Unknown inputs

On the page Unknown inputs you can add replies your inf is going to give, if it does not have a template to the guest response, i.e. if your inf does not know how to reply to a question.

In other words, these are the replies to the templates:

$ * – reply to an unknown input (without a question or an exclamation mark).
$ * ? – reply to an unknown question.
$ * ! – reply to an unknown exclamation.

You can add reply variations to such templates in the section Unknown inputs.

If you do not fill out Unknown inputs then your inf will reply with the phrases created by the project developers.

How to fill out “Unknown inputs”?

Enter a reply to the input in the relevant field. To add more replies click on the Add another reply. If you click the cross next to the reply, the reply will be deleted. To save your replies click Apply at the bottom of the topic page. Do not forget to save your replies!


The total length of all replies to one unknown input should not exceed 65,536 characters.

If you click Apply and the replies are not saved, it might mean either you have exceeded the possible total reply length (65,536 characters) or there is a programme error. Please, report this error to our customer support team.

You can highlight your replies in this section with the same tags <br>, <b>, <i>, <u> as you did in Suggested topics (see the description of the section Suggested topics for more details).

NOTE:
1. You can paste links to other websites in replies to Unknown inputs (see the description of section My templates for more details).
2. Inline dictionaries do not work in replies to Unknown inputs (see the description of the section My templates for more details). To add a new reply variation you should add a new line with the phrase, even if replies differ by one word.
3. Currently, variables, “if” command and anchors do not work in Unknown inputs (see the description of the section My templates for more details about variables and anchors).
4. The priority of your own templates created on the My templates page is higher than all the suggested ones. So, when a guest uses a phrase that the inf does not understand, and you have a relevant template in the section My templates, the inf will use this reply.
5. It is not enough to just fill out the Suggested topics and Unknown inputs to teach your inf. To make your inf more intelligent and more unique, you need to create your own templates in the section My templates. Do not forget to consider all possible mistakes and misprints a guest can make (see the description of the section My templates for more details).
6. You can switch off Suggested topics, Unknown inputs and all the suggested templates by creating the template $ * in My templates (see the description of the section My templates for more details).
