Help files suggestion
Posted 17 August 2014 - 11:33 PM
Before you go gendering me, I need to say first that I'm not a man. I'm also not a woman, so when you refer to me in the third person, please use "they."
Anyway, so I'm back from a three-year hiatus. Upon coming back, I see a lot of new content that I like. But there is one suggestion that I have, and that's on the help files.
A lot of the help files (ex: help clan) are tl;dr. I would like to suggest that there be a way to narrow the search if we want further information. For example, I wanted to know the levels when I could join a clan that wasn't clan 7. I hit continue 4 times (my page_length is 120, so the file is between 480 and 600 lines) just to look for the information. Now, I know I could have looked each time the prompt came up to see if the information I wanted was in there, but I wanted to look just once. If someone wanted information on the clan set feature, they wouldn't be able to option to press exit before the last bit came up without losing access to that information.
So I was thinking that the help files could have subfiles. For example, there could be "help clan basic" for basic information on clans. Then there could be "help clan set" for infromation on clan set. Or, for types of clans, there could be "help clan types" or "help clan order" if someone wants to know something more specific. If implemented, this feature would most likely help with bandwidth once people get used to the feature being there, depending on the complexity of the coding involved.
What do you guys think?

It has a great point that can also be taken from this, a lot of the game is pointlessly verbose and rather uninviting to newer players.

I think I generally assume any post that starts with a plea for gender attention is going to be a tumbles questions shot lord special.

Oops. I did not notice my use of gender-specific language.
OK, what do you all think.
