👩‍🎓 Gaining Forum Badges

We all love these little “non-esential flags” on our forum accounts right? :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

So how do we earn some of these? :man_student::woman_student:
Most have enough description, but some are lacking info on how to actually get them…

For example:

So maybe put some links in those also :wink:

  • Certified badge:

    • Go back to the very first message you received on the forum and answer discobot and follow its instructions!
  • Licensed badge:

    • After completing the above, send a private message to discobot

      start advanced tutorial

Uhmmm that welcome message didn’t have any question i could answer to…
(Plus there is no reply option to that message, it’s closed)

I clicked and read those 3 links before i engaged further on the forum, at start, like everyone should :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Ok i just send it a “Helo !” message via it’s icon, and it started to respond.
I’ll just see how that goes :smiley:


If that welcome message would have mentioned to send a helo message to @discobot more people would know about it and try it :wink:
I’m now certified yay :smiley:

OTOH, It was me telling you what to do, not you doing it that was the solution, so IFTFY!

:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :crazy_face:

Yes but that post is giving the total solution. (Inclusive your starting hint :wink: )

Maybe it’s worth to convert this thread into a “How-To” at this stage…
(Not sure if that is among the possibilities of the software or that it just needs a tag)



That’s why i did not select your original reply as the solution, so please stop the juggling of the selection :stuck_out_tongue:
(Yes i (we) appreciate your answer ofcourse, but it is not the correct one.)

As per Private message:

FYI: Don’t assume I keep taking away the solution from you: any TL3 on this site can do that


P.S.: And they will…

Nah! Always be polite and say anything polite back even when it’s a bot! :joy:


Ok didn’t know that.
Plus i don’t mind who the solution is “credited” to, just wanted it to be the one that helps to actually get it…

If people change it, it’s no problem because they can read the thread and find the actual step needed anyway…

I saw that coming a mile away…


So those badges are like a Pokémon cards collection that we collect, but cannot trade. :thinking:

I don’t even have Pokémon cards :rofl:


What are those? (Just kidding)
I must be too old :rofl:
