I've seen a lot of RUDE remarks towards people new to the game, asking quesions that most of us have asked ourself's awhile back. So what is the matter with that? You were new to the game yourself ... not to long ago! Or do you have that short of a memory.

The problem is they ask questions that have been answered a million times before. They could just run a forum search or read the FAQ, or heck, even read the Read_Me that comes with the game. Heaven forbid.

You are absolutely right Storm, still no need to be rude though...

Red Storm is quite right in a way: people should use the "search" button a bit more often...

Still, I see no reason to be rude to anyone unless they are rude themselves.

Just point them to the button... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Then maybe a repley about using the menu would be better than some rude comment for a answer.

True - Newbies can be irksome asking the same old questions, but as has been said - No excuse for bad manners. I always try and help out where I can even if the question at first semms dumb/lame - many new people may not have confidence around these forums/Their PC/IL2FB etc, so I don't mind. I remember when I was in the same boat, and people were kind enough to indulge my naivety and help me so I am slower to jump on the "noob" poster.

Howver - some newbies post to stir things up (stupid/inflammatory Polls and the like) sometimes this is because they don't know any better, but still - most of these threads are deliberateliy designed to end in a flame fest http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif IMHO they deserve all they get. Let the mods deal with them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

There have been a lot of new members who start a thread trashing Oleg and the game because of something they perceive is flat out WRONG.

I don't read every one but the ones I've read where the guy shows some respect most members responding try to help.

Like Arcadeace and others more or less said, often we get questions that perhaps need only a quick check in the manual or a quick search, some of it smaks of pure laziness of even the thought process. Often a question is asked designed to cause a flame war, or is thoughtlessly rude in its attitude.

Ask a question politely, with a little thoughtful respect and you can get away with almost ANY question (in fact I`ve seen clever trollers do this, although to they`ll often get a polite answer back which often they don`t expect!) J

Just ask your question with a bit of thought and you`ll have no problems.

One needs to be careful about jumping to this conclusion. It may be that the phrasing used is a perfectly polite inquiry in High Pekinese, the poster's native tongue, but translated to Engish by someone whose only experience with the language dates back to 9th grade classroom exercises......ouch http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif
In some cases the poster simply does not realise that what they've posted is phrased unacceptably.
