Rolling the dice

#TIL (“Today, I learned”) that you can use the discuss space to play board games. The bot will roll the dice for you if you type this:

@discobot roll 2d6


:game_die: 1, 4


@discobot roll 1d100

should give us a random number between 1 and 100

@discobot roll 3d6

Hej! Aby dowiedzieć się, co mogę zrobić, powiedz @discobot wyświetl pomoc.

@discobot roll 1d6
@discobot roll 2d6

Oh, now that is interesting. If you ping Discobot, then it replies in your language (i.e., not in some generic forum-wide default language). @qgil-WMF, this means that pinging Discobot publicly reveals something about your UI prefs settings.


Just for trying if he respond in my language.

@discobot roll 1d100

Bonjour ! Pour voir ce que je peux faire, dites @discobot .

yup. and aparently it even don’t give a result. :disappointed:

@discobot roll 3d6

:game_die: 1, 1, 1

If your language/preferences are set to something non-English, could you try asking Discobot to roll the dice in your language? For example, if your language is set to Spanish, I’m guessing that you would say something like “tirar 2d6” instead of “roll 2d6”.

I could try:

@Discobot lance 1d12

@discobot tirar 2d6

I’ve switched my user interface language to Spanish for the moment.

:game_die: 5, 6

@discobot roll 2d6

¡Hola! Para saber qué puedo hacer, escribe @discobot mostrar ayuda.

So when my UI language is Spanish, Discobot doesn’t take commands from me in English. This is different from MediaWiki, which always accepts English.
