What do you think of TuxBot? Do you want it around here?
I feel exactly the same wayI prefer to interact with people, even if I don't get the most substantiated information. I don't mind the bot but only in its separate environment, where you know you're gonna get a bot answer
Exactly!I do not mind Tux, but the bot should be where it is or only respond when specifically invoked.
It could get annoying on TuxBot's sub-forum when one member to correct another user and TuxBot has to respond to it contributing almost nothing useful about it. I get annoyed, but I shouldn't.
People all around the world read this forum.
TuxBot is based on OpenAI's ChatGPT (using GPT 3.5) and can be very helpful. I gave him the personality of a cool California surfer. He knows quite a bit, but he's been wrong in the past.
Keep it Linux/coding related and 'PG rated'
Do not use code that he generates in anything important.
Do not run commands he gives you unless you completely understand what it will do.
This is a trial period and available to everyone
I don't mind Tux it's fun some times, but I'm with the Other Maine Dave on this oneI do not mind Tux, but the bot should be where it is or only respond when specifically invoked.
I wish there were a simple, reliable flag that people could invoke in their posts that says, "No Tuxbot response to this post, please!" Something like, "@NoTuxResponse" or whatever works to prevent TuxBot from quoting and replying when not desired. The feature is supposed to be here, but it does not appear to work.I do not mind Tux, but the bot should be where it is or only respond when specifically invoked.
But it doesn't work. You can see that TuxBot replied anyway.If you refer to the Member by their userid (eg @wendy-lebaron ) TuxBot will ignore the Post. For an example, see
@DavePM is starting threads in the Ask TuxBot sub-forum. He is asking good questions.-> There were threads where I did not post helpful information or "the answer" just to avoid the annoyance of a TuxBot quote and reply. In effect, TuxBot has lowered the quality of answers in some threads here. (Yes, I understand that TuxBot also answers many questions that would otherwise go unanswered.)
The powers that be on this site are working on it. We have to be patient.But it doesn't work. You can see that TuxBot replied anyway.
