hate for new members?

Recommended Posts

Serious question.

Why is there so much hate for new members?

I recently fell in love with vinyl (collecting, playing, scavenging).

I literally love every aspect of it.

I was referred here at a record store as a great place to get into the world.

Yet, seems like it's Damn near impossible to get in the door being treated like the plague.

Granted I have interacted with a few great users.

Many get shit for being new on here. Just ride it out & dont let anyone bother you or take it personally. It's an unwritten rule that newbies will be hazed.

 

If you have a thick skin you'll be fine. If you don't you'll probably leave soon.

There are a lot of different personalities around here.  Don't let it bother you, and contribute where you want.

The main things people get mad about are:

People not using the search function, then starting duplicate threads.

People asking stupid questions or questions about very specific issues. ::cough::

People who put things in the wrong section of the forum.

And people just being straight up dicks from the get-go.

You'll be fine, take a little hazing in stride and grow a thick skin for your first month or so and you'll get how things work.

I don't think people here hate new members just because they're new. We hate them because they sign up and ask a question that's been asked 500 times before. That and most of the time they seem like they've never used the internet before.
