Sadly I only recognize a few names on the front page and the forums are changing to get ready for the newb war that’s coming when JA comes out. Is this the end of the calm cool swamp.

Were the forum this bad when JO came out....?

Well, I wasnt around when JA came out, but, June 2002 was when alot of n00bs came around, like me.....annd I expected alot more people woulda came to lf thiis summer, but I guess I was wrong. I guess JA will brighten up the forums with n00bs?

*is rolled out of thread by groovy* What he said.

The memories of the post-JK2-apocalypse are still fresh in my mind :p

Many a good member was lost to their terror =/

(And where is digl, dammit?! He was around a couple of months ago and said he'd be here more often :( ...And then there are all the others... Denise, ed_silvergun, Krayt, Canoli, the list goes on ='( )


Most of us who stuck around through last time will still be here once this one's over, though... Occasionally ruing the fact that we can't bring ourselves to leave ;p

well I have successfully and unintentionally gotten a thread locked recently, like I always used to. Want me to do it more guys????

And I think when we were all noobs we scared all those other people away. I believe teh new noobs will do the same to us...well not me, I'll scare em back!:p

If I was an admin I'd rename this thread ATTACK OF THE NEWBIES!


but I'm not. Seriously...all this talk is starting to remind me of the way people act about SARS!

$am: Um. Yes. ;)

Prepare for the influx, people. Batten down the hatches, it's gonna be bad ;)

Basically, what Rhett said. :D

Although...JA is probably not as highly anticipated as JKII...probably...So maybe it won't be as bad...maybe ;)

Wow, Reclaimer! You change your avatar A LOT. Glad to see you've changed.

What's wrong with the newbs. They need a place to go to, and this is the place. And this ain't that bad considered when JO first came out!

Nothing's wrong...it's just that we're expected a massive influx of people, which is disorienting enough as it is - and alot of those people will likely be trolls, spammers, flamers, and other unpleasant sorts ^^

Nothing wrong with being a newbie, of course! =)

'Course not.

Why, even old Reddy here was one once!

Ah, well, if there is enough Mods when the rush gets here, what can go wrong? everything...

So, we could get a ton of newbies and something might break out.......*takes out his lightsaber and random weapons of mass destruction*...........in other words: BRING IT ON! I'M READY 4 'EM!!!!!!! LOL

Now then, only time will tell if JA will get new ducks to flock to our neck of the woods. We should be prepared if so. There's gonna be a hot time in the old town after release, that's 4 sure! :p

I wouldn't go that far. Yes, you do get an overabundence of new people, but you also meet some interesting people that happen to discover the forums by being interested in the game. Some of my favorite people here, joined late last summer, way after the release of JO. Eventually the annoying people get boared and go away, and the cool poeple stick around. As far as the end of "The Swamp?" not on your life. Not anytime soon, not as long as I'm around. ;)

well, when i registered, it was only for the editing forums cause i really wanted to know how to make sabers. Sadly i had to quit posting at, like, 400 cause school started and i had NO time for editing. Then i came back, like, 2 months ago, and i plan on staying foreva :D

well, not to judge anyone, but i cant think of any recent newbies to these forums that have actually contributed. A few names come to mind. Ill just give the first letter of each. You decide :p

fine, im a n00b but, im not

my old account that got deleted was nerd_annhilator (sp?)

I hadn't gone on the forums for a long time because my computer got a virus and mostly destroyed the hardrive, so I got it fixed, but then my account wouldn't work, I i totally gave up an just looked around on the forums without being signed in. but now.. I works. yay!:D

08-14-2003, 01:49 PM
well IMO i think the swamp could do with a couple more 'in-house' mods if it really is gonna be that bad.
darky's great and probably more sexy than any human deserves to be ( :D ) but he is only one man.
i know the place is lurking with supers, i just think it might be better if there was more of a 'swamp mod team', if you know what i mean :)

:D Naw, joking, I know what you mean. (btw, is there a certain point where you're not considered a newbie by your peers?)

Well, thanks for the warning, guys, I'd better brace myself. It sounds pretty bad. I'll hang on though, through thick and thin!

Nah, I don't mind SOME of you... :p

Some noobs (anyone with a 2003 registration date and or Decemeber 2002 date is a noob to me) are cool, Semicolon for example. And, The Cheat. And..... Thrackan Solo..... and..... :D

same here, the Helm's deep thing is to keep those guys out, we still take refugees, AKA noobs that come here honestly, for information, and stay here not to spam. INCOMING *Giant can of spam is shot from catapult outside* SHOOT IT DOWN!!!!

After looking around the forums, I realised what $am was talking about. Some newbies post really stupid questions.

yeah it can get really annoying and it is just a waste of time because we think they have something somewhat intelligent to add to the forums but they actually dont and are adding pointless data to it instead
