    Opt-In For Newbie OOC

    "Why aren't achievements working?", "How do I switch weapons" etc.
    and ofc trolls but we have bigger trolls.

    I'm really looking forward to all the new players.
    Which reminds me of a suggestion from a while ago, about helping out newbies to the game: an "opt-in" choice for the Newbie OOC.

    Currently the only way to help out newbies while they are still at the Newbie OOC level is keep a character at that level, log in, and camp the channel for questions. It would be much easier if people who wanted to help could opt-in to the newbie channel and keep an eye on it while they are on their higher level characters.

    Since it would be opt-in, no one that didn't want to be there would be bothered by it. And true newbies would get the benefit of experienced players who want to help out.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that there are some people who do just that -- keep characters on newbie island to help out others -- and I admire them greatly for that!

    Would be easy to achive this... let newbie OOC be available but unsub by defaut when you hit level 10-15 (whatever it is atm) and you need to activly subscribe back.

    I support the ability to see this channel from anywhere on any toon I could help on.
