I, hearby, nominate myself. Nomination accepted, thank-you. First order of business. Shugart is a geek. I, hearby, resign. Carry on.

i agree with the respect issue... i noticed too many posts as of late as well....

look at it from the point of view of someone who is interested in the sport... they come here because it is the place to get great info...and it is ...

so they as a question...they get flamed...

now that person who is a potential supporter looks upon the community as bunch of "army wanna-bes" with huge attitudes and short on courtesy...now what is that person going to to say about the sport?

remeber we are all ambassadors to this sport...it doesn't take much to turn opinion in either direction...

a little repect here goes a long way to our cause

In reference to the newbie flaming, some people just need to learn how to excercise some restraint. Then again some of us just sit around at work and constantly browse the forums all day, waiting to post.. about anything.

I think I'll personally start working on my canned messages for the newbie questions and start pasting from notepad. If we can get enough of us to do the same, maybe they'll get the idea. Just need to resist... let Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V do all the work.

good points all round

newbies, there are enough people here that can answer question. And you get one newb post, and 10 replies of flame. noobs arnt the only problem, newb flamers are.
and fine, if your gonna be an ass, thats cool, but dont chairsoft and be an ass. If you have attitude, dont hide behind your screen. Dont say anything you wouldnt say to their face at a game....and if your not willing to goto a game, then dont say shit in the 1st place.
As most people here know, I tend to get into arguments with an individual here, and I do so, over and over. Why, because we have conflicting arguments. I hate arguing online, and as a result, offer the option of meeting and arguing face to face...Many people wont say the same shit to your face. Thats where the real man comes out. There are those who can talk shit online, but dont have the brass to say it to your face.

Respect is earned, not freely handed out. Wanna be admins will sometimes find themselves getting a warning.

So why is this only a guideline? Might be good to turn this into a rule.

Of course, you're totally right on this. But is it really necessary to insult for this? Solving disrespect by behaving with more disrepect?

I found almost everything I needed. And I was so terrified (LOL) of getting flamed, I researched what I didn't find on ASC elsewhere and did pretty well.
A week ago, we were 9600 users on ASC. Now we are 9730. 130 new users in one single week. We got about 7 newbie threads this week. So we can say that 5% of newbies don't read the FAQs. But this means too that 95% have read them, or at least, avoided to post, knowing what would have happened. This unfortunate (or lazy) 5% just needs to be told "Read the FAQs please", as Lokes pointed out:

If 5 ASC members in a row just write "Read the FAQs please", nothing more, the noob will understand. Just let the thread alive for a day to let the noob read it and be aware that the FAQs exist and MUST be read unless no answer will be provided. Simple, no?

Ok... so this means that unless you're a known Airsoft player, you can be given a truckload of shit from wannabes veterans?
I'd say: "Answers are earned, not freely handed out". It's common sense. If the guy has proven that he made his researches and still has a question, there will be no problem.
