3:12 AM
Hi @Jim! Have a look around.
 
 
So what do we need to know re: the bot? Is there specific syntax we need to use to trigger things?
 
You'll see
Anyway, I'm up for defending
 
:) how mysterious
Ok, shoot.
 
Let's wait for the bot (and more people)
 
(sorry, the bot's in the wrong room, just a sec)
 
3:39 AM
Type !!start <letter> to begin, or !!help for a list of commands
 
there we go
 
!!start T
 
Deusovi defending T
 
I think your users are switched around... :)
 
that's intentional
PSE Contact can't pin things
 
3:40 AM
..kk
 
too low rep
 
the bot needs to have 100rep to be an RO
 
@Jim - we're playing in here if you want to watch and maybe join in

When there's so many clues, you can probably just wait a bit instead of piling more on
 
+1
!!unstar 5
 
4:14 AM

-1 tE, remember?
 
4:21 AM
...duh
I was referring to Stacks' answer though
 
2, was telegraph
 
I don't get the "please do" part
 
!!unstar 2
 
telegraph?
 
Stop, at the end of any sentence in a telegraph. It was an allusion rather than a straight clue
Please do was to hopefully throw Deus, but it threw you too
 
4:24 AM
Sorry, back. Had terminate too, so was a miss from me anyway.

2 (Alconja): examination
 
No, it's not test

brb...
 
12 2 20
 
5 (boboquack): 12 2 20
 
Aaaah why so many numbers
 
There are too many numbers happening
 
2 of 50 states start with TE, which is interesting
but I think it has to be a coincidence
 
4:29 AM
Alconja - Tennessee and/or Texas?
(I had thought so too, but wasn't sure)
 
+1 (texas)
 
Why 2?
 
2nd biggest
 
Why Texas and not Tennessee?
 
oh, by size
 
4:29 AM
Oh
Duh
 
I thought it was by order of entry, which is why I wanted to Google things
 
!!unstar 2
Vocab word
 
2 (stacksfiller): Vocab word
 
No, it's not term
 
!!unstar 2
 
4:32 AM

I like that one
 
Aha!
No, it's not TEENS
Clever!

4:33 AM
just teen?
 
...teenage(r/d/rs)?
 
Nothing to do with that :(
 
Oh, cool
 
4:33 AM
haha
!!unstar 3
 
I would clue that 13 2 19
 
I figured it was exclusive, not inclusive
to throw me off
 
Yeah I get it now too
 
@stacks you mean you have contact on mine?
 
No, I get why the "2" makes sense with teen
I was confused
Its just a to
I'd have guessed teenager if I thought of it
 
4:36 AM
@Alconja I assume you didn't get teen?
 
Nope. I have something else, so I'm either smarter or dumber than the rest of you. :)
 
:D
 
hammering down
 
2 (Alconja): hammering down
 
I'll be back soon
I'm very curious on 5 now, if you end up getting that right

"Looks outside, and sees that it's [teeming|hammering down]"
middle of the road
 
Oh, just looked it up - apparently that can mean "raining heavily"
 
4:44 AM
1 (Alconja): middle of the road
 
I had no idea
No, it's not temperate
 
maybe a cultural thing
!!unstar 1
 
Have to go now. Bye!

1 (Alconja): Homer sure built a nice cage

4:53 AM
Hey Techidiot!
 
Hey!
Can anyone also pin the bot commands?
 
!!help
 
**Defender**:
To start a game, type `!!start <letter>`.
To reveal a letter, type `!!add <letter>`.
To end the game, type `!!reset`.
**Attackers**:
All clues should be in bold. The bot will automatically assign a number to the clue.
**Everyone**:
To unstar a clue, type `!!unstar <number>`.
To disable the bot, type `!!shutdown`.
To see this message again, type `!!help`.
 
Awesome!
 
Actually, you shouldn't star that - don't want to clutter up the starboard
 
4:57 AM
I'll just copy the stuff to my sticky.
 
The employee who is leaving soonest?
 
2 (stacksfiller): The employee who is leaving soonest?
