Discobot -- a new robot member of our forum


#1

I just noticed that this forum has a new automated user called discobot.

If you send the message

@discobot display help

to the discobot user, it will tell you what it can do.

It has a little training routine that can teach you about how to use this forum. I just ran thru the training for advanced users, and I learned a couple of things :slight_smile: There is also a training for brand new users.

I am wondering if discobot is going to pop up here since I mentioned “him”.

By the way, discobot isn’t something that ProVUE did – it was created by the Discourse people, and I think is now part of any Discourse forum.
