Smile Being a Newbie...

As sad as it may sound, being a Newbie is harder than you can imagine.

I posted one thread about two months ago, and, I even got replies on that one. It´s so cool! But I have to tell you, that it´s so hard to start up with something, if you aren´t into forums and stuff that much as, I suppose, most people are, that are hangin´ around here.

As a Newbie you always have to face the fact, that your posts can be kind of displaced, when you aren´t a probe droid sort of user or something like that.

Well, thats basicly all. I hope you enjoyed reading it and that it didn´t sound to jerky...

I´m looking forward to read any replys.

Bye



Yes, I know. I´ll never type the "o" button one time too often anymore!

Its the same with me and the samnmax forum, and the escapeMI forum. I think I even got a couple of them to hate me, without even trying.


Jolly good.

Gexx: I listen to you regularly!! If not for your typing voice, I know not what I'd do!

On the topic of Newbidity: I, too, am a newbie. Let me share the secrets I've acrued: Never post on topic, as it just pisses the Regulars off. They prefer deep, insightful tangents. Post those! They will then view your tangents and choose carefully and judiciously whether or not to respond. Of course, they'll eventually begin posting a response, start considering again, then suddenly stop to take a breather from typing. After a few minutes break, they'll forget about posting all together and look up "dangerous facts" on google. Why do they do this?
Because they hate us. As a matter of fact, I think they're plotting our demise. Tricking us into posting sinister posts, like this one, so we'll be banned. So we, in our turn, should plot. E-mail me privately!

"Mad People,
But I Don't want to
go amongst Mad people."

"You can't help it,
we're all Mad Here!"


start telling your friends you
were up late at night talking
to an eggplant, and we will see
who is considered Crazy.

Me I am certifyably committed,
or was it that I should be Commited.

five exclamation marks,
the sign of someone
truely insane!!!!!

hey newbie,
do you ever think fish
get tired of eating seafood?

if you really want to be
liked around here two small things.

1)whenever the name Lupe
is mentioned you cringe.

2)you agree with Gendo and go on
great rants and tirades about
how much you dislike Pocky!!!!!

sorry Isis

When you say "pocky" I'm sure you mean: "Snack food of choice for Satan, Hitler and Bill Gates." Do you not?


Jolly good.

Thanks for responding so plentyful! It´s great to hear that there are other people quite like me, that suffer of the weird circumstances, that you have to face, if you are trying to make as much people as possible responding to your thread.


Yes, I know. I´ll never type the "o" button one time too often anymore!

Little piece of advice, Oh New One...

Don't mention the name of Manny's coatcheck girl in Rubacava...

It scares the locals...


That Neko Punk Gurl you keep seeing everywhere? Yeah, that's me! BOO!

Do what? Is this about LUPE? Huh? You know, LUPE? Remember LUPE? I'm not going to mention LUPE though, because I know how much the name LUPE scares you. So you don't have to worry about me mentioning LUPE. Am I a good friend or what?

LUPE!!


Jolly good.

my spider senses are tingling
I feel that if I say the "L" word
one more time I am going to be banned
from the forum for good.
But I agree with Isis
and we shall have to
private message one another
and speak of this coat check girl
in order to appease the locals

Redwing, if you play your cards right, you can get GF for under $20. Go play it, we'd love to have you stick around.
