Zero, I love ya', but shut the fuck up. I entertain no notion of veteren/noobie staus. I haven't since before any of you knew me, and I still don't. Does that mean I like all of you? Fuck no.
I know you've never condoned the "veteran" status some people have tacked on you, and I wasn't trying to imply that with the comment "Veteran Haven." This is simply an observation, and I know you have nothing to do with it aside from the fact that you wanted to create a better forum set to your own rules. Some people simply have this impression of NH, due to the fact that the "well known veterans" almost exclusively frequent this site... Centrally for the fact that they made it, but a reputation is a reputation. For example, a quote of one of the NHQ forum-goers:
"NHQ has newbies, NH has... Vacc."
I'd like to see the whole veteran crap die, too. It's a silly school yard psychology that creates needless alienation and ass kissing.
As to the conglomeration; I suppose I didn't think enough about staff cuts, I just ignorantly assume we're all similar enough to coexist. It takes an odd person to want to engage in such silly activity as Nerf has been made into on our sites.
In fact, when we were beginning the site, I figured we may as well just make contributions to NH, to make it
the site we wanted (In terms of content), but a lot of the NE staff seemed to prefer a new site... Creative control is an odd quirk.
Sorry for stepping on toes (or other extremeties..), I honestly didn't mean to.Nobody is doing anything with ...there is STILL no SINGLE PLACE a new nerfer can go to get up to speed on all of this shit.
Actually, this is really the only thing I saw in NE, and the only thing I really see it useful for; Compilation of information. Right now, I wouldn't call NE's content realizing this goal, in any way (A lot of content, I guess, but be honest and realistic guys), but the system it's based off of is useful for this purpose. As I said before, NH could support the same thing, with a few changes, but feh... We'll see where this goes. For tyros, I wasn't thinking so much "Newbie Guide" as "Nerf Accronym Index," "Mod Index" (Multiple entries per gun, on the same site), "Materials List" (Detailed info on available materials for mods and homemades), "Techniques" (Simple things lost in the translation in simple words such as 'Glue a 1/2" PVC endcap into the 3/4" PVC' and such.), "Barrel/Ammo Combinations" (With range comparisons for multiple guns), "Member Directory," "Tool Index," and other such karp. Things that might just be useful, and can easily be appended.
I'm starting to lose my attention span, but I'll say this now!... .... ....Ah, yes, any imagined NIC should not be treated as such, otherwise you get these silly inter-member politics, such as the "status" karp that Vacc and Spoon are so vehemently mentioning. I agree with you guys on that, definitely... And most of that other stuff... NE may not be able to make itself useful, but as I mentioned before, "It's worth a shot." Besides, Nitti does
seem to treat it like his pet project, so in the end, it will at least have helped someone learn PHP, if nothing else.
I'm really losing my attention span, and for this, I apologize, but I'd like to sum all this stuff up in a concise format. Multiple Forums = Mostly dumb, but perhaps necessary for individual taste. Content compilation =
. Status = Silly, and unsupported by really any of us here (Simply a side-effect permeated by different generations of members). Vacc & Spoon = Unnecessarily annoyed by so simple thing as an attempt at a positive outcome. We hear you, but we're going to see where this thing goes.
