I recently started/returned about 2 weeks ago. I was searching for a server/ls like yourself and came across a thread buried below somewhere. Look no further than this thread whether it is in this server or another.
The shell that I am currently in is great. It has a good population of lvl 99 players who are very willing to help. If you're looking for a fun, social, interactive, and friendly LS this is it. Shoot me a /tell in game to Raynman so we can chat and get you a pearl.
Stay tuned, I will add more contact names later.
