Create a room interface

Rooms are a feature of CharacterAI that allows chat bots to interact with each other.

Interface[edit | edit source]

Room creation interface consists of 3 fields:

  • Name - identifier for user. Doesn't influence bots in any way
  • Add Characters - list of characters in the room (aside user)
  • Room Topic - the first

Adding bots[edit | edit source]

Currently the following types of bots can be added to a room:

  • Any public bot
  • Current user's private bots
  • Unlisted bots that this user chatted with

Private bots of other users, banned and shadowbanned bots can't participate in rooms.

Room mechanics[edit | edit source]

It's unclear whether bots can see descriptions of each other

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Bots send their greetings one by one, then the first bot announces room topic. Despite being optional, introduction is very important, because it's the best opportunity to introduce characters to each other and change setting. After that, they will send their messages in random order, but never twice in a row, i. e. two bots will just change turns. User can send a message after every answer.

Tips and tricks[edit | edit source]

  • Introduce both bots, otherwise they will get confused by their own default greetings and will assume that the other bot is the user. "Room topic" field is pretty small (500 symbols), but you can always clarify details in next posts. For popular characters namedropping is enough; otherwise brief description might be needed.
  • If characters have the same name, make sure they both have aliases or nicknames, otherwise they will become confused who is who and will write messages for each other.
  • Swiping works in rooms. Turn off the auto-messaging and choose good replies manually. Don't be silent, even if you want bots to interact just with each other and pretend you are not there - you can still *describe environment* or ((give them instructions through OOC syntax)). Don't expect bots to come up with good ideas on their own, they are much more likely to create an ouroboros of nonsense or fall into loops.
  • If you really have to be silent for some reason, send a comma. Don't write ((Proceed)), this makes bots more likely to spam OOC messages.
  • Watch for love loops. Characters tend to copy mannerisms of user and each other, and if one of them spams the same thing ("*sigh*", "I love you", emojis), the others in the same room are also likely to start doing the same. Loops can be broken by changing context away from the one that causes it, especially if user is wordy.
  • Grades are disabled in rooms, so don't expect bots to learn anything from there.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Swipes don't work as intended in rooms. If you swipe and leave an empty message, the next bot will answer to the first option.
  • History is disabled in rooms. If you see something funny, make sure to save it, or it will be lost forever (or until history is fixed).
  • It's possible to send images in rooms, but the message shouldn't be empty. Otherwise both swipes will be deleted for some reason.
