Just a reminder for all members

Postby Zombiebrian » Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:43 pm

This forum was founded in 2009 and as one of the few that remember when it first got off the ground I can remember we vowed to be welcoming to new players. With that in mind i thought with SFV on the horizon I would reiterate the fact that this principle holds up today as it did then.

There is likely to be a flood of newbs all asking silly questions like how do i select a main to how do i Shoryuken... these will undoubtedly grain a little on everyones tempers not least the Scrub complains (yeah i said it) If we respond to this with patience and genuine advice we will convert these to full blown contributors to the forum.

I do not want to end up banning members for being a dick to new users, if someone is saying something you disagrees with either try and convince them of your point of view or walk away. When i first started with EH and SF4 i was a massive scrub i mean i though Akuma and Blanka were stupid cheap (i was right... just kidding) the patience shown at the time from scardyfox and aznflavor took a while to effect me but it did eventually get through.

With that in mind ive been thinking of reinstating the rants and raves areas with massive warnings on entry to it maybe a 200 post minimum lol im still talking about it with the mod team but we will see.

In all seriousness though he has a good point.
Also sometimes some of you guys (CoughSulfurCough) like to say dumb **** but new guys won't understand you're joking so be careful of that.

Yes sir, I agree completely. Definitely have to keep in mind of our newbies having to get adjusted before they get comfortable.

I'm down for a rants making a return.

I agree, one of the things I hate the most on any forum is when there are new people asking questions and people bash on them like "omg this question has already been asked a million times, what are you too stupid to use the search bar?" Just answer their question or ignore it, it's not a big deal.

Speaking of 2009, perhaps you should consider updating your forums or at the very least its security. I've been doing some mopping, but there's only so much one person can do in their free time.
