How do I automatically add new players to an in-game channel such as \'help\' or \'newbie\'?

I\'m only asking about this because I keep misplacing the documentation that I get from the helpful folks on the M*U*S*H +softcode channel.
From what I remember though, I had to:
1. create an object and set it in the room where new players connect,
2. set that object wizard,
3. set a command on that object to add the new player to \'help\' or \'newbie\',
3. set the @aconnect on the room to trigger the command on the object.
Is this correct because I can\'t seem to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Skaven

You\'re on the right track.
The easiest way is to @set the room new players are created in (#0 by default) Wizard and add an @aconnect to it that does a \'@channel/on Newbie=%#\'.
If the room isn\'t Wizard, I don\'t think it can trigger anything on an object that is.
