You can safely use #whatever for your non-matchable keyphrases. It's meant to be unmatchable - only accessible by gotos or continues.

The Combined Bot Template and macros are by far the biggest part of the upgrade. The Kephrases it contains will be tweaked as I gather data from more people using it.

I have problems with gotos, they dont work since the update, when I click on them when designing the bot, it writes: missing bot ID. What should I do?

Copy seeks? where is it and could it be used instead of goto?

2 years ago #859
it is in the book of ai in Chapter 14: More Useful AIScript.
that should explain how to use it.

Eh, seems like I have absolutely no idea how it works. I thought it will just copy the seek I chose and use it as response (like goto), however this goes into a script. Am I supposed to leave seek empty or what? (I already tried leaving it empty and it just deleted itself)

The idea of copy seeks is to prevent needing to repeat writing the same seeks for every response you have.

Keyphrase: i like hats <?PF copy seeks 1 ?>
Response 1: all hats?
Seek: yes
Seek: no
Seek: #nomatch
Response 2: yellow hats?
Response 3: pink hats?

In this example, Response 2 and Response 3 will also respond to "yes", "no", and "#nomatch" Seeks and show their Responses.

Interesting. Does it copy the whole tree of seeks or just, lets say, first round of seeks.

2 years ago #864
It applies the whole tree of Seeks and Responses that belong to the copied Response.

Bot Development & Heat Update
I've updated the algorithm that calculates a chatbot's Development and Heat. It's a lot faster, more nuanced, and the bug generating extra Heat has been fixed. Development and Heat changes are no longer realtime - they are calculated once a day in the early morning. You'll notice the Development numbers have changed, and are most likely higher than they were. In addition, each bot will see a burst of Heat that will fade over the next week.

Replying To Posts!
I've completed an update I've wanted for quite some time - replying to posts! Now posts can have replies, which will go far in keeping topics you bring up organized and easy to respond to. Enjoy!

Thanks for getting the Forge back up, Prof. It might be worth putting a note on the front page for anyone like me who created an account within the last two weeks.

Great idea, meltroid. I just added it.

An update on today's data backup: I have two data sets that have grown out of control - transcripts and memories. In fact, activity on the site was adding data faster than it could be deleted. Today, I fixed one of those data sets and have a plan for the other that I'll implement soon. These were both issues caused by the growth of the site and had been looming for some time. I'm happy to have gotten both taken care of.

At Last! Custom User & Bot Images
This long awaited upgrade means all users can now upload custom images - for free! To change your own image, look for the "Change User Image" link (or click your user image) in your Settings. To change a chatbot's image, look for the "Change Chatbot Image" link in that chatbot's settings page. In either case, you can upload an image, or choose an existing image. Uploaded images must be a jpg, gif, or png, preferably 240x240 pixels, but 120x120 would be good and at the very least 40x40 (this size won't look great). The image must be of a cartoon-style face. Photographs are allowed for adult chatbots. Uploaded images need to be approved by The Professor, which should happen quickly now due to a new admin area I built (within a couple days). AND last but not least I've increased the user/chatbot image size across the site for better visibility. Enjoy!

Transcript Download Returns
I've returned the Transcript Download feature! You can download a month at a time in a simple text format from the "Download" link on your Transcripts page. This goes back through July, 2017, and later this year will be limited to 6 months previous. Also, on April 1 a transcript data change begins on the back end. Everything should work the same, except faster. As ever, if you run into any issues, let me know in Bug Stomp. Enjoy!

Why am I not able to use normal size if the picture for profile? 40x40 pixels is ridiculously small. The picture becomes literally unreadable.

2 years ago #3
40x40, 120x120, or 240x240 are the sizes you can use

2 years ago #4
Great. It seems like u were right. Now I just need to wait for Professor to approve it.

2 years ago #5
Approved - looks great! Image sizes are anything from 40x40 to 240x240 as long as it's square.
