What is it?!
Lafiel is an event bot that prints useful information about the current AniDB activity.
Where to find it?!
How to use it?!
Lafiel has no useful commands for normal users. She should only be watched passively.
Looking at the full log output can be sometimes tiring, so a good idea would be to filter it. A great tool for this is your IRC client. Here is an example for Irssi:
To use this example, edit out from the regexp the events you want to see, delete all linebreaks to make the example a single long line, and paste it into your irssi client.
/ignore -regexp -pattern "( ANIME\ ADDED|ANIME\ EDITED|ANIME\ DELETED| ANIME\ CATEGORY\ ADDED|ANIME\ CATEGORY\ DELETED| ANIME\ GENRE\ ADDED| ANIMEGROUP\ COMMENT\ ADDED|ANIMEGROUP\ COMMENT\ DELETED|ANIMEGROUP\ COMMENT\ EDITED| ANIMEGROUP\ MARKED\ DROPPED|ANIMEGROUP MARKED ONGOING| ANIME\ PRODUCER\ ADDED|ANIME\ PRODUCER\ DELETED|ANIME\ PRODUCER\ EDITED| ANIME\ RELATION\ ADDED|ANIME\ RELATION\ DELETED|ANIME\ RELATION\ EDITED| ANIME\ TITLE\ ADDED|ANIME\ TITLE\ DELETED|ANIME\ TITLE\ EDITED| AUDIO\ ADDED|AUDIO\ DELETED|AUDIO\ EDITED| CREQ\ GRANT| EP\ ADDED|EP\ DELETED|EP\ EDITED| FILE\ ADDED|FILE\ DELETED|FILE\ EDITED| FILE\ EP\ REL\ ADDED|FILE\ EP\ REL\ DELETED|FILE\ EP\ REL\ EDITED| FILE\ RELATION\ ADDED|FILE\ RELATION\ DELETED| GROUP\ ADDED|GROUP\ DELETED|GROUP\ EDITED| NEWS\ ADDED| PRODUCER\ ADDED|PRODUCER\ DELETED|PRODUCER\ EDITED| REVIEW\ ADDED|REVIEW\ DELETED|REVIEW\ EDITED| VIDEO\ ADDED|VIDEO\ DELETED|VIDEO\ EDITED| SUBTITLES\ ADDED|SUBTITLES\ DELETED|SUBTITLES\ EDITED| USER\ SIGNUP )" Lafiel[AR]!*@anidb.info PUBLIC
For other clients that support ignoring by regular expressions, you can use the appropriate command syntax and use all that is between "-characters as the regular expression. If your IRC client does not support regular expressions(mIRC(does it?) comes into mind) you will have to find another way.
