Certified and Licensed Badge

How do I get the Certified and Licensed Badge? Can anyone tell me? :thinking:

Are you referring to the “Qualified Contributor” badge? The one that looks like a diamond?

When you first started in Discussions you would have received mail from Discobot, it would look something like this…

You need to complete the tutorial (tasks from Discobot) to get the Certified Badge. After you’ve received the Certified Badge to get the Licensed Badge you have to complete the advanced tutorial by typing in ‘@ discobot start advanced user’ in your mail to & from Discobot (I’ve separated the @ because I don’t want to call him here, lol)

I hope that helps.

I’ve never had any tutorial… :thinking:
The only thing I ever had to do here to get more options was just post.

Did you get mail from Discobot? Just do all the things Discobot tells you to do in the mail and you’ll get the badges, if you care about the badges that is. :slight_smile:

I think you have to do something first to get that mail, but I can’t remember what.
Maybe @discobot

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.

I’m not positive what you do if you/someone didn’t get the welcome message from Discobot, I’d try going to messages, starting a new message, addressing it to @ Discobot (separating the @ because I don’t want to call him) and in the message type something like ‘start user tutorial’

This is a new feature we didn’t have in the past. Many pages use that now.

Where and to whom should I say that?

Do this in your Message Only, open up a new message, and begin with the below. Do not do it in any thread, old, or new, in discussions.
Try starting here @irmar,
You’ll quickly realize you already know these functions, but go through the motions. This is how you get the licenses, and certificates. Now be a good bot student.:laughing::rofl:

The real expert I know is @ninjas_with_onions, he’s figured out the intricacies of the bot tutorials.

All right, I got it, you start having a discussion with a bot by private message.
Another question: what do the certified and licensed badge do? What are they good for? It’s just something that’s displayed on your profile page, like the other badges, or does it give you some privileges, things you can do etc.?

I did get messages from bots when I first started, but no tutorials. The badges and new “powers” just came as I posted more.
But I guess that Certified badge is a well-kept secret…:thought_balloon:
