  Start using bots : what you need to know ...

If you want to start using bots , this is what you need to know first.

* In Activeworlds you need to pay credits for using a bot
* When starting up a bot , you need to type your citizen number and privilege passwd
* sometimes you also need to type the port number of the universe
* You have to check the compatibility of the bot
* For a few bot programs, the world name length is maximum 8 characters.
* You can use your bot in someone else's world, if the world owner gives the permission for it. Then your citizen number is added in the world rights window.
* You can also use bots in public worlds (as long as AW gives the permission for that)
