Bot will reply in threads only if tagged. As a note, not all members will be able to tag Bot. Only Verified members.
That will of course be tweaked if needed, so try to show some responsibility and if noted by others being misused/abused as for example a way to side-step this forums rules, please report it. All posts on this forum has the report option available.

We will create an AI forum where you will be able to have a thread with continued replies from Bot - later in the year.

Some of the little tips and info. shown on the right side of the forum are pretty good. I refreshed my browser a dozen times in checking them out :)

To prevent users from being irritated, can something like “enable bot activity” be added when creating threads and browsing the forum?

Maybe the bot activity can be hidden for some?
Or maybe some would still prefer human reply.

I see the bot went off last night, this morning I click on New Posts and get 5 pages, normally its 2. Henceforth I will no longer read replies by the bot as I have better things to do. :)
There are a few tweaks needed to make the bot work on a forum; to set it up we need to see what he can't and can do.

I would like an icon for acknowledging a post as "Informative". In place of that, I've been using Like to respond. A lot of times I do Like a post, but as in the Do not track thread, I found some of the posts informative (I had Chrome do not track on) so I just hit Like. No biggie, just thought I'd mention it :)

Any chance of separating crypto currency and blockchain into two sub-forums? The current forum seems to be rapidly becoming a crypto token investment advice column to the point it now carries an advice disclaimer.

Blockchain/Web3 development is far more than just crypto speculation, indeed it can fundamentally provide opportunities for decentralised(non-government control) services(banking/identity) for billions of people World wide who currently don't have access, not just a few Ferrari driving wannabe's.

Seems the current forum is like including gambling apps in the Operating System forum.

Appreciate the opportunity to vent... cheers.

I use "Reputation" only when I find a post really helpful and informative. Otherwise, most of the time I just use "Like" or "Applause". Getting another icon for reacting to an informative post wouldn't matter because even now some members just like spamming "Reputation" on every other post they see.

That was "informative"..lol :) But seriously, thank you for the reply, and suggestions to use in its place :)

All the extra features when writing a message/post became unavailable to me. I can manually add some by using tags, but I can’t upload images the easy way either.
Also, when quoting someone, the quote appears as HTML code and not as formatted text.

It’s on Safari for iOS, haven’t tried on Mac or Windows.

Hey @Trident
Click on the 3 dots next to the Undo button. Then enable back the editor by clicking the [ ] button.
