When somebody does the command !trivia team, team mode begins. With a default nu

Team 1: This specifies the name of Team 1.
Team 2: Name of team 2.
(Team 3): Name of Team 3. If used.

Team 3 victory message: Message displayed if team 3 wins.
Team 4 victory message: Message displayed if team 4 wins.
For example to make the team 1 victory message:
"Team 1 soundly whoops the butts of Team 2".
"*t1 soundly whoops the butts of *t2".
The *t1 and *t2 are replaced with Team 1's and Team 2's names.
Limit Join Period: You can choose to limit the amount of questions which a perso
n must have joined a team by. Or simply leave it not depressed and have no limit
Award messages play when a person in any given game gets a streak of however man
y questions or their score hits a disired amount. All the entries have the same
format. The line is displayed in the box and * is replaced with the nick of the
person and ^ is replaced with either the row they hit for the award or the score
they hit.
"pats * on the back for getting ^ questions in a row." becomes "pats Nick on the
back for getting 3 questions in a row."
The special command is powerful. You can use the internal commands inform and ts
ay to message through notice or trivia channel say.
It issues: (Special command)
Row E.G. 10; -;/kick $nick
Would kick a person for getting a row of ten.
Score E.G. 1000; -;/topic $chan $e1($nick) $e2(broke) $e1(1000) $2(points!)
Would set the topic to the message when somebody breaks 1000 points.
Use $nick to mean the person who won.
Use $chan to mean the current channel.
Avoid using command like "/me grins" as it refers to current chan which could ch
ange while you're looking elsewhere and screw up. Rather, use "/describe $chan g
rins." for this.
To notice somebody you can use the trivia bot's internal command "inform" or to
message the channel "tsay"
If you want something in color surround what you want in color with $e1(Text) or
$e2(Text) depending on with color you want. These refer to internal script comm
ands and will act as such. trivia.award $nick <score> should be done to give poi
nts. Please note it will choose the correct message awarded or deducted.
Should all be easy to understand.
Banned: You can ban people with a right click on their name and going to "Trivia
Ban". The Banned Tab lets you unban them, or add in manual names.
Scores: calls up the scores dialog which allows you to delete or examine scores.
