Post Forced, Restrictive, & Interactive Tutorial
The new tutorial would be very similar to the early parts of the current tutorial in the sense that it will not proceed to the next task until you've completed the current task. However, in this tutorial it will block out certain actions until you've completed the task. For example when you first start up you're told to press W to thrust, all other controls would be locked except for W or Up Arrow.

This tutorial might be annoying for people creating alts, so this tutorial would be forced on new accounts, and it would not play on accounts with characters over a certain level. Tutorials can also be rather annoying for new players too, so the tutorial would be about 30 seconds for a seasoned gamer, and maybe a minute or two long for a casual gamer.

In addition to this we want to add a permanent help button that brings up a help dialogue with access to the website tutorial, and other resources on the website.

The existing tutorial bot would be pruned since it is filled with a lot of unneeded text, and the tutorial would be text-only (remove the bot lady's voice).

But I like the bot lady's voice!

Do not remove lady's voice and unneeded text from tutorial, please. I do like them (i.e. lady's voice and unneeded text). Better make them an option or something.
