View Full Version : That's the Pe2k Spirit!

I've been snooping throughout the forums lately and noticed that a lot of members have one LARGE problem in common. A lot of them are sulking, getting angry, flaming, complaining, or even threatening to leave over the fact that "Pe2k has been invaded by noobs who only come for Wifi and hacking" among other things. What's the purpose of this thread? To remind all members about how great this place is, even with all of the newbies.

Personally, I believe that just because some people came here to play a game doesn't mean that the older members should quit. That makes no sense. In fact, half of the new members only post in the Pkmn Diamond/Pearl section. If you can't stand the newbs so much then just don't go to that area; it's as simple as that. Let's all remember why we all joined here(or at least most of us). Because we had an affinity for pokemon and friendship. That's what Pe2k is, and that's what it always shall be. So post here, and help me spread the word that Pe2k is still one of the greatest things since sliced bread.

I think that people are more annoyed with the fact that people only sign up to make a few or no posts and then they leave. Some of those make threads with questions that have already been answered.

That's what I think.

I personally don't care. I'm all for helping others and having fun.:happy:

It's pretty much a given that in a forum that requires users to register, there is a great disproportion of registered members with >100 posts over registered members <100 posts. Some people would like one or a few questions answered, and that’s all the business they really have here. Others are just really young and really don’t know what the heck they’re doing in forums like this, so many of them just totally make a mess out of things and either leave knowing they messed up or are flamed out. It’s all expected, pretty much. I don’t usually have a problem with those kinds of people unless there’s a problem in particular to do with me, so yeah. :tongue:

I really don't think that you guys should be posting links to people you consider n00bs. If you sit there and make fun of them and point fingers, you're really no better than they are.

If I recall correctly, this thread is about people that leave PE2K because of the n00bs, or threaten to, and how an "iron curtain" has settled over PE2K. xP Although, I don't recall this being "let's look at all of the n00bs and how stupid they are!" thread.

I think that it will pass once DP wears off, so I'll just grin and bear it.

Yeah, same thing happened when MD came out. Whenever there's a big revelation in the world of Pokemon video games, there's this huge hype about it for several months, then every thing returns to normal. Guess we'll just have to give it a little time. . . -.-

For sence non of you are leaving(or semi-leaving) I am. Im not going to be on as much. I am tires of the thread that read "Do you know any AR codes?". They dont look at the Stickies nor do they Probaly know what a Sticky is. It is annoying to sign on and see crap threads that have could of gone in a Sticky. I know it is cooling down now but as for the TIME I am sick of al these n00bs as mean poeple call them. I just call them people that don't know what there doing. Maybe once there are less people that make piontless threads I will be on like I was before. All the time as some people know. But lots of people don't like me(I know it just admit it).

Does that say anything?

Hmm. I'm new here, and, compared to some other forums I know of, there's actually a lot less flaming going on here. I, for one, am content with how it is now. I'm not saying I don't want anything to change, and if it changes for the better, that's great. It's just that this place is good enough already. Sure there's noobs/hackers/whatever, but it's not like PE2K is flooded with them. Relative to other places, anyway.

Just my two cents. (Did I use that idiom right?)

Professor Geoffrey
07-02-2007, 02:52 AM
I don't even know what that idiom means... :ermm:

I love PE2K, and I'll only leave when the noob invasion is highly iminate, when I graduate High School (a short leave), and if I die between now, and whenI'm supposed to die, if some tragic accident happened. Or if I get banned, which is almost impossible. I've been here for almost a year, and apparently seniority is almost everything. I didn't have the ability to do everyday access to the comuter since... April 2006. It's because my mom was doing work on it. Then, I got more time on the computer when I got my own!

I wasn't sure about the Forum until Lapraslvr (my cousin) showed me his account. Apparently, the day after he showed me, he was temporarily banned. Then, it turned into a permanent ban, for no specified reason. Megumi only temporarily banned him, then I guess Ryan must've butt in and made a harsher decision (Or, Megumi or another mod did). If only he was here... Sigh.

