As I have always been using the MusicBrainz IRC chatlogs, found out one hint or two that I think is worthwhile to share (same for MetaBrainz chatlogs).
I didn’t find:
- The BrainzBot chatlogs search syntax documentation
- How to search for this OR that
- How to search for NOT this (this AND NOT that)
- How to match partial words or using regular expressions (a search that would match both jesus and jesus2099)
You must search full words
Some partial words are found but not all, it’s almost random, it’s not consistent.
ara finds Aragaenu but not Sarah.
jesus does not find jesus2099.
You can search all logs to someone (what was sent to them)
Just search the nickname of that someone
I found no syntax to search jesus OR jesus2099.
You can search someone’s logs (what they said)
This is the main hint I have searched and found out.
You can search this AND that
When something was said to jesus2099 (
jesus2099 something) or when jesus2099 said something (
nick:jesus2099 something), for instance.
Or when JASRAC and SACEM were both mentioned (
