15. You can get help
When you can't figure out how to do a quest, you can send a message on the main channel for help or search a number of websites. In real life if you can't figure out how to do something, tough, you have to figure it out - only once in a while can someone offer a quick tip that makes it all clear.
16. No status reports
You will get to something or you won't, but you don't have to send mail to anyone letting them know when you'll be done. :)
