Can we have a Sticky thread for New Players?

Recommended Posts

Gibsonm:

I received your PM and visited the Starter Pack link. Good stuff.

I am mid-M1A1 tutorials right now and will hit the missions listed in that link after I am done.

A suggestion is to add labels to the sections so the info is easier to find.

For example:

1. LEARNING TO PLAY WITH YOURSELF (haha)

A. Through Experience

B. Through Reading

2. PLAYING WITH OTHERS

A. Regular Events

B. Semi-Regular Events

C. Organized Groups

Sure once I know how to do it.

Working out how to underline was bad enough. :)

*Sigh*

This is what's wrong with humanity

Are you sure that is the ONLY problem Hedge?:) On second thoughts - don't answer that.

I added some sections in there. Once you are happy with it, I think the best thing to do is to add it as a separate forum that sends users straight there when clicked.

Thanks.

I was trying to avoid the silly (IMHO) lines right across the page.

I was looking for Headings, Sub Headings, etc or even the ability to change font size but I guess that's a bit much.

We may have to thank a youtuber for that.

"DevilDogGamer"(??), he has quiete a few followers. Good promo I'd say!!

And agreed, there should be a sticke with some basic info on all the active/available VU's for new players to get Info...Idealy in the opening post.

He is the reason that I found this game. I did not realise how much I missed being on a tank until I saw DevilDogGamers' videos. Which led me to more videos, which led me to buy this sim. I haven't been on a tank in over 30 years but this sim is probably more acurrate than I remember things. I am impressed by how easy modern technology has made this line of work (tanking, that is). Will start online soon.

Tim :cvc:

P.S. I like the wiki page, it is a good place to start.

Thanks for the feedback, esp. from someone without a bunch of assumed knowledge.

Its still in draft but should be finalised in the next day or so.

Welcome aboard. :)

Right so the Wiki page (such that it is) is written.

Of course the target audience has no idea its there or how to get to it.

Can we have a "sticky announcement" (if such a thing exists) which is a simple link to the Wiki Page?

Something like:

Subject: "Where to go if you are a new person"

Text: Congratulations on buying Steel Beasts and welcome to the community!

Your first port of call should be the dedicated Wiki page for new comers:

http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack

And keep in mind the Wiki itself is a great reference tool to supplement the User Manual:

http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

After that, have a look around here and feel free to introduce yourself to the group.

Welcome! :)

That should keep the new person on track and avoid comments about what does and does not happen in goal, etc. ;)

Maybe include it in a welcome e-mail that gets sent out when someone registers on the site?

This is a good idea and I suggest including the links above on the SB Home Page - right below the "Welcome to SB" box.

I would only add to Mark's example a suggestion to bookmark the page(s).
