0) would be nice to see it in your tool.

I'm curios what kind of software did you use to create this bot and how are you running it?

This feature is not actually very difficult to implement, as soon as i have time i'm going to add it as well, so the next run we can see how is going.

The bot is coded in C#.

That sounds great! :)

I was wondering how exactly are you running the bot. Is at like an "agent" that you start and it starts crawling the forum user's latest posts for references of the list of watched user names?

Also, I assume you're doing everything headless, right?

Yes and yes.

I'm actually testing now in silent mode (users registered are not getting any nothifications but they do show up in the log) the idea you are proposing, i need to improve a bit the code to make sure everything run as fast as possible, but it seems to be working quite fine.

This can be a very impressive tool if it works, also I suggest also as someone already said to add the notification even if anyone quote your post, it would be an awesome feature, since a lot of people will quote your posts but they will not @tag you.

That and the notification for the  plain mention of the username without @ should be ready for some public testing today. By what i have seen yesterday it seems to work fine, it may need to be tweaked if there will ever be a lot of users. I'll also implement some options to turn on and off these two kind of notification then.

If you don't mind me asking: What's this coded in? Have you thought about releasing it as open source: throwing it up on Github so others can contribute?

If it's a language I'm familiar w/, I'd definitely try & help out.

If you're wanting to keep it closed source, that's completely understandable though.

I may do it a certain point, the main reason not to is to avoid showing wrong people how to post messages automatically, there is already a lot of spam i would not want to cause more.

I'm using C# and Visual Studio

The 2 new ways to trigger notifications are now ready to be tested and you may start to get some

Quote
How the notification works:
Once you are properly set up with the bot and somebody include in his message:
  • @YourUsername or @Your=Username in case you have spaces in your username (the = can be changed later on if there is any better character not allowed in the username to fill the gap)
  • new: Quote directly one of your messages
  • new: Mention you by your plain username (without @)

That worked, although I received the notification twice. The quoted dates were different, so I'm not sure if you posted and deleted this first, or your bot doubles it.

Another request: can I have a custom keyword? I'm often referred to as "Loyce".

yes i noticed a duplication of the messages sent as well, sometimes if i see strange things happening i just step in and delete the messages manually. Now there should be no more double notification messages.

For the alias i need to think about it, it may overlap with the main username of another user and become messy. Perhaps it could be used as long as there is not another user Loyce subscribed. I'll put in the list of things to do and see what i can do.

To prevent any imposter from claiming "Loyce", I've just registered it myself. And I instantly deleted the password, although it's linked to my Gmail (to prevent anyone else from claiming it if I don't own the email address). I'll never use it, and neither will anybody else.
With this out of the way, could you just change my "LoyceV" to "Loyce"? That should solve the overlap-problem.

Update: I received notification (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023723.msg45570481#msg45570481) of my own post now.

yes that is intended, you can trigger a notification to yourself, perhaps if you want to save a link to a comment or for whatever reason.
Double notifications may still showing up i see. But I will leave it running for while now and check if any more problems come up.

Oh, sorry, I was under the impression that it was only mentions within a specific thread that you set. Was wondering if it's possible for it to watch the entire forum looking for @ mentions.

"To register: send a PM to the user Maggiordomo with the subject: subscribe and a link to your thread in the body. You will receive a message in that thread confirming you are signed up and some basic information."

Would I just not include a thread link in the body of the message in order to get all notifications of all threads?

You got it wrong. The thread you should send to the bot is a thread where he will post every time you get mentioned.

- I create a thread called "Mentions to TryNinja" and link it to the bot.
- Every time someone says @TryNinja, the bot quotes the post in the "Mentions to TryNinja" thread.

The bot already checks the whole forum by reading every new post created (which are shown in the "recent posts" page).

For example, here is Loyce's thread: Are you looking for me? (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023723)

Ahh ok, this makes a lot more sense. I had the impression it would send a PM to you when you're mentioned within a specific thread. Targeted towards Service announcements, thread management, etc.

Sorry about that!

The thread you put in the PM during the registration is the one where you receive solely the notifications, i may have not wrote it very clearly, i'll make it more explicit peraphs.

Post by: Piggy on September 17, 2018, 07:28:21 AM
We are up again for another round of testing. I made changes and fixes based on the past feedback.

I need still to code some way to allow some changes on what should trigger the notifications and the link of the thread where you get notified. So that if somebody want just to receive them when is explicitly mentioned in a certain way can do so. This will happen through PM, with something like this in the body:

Code:
link
tagusername:on/off
quote:on/off
plainusername:on/off

I'm looking into adding one alias as well which will work just if is not overlapping with the main username of a registered user already and maybe if it's not too different from the original username.

For the moment i will leave the bot up to check if anything else is coming up to be fixed.
Next step if everything goes well is to look into a more permanent way to let it run, probably a raspberry pi will do.

Yes, at this moment everything is enabled by default and you receive notifications for all these three cases. As soon as i implement these options you can set it as you like.

Post by: Piggy on September 18, 2018, 09:32:47 AM
Update

through a PM while placing in the subject subscribe if you subscribing, or  options if you are already subscribed you can now specify other settings in the body of the message, like this:

Code:
alias:your_alias
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=00000000
tagusername:on
quote:off
plainusername:on

in order are:
Alias is another name you can use to get notified when somebody mention it, both with @ or without (based on the settings below)
The notification thread if you want to change it
Tagusername, activates/deactivates notification while being mentioned using @ like @username
Quote, activates/deactivates notification while being quoted
Plainusername,  activates/deactivates notification while your username is being mentioned (without using the @)

If none of these options are specified the alias i disabled and the notifications are all on by default.

You can have an alias set and you will get a notification based on your preferences, if there is no other user already registered having that username. Otherwise you won't be notified.

We are getting close to a possible release, these two changes need now to be tested to be sure that everything works 100%, between today and tomorrow probably is going to be enough to spot problems.

Telegram would be a lot easier as it wouldn't require the creation of a thread (leads to needless post creation technically)

Any recos as to where to post these notification threads? I saw off-topic as a common choice

Yes for the moment off topic seems to be the right place, or at least i didn't receive any complain from the moderators for the moment.

But in general is probably better to have also some other options open using Telegram.

After taking a look at this to set it up, it appears that the notifications are sent to a thread and not a PM?  Why is this?  I would think we'd want our notifications to be private in the form of a PM and not a public thread post.  Maybe providing our user ID for PMs instead of a thread link would be a better solution?

The main problem with pm is that they are restricted to avoid abuses https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2536728.0 so i would not be able to send that many, beside that, you could get quite a lot of messages if you want the notifications to be instantaneous and i imagine it could be quite intrusive.
With a thread you get a mail notification once, till you visit again the thread, plus you can also lock the thread if you start to receive too much notifications, so you have more control vs PM.

There is going to be a choice to get notifications directly in Telegram as well which it may be preferable for some people.

Hello @Piggy, thank you for your work and good luck with it.

I wanted to ask, is it possible to implement an option that a bot will be able to track other information which belongs to your account? For example, if abusers/scammers use your forum profile/social account (links) to apply to different campaigns, about which you even never heard.  The same question about public tables published on the forum. Thank you.

One problem is that all the information are inside google spreadsheet, so is necessary to look specifically for those and then keep checking them periodically,  is a bit different from what i'm doing in here and would not fit. This would require something dedicated, perhaps for a future project. Ultimately should be a responsibility of the bounty managers to do proper checks.



Telegram notification added(need some testing to make sure everything works)

For who is already registered just send a pm with options in the subject of the bot and add in the body:

Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername


Before or after you have done this you need to contact @Maggiordomo_Service_bot (https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=@Maggiordomo_Service_bot) on telegram with the same telegram username used for registering and just write something to him so he can bind your telegram and forum account togheter.

If you are not subscribed yet send a pm with subscribe in the subject to the bot and add in the body:
Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername
or
Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername
linkToYourThread
if you want to receive the notifications on both.

I still need to add an option to enable/disable notification on forum and telegram as preferred.

- fixed few issues with the registration using telegram, now babo and Initscri should be able to get their notifications in telegram  :)

I'll be keeping it on today as well to check if anything else comes up. If you haven't tried it yet feel free to register, instructions are in the first post.

Hello @Piggy, thank you for your work and good luck with it.

I wanted to ask, is it possible to implement an option that a bot will be able to track other information which belongs to your account? For example, if abusers/scammers use your forum profile/social account (links) to apply to different campaigns, about which you even never heard.  The same question about public tables published on the forum. Thank you.

One problem is that all the information are inside google spreadsheet, so is necessary to look specifically for those and then keep checking them periodically,  is a bit different from what i'm doing in here and would not fit. This would require something dedicated, perhaps for a future project. Ultimately should be a responsibility of the bounty managers to do proper checks.


Regarding the google sheets, it was worth it to ask, as it irritates that scammers apply with your details, thanks for answering :D

@PolyPanto please try to send a pm with options in the subject instead of subscribe, you are already subscribed so it was ignoring your previous request. This way i can also see if everything works. Thanks


Thanks, sent again. Now I understand, why the bot didn't react, my mistake  ::)

Found maybe a bug in the bot.

I was quoted in a thread but the notification shows that the quote is in another thread.


This is the correct thread where I was quoted >


For Legendary we know already > Amph (https://bpip.org/profile.aspx?p=Amph) = 28889 posts but guess what, he got only 1 merit :D

Interesting that for 28889 posts he only earned 1 merit. I was going through his posts and he is definitely no shit-poster. His posts are generally reasonably good but just really short so don't attract merit.

This is the notification from the bot leading to the missing quote :
iasenko, you have been quoted in the following messages:

 

I was thinking that, maybe xtraelv quoted me on a wrong thread and then deleted his comment but it this case I should have received a notification for both quotes. but...
Here is the topic and message IDs :

yes looks like a bug, thank you for reporting. I think i have already an idea where it could go wrong and cause something like this to happen, i'll run some test and prepare a fix for it in the next days.

Some update:

- fixed other non catastrophic issues.

If anybody else want to give it a go, just follow the instruction on the first post or ask.

hi,

i was looking at the log, at that time yesterday the bot was not active.
I was letting it run some untested code, which had some problem and stopped the bot entirely  :), that was around ~01:30:00 PM. Then i could not start it again remotely.

If you see anything else strange please let me know.

Welcome, if you encounter some problem please let me know.

I'm going to leave it running the whole today and tomorrow (unless some big problem or crash occurs), then check back on Monday if anything need fixes.
So this is the perfect time to try it.

LoyceV, you have been quoted in the following messages:
 



I really like the quotes from local boards! "Normally", I would stumble upon most quotes eventually anyway, but in local boards, I'd never find them. I had no idea people refer to my posts from local threads, and some even translate my posts! Thanks for this feature :)

Mentions in local boards are indeed quite funny  :)

I now stopped the bot and is going to be down for a few days as i fix some of the issues. It seems nothing major came up and it's quite stable, at least for what i have seen in this test of 2 and half days straight.

In the meanwhile i started to make some test with Mono on a Raspberry pi and looks quite quite promising, hopefully everything will run in there in the end :)

TBH, if you need a VPS for this, I'd put it out there.
I'd probably personally chip in a little bit for a super small VPS from like DigitalOcean or Vultr.

I wouldn't be surprised if others joined in as well. It's super helpful, and worth the operating costs.

It could be a valid alternative to keep into account indeed, i actually didn't know there were cheaper options (i had tried with some free credit with Microsoft azure but it's way too expensive, Google and Amazon have something as well but i never looked how much is costing).
In the end since the work done in here is computationally very simple, it doesn't require any powerful machine to run it, so having same ultra basic configuration for the hardware would be enough :)

The cheapest I found is SparkVPS (https://www.sparkvps.com/crm/cart.php?a=add&pid=169). I haven't used them yet (so this is not a vouch for them!), because I don't have time to figure it all out yet, but the specs look like a very good deal:
Code:
2 CPU Cores
1.5 GB RAM
1.5 GB vSwap
20GB SSD Storage
2500 GB (2.5 TB) Monthly Bandwidth
SolusVM Control Panel
Root Access Included
1Gbps Network Speed
Deploy in New York or Dallas
It's $14 per year and they accept Bitcoin.

I made few more fixes, including the self quote triggering a notification, but mainly to allow it to run with mono.
We still need another round of testing since is now running on a virtual machine in Linux, so i will keep it up as long as possible today and possibly during the whole week end as well.

If everything goes fine we are very close to a stable release which could run 24/7.

Ii see they have a free trial, i'm probably going to check it out since you have been using it for a while already, the prices are looking reasonable.
I don't have much experience with vps and I don't want to spend too much time to look around for the absolute cheap to find out later is not usable

I would recommend users to create threads in Archival since the board is mainly used as a dumping ground for obsolete threads anyway.

This avoids the possibility of cluttering up Off-topic (which can potentially house non-spam threads) or any other non-primary board.

Great idea! I moved my thread, and it works fine.
@Piggy: I would suggest to only accept threads in Archival from now on.

If we keep our threads clean it won't be problem, the best solution is to receive a PM for every quote, but Piggy should request the bot to be whitelisted to remove the PM restriction. So there will be more privacy, now everyone can put my thread in the watchlist and see when somebody quotes me, not that I really care about it but...

Functionality is still there if someone wants to check up on your mentions (for whatever reason) if they simply search your name in the built-in search function. This is what I've been doing to check my mentions (until I found this thread).

Yeah but this takes more time and effort and it's not so effective as receiving notifications every time you been quoted. As I said before I don't really care about this issue but some can take it more serious.

I'm fairly sure the white listing is not going to happen if i ask for it now, maybe later on if there will be more people signing up. Probably is better to wait when the bot is going to run 24/7.

For the moment to keep the notification less explicit (but not private) the only option is to use telegram.

I made some small fixes and changes. For anybody who want to register now and want to use a thread to receive the notifications, it's going to enforce the thread is under Archival. All those who were registered before can still use the original thread they created but, would be better to move it under Archival.

I'll be leaving the bot up, possibly through the night as well, however you can just check the first post to make sure of the status.

Forgot some extra code/tags in the end.  :)
Otherwise that is the message which will appear in case there are a certain number of consecutive errors, while trying to send/post a notifications.
In this case the server was returning (while trying to post ) 503 (Service Temporarily Unavailable) which may be due to the internet connection of the VPS i guess.

Hi,  I really like the telegram feature and I would prefer to get telegram notifications only. Can I unsubscribe from the thread notifications and delete it and get them only via telegram or it is a must to have a thread?  If it is possible, should I send PM to Maggiordomo with the subject unsubscribe and the link to the tread in the text or I need to do anything else?

About the testing, it seems like your bot missed this post:

Any clue @piggy?

Unless the message was edited and the mention added later, should havse picked it up indeed, it seems a pretty straight case.
There may have been even some timeout internally and the message slipped away by the time everything went back to normal, there may be some clue in the log file.
I'll look into it @asche

Ok it doesn't work for @asche while it's working for others.
BTW is there a feature to notif all subscribers to il maggiordomo? like @all or something else?
I guess we receive notifications from users even if they are in our bitcointalk ignore list... so is there a feature for blocking notification of someone in particular?

PS: BTW I read @asche has changed some options like enabling telegram notification

@asche is receiving his notifications just on telegram so you cannot see them, but he should be receiving them.

At the moment there no options to notify all the people at once ( you need to name each of them) or to filter out mentions from certain people.

You can find the instructions to set up telegram in the first post of this thread if needed.

I deactivated that option and forgot to mention it, now simply try first to send the notification through telegram, if succeed, it doesn't send the notification in the thread to avoid redundancy.

This is something i can look into it. Anyway at the moment you can use just one alias and will work unless it collides with the username of another user registered with the bot.

To be sure to receive a notification the mention need to be between two empty spaces because in here you are allowed to have many strange characters in the usernames, it may be the comma is allowed as well, so to make things easier i decided to go that way (and also for performance reason without entering into roo much detail s).

In any case i may look into this as well since many people put a comma right after the name.

How about a check for if removing the first/last character of the string will result in the alias?

At the moment i'm looking for a pattern " @username/alias " or " username/alias " with space in the begin and in the end, i can change it easily to space or ", " (comma + space) in the end.

I have just to make sure there are no cases where can cause some misbehaviour, because the comma can be part of they username as well or pheraps not anymore? I see there are usernames that have it.

On the other end i cannot think of a case where there would be two users registered where one has the username "user" and the other has "user," other than for trolling somebody :)

Yes i can add something like that in the second post of this thread where all the users are listed. At the moment i'm not counting anything in particular unfortunately.

Yes, at the moment the username need to be included between spaces to trigger the notification, this was done to work in a general way as "?" "." and "," can be included in the username so Piggy and Piggy? could actually be two different users, but as i was saying before the chances of this happening are quite small.

I will add some special cases for the end characters like "?" "." and "," so cases where somebody writes (also without @): @user? or @user. " or @user, would still notify user


Title: Re: [RELEASED] @mention notification bot - now with Telegram
Post by: Piggy on October 30, 2018, 06:13:56 AM
I made some of the changes discussed above, this below is some example of what trigger the notifications at and what doesn't:

What trigger a notification (the " are just there tho show the empty spaces around it):
Quote
" @user "
Quote
" @user* "
where * is any character, this should fix all the missing notifications where "," "." "?" or anything else is used right after the username.

If @user is in the begin or end of the message will just require an empty space onn the opposite side, all these combinations below works (and also the variant with a random character in the end *):

Quote
"@user hello how are you?"
Quote
"hello you are @user" 
Quote
"hello @user
how are you?"

Working example:

@asche! @actmyname? @Loyce( test ) @babo.

This won't work:

@Halab?, @TomCrypto... @Piggy(test)

yes that is intended, you can trigger a notification to yourself, perhaps if you want to save a link to a comment or for whatever reason.
Can you make this a configurable option? I've never wanted to use this feature, but I unintentionally triggered it several times.
This is my latest self-notification (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5023723.msg47540542#msg47540542), and this is going to happen at all my weekly updates.
If I can turn it off, that would be much appreciated.

