    owlfred appears to be an automated response that tells you to hold on while it posts "somebody asked a question" in the chat bax... as if we were all in the chat box lol

    tomservo was one attempt they made at trying to get qs answered but it seemed to intimidate people away... "Hey you! you seem smart enough to answer a question...try it!" Nothing like having anxiety from a bot lol

    Hehe. Owlfred is actually a real user! He's our mascot! He also does the auto-response though. We'll be tweaking how we present that over the next week or so so that it's not actually an auto-response. The purpose is two-fold -- to let you know that there are people coming, and to let you know about the `good answer' button. I'm still not sure it's doing those successfully :p
