Goodbye, Vbot Staring as a simple bot designed to help us keep track of maps that needed testing in late 2015, and dutifully maintained for years by @Fantasma, our chat bot Vbot survived the jump from Steam Chat to Discord and completely revolutionized how we organized testing for TF2 maps. For their significant contributions to the mapping community with their work on Vbot, Fantasma was awarded a Map Maker's Medallion when they announced they were moving on from the community and could no longer maintain Vbot in January of 2019. Since being transferred to our servers in January, it became clear that nobody knew how to properly maintain Vbot now that the original creator was gone. In light of this, @drp and the rest of the Staff team decided that the best course of action was to create a new bot from the ground up, and on August 9th, 2019, Vbot was taken offline and replaced with our shiny new TF2maps Bot. Introducing TF2Maps Bot TF2Maps Bot is our replacement for Vbot. It has many of the same features, though some features Vbot had may be missing or incomplete. TF2maps Bot lives here: https://bot.tf2maps.net/ The current command list can be found here: https://bot.tf2maps.net/commands.php The major (public-facing) improvements over Vbot include: Automatic uploading of maps to the servers Cleaner Discord responses (with fancy embeds!) Automatic synchronization of the VIP role between the forums and Discord Easier to navigate website Direct links to feedback and demos for the last 10 maps played on the site We need your feedback! Since TF2Maps Bot has been built entirely from the ground up, some things don't work quite the same as they did with Vbot. We'd like your thoughts on the new bot and some of the changes we've made. Suggestions for improvements? Complaints about missing features? Glowing reviews of @drp's bot-making skills? Discuss them below and we'll see what we can do!
