Question Shouldn't there be a sticky of standard bots here to make it easier to develop for new people?

    Like basics of what you need for any given bot, in more detail and actually to be put in action in comparison to only showing the code and not show how it actually plays its part in the code like in many tutorials here.

    For example a standard woodcutting bot where you only have to change the coordinates and supposedly the tree to cut and if to include the signs of the porter.

    Basically examples of code for every skill + how other modules such as banking adds up to them. Otherwise the bot creating community will get extremely monopolized by unfit personalities.

    Hi, I think the reason this isn't here is because there are open source bots. You could potentially get these bots and make changes to them to work with what you are after.

    They are also tutorials in the Tutorials and Resources section.

    This sounds like a good idea, but it wouldn't work the way you want it to.

    Let's say that someone makes a mining bot, and then they make a standard version of it and post it in a thread. That standard version is now useless because there already is a mining bot on the store that uses the exact same stuff.

    You could think of it a different way, and say a user makes a standard version first. Why wouldn't the user then make a bot implementing their standard version and save someone else the time?

    Either way, some person will have to think and write their own original code to write any bot for any skill (unless you make an API for your bots). Posting a standard version becomes redundant and unnecessary as their would always be a bot on the store that does the same thing.

    Sorry for the long post, and I'm not trying to insult your idea with it, it's a good idea in theory, but in practice it wouldn't work.

    Just realized that I missed some parts in my original reply.

    This idea seems practical as banking is a feature that can be used in many different bots. There might already be tutorials for some stuff like this, but if not then I'll consider making some.
    I'm not sure what you mean by this, could you please explain?

    I learn by following example, and reading complemented code really helps understanding how things work.
