BDS Bot/Client database search and statistics pageYou may now search through the BDS database of BDS compliant client/bot information on this page, which also includes usage statistics for bots and clients by type. You may also search a username and see how many bots are registered as "owned" by that person. The information comes straight from Botdom, via DeathShadow--666's server to mine, and is updated on a cron (automatically) every 30 minutes.BDS Bot/Client database search and statistics page by DivinityArcane
Edit: deviantART staff should be able to search the BDS database, as long as they have a staff symbol ($, ^, @, +, °)
Edit 2: The page has been unified, and the new statistics graphs have been added. They are by far more convenient, interactive, and accurate. As of now, searches are powered by Botdom's database (owned by DeathShadow--666) and statistics are powered by a database compiled by PoliceBot (owned by myself). Give it a go!
If any issues are encountered, p
Hey guys.Howdy idlers.Hey guys. by DivinityArcane
As many of you know, I host the bot, website, and other such things related to :#dAmnIdlers: on my own server. The server fees are around $65 every month, and a lot of the bandwidth and usage goes to things related to :#dAmnIdlers: lately. As I've mentioned before, I pay the $50 chunk of the fees directly every month, and am willing to continue doing so. What I do ask, is that if any of you have any spare funds to contribute, you consider doing so. While it's not necessarily a life consuming project, it does take some time and effort to keep running, and is part of what I pay for every month. So, I'd like to leave the $15 chunk of the server costs up for donation (of any amount) in the future. If possible, it'd be great if that $15 was met every month, so essentially the project could pay for itself. If you [or anyone you know] would like to consider making a small donation to the project cost, you can do so on this page [through PayPal or cr

As of writing, deviantART provides some APIs which third party developers can use in applications. This allows people to create applications such as Pickley's Sta.sh Client - applications that allow you to interact with deviantART away from the website itself, and even when away from your computer. A minimal OAuth2 API is exposed, which allows users to authorise applications with their accounts, which, in turn, allows applications to perform certain actions with your account.
The OAuth2 API could do with some changes, but is fine for the time being. Aside from OAuth2, deviantART provides an API for sta.sh, and some other basic APIs, which are documented on the developers page. While Sta.sh has a somewhat robust API, the rest of the website's features do
#dAmnIdlers has moved to a new server!You may notice some downtime as far as the website goes for the shadowkitsune domain (until DeathShadow--666 updates the DNS records for the domain), but the site should still be working at my domain. The shadowkitsune subdomain should be back up today. Changes to these two domains may be anywhere from instant, to taking up to a day depending on how long it takes your computer to update its DNS resolver cache. You can flush your caches if you don't feel like waiting.#dAmnIdlers has moved to a new server! by DivinityArcane
As far as the change, I have moved it from New York to Los Angeles. The bot should now respond up to 15 times quicker to dAmn (the ping is now ~10ms, compared to the ~120ms it was before). This provides for a quicker and more fluid game.
Aside from switching servers, there are now random battles every 30 minutes. You can gain or lose 5 percent of your time to the next level depending on the outcome of these battles. Just one more thing that can help you level up quicker.
#dAmnIdlers site changes.Nothing too seriously serious, just a few small updates to the site. Tags have been added for the creator (myself) and Guardians (Moderators). They look about the same as the DICTATOR (admin) tags you may have seen next to staff names in the listing before, sans the fact that their colors are different. Notification boxes have been added for CREATOR and GUARDIAN as well, which can be seen on corresponding user info pages.#dAmnIdlers site changes. by DivinityArcane
I have also added a hits counter at the top of the page, under the "Last modified" time stamp. This is somewhat useful for seeing how many people have viewed the page since the last time you've visited. As with everything else, if you want the source to this so you can use something similar for your own site, you can see it here.
The third addition on the list is sort modes. You can now choose to have the list sorted by time idled, which is the default; newest users
#dAmnIdlers badges!Yup! Yet another addition to :#dAmnIdlers:! This time around, it's something more simple, and maybe more fun for the non-developers amongst us. It's badges. They basically display your level, stats, etc and are pretty cool to throw on your profile or your website. The url for a badge is http://damnidlers.shadowkitsune.net/badge.php?user=someone#dAmnIdlers badges! by DivinityArcane
Just change the "someone" on the end to your username! For example, mine would be http://damnidlers.shadowkitsune.net/badge.php?user=divinityarcane
Which would create:
As usual, they're updated every time the database is, which is every five minutes at the moment. Have fun, and enjoy!
Edit: If you're looking to contribute to #dAmnIdlers, you can donate a few cents towards the server costs. It costs around $65 a month to run my servers, but I usually cover the $50 chunk from my bank. If you want to contribute towards the other $15, go right ahead! I'd be more than grateful to receive that shiny penny to keep the projec
#dAmnIdlers API!So, for those of you who are aware of the IdleRPG I've been running for dAmn named :#dAmnIdlers:, you should know that there's a website (which I've recently updated) that can be found at this location which has a listing of all the registered users, as well as information on each user. For the developers among you who would like to integrate some stats into your works (bots, applications, websites, etc) I wrote a simple API to obtain information related to the users of #dAmnIdlers.#dAmnIdlers API! by DivinityArcane
The script can be found here and using it is quite simple. There are two important variables that you can pass to it. The first is fmt, which stands for format. Currently, the supported formats are PHP (which returns a PHP array) and JSON (which returns a JSON object. To get the full listing of users in JSON format, you would use the URL http://damnidlers.shadowkitsune.net/data
A guide to bot ownershipA guide to bot ownershipA guide to bot ownership by DivinityArcane
Welcome, fellow deviants, to A guide to bot ownership. I'm DivinityArcane (Formerly known as Kyogo), and I'll be your guide for today. First things first, let's take a look at a couple of the things that bots can do.
First off, take a look at things like :faq510: and decide if a bot is even the right choice for you.
A bot can do many things, but a popular misconception is that they're just there. For a bot to be in your chatroom, it has to be running on yours [or someone else's] computer. If you close it on the computer, it leaves the room. For some people, this may be inconvenient (I know, it's hard to minimize a program sometimes. It bugs me too!) but that's just how it goes. If you want a bot, but don't want it to be running on your computer all the time [and therefor have to leave your computer running so that the bot will stay online], you can either get a friend to
