I had a few ideas for the bot, but they all required a noun wildcard.

The * wildcard will work for most occasions where a noun wildcard would be needed, as almost any other type of word is a pronoun, adjective, or verb.

It is also worth noting that this wildcard will work for more than one word; for example, the entry "How long until *?" could potentially be "How long until the world cup final?"

So long as everything before and after the asterisk is present, the message will still be recognised.

PS. @Razzor: sorry for shouting at you in my last post, I didn't consider that you could have
inadvertently missed the bit about the format being optional, and jumped to the conclusion that you were ignoring it just to be stubborn. Sorry!

I would help if I understood one bit of that format.

You programmer-folk are all beyond me.  :P2

Same dish for me, but with a hint of cannotusemyimagination, please.

No programming is involved. At all.  :huh:

FYI, Hanashino-tan is now available for beta testing on #Hanashino-tan_Chatbot on irc.esper.net! Any sentence she doesn't understand will be logged, and if I'm online at the same time, can be fixed immediately.

Just give her random sentences, like this:

The more errors you get, the better.

I tried talking to it, but nothing worked. I just got Q_Qs all over the place.
My only star: :hiddenstar:

Er...I seem to have left the "Grammar & Punctuation Nazi" option on.
You didn't end each sentence with a . or a ! or a ?
And some of the things you asked weren't programmed.
fixed now, probably.

EDIT: No it hasn't. Just remember to close questions with a ? and spell and capitalise correctly. This thing only recognises words in the dictionary, as they are spelt there.

EDIT: And here's a explanation of the error msgs:
ERROR 1: INPUT NOT RECOGNISED-Meaning, I haven't programmed this bit yet. Will be logged and fixed soon.
ERROR 2: NO PROGRAMMED RESPONSE FOR RECOGNISED INPUT-Caused my myself being a total idiot and forgetting to program what to actually say in response. Will trigger multiple facepalms and will be fixed shortly.
ERROR 3: STILL BUSY-Meaning you are posting messages faster than Hana can respond to them. Didn't your mother tell you not to interrupt?
ERROR L<x>: The Lacewing networking platform has gone kaplooie. Totally not my fault.
ERROR I<x>: The IRC    "
