"Unrestricting" a skill simply means that if you were restricted in it before, you can now get to Basic. It never increases your maximum possible level in a skill beyond Basic. Wooble (talk) 14:29, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Got it -- thanks very much. Mannc (talk) 14:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

this use of "unrestricted" to mean "not Restricted" instead of the more usual "without restrictions" gets every single new player every time. perhaps a change of terminology is called for. the thought that "this is broken" will bring people here, though, and by the time you reach it it's unlikely to cause you to walk away. so it's not really bad as such... -- 13:19, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
