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.
The real expert I know is @ninjas_with_onions, he’s figured out the intricacies of the bot tutorials.
You learn something new every day. I didn’t even know that existed…
@erniebc1982 If you can’t find the Greetings! mail from Discobot or have delete it then just start a new mail message to Discobot with the words in the body of the message as show
This will start the tutorial for the Certified badge
we had quite some fun thanks to @misswillowinlove who started this thread and we went on the hunt for badges it was a blast
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.?

The below links gives more enlightenment, and is the model for the discussions we use, and have been using on Viki.
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…
It is decidedly so

The Certified badge has been around for a while, but when Discobot messages you he doesn’t tell you that the tasks he’s giving you will result in a badge. The Licensed badge is newer, it wasn’t around when I started on Discussions.
Even now, he still doesn’t give me tasks. All I found out just now messaging him is that I can let him say a quote, tell my fortune, and roll a dice.
Did you try private messaging Discobot like @ninjas_with_onions showed above?
Yes, but I got nothing useful.
Weird, I guess Discobot doesn’t want you to get the badges.
The first task is in the greeting message, bookmark it and it knows!
