I have created several versions of my IRC Bot:
v1 was a not extendable irc bot written in PHP, don't want to talk a lot about this one :')
v2 was a desktop app written in C#. It had a nice GUI, you could easily change settings, enable or disable plugins etc. But the code what very ugly.
v3 was a nice extendable irc bot written in PHP. It had a pretty nice plugin system, the only problem was that you couldn't reload plugins at runtime.
v4 will be the best from v2 and the best from v3. It has a nice object oriented plugin api, it has an GUI, where you can change all your settings etc, but there'll be also a console mode. And the best: it's written in python. Which means easily plugin creation, reload plugins without restarting the bot, crossplatform and a lot more.
