why is it that every time i read a topic there is always someone /someppl really ripping in to others about being inexpreianced and just want to learn?

that kind of elitest attitude really gets to me.

i mean....c'mon, we were all noObs once.....i myself believe i've made the leap into some kind of respectability......but only after screwing up two XB's due to not finding the support that i know most of you can give.

I'm not saying all of you are like this but i find a lot are.

there is a general good sense of community here...more than most others...and i wouldn't like to see it go down the same road as them.

i don't mean to offend anyone but i felt i needed to say something.

thx 4 your time.

eX.

I try not to lose my temper and dont believe i have here, but defenatly have on other forums fromt iem to time.


It becomes annoying when people ask a question that is covered in countless stickys and on a few occasions even in the post just below theres biggrin.gif


that is my main gripe jester.gif

other than that, I am by no means a expert, and I never ever want to be "elite" but I try and help where I can.

i know it can be annoying and i know it can piss people off....its just the fact that i've read on numerous occasions that they are basically the scum of the earth and i don't think thats the way to go about things...

Any question a "noOb" has probably been answered many times before, the attitiude comes from people who don't take the time to search for answers of questions they have. I picked all of this up on my own, it's no that hard. If you don't like the attitude, just don't use the forum, it's that simple.

<rant>
see, people dont rip into all noobs

Noobs that follow common sense rules like:
Use the search button
Post in the right fourm
Dont ask about piracy
Use proper spelling and sentence structure

Dont get ripped into

Noobs that:
Ask stupid questions
Post in the wrong forum with a stupid question
Ask where to download games/burn rented game
Cant spell or use excessive 1337 and slang

Get ripped into

You fall into the catagories of:
Ask stupid questions
Post in the wrong forum
and cant spell/sentence structure

Therefore, expect to get ripped into.
