    I have seen a couple of threads complaining about the surge of "newbs" on the forum. Why do people look at the post count and if greater than 500 they are vets and you can talk to them. The wii came out at the same time for everyone (you know what I mean). What makes people with less posts not as knowledgeable about the wii?

    Some people believe the more posts they have the better they are. Basically it's like high school. The more posts you have the bigger the chance of being popular/well known. Wheras the person with the less amount of posts is referred to as a noob or just an outcast.

    That is not correct.
    People who have been here longer, tend to be more knowledgable on the subject.
    Consider that all the "Introduction" posts. Most consist of them saying that they just got the Wii recently, and that they have a question about friend codes, and such.

    However, there are people who do look at post count, and judge on that, but I assure you, the forum is slowly getting more tolerant (due to some of the new moderating), and this forum will be one big happy family in no time.
    *Hopefully*

    By asking a question like that you are a n00b. It's not post count, it's intelligence and post quality. Where as post whores such as Rabbid Toaster and many others are spamwhores and the term you prefer to use: n00b.

    Seriously, why do you care what others think of you on here? Its the Internet, not High School, you don't have to face these people daily in real life. I couldn't give two shits whether or not everyone here *likes* me and wants to be my *friend* If I see a topic that I want to respond in, I do...and I don't care if someone considers me a n00b or not. Just be you and post, and as long as your not a Dick to everyone then whats it really matter what people think of you?

    Well said!

    Totally Agree! Although I never cared what people thought of me when I was at school anyway and I have a ton of friends that liked me because I didn't pretend to be something I'm not! :thumbsup:

    thats exactly what the newbs of the forum are

    and a lot of the newer members are more bias towards the wii because they think since its a wii forum, its allright, which is true to some extent, but once they get proven wrong theyll be the first to call the: flamer

    And who the hell cares upon what people think about you in high school, n00b seems to be an offensive term to everyone, including Toad. Anyone that is completely ignorant and naive, is related to the term you all refer to as n00b. Anyone who has a username that stretches out the screen everytime they post, they are also a n00b. Anyone who uses 'txt tlk' is also one. So therefore, around 79% of the forums are filled up with n00bs.
