Help? (in New players)

I'm new to this game... But I can't seem to proceed with the tutorial... Every time I try to click "weapons", it says there's a server error... Did I do something wrong? What should I do now?

What? Is this how newbies are treated in this game? I think I made a wrong choice then.

TAE, don't be like that.

Are you going to that page through Businesses on the left, then weapons, or is there a link on the bottom of the page that should take you directly to it?

If you haven't already, try going to it through Businesses -> Weapons. If that doesn't work, I'm sure somebody will post a link to the store that might help you, as I have to go to school now. :)

I'm doing whatever that blue line of words say. I assume thats the tutorial. And I did go through it using the Business>>Weapons. I can't even see any other links below. I always shows this

Server Error

The requested URL cannot be accessed due to a system error on this server.

I just logged in as you, and I'm getting the same error. I'll ask Jon to look into it.

Well, thanks, whoever Jon is. The descriptions look interesting and I don't want to quit without trying this game out...

=O... He's GOD?

For all intents and purposes here, yes, he would be.
Beware tho, you'll run into quite a few other people who think THEY are tho... but they're not. :p

Welcome to the game, econ wasn't trying to be mean, he just ended up that way...

We are currently experiencing a series of upgrades to the look of CB, which is how you ended up with that error, it's not a normal everyday thing, so don't worry about that.

I hope you give our little mad house a shot!

Ah well, it works fine now, though I didn't go through with the tutorial. I spent my time reading through all the help pages though, and it is quite interesting...
