To get started simply type your answer to "and what would you like to have happen?" in the text box and press the blue tick button to the right, or press the enter key on your keyboard.
Once you have answered a question, you will be asked to construct the next question in the chain. To do so, click the teal buttons that appear in the "Question Designer" panel. Once a teal button turns blue, you have reached the end of that chain. Clicking a blue button in the "Question Designer" panel will complete the question and the site will then expect an answer from you again.
If you get part way through constructing a question piece by piece and want to start again, press the undo button which is the right-most button at the top right of the question designer panel.
If you'd prefer to generate a fully formed question at random rather than construct a question piece by piece you can click the "random" button, which is the middle button on the top right of the question designer panel. Right click this button to toggle the random question lock. Doing so will skip the question design stage all together and immediately generate a random question whenever you complete an answer. Right click on the button again to disengage the lock.
Phrases and metaphors which feel important to you can be stored in memory and used later when constructing questions.
Items can be added to memory by typing them inside square brackets. For example: "I want to [go to the moon]". Here, the phrase "go to the moon" will be added to memory.
There is a special @ tag for proper nouns (names etc.). This can improve some questions. For example, "@[Jerry Springer] wants to [go to the moon]". Here, "Jerry Springer" will be tagged as a name in memory, and "go to the moon" will simply be added to memory as a normal phrase.
To remove a stored phrase from memory, simply click on it in the memory panel.
You can add your own questions by clicking the icon that looks like a speech bubble with a plus symbol in it.
When adding your own questions you can create spaces for user input by typing "$()" (without the quotation marks). For example: "what type of $(thing) is that?" Here "$(thing)" will be replaced by any item that is currently stored in memory. If nothing is stored in memory, "$(thing)" gets will be replaced by the text inside the brackets, i.e. "thing".
You can specify that a user's input into your question must be a person or other named entity by using "@()" instead (without the quotation marks). For example: "what would @(you) like to have happen?". Here, "@(you)" will be replace by any name that is currently in memory. If there are no names in memory, "@(you)" will be replaced by the text inside the brackets, i.e. "you".
