When you join this lovely community, the Discourse platform may lend a hand and guide you with the first steps: How to create a topic, quote, formatting, likes, etc.
You’ll recognize the notification in the upper right corner and learn about discobot, a gentle tutorial bot which helps you in an interactive tutorial
No more spoilers, try it out! Only one thing - you can earn a badge for completing the tutorial with discobot.
If you cannot find the private message, just send a new one to @discobot and include the following text:
@discobot start new user
Once you’ve completed the basic tutorial, start the advanced tutorial with
@discobot start advanced user. This grants you a second badge
