Ah, it seems that there are now two embedded Discourse tutorials, proposed to new users.
As I am no longer a new user to http://community.metabrainz.org nor to http://meta.discourse.org I was wondering how were those two tutorials (basic and advanced).
Maybe @discobot can help me.


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


@discobot display help.


I currently know how to do the following things:

@discobot start new user

Starts one of the following interactive narratives: new user, advanced user.

@discobot roll 2d6

:game_die: 3, 6

@discobot quote

:left_speech_bubble: Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you — Princess Diana

@discobot fortune

:crystal_ball: You may rely on it


@discobot start new user


Thanks for the unicorn and certificate, @discobot!
(I wonder if this hidden topic is still visible to others)
See you next time for the advanced tutorial.


OK now let’s try the advanced tutorial!

@discobot start advanced user


Great I now did both tutorials and have this second diploma!
Thanks @discobot, it was instructive!


@discobot start new user

@discobot fortune


Fortune and quote were just tests I made, not required for tutorials and their effect is actually cancelled by first command (start new/advanced user). :slight_smile:

@discobot start new user


I wonder how this works…
@discobot start new user


@discobot start new user


@discobot start new user


@discobot roll 3d6
@discobot roll 3d6
@discobot roll 3d6
@discobot roll 3d6
@discobot roll 3d6
@discobot roll 3d6

Edit: darn it only takes one command per post.


:game_die: 2, 2, 6


@discobot roll 2D20 in more than 20 characters, please.


:game_die: 15, 17


Nice roll @jesus2099, definitely a hit :wink:


uhhh. someone explain the “roll” thing to me pls, you ask it to roll a die and it gives two numbers? (of which *both* are above 6?!)

oh I see there is a code to it. I don’t quite get the rolling syntax though…:sweat_smile:

wait let me try something

@discobot roll 5d6
