Category System

The category system is very important. The syntax for !new, !release, and !add is outlined below in the commands section. As always if you have questions, suggestions or criticisms, feel free to ask in the main chat!

Release Channel

To join the release channel, you will need to connect via IRC. If you would like to know how to do this, feel free to ask in the chat. The channel is #release. The command for most IRC clients to join this channel is: /join #release

IMPORTANT

As listed below, there are two different release commands. ONLY USE !release IF THE RELEASE IS BIG. THIS MEANS POPULAR TV SHOWS, HIGHLY ANTICIPATED MOVIES, GAMES AND MUSIC. DO NOT !release EVERY SMALL THING YOU ADD, USE !add FOR THAT

Commands (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)

Can be Used Anywhere (Dtella Chat, IRC, or PM to metapod)

- Releases

  1.  !new (CATEGORY) (optional 1-30) - Changed syntax as of 12/03/09 - The number is optional. For all releases type "!new all". If you type "!new", metapod will PM you with a list of the categories.
  2.  !release (CATEGORY) (RELEASE NAME HERE) - Example syntax: !release Scrubs.S04E05.HDTV.XviD-LOL - This command will add your release to metapod's database and will also announce to Dtella and the #release channel that there is a new release. You will get a notice to confirm that metapod has added your release.
  3.  !add (CATEGORY) (RELEASE NAME HERE) - Example syntax: !add tv-sd Scrubs.S04E05.HDTV.XviD-LOL - This command does the same as !release, but it does not announce the release to Dtella. Use this for adding non-major releases into the database.

- Requests

  1.  !requests (optional 1-50) - Lists the last X requests to you.
  2.  !searchreq (TERM) - Searches the request database for the query, returns up to 5 results.
  3.  !addreq (CATEGORY) (REQUEST NAME HERE) - Example syntax: "!addreq tv-sd The Office" - This will add your request to the request database. When your request is filled, metapod will send you a message informing you. If you're not online, metapod will message you next time you are online.
  4.  !fillreq uid# - Example syntax: !fillreq 70 - This will mark the given request as filled by you and will modify the timestamp to reflect when it was filled.
