Bots or robots are programs which are able to log onto an IRC server and perform various automated tasks. They are typically used as tools to administer to a chat room, for example to authenticate users, provide random functions for games, or serve text. A bot service houses one or more bots, the services of which can be obtained upon request.
This category is not for the actual bot software, only for sites which offer the services of a bot running on their server.
