##crawl Postquell announcement bot survey

Hi all, I want to do a survey of ##crawl users on my announcement bot, Postquell. It's a bit hard to conduct surveys in an irc channel so I hope there is a good overlap with users here.

Suggestions of which milestones are most relevant to announce are also welcome. Since the start of the tourney I have made Postquell's filters a lot stricter to reduce the level of spam, as of writing this post it will announce:
1. Winning
2. First rune found (per game)
3. Deaths with at least 1 rune
4. Finding the Orb
5. ziggurat levels 14, 21, 27 and exit

Which has reduced it to roughly an announcement every few minutes.

I could do without the rune announcements, they're by far the most common and it's always a Lair rune. The early ziggurat exit announcements are also a bit weird, nobody's going to go spectate someone because they left a zig at level 9. Overall I think the filter is very good though.

If you want to announce things that are spectate-worthy, maybe announce when a player is almost dead. Then people might spectate to try to save them. Maybe if the player just dropped below 20% HP at XL>10. To cut down on spam you could only report the first two times that happens in any game, and only report at most once per thousand turns.

Unfortunately, that does not currently generate a dgl milestone. Only things that show up in the !lm command can be filtered for or against.

Re: ##crawl Postquell announcement bot survey

I like the bot announcements but don't like them in ##crawl. If postquell had its own channel I would join that and reference it occasionally.

If I could figure out some way to get bot messages to show up in a different tab of my IRC client I would do that.
