Something that might come in useful for n00bs (and some 'oldbies' as well ):
I made a similiar topic like this one in the same forum months ago. The topic is locked now, but you can find some more advice here.
You knew my problem, thanks for the link, cause me not know how to spell .
don't post to run up your post count.
agreed..i haven't been on enough to run my post count up (i have been here since may 02 and i have only 920 or so posts). posts that one word in them or the imfamous "+1" are usually frowned on.
Stay away from people that make a big deal about being oldbies.
But, take help where ever you can get it.
btw, know your role...I'm an oldbie
Yes in my book you are, yet according to a few you'd still be considered a Newbie or a Midbie mainly cause of your registration date .
I'm also a sock.
AmazingB is right about thinking before you post, but I would add, READ before you post. When you venture into a new forum, take the time to see what's already there, open a few threads and reply to other people's threads, and join in existing conversations. Do this for a couple of days at least before you start your own threads. And please don't post new threads on redundant topics. If there's already an existing thread on a topic in the first 2 or 3 pages of the forum, post to that thread instead of starting a new one. I'm telling you this for your own good. If you post a redundant topic, you could get yelled at by other members.
