No way.... This mod's still active

I had it working after a lot of effort. Training the ALICE script is a huge undertaking, and not really worth it for an active forum.
We did not write ALICE BOT, re-write that bot in order to do the things we want to do, is a lot of work.
Our bot (HAL9000) we want to do:
-answer and ask questions of chemistry
-answer and ask questions of mathematics
-insert news on particular topics
-create stories to entertain people
-to be a fan of a particular artist
for ALICE bot to do it, would be difficult, we had to wait an update, or someone who has done scripts for that.
The problem we found is that our BOT(HAL9000) also has over 50,000 phrases and patterns of sentences that should be recognized, and this caused overload on our server.
We had been undergoes for 1 year with another type of bot, a "bot moderator"
, this also has to recognize words, phrases and patterns of sentences, but like the HAL9000, also caused a server overload.
Nowadays, the "bot moderator" uses other techniques to check the post from users, it does not cause any problems on the server.
The same technique, we would use HAL9000, to do the things that we do not have problems on server load.
We do not stop the development of modbot.
