Someday, there will be some manner of introductory paragraph here. Today is not that day, however.

Promptbot is currently active in #WritingPrompts on SnooNet.


To give Promptbot a command, type either "promptbot, <command>" or "!<command>"

General commands

  • lists » lists names of all lists currently in promptbot
  • random » random entry from any list in promptbot
  • List commands

    The following commands apply to any list. To specify the list, replace <listname> with the name of the list. Usually the list you'll want is "prompt." See example usage for further clarification.

    List commands example: prompt list

    Entry commands

    Entry commands example: prompt

    Sprint commands

    Sprints are informal competitions against other writers in the chatroom to write as much as you can within a certain period of time. Typically, sprints last 15 to 30 minutes. You are not required to share whatever you write during the sprint, though you are free to do so! Word counts are self-reported, but since there are no prizes for wordsprints, lying or making up ridiculous numbers would really only be cheating yourself (and annoying others).
