in reply to It's not human!

Nifty idea! Perhaps the help mechanism could be a little more well-formatted and complete than a simple chatterbox conversation. All too often, we see poorly-placed posts or repeated posts. If we had some box where we could type in "How do get my controlling terminal?" the bot might respond with a direct link to the question asked in Q&A or SOPW, Super Search results or it may prompt for further information to narrow the topic. I doubt that the chatterbox is even big enough to hold any GOOD and COMPLETE responses. Especially for new folks here, it might be nice to have a flashing neon sign (OK, just make it more obvious) with "Talk with the PMbot!" where you can then type in a question. Since newbies don't seem to like reading the site documentation either, it might be relevant to link that in there, too. The question "When do I get to vote?" could bring up the Voting/Xp explanations pages. In short, I agree that that would be a great and useful feature, but perhaps in a better place than the chatterbox.
