I created an account and started taking your tutorial. After completing the first one, I discovered that there was an advanced tutorial so I dug in deeper.
Unfortunately, I’m now stuck as there’s a conflict between the Trust Level I have as a brand new user and the Trust Level required to create a poll. So, now I can’t complete the tutorial (though perhaps this post will raise my trust enough to make that moot).
A couple of solutions present themselves:
- Exempt Discobot conversations from the Trust Level requirement so that the tutorial can be completed.
- State “to continue this tutorial, you’ll need more Trust on this site”.
Either way, it might be interesting to introduce the concept of Trust Levels earlier in the tutorial (I only know about them from poking around, not from the tutorial) so that new users realize that they won’t be able to create a poll on the outset (among other things).
There may be other thoughts on this but I’d love to complete the tutorial, either way, so I’d prefer the first option. In a sandbox, I’m not sure why the TL restrictions should apply (love to hear more on this if anyone has thoughts, too!). Another slight point of friction - I wasn’t told that I couldn’t create a poll until I’d spent five minutes creating one and figuring out the various elements, so it’d be great to know about that sooner.
(Aside, Discobot is now pinging me, distressed that I’ve wandered off without completing the tutorial. It’s not my fault, little friend! I’m sorry!)
