Good advice. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, after all!

Good question. If you or I are humble enough to admit noobishness then that makes us something more. If you or I care enough to quietly and patiently wait for that light bulb idea (we actually have many), then that makes us something more. If you or I wait for the subjects that we know something about before posting, then indeed we are shedding our noob cocoon. I know I am still a caterpillar. I also know that this site is one where one finds people smarter and wiser than us. This makes us above top noob.

Also gather being "pwned" means to be shown up. Kind of pride based . Like the great hunter that poses with their rifle and the kill. Sort of I'm better than you cause look what I did. These types are really behaving selfishly when they prove you wrong (we say mistaken), or gloat over pointing out your ignorance regarding a matter. HAHA, I Pwned you, HAHA! Some people seem to only find satisfaction in having torn others down to their level, thus making them feel better by comparison. I wouldn't worry too much about their opinions.

Hey, and sometimes its a jest, or a goal, like checkmate. Don't let it get to you. Water off a ducks back...

Haha! I like it. I am 'Above Top Noob'. The 'Fresh Meat' tag is officially debunked!

A Caterpillar munching away happily on all the good and plentiful greens that are free for the taking.

Thank you very much for your contribution, and a giggle

The whole point of ATS is to "Deny Ignorance". We take on ignorance, prove facts, and move on to the next topic. We all have the same resources to utilize, the interwebs, and we dig and dig and dig to prove what reality actually is. There may be pride involved, but it's only because we pride ourselves in holding to a different standard than MSM or TPTB. We just take input, derive facts, and cast the rest aside as supposition and speculation. Sure, there are members here with a peach on their shoulders, but the majority of members here resolve to the basic principles upon which ATS was founded. Most of us have no EGO trip incorporated into us. We merely want the TRUTH.

It's as simply as that.

Haha, reading my last post back I have now realised there is more than one way to interpret my words!

I think in general there is a positive correlation between a members experience and the amount of posts they have made, that's simply a numbers game.

However, this may not always be the case.

Take Neo's point into the equation, I've seen members with a minuscule amount of posts write extremely interesting and insightful material and I've also seen members with large amounts of posts write threads/posts that I've considered pretty meaningless.

Rather than focus on the numbers, focus on the material. It's quality rather than quantity

Also consider that some people on here may be members for years but post relatively little, numbers can be misleading...

Now crack on Noob's and get posting

Hello nixie_nox

You're the third person to give that response! I imagine it's widely believed by many. Nevertheless, thanks for your contribution



Cheers

Title: "At what point does a "Noob" cease being a noob..."

When you stop referring to yourself, as a "noob", is a start...


But seriously, it varies...depending on, what you are being a noob at?

Some things require more 1337-ness, than others.

I'm Above Top Noob, I'll have you know!

I am pretty new here. Out of general curiosity rather than feeling bad about being new in some way, I wondered what criteria are met for other members to consider a thread or post valid and how they guage other members' posting credibility.

There have recently been alot of 'Troll' rants and threads by 'Trolls'. How would anyone know that I, for example, am not a 'Troll' too?! (More of an Ogre, in all honesty
)

Thanks for stopping by, SmoKe


Er, 1337-ness? extra DIV

FFS, I just wrote out my comment...to go & delete it all by mistake, after thinkin' I had copied it, for a second...*That* is the definition of "Noob" (& fail).

Basically, you can't gauge another member's posting credibility, without conversing with them...& only then, will you be able to find out what "internet status level" they are really at...


I'm not sure if there's a criteria to be met, in order to "not be a noob"...Just the quality of your post, will let people know, how esteemed you really are


1337 is This.

* Noob Mouldilocks.. * - Just kiddin', my dear!

I'm here to entertain you all-night, locks.

Haha, I Noobed just then too, went to start writing a reply after quoting you and instead just posted the quote...

I learned something new today 1337. Thanks for the lesson, SmoKe


And yes, your cheeky comments are part of the splendid experience ATS offers

You are no long a noob when you don't bother reading three pages of responses on whether your a noob or not.

I would argue that replying on your own thread is less about noobishness and more about common courtesy, regardless of subject matter


I asked a question, people responded, I thanked them for input. A little politeness goes a long way, IMHO.

Nevertheless, thanks again for your contribution.
