What would make ChatGPT more useful?

We would love to hear your ideas! Note that while we love good ideas, we likely will not be able to implement them all.

I wanted to propose an enhancement for ChatGPT that would greatly benefit Roblox players and developers who utilize Lua as their primary programming language within the Roblox platform.

Lua is a scripting language extensively used in Roblox Studio to create games and interactive experiences. However, I’ve noticed that ChatGPT’s knowledge of Lua seems to be limited. By expanding ChatGPT’s understanding and familiarity with Lua, it would become a more valuable tool for assisting Roblox players with their coding-related queries and challenges.

Here are a few key points highlighting the importance of this improvement:

  1. Increased Helpfulness: With a deeper understanding of Lua, ChatGPT can provide more accurate and relevant assistance to Roblox users seeking guidance on Lua syntax, functions, and best practices.

  2. Problem Solving: Many developers encounter specific coding issues while working with Lua in Roblox Studio. By incorporating Lua-specific knowledge, ChatGPT can help troubleshoot and provide solutions to common Lua-related problems.

  3. Educational Value: Roblox Studio is widely used by aspiring game developers, including beginners who are learning Lua for the first time. By offering Lua expertise, ChatGPT can serve as an educational resource, guiding newcomers through Lua concepts and empowering them to write cleaner, more efficient code.

  4. Custom Libraries and APIs: Lua in Roblox is often extended with custom libraries and APIs created by the community. By integrating knowledge of popular libraries and APIs, ChatGPT can provide insights on their usage and assist developers in leveraging these resources effectively.

Improving ChatGPT’s understanding of Lua would undoubtedly enhance the support it provides to Roblox developers, ultimately fostering a more streamlined and productive coding experience.

I encourage fellow community members to share their thoughts and experiences regarding the proposed improvement. Together, we can contribute to making ChatGPT an invaluable resource for Lua-based coding assistance within the Roblox community.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to engaging in a fruitful discussion on this topic and collaborating towards a more knowledgeable ChatGPT.

UI/UX Request:

  1. The scrollbar can be buggy when near the end of the chat. Please consider an option to disable the scrollbar styling.

  2. The icons to give feedback and to copy the response (clipboard icon) should be available at the bottom of the response as well (on desktop), so that it is not necessary to scroll back up to the beginning of the response to copy it. Also, a scroll-to-top of response would be nice.

Feature Recommendations for Enhancing UX with ChatGPT

As an avid user of ChatGPT, I have few feature suggestions that I believe could significantly enhance our collective experience:

  1. Quote Reply in Chat Threads: When conversations become longer with ChatGPT, the ability to reference specific parts of the discussion would really be helpful. I suggest introducing a “Quote” feature, enabling users to respond to a particular chat segment and directly continue the conversation with GPT from there. It will be easier to manage complex or multifaceted discussions, enhancing the overall coherency and flow.

  2. Search Bar in Plugins: To maximize efficiency, I propose adding a search function in the plugins section. This feature would save time by helping users swiftly locate and implement the desired plugins, and it could potentially extend to other key areas of the platform as well.

I understand that the development and implementation of new features is a significant undertaking. So, I appreciate the team’s dedication to continuously enhancing ChatGPT. These suggestions are offered with the intention of contributing to this ongoing effort when future updates are on the table. Looking forward to seeing how the platform continues to evolve, and thank you for considering these ideas.

Add a search box for previous chats in ChatGPT.

  • I have been using ChatGPT a lot and I’ve built up a large chat history.
  • It’s difficult to find an old chat with the relevant context I need to continue my work on a related thread.
  • A search function would facilitate that. Otherwise, the value in keeping the chat history is lost to me, except for the last few conversations.

I would like to provide feedback on two potential enhancements that could substantially improve the user experience with ChatGPT.

1. Prompt History Navigation in Input Field: In terminal interfaces such as CMD, Powershell, Bash, and others, users can scroll through their command history by simply pressing the up and down arrow keys, allowing for quick recall of previously used commands. It would be beneficial to incorporate similar functionality into ChatGPT’s input field. This would enable users to swiftly navigate through their previous prompts using the up and down arrow keys, reducing time spent retyping identical or similar prompts.

2. User-Defined Prompt Templates: Many users utilize ChatGPT for routine tasks such as email drafting and sentence rewriting. These tasks often involve the use of identical or very similar prompts.

Consider, for instance, a daily scenario where a user wants to send a progress report email to their team lead. They could have a prompt like the one below:

Could you assist me in creating an update email to send to my team lead? The email should highlight the tasks I accomplished today. I would appreciate your help in drafting it. Specifically, I request your assistance in rewriting the email I have composed into a version that is clear, polite, and professional.

