I'm not gonna knock you for trying, but it's been done before.
Main issue is that not everyone will browse the forum first or even want to lurk for a week before posting. In those cases, responses pointing out the same question has been asked frequently won't be seen anyway and the person will still post away.
I think at this point, most ignore it or we all just take turns replying to keep things from being too tedious.
Anyway, the posts linked above should answer most questions and you'll probably see a lot of the same people with the same replies. In short: the linkshell you join is far more important than your server. Most invites posted on the forum are open to all, so send a PM to those people and join one of them.
Also, we prefer to use something other than the term toon such as "character", for future reference. Minor, yes, but I have to point it out.