I need to have a look at the code on Monday, but as far as i can remember should be quite straight forward to make this change. In the end from your side is just going to be another on/off option to manage it.

Hi

I see the alias you have set at the moment is saint so is consistent with the notifications you are getting.

Were you actually setting saint loup to begin with right? I may have to look into it and fix it, as is cutting off when it encounters spaces, if i remember correctly ( need to look into the code to be sure )

Yes i suppose you had saint for alias, now you can actually set aliases with a space in between as well after the last change i made, so you can get notified just for "saint loup" mentions as well.

At the moment you can just use one or the other, if both methods are set, it uses automatically telegram. Is to avoid redundancy and keep the system simple.

Telegram is more convenient imo.

@Piggy is it possible to configure the bot to recognise words in the same order? For example User A posts something and in case User B copies his post (plagiarises it) User A gets a notification or a notification is sent to thread for everyone to see. Imagine how much this would help with copy/pasting issues.
In case the same order of 5 or 10 words is used the bot sends out a notification.
Sorry if this was already discussed I didn't go through all posts.

since the bot is already reading all the messages this sort of the idea was brought up in fact, i still have to think how is better to implement it, but as soon as i have some clear idea and time to code it i'll implement something that will detect some of the plagiarism happening within the forum.

I'm not entirely sure however if this should be some functionality of this bot or a new one, which will specifically deal with these matters.

This would require to copy over the whole forum database and compare every single new post to the old ones. Safe to say it would be extremely difficult to implement

not a lot of changes in the end, but since this bot is serving a complete different purpose and since it's stable now, i would like to avoid put on top of it more code which could potentially fail and bring down everything altogether  ;)

Maybe the focus could be on the 1-2 sections of the forum where most of the plagiarism issues take place such as the Altcoin section. I am not sure which other board has a lot of copy-pasted material but I assume it is mainly related to bounties. If that goes well it could be widened to other boards for example.

Here is the post we are talking about. Let's test it if he will get notification.
I quoted the whole post first, then edited it again but I deleted 1 closing quote too much and it appeared as I posted it. Then came another edit to fix it.
This is the final result, it should not trigger notifications.

Read this:
~

There you go, another half hour gone. Thanks for the input, It was almost 400 pages back.. I don't think I could ever find it myself.


~
You don't want to fuck with the WO people, they'll dump so much of those TA's on your head, you might start to think the Earth is actually flat. And you'll prefer wearing those hats instead of taking crack on the weekends whilst sobbing about bitcoin's price. :/

And also, you'll eventually end up joining in with LoyceV  (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5065375.msg47695280#msg47695280), by falling into the trap(aka the hypnotism caused by Micgoosens (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5065375.msg47747453#msg47747453)).

No way for me to go for a hat like these. NO.
If I make an exception, then it will be for something like this..

Edited:Actually you are there in the second part of the post, see the second quote below the <hr>
I saw that :) My point is: you're not quoting me directly, you're quoting someone who mentioned me.

I'm going to fake @iasenko's quote here and fake mention @Piggy here too.
(obviously: quote edited by me :D)
If I understand correctly, P i g g y should not receive a notification, but if the bug is real, he'll get one anyway. I won't edit this post. I edited it anyway, but didn't change any usernames.

I quoted the whole post first, then edited it again but I deleted 1 closing quote too much and it appeared as I posted it. Then came another edit to fix it.
This is the final result, it should not trigger notifications.

It's not my first time messing up the quote tags..

Ok so in this case then the notification would have been triggered indeed like it happened.

I may need to check why spotted a quote as well beside the mention, but with broken tags i figure there could be these kind of inaccuracies since i didn't test these cases.

I never said you couldn't do it Piggy :)
But it looks like it involves a lot of modification to what the bot does now.


not a lot of changes in the end, but since this bot is serving a complete different purpose and since it's stable now, i would like to avoid put on top of it more code which could potentially fail and bring down everything altogether  ;)

It i'll probably be something separated based on this one, if i see is possible to get some useful result.
Just make sure that you won't share your code... I've read in another topic that spammers/copypasters are now fishing for anti-spam anti-plagiarism methods, to upgrade their systems in order to have less accounts banned in the future...

Absolutely, it's his decision.
I'm just wondering if it worths the efforts to develop a system to catch the bad boys, where the bad boys can easily check how they are identified to be a bad boy or not and they can modify their system accordingly to escape the checks...
If open source, there will be no catch after the bad boys have adapted themselves, so the new system would be just unnecessary...
But bad boys would stand up for the open source system of course :)

The two posts were I was mentioned:

As far as i can see from the log there have been no problem last night around that time.

There may be the chance the message was actually edited and the mention added afterwards, in that case you would not see the notification. (as asche hinted)

Just signed up Piggy and received this reply:

Important: since your username contains space/s in it to receive notification you need to be called by: @oeleo

Obviously it is misinterpreting underscores as spaces. Is this something that can be fixed?

That's not the case, bitart was mentioned in the unedited post. In case you want to troubleshoot it, I scraped this at most a few seconds after posting:

@bitart We don&#039;t need a sub board dedicated to merit discussion. But I think it would be wise to add a account problems. But it should be limited to ban appeals, locked accounts and banned accounts. Otherwise it will be flooded with &quot;why cant I post images&quot; threads. I think if we can consolidate the above 3 things then it might improve the communication between the community and the admins.<br /><br />Maybe only allow users to post threads and reply to their own threads. But they cant reply to other peoples threads. Like a personal support ticket. Better yet keep all threads posted in there private and only viewable by staff members and the original poster.

After theymos fixed the homographs those characters written in other coding are converted automatically into Latin characters.
I remember now, while we were fighting the homographs with Loyce back then he found out that in the recent posts the homographs were not changed. I think this is where Piggy is gathering his database from, so the above mentions will not work.

It will be interesting to test your suggestion, tho.

It doesn't work. Old usernames can still have weird characters (example: #1M@ (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1035745)), but it's no longer allowed for new registrations.
I tried the homograph too:
I tried registering "LoyceV" on this forum, but I get "Invalid character used in Username.". I'm glad this is covered.

@o_e_l_e_o you should be able to receive notification with your full username, there is some problem indeed but you can just disregard that message which is actually referring to the alias, which you can change.

If @bitart message was not picked up could be either because there is something particular in the message ( i need to check and see if it gets processed correctly) or simply the bot need to read more messages than i anticipated to avoid missing some.

I'll have a look on monday.  :)

Thanks Piggy, that seems to be working now.

Edit: Confirmed alias is working as well. Thanks again.

Piggy, I want to congralute you for making such a good service.

This could be officially incentived by bitcointalk forum.

Maybe creating a proper board for bots?  I put my notifications in the archive board, but I believe this is not an appropriate session for it.

Edit:
I didn't receive double notifications, until you fixed it :o

I had the same problem. Only after fixed , I received a triple notification

I'm just speculating here: could it be caused by the way you handle posts from "recent (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=recent)"? I've been scraping that too, and on frequent downloads with slow posts it often gives the same post again. If you keep track of the latest postID, you should be able to easily prevent processing the same post twice.

If you keep track of the latest postID, you should be able to easily prevent processing the same post twice.

there was that problem as well but it was fixed with the first changes.

The problem seemed to be related with the order the latest post pages(1,2,3 ...) were downloaded. Since i was downloading them asynchronously, starting them all together, sometimes page 2 or 3 would finish before page 1, screwing up "the most recent message already read".
So at the next iteration if page 1 would finish before page 2 or 3 there would be still 10/20 messages which would get processed again, duplicating notifications.

Now it's updated.

All notifications should be sent to private messages. Otherwise, your bot raises outdated topics, litters the forum and increases the load on the servers.

This was discussed i while back, there are daily limits on the amount of private messages you can send, in particular for new accounts, so it wouldn't be viable. There is telegram in any case.

So far using threads within the Archival boards has proved to be fine with the forum moderation, since is not disturbing anyone and there have been no users trying to exploit the bot with bad intents. In this case however it just seems Kriptopsina found inadvertently a bug and had set a thread which actually was not under Archival.

Yes there is no feedback from the bot when you change the options, i may have a look and see if there is some easy way to show them in the notification thread. In telegram it's quite easy and i will get it done after the holidays.

Yes make sense as well, is much easier to have that kind of configurations directly on the telegram. I'll look into it  :)

I see. That thread is supposed to be in the Archive board so that it wouldn't disturb anybody, it should be moved in there, i'll drop the op a pm so he can do it.

Edit: I sent pm to Kriptopsina and turned off momentarily the notifications for him

Again your bot spamming on the forum. For which purposes you send notifications about replies in thread B to thread A?

I had my notification thread moved from off-topic to archival last night by a mod. That is a more suitable place, and it was a pending task of mine to move for quite some time. This morning I PMd @Maggiordomo with an "options" subject and the parameters in the text body. I figure I did it correctly, but kindly give it a look whenever you can to check that the thread change is now in effect. Thanks.
 
Edit: @Maggiordomo just PMd me with a recent notification, so that's proof that I configurated it correctly.

Yes indeed your notification thread is set correctly.

I just made the change now, i'm checking that everything still works correctly and the filtering (of notifications in thread which are not in the Archival board) happen.



@Kriptopsina should not receive any notification (Thread not in Archival)

You're wrong. There is a difference between a bot using an account and an account using a bot. An account is something like an I/O interface for a bot. In your version it turns out the car drives the driver.

I'm not newbie, please read the thread carefully. First, I sent a report, then wrote here, then the moderator deleted the bot post and posted here a link to the archive. After that, the developer said "is not a bug but a feature", and the bot after a while posted spam on Russian locale again, as a result I sent the report again and wrote here. Position of the moderator is absolutely clear - that logic of the tool violates the forum rules. I just warn the developer that the logic of the tool can lead to a ban of the bot.

Do you think moderators don't use their brains and incorrectly interpret the rules?

Code:

there is some problem with the bot, running it from the vps is returning https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_403 getting the latest posts, while from my machine works.

No sure what is the problem unless the ip was banned or blacklisted for some reason  ???

EDIT: Can also be that i had the disk full i had several GB of files i use to debug errors, which i'm now cleaning up  :-\

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, sending a PM @ bot with subscribe as a subject and a thread link in the body, does nothing.
I have tried twice yesterday, gave it a little time for processing but the thread is still empty.  ???

Love the idea, I was talking about that kind of a bot more than a year ago, especially with telegram in mind.
Back then, none was able to help and now I'm stumbling upon this topic... marvellous job Piggy :)    

Edit: immediately after this post bot woke up... so it's all OK, I guess.
Only one question remains, do I have to "watch" my bot thread to be able to receive notifications on telegram?

I checked the bot and was not running apparently, but i'm not sure why. Anyway i started it back.

One little think I’ve noticed recently is that the @Maggiordomo seems to skip notifying when the username is followed by an apostrophe (i.e. DdmrDdmr’s so and so). I figure that you are parsing the username and interpreting trimming full stops comas, semicolons and so on, but I’m not sure if the above case is considered in the rules to interpret the alias.

DdmrDdmr’s doesn't trigger a notification, there can be only one extra character after the username ( so any combination of DdmrDdmr# would work)

@Piggy and the Gang
Can I have this little suggestion taken in to consideration or eventual evaluation by those who use telegram bot?

Above I have shopped (poorly) the message that bot is giving me, in a manner I would like to see it.
There is no point for the bot to tell me my bitcointalk nick, I'm usually aware of my own name :) (also no name, makes it harder for multi-account-ers)  I have also edited out the massage or rather part of it. There is no reason for including the fraction of a post, it gives almost no insight and sometimes all we get is an emoticon or just few letters.

This way bot could gain a little extra "productivity". Massage is tight, readable, clear and a bit more anonymous (for eventual bystanders). Other than that, bot is flawless, works like a charm.

Exactly, when the username has some formatting the bot  is not able/set to recognize it. It must be in plain text to work.

Exactly, when the username has some formatting the bot  is not able/set to recognize it. It must be in plain text to work.

Ok, good to know that! Thank you Asche and Piggy!

When someone refers to for instance "LoyceV's data", it doesn't notify me either.

Somehow I'm JUST running into this. I sure as hope this doesn't make Telegram more unusable than what it is already.
I've switched over to discord already.

If you are interested in the notifications but Telegram is a deal breaker, you can still have your own thread where the notifications are sent to.  ;)
You can find the instructions in the first post.

This is an amazing thing that you've created Piggy! I love it!

Might want to add for the tele section though that '@' isn't necessary when sending the bot your username on tele. Just simply writing the username works. The other way with the '@' doesn't work.

For the part when you contact the telegram bot, is just required to start a conversation/chat with him by writing anything. It doesn't need to be the username.
I should test the case you mentioned if it didn't work though.

I meant to write 'when sending the bot your username on bitcointalk' typed a little too fast and missed that.

That would require quite a bit of work as the bot is not designed for that specifically and since the forum is already providing that notification, it would be kind of overdoing. :)

Can you make the bot detect and notify you when someone mentions you inside a tag (bold, italic, size, etc)? I’ve seen many users do some kind of bold+bigger size mention when answering people.

How many resources does the bot use? The number of users has significantly risen since I have checked this topic last time.

Can you make the bot detect and notify you when someone mentions you inside a tag (bold, italic, size, etc)?

He would have to make the bot detect at least 3 extra characters after user's nickname. Some people add 's to nicknames and the bot does not send notification in such case either.

When someone refers to me as Loyce (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=459836), the bot doesn't notify me either. For my nickname, it would be okay to detect it as part of any long string, but for shorter names (such as Vod) that would give false positives.
I'd also like to know when someone refers to loyce.club, but that's usually part of a much longer URL too.

Noted, in any case doesn't make any difference, is able to recognize either way.

.


It's still fine it seems, there are more users but relatively a small amount to handle.


I think this case may be collapsed somehow into looking for something like this :

]%anyspace%username%anyspace%[

%anyspace% is just one or more empty spaces

Then combined with an extra character at the end. I can check and if there is no side effects, i can add this as well.

Have you tried setting an alias? Try sending a private message to the bot with the subject options and include the following text in the body alias:Loyce. I didn't test it so I have no idea if it's going to work.

First of all, I've been using your bot for a few days and I'm thrilled. It's exactly the feature I've been wanting from Bitcointalk for a long time.
Today I noticed that the bot has problems with quotes in some situations. I don't know if this is a known problem. I just want to inform you about it.

I guess DarkKnightNeverDie messed up his quoting when he made his post, and just after he posted it he saw the mistake and corrected it in the given cool down time, so the last edit time stamp doesn't appear. The bot reads only the recent posts and not the late editions.
Could also be a bug, but less likely.

I'm not planning to allow both at the same time. You can just use one or the other, if both are set the notification are just sent through telegram.

I'm not planning to allow both at the same time. You can just use one or the other, if both are set the notification are just sent through telegram.
You can try the new notification system, in order to use it send a pm to Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) by placing in the subject subscribe and in the body a link to a thread you created (preferably in a place out of the way, Off topic perhaps), this will be used to receive your notifications. You will receive a message confirming you are signed up and some basic information.
When somebody will type @yourUsername or @your=Username (if you have spaces in your username, they need to be replaced with = ) you will get one or more notifications in your thread.
A great innovative idea as usual by @Piggy. But don't you think people will clog the Off-topic board (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=9.0) by creating many threads as you suggested for receiving notifications and what would happen if people are not limiting those threads to the Off-topic boards? Someone can say Off-topic board is already filled with shit, but that's not an excuse for us to create more threads filled only with notifications. I have checked few of the tested posts (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4870260.msg44136764#msg44136764) and it redirects to the bounty reports which is useless. If we can get a notification for our social media account (how about for Telegram account which can be created for this notification only) would be great rather creating separate threads even in Off-topic board.

Can we use this bot to check the plagiarism post?

Quote
Restrictions and customizations (to be implemented):
  • A minimum amount of merits received is going to be necessary to use it, perhaps 5/10

These simple rules hopefully will be enough to discourage people from using in ways were not intended.
It is great to see that you put restrictions. However, I don't think 5/10 Merits would be enough and those Merits should be "Earned Merits"

Thanks a lot for this incredible tool your provided for us all. :) It is really helpful !

Has it been already suggested to add a feature that allows to disable notifications when some specific users name/quote me ?
There are several persons I put on ignore on the forum but they still quote me in their posts and I am getting notified of that.

I couldn't care less of their posts but still it attracts my attention.
Hence why I ask if this has been suggested already in the past. :)

Maybe this can be done by interacting with Maggiordomo on Telegram ?

Hi,

There is going to be a change for what concern the notifications within the forum, we are moving from Thread to PM, since the PM limitations for Maggiordomo have been lifted.

Using a thread for the notifications was also interfering/messing up the "show unread posts since last visit" as theymos told me.

You don't have to do anything for this switch and you either receive your notifications through PM or Telegram (  as before )

Is probably going to happen sometime tomorrow.  :)

That's just because the ICO spam slowed down :P I used to see mainly ANN-threads, now it is indeed mainly your bot.

I'm not sure if I'm going to like this change though, one of the problems with PM is that it doesn't show the latest unread, it opens the last page when I click it. If I receive 20 PMs per day from a bot, I can easily overlook real PMs.
I'll see how it goes first :)

I liked the thread system. You bookmark your thread and check from time to time to see if there are any mentions of your name. Thanks Piggy for letting us know.

Short version:
You can try the new notification system, in order to use it send a pm to Maggiordomo (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2340148) by placing in the subject subscribe and in the body a link to a thread you created (the thread must be on the Archival board anywhere else won't work), this will be used to notify about you being mentioned or quoted across all the forum. You will receive a message confirming you are signed up and some basic information.
I would love to subscribe for the notifications, but I am a little confused now that there is going to be a new update.
Since, you are moving away from the thread system to PMs. Do new applicants still have to create a thread in the archival board before applying?

I'm not sure if I'm going to like this change though, one of the problems with PM is that it doesn't show the latest unread, it opens the last page when I click it. If I receive 20 PMs per day from a bot, I can easily overlook real PMs.
I'll see how it goes first :)

It can be is a little more unconvinient if you receive a lot of notification indeed, but this way it's a bit cleaner on the forum side. Let's see how is going after the change.

Hey Piggy,

Just wanted to let you know I received a double notification in 2 occasions over the last few days. Don't know if you want/need more information or if this a known issue.

I think i found out the problem, i saw happening few times to me as well. I'll implement a fix for it tomorrow as well

I would love to subscribe for the notifications, but I am a little confused now that there is going to be a new update.

Till the change happen yes, you need to provide a thread, but since i'm doing the change tomorrow i just suggest to wait.

There is going to be a change for what concern the notifications within the forum, we are moving from Thread to PM, since the PM limitations for Maggiordomo have been lifted.

Thanks for your work on the bot. I have been using it for several weeks and it helps me a lot to keep up with all my disscussions.

That it now notifies via pm is also good. But I would like to have an option implemented where you can choose to be informed via pm or thread. I think with many notifications a thread is clearer and easier to manage than pm's. Is this possible?

I certainly prefer the thread. I have 40+ pages in it and it works great inside my watchlist so I don't have to go elsewhere to check and it doesn't clutter my inbox. PMs will be a major PITA.

I was just wondering if this change was "suggested" due to some forum considerations, or if you are at liberty to go ahead with the change, or even open-up the possibility to choosing the notification method (Telegram, Thread, PM).

The current solution was causing some confusion and problems in the forum ( as previously stated ) and using pm was the next natural choice to substitute the thread notification, since it was possible to lift the limitations.

With pm you have to do some extra work to delete them, but unfortunately there is not a better solution i could think of, without counting switching to telegram.  :-\

What if the bot edited the last post in the thread (by inserting new notifications at the top) instead of creating a new post every time? Up to the 64k limit, then start a new post or remove old notifications off the bottom.

That would reduce the number of posts significantly and perhaps would keep theymos happy.

I like this proposal, in fact any thing but PM will be great, i get an email for every message i receive, i can't imagine receiving an email for every notification, let alone the fact that other PMs will be lost in between, if the PM thing is a must i think i will have to migrate to Telegram.

This is a good idea!  But , then it cant notify you can it? No new reply? If it is possible I think it would have been brought up in the reputation thread for edit proofs? Im just thinking out loud.

And the notifications can be shorter, just "you've been mentioned here >link and the title of the thread here <".
Basically oneliners :)

It will notify you if he quote the old one first and then delete it.

Yes, unfortunately no notifications then. You'd have to bookmark it or something.

I think deleting and reposting would cause essentially the same problems as it does now.

I was thinking it may be a good compromise to have the notifications through PM but with the possibility to decide an interval of time to receive the PM with the notifications (if there is any). I would rather move away from the thread solution.

But i will have to postpone to next week to have something like that.

Are they active now the PM notifications or we still receive notifications in the thread? Shall we remove the threads after we move to PMs? I'd like to keep mine as a reference for now, and maybe delete it later on.

As far as I know, users can't delete threads. Moving to Archival is the only option, and it's there already.

Is it possible to be able to choose between PM and thread?

The PM structure of SMF doesn't allow to read it as a conversation so it is not possible to have all links in the same place. To me this is a step backwards regarding usability.

Not that I care since I use the telegram function, but if I had to choose I would prefer the Thread any time.

I haven't sent a PM to bot on Telegram but I found him and there was start button to start the bot, started and sent hello.

Of course, I sent PM with options in the topic line and telegram:myTelegramusername in body, to user Maggiordomo here on Bitcointalk today.

Still, nothing in Telegram and I was quoted and username was used multiple times so far.

I too liked the thread system for the same benefits. I think PM will be a good enough alternative. I this working right now? I saw a @Piggy post that it should be up and running, but I don't see PMs yet.

I strongly suggest you "Read the Fucking manual". After all that's what it's made for.
It is writting in the OP and then I told you to do it again. Why don't you take advice when you came here asking for it?

Important:
Before or after you have registered you need to contact @Maggiordomo_Service_bot (https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=@Maggiordomo_Service_bot) on telegram (with the same telegram username used for registering) and just write something to him so he can bind your telegram and forum account togheter.

For who is already registered just send a pm with options in the subject of the bot and add in the body:

Code:
telegram:yourTelegramUsername (doesn't matter if with @ or without)

If you did all this and it is still not working you might have an issue. But contacting the bot is mandatory.

Post by: wwzsocki on May 11, 2019, 07:19:23 AM
..."Read the Fucking manual"...

I have already and everything worked until yesterday. I did everything from the manual and that is why I ask for help because is not working.

If you try to help then be calm and do it, and if not, why give answers to my questions?

I was one of the first members who use this bot, so it is clear that I have read the OP multiple times, even today.



My notifications on Telegram still won't work and I don't receive any PM's either. If anybody has any suggestions what could be wrong I will be grateful

I'm sorry, you stated yourself you did not send the bot a pm. Which you need to do. If that's not it I can't help you any further.
When rereading I see you send hello after that. So you technically did send a pm. Reading too fast again. Sorry bro.

i had it on temporarily for some testing but now everything is off, i'm just hitting some 503 (Service Temporarily Unavailable), from time to time but i don't know if it's just the line or some of the test i did. I'll try to run it again a bit later.

Now there is notification interval property (which i will explain better later) that indicate the frequency at which you will receive PM with the notifications occurred in that amount of time (default time for everybody is 60 minutes).

The binding with telegram for new registration should be back working as well.

EDIT: Now is back on, still checking how it goes

From this moment I started to get PM's here on Bitcointalk with notifications which is great of course but still Telegram won't work.



