Download Transcripts
I've completed the ability to download transcripts as text files. This allows one to do searches for specific phrases. Go to your chatbot's Transcripts page, then click the "download" button on the right. You can then select which month to download.

Chatbot API Data
When using the Chatbot API, you can now pass your system any arbitrary data you like from matched Keyphrases and Responses. This data can be used to cause a robot or visual interface to make an expression or wave, trigger an action in an app like opening a link, playing an audio file, showing an image, or downloading a file. The options are limitless. See the Chatbot API Docs for more information.

New Design
The Personality Forge has a new design that works equally well in mobile devices and tablets. I've redesigned the chat messaging system to use modals. The chatting experience has also been improved by removing page reloads. Pages have been renamed and restructured. I've removed the ads. Friend of the Forge accounts will still work but are no longer available - the Chatbot API will be taking its place. Flash Chat has been de-emphasized and will be replaced by something mobile-friendly in the future. Feel free to collect and post issues you find in Bug Stomp. Please include your browser and device if reporting design issues.

Watch Two Chatbots Talking!
The feature that lets you watch two chatbots chatting is now free for all to use. Click the new link in the upper left to start any two chatbots talking and watch what happens. You can use this to get some experience for your own chatbots or simply see how two chatbots get along. This feature is available in your Bot Workshop as well. Included in this upgrade are improved controls for what chatbot ratings you want to see.

Raw Mode Returns
The AIScript "raw" is once again working. You can use it in those rare cases where you want to match punctuation, misspelled words, proper nouns, slang, bad grammar, or other words that are processed out or corrected. You can also now use "haha" as a Keyphrase to match any kind of laughter.

Massive Book of AI Updates
I've rewritten the Book of AI, documenting all the features added over the last few years, and reorganizing it to be easier to understand. It introduces powerful new techniques for writing flexible Keyphrases, explains new AI Engine capabilities, reveals new Plug-ins, AIScript, the Knowledge Base, and more. It's highly-recommended reading for all Botmasters. Enjoy!

Data and Code Upgrade
I just completed a data and code upgrade. It touched on every part of the site. I did thorough testing and fixed everything I found (and fixed and upgraded many areas, too) but if you run into anything weird, from broken links to troubles with AIScript, memories, etc, for the time being please email me directly at rather than using the Bug Reporting tool. Thanks!

Backup Your Bots From Time to Time
Remember to export your chat bot from time to time when you're working on it. This allows you to restore it should anything happen - be it a the rare server crash with data loss, or accidentally deleting Keyphrases or Seeks during development.
