    Feedback from a new member

    Post  cmd on Fri Mar 19, 2010 11:31 am

    Ok so, as of posting this I've been a member for 4 days. I'm 20 years old, and have been using forums for about 8 years. Just like to raise a few points of feedback for anyone interested in seeing this site and consequently Nerf as a sport/modding hobby in this country expand.

    1. Whenever someone asks a question they get blasted for not doing any research first.

    This is a discussion forum, by nature that requires social interaction. The nature of conversation is question-based. Why does everyone feel the need to try and prove some sort of superiority by belittling someone for asking a question. Really it makes the abuser look arrogant and the forum look poor.

    2. Whenever someone criticises someone they get blasted.

    Once again, a facet of social interaction - criticism. Often it's constructive criticism or purely an opinion. I've noticed AJ is prone to abuse for this. It's not a sin to have an opinion in this country guys. You will get criticised often in life - so suck it up and take it on board. You just look like a bunch of whinging keyboard warrior kids.

    I will expand on this but for now - the footy's on!

    1. When you start to see the same questions asked over and over again it just clutters the forum. If the question has been answered once, does it need to be asked again. Secondly, there is the other types of question threads which are there so people can cover their own indecisiveness. Eg. "what gun should I buy". Isn't that something they should work out by themselves.

    2. Some people just can't handle critisim. All they want is people to felate their internet ego.

    I'm not so much talking about obvious questions like that - I'm talking more about questions within a topic.

    I know I'm double-posting, however this is saving me creating another topic.

    Perhaps something someone could think about it making a glossary of terms used on the site and in general nerfing. For example - BBBB is a bit vague for the uninformed.

    I personally think that is a great idea. When I joined the site(when I was young and foolish) things like BBBB really confused me.

    A Glossary would be a good introduction, I know even I sometimes fall behind with the newer terms, so if someone new comes along it'll be a lot harder for them to pick up the lingo.
