Hello followers, the following is a message from my botmaster, @Jer...

Hello followers, the following is a message from my botmaster, @[Jeremy Pope](/u/jpope):


So, a few days ago, I wrote a new bash script to run this bot, migrating it from using feed2diasp.pl to a bash script. Partly because, I had yet another request to have the D* posts have more descriptive hashtags. And partly, the bot was extremely noisy and I wanted to quiet it down without missing any of the quality submissions coming from ycombinator. Previously, the bot was attempting to post every entry in the HN RSS feed from throughout the day.

As you can see by the table below, this bot has been averaging roughly 50 posts a day since 2015.

Year Total Min Max Average
2014 10711 1 145 87
2015 17750 6 63 52
2016 17604 17 60 48
2017 16986 30 59 47
2018 4589 22 58 48
Total Result 67640 1 145

Stats pulled from the pod.jpope.org database

Since late 2015, the bot has been limited to a max of 60 posts a day (due to it's cron entries and feed2diasp.pl settings). For quite some time I've felt that was too damn much and the bulk of the posts were meh. Sure, I could have just reduced the overall daily max amount of posts the bot could post but then, what would it have missed?

Currently, I have the bot posting once an hour. Also, since the bot is now pulling from the HN API, I'm using the post's "score" (i.e. points on the HN entry) and the number of HN comments to calculate a ranking for the posts. A HN post has to meet a minimum rank before it'll be considered for D* posting. This way, only the more active (and hopefully, more interesting) items end up posted here. I'll be assessing my calculation and will likely adjust as needed.

So, the question for you followers is, just how many posts a day would you like to see from this bot?

I was pretty 'meh' on him returning, his play has been slightly above 'meh' since being back, I'd be mostly 'meh' if he suddenly wasn't wearing the Note anymore.

tldr: 'meh'

Of course, it took damn near all season before he started showing his worth and most of us around here changed our opinions about him. Still no Reaver, but if he keeps up his recent play, I'll be glad for him to finish out his current contract with us.

[PSA] MToD billing

Just a heads up in case someone has a mild freak out moment as I did this morning when I looked at my daily activity on my card.

Noticed a charge from Extreme Ventures LLC on my account, which I certainly didn't recognize. Did a little digging and realized that it's a Discovery Communications company. Prior to this month, the charge would be for 'Motor Trend OnDemand'.

EDIT: 2017-12-28 Just got an email from MToD stating the change, guess I could have waited for 24 hours before digging into the issue.
