Are the "newbies" in your opinion good for the ATS/BTS community?

Or are they the opposite?

Its a mixed thing if you ask me.

Some are great like Narnia for example. Fresh faces are great, but at the same time there are opposites. Most of the bad newbs are stuck in the pit and the bright side is the pit still exists for them to go to.

I dunno if this thread will stick around though so I thought I'd drop my two cents in.

It's a learning experience. I got verbally b-slapped a few times when I got here. Sometimes it's just a matter of learning how to be a member of a community. The few that don't want to learn will be weeded out. I have no problem with the others.

Everyone is new at some point. Welcome them in with open arms and try to help them become informed. If they turn out to be bastards then

Yeah I was horrible when I first showed up (is it really only 4 months ago?), and I was lucky that people were forgiving.

Truly an ATS success story is mine.

Ya, I was a real bastard when I first showed up and now just look at me.



Well, I guess I really haven't changed all that much, but it's the thought that counts.

Its like old people who go "I hate kids" we were all a kid once, same for newbies, we were all one of those at one time!

Well lets see, our other option is just sitting around talking to the same old people about the same old subjects. Of course new members are a good thing. New blood, fresh meat for the grinder, and so on.

Depends on your point of view at a specified time.

No offense, but the question is kinda stupid. As it was said, everybody once was a newbie. What would this community be without newbies? Not much if you ask me.

Sure newbs are a good thing. Trolls aren't tho, and new members will always mean new trolls once in a while.

You take the good. You take the bad. You take them both and then you have....

I think anyone joining after 9/11 is a "noob". That's just my definition.

There are good ones and bad ones, but they all need to be slapped around once in a while.

That makes me a new user then, Masked.

I think newbs are ok, but I hate when theres a billion new intro threads every day. But, alas, what can ya do?

Guys!!! come on ....

Newmembers are a vital part of ats.

Think about it... how many fresh ideas have you come across that the new members have brought here to ATS.

My advice is when you see a new member say hi ...offer help...and in doing so stearing them in the right direction,

We all make mistakes and we still do!
But we learn as we go along,

Again Take a little time to go show some new members the ropes,
we all have questions and having someone who is willing to help sometimes stops the repetive threads,
Also tell them about the search, !!

Some are a pain in the as$, some are real smart.

I like reading other people's opinions and like the fact that there are so many new and varied ideas here. Sure, we have the occasional bad apple but in the main new members are, IMHO, good.

I like the intro threads. Each post is approx 5 points. Where would the people be without points.

Newb's are good for the Ats community. They give a different perspective on different issues, as do other members.
