i'm not a n00b anymore, but I'm not an old-timer, either. I've made some observations that you can take or leave.

the reasonable n00b's who want to play nice are pretty easy to spot, and you know who you are. so be patient - unfortunately the nice ones walked into the room at the same time as the others, so just have fun, and please don't feed the trolls. As long as you're intelligent, civil, and don't whine, you'll do fine, and everything will sort itself out.

other tiny princess suggestions for endearing oneself as a n00b:

1. Read the previous posts in a thread to get the gist. If it's image association, for instance, post images, not chatter.

2. Read the rules of the thread. If you break the rules, it had better be pretty funny. If you don't understand the rules of "Ask a question, give an answer" or don't know how to embed a youtube video, then pm me or - gee, just about anybody. I'm very nice and I don't bite.

3. Good manners are never a bad way to go. If your mother never taught you any, then this is a good place to learn some. Then you can take your new-found knowledge somewhere else and be glad you're not the president of some country.

4.Before starting a new thread and pushing a popular one to page two (so annoying!) try posting in existing threads. The archives are so huge and rich, you'll probably find an identical subject that just needs bumping if you do a little research.

5. Ze is the god of the internet as far as we're concerned, and we're here because of his awesomeness and generosity. Go ahead and keep calling him "Frank" - please. So much easier than branding you on the forehead...

6. The H.A.T.E. rule comes in handy - never post when you are
High, Angry,Tired or - I can't remember the last one - Emotional? That's redundant with Angry, isn't it??????????? Drunken posting is sooo amusing, however. So is posting when you're high, but - okay let's just forget - did you say something? wait. what is everyone takling about. wer did everybodyu go?

7. Cut everybody a giant break before you decide to get offended. You don't know everyone's story. I sure don't. Everybody can sound like an asshole at one point or another - it's text. Read back posts before you decide you know where someone is coming from. Maybe somebody's dog just died - cut them some slack.Breathe.
Assume the best and be pleasant and just confirm your doubts in a pm or something. In fact, take all your feuds to PM and don't make the whole board read it. It's really unpleasant,and interrupts the flow of funkaliciousness and fun-having.

8. Current Events is not Debate Hall, but someone correct me if I'm wrong. I've always thought of it as a the water fountain to go catch up on what's new and to read some observations. At least, I used to. What I saw there yesterday for the first time was like watching a smelly, angry gorilla burst into someone's nice Canadian living room and start randomly spraying his scent on the doilies. If the forum ever comes back you will generally find that ugly name-calling and casting personal aspersions does not qualify as debate, and no one knows what to do with you. You may indeed have a good heart. All I can say is it's too bad that someone has to tell us that, because at that point it's probably too late.

9. I don't want to buy your cheap crappy t-shirts from cafepress. I sell stuff to make extra money too, but I don't cram it down people's throats on this board. I don't care how nice you are. It's really tacky. Would you bring Amway catalogs to a party? Wait, Amway people are a bad example...



Just IMHO. Suggestions only. Writing this made me cranky, so sorry about the tone. Time to go smoke some more crack...
...ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Look, I think you're a very intelligent guy, with great knowledge of mans history, and the politics around the world.

I also know, that you do alot of research and get involved in discussion of world events. Unregistering is like cutting off your own nose to spite your face. You should consider this as just another avenue of expression on the net. Duke is already speaking of returning once his ban is lifted, and perhaps finding a better niche here.

You, like I, have never tried to be a member of the 'gang' from ICQ. Don't limit yourself now.

Now you DEFiNITELY, shouldn't post, Brynn!

Btw, do we ever actually get any drunk posting? Or is it just a bunch of us *stumbling* around in the Pub Thread pretending to be inebriated?

Hey, either way it's funny!

But seriously, great post. Kudos to you.

Occasionally, some drunk posting goes on.

This coming from the same person that said that you know who could be reasoned with. Just lots of double speak from Bug man.
