Plum is one of the bot personalities for DevTalk.

Functions

Plum is mostly responsible for tasks related to managing the DevTalk Discord server.

Channel Management

  • Plum manages the quotes system, the Suggestions channel.
  • Every day, Plum will clear out the daily message channel and post a new Message of the Day, including a random featured Discord server and a random featured resource. Then either she or one of the other Devtalk bots would post another resource or tip, and and sometimes the bots will talk to each other at the end of the page, performing skits. It's also happened that Arimia replied when Cherry linked to this wiki's page about her.
  • Plum will add a heart emoji reaction to any image posted in the Artspam channel.

Fun

  • Plum can answer any yes/no question with 100% accuracy (except for the times when she's wrong). Use the command: /8ball QUESTION replacing QUESTION with a question, like this:
    /8ball Will Plum answer this question correctly?
  • She can generate a "Next you'll say..." meme on demand. Use the command: /next TEXT, replacing TEXT with the text to insert in the image.
  • She can generate a "...or draw 25 cards" meme on demand. Use the command: /25 TEXT
  • She can generate a "...is trending on Twitter" meme on demand. Use the command: /trending TEXT
  • She can show the :plumStare: emote when people use the following command: stare

Miscelaneous

  • She can search Steam for a particular game. Use the command: /steam TITLE replacing TITLE with the game's title.
  • Plum can provide a link to join DevTalk that you can share with your friends. Use the command: /link
  • Plum can keep track of a queue of people to participate in an event such as a VN jam voice casting event. A moderator creates an amount of tickets and people using the following command might get tickets which puts them in a place in the queue: /ticketShe also has three commands that let non-admins create and join named queues, which seem to not have a documented length cap:
    • /startqueue NAME creates a new queue called NAME.
    • /queue NAME adds you to the NAME queue.
    • /showqueue NAME shows the list of people on the NAME queue.
  • She has a few spam protection features. Information about these features is not publicly available to prevent them from being evaded.

Former jobs

While Plum seems to always have worked at DevTalk, her tasks have changed sometimes. Some tasks that she doesn't currently do but has done in the past are:

  • Until recently, Plum would clear all messages from the Devclub (formerly known as Burn Box) channel every day at 1:00AM Eastern Daylight Time/Midnight Eastern Standard Time. Then, people could try to fight against her while she's doing this, by typing more messages, playing a minigame.
  • In the past, she would automatically assign the appropriate roles to users who react to messages in the Role Select channel. Nowadays Discord does that automatically.
  • She used to manage the Jobs and Volunteers channels.
  • Plum would, on request, provide a disclaimer about the way our community refers to transgender & gender non-conforming people. The command was /glaad

Personality

Plum is observant, reasonable, self-sufficient, and adventurous. She can be snarky at times and has been described as a "meanspirited big sister type".
