How do I reply to discobot?

I’m trying to do what discobot tells me to, but I can’t find how to reply to it…

The reply buttons are missing it seems:

This forum does not allow private messaging. – I guess the “welcome robot” text wasn’t updated to reflect this, so just skip this part.

I feel sorry for poor Discobot, waiting for replies it’ll never get. :smiley: I’d originally mostly ignored that welcome message, but after voxelv’s post I tried following its instructions out of curiosity, and a little later also got this message:

Hey @elcalen, just checking in because I haven’t heard from you in a while.

To continue, reply to me any time.

If you’d like to skip this step, say skip.

To start over, say start new user.

If you’d rather not, that’s OK too. I’m a robot. You won’t hurt my feelings. :sob:

Poor bot.

I see two ways forward:

  • report a bug to - the bot should skips this when private message are disabled
  • enable private messages on this forum

I’ve re-categorized this post to “Site Feedback”.

When starting this forum It seemed overkill to allow personal messages here, and I still think that personal private communication is beyond the scope of the Ardour community.

Oh well, there’s a 3rd option too: just leave it as easter-egg. It’s the time of the year anyway :slight_smile: Cute bot.