I want to add that this is such a great tool that Theymos should add this as a standard feature. Is so easy to find all the threads you are involved in.

This is just insane how many quotes and mentions one is missing every day.

Maggiordomo notified me two times about winning a lottery and promotion of which I would never remember by myself because the requirement was to post in the thread which I did randomly.

are you still confused? or you were ? anyhow , if you read the OP you will see an update by piggy stating the following

Is ongoing a transition from thread to pm notifications, thread will not be used anymore. This post need to be updated.

so from now on, only PMs and Telegram notifications ,no more archive threads , which is sad - but indeed better than nothing.

Hey Piggy,

Post by: Piggy on May 15, 2019, 06:56:01 AM
This is just for those who want to receive the notification through the forum:

If you want to change the frequency at which you will receive the PM notifications, you can send this command with a number between 0 and 12*60, this indicates the delay in minutes which will occur from the first notification before it will be delivered. I set it to 60 minutes for everybody but is 0 to new people subscribing which means it will be instant.

Code:
notificationinterval:2

If something doesn't work as expected please report it in here


Title: Re: [RELEASED] @mention notification bot - now with Telegram
Post by: LoyceV on May 15, 2019, 07:38:34 AM
I'm unsure about the delay: Most of the time, 1 hour isn't enough to consolidate notifications, so I get the notification exactly 1 hour late. And if I'm online at that moment, most of the time I've seen it already.
When I woke up, I had more than 1 notification, at least at (my) night it would be good to consolidate notifications.
Would it be possible to choose fixed times for notifications, say once a day at my lunch break so I can see if I missed anything?

I'm unsure about the delay: Most of the time, 1 hour isn't enough to consolidate notifications, so I get the notification exactly 1 hour late. And if I'm online at that moment, most of the time I've seen it already.
When I woke up, I had more than 1 notification, at least at (my) night it would be good to consolidate notifications.
Would it be possible to choose fixed times for notifications, say once a day at my lunch break so I can see if I missed anything?

Yes it may be an option as well

...from now on, only PMs and Telegram notifications...

I found PM's a lot better as notifications in the thread.

I have them in a click of a button and to access the thread it was two clicks because it needs to be bookmarked or saved.

Sometimes I had to look for the thread using google search which was time consuming too.

With PM's enabled Maggiordomo bot is again my most used tool on the forum  ;D.




... it still sends me...

Are you still getting them?

Because I don't receive any Telegram notifications.

feryjhie you don't have telegram set on your profile so you need to follow the procedure.


wwzsocki you are set up correctly it seems and you should just receive telegram notifications, i need to verify if something is wrong then.

Edit wwzsocki seems has sent the notification to somebody in telegram, if you didnt get it unsubscribe and register telegram again

Indeed after unsubscribe and subscribe back in the Telegram, notifications started to work as supposed to.

But there is again a problem with PM's because I stopped to receive them from the last few hours and I was quoted and mentioned during this time a few times for sure.

Let's hope that now after resubscribing PM's will be working back again as they should.

Thanks for the update and sorry to be such a pain in the ...

Ok, so everything is working as supposed to. I am getting only Telegram notifications now.

Thank you for great support in the last few days. I will merit this thread with my first free smerit.

This is just for those who want to receive the notification through the forum:

If you want to change the frequency at which you will receive the PM notifications, you can send this command with a number between 0 and 12*60, this indicates the delay in minutes which will occur from the first notification before it will be delivered. I set it to 60 minutes for everybody but is 0 to new people subscribing which means it will be instant.

Code:
notificationinterval:2

If something doesn't work as expected please report it in here

Hello!
If I want to receive notifications once every three hours, I need to send PM to Maggiordomo with subject options and setting:

Code:
notificationinterval:180

or

Code:
notificationinterval:3*60

??

Thanks!

Same here, from yesterday I don't get any notifications. I will try to unsubscribe again and subscribe only for PM's here on Bitcointalk.

I hope this will work and update here if not.

Oh, anyways I found notifications via PM a lot easier to manage because I don't need to go to any other app only can see them from my account after a click of a button.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Tech issue?
Anyway, for me, telegram notifications are most useful than pm
Is nice if you can extract some statistics about use of bot

it's not working for me, the last notification i got was about 40 hours ago, despite the fact that i was mentioned a few times after the quoted post has been posted, anyone else having the same issue ?

edit:

The forum notification (PM)

I wanted to ask you something. Would it be possible to add a feature to your bot so that it sends a notification every time a user I choose created a new thread?
I want to follow a few users from this forum and be informed every time they create new threads. Just new threads, not every post they make. Do you think that is possible to do?

You can already do that with a script that checks differences in the last topics posted page of these users.

I really don't think Piggy will want to implement this in his bot, eventhough it would be quite easy.

Thats interesting. Is that script available somewhere on the forum? Or can you suggest who I should contact to get the script?
Unfortunately I dont have any coding knowledge just in case you are proposing that I create one myself.

The script has nothing to do with the forum. It applies to any webpage really.

You can also try using third party checking software like this: https://visualping.io/

You're looking for a browser extension, such as Check4Change (https://check4change.com/).

General warning: always be careful with browser extensions, especially in combination with irreversible cryptocurrencies.


Update: asche's suggestion looks much better :)

Update: asche's suggestion looks much better :)

Also the browser extension only works when... well when the browser is executing on your machine ;)

Which can be an issue when you want to be alerted at any time hehe.

The best use case here is to execute such script on a vps you own. Some exist written in bash. But as I understand it you have little technical knowledge so you will have to rely on 3rd party software.

In the past i use this trick
- curl url
- md5 it
- check if equal to stored md5
- another curl for send telegram msg

Check my github blackout314/boilerplate/shell

I used in the past for check exams results of college (with email)

Thank you asche, I will try with https://visualping.io and see if it detects changes in the profiles on some of the users I want to follow.
In the address bar I will put the link to their Show the last topics started by this person. I guess that is the right way to do it.

I just don't have time to implement something like that, i can barely keep up with what there is now between work and everything else.  :)
And as you pointed out above, you know exactly where to look to find which threads were started from some user unlike in the case of a mention.
