If you want Dankirk on your own server, scroll a bit further and see "How to get Dankirk for my server?".
Bots purpose is to answer spontaneous questions mainly asked by guests and lower builder ranks, record stats, and otherwise support the servers management, eg. by auto performing a "hacked account check" on joining players. (More in Misc Functions)
The bot is currently on 11 classic servers and partially on 2 SMP servers.
I'd really appreciate any donations via PayPal

How to get Dankirk for my server?
However, here's some prerequisites you need to take care of before contacting me:
- Set up an IRC channel for your Minecraft server. fCraft's IRC settings can be found in it's configuration tool. (ConfigGUI.exe)
- Tick all checkboxes in fCraft's settings related to messages between IRC and game (chat, colors, joins/leaves, kicks, promotes)
- If the selected IRC network supports it (most do), register fCrafts bridge bot so you can give it autovoice status on the channel. Later you'll need to give autovoice status for my bot too.
After your PM I will join my bot to your channel and contact you with a password reset link for my bot's configuration website. Once you have set a password, you should share it with other trusted people so settings can be changed even when you aren't present.
Next you'll need to set up rest of the bot settings for your server. I will help with this part to make things faster.
To access the configuration pages you'll need a password set by a server admin.
Website options explained
- Settings page
Server Name - This name will be pasted when players (guests) ask "what's the name of this server".
Bot Name Regex - Regular expression of the IRC bot fCraft or similiar software uses for the server. Regexes are case-sensitive.
Bot Auth Name - For additional security you can register your server's bridge bot for the IRC network, if you did, put the registered name here.
Website - This website will be pasted for appealing etc.
HowToFly - Reply for the most notorious question.
Bot Muted/Disabled - Disables all replies on the server. (!mute/!unmute affects this setting)
Listen in Frontpage Stats - Untick if you don't want your server stats shown to others.
Rank Detection - Bot will be able to tell players rank by analyzing the colors and prefix of the playername printed to IRC.
Impersonation Check - The bot attempts to detect and warn for random IRC users that have similiar looking nicks to users that have +voice or @op status. Type !allow <nickname> or voice them if the warning is falsepositive.
Fun Facts - Tells server stats based facts when asked.
Jokes - Tells poor jokes when asked
Sing-along Themes - Can singalong MLP and Pokemon themes in verses with players
Multilanguage/Non-English server - Tick to disable !english
Ranks page is pretty self explanatory. Fill in the rank details so they match the server settings and IRC messages. Remember to click save.
The Tier of the rank tells which rank is higher. Higher tier = higher rank. Tier must be between 0-99. All unidentified player color+prefix combinations will be treated as of tier 0.
Custom Rules page
If you have knowledge in "regular expressions" you can define your own bot replies here for the server.
The checkbox on the left side enables/disables the regmatch and it's reply.
A performance test will be done for the expressions to verify they can be used efficiently.
Should the test fail, the rule will be saved but disabled.
In your custom replies you may use following variables: $nick, $rank, $nextrank, $players, $ircnames

Bot automatically checks if any joining player is on "publicly known" hacked accounts list and warns them if they are. Bot uses this website to do the checks: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
Stats like number of kicks, bans, promotes, demotes, joins, and replies are recorded for later use and are viewable via website.
The bot can detect if /say is used to impersonate someone on the server and announces this with "That's wasn't real <nickname>". The reply: "That wasn't me O_o" is seen when Dankirk is being impersonated.
On IRC I (the real me) will always talk through my bot which uses an authed nickname "Dankirk". I will never make a second connection or use any other nickname.
In game i use playername "dankirk".
The bot has a general spam protection of 1 second. This means that after a reply the bot will ignore all other messages until a second has passed. Note that there may be delay between IRC and the game. This prevents the bot flooding itself out of irc network.
There is also player specific spam protection. Any player lower rank than Op that asks more than 5 questions within 4 minute interval gets ignored for next 30 minutes.
