This brings up a point that was chatted about on #blender. It would
seem that not every blender user knows that #blender exists, how to
use it, or the format of communication there.

It was said that it would be really good if the blender.org web site
and really all other blender web sites had a major area to tell people
that this is a good place to come for instant help and that you must
wait for at least an hour to get your answer before giving up. And
that #blender is a great place for newbies to get great instant help.

A happy user base brings in more people and this leads to more beta
testers and more devs.
