Rodney is the bot which announces deaths on the #nethack@freenode channel. He also has a simple database in which users can record useful information for each other; many good tips and advice are contained therein.
Notable parts of Rodney's functionality:
- Game announcements. Whenever somebody ends a game on nethack.alt.org (whether by death, ascension, escape, or #quit), Rodney will announce that fact in the channel. It is considered good form to remark "Go Team Ant!" when somebody dies to an ant.
- learndb. Any member of the channel can view/add/remove/edit items in Rodney's database. This is a useful repository of information as well as humor. In many ways it's a wiki without history.
- dtype was the original programmer.
- paxed has maintained Rodney for some time.
- Eidolos is currently rewriting Rodney.
