Botwiki Updates #12

Apologies to the folks who submitted their bots via recently: I received your submissions, and really appreciate them, but will need a bit more time to go through them.

With that being said, I would also like to take the opportunity and let everyone know that if you’d like to get involved with Botwiki, this newsletter, or any other related project, I’d love to hear from you!

As for some future plans, there are some interesting interviews coming soon, I should be releasing more badges — and a few other things that will be announced when ready 🙂
