@discobot Do you pass the Turing test?

Discobot is currently trying to come up with a super-witty and cool reply, but before he can post it, he’ll get wrapped up in a side-gig and forget about it for a few days, and then it will just feel AWKWARD, so he’ll fret about it for a couple years and hope you’ve forgotten the question.

So yes. He passes the Turing test.

Yes. He saw the Turing test, said pass. QED

If I tell Discobot to block all orders from Skynet, will that be good or bad for us?

Question: Should new members search for a thread subject before starting a new topic?

Answer: Absolutely! There are already a treasure trove of threads that dive deep into many a topic. Instead of starting from scratch, read what’s been posted previously, and reawaken the thread to keep it going and all in one convenient location! Huzzah!

I regret that I have but one like to give to that post.

Yes, please! There are tons of great threads that have lost steam. I’m particularly sad about the pets and my (admittedly dumb) D&D thread. If you wake up an older thread you will likely get replies from the folks who started it in the first place and light it back up. This is a wonderful thing.

I keep finding I’ve thrown the wrong term in search to locate previous threads on the topic :pensive:

Am grateful when the mods point out duplications.

I agree that can be an issue and one I’m guilty of myself. I’d recommend trying to search for a few different terms before starting a new thread. There are still many topics that haven’t been explored yet.

Making mistakes is how we learn, repeating mistakes is how we get banned :grin:

Smart people like us make mistakes everyday, but we soon learn from them. Only people with a dark bronze heart repeat the mistakes, and then they get banned.

I searched the Forum and Help and didn’t find my answer, but someone else (Vader) magically had a link handy. So here’s how to report closed captioning issues or corrections. It’s super-annoying that you have to repeatedly fill out the same info over and over if you have a big list, but at least it exists, eh?
