You haven't answered or gave any response to all these comments:
By the way, if you want help you really should indent your code. I understand that getting used to it would be hard as asperger (from experience) but No one wants to help because it's not intended and they can't read it x.x.

You should make the submit button also work with Enter like when searching Google. Having to click it with the mouse when submitting text gets a bit tedious.

I don't want to hurt you or be rude, but your Virtual Friend project is not ever getting anywhere near being useful as the current path that you are taking is not going to work. It does not look very visually appealing yet, but I guess that's subject to come later. Also I actually had to dissect the code just to know what I could ask him/her as this was not obvious at all when looking at the site itself.
With that I don't want to say that your project is bad or that you shouldn't keep working on it, as it is something that makes you have fun doing. But if you want this project not to be just for you, then you should really consider some drastic changes.
Also if you want to get some inspiration, check out CleverBot. You can actually somewhat talk to it and often get good responses. Keep the work up, but I'd really suggest, starting from scratch. An if based conversation that just comares the input to all phrases preprogrammed is not going to work. You need to come up with some algorithm to estimate what the user is actually saying.

Edit: I mean look, I just talked to CleverBot again and it makes all sense and he certainly understood me: http://www.cleverbot.com/conv/201511241850/VWO03928850_Hello

It would probably help to suggest what in particular needs change, though. From what I could gather, some stuff is not proper AI but rather command-based stuff, so that is something that would need changes, but I didn't have much time to check the code for string of text and stuff besides the RSS feed stuff.

Does this release also includes some of the other suggestions quoted above? I am also curious about  if it will reply to stuff now.

A nice feature would be logs, so we can copy/paste convos.

Yes. The enter key now works!

I want it to act closely to a human being as possible. I'm probably, in a later release, going to allow the Virtual friend to share what you say to it, just like regular human beings can do.

I'm also planning a feature that you can speak to the Virtual friend and, at some point, get it to understand different tones of voice.

I think you should focus on text-based communications for now. Make it so it has an artificial intelligence so that it can function somewhat normally (eg Nikkybot style)

Virtual friend 0.6.0 is released. It can now recognize your name when you type what your name is in a full sentence and allow you to select multiple interests (although it doesn't make any use of it yet (maybe 0.7.0)).


You can download 0.6.0 at: https://github.com/EphraimB/Virtual-Friend/releases/tag/0.6.0


or

Can it generate some sentences like Nikkybot or is everything pre-made/based on news feeds?
