Create an "Information Box" in the cRPG Browser

Something that may help new players... would be to have useful information readily available.  We oldies love the forum.  But the forum can be more intimidating than the game itself.  And most new players don't even know what to search... to even hunt information down.

If an "Information Box" was created on the right side of the cRPG Browser, this might really help inform new players.  Which may help their experience.  Which might help keep them around.

This Information Box could have tips & directions placed right on the screen.  Maybe they would be collapsible (like our spoilers) so that you could fit a bunch of information.  You could have links to some of the most helpful post & guides on the forum.  Could have links to practical builds.

Better yet, create new guides and documentation.  I know it'd be an undertaking.  But new, clear-cut, and well designed guides could really help bring cRPG to a new audience.  How-To guides.  Build guides.  Gameplay guides.  This documentation could be nicely designed PDFs (doesn't have to be our forum; would of course create a link on our forum to the PDFs as well).

Someone who's a decent documentation writer would need to take this on.  I actually pride myself with documentation (have to do it for work)... but with a 7 month old, I just couldn't undertake such a task.

Anyways, what do you guys think?
