Discourse: The Backbone of the Refuge

I mean for it to save this position, so if I leave the thread and come back later it will start there

@discobot detonate the Buck Club thread.

@discobot say “Sorry, Nandy.”


Started using Fig today and it’s definitely slicker than the Discourse app. But for some reason it doesn’t shoe anyone’s avatars - just a blank circle. Anyone else having this issue?

Same issue, and as strange as it is you can see little tiny avatars on the “latest” screen but not within a thread

Yeah - might be a deal breaker for me as silly as it sounds. Avatars are crucial to be able to skim and spot various posters.

Also not a fan of how notifications go to the “inbox” apparently? Discourse is erratic but at least notifications pop up by your name at the top like on the actual site.

I tried Fig and hated it. Deleted it well inside three minutes.


@discobot how do I link posts?

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

@discobot display help

I currently know how to do the following things:

@discobot start {name-of-tutorial}

Starts an interactive tutorial just for you, in a personal message. {name-of-tutorial} can be one of: tutorial, advanced tutorial.

@discobot roll 2d6
