Self-styled Enforcers, Apologists, And Haters
Posted 11 December 2003 - 04:53 PM
2. Month-old member tells Newbie they're dumb and warns them that an onslaught of hate is headed their way from the vets.
3. Someone who's been here long enough to know better tells newbie off and suggests they go to NHQ.
4. Different month-old member cheers, tells Newbie to read the forums before posting.
You see where this is going, right? It's really fucking lame!
If I see another goddamned thread like that I will personally rip a new asshole for everyone involved.
The vast majority of people here are perfectly respectable members of our little society so lets drop the playground politics bullshit.

I have tried to defend newbies on multiple occasions when some kid flames the newbie just cuz hes new. And each time it didn't really go anywhere. Your post really hit the nail on its head though, so thanks.

I just sent Sharpshooter to NHQ for 50 days. If they don't want him then I guess he's out of luck.
Other people who need to read those links include but are not limited to, Element, Ironman, half 'n half, cheese.
God, I hate you guys. You made me post one of these stupid fucking images.

By the way, what is an appologist?
Not in the game anymore, but it was great while it lasted. Thanks for the great years of fun, NH!

Appologist: Unfortunate typo created by Cxwq and quickly corrected when pointed out to him.

Now there is a great newbie! (Damnit, I screwed up the space key on my laptop)
I'm a fairly new nerfer here, and recently applied for the forums. I've already read all the recommended readings by CXWQ, and I apologize right now for anything stupid I may have done. However, now to my main point; taita, you and other vets may just feel like you're there to be used for help. However, think of it this way; by you being helpful to other new people who want to get into nerfing, you have a chance of creating a "new" dedicated nerfer, hence expanding the community of people who use nerf. Although you may feel like you're used, just remember that you're a part of helping the nerf community grow. After all, I think all of us would like to see more dedicated nerfers. Sure, there could be less of the same repetitive topics, but that's just the crap you have to put up with when you are dealing with a sometimes "younger and more obnoxious" audience. Lastly, I hope I can become a helpful member within this community- let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
I wish all newbies were like you; polite and understanding... But no! They aren't.
Oh well... Funny thing is, I hardly remember taita... He's a vet? Okay... I guess I'm not thinking hard enough... Oh well...

to be quite honest, im not a vet, although being around a few months before the death of NO may prove otherwise, i have witnessed some classic flames, and in the gap after the death of NO, failed to join such forums as this one i am inclined to grace [or not] and the more n00b friendly NHQ, missed out on some of the more important post NO developements [the beast, so what was that really]...
and following this i would like to make 3 points:
- my name is actually tait, its just a stupid name i always use, meaning potato cakes, taita_cakes, get it *laughs profoundly at own joke*... but im not entirely sure whether you yanky devils eat them or "potato scallops" as the brits may no it... my name is scottish and it means cheerful...
- if any doubted cxwq's new n00b orientation program, here is the proof, i only hope there are many more newbs like this guy here....
- this is one of the infamous n00b or newb posts, in my opinion a n00b is a l33+ for a completely annoying idiotic newbie, and a newb represents a rather normal newbie, thats my personal opinion, thats what i mean, deal with it....
