Managing Pools

Setting up multiple Pools is very easy

NOTE: Only Botowners can manage Pools. You have to be recognized by the bot, else you can't fire any of the commands. Be sure you have +n rights and a valid hostmask on the bots userfile.

You can add as many Pools as you want. Apiurl and Apikey are the Values from your MPOS installation.

Add a Pool


e.g. !addpool http://yourpoolurl.tld BTC PPLNS 1

Add Apikey to Pool

/msg Botnick !apikey POOLURL APIKEY

e.g. /msg Poolbot !apikey http://yourpoolurl.tld 23984710298674309812734098712309471092743

Delete a Pool

!delpool POOLURL

e.g. !delpool http://yourpoolurl.tld

Activating a Pool for Block advertising

!blockfinder POOLURL enable

e.g. !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld enable
or   !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld true
or   !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld 1

Deactivating a Pool for Block advertising

!blockfinder POOLURL disable

e.g. !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld disable
or   !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld false
or   !blockfinder http://youpoolurl.tld 0

Setting different Channel Announces for specified Coin

NOTE: If not set for Coin, default Channels from Config file will be used. If you set different Channels to advertise the Coins, config file entries will only be used to recognize Commands typed in channel, not for Advertising Blockfinder Statistics.

Activating Announce for specified Coin to a specific Channel

e.g. !announce COIN #channel enable
or !announce COIN #channel true
or !announce COIN #channel 1

Deactivating Announce for specified Coin to a specific Channel (defaults from config File will be used)

e.g. !announce COIN #channel disable
or !announce COIN #channel false
or !announce COIN #channel 0

Deleting Announces from Database

!announce COIN #channel delete

Showing Announcement entries, will show all entries in Announce Table


Using Commands to query the Infos

Let's say the Value "BTC" is the Coin Name, used to query the Pool. So, if your Pool Coin is set to "BTC" you can query the bot with following command

!pool BTC

Querying userinfos works like that


Commands ACL

If set command_protect "0" is set to 1 in config, You can set access rights for every command and coin in defined Channels. Only set Commands that should be protected in use. Here is a basic example.

set protected_commands {

This is a Standard List of Commands that are protected. If you want specific Commands not to be protected, remove them from the list and they will trigger in every Channel. If you want to allow commands for a specific channel or coin, only activate them via !command.

Use one of the Values set in protected_commands as COMMANDNAME. If you use ALL instead of COMMANDNAME, all commands are allowed in specified channel.

e.g. !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel enable
or !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel true
or !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel 1

You can simply disable the Command like this

e.g. !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel disable
or !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel false
or !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel 0

Or delete them from Command list

e.g. !command COMMANDNAME COIN #channel delete

NOTE: Commands in protected_commands and not enabled via !command, will not work

Creating self defined Output

In output.tcl, there are predefined output variables. If you want to create your own message that will be posted to channel or by private message, you have to create your own text in the putput variables of each section. Now there are predefined standard messages, which can be used to post the relevant information. You can also use different messages based on coins you set in config.tcl

Standard Output looks like this and is predefined

set output_balance "Coin: \0032%balance_coin%\003\
| User: %balance_user%\
| Confirmed: %balance_confirmed%\
| Unconfirmed: %balance_unconfirmed%\
| Orphan: %balance_orphan%"

Customized output can look like this and is disabled by default

set output_balance_percoin(btc) "Coin: \0032%balance_coin%\003 - test output btc"
set output_balance_percoin(ltc) "Coin: \0032%balance_coin%\003 - test output ltc"

Customized output can be set for every coin added to config


If you are on IRC and the Bot sits in your channel, type one of the following commands to communicate with the bot and get the output right in the channel. All this commands can be used as a direct message to the Bot. You only have to do /msg BOTNICK COMMAND. So nothing is visible in the channel.
