@dynamodefender When you are talking to discobot in a PM (denoted by an envelope), you shouldn’t prepend your message with “@discobot”, since the bot already knows you are talking to it.

Ok but it literally said to say @discobot display help

That is its default message. You have to specify the command. Discobot is to allow you to get the Certified and Licenced badges.

In your PM it should have provided you different instructions, because it was trying to teach you how to use a Discourse forum.
