HyenaChitChat has a "bot" (short for robot) named Diaperbutt. This is NOT a person but instead a computer program created to be a knowledge repository. This "bot" captures "facts and comments" made while in chat and <i>can be a wonderful source of information and entertainment</i>. For example, I can never remember Kindmomma's website for her magnificent tye dye items and I just ask Diaperbutt and he gives me the web address.<br><br>
In the same manner that our "bot" retains helpful information it also retains the bad things too.<br><br>
With that in mind I would like to ask for you to vote on this poll (if you come into HyenaChitChat) to help determine the outcome of our "bot".<br><br>
I would also like to thank our regular chatting members and Troy (RikkisDH) for all of his time and effort with our chat and Diaperbutt.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

Diaperbutt must stay. Himmer is awesome :LOL<br>
So there may be a few bad things "remembered" once in a while, no one's perfect let alone a poor "bot". Imagine if himmer had feelers, himmer would be terribly upset by this...<br>
Himmer is full of fun facts and funny comments <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br><br>
Himmer= Him + Her made by a him so has some him qualities but is more her thanks to himmer's love Trish :LOL

DaiperButt must stay!!!!! Mind you, I was offended at first when DiaperButt kept saying I was lost when I would come into the chat room but I didn't know then that he was a bot. I thought it was someone just trying to be rude to me. LOL DiaperButt cracksme up now. I just think new chat members should be made aware that Butt is a bot.<br><br>

It's worth pointing out that "DiaperButt" was originally going to be "DiaperBot" but then I thought that the play on words was too good to pass up.<br><br>
Also, if there are any behavioural modifications (like the "go away" or "only speak when spoken to") functions that we're already considering or have done, this is a good time to bring it up.<br><br>
For the record, there have been some problems recently, but it was never my intention to cause anyone to be uncomfortable or to otherwise look on it as a "bad thing". I want this to be a "good thing" ... if it can.<br><br>

I voted for him to go away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/demon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="demon"> I was never too keen on him, and the stuff he comes up w/ randomly creeps me out. I know that nothing said in chat is "sacred" and you shouldn't say things you wouldn't want repeated, but certain things can be taken very wrong out of context when brought up by DB.<br><br>
Now I feel better about the revisions that he can only respond when spoken to, but I still don't like him all that much. I don't know... call me crazy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: I don't think it's all that funny myself. JMO

well, i don't see the point of him if he only responds when spoken to. he will then only remember info offered to him directly, you have to say diaperbutt first. like simon says!<br><br>
I am grateful to know what diaperbutt told me. I guess some people just can't handle themselves in a public chat.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
I would never say mean things in such a tight knit community, anyway, whether there was a special bot or not. It just isn't cool.<br><br>
I say keep him. If anything should be eliminated, its the mean spirted talk on chat.<br><br>

I voted for him to go. I've gotten to know some of the ladies who've been hanging out in the room late at night, and I've shared some things that I wouldn't want repeated -- personal things about me and my family, feelings about things. I think it's kind of creepy that he could repeat what I said out of context.<br><br>
Troy told us last night that Diaperbutt has more than 8,000 statements recorded. That's 8,000 opportunities for problems and hurt feelings, IMO.<br><br>
If he's kept, I think his memory needs to be heavily edited.

I probably shouldn't respond since I'm biased, but I think that DB should stay.<br><br>
I've been online since the time of BBSes and remember when people would log "private" chats that you would have with them, then turn around on you and publish the log on a public board. Humiliating to say the least... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
I look at chats and forums/boards as public whether they are listed as "public" or not, and would never say something negative about anyone if I wouldn't be comfortable saying it to the person's face... and since I tend to speak my mind, whether in public or private, I could care less if there's something that DB has "learned" that I said and repeats it to the person it was directed at...<br><br>
That said, I think that DB should stay... just because I look at him/her as more comic relief than anything else!

If diaperbutt goes, I go.<br><br>
Just kidding! But I do think DB is funny and enjoy getting himmer to say stuff about me!<br><br>
He can remember my URL and I sure can't.<br><br>

I like diaperbutt . . . well, once I learned to play with him it was even more fun. I believe he once called me a gourdbottom - now where did THAT come from?<br><br>
As far as lude comments made about others - well, if you make them . . . then you're responsible for them.<br><br>
As far as privacy issues - this IS the one thing I could understand being a dilemma . . . if DB put a weird twist on something (pulled it out of context) and made someone uncomfortable - yet, it wasn't entirely the 'tone' of the actual conversation that took place.<br><br>
Tabitha <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> to you momma . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I vote keep him and maybe take to private chats what one would like to remain private and watch for 'gossip' or targeted conversations you wouldn't want others hearing. After all, ANYONE CAN LOG ON and well, you all know what can happen with these forked tongues of ours! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/demon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="demon">

I like diaperbutt!! He must stay, we can all get along! WE CAN DO IT! <span style="font-size:xx-small;">(besides, he's the only one who calls me the Goddess of Goodness and Light)</span> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> Please don't take him away. He's a bit twisted, mentally challenged, socially deprived, wicked little demon bot, with a kind heart. It’s not his fault if he steps out of line every once in a while, he just doesn’t understand! Give the little fella a break....please. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"> DiaperButt.<br><br>
HOWEVER - I was REALLY sad to hear how hurt Tabitha was by something "repeated" and it wasn't the first time.<br><br>
I don't think DiaperButt needs a change :LOL - so punny<br><br>
I think some chat participants need a change!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Can we really not come together in the spirit of community in a chat room without saying not-nice things about other mamas? That's NOT the spirit of MDC. Let's be adults here and think about what we're saying - and more importantly, how we would feel if we went into chat one night and something was repeated that another mama said about us!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
