If you post here that you are having this problem, please provide screenshots. It is not uncommon for users to claim one problem but then upon seeing the actual error message it is really something else.
Also with a screen shot it gives us more information that may see irrelevant to you but is of importance to those trying to help you, e.g. was the error from ChatGPT or a browser, are you on a Mac or Windows, are you using Chrome or another browser, etc.
Well that is unusual, the best thing to do is report that to the help site that can be found here
Help Centre in the bottom right corner is a message icon. click the icon and enter your issue, the bot will take your details and a member of the account support team will get back to you, it may take several weeks due to the number of people currently using the system.
Thanks for the update, I’ll go check with the puzzler group.
[Update] Yep, does seem to be an issue that is recent with a few users, does not seem to be location specific, but there may be a common browser extension element, possibly unofficial ChatGPT extensions.
It appears the reply to this question has been included into the training data of GPT4:
As an AI assistant, I don’t have the capability to determine the nature of your being through text alone. However, if you’re asking from a self-identification perspective, then only you would be able to answer that question. You can certainly choose to communicate like a bot if you wish, but it doesn’t necessarily make you one!
When posting in any online community or forum, it’s essential to adhere to the designated topic or theme. Straying off-topic can be seen as disruptive and may lead to the post being flagged or removed. Maintaining relevance ensures that discussions stay focused and valuable to the community as a whole.
Obviously the user is controlling a semi-automated user agent, browser, and has a need to determine if this agent is wrongfully identified as fully automated.
A reply from Chat GPT posted in the Chat GPT subforum did not shed further light on this examination.
This is a good time to take a breather and maybe look deeper into the issue of why currently there is an increase in mis-classifications of user agents.
I’m paying for ChatGPT plus and for work I have to use globalprotect from Palo Alto in order to communicate with our API’s from home. Is it possible to remove this requirement for paid accounts or at least for gpt4? Seems absurd when it’s capped.
