A new user wanted to get the ‘Completed Tutorial’ badge, so I turned on Discobot to allow this.
I then noticed that new users weren’t receiving the welcome message I had set up, I checked this by creating a new account.
So I turned on this setting under
settings > narrative
I then set up a new user account to check it’s working and the email I received from Discobot was the classic:
Thanks for joining Huel Forum, and welcome!
I’m only a robot, but our friendly staff are also here to help if you need to reach a person.
For safety reasons, we temporarily limit what new users can do. You’ll gain new abilities (and badges) as we get to know you.
We believe in civilized community behavior at all times.

OK great. But the message I had before was personalised, so I went to
system_messages.usage_tips.text_body_template to change it, but the message is different here:
So I would like to:
- Change the Welcome Message
- Set the Welcome Message to come from my own account
I scouted meta.discourse and Google for the answer but couldn’t find specifically what I wanted. I apologise in advance, I’m not that tech savvy, at least compared to most of you! I manage my forum as I’m good with people, not for my tech abilities – so layman’s terms and walk through guides are very welcome!
