I co-manage a PtokaX based DC++ hub in my college.(Only relevant if you know what DC++ and hubs are) We had a script which registered a bot named
Infobot to the hub. Since, those scripts were getting slower because of very bad programming skills and also, I had some newer features to implement, I rewrote the entire script and created another bot with the name
[BOT] is to maintain uniformity across a wide list of users. Now, to inform all the users about this change, I am mentioning:
Infobot has been deprecated. | Comments welcome at
<forum link here>
My question is, am I correct in using the word
deprecated here? Or should I instead be using replaced as follows:
[BOT]Info has replaced Infobot. | Comments...
as the older script has been deleted. In my opinion, I'd be using the word deprecated when I'm telling about this change to another co-managers of the hub(?) and replaced should be preferred word.
