    Hey, @skullz613 :)

    Do you think that it is possible to welcome newbies with some private message, e.g. by the XLNation Staff Account? Then we could include e.g. a link to the Beginner's Guide and some other important parts of this website, and maybe help the newbies automatically.

    @all: don't hesitate to add some ideas ;)

    Great idea.

    Edit : I don't know if it could be useful but maybe we could add a question about the game version used.

    Think I have a modification I could add if I can't do it with the native forum software. I'll look into it. Only problem I have is if I have to upload stuff I have to wait until I'm somewhere with a good internet connection. I only have data on my phone at the moment. Could be moving mid January into a house.

    Do you mean in the welcome message or in your profile?
    If in your profile it could be a compulsory question and I might also be able to get it to show on forum posts under our avatars.

    I was thinking in the welcome message when I wrote but your idea is better.

    I can add a welcome message. I'm sure I could add a new question for our profiles but can't track it down at the moment.

    I'll spend some time today gathering links and write it up. It's harder doing it all on my phone so takes a while. Should have it done later today
