Default New Members.

Hey guys.
I don't know why, but I've seen quite a bit of rudeness to Newer Members. I know there are a lot of members who welcome them into the conversation, but there are some who don't. I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but I sure have. Take the Chat Thread for instance, I always see new members coming. And when they say Hello only a couple of people will bother to welcome them, and the rest will just ignore them and go on with it.

I find this a bit rude. Just because they're new, it doesn't mean they shouldn't be treated with respect. And this also makes me think of how members are treated according their posts. There might be a lonely and friendly member out there with only 45 posts, meanwhile members with 45,000 posts are getting noticed and are having everyone talking to them. That's not right. Posts. Don't. Matter.

I wish this obsession would stop. :/
Well, that's all I wanted to say.
Thanks.

- Candice

I totally agree!

When I was newer some members would call me rude and ignore anything I said.
Rep!

Sometimes it just takes time and patience to get welcomed on a busy thread...I have been there in that place, sometimes waiting 5 pages on the OM for a "Hi Mystic!"...

still, it is very important to remember to treat them with respect as you would to a staff member...

the golden rule

Thanks guys. (:
And Mystic, I agree with the whole busy thread thing 100%. Although, I know for a fact a lot of people see their posts, but they'll just skim over it. And that's not very polite. [:

I agree. Just because members call themselves “popular” or another member, “popular”, that doesn’t mean you should ignore the other members--including the “newbies”. :]

Yup!
As my teacher says, the real definition is somebody who is really friendly and everyone likes them for themselves. To be honest, I think some of the members here are admired for their posts.

Default Re: New Members.

thanks for bringing this up

it reallly annoys me to watch a newer member make a thread, post, etc, that is very strong, and then watch people skip over it just because that person is not known around the forum, of perhapse you think because they are new, their points will not be as good. in reality, everyone has something to contribute, and just because you only have 20 post does not mean your idea will not be as good as that from a member with 5000 post. just remember, people should not be judged on rep, post, titles, badges, etc. a lil kinz may be able to answer a question a GG cannot

rep to you!

Default Re: New Members.

A lot of people welcomed me when I was new here. Some didn't. I agree, it's very rude to just read the post and ignore it. You can say a "Welcome" or something. Lil' kinz are just as good as GGs. Everyone should be treated equal.
