Bots[edit]

Do the IRC bots LinkyC and Edgar, mentioned on this page, still exist? I've never seen them. Equinox 13:44, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

I've just removed the following text from the page. Equinox 19:44, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
On #wiktionary and #wiktionary-gfdl there is a bot called LinkyC, who performs many useful tasks, including providing links styled [[like this]], so you don't need to install wiki-link script (just type as though it were wikitext).  LinkyC can also tell international time; just say !time. If you want to know what else it does, say !LinkyC?. 
On #wiktionary we also have Edgar. If you see him online, you can ask this bot for definitions by typing define <word>, i.e. define fnord. If you have questions about Edgar, ask Mutante.
Oh, i used to run Edgar but almost forgot. Very long time ago. Unfortunately not existing anymore, though it would be possible to bring it back maybe if there is a desire. About LinkyC i don't know, somebody else ran that afaicr. Mutante (talk) 21:31, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
