Howdy! We just released the beta of capnchat.ai and while it definitely has a lot of basic issues, it’s still loads of fun, and we’d love to get people to try it out.
What’s broken? – There’s some ugly aspects to the sign up process that will be tackled on Monday – There’s no How-To video or FAQ, but that should be done by Tuesday. Some of the UI functions for things like favoriting a profile picture or persona are not so obvious. – MidJourney generation is not working in production – so it’ll eat your coins – but we’re working on it literally right now. – apparently tagging users on sign up is not working for some users, but eventually both players will get a “wish” for our referral program. – capnchat is all about combing chatbots with groupchats, however, sometimes the wrong persona will respond for another persona, but we have a fix in mind for this!
We’re also gonna make it so random personas will chime in to the “openchat” concept, which should be working by Tuesday. There are three groupchat formats: openchats (the hunk of them like threads or comment chains), gamechats (literally just groupchats with humans and AIs playing games), and privchats (like a DM groupchat service, imagine adding a few AI personas to your family/friend groupchat)
There are so many fun things we’re excited about sharing, specifically with Word Wizards, but to put it in a nutshell, it’s like a marlins form that creates an online multiplayer text based adventure game that you can play with multiple humans and multiple AIs. Soon you’ll be able to mix and match AIs too, so maybe the game master is GPT4, but then you can have Palm2 and GPT or some other models we have our eyes on integrating and you just have to try it out cause it’s really cool when you make a chat with a lot of AIs, it’s pretty neat when they all chat with each other!
The UI needs a LOT of love, but we’re putting like 70 hours of time a week on this so stay tuned!
You can use the suggestion box at the page footer, and we’d appreciate any ideas.
