Helpline

Postby Sabrelon » Mon Aug 18, 2014 5:00 pm

So I've noticed since I hopped In Game that the Helpline is disabled, and all of the questions that people have about syntax and mechanics have to be done with the OOC command (not that I mind using it, it's just jarring when it happens multiple times in the same scene).

Is there a reason it's not available, and is there a chance we could get it turned back on?

What is helpline?

Is it some sort of global ooc chat thing? If so, I hope it gets buried eighty feet under and filled in with goose droppings. Yes. Goose Droppings.

It was a newbie channel for questions, with only staff and guides having permanent access. Otherwise it was active for as long as people had their (new player) tag on, which is no longer a thing.

It's a newbie channel like Throttle said that can be opted into while you're a new player, it's turned off by default. I don't care much for OOC channels, but it's 100x better than having to ask OOC questions in character, and I'm sure it's easier for newbies than petitioning up/going to the OOC Lounge and hoping for some answer.

If newbies want to pick my brain over regarding something, you are allowed to...I can schedule that appointment. Probably immediately. :P
