One user told me that after registration the initial bot (“discobot” i believe) was obnoxious … what do you think, is it better to disable it?
I found some hints, like on thread creation, are just to much in the way, to be helping side-notes.
not sure i can properly parse your sentence. Are you saying that discobot was not really helping and it’s fine to disable it?
I had closed the notice that was in front of the preview without reading the hints.
They shouldn’t block anything.
They may be helpfull, but I personally would rather not have the blocking. I would prefer an unobtrusive way to make the hints available.
The yes/no decision is not good currently (and I rather answer negative), but solvable with an improved presentation.
i am not up for trying to tweak the support side – it’s either the current behaviour or disabling the bot. One person told me that the bot was much too obnoxious for her taste and she’d rather not ahve it.
Then I would say to disable the discobot messages.
But please check to put some effort in completely fixing the existing IMAP handling and use-case solutions: (once and for all, and not breaking network effects)
k, i disabled the discobot for now.
as to that other issue, that’s obviously a lot more involved than unchecking the “discobox” checkbox in the admin-interface here
