If you had spent ten years learning French and then went too Russia, your expierence in French owuld only help a little.

If you stick by whatever you learned on other boards you probably won't last.

Lesson #1: When making polls, try to keep the options short and concise, because when you don't Ezboards gets all lame and extends the width of the page to really annoying proportions.

Other than that? Meh. Welcome aboard, don't step in the poo.

Gotta love that shortened spelling!

'new' - 'b'. <p>

A more xenophobic cult of elitest spelling-nazis there never was. But they only hate because they care. Image

Seriosuly though; people hereabouts tend to be merciless with newbs who don't listen to and follow up advice. That's probably the only prerequisite to hanging out here. <p>---

What Mech'X said.

Personally, I don't really view newcomers as "newbs". Rookies only become "newbies" through idiocy and stubbornness. As long as you're willing to adapt to the standards of the communnity and actually listen to other people, you're cool with me. <p><div style="text-align:center">Image</div></p>

Hi. I'm an example of someone who's been at RPGWW a long time, yet is still a newbie. I'm known as a "permanewb," and I've earned the title!

See, everyone hates me here. They obviously must hate me because they're antinewb, and can't appreciate my totally awesome personality (and band! Man, we're so rocking that we can ignore it when everyone tells us our music sucks ass).

Yeah, almost everytime I post here I get people yelling at me for opening my dumb mouth. You would wonder why I stick around. Well, the truth is...

Image

So take my advice. If you're like me, and want to be mocked mercilessly because you're a moron, then stick around!

W don't hate you because you're a newbie, we hate you for a completely different reason. <p><div style="text-align:center">

Now now, we only hate you because you're being dumb, not because you're a "new"

I don't find newbies annoying. I find most *people* annoying.

And newbies are people too. <p>From the GURPS Magic sourcebook:

When creating demons, the GM should not be bound by believablility or common sense.</p>

I am terribly amused by Dia's edit. As I'm sure are some other people. <p><div style="text-align:center">Image</div></p>

As evidenced by my post total, I'm not a big poster here.

But I've been around for awhile.