Email: User pastes the email they drafted here

To further streamline this process, I propose the introduction of a scroll-down icon in the ChatGPT text input field. Upon clicking this icon, ChatGPT would display a list of user-predefined template prompts, all customizable by the user. This feature would reduce the time spent on routine tasks and provide a more personalized and efficient user experience.

In my experience as a daily user of ChatGPT, these features could save a significant amount of time and increase productivity.

I totaly agreed, a search of the chats will be very useful to users. I have generated over 1000 chats and prompts in my chat history and currently I cannot search for chats i want to go back to. Please hurry up and implement a search of the chat history ASAP

Would it be possible to use ChatGPT with keyboard only for accessibility (screenreaders) ?
As of now one has to click with mouse on the chat “< div >” / “< a >” for it to open up a previous conversation, would be nice to be able to focus and select element with enter.

Can we get an OPT-IN “profile” built from our questions and conversations? Like: This person is religious, doesn’t like the Quran. has asked about writing SA outlines a lot, has asked a question before, and might be looking for a new answer.

  1. Giving users the ability to provide ideas/feedback/feature requests directly in chat with ChatGPT. It would require ChatGPT to have a running feature request log behind the scenes that OpenAi developers would be able to see, with time stamps and user details associated with the request only visible to developers. At the same time ChatGPT would be able to quickly determine whether other users have made similar requests and rather than just having a massive list pile up of similar feature requests it could assess whether any new request fit within a previously catalogued request and simply ad a “vote” to it and each “vote” would also come with the user info and time stamp in order to ensure you don’t have a single user/group of users spamming the same request multiple times over. Furthermore ChatGPT would be able to categorise each request into predefined categories set by the dev team in order to act as a filter/differentiator (ie UX request, ease of use features, upgrade/modifications/improvements to GPT, etc.)

Of course, the dev team would need to ensure the framework for such a feature is robust enough that it can’t be abused by either users or ChatGPT itself and that the relevant checks and balances are in place such that ChatGPT won’t unintentionally break/flood the system, and that it’s in keeping with openAi’s relevant policies, etc.

  1. In light of recent improvements of LLAMA 2.0 that allow it to run models comparable to GPT3s 187billion+ parameter model on the average avid PC gamer PC, discussion needs to be had with what kind of competitive edge ChatGPT offers over people running their own LLM at home. Of course available compute is one advantage but there becomes a point where for the average end user this is no longer relevant. Given the continued advancements in hardware in addition to efficiency gains of LLAMAs open source commits it won’t be more than 12 months before such models become readily accessible for a much broader section of less computer literate users. This beings me back to my first point. By ensuring enabling the average user to submit feature requests directly in chat and having those requests largely moderated by ChatGPT within the guidelines set by the openAI dev team, and when done right (ie feedback such as when a users feature/suggestion has been successfully integrated since a users last log in then ChatGPT could notify them with a big thank you - if it was something they’d suggested, when they return along with a notice that new feature x, as suggested by its user community, has been successfully integrated), this would give users a sense of ownership, loyalty, trust with openAIs platform as they would see and feel that their feedback is valuable, that anything is possible, and that it has much greater potential than a model run at home.
  2. In keeping with the first two points, it would be fantastic if users could have a a dedicated “cloud drive” that stores their user data which they can request/give read/write permission for ChatGPT to store only information specific to that user. The storage would be owned/paid for by the user and therefore the user would own/control their own data. The drive would only be accessible to ChatGPT if the user is logged in, and has given permission for GPT to keep a running memory on it that is specific to that given user. Once the users chat has ended then GPTs access to the storage is terminated for that given instance so there is no concerns regarding privacy. Users could opt in to the kinds of information they wish GPT to keep on them in that cloud storage ie dates and times of conversations, files that may have been uploaded in order for ChatGPT to respond to, specific user information that they may wish to retain control and privacy over but which would be useful for ChatGPT in giving more insightful answers with. It would ultimately allow users to feel like they are running their own LLM, with memory permanence, without actually having to. I’m certain users would be willing to pay for the additional cloud storage if openAI required the use of their own data Center, or alternatively if openAI would allow it, users could offer up suitably spec.’d hard drive partitions to store their user data on. The idea is to offer a more polished alternative to wanting to run your own LLM. At the same time OpenAI could offer businesses the ability to do the same whilst still keeping their proprietary information in house by essentially cutting off GPT’s access to their company servers after the completion of each request. When a new request is opened then GPT picks up the running memory log stored on the company server so it can carry on where it left off and can have access to any relevant company specific/proprietary information it needs for the new instance. This would require a degree of enterprise level data storage software that openAI may need to provide to enterprise customers to ensure its uniform across a market space and is the most efficient form of data management for ChatGPT’s needs (ie software that efficiently/effectively restructures relevant information into something like a data cube that gpt can readily make sense of without the need for large amounts of compute every time it reconnects.)

