With the recent join date elitism i feel i need to bring this up to all members

Quote by The FAQ
You are not that cool I'm putting this in because I noticed some people doing this, regardless of their post count/registration date. Newbies - you may be the bees' knees at home or in school, but here, you are a newbie. Don't act all uppity, because people will flame you. Senior Members - you aren't better than newbies. You too were once a newbie. Arrogance = badong.


I'm fed up of the age of your account being a reason for abuse.

you could have posted this in the pit.
The trouble with nude dancing is that not everything stops moving when the music does.

UG senior members will always haze the newer user's, nothing you can do about it

So wait a second, you put a thread telling older members to be nicer to new members in the new member section? I agree with what you're saying but it's not going to do much good here.

If then newbs deserve to be flamed, by all means do so. But random flaming simply because someone new is unnecessary. Actually I don't really care for the most part. So whatever. If it makes someone feel prestigious if they flame some random guy over the internet, then there's something wrong with them. have a nice day.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

*chuckles softly*

Members who flame "newbies" flame them for a reason. Some immature twats flame them simply because of their join date, however, September '06 was the worst month for spammers/b.s. accounts/children joining. October '06 is off to the same start. I rarely see anyone say "OMG SEPTEMBER 06ER KILL HIM" unless he or she is actually doing something wrong.

Also, if a new member is a good member, if they submit tabs and reviews, if they make somewhat intelligent posts, and if they just try to be a nice person, no one will descriminate by join date, because they won't have a reason to.
