This forum is growing tremendously, and more than the usual leaving/joining cycle. this is VERY GOOD for the community, and those of us who are veterans of the game and the forum have a responsibility. threads like the training dojo are what we should be doing. teaching the new players everything about the game and the forum is a must. I recommend taking one or two new players under your wing and teaching them everything you know, i do it all the time and i assure you it is a very rewarding and joyous experience to watch a player grow and mature in this game. above all else, i hope not to see anyone bashing on ANY new player, it is disgusting and unbecoming of the forum. so go and teach someone! be encouraging, and help this forum grow.
See where I am going with this?
Either way, make the new guys feel welcome.
