Hating on the Discobot tutorial

Have to admit that I’m finding the new user tutorial aggravating.

How long IS this thing?

And there are some things I don’t wanna do… like I absolutely refuse to post an emoticon! But you can’t answer ‘no’ to the discobot.

Plus you can’t ‘skip’ again after you’ve skipped something on its suggestion.

Oh, you’re serious. Either way, I really enjoyed your post. :laughing:

I’m serious now, I didn’t realise that skip only works once in Discobot.


Hey, ya gotta have fun griping 'bout a bot! So, serious… but not taking it seriously.

Assuming you’re serious here, you can simply stop following the tutorial. There’s nothing forcing you to complete it. I sign up on numerous sites daily as part of my job, and I skip discobot on each and everyone one of them.


I’m actually curious about what’s in there. (Since our group just put up a Discourse installation.)

But I just want to flip through them rather than do the exercises. (Typical lazy 'puter abuser!)

Not the best solution, but you can read through the translation file if you really want to skip completing the tutorial.


Most excellent! A few of the items were very enlightening and I’m not aggravated anymore!

Plus I can go back and find the one I’ll almost remember in the future!

But the Discobot really oughtta learn ‘no’ is an acceptable answer. Even if we’re not two-year-olds. (‘No!’ seems to be the favorite word at that age.)
