      ideas or just praise them.

 Also look at  'help commands' or  'help commands long', and
 type 'topics' for  a list of all miscellaneous help documents
 you also can read.

 If you have a question which you cannot  find the answer to
 in any help-document,  try asking another player. The  best
 way to do  this is using  a channel. For example,  'ice Can
 you help me?'. You  can see what  channels are available to
 you by  typing 'channel list'. If you want  to turn on some
 channel that you currently have turned off, type 'channel
 join <name>',      You can  also try talking directly  to a
 player with the 'tell'-command, eg  'tell neurotico Can you
 help me?'.  Always  try asking other  players first, before
 you ask a wizard.

 Also, please do  read the documentation  first so you don't
 unnecessarily ask questions already answered there.

 We are always seeking to  improve our newbie documentation.
 Please inform us if you find any errors in it or have ideas
 of what else should be mentioned here. Thank you.
