Here it is! Step right up! A survival guide for the newbies of queenzone! Just go to my site in my signature and check it out! Everyone is more than welcome to email me with things I could add to it to make it better - and you can also add it to your own Queen site (please let me know you did). This is not a page designed to make fun of anyone - just an effort to bring the hostility down a bit. (also, I apologize if this doesn't belong in the Queen forum for whatever reason)

That is a very nice gesture to keep countless newbies from being slayed. Good work!

I think it's quite good, because the topics that you've told the newbies not to ask do tend to come up alot.

Good stuff. I wish someone would put one of those on this site. It should be a link on the front page:

-New? Click here-

Leads to the newbies questions and answers page and then to signing up.

Thus you cant sign up without reading the newbie section!

Sorry, I had no idea that there was already something posted like this. My brother put me up to posting it, so blame him!

What's with the slagging of new people anyway? When you get over 500 posts or so you have more rights than others? You can put people down when they say things or ask things you don't like?

Yeah, it's great!
But there's just one thing that annoys me a bit:When I was a newbie, I posted a topic "was Freddie hot?"
You asshole...

No more rights, but we've been round long enough to see each "fave album/song/member" "How old is Roger" "Where's John" etc post at least five times. And why the hell not shoot 'em up for asking/saying things we don't like? It's a good way to work on my social skills...


Well too bad you've read it 5 times, just skip it then. You know what's worse than newbie-questions? People putting down other people over nothing. Btw, you wanna work on your social skills? Try taking care of the homeless in your spare time. Might actually be more constructive.

Not QUITE what I meant with the social skills area. And I don't care what YOU THINK is worse than putting people down over nothing. I enjoy it. The thing I love most about this place is it's a better form of therapy than seeing that fucking therapist twice a week.


LOL I'll give in. Some people are beyond reason.

Some of those 'Things not to ask' are questions I would like answers to.

Why should I except somebody telling me what I can and cannot talk about in a bloody forum, if the topic is well within the realms of what the forum is all about?

If your going to tell people what they can't ask, then at least answer those questions so that there is no need to ask them.

But how far do you take it?

Clearly your fed up with seeing threads regarding certain things. So what - live with it. If you don't like the topic, don't read it. But do not enforce laws on others because you feel so much more important or knowledgable that you have the right to lay down those laws.

Rules such as 'No abusiveness', 'No Topics not related' etc. are good rules. Telling somebody what they can't ask when it's perfectly relevant it rediculous.
