    Hello guys!
    I have a question to you. Why the bot is called Defoko? And why has the forum got a bot? Thanks!

    "Defo" for default, "ko" for the typical "子" ending of Japanese girls' names.

    It was given by NND video watchers. She was later given the proper "Utane Uta" (The sound of singing singer) to fit Crypton's convention, like most of the early voicebanks.

    Defoko is the default voicebank for UTAU and therefore the software's mascot of sorts, hence why the forum uses her for the default theme, and also why the bot is named after her. The bot mostly seems to be there to post advertisements and to post chat logs; I haven't really seen it do anything else.

    Not sure why there is a bot, but maybe it's called Defoko because I think the original default theme on the forum was Defoko, plus it's the main bot I believe, main default bot(?)

    Defoko (the bot) does automated task such as posting the chat logg, show advertizement in threads, and repost stuff and uppdates happening in the utau wiki 2.0. In the beta stage of the forum she was also used to test the showcase.
    As for why they used defoko as the name and character icon, it might be that she has become the mascot of UTAU, being the voice that it comes with. So it wouldn't be too unreasonable to use her name as a bot for a forum mainly dedicated for UTAU. This just just my guess though, for all I know they just wanted to call it something else than bot-chan.

    That's a question I wanted to ask too. Why are there so many bots (sometimes even more than the members) and what's their purpose?

    Maybe you could post a thread regarding it! What do you think?
