copy seeks are certainly useful, Palacinkyman. It's replacing needing to copy a bunch of seeks and gotos with one AIScript line, as well as being more resilient to changes - I'll use it going forward for menus, though my bot isn't very... bottish. Feels like the main addition for me. Comments are always good! I have 10 responses to a seek, I don't want to have to read through each response and AIScript to work out if it is doing what I wanted it to. Continue is useful for adding something in - or if you have a seek that would be a copy of another seek/KP, but, for example, you have to have the bot go somewhere or lead into it in some other way.

Personally, I don't like replacing xnomatch with #nomatch, but that's a me thing, mainly what I'm used to - plus it makes me wary of using # to denote not implemented/placeholders as I have been previously.

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?

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.

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.

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.
