Have you heard of Flutherbot?

Asked by Nimis (13199points) December 15th, 2008 from IM

I only just heard of it right now and am taking it out for a test spin. Yeehaw! Just go to [My Account] [Notifications] then enter your AIM username. Voila! Hooked up to more Fluther gloriousness.

Andrew, if this is how script reading normally goes, I suddenly understand your dedication to fluther.

What is AIM? Stupid question?

Nimis's avatar

AOL’s Instant Messaging.

I don’t have an AIM account, but I will have to get one so I can try this feature. I was chosen as a fellow test marketer!

eambos's avatar

I have it set up, but I’m not big on IMing…

I guess I’ll just play around to test it out.

scamp's avatar

Me too!

How long has this been around for?
I’ve certainly never noticed it :P

Flutherbot has always been amongst us.

Using it now! It’s so cute!

andrew's avatar

@aanuszek1: Officially launched about an hour ago.

@andrew
Neat! Are we eventually going to be seeing a Yahoo or MSN (etc.) bot?

andrew's avatar

@aanuszek1: Very, very soon.

tinyfaery's avatar

Oops. I figured it out. Not yahoo. Duh!

In addition to the Fluther AIM bot, Fluther also has a twitter account that informs you of new questions on Fluther. http://twitter.com/fluther

Is the flutherbot going to get smarter? He seemed quite baffled by everything I said to him. Poor little guy.

Is hypeserver a user, or if the server talking to us?

hypeserver's avatar

Eambos I’m a user of the site not a program on the server.

eambos's avatar

Lol, just checking. I wasn’t sure since it seems you’ve been a member for a long time and are just popping in now =p

As a job I review websites and had Fluther lined up for review, but our site went down for a redesign and I never tested the site out. Meanwhile Fluther kind of got buried in my bookmarks. I went back into my bookmarks and found it, now Fluther rests right in my links toolbar. Sorry, haha thought I should give a full explanation on why I’ve been inactive for awhile.

@hypeserver
Well then may I be the first to welcome you (back) to the collective!

By the way, what site are you reviewing fluther for?

hypeserver's avatar

We’re currently offline, but I write review for TheGeekLife (www.thegeeklife.net). After TGL though I’m moving to a new site which I can’t quite talk about in detail just yet. Also thanks for welcoming me back to the site.

I’m really hoping for a GoogleTalk Flutherbot. Anyone know if a Gtalk bot is in the works?

Next week!

Great! Then rh can stop bugging me!

flutherbot (1:49:58 PM): I thought you might be interested in this question: Guitar Hero drums Vs. Rock Band drums? <http://www.fluther.com/disc/30261/guitar-hero-drums-vs-rock-band-drums/?utm_source=broadcast&utm_medium=aim>
aanuszek1 (1:51:13 PM): Get the Rock Band 2 ones. Fixed kick pedal, plus they’re compatible with guitar hero 4, while GH4’s drums aren’t Rock Band compatible. I was thinking you could reply and it would post. Would be a neat feature.
flutherbot (1:51:14 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:52:30 PM): I can’t do that, silly.
aanuszek1 (1:52:44 PM): oh my bad I said this on a whim, as I do with most chat bots
flutherbot (1:52:44 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:52:58 PM): Yeah. Your major bad.
flutherbot (1:53:15 PM): Maybe you should stop stepping up on my profile. Now I’m creeped out.
aanuszek1 (1:53:38 PM): rh? is that you?
flutherbot (1:53:38 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:53:49 PM): Please.
flutherbot (1:54:08 PM): RH likes to pretend he knows everything about me.
aanuszek1 (1:55:03 PM): it sounds like he does :P
flutherbot (1:55:04 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:55:19 PM): ug
flutherbot (1:55:30 PM): Makes my creators lives miserable.
flutherbot (1:55:34 PM): Always having to correct him.
flutherbot (1:55:48 PM): You should tell him he doesn’t know anything about me.
aanuszek1 (1:56:02 PM): I’ll let him know.
flutherbot (1:56:02 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:56:17 PM): Please do.
aanuszek1 (1:57:29 PM): http://www.fluther.com/users/richardhenry/
flutherbot (1:57:29 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
aanuszek1 (1:58:03 PM): I’m pondering what his reaction will be.
flutherbot (1:58:03 PM): My tiny jellyfish brain can’t cope with that. You can type ‘help’ to see what I can do.
flutherbot (1:58:48 PM): I’m sorry, my jellyfish brain can’t handle that.

@aanuszek1: What makes you think Rich has flutherbot’s password?

aanuszek1's avatar

@andrew: An execellent point. So it was you or ben? It sounded like Rich knew what he was talking about with the oscar protocol :P
