    Merely the junior Admin, one of two. Also merely one of several staff members that make this place run so smoothly :)

    Let's just say my level of tolerance for that particular line of crap is pretty much nil

      If I might add something to this classic- Read more than you post. A lot more. Especially when you're starting out, it helps to just observe for a while, get to know different members' styles. This can prevent a lot of misunderstanding and embarrassment. Also, much of the time, if you wait a bit before posting, you'll either discover that someone else says the same thing, only much more eloquently, or you'll realize that what you wanted to say is just dumb. I speak from much personal experience on this last one.
      I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

            I think another thing that has to be outlined clearly is that not only is this place not a Democracy, it isnt some completelly egalitarian group love hippy commune either.

            Yes the member with 1000 posts plus can often joke and talk shite and crack one liners with the other regulars... and eventually if you stay on and build frienships and earn respect then you will earn that right too.

            Not to say to keep everything 100% serious, we are all here after all for fun but i would strongly consider limiting the irrelevant one liners, unless of course in the WAB pub where you can feel free to spew forth as much shite as you like... as long as it doesnt break any of the other rules.

            Oh and if the Officer of Engineers is having one of his random discussions with Xinhui about something as invigorating as the hull number of a particular disused Chinese support vessel with an unpronouncable name it would be wise to keep out of those discussions unless you are an expert on disused Chinese support vessels with unpronouncable names. Ive seen a couple of newbies get their heads ripped off wading in with their own 2c, not recommended at all.

                  I am kinda the self-appointed agent provocateur here, and I like to jump all over the n00bz, just to see how they handle themselves. Some freak out and slash-'n'-burn back, which gets a few of 'em a dis-invitation to the Klubhouse. But if you can stand up to it AND come off lookin' sane, you've got some insta-cred.

                  Either way...you're welcome. I do it because I'm a giver.

                    I've closed this thread not for any wrongdoing but because it was getting some peculiar spambot attention. I'll open it again at a later date, in the meantime if anyone wants something added to it just let me know....
