How to start level two of the @discobot fun?

Hallo! Um herauszufinden, was ich kann, schreibe @discobot Hilfe anzeigen.

You can talk to the bot in the same chat where you took the original tutorial.

Yes but don’t know how to trigger him to give me the second one

I just asked it “start advanced tutorial”

I haven’t found the first one yet :sweat_smile:


discobot start tutorial

Y’all are cracking me up. It sent you a message. Go talk to it in that message, not on the public channels. :slight_smile:

To be fair I didn’t even know @discobot was a thing until I saw this post. I think I missed something when I logged in for the first time haha


You’ve disabled me in your preferences. You need to allow new user onboarding tips to interact with me.


Also TBF, it seemed like a general info message you get when joining any other forum (usually rules and etiquette) :woman_shrugging:

I would never have thought to reply to it because that’s not something you would normally do anytime you get basic info junk from forum admin bots, Microsoft, or any other organisation you sign up to things with, etc…
The message also says nothing about replying to it, only “If you’d like to learn more, select … below and bookmark this personal message.”

I think Niantic needs to look up the word “intuitive” :woman_shrugging::sweat_smile:


This is not something Niantic can control. Its a feature of the new hosting platform.


Fair enough.
Nonetheless, it might seem obvious to you once you know, but I expect many will overlook that because why would they want to bookmark a random forum bot introductory message that contains no info of any real interest :sweat_smile::woman_shrugging:
Many people don’t pay those kinds of things much attention because we get so used to having the same kind of stuff thrown at us whenever we sign up to something new and it’s usually fairly generic stuff :woman_shrugging: I’m one of the weird people that usually does pay more attention to TOS and whatnot, but I’m certainly in the minority, and that message didn’t scream important to me :sweat_smile:

You’re not wrong, but there’s a badge for completing both of the tutorials. These competitive Wayfinders will see these badges and figure out (or ask) how to get them!

Yes it’s very hidden, but it’s not a Niantic feature, it’s just from the forum engine and gives a forum badge

Thanks. I found it due to this thread.
I also thought the message was unimportant

The advanced tutorial broke for me. It told me to scroll to the bottom of “this topic”—presumably meaning the message—and set the notification level to tracking. But the message didn’t have the usual drop down for notifications. Anyway , it let me type “skip” and move forward. Mobile interface is a bit awkward though.

I had to go to desktop too, in mobile it’s impossible

I managed mine on mobile. Luckily, because I don’t use a laptop.
