Rotate Multiple Timer Messages in a Single Timer

You can create a rotating timer by using the $(rotate) response variable:

The $(rotate) variable outputs the given messages in a rotation. Each time the timer is posted to chat it will rotate to the next message. After it has posted the last message in the rotation, it will start back from the beginning. This allows you to create a single timer that posts a different message each time it fires.
