PerlMonks does not exactly have the most intuitive interface. In many ways that's part of its charm. But lets be realistic -- it also makes it harder for new users to figure out how to do things. Even something like accessing your Inbox isn't as intuitive as it could be. So I don't think it's really fair to expect new Monks to quickly become acclimated to the environment. Even more so when English is not
the respective Monk's native language, such as the case here where manoj_speed
is from India. We also do not know the contents of the message sent by Co-Rion
. If he told manoj_speed that he needed to contact the gods then exactly how is he supposed to know how to do that? I have been here over eight years and I think this thread is the first time I have seen "/msg gods". I'm not saying you are wrong -- but it also seems unreasonable to just assume new Monks can easily figure out how to navigate The Monastery.
