Oh, sorry, then I'll act as a newbie.

first of all, you need KRO/sakray. Because almost all server need it (item sprites, etc)

Excuse me, but where is this KRO/Sakray?  I can't seem to find it and I don't know what to do with it when I get it.

fourth, make your ID

How will I make this "ID"?  In the game?  On the website?  I can't seem to find this either.

don't forget to check server's status

If I've downloaded everything from the server, I'm naturally going to assume it's up

don't forget to check if the GMs are corrupt or not

How can I tell if a GM is "corrupt"?  What do they do that is wrong, how will I be able to know for sure?

--

You're forgetting that the people who will be reading this "guide" won't be familiar with RO.  You could have linked to a kRO/Sakray download, you could have told people about control panels or registration pages, you're telling them to read the rules with some retarded reasoning, and you're telling them that everything will be fine, instead of giving some handy tips that say if the client crashes due to a gravity error, you should make sure that you have an sdata.grf file in their folder, to run sakray.exe etc.  You're being too vague

You're also telling them to check a servers status, also being vague, not telling them what this means.  You're also telling them to make sure GMs are not corrupt, but this is their first time on RO, so they won't be able to tell how their being corrupt and whatnot, you're still being vague.

tl;dr you're being too vague


You could have been nicer, no need to act like jerk to make a point.

I don't really like the guide possibly because it's rather useless to me, but, I don't see how "tl;dr" fits in.  It doesn't even look long at all, or am I taking that too literally (I personally don't understand how "tl;dr" even works).

i meant a tl;dr on my post

i'm sorry but should i say a bad guide is oh so amazing?  there are about 20391230193 things she could have done better, anyone could vouch for that, and that it's something that is explained on server websites about 100 times better in general

plus i don't know if you'd realise but people new to RO don't look at RMS first thing they'd probably read the servers forums the look at or whatever

I see nothing rude with his post. If you consider that rude...I don't know how you would deal with common trolls.

there's a chance they'll look at RMS first o.o

and yes, you said there are about 20391230193 things I could done better. I've tried as best as I can, and it seems you have much experience from making a guide. please teach me XD

It was the tone implied by the post which I found to be "jerkish" :-X
