Well, people tend to think new members are noobs and ignore their first 200 posts and maybe start to take notice.
it depends on your attitude and such, maturity counts, people beleive newer members are noobs.
Depends if you as a person has a noob factor. . .
apparently according to loose cannon i never had noob appeal and walked in as if i wasnt new go me
try to make your mark as soon as you can, once you start to fall behind you tend to be forgotten!
I've only been here for 2 or 3 weeks and i nearly got my 500 posts and nearly third rep block (8 off. .), I dont think i've been called a noob in a post and dunno if ive been looked upon as a noob :S
