    I hope newbies dont get ignored. Iv been reading this board for a while but have had problems registering. But i probably do see why people would most likely to reply to older members.

    a lot of newbies seem rather innocent and virginal compared to a lot of the older forumites on here - they seem less tainted by the adversities of UKL

    Yeah something on the lines of that, as they are more familiar with eachother and probably know some things about eachother too. I dont mind though, the longer am here people might get more familiar with me

    well you know - the frenzied pace of some of the threads, in terms of how many people post on them - and a newbies post just gets lost within all of it -

    and sometimes the rather more brusque and unfriendliness elments of a hectic forum can certainly frustrate some newbies

    Would you say it's true that you are more likely to reply to the threads/posts of older members than newer ones, and if yes then why?
    How long do you have to have been here not to be considered a newby? Personally I base whether or not I reply to a thread on what it consits of.

    I've also noticed that the threads of people with 500-1000+ posts just get carried on for ages and the ones by others usually get ignored with only a few replies.

    This newbie crap is so immature and needless. Should we call the people who've been here ages lifers?

    actually, even though i voted no, i would say yes to that question, because i would rather have a conversation with people i know then people that might just start swearing and ruin the whole thing. But i dont ignore them, i would probably still post most of the time.
