Let the Migration Begin
Decimater created Let the Migration Begin on Sat Jan 06, 2001 5:07 am
Beast/X-Ray/Napalm-X, would you consider changing the name of this board to "Newbie AND Help" board? That might improve migration, but I'll take no bets on it.

The Carmageddon community could probably use an "I gotta Vent" board too. I suppose it is not too suprising that there is a lot of emotion brought to the posts here. After all, this isn't a "Cutsey Pacman" group.

(Side point - Just how many TETRIS versions DOES our planet need?! Will it require a law?)

So, here it is. The "How do you/where can I/Why won't it" board. Oh, and that guy named Boose will be here too. For all of you extremely new Newbies, here is some advice: When Boose starts using a LOT of vowels, don't listen to his advice for the next 12 hours -- and Format is NOT a Carmageddon cheat. :grin:

To those of you that feel offended to wear the title NEWBIE, I suggest trying my attitude towards it. It is not a sin to be a Newbie. Like pregnancy, it is a condition that passes with time -- though its not always pretty, and always leaves a mess.

I know what you mean mate. I hate being called a Newbie, it suggests that I don't know anything about Carma, but I do. But thats the stereotype of a newbie, and thats the way it always will be. OK, I don't know as much as a lot of the members, I don't know how to make cars and tracks, but I know how to make skins and edit some of the files.

I fell for that the frist time, the dick.

I hope your not dissing Boose, I wouldn't judge people that you hardly know.

If you don't want to be reffered to as by a "newbie", then quit your bitching about people calling you a "newbie", it just shows how much of an immature "newbie" you are. Maybe if you had enough sense, you'd stop to realise that you called yourself a "newbie", and noone else but yourself...if you call yourself a fucking vetern, then for fuck's sake, TRY TO ACT LIKE ONE!

I never complained about being called a newbie, so I am unsure where you got that idea. You appear to be quite upset about something, but it isn't me.

I was explaining to an earlier poster that being called a newbie was no big deal, and certainly not an insult, as HE felt it was.

You, Sir, need to cut back on the coffee. And, at 46 years of age, I suspect I am mature enough, thank you.

Oh... and nobody is "Disin'" Boose. At least not in this thread.

Envying him maybe... :grin:

Yeah, well, I thought I'd stop in here 'cause I'm a "newbie" and it only seemed the right thing to do..

I got Carma 1 hacking/chopping/slashing down to a science and am now a proud Carma 2 newbie..S'why I'm here, to see If I can't learn something from alla you vets out here... I've made a few cars and am just now learning how to tweak them to make them more realistic... You vets? Keep the righteous stuff coming..You guys rock.

Methinks us newbies could use a couple good tutorials on tricks and tips or mebbe a kinda "Plaything 2 for dumbass newbies" so you guys that have already figured it out could impart some of your wisdom to us slower critters.

(I wanna make tracks!) :smile:

Anyways, just a suggestion.

Hey.....I was raised right outside of San Jose. I used to ride around with my 13 yr old Mexican neighbor in his "brother's" car. You didn't even need a key to start it! Of course, later in life, I realized it really wasn't his brother's car. LOL :grin:

Well I think its about time I contributed a bit to this board. Actualy, since I'm one of the people that runs it, its my job to keep track on everything thats going on here, and I say, its going good :smile:

Glad to see that people are acting their age and that they are willing to help out each other.

Moonshadows: you're doing good work, keep it up.

Decimater: you're cool, you understand stuff.

Anyway, if you people wanna have a look, I'll be writing the occasional article for GamersComplex, for my own column called [url=http://www.gamerscomplex.com/index.php?page=articles/today_1">TrashCan[/url]. The first rant is up, so read on people.

just wanna agree...

newbie don't mean stoopid, and it don't necessarily mean new to computers, games or even carmageddon.

i've been playing Carma 1&2 for years... yet i still came to the newbies board when i got Carma3 TDR2K.

it's called humility. try it sometime :P

it don't feel so bad to ask for help sometimes, y'know?

keep up the good vibes...

The "newbie" term is used to name a guy that is new to a Message Board... (or for other things but mainly this...) and... no... its not insulting to be named newbie... everyone here was... (except The Beast and X coz they started this)... ok... I was a newbie 3 years ago... but it doesnt mean that I hadnt played carma1 or something... now im one of the veterans of carma at the age of 16! yeah baby!! whatever... just think whatever you wanna think of the word "newbie"... blah blah... you got it didnt ya?
