I just love junior members. I feel they all have a special quality that makes them a unique bunch. That quality is to fit in. Now we all can't be a Mcuzi or a SteyrAUG but by this thread I hope to "help" you fit in a little better. Advice #1: Sign your posts the same way everytime. Don't leave them unsigned. It's kinda like not tucking in your shirt. Advice #2: Keep posting. Don't expect to get the replies SteyrAUG gets at first. Don't get discouraged. Stick to only replying to others posts and make sure to never take sides in any arguement. Advice #3: Make sure you do quality posts and your name is unique enough to stand out. Study just one thing and know it throughly and you might be the guy people come to first. Hopefully this will draw some of the lurkers out and get some of the junior members more active.

Yes. Great, emotional buzzword. "For the children" Very profound. The anti crowd is using them so well. Good job.

OK, I'll bite. I'm really into FALs right now, but I plan on picking up another pre-ban AR towards Christmas. Saw this board, and knew I needed to lurk awhile before posting. You drew me out of my turtle shell. Sand Pirate- Ask the Indians if Immigration is important!

Uh, lesseenow, I am a jr. member now. What happened to my post count when the board realigned awhile back. I was not a jr. member then. I guess I am starting all over again.

Actually skip all those steps. Just post a lot of BS links, some this vs. that threads, and flame everyone on the board every chance you get. You'll be popular and have member staus in no time.[;)]

Actually, to achieve legendary status here, it is important to call folks idiots and assholes everytime you can. Makes people really like and remember you. Pay close attention to how HANGFIRE does it.[;D]

Don't forget to flame the moderators, and never miss a chance to jump on the cop-bashing band- wagon. Start pornography topics. Argue with garandman about religion. Argue with Landon about race issues. Call OlyM4gery mean names like "pal". Ask Sukebe who "you folks" are... That oughta get ya started.

I don't have a desire to argue with garandman about religion, or Landon about race issues. Where's my porn collection..... As for the rest, been there, done that!

Never mention the one who's name begins with an "M". I've been here for years, but have few posts. I do remember Fluffy, Mall Ninja, Zen, GlockCop, and of course my own debacle 20 round colt mags for $13 each thread! Balming

...also, don't fall into the trap of thinking that someone with 1K+ posts is any more knowledgeable than someone with 100. There are a lot of people who post here all of the time and never contribute anything worthwhile (me?). Welcome & have fun! Tyler

I am a newbie and have a few questions. I hope this is a good place to ask. 1. What exactly is a troll? Is is somebody purposely posts wrong information? Is it somebody who tells newbies to buy crappy guns and mags? Do they start threads like AK vs. AR, Glock vs. 1911, Ford vs. Chevy? 2. What is the deal with all of the animated circles? Don't they get overused? Do new ones show up each month? 3. Do all ASA rifles suck, or did I just get a lemon? My Bushy and LEGP are 10 times better in every way. 4. What the hell is a mall ninja? 5. Does anybody have a Les Baer Thunder Ranch special they would like to trade / sell? ( I know I should post this question in the Wanted to buy section). Any help is appreciated. Live Free

Advice #4 Any thing you see posted by Imbrog|io with a "grain or salt" he's a master of political satire. Trolls basically will try to suck you into a flame-fest, post some BS in order to see if anyone will call them on it, or watch your past posts to see what will make you go ballistic (and then post it). Often (not always) the troll will be a "new member" with a low post count, sometimes the "new member" is actually (oh, never mind that part).

"flame-fest" What is so bad about a flame fest? It's fun to try and talk some sence in to a 12 year old kid at his mom's computer that wants us to think he is 35 and knows every thing[:(!]

Ahh yes, there have been many spirited discourses on the subject of our furry feline friends. A SURE FIRE way to get recognition is to proclaim yourself as a High Master highpower rifle shooter who regularly whoops the tar out of Lew Tippie,you prefer to wear cat skin gloves to shoot with, you shoot at every cop that you lay eyes on, and you shoot at them with an AK-47. Claim to have more porno than Steyr AUG and tell imbroglio that only wussies carry .38 specials. Tell mcUzi at every chance that you could kick his butt blindfolded while eating a sandwich, and so could all of your ethnic friends. Tell Lordtrader that you culd have bought and sold him at any time you wished and that he never had a grasp of finance. Disclose to SteyrAUG that you are in fact Toad Bailey, that you in fact did buy the HK factory, and stress repeatedly the superiority of Special Widgets over the real thing. Chuck I like cats, they taste like chicken!

There really should be a "newbie dictionary" outlining the important things like: What is "btt" What is a "mall ninja" Who is "Fluffy" (for you old timers) What is a "troll" Who is "McUzi" When will I be a "member"? When will I be a "Senior Member"? etc..... (feel free to add on guys) Nuckles. [smash]
