@jongolson... aka Jon, My personal opinion about bots.... when used responsibly they can help you reach people you might not be able to reach. I recommend making this a module that is not available until you reach a certain level of understanding. I think you know where that is at! :) I think showing pros and cons will allow folks to make a decision. Now with that in mind I would not penalize someone whom chooses not to use a bot... so training and understanding is a must... using one should not be necessary to progress in training!
Once I have a further peak inside I will suggest a couple of d'apps if you don't have them covered. I also suggest you reference some work by others that have done some reviews... for example @ericwilson has been doing several nice reviews!
I also suggest early on you add in the recommendation of adding to your coinbase account the Star for STEEM. Showing the importance of this is a good guidance on what can be done to help them and others grow!
