  • How long is someone a noob?

    And what comes after noob?

    There are some "special" people that will break the mold, but what would you say is a general rule of thumb? 6 months of having a functional in-car computer? 12 months? 1 month?

    I dont have one and i ain't no noob!

    I just don't ask noob questions cos i don't need to and would find the answer if i did as i ams ure it is out there!

    I am of the opinion there are too types of noob:

    1. the new person who genuinely doesnt know and tries hard and is cool about it and will one day become a useful member of society!

    2. the sod who is annoying and wont do anything for him/herself adn annoys people and is rude and will ask the same questions over and over again and that person will forever be a noob (the bad kind) and thus will never be a useful addition to society and should be exterminated!

      Like I said, there will always be members that break the mold. Like those with over 4,000 posts and yet still no carputer? That seems a bit atypical if you ask me.

            noob had nothing to do with the status of your pc ... it has to do with your knowledge on the subect.

            you stop being a noob when you can answer other noob questions ... and not ask things like "how do I power my PC?" and "how do I get audio to the PC?"

            those are noob questions (not saying they shouldn't be asked)...

                Well, of course there are forum-hogs that will break the mold. Those of us that go to work or school and log in to the forum just to see what new has been added dont count.

                But you're typical first-time visiter who only visits the forum for answers to specific questions, as I would imagine the majority of the members do. I think we can establish a general guideline for noob-liness.

                  I have seen some guys who gained respect on their first post, e.g. the guy that did the Valntine to PC interface, he had something to offer on his first post, too me, at least, he is not noob.

                  OTOH, using the word "mold" in every post indicates that the poster is noob

                            I stopped considering myself a noob when I first helped someone get through a problem that I myself had hit and figured out the solution to.
