To create a bot that ran on a citizenship rather than on your ppw like a
regular bot. I guess I'm just interested, wondering if it's possible,
although I know nothing about bot programming, hehe. :-) It'd be cool to
have a bot that didn't use those brackets, though :)

It has been done, but AW didn't like it ;). There's no SDK methods to log a
bot in as a citizenship. So, sorry :(. You could play with VB and some
tools that would take control of aw and work like a bot :). But, without
the AW browser, you cant log in as a citizen. Sorry :(.

Probably a different version of the SDK. I don't think AW will do that..
could lead to some spam problems. (would be flaged as a citizen and would
be allowed at GZ.. could also use Tgrams I'd assume)

well, the tgrams are why it would be awesome :) Maybe AW should add an SDK
thing to let bots reciev tgrams. :-D

Hmm, but what if a company bought a citizenship and used a both like
interface for that and started spamming it's website to you every 2 minutes?
And the 3.3 issue of blocking it.. what if they buy a lot of citizenships
and rotate them? It would be a pain :) I'd just rather use a bot to do odd
tasks for me, if people want to chat with me without the graphics, they can
download all those little clients :D.

On the other hand if they could just recieve them, that'd be cool.

Or maybe a whole different way of allowing bots to interract with others
outside of their range. Like an extended whisper that requires someone to
send a msg first so that the bot cannot send out the extended whisper
without first getting one from that person.

As Joe said, it's been done and AW didn't like it,
It'll all down to writing a custom SDK.

Bots don't need the citizen password for login. That
would mean, that a ppw. would be sufficient to read
someone elses telegrams. I don't think that this is
really a good idea.

You would make it so that the bot has it's own tgram inbox. Like it would be
x-y X being your name and Y being the bots name and tgrams could only be
recieved while the bot was online.
