There's just not a lot of people who idle in chat... let's be positive-minded and hope he found the "host" button, then changed his login so nobody would make fun of him.

Heh, that must be like the tons of people that join the evo channel, then immediately leave or leave before we even have a chance to so much as say "hi".

Most people seem to have little patience in general nowadays. If you don't keep them entertained they instantly quit. I guess it's both amusing and sad at the same time...

You should set the channel topic to ask them that a response may take a bit of time. People have their own weird expectations otherwise.

Damn kids with their goldfish like attention spans :(

Exacerbating this issue is the fact that lobbies are butt ugly and seem to be kind of a turn-off...

You or I would only do different if we wanted 1v1 or if we felt that we should stay for the sake of the host.

brainstorm

NoobHelpBot that does keywrod scanning of sentences in #noob channel and if someone says "can someone help" or w/e, it PMs them giving link to forums and FAQ, or asks them to wait so someone can be around soon to help them

Also, maybe ping or send email or something to registered noobhelpers who are online at the time if the noob wants
