Has anyone noticed how the shoutbox "Bot" doesn't work?

Whenever new users have a common question, Bot is silent.

However, should someone with an honour rank of Gold+ say something like "hi im new", Bot can always be counted on to pop up with the helpful quick response.

Why is this? Shouldn't it be the other way round, Bot only answers questions from people BELOW gold rank, not above?

Or maybe he's just there for the entertainment purpose.

No. Bot is triggered by words that are used and isn't limited to an honour level. I find it odd that a Gold or above would even say that so obviously they know it's a trigger and just spamming the bot for the heck of it. Maybe the response triggers just need to be edited a bit, but from what I see there are a lot of trigger words for responses.

Kinda would be nice to see the responses limited to the lower honour levels, just for the fact that the higher can and does spam those responses. :)

Yeah, but that's my point.

I tested it earlier and even using a trigger phrase of "hi im new", wouldn't work. It only worked for the Gold member.

it wont 'only' work for a gold member.

It was likely the way the ordering of the words were. the bot has specific triggers. As long as they are used in the right way, itll come up

Here we go. I now have proof.



Here crazymer says "im new". As you can see, Bot doesn't say a word. Fair enough, maybe it's not a trigger.



But, what's this? Should Lacrimosaangel, a diamond member and moderator, say the exact same phrase, Bot is happy to instantly inform her how to earn points/cash.

You see. It didn't tell the new person. Personally, I have NEVER seen Bot talk to a new member. He will even tell P2S Bot if someone posts a forum topic of "hi im new", Bot will respond.

That is quite odd. If anything, he should respond more to the lower instead of higher. Hopefully it could be changed (r)
