I cant speak for other space aliens, but the way I gots so Xlobby smart is by answering stupid questions on the forum. j/k I think the way you become expert at XL is by understanding the theory, the parameters it is designed in, setting out to achieve a goal, learning the limitations and asking questions. It doesnt hurt to have been around through most of its evolution. When Steven was around he used to implement features for us per request, its easy to know of a feature when its your idea in the first place.
I know there are a lot of holes left in the understanding of Xlobby. Alot of Xlobby info was lost in the server crash/hijacking 2 years ago, unfortunately when you look its simply not there, us old timers remember the answers and take things for granted. Searching the forum does not turn up very specific results, well not for me anyway. All I can say when I started XL there was no Skinning Guide, Event Sheet, nor documents by Baddabing, or Jowaldo. You are in a better place now than we were.
There is actually very little documentation on this program considering the # of board members. I could write more, however I alway hope that some other member would step up and document somethings we all know are missing. I refuse to document it all, I feel Ive given my share, it does me no good anyway, I know the stuff.
Anyway, to answer your questions: No there is no University in Roswell, its in Canada. Its not really a University rather a convent where you let your Wife and Kids go and devote all your time to contemplating the grand theories of Xlobby. Yes we all learn by reading posts and trial and error.
