- The Quick Tour should be straightforward enough so that users who do not speak English natively can understand it
- The Quick Tour should be concise - it should take no more than 2 minutes to process everything for the average user
- The Quick Tour should present the information in a creative way that will encourage users to go through and learn from it
- The Quick Tour should touch on the following aspects at the minimum (but it may be more than that)
- TibiaQA is not a regular forum
- No chit-chat, no discussions - just questions, and answers
- Well-formulated questions are important since they will likely be read by thousands of other users
- Not all question types are well suited for TibiaQA
- The importance of voting
- Votes indicate usefulness/correctness of the posts
- Up-votes move answers up so better answers are displayed first
- Votes increase user reputation points what in consequence unlocks more moderation privileges for them

- Silver Trophy of Excellence + Hero's Medal + Yellow Rose + 30 TibiaQA reputation points
- Bronze Trophy of Excellence + Badge of Glory + Unicorn Figurine + 15 TibiaQA reputation points
