in reply to (AOL bot) Confuse the heck out of everyone you know!

Hey Newrisedesigns,

I'm liking the bot I have. I just have to figure out how to advertise the sucker so more people IM it. Know of any sites with a list that I can add my bot to?

    The best way to advertise on the aim network is to know a lot of people and put up an away message with a link to your website. Be sure the convince them early enough that this thing is cool. What's your bot, anyway? ps. the best time to spread such time wasters around aim is during exam time at the colleges, so I would suggest waiting till December.
      I've found and registered my bot there but haven't received approval for it yet. I'm not into the whole mass messaging thing, not that you were suggesting it, but still, it ain't my style. For now I have a link up in my profile and away messages that will open up an IM box to the bot itself when clicked. Its just up to the user the hit "send". I figure I made it easy enough.

      I don't want the thing to get too huge, especially with all the warning fanatics out there. Just want to get some funny reactions. The screen name I use for the bot is "STFUasshat". Lovely eh? ;)
