Channel 4 is the guest help channel. Admins (see help adm_info) and other
helpful, knowledgeable users monitor channel 4 and are ready to assist you.

  tell 4 I have a question about ...   [this sends the message to channel 4]

 2. Watch your screen for a response. You may be contacted directly (in a
    personal tell) or through channel 4 itself (so everyone can listen to the
    discussion and help out).

 3. If you want to continue talking on channel 4, type:

  tell 4 <message>                     [everyone on channel 4 will hear you]

 4. When you are done being helped, you can either stay on channel 4, in
    order to help others and/or learn from their questions, or turn off
    channel 4 by typing:

  -chan 4                              [this will set channel 4 off for you]
