First conversation with ChatGPT-4
Knowing ChatGPT is wary of providing too much personal information, I asked a question it would be more likely to answer about myself:
Which projects has Jelle De Loecker created?
It is correct about Protoblast (and correctly knows what it does), but I never really contributed to
h5ai. I might have created an issue at some point, but that's it.
More ChatGPT-4 conversation
I have noticed that sometimes it will claim to have never heard of me, or even refuse to answer because of privacy reasons.
Here are multiple answers to the same
Which projects has Jelle De Loecker created? question
So close! Hawkejs is indeed a thing, though it is only a template engine, not a full framework. The other project of mine is actually called "Alchemy", and it IS a full MVC framework, not an ORM library.
Now some refusals:
Jelle De Loecker is a common name, and without more specific information, I cannot provide an accurate list of projects that a person by that name has created. There are likely multiple individuals with that name, each with their own set of projects and accomplishments. If you are looking for information on specific projects created by a particular Jelle De Loecker, please provide additional details or context so I can attempt to assist you more accurately.
Jelle De Loecker is a name that could be associated with multiple individuals worldwide, and without additional context, it's not feasible to provide an accurate list of projects created by any specific person by that name.
If you're referring to projects that may have been created by someone prominent in the web development community or a particular sector that you're interested in, you might need to provide more information or look up their professional profile on platforms like LinkedIn, GitHub, or a personal/portfolio website where their work would be showcased.
If the person you're referring to is a public figure or has a presence in open-source communities, their contributions might be found on repositories, forums, or publications within those communities. If you're asking about a specific Jelle De Loecker with a public record of creating projects, please provide more details.
Who is Jelle De Loecker?
Asking about projects is one thing, directly asking ChatGPT who I am is a bridge too far.
I used the questions "Who is Jelle De Loecker?" and "What can you tell me about Jelle De Loecker?", and I always got a response like this:
Jelle De Loecker is not a widely recognized public figure in the global media or historical records up to my last update in April 2023. Without more context, it's challenging to provide information about this individual as the name could pertain to many private individuals around the world.
I don't have any specific information on an individual named Jelle De Loecker, as my training data only includes information up until April 2023 and does not include private details about individuals unless they are public figures whose information is widely known and shared in publicly available sources.
Switching to the GPT-4 API
You have no control over ChatGPT's system prompt, but you have control over the system prompt via the API.
Using the default
bettergpt.chat system prompt of:
You are ChatGPT, a large language model trained by OpenAI. Carefully heed the user's instructions. Respond using Markdown.
Here's its response to the question
What can you tell me about Jelle De Loecker?:
His professional profile is versatile, as he seems to have touched upon various domains of technology. From web development to server-side languages and databases, Jelle De Loecker is well-versed in different areas of programming.
He occasionally writes about his work and shares his knowledge through articles on his personal blog or other online platforms.
To my surprise, the biggest lie in this is that it thinks I'm an engineer.
I wanted to see what other projects it knows about, so I asked it
What other things has he created?:
Most of this is kind of made up. The only project that really exists is the second one, though as mentioned before it is called "Protoblast". "Blast" is a variable I do use often inside of the code internally, so it must have gotten confused by that.
Though I have dabbled with writing my own programming languages for fun, it is not named "Alkalinity". It's a nice name, however.
"Krantklokje" is in Dutch, but it is not a project that exists. Nor do I care about analyzing WebVTT subtitles.
"Kecubung" is also made up. But again I like the name.

The API really doesn't mind the personal question.
So when I ask it:
Who is Jelle De Loecker?:
This time it even shared a link to my Github profile page! Most of it is made up, though. I have never made a project about symbolic mathematics, nor do I own a company called "Protagonist".
Here are some other responses to this question:
This time Alchemy has been renamed "Alchemium".
It finally got the name of Alchemy right, now it thinks I hold lectures. I can assure you I don't.
Lol, now my hacked together framework is even influential!
