@ Moorey

tis ashame that you feel that way. i had hoped that by now the general anti-newb mindset of veteran members would have mostly faded away since we dont get many new members on the forums these days.

i wouldn't worry too much about being 'intrusive'. everyone here generally appreciates anyone's input on a discussion regardless of their join date.

take Dhampy as a good example...well not a good example but an example nonetheless. as a newbie he dove into the forums face-first(mainly because he was drunk) and now he's like family to all the us vet members here...yuh kno, like the creepy uncle that always smells like scotch and beef jerky

<_<

Back at 07, now that was really awesome..

It was extremely fun to go on chu. It ain't the same no more though. Nobody did it like the current elders did . (or sages..elites.)

Well its all about boredom IMHO.

No one can stick to one place forever...Even if that place is awesome.

It's called growing up. When I first joined this site, I was 14 years old. I'm now 21 years old. A 14 year old looks at the community much different than a 21 year old does. As much as you don't want to hear it, the community as a whole is not going to grow up with you. It will always stay at that 14-16 year old range with younger generations replacing you as the new fresh people.

The only problem being that those 14-16 year olds aren't here to replace older members or post on GD or OTD, they are here for trainers.

lol i remember when i made one of these...
..but yeah, i guess everyone is moving on with their lives (Especially the elders). I know I am, I hardly go on here, and I even forget about this place once in awhile..

Except there have been fewer 14 to 16 year olds who stay to replace us, so most people pop in every so often and things stagnate.

As for GD itself, people post in the wrong place.

all-in-all i think neo7 has a point there. older members r growing up and moving on with their lives but this also holds true that the 14-16 age group isn't actually replacing the older members...they come here mostly for cheats and trainers plus a bit of help with clearing a level or two and don't actually contribute to the fun and festivities here at CH.
