I find it kinda funny how after the store got inflated, there is about 40 posts a day, before now, there was about 100 or so in the jediknightii.net forums. Its like all of the n00bs that were here left once the store went. But I just thought that was intresting. Ah, but at least the natives are still here, to help bring back the life to this place. It should never die.

apparently a newb is a newbie... a n00b is someone who smurfs, and picks and beats up on newbies and stuff like that.

I would consider myself a native. Maybe no one else would.:D But I think that if you post here and stick with the swamp no matter what happends, you're a native.

Ah yes, but he claims to be a native swampie, Since the swamp was created on May 31st 2001 then a 2000er can't be a native swampie :D

......But he still not native :D

Hmmmn, maybe its because the FTF was closed. Not to brag or anything. But the FTF was the main source of posting for n00bs. Also a weird fact. A while back in December. We all wanted the noobs and or trolls to go away. Now its come back in our face, and we need them more then ever:) . Come back noobs. Come back:D

Hmmn, maybe if we open the FTF, and hve a different discusion topic in it. Or maybe I can include my new idea for the upcoming mod. Yeah. It would attract noobs since they see a olace that is helpful and has lots of posts. Thn they go in in search of help. And since so many people are there they will go to try and get popular. Im takin this to the top of the staff. I think it would increase the amount of daily posts in the Swamp:)

I joined in september 2002 so would that make me a newb? I don't consider myslef a newb I mean I speak good grammer most of the time (just don't spell it righ:D) and I help people out on the mapping forums.

I completely agree with skateboy. If you stick with the swamp through thick and thin, no matter what changes happen, you're a native.

PS Is it just me, or did this go from a small notice thread to a serious discussion thread?

If all they were here for was the store and to spam up the place to get glowy names and sig pics etc, then good riddance.

Iam still here :D

When i first registered back in the day, i was on for probly 3 months, but i was pretty much doing editing work in the Editing Forum. Then school started and i couldn't post nearly as much, but i did finish my saber pack :D Anyway, i will be around alot longer since my family got another computer and the Internet connection on it is soo much better than before :p

07-15-2003, 04:09 PM
Yeah, I'm still here too.
But the whole forum seems on a bit of a downer of late, what with the points system being abused, being scrapped, people gloating at it being scrapped, people moaning at it being scrapped. There just don't seem to be many topics I want to post on over the last week or so.
*sigh*

Anyway, I got a sig pic, I was happy.
I've still got a sig pic, I'm still happy.
The rest doesn't really bother me much.
And I still think you guys are great :D

anyway, i still find time to post here and EB so everythings on the up-n-up here :D

Lil Killa
07-16-2003, 02:41 AM
Yeah I think getting rid of the store got rid of most of the newbs so I guess since I'm still here I'm a native now? I love the swamp:D I don't care if i'm a native I'll just be a frog:p (hey I'm gonna make my custom title thing that:D)

I wonder if I'm still a newb, anyone care to say Ay or Nay (Yes or No).

Azrael
07-16-2003, 08:08 AM
Well, if you are, I am, too. 'Course, we probably are with posts like these.:D

Edit: Oh, Christ, my custom title's gone. Now I'm a freaking ewok. How many posts to I need to change that?

Omikron
07-16-2003, 08:33 AM
They have removed the store, so I don't think you can get it back again, though I may be wrong.

Darklighter
07-16-2003, 08:41 AM
You need 1000 posts to get a custom title. Just like it was before the Store.

Oh, and about the newb question...I'll just say, your post count does not define your "newbiness";)

That's very true, but you are somewhat considered a "noobie" when you first get here. Then once you get maybe 100 posts, you are part of the family :D

True, but user posts doesn't equal quality members. Some people might be forum veterans and can come to a new place and instantly fit in. Others might have 1000+ posts because of spamming and are no less a newb than when they first registered (2 days earlier, lol).



People who treat people like newbs are the real problem. They probably were picked on (either here or in real life) and just want to vent a little by putting other people down. Bah! What a waste of time. A new guy will look up to people that set good examples.

Forum veterans Spam = new guys spam.
Forum vets set good example = new guys do the same.


PS: A guy with 600+ posts was once flaming a guy with 5 posts calling him an "idiot" and "stfu! You don't know anything about JO" the guy being called a newb was actually a dev on the JO team. The other guy was banned. :eek: :)
