I'm gonna say no.

Half the people that sign up, do it because it sounds fun, they post once and never come back. They don't even read the replies.

If you need to be "adopted" on a forum you don't need to be on THIS forum.

If they can't get through the initiation, then they don't belong here anyway. Are you PMSing or something Invader? You seem very sensitive and emotional lately.

I adopted a dog once. It got aten by bigger, meaner dogs.

Sorry n00bs, you are on your own. Study us, learn us, join us. But we all had to be new, and we all had to take shit for a good three months or three hundred posts. Deal.:rolleyes:

I barely made it past 200 posts, and I'm still a tiny bit known around these parts.

The St.Anger sucess story; If I can do it, you can do it too!

I'd rather have an ounce of respect and not be known by many than just be known for being hated.

I don't remember taking shit. I think I had a shit shield on or something. But then again, if you can dish it, you could take it. Maybe shit just slides off me? Hmmm..../me ponders shit.

Oh, and St. Anger, I wouldn't count our chickens. You're still a noobie boobie.

After climbing up a mountain covered in ice while having shit poured on my face in buckets to get to whatever position I have at this forum, I feel bitter about the idea of adopting new people and giving them the easy way in.

eh as a noob, you have to show em what your made of. i had a so so start, well i think i'm still so so, but every now and then i say something smart. usually happens when the planets aline. i earned a couple peoples respect along the way. as a noob alls you can do is ride it out, dish it, deal it and stand your ground. if you come in guns a blazing, your usually gone fast. come in quietly, read losts of posts, slowly build a posting feel, then start shooting off every now and then, your chances are a bit better. BCB i think thats what you did. some people come in, can hold their own, can dish and take it, and be cool with people are rare. so don't think you can run into a community and build a rep right away. stick it out and you'll earn people respect.

Is posting on the internet really so hard that you need a mentor? If so, I'd suggest selling your computer and killing yourself.

Que? call me stupid, but whats a noob? anything like a boob?
newb = newbie, or new person.

noob = annoying new person.

boob = tits.

they are all the same.
