This forum software is a little unusual, so to help explain some of the features and how it works to new users there is a new ‘bot’ set up called ‘discobot’. It’s an interactive help and tutorial system.
To use it (even if you’ve been here forever) send a personal forum ‘Message’ (top right on your profile pic, looks like an envelope) to the user discobot.
In that message just say in your msg text ‘start new user’ and it’ll get you started. This is the same info and interactive tutorial that all new users here now go through when first arriving. Hopefully it’ll help explain some of the weirder things.
There’s a gift at the end, so dress to impress.
