New to Eve, wondering how to pick up your new gun, how to use it, where in eve it is?

Then please come to the help channel. Lot of experience players are there just waiting to help you with all your little, and not so little, questions.

But remember we are only players most of the time so be patient.

Very Happy

How do I get to the Help Channel?

On the left of the screen where all the icons are for things like your wallet and mail there should be one for channels. I think its a speech bubble, its not far from the bottom. Hit that icon and you'll get a list of channels. Go to the Help channel and hit the join button.

Patience and good manners will be awarded more than being a stroppy loud mouthed fool. I kinda get the impression from the posts that you're not that type anyway.

I recommend help channel, very nice people there. I spent my first month playing eve reading at it and I learned a lot^^. They even explained me how ammunitions worked, and it was not easy, trust me!

You will meet expert miners, traders, agent runners, pvpers, and a few pirates, a lot to learn thereSmile.

Another point worth noting for other newbies like myself. There does not seem to be a search on this site. Look through the sticky messages on top. There is a post on where to find search for these forums. Very helpfull when you want to look for specific info. Many common questions already have been answered at lenght and you can save yourself and others time, by trying the search.

One remark: Please try to find out the answer first yourself. For example questions such as `how much costs ..`or where can I find <insert item name>` If you are looking to buy something first try the market button especially the advanced options are woth investing some time in to see what they do or trade channel if you can stand the spam.

And dont forget the color codings in chat:

White = player
Teal = ISD volunteers they can contact GM so be nice to them
Green = higher ranking ISD mostly team leads
Yellow = ISD officers such as Vice Admirals
Red = GM a rare sight in help
Blue = Devs extremely rare sight

I think these are all, but no guarantee

Even if you are having problems with a kill mission, for example if you are just moving into level 3 agent kill missions, then often a cry for help on the help channel or missions channel will get a friendly player to come and help you out and show you a few pointers.
