The reason why Bling ended up in a different area is because a new area was added in, and some things were changed. chimmera was taken out, and another area was added, therefore, he didn't end up in chimmera when he logged in.
please don't start talking about things you aren't sure about... maybe you should figure out what's really happening before saying "this and this happened, therefore it's not a newbie friendly mud and you shouldn't come here".
Personally, i think avatar is newbie friendly, though at times the regular "helpers" are busy and/or it's a time when not many players are active. But if you can't take a little change to a game, then maybe this might not be the mud for you.
