Though bushpig didn't find his answer in another thread. The concept of "search other threads since it's been explained before" could be used on quite a few threads (surplus xp, rants/complaints, or computer related questions). So I kind of understand bushpig's response since some people are new to the forums (and many of us can't search since we're not Premium Members) and quite a few pages of the forums consist of one of the following topics:
1)Beta Keys being reallocated
2)Computer Build questions
4)Surplus XP (though this fits into the rants/complaints section for the most part)
So finding a topic that explains in detail about leves can take more time than a simply creating a new one and getting the answer directly. That topic can then be buried under the pages of other topics answered. Remember, a lot of us are trying to get every bit of information possible. And some are extremely new to the world of FFXIV, so they won't know as much as those that are web crawling for every little bit of information possible. So please be a little less holier-than-thou and a little more receptive to giving direct answers.
And this isn't directed specifically at anyone in here, but it seems the more new people we get asking questions and showing interest in the game, the more people start getting rather snobby about "zomg how didn't you know that because it's such an old topic" information. It'd also be helpful to just point them towards the wiki's or other threads instead of making backhanded comments.
