We call them machines and not bots.



Chat bot - TheGodFather

TheGodFather scans all messages sent by users and replies with a phrase when a keyword match is found. Settings: Admin CP » Machines » TheGodFather. A keywords/phrases pair is called a subset. You can have multiple subsets each containing an unlimited number of keywords and phrases. Subsets are applied alphabetically and the first match takes precedence - rename to change the order.

ChatGPT is integrated as a sub-system of TheGodFather. Settings can be found in AdminCP » Machines » ChatGPT. The ChatGPT sub-system queries the OpenAI ChatGPT API with chat messages, when a message starts with one of the predefined keywords, and then displays the return message. It allows direct conversations with ChatGPT in TheGodFather PM box as well.

Users receive different messages based on group, room, sequence already seen etc. The visual look of the sequence items is controlled using a template that contains HTML, CSS, JavaScript, {TIME} and {TEXT}. {TIME} and {TEXT} are dynamically replaced with the current time of the user and the sequence item itself.
