We’ve changed the way your bots replies to paid group invitations (sent by other residents to the bot). Previously, there were two ways: (a) you stopped your bot from accepting any requests or (b) you allow your bot to accept invitations.
Thus, if you allow your bot to accept an invitation, the bot was accepting paid groups too.
Now bots act in a different way if a resident invites it to the non-free group:
- Bot sends IM to the inviter, asking to give it the money to join the group.
- After receiving the required amount of money (within a single payment) bot joins the group.
This does not affect bot owner inviting the bot into a group – bot accepts your invitation even if “Accept group invitations” option is off.
This measure protects your bot even if you forget to turn off the “Accept group invitations” option in the Bot Control Panel. You don’t need to do anything, bots are powered with this new function already.

We’ve fixed the issue with a Support Bot you may experience today. All Support Bots working as expected, tickets are being saved and forwarded to your managers.
The problem was connected to improper database structure update on one of our servers. (more…)

We’ve added the new command to Bot HTTP API: sit.
This command instructs bot to sit on a specific prim or stand up.
Additional parameter allows saving the object as a permanent sitting location of the bot: bot will sit on it again after logging in (after a sim restart, network reconnection or manual logoff/login sequence).
More information and examples are available in HTTP API documentation.
P.S. This command has been added by a request of a SmartBots’ customer. Thank you for using our APIs!

You can find the give_money command syntax in SmartBots SBSL documentation. (more…)
