My bot payment is due in late October, and I don't even have the ability to cancel the automatic renewal.

We can cancel any payment you make to Delphi for the bot's IRC access. We have no access to anything you pay to Botcity. 

If you want to cancel your bot's IRC renewal, just let us know the name of the bot, and we'll take care of it.

At this point, we have no idea why Will isn't responding, It's possible he can't at the moment. Will has given a lot of years of service to Talk City and Delphi and the bot owners. I would hope that we can all give him the benefit of the doubt until we have a better idea of what has happened.

I agree, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for a while, but I'm nonetheless frustrated by the situation. The room bot does add a lot, otherwise I wouldn't have paid for it. I don't know if he has an assistant who can address issues in his absence, but that's a suggestion for the future. Also, I was wondering if anyone knows if there are there other vendors who provide bots that work in Delphi?

Thank you,

Marissa

I agree that we don't know, and I didn't mean to imply that any action be taken immediately.  I have no reason to doubt his integrity. However, at some point, whether or not there is any *fault* involved, people want to know what's going on, either from Delphi (and the responses indicate that you've tried to help) or perhaps from someone who knows him.  If he ran this by himself, and no one knows how to contact him, then perhaps there's little that can be done.  We all hope he is OK.

To be clear, I see Wishling logged in a couple of times since you first reported.  Is that you doing the login?

Don't know how many other bots are running, there haven't been more reports like this so far.

Hi Gunter, 

Yes, that was me logging in as Wishling, trying to see if that would work (it didn't). Also, pepsigal_43 mentioned earlier in this thread that she has been having bot problems as well. 

Thanks,
Marissa

ok - I think you logging in wouldn't help in any case, Will needs to do that to couple the bot with the script.

There are no other vendors that have been authorized by Delphi to provide bots. A few people have tried, but either couldn't comply with the rules, or they faded away. That's not to say that there isn't someone out there who does set up bots for friends, but no one else who's been authorized as a business.

Thank you and Gunter for continuing to help. I hope we can get this all figured out soon.

We have had the same issue in 40sPlus - with our bot named Nikki_Parker.  She has not been working for several weeks (maybe a month now), even while her membership has been paid up through sometime in November, 2017.  This has been frustrating, especially since I have heard that bots in other rooms are functioning (I haven't verified this but have been told this by others).  The bots do add a lot to the chatting experience.  Hoping there is some resolution out there.
