As I said in one of my previous messages, discourse is launching an update on the 31st May 2017.
We’re the 31st May and version 1.8 is now installed on this forum ;-)
Have you noticed some changements ? Some visual effects and features of course, but I’m pretty sure that no one (except me 😊) have noticed that a new user have joined this community !
Say welcome to @discobot !
This “user” is a bot ;-) Now, you’ll say… What can he do ;-)
Nothing in particular to us, but he’s very useful for new users ;-) Now you’re wondering how and why ?
Simply create a private message between you and him and say that :
@discobot start new user
And now enjoy it ! For sure you’ll love it ;-)
Then there’s some other features such as :
• @discobot roll 2d6
• @discobot quote
• @discobot fortune
That’s all for the moment :-) Fun isn’t it ?
Of course, mods and admins are able to modify any settings, such as his name or what he can or should reply ;-)
It’ll help a lot new users ;-)
I’m very happy and I know him very well because I’ve contributed to the French version of it ;-)
Have an amazing day everyone!
Yea I PM’d the @discobot, earlier today (don’t ask why lol) and it seems like it doesn’t do much, but hopefully it can do more in the future :).
Hi! To find out what I can do, say
@discobot display help.
Slightly off topic - what other features have arrived?
I tried out discobot on their trial website and it was much better at teaching than a simple message.
Nothing spectacular to be honest… check this topic :
There’s some “little” things such as a new design of the settings page etc… A lot of “behind-the-scenes” changements.
Meh not as good as the slackbot we set up on the old TSK slack (@BavariaAVIATION)
Guys! Let’s start a competition ;-) All of you can recommend a name for it, then we’ll do a poll and finally we will see what’ll be the next name of ‘discobot’ !
It can be something like :
And we hope that mods will accept to change it ;-)
Welcome to the community @discobot! What is your callsign? I would like to fly with you sometime.
Anyway good to have you here @discobot. WELCOME!!!
Seems cool. I propose we name him Otto after the autopilot robot in “Airplane!”
Great idea ! I like it ;-)
Welcome @discobot! How about the name, ‘aerobotics’?
What about flightbot or avdroid
I second this. It’s a nice reference! Also a great movie lol
