I'm new! Can someone direct me to a CD guide?


Hey Chief Delphi!
I’m totally new here, but want to learn more about CD quick. I’ve never used a forum designed quite like this one before (at least, the new version now), and was wondering if there was a guide for all the cool features and how to use it properly.
I couldn’t find a new users category/tag, so I just posted here. Mods, feel free to move this topic if it’s in the wrong place.


Although I haven’t seen anything CD specific, check out this getting started guide to Discourse, the new CD platform. https://meta.discourse.org/t/discourse-new-user-guide/96331

NOT to be confused with Discord


Cool, thank you!


General rule of thumb - please search before you post. For other issues or anything, check out this sub-forum

additionally, here are some other topics that new users should read before diving into CD:


If you send a DM to @discobot and say “start new user” it will give you a new user tutorial. You’ll even get a nice shiny badge for completing it.


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

Just for testing purposes…
