A brand new world to socialize with other members. Where to start? How to start? What is it like to interact with other members? Will I look like a fool if I post something silly on accident?

All online communities (forums) can be pretty scary when you are the new guy. Don't worry we have all been there. Luckily ArmorGames now has a new section to introduce yourself! Where else to start than here? Introduce yourself and let everyone get to know you here!

For all the people who have been active in the community for a while, you are as welcome here as the Newcomers. It is the job for all the people familiar with the community to help make those new here feel at home. Talk to the newcomers and befriend them!

Do not worry about teaching the newcomers about community etiquitte. In time, every member should be able to aquire the skills to posting appropriately and constructively. Focus on being friendly and having fun. If someone has a question they need answered, by all means go ahead and help them out!

Don't scare the newcomers. Pushing a bunch of hints and tips to posting maturely, not posting spam, and how to follow rules will only intimidate people new and old.

The best way to show other member's how to act is by example! Be friendly and smart to others and they shall learn to be friendly and smart back.

For all the newcomers to this community, welcome! This community is always growing and we are always looking forword to meeting new faces. = D

XD Well, I've been here for little more than a week, but already I feel I've gotten a pretty good grip on things, and am giving out advise to people where I can...
Nice thread, NoNameC68, it gets the message through and is well written. :)

I'm sorry but i came to this page via a link from another guys thread saying much the same thing but telling people to view this one instead. So much for friendly you even tried to outdo another player with a thread like his shame on you, you preach like you are all friendly and welcoming but only upfront when you think noones really watching you go bad shame on you  for shame.

This thread is not like his. This thread does not talk about spam, rules, or points. It talks about allowing people to venture out themselves. I am tired of people trying to pull off the whole profesional act.

I never tried to outdo anybody else. I linked this thread from his thread because it is important he understands what I mean. I made the link because this one better explains my point.

But his thread was good enough and didn't require upstaging.

He was only trying to help but you made out he was some noob intimidating monster you cannot talk about people acting proffesional because you are trying to do the same thing in order to act like a mod yourself.

What was the point of reviving this thread?
