How can I use the postbot? I am trying to start the tutorials… I think I will need to use the Dutch word for it, that’s no problem, but what do I need to do to start them? I have over 30 messages now, doing nothing ::

Try: @postbot start tutorial and follow his instructions :wink:

Normally you message the postbot with a command like:

@postbot start tutorial


@postbot start advanced tutorial

Something to be careful about is with copying&pasting the commands — we’ve had some issues with that in the past. Sometimes doing that will also copy the style of the text which causes the bot not understand the text part of the command. The simplest way to avoid is simply to type the command instead of copy&paste.


@_Hawkwind_ and @paulo
Thanks for the replies… I have managed to finish the advanced tutorial… the normal one is still on my to do list :slight_smile:


I also have done the advanced tutorial. :smiley:

I had an issue with the postbot earlier today. During a roll, it pulled duplicate numbers twice. I’ve never seen this before so I don’t know if there’s a trick I’m missing to prevent it or if there was a legit issue.

This link will take you to the post it happened.

It is legit. If you roll thirteen dice (each with 55 sides), it is possible to get the same number twice. Just like when you use physical dice, sometimes you get doubles.


Okidoke! Thank you!

I received an email from postbot.

What does this do? I don’t know how to use it. I don’t even know how to raise the level. :joy:

Hi Season! Postbot is a friendly bot that helps newbies get used to some of the forum’s features. Just follow the instructions on the email titled “Greetings!”, and it’ll help you discover how to like posts, create bookmarks and other things you might want to try. :slight_smile:

Is there any upper limit of numbers for the postbot when rolling dice?

Yes, according to Postbot it has 20 dice and a die can have maximum of 120 sides. So it can give maximum of 20 numbers at one time and numbers can be anything between 1-120

Under interface you can untick the option “Skip new user onboarding tips and badges”. That will allow the Postbot to interact with you.
