I'll either help, flame or ignore people in the IRC channel, depending on my mood. I've never really seen the uplink irc channel/server as a help channel or even as a place to discuss the game, more of a gathering place for likeminded people. Although activity is becoming rarer these days :/

With the IRC Hud Upgrade (which date of at least 4 years), you had to expect an affluence of people not necessarily knowledgeable. (Since it lower the step needed to join an IRC Channel). It also tell everybody that there is an IRC channel for Uplink to connect to (using the in-game Hud or not).

See this is an example of poor grammar that most veterans would laugh at, and complain, and do many other things that we talked about here. :P

Goddam I take a break for a while and I miss this?

You wanted jaded veterns, right here!
You want those who think you should read the forums and the guide first, that'd be me.
You want those who are sick of n00bs, me again.
You want those who are glad to welcome newbies, well that'd be me.

You see the difference is when you are new to a community it pays to shut up and watch how it works. You go in all guns blazing, you will get stomped on.

As for how we treat girls....erm one word. Pathy.

There is a page that says all this, but I'll link it and leave it at that.
The page I mentioned.

I think there's this one guy, right, who just keeps making new accounts so that he can start theads like this one. Kinda like a hobby. :lol:

Kinda like me getting people's name from the banks on uplink and throwing them all in jail for hacking and robbery?

it's not like I just showed up here... I have been watching the forum for about six months now... anyway I desided it was time to say something, not that people should just be spoon-fed...

I agree with all of you on that,

Many of your gripes I agree with also...

I just found some of the attitudes supprising that's all

I was not nessisarity trying to piss anyone off, though it was an unavoidable side-effect. I was however just trying to get accross that dumb or lazy questions really should be expected...

But it's unessisary to jump to the conclustion that we all have not even attempted to find the answer our selves...

Take me for instance I DID indeed jump through the standard hoops to find the information I required before posting...

But have you noticed how many posts there are?

So if I did miss something and was repeditive in a question, I do appologize, but I don't think that assumption is really the best way to treat anyone... Even if you are in a medium that is so impersonal such as this.

I know the feeling. I'm still trying to set up my own. It sucks.

Talking about the "longer you are here the less you are hated", how many people hate me? :P

Fuck! Of course! I was wondering why I was still being ostracised by the community even after I passed the tests of Water, Earth and Air.
