Learn how to use Discourse well with @discobot and earn the 'Read the Manual' and 'Took the Tutorial' badges!

Please, can anyone provide the way to earn this badged? It says we have to read a beginner tutorial at the beginning… where is that?


All (new) users receive the automatic private message from discobot. If you missed or can’t find it, follow these steps:

  • Go to your personal preferences
  • Look at tab “Messages”
  • Select discobot’s message titled Greetings!

select it, and play with @discobot

  • @discobot start new user ---------> to get “Read the Manual”
  • @discobot start advanced user → to get “Took the Tutorial”

Follow the tutorial and at the end, you get your certificate.


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

And after going through the whole thing…

Certificate of Achievement


Should we re-do this topic into a howto / guide?

Also, I just edited it because I renamed those badges — I think “Certified” and “Licensed” both have strong implications that go beyond “did an intro tutorial” and I don’t want to confuse people.

And actually, about that… What should the "Licensed" and "Certified" badges be called?
