I finally joined today after scoping out for awhile, I've read the guildes as well as the rules and regulations, but there were a few things I noticed that noobs got burnt at the stake for.

Just thought I'd share.

1. Don't step toes. (at least for awhile)
If you disagree, present your opinion so you don't piss people off.
If people see that you are new, they will be especially critical to guide you along the path to eventual wtfdom, or bitch you out.

2. Be careful of the hidden old threads.
The guides say not to rez old threads, but there are a few ways to do this involuntarily.
Just because some tard rezzed a dead thread doesn't mean you have to follow suit. Even if it's in the Latest Posts section of the forum, check the date in the top left corner of the first post. (Sorry if this is common sense, it took my slow ass awhile to find) Additionally, the related posts at the bottom of the page are most likely old threads. Do not reply to them.

3. Post in the most appropriate section.
If you take a quick look at the forum list and decide to spill, your post may be in the wrong section. Well, not necessarily the wrong section, but there may be a more appropriate section for the subject of your post.

I hope this helped some people. I know it sounds like common sense, but these things took me awhile to figure out.

WTFers, please help out the noobs (myself included) by adding onto this list.

Thanks. :thumbsup:

4. If you're a 'noob' don't make 'noob tips' threads.


This is the Welcome Wagon though, so welcome to the site.
