...when the Forums will become pretty busy, busy with "newbies" (new owners) who received their PS3's, PSP's & PS VITA's for Christmas, & trust me, they'll have all sorts of questions.
Some will have very basic ones, some not so, but they will have questions, as once did we, there will be posts in the wrong section, there will be duplicates, & yes there will even be some that got their PSN ID wrong & want to change it, yes, we know they can't, there will be, well, you get the idea!
What I'm trying to say is, a large number of us, at least the regulars anyway, know our way around our PS3's, PSP's & VITA's very well, we know what goes where, why this does that & why we can't do this & that, others will not, but that's partly why we stay here to assist others & maybe have some fun along the way too.
So in the spirit of Christmas, I'm asking everyone of us to try our best to be patient with these new owners, lets welcome them to the Community, remember the first person who responds to a post will be the first interaction they have with this Community, it can make or break their experience with us, lets try to make that first experience a good one, let's also try to help them out as best we can, & if we can't maybe we can point them in the right direction, maybe one or two will even like this Community & the help & advice they received from us & decide to hang around a while, we can all make that happen.
Lastly remember one thing, we were all new to this stuff once, now they are.
Happy Christmas Everyone, new & old alike.
WOW, you were not kidding, It is almost staggering to look on the right of the Forum and watch the New Members / "low" rankers signing on faster than the PS Home Section's posts.
I have to admit, having been in their shoes not that long ago, I feel for them when they get blasted.
That being said; it is hard to hold back sometimes. Some subjects and questions are a little redonk.
Oh well, so goes the Forum, so goes the World.
Hard to believe I was a newb once, and that was around 3 years ago. Man how time flies...
we were all noobs at one point in time on these boards
