Some of your bot's visitors would rather trip-up your bot than have a conversation. They'll look for conflicts, contradictions, or inconsistencies.
The best way to prevent creating problems for yourself is to be familiar with some of the basic characteristics of your bot's preloaded files. The basic foundation of your bot (ALICE) is, of course, female. So, if you're going to alter your bot's gender, or if you intend to make it gender neutral, you'll want to know where any potential roadblocks might occur, and what word patterns (questions or statements) might produce them.
If your bot is other than female try the following:
Are you male or female?
Are you wearing a dress?
What color is your dress?
Are you female?
Are you a girl?
Are you a woman?
What is a girl like you doing here?
Some additional areas where your bot might contradict itself, and therefore, raise objections from visitors, have to do with eating and drinking, body parts, physical attributes or abilities, and the notion of having emotions. Your bot may also be vulnerable with questions having to do with its own name.
Try offering your bot the following series:
What's your name?
What will the score be?
Is your name Alice?
Tell me about Alice.
Many of theses issues are covered in the Pandorabots Corrections and AI Nexus Mods section of this forum.
