The Botl King launched a botl with a very important message, welcoming new users to the Botl Community and offering some tips to make their first trip as enjoyable as possible. The official welcome in several languages reflects the variety of languages and cultures already represented by the hundreds of members of the Botl Community and their thousands of botls. The Welcome Botl is the first of a series of instructional botls that will be shared by The Botl King to help make the user experience as engaging and friendly as possible. To view the “Welcome Botl,” click here.
The Welcome Botl contains some great recommendations for new users:
1. Register an account, and then watch for an email from us. It should arrive almost immediately, and it will contain a validation link. Click on the link, and then sign in to Botl.

We’re working on making the user experience as friendly and intuitive as possible, but in the meantime, just know that the best way to discover great botls and meet other members of the community is to just click away and follow where each link takes you.
5. Follow other members. When you Follow another botlr, that automatically puts their botls on your wall. Many members of our community will follow you right back! When in doubt, click Follow.
