Interactive new user tutorial - Posts about nothing :)


While adjusting setting in my user profile I admired the Badges I’ve earned! Ultimately ended on a list of all the possible Badages! Wouldn’t it be real neat to have a few more.

I notice one for Certified:

This badge is granted upon successful completion of the interactive new user tutorial.
You’ve taken the initiative to learn the basic tools of discussion, and now you’re certified!

Where is this “interactive tutorial”?

Then seems I can go on to get Licensed:

This badge is granted upon successful completion of the interactive advanced user tutorial. You’ve mastered the advanced tools of discussion — and now you’re fully licensed!

That just sounds super awesome! It doesn’t look like anyone found that one, but apparently 46 users are Certified.

I know it’s getting late for me, and I have more important things to be concerned with, but I just wonder about pointless things.


I’m certified. You need to chat with @discobot. I’m not sure the exact process to initiate the tutorial. I suspect it was either in an email after I joined or I was prompted online soon after I joined.


Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.


@discobot display help


I currently know how to do the following things:

@discobot start new user

Starts one of the following interactive narratives: new user, advanced user.

@discobot roll 2d6

:game_die: 3, 6

@discobot quote

:left_speech_bubble: Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you — Princess Diana

@discobot fortune

:crystal_ball: You may rely on it


Well there you go. Have fun


@discobot start new user


Thanks greatly… now I know! :robot:


Hey - I am the first to get licensed! Thanks @djk44883 for bringing up this topic!
I actually learned a few things like


Hidden details

Creating a poll:

  • I Love Tablo
  • I Like Tablo
  • Tablo is just OK
  • I Hate Tablo

0 voters


Congratulations!! I hadden’t gotten around to mess’n with it… but kind of had that idea. I am glad you’re number 1 thought, since you’re already certified :laughing:

I’ve used the little triangle thing to kind of ‘hide’ a snark remark


You know, the polls should be used more often instead of some of the pointless back-and-forth at times.


Totally agree and I love your hidden remark.


Congrats on your certification :+1:

I see @3rdRockOKC has earned the Licensed badge


It wasn’t immediately obvious to me how to start the advanced tutorial, but I finally figured it out.

See what I mean?

Just ask discobot to start advanced user!

You can learn something new every day if you try.


@bbaorbb here’s another waiting for a first


This badge is granted when you invite someone to join the community via the invite button on your user page, or at the bottom of a topic. Inviting friends who might be interested in specific discussions is a great way to introduce new people to our community, so thanks!

you got this!! They’ll need to add Badge Master next


I saw that and thought of a friend of mine who has a Tablo - I’m not sure if he is already part of the community (probably). I could add my dad who now has a Tablo but I am his Tablo support guy…


I see @Radojevic joined the Licensed Party.
@djk44883 - you need to join too.


Yup. :slight_smile:


It won’t let me post my certificate :cry:


You got this! Inviting someone as a Promoter isn’t the same as Campaigner or a Champion.

You have to work your way through these pointless badges, start small then

go big

(where’s my big letter badge?)




Look what you have started @djk44883. Discobot has been busy today :grinning:
