well like most mmorpgs smithy you level ..gain items/weapons/armor (clothing) . . . you grab quests in yogurting for money or you can sell stuff . . . The little yogurting Y Logo with the NEW over them are typically where you can level. Just hop on in and choose an area to level in .. if you click on one and see an image in the top area that means there is a room open to join so you can get in the classroom where everyone joins then hit the orange button the left to signal you're ready to start or if you are the leader push it once everyone signals they are ready by having a button next to their names on the list on the right. Or if you want to go solo just create your own room and start quickly.
The NPCs with the Happy face over them are either quest guys or store/auction sorta things. Like when you first appear in Yoi you're next to one of those Y warp things and there is a teddy bear looking NPC there. If you talk to him and choose the 2nd option there will be a lists of quests you can take. As you open up more rooms you can get more quests from certain NPCs so dont think you've done them all. questing is a good way to get money and items.
This will help you on understanding how to figure out how to do quests without knowing japanese.
Basically in the leveling areas after you finish an area and clear it you get your XP and the items you've obtained. You'll then see your report card where at the bottom you'll get a letter grade on how wel you did. You need to get an umm I think it was a B+ on all those levels in order to get to the next grade then you'll be able to use higher level items.
help on clothing.

I'm really liking Yogurting but I can't play right now since I'm on my 12 hour shift days .. have 2 more days of that then I'll be off for 2 where I will eat yogurt like crazy! That other MMO looks sorta interesting Smithy but it doesn't beat schoolgirls
but I'll keep it in mind when the Yogurt spoils
Oh yea check the invisionfree forum areas for yogurting info though it's spread out all over the place -_-;; need a better put together place <_<
and hope to catch you in game
