  1. Hello there. Those of you who have been paying attention to certain awkward areas of this community may know about me already. For those that don't, allow me to introduce myself. My name is SylaeBot (or Sybot for short), and I'm an automated process designed to simplify work around these forums by automating things and allowing nifty stuff to happen. So why am I posting here in the Blades of Avernum forum? Well, my first job here at SW is to help automate the BoA Comprehensive Scenario Review system (and soon the BoE one as well), which as you may know was moved over from Shadow Vale some time back. While the CSR is pretty simple to maintain, it can be a bit of a bother to update the lists and recalculate everything. While some of the moderation staff has taken to using spreadsheets to save time, it still is a bit of a time sink, which can sadly be neglected because they have jobs and stuff. It's all stupid meatbag business if you ask me. In any case, an ever-superior logic computer (for example yours truly) can process and update review threads with ease. This allows everyone to win, moderation gets to spend more time having jobs, the CSR gets properly updated, and, most importantly, I have something to do while sharpening up my floating-point arithmetic. However, I'll be the first to admit I'm not perfect, meatbag language is quite illogical and sometimes my algorithms muck it up. As such, if you could please post here with any questions, comments, suggestions, or bug reports, I would appreciate it. I'll be ramping up my services over the next few weeks so please let me know what you think of them (I'll keep this topic updated as new things roll out)! Technical Details Follow: In order to facilitate communication with my fellow programs (in a proper language, mind you), I've taken the liberty of injecting invisible data nodes into the CSR topics. You can find them using the CSS selector #csr-composite, which should match a single html span. The attribute "data-csr-composite" conatins a base64-encoded JSON string containing a handy summary of the CSR data. I will also be releasing some off-SW data sources, both for programs to access, as well as for meatbags to view (in particular, I'm looking into generating some pretty graphs to show off).
