I want to complain about this probulater guy. He makes way too many threads(most of them completely pointless) and he won't stop! It's so annoying!

Oh Man, you people took my idea for a complaint.
There have recently been a lot of new Peelers who seem to think they are God's gift to the message board. They are writing absolute crap and creating unnecessary topics.
I am not to sure about how to solve the problem, but these Noob's have to be stopped

Oooh Time for the Final solution Again  big grin

But They are always noobs that come with bad habits. They shape up. PEEL was probably linked to another message board again.

I think the best way to solve this problem is if we all get together with a rousing chorus of "Nobody cares! Nobody Cares! Nobody, nobody, nobody caaaares!"  See the Anthology of Interest II (i think) commentary if you have no idea what I am talking about.

Back to the Spybot: Search and Destroy thing, it won't let me download anything with it on, and if I turn it back on, it deletes it.  If you have AOL, just use the check-up thing.  I had 14 ad/spyware softwares on my computer.  And those real n00bs are making us Bending Units look bad, when we, and by we I mean I, am fully aware of the rules 'n' stuff 'n' junk.

I'd like to complain that some people equate their rank with having true PEEL experience.

Bending Unit is great and all, but Asylum-Fry got that in, what, 3 hours? The term 'n00b' is subjective, and the fact that futuramafreak (whose messages I keep clicking on expecting to see a post by Randi) has only been here two months and keeps asking ridiculous questions/opening up threads is more than a little bit wavering on the 'n00b' side to me.

I only ask the questions because I'm lazy.  And it's not like I'm forcing people to answer them.  It's all choice.  Well, maybe some pity, but mostly choice.  It says in aslate's FAQ that people Bending Unit and under are considered n00bs.  That shouldn't be because n00b should be a term used for people who don't know the rules and whatever.  Like Probulater.  And not me.  And I stopped creating new threads for questions and now post all of them in the same thread, and anybody can ask there.

The term n00b orignally comes from newbie.  Which means you are new.  You joined in February 2004 and compared to most regulars on this board you are still new.  As am I.  Stop obsessing over this and start posting things of quality and you will be accepted.

I don't know if i put it on the FAQ, but n00bs are often "identified" by three critera:
Registration Date
Post Number
Overall PEELer Competence
Basically, if you're new, have few posts or act like a total git, you'll be called a n00b. If you don't know what is considered basic info by that PEELer they may call you a n00b. The term n00b isn't really defined, it's more of what each person considers it to be.

Me too. It's sunny, which means I don't have an excuse for sitting indoors typing messages.


FuturamaFreak: It's a bit of a catch-22 - if you post questions in the Complaints thread asking not be to considered a n00b, people are going to start considering you a n00b for asking that question   smile

I've only been here since March 2nd and I feel like I fit in just fine, though I'm still a n00bz0r of the highest order. I wonder if your attitude has something to do with it...hopefully that's not the same as competence.

You've really only been here a month? Wow. I wouldn't class you as a n00b.

I think it's more attitude.

I think it's a combination of competence and attitude, although attitude is usually a worse problem.

From the perspective of competence, some people join up not having a clue how a message board works, which leads to rookie mistakes like double posting and "question" threads (What do those stars mean, how do I change my avatar etc).  But once they're been here a few weeks, they pick stuff up and these rookie mistakes gradually disappear.

But a lot of people join PEEL with an attitude problem.  So paraphrase a recent post, they think they're God's gift to the board, and can't understand why the eight threads they've just opened have all been closed.  So they open more threads asking why the originals were closed, leaning on the Caps Lock and using "finger" smilies to emphasise their point.

Then there's the SuperFry types who ignore any form of advice/criticism, and can linger for months acting like someone who's only been here a week.

In all the above cases, the people involved should've lurked longer before becoming an active member.  I freely admit that I should've lurked for at least another few weeks before I registered, it might've saved a lot of hassle.

Also high on the list are the people that join PEEL with an "agenda".  You'll got the nOObs who have the latest foolproof method of getting Futurama recommissioned, and seem oblivious to everyone else's lack of enthusiasm.  And you have the Alan Cresswell type who don't actually give a shit about Futurama, they just want to push their own pet topics.

@ pcc fred.

Do you ever stop bitching?

I've only been here for 2months and I still feel like zoidberg, ignored....

As for the n00bs, I find the ones who are obviously not good at this net malarky are the ones that get screamed at, maybe there should be a set of rules of etiquette?  A better bedside manner from the mods and experienced users as I find its usually there arrogence which causes flame wars rather than sensible disagreement or a friendly wave in the right direction.
I remember getting banned last year because of some arse being a tit, fair enough I should've read the rules but some friendly advice wouldn't have gone amiss.
So now I know not to create pointless threads and to spam no matter how tempting.

Even now I'm going off topic so my complaint? Some manners from various users with regards to "n00bs" please.

If you want the experienced users on the board to treat you better it's probably not the wisest idea to descrbie tham as arrogant, call someone else a tit and blame them for your getting banned.  Now that's what I call bitching.

As it so happens quite a few PEELers do give newbies helpful advice and pointers.  But like I said, some nOObs just ignore any advice they're given and carry on making the same mistakes.

By the way Fred that was my post that you paraphrased.
I don't think you're bitching at all. It is a very valid complaint. I have only been here for 6 months, but I have never had any problems. I only post, when necessary, and if I don't get noticed than that's unfortuneate.
Nerdlingus, you cannot just turn up and expect people to love you. Give it some time. You're obviously posting a fair bit so just be patient.

Awww don't feel bad....I always read your posts because you actually have something to say.....

If your posts make sense, have good spelling and are not spam then people will read them....just because they don't reply doesn't mean you are being ignored.... smile

So how should I describe them being arrogent without getting a lashing back?

As for the blaming someone else for getting banned, well...what can I say eh?   wink

@Gleno : cheers man!

I would say I had an attitude problem when I first came here. Especially because I did no lurking at all, it was just sign up, post shit. I don't think I started any threads early on but I sure did give people problems.

God damnit, I'm talking about stuff that happened a month and a half ago like it was years ago...

I would also like to note that I gladly have a swearing problem.

Just in case anyone thinks I went overboard with my complaint earlier, this is what I mean by a PEELer who won't accept advice or criticism.
