I partly disagree Tarkion. The tutorials and search should be a new users first friend. If somebody doesn't even make the attempt, then why should anybody else lose their own time in providing help, when the person in question won't make an attempt to help themselves.
Of course, whether the tutorials or manuals could be better designed for newer players is another question.
I agree Aurora Australis but once the new member has begin whit tutorials and the manual, the forums are the spirit of the community, the site where you can learn from other users more with more experience... It is a pity the experienced users do not give an opportunity because some lazy new users...
