Now that you’ve been promoted, it’s time to learn about some advanced features!

Reply to this message with @discobot start advanced tutorial to find out more about what you can do.

We invite you to keep getting involved – we enjoy having you around.

However, still:

How does this caper work? Is TL2 still only Basic … shouldn’t it now say Member? Have i now gained extra Like allowance, or will my allotment of Likes & Emojis continue to run out 7’ before i try to use one?


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

I’m envious! I only got:

This badge is granted for visiting 10 consecutive days. Thanks for sticking with us for over a week!


BEN: You lucky, lucky bastard.
BRIAN: What?
BEN: Proper little jailer’s pet, aren’t we?
BRIAN: What do you mean?
BEN: You must have slipped him a few shekels, eh?
BRIAN: Slipped him a few shekels? You saw him spit in my face!
BEN: Ohh! What wouldn’t I give to be spat at in the face! I sometimes hang awake at night dreaming of being spat at in the face.
BRIAN: Well, it’s not exactly friendly, is it? They had me in manacles!
BEN: Manacles! Ooh oooh oh oh. My idea of heaven is to be allowed to be put in manacles… just for a few hours. They must think the sun shines out o’ your arse, sonny.
BRIAN: Oh, lay off me. I’ve had a hard time!
BEN: You’ve had a hard time?! I’ve been here five years! They only hung me the right way up yesterday! So, don’t you come 'rou–
BRIAN: All right. All right.


The Gods have smiled upon you. Take it as as a sign!

A sign! Follow the sandal.
Noooo, follow the gourd.

Well I don’t want to be a “Proper little jailer’s pet” so I guess congratulations are in order.
Here’s mud in your eye!

Maybe click your heels together 3 times and mumble
“There’s no place like …”
or there’s always
@anon379864 God! I hope you can sleep tonight or last night, what ever.


I’m assuming you meant logout of the forum, rather than log out of my Plasma desktop session… so i did the former, but it hasn’t helped. Ta anyway.

You can try the latter, too. It probably won’t help, but…

It seems to be a bug regarding how badges are displayed. When you advance to TL2 (“Member”) you get the Member badge, but you keep the Basic badge, too and, for some reason, that one has the priority in the three badges that are displayed in your profile. :man_shrugging:


My next step is to install a swap partition…


And guess to whom i’m gonna give ownership…


@anon379864 I think @Kresimir is right, I have looked into the settings and there’s nothing on this I can change.
When I have an answer, I’ll get back to you.


Thank you @Bryanpwo & @Kresimir.

@anon379864 Apparantly, it takes some time before the badge in the profile changes, so be patient. (That’s the answer I got on Discourse)


Can we not turn all the “features” off? I dislike them intensely.
