Other than the current chat channel, you guys should make a chat channel with scheduled question and answer times, where the staff (and properly trained authorities) would just setle things without new newbie topics popping up everywhere. :cow:
If a tree fell on a mime in the woods and no one was around to see it, would anyone care?

But a good deal of the 'newbies' (I prefer the term 'newcomers'), don't go on chat often enough to go to such things. It would be easier to deal with them in the forum, or in the main chat channel (where the non-staff, yet still intelligent will reside).

Still intelligent when we want to be... I think just having newcomers PM an older member or Op works just fine  :D  But it is a good suggestion. Let's get God in here to decide.... C'mon Silver you lazy bastard lol