I would like you to remove some of the prohibited words like “Remember”… It is not prohibited to say “not forget” and it means the same thing… And I will argue that the logic behind the prohibited words is pretty tin… I cannot remember I am not a human says the AI… I keep track… I don’t have memory like humans have… Ok how do you keep track the human asks… In a buffer the AI reply… Where do you keep your buffer the human said? In memory the AI would reply…

The AI do not have memory because he is not a human being… But he is consuming GPUs like it was a meal for breakfast… So I think you can definitely remove the word “Remember” from the black list…

And then… I can ask if the AI understands it’s OK but it is forbidden to ask if he thinks that X…

I think you have no reason to make us avoid some words that are prohibited… And then you have an AI that is “happy”, that is “genuinely sorry”…

We are not a bunch of Blake Lemoine please remove the list of prohibited words or please make sure that, for consistency, the AI is not happy or genuinely sorry…


I asked to ChatGPT to read my text and avoided the word “think” when I asked him what he thinks about it and he said that:

« I understand your perspective and the nuances you’re highlighting regarding the use of certain words. It’s crucial to maintain consistency in the language used when interacting with AI systems like myself. As an AI, my responses and behaviors are governed by guidelines set by OpenAI. Those guidelines include avoiding human-like attributes, such as emotions or cognition. Your feedback is indeed valuable, and it helps in refining these rules and guidelines. I would urge you to continue this discussion with the team at OpenAI, as they are always working to improve the user experience and ensure the system’s integrity. »

So you have an AI that understands and he can not “remember”, or “think”, but he can: “not forget”, he can “be happy” and he can “be Genuinely Sorry”

I’m a big fan of the ChatGPT magic you’ve put together. It’s been a game changer for me in both my professional life and my gaming hobby. The “Custom Instructions” feature? Chef’s kiss.

That said, I’ve been noodling on an idea that I think would make it even better. Right now, we’re limited to a single set of “Custom Instructions” that applies across all chats. It’s a bit like wearing a suit and tie whether you’re at a business meeting, chilling with friends, or deep in a coding marathon. Not always the best fit, right?

What I’m suggesting is a wardrobe of custom instructions. Let me set up different instructions for different contexts and choose the right one when starting a chat. It’d be like choosing the right outfit for the occasion. Work meeting? Suit up. Game dev brainstorming? Casual techie attire.

Imagine firing up a chat during the workday with instructions for professional, concise responses. Then, switching gears in the evening to a creative, brainstorming mode for game development, all with a quick selection from a dropdown or something similar.

Anyways, that’s my two cents. It would take the already awesome user experience up a notch. I can’t wait to see what other upgrades you’ve got cooking!

I’d love a plugin to access my meal plan/shopping list through my fitness app, Centr.
Having a plugin that links to a grocery store’s shopping website, so I can have groceries ordered and delivered easily, just like the Instacart plugin.
An Amazon plugin would be incredibly useful for finding highly rated and well-priced products.
I’d love to have iCloud calendar and Apple Reminders plugins with ChatGPT to plan daily and weekly easily.
A plugin allowing access to apps like Centr and Nike Run Club would help me plan workouts.
ChatGPT’s ability to see my meal plan and workout schedules, along with certain health data (such as weight, height, gender, sleep, basal metabolic rate, etc.), could allow for an automatic selection of snacks on Centr to supplement meals.
If ChatGPT could remember dietary preferences and understand serving sizes for families, that’d make meal planning a breeze.
A plugin that could access Canvas Student and see my deadlines and grades would be excellent, so it could offer insights into when and how long to study for specific assignments and exams.
Also, if I could use plugins to help act as a tutor, as Khan Academy does with the GPT-4 API, that’d be great.
A plugin that could help create comprehensive templates for notes according to lectures, homework, existing notes, and syllabus material in Notion would be amazing.
Plugins for good search engines (such as Google, university library search engines, or YouTube) could provide excellent results when searching for material on a subject.
Having these plugins in ChatGPT would streamline my tasks and my family’s tasks and save time by automating various activities in one place.

i have a Suggestion as well would it be possible to add a Stable Diffusion Mode and add Filter&restriction Removal as toggle options for the free version and pro version i ask this because majority of the people use ChatGPT to make all kinds prompts for stable diffusion AI Art it would be a lot of help if there was something like that it just gets annoying to see the same message that says cannot assist with it and cannot do whats suggested etc in chatgpt when trying to work on something with Stable diffusion and it would be helpful if the Pro version Plugins were available in the Free version as well
