You're not a forum newb, and from your posts you're clearly not a game newb. You've posted advice that I really appreciated when I read it. However....
I found this comment a little....abrasive?
Roles in DDO may be a bit fuzzier than in other games, and I'll admit that DDO_University's take on a tank was not maybe what everyone would think of. But the idea of the DDO University is a really nice one. This game is ridiculously complicated. I was lucky, and came from a PnP background of MERP (Middle Earth Role Playing, based on the GURPS ruleset) and an MMO background of Asheron's Call (flexible builds), and I STILL find it hard to handle and hard to get into. From a new player's point of view, DDO is HARD. And given the number of other MMOs out there which are "jump in and play", that's often off-putting.
All I'm saying is....a little gentler maybe? You could have offered some advice for DDOU to rewrite the article. God knows you have the knowledge.
Firstly, I applaud the idea. I've said this before in another of your posts. I'd love to be able to commit to helping, but the reality is that I have a very full family life, irregular play hours, and most importantly too shallow a depth of game knowledge to be a mentor to anyone. I'm still asking so many questions myself!
That article you linked could maybe do with a little revision. If you don't mind me offering a little advice, maybe a request to the DDO General board to help reword it slightly might yield a nice dividend for new players who read it
DDO University : A player run organization with the goal of trying to enrich the playing experience and community of those who play Dungeons and Dragons Online through education and research.