Hmm... I actually joined because I couldn't join this other forum, and I was mad about that and yeah... It doesn't help that my parents don't want me doing this. But they don't know about it... so... Meh.


BUT, I love this forum to death, and the only reason I would ever leave would be to start a new chapter of my life, if I became emo, got banned, my parents found out, my sister found out and told my parents, if everyone shunned me and flamed me, or if I just didn't want to come on anymore. (But that would probably be because of boredom, or disinterest in Pokemon.)

Edit: This forum really has a lot to offer, and from what I've heard, it's one of the best on the net. :)

I joined before the D/P boards were made. So I'm not one of them, but I still wish, that people didn't come just to advertise their bad, forums, or to ask n00bish questions, and if you don't answere them the same second you post them, then they'll double, triple, or od forbid quadrupule post. I know we can get throught this n00b invasion, but it will take some time. Also, PMD 2, probably won't come out for another year, so I think we'll be safe, until then.

Hmm. I actually joined this place at first because I needed the item Up-Grade and I needed to find a trading message board. I found this one and it had a great trading board, where I proceeded to make even more trades until I had a bunch of leends and shinies... Then that got a little boring and I looked at the rest of the site and it was great, too. The people here are kind, and don't get mad when you ask a question that has an answer in the deep depths of some forgotten thread. Although, as I learned, I have to watch my grammar and spelling in the RP board. But the people there are nice anyway.

Yup, this is the best Pokemon board I've ever seen yet.

Lol, @ Code Geass.

And I had sucky ( far from great ) grammar and spelling when I came here. Still here after this long XD

For the reference, I'm getting quite fed up with these 'noobs are overrunning pe2k, let's quit/don't quit' threads, that I'm just gonna go on a locking spree when I see one more popping up.

Seriously, if people want to leave, let them make their own decision. Most of them will come back if they want to. Just like !Ce said: pe2k is as addicting as PEZ, once you pop, you can't stop.

Yeah, I used to see you in the DCC before you became a mod a long time ago. Your spelling looked like....well I can't think of anything give me some time.

I want you to know that this thread isn't here to convince leaving members to stay, rather to show them how great Pe2k is.

07-02-2007, 01:14 PM
Well, in a nutshell (that's the awesome British expression I learned a few days ago) I'm never going to leave here. I've bashed n00bs quite a lot, and I'm pretty annoyed by them but I keep up the hope that after all the D/P craze dies down, they'll leave. Maybe not at once, but gradually. And even if they don't, still, I think about all those good things and when you compare them to the small problem of n00bs, it makes you wanna stay. Nuff said.

I remember when I joined PE2K, I was sorta a newb myself, but I evolved month after month and grew to it, and acted like I know this place and such. I couldn't grow here myself though, people help other newbs grow here so they can help others aswell. And as for the d/p thread, the game will soon downfall and some people won't even want to chat about it anymore. This kinda stuff happens sometimes, when new games come out, others want to join and talk about like that. I'm sure when everybody joined, they were probably considered, a newb, but they soon became a member month after month, so just give them time to attach here. I stopped complaining and realized this.

You guys were my closest friends here... Sense I was inactive for some...7-8 maybe even 9 months, I wasn't even here to see them go. It made me so sad...

I'm glad at least you're active. Lego keeps in touch with !Ce, although !Ce has no way of communicating with us since he lost his computer, and has VERY limited phone access. SPM changed her name to Angelic Kitsune and then stopped being active completely. I have no clue what happened to Lan(banned? wtf...he's AzureLight?). And Sky Girl's like half-active.

Do you think, the members here feel better from seeing this thread? Besides, the "noob infestation" is actually calming down now.

Ah, I got a PM by one, oddly enough. It was really weird. Hmmm...


(above person doesn't have 1 actual post on these forums but just so happened to PM me)

Eh, I wasn't even active at the time she sent that PM, so I'm all like: o_o

Huh! I got that same exact PM. That's pretty odd.... maybe she went around sending that PM all over the place...?

I doubt a Buddhist would join a Pokemon forum to advertise their website. That is, if we're talking about Abigail.
