So I'm piddling around and I get a random PM from a player asking me how to get off welcome isle.

I don't mind helping people at all, sad thing was...I could hardly remember my visit to welcome isle but I knew that it was one of the questions that you can ask the NPC's so I told them to ask around. and that I remembered at least that much. And We chatted a bit. But then it kind of hit me...you're not in the "General Population" when you first start out... so how did they wind up PMing me in the fist place to ask for help? (Not that I mind.) It just kind of strikes me as odd.

They probably wound up hitting "Players" an then "All Players Online". That's the only way I could think of, anyways. Maybe they just thought your user name sounded interesting, so they chose to PM you?

Maybe. -Shrug- I just hope I helped them enough.

Just a tiny tip: in case a player on Welcome isle asks you for help again, tell them about the help videos on HI2's website - I believe there is a complete walkthrough there.

Hmm, several things could be here. One thing I notice is some times "new" players message me that used to be friends with me before I blocked them for either spamming or something. They generally start out sweet then BAM you can see the pattern hitting you in the face, 'this is such and such I muted' "DELETE".
Could also be what was suggested above they just thought your name was cool.
Or
Someone just really want to bug the snot out of you with questions and get away with it. *shrugs*

-- I did at least remember to refer them to the help videos. It took me a second. I had one of those.. "Oh yeah." moments. So huzzah for that. When it come to the !help menu I probably use the videos more than anything for examples.

I'm starting to think maybe since they were "Lost" I might have looked like a good candidate.

I seriously doubt anyone who asks for actual help is out to "Bug the snot.." out of anyone.

[ I find a difference between asking for help and begging for items. Now that...is something else entirely.]
