(not sure if it's already said but)
I got an idea of.. maybe, instead of actual TU just popping on their hand,
(or maybe that AND)
A 20-50k TU token. For the sake of
"Hey, I should totally go to my inventory and click this item and get some tu,
I'd also learn to use items from inventory! :U".
A newbie pack? What would I'd loved to have got as a newbie?
Pretty much as others too, I guess.
A few food items. Couple of clothes. Maybe of a pool of same rarity, but a few different items.
("Hey, you've got the shirt/pants i wanted! Wanna trade with me?")
Im not personally really fond of the "a few eggs just for start" -thing. Maybe just one.
Why? Because it's Rescreatu's idea. Going trough the planets and finding some eggs. Duh.
Maybe a weapon, armor, or both? Ofc you'd wanna cover your creatu before you go to smack it up in the battle ground. Not anything superpowered or superdurable, just something to try out.
The welcoming letter? Maybe a few words about how great that they've joined and helped
making the site grow, hoping they'll enjoy the adventure amongst creatu and lots of users ...
A few rules. Just simply, not going all "DO NOT DO THIS AND THIS AND THIS."
But "You remember not to do these things, though? You can still do this and this!"
Also it would be applied with the link to the (possible?) newbie quiz, with "You can receive free helpful items if you answer a few simple questions right!"
Also, why not to make a HELPER GROUP?
A few active users that'd love to help new users,
but so that we wont overburden the lovable staff of ours?
No idea yet how it'd work, but something of the basis..
It would consist of a few users, of course more could join, who are not total newbies.
(so that they've been in here for a while so they could probably answer most of the questions)
And when a new user joins Res, they could be linked to the Helper Group's page (?)
where they could get assigned a helper. They could ask questions and help from this helper.
Of course this could be just done by newbies just sending rmails to random users
and asking them for help, but at least when I was newbie, i didnt have the kicks to just
bother random people with my "stupid questions". Just a thought, anyway.
( FAQ would do the same, but at least i'd love interacting with real people instead of reading a wall of text and CTRL+F'ing what i need. :/ )
.. That became one of a long post. OH WELL.
I hope it all isnt just brainless gibberish ouo"
