Hmm; there is no real complete “new user journey”.

Though, these things will help:

This is about trust levels:

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

Didn’t expect that as a result of just the @mention of discobot :grin:


Because it’s listening for its name to be mentioned


That discobxt thing brings back memories…a very surrealistic experience :upside_down_face:…those are those moments when I’m so glad I don’t use drugs…
And that picture of you @DarrellW :hot_face: does not help with the processing of the trauma :joy:


OK you asked for it! It lives here……….


I actually think this is a nice picture, but maybe the beauty on the front left will help with that too :innocent:

Followed this through but not sure I arrived at the right place, see images


Yup, that’s it. Nothing too fancy but perhaps some helpful pointers in getting to grips with the platform.

Tried many times to get Discobot to run the “tutorial” which I think is the New user tutorial, without any success just seemed to go round in a loop. So I tried the “Advanced Tutorial” and to my surprise it ran, went through and passed so I am “Licensed ” wonder if this means I can now sell alcohol!!!

On a more serious point not sure what is up with “Tutorial” it might be that it is only available for a short period after you join or not available if you have passed “Advanced Tutorial”

Will keep trying and see if I get through although I am sure it is not going to tell me something I don’t know it is just I don’t like being defeated.

Any suggestions as I must be doing something wrong

Michael, I’ve just run through getting into the Tutorial. I’ll post some screen shots of the Messages I’ve sent to Discobot to do this.

This was done from the Messages screen, accessed by clicking the down-pointing sign at the bottom of my Message Boc accessed by clicking my Avatar

And then the New Message button

Hopefully the sequence of messages will make sense

At this point you have to click the ‘…’ at the bottom of the screen and then the Bookmark icon, the shaded blue flag icon. After doing that I received the following

And then a matter of following the instructions to type up and send appropriate replies to complete the Tutorial.

Hope that helps you to get going and you pick up some valuable tips in so doing.

Thanks got there eventually.
Must say what it asks you to do is as hard as the advanced tutorial.
Cheers Michael👍

Glad to hear it, Michael.

I went through it back in mid December and recall it being a helpful introduction to using the Platform. Thereafter took me a while to become comfortable with the platform and figure out my own usage patterns.
