Where can I find the Advanced User Tutorial?

I have seen mention of an Advanced User Tutorial; can someone point me at it?

I haven’t heard of it, where did you see mentions of that? Can you give a link or something? Generally we keep Krita Manual (with tutorials) here: https://docs.krita.org

Hi, thanks for responding! You have a badge for it, “Licensed”. It is supposedly an interactive tutorial, and since 45 people have qualified for the badge, I’m guessing the tutorial must actually exist, somewhere.

That’s an automated tutorial for how to use the forum: Making sections, lists, polls, etc.
As I remember, you get a message inviting you to do that after you go up through an initial ‘trust’ level, which will happen to you eventually.
It’s a one to one session with someone called kikibot who was very helpful and patient with me. I can’t remember anything else about it.

Ahh I thought it was supposed to be a Krita tutorial, but you’re talking about a Discord tutorial. You should get a message from a bot (@Kikibot) that starts the tutorial.

Hej! Aby dowiedzieć się, co mogę zrobić, powiedz @kikibot wyświetl pomoc.

Thank you. I did in fact receive a message from kikibot right after your response. The message was in Polish, and when I got it translated, it said:

“Hi! To find out what I can do, say @kikibot view help.”

But I am confused about how to do this. I tried creating a message, but specifying a user name of “kikibot” or “@kikibot” gets me a message saying I need to choose a valid user.

I currently know how to do the following things:

@kikibot 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.

@kikibot roll 2d6

@kikibot start advanced tutorial

You need to do this in a private message to the account concerned.
(I’m not saying her name because it makes her magically appear. Also, the reply was in Polish because @tiar first summoned her.)

Right-click on @… and you’ll get her profile page. That has the messaging icon at the top right to send a private message.
Then send a message. It’s quite clunky but it’s the pre-pack forum software.

Thanks. Sorry for doing this in-place… I did try sending a message to the robot in question, but was unable to do so – each time I was told I needed to specify a valid user name. I have since figured out that, although a mention of “@robot” in text will summon it, when addressing a message I must get the case correct, i.e., “Robot”, not “robot”.

Here’s the message I sent to try the tutorial before I made my last post here:

Then the advance tutorial started.

The account name does start with a capital letter but it worked for me when I used lower case, as you can see. I’ve no idea about this beyond what I’ve already seen and I can’t remember much of that.

It may be that you need to reach a certain ‘trust level’ before you can start the advanced tutorial. If you have problems with the bot in particular then you’ll have to contact raghukamath (with an @ in front) who is the forum administrator.
