Does 50 post break Newbie?
« on: July 07, 2006, 09:29:36 PM »
If it does then I won't be a newbie anymore, does that mean I'll have to change my Handle? ???  If I change it, will that make me a newbie again? ??? ???     Dillema! Dillema!   :D


Maybe I'll change it to     8)

Hey there newbeeMC9..

Please see my post on the Help Board for how to change your displayed name while maintaining your post total.  (hmm. Post Total.  sounds like a breakfast cereal product)

Anyways - The post is "Does changing my name or "handle" change my post count?"  Hope this helps -

Best Regards, Phil

Newbie,  I'm gonna be honest with you.  There's nothing wrong with being a "newbie".  In the true sense of the definition it means that you're an innocent...and not necessarily guilty for goofs, dumb questions, and incomplete offerings.

Some time back I was well on my way to being a Senior Member.  While that might be a goal to attain...something tells me it's not really the "Magic" in the Bell Curve of learning.

I have no idea what my current rating is...and don't care.  I'm long past the point in my life where accreditation means anything.

Keep reading, learning and contributing when and where you can and stop worrying about the numbers.  We're all accepted here as long as we maintain a certain amount of decorum.

It'll come, m'friend, perhaps as soon as you stop being concerned about it.

Beware of the man who starts out with "I'm gonna be honest with you" or do you beware he doesn't!   :D  Just kiddin NCBob 

I started it out post thinking I would change it one day.  Maybee Ssnce I want to be like you when I grow up I could bee NewBob ;D :D  Or maybe work my way to NewGumpee! :D

Anyway Bob I'm not worried about the titles too much, I just noticed I was at 49 post and was funnin around with number 50 
one reason I like this hobbee is that I like learning and there is plent of that to keep me a newbee for a while.  Besides I've got too much invested into the NewbeeMC9 handle to just change it anyway.

Newbie, Shmewbie!  They're all just titles.  Take any title and three bucks, and it'll get you
a Big Mac down at the local Golden Arches.   ;D ;D

Of course, we all know I'm just tryin' to get rid of that "newbie" status, eh?   :)

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride
