I’ve noticed an awful lot of newbie bashing in the last few days. I know sometimes newbies post things that seem annoying or repetitive, and it can feel frustrating when they didn’t read all the rules before they came and posted here. But I want to point out a few things about this community that are different from many other forum communities that may cause some confusion for new members.
- The intro thread. I understand it was implemented for a reason, and I don’t have any problem with it, however, we should be aware that this is a rule specific to these forums and not found in most other internet communities.
- The guideline about doing a search before you ask a question and the fact that thread necromancy is permitted (and even encouraged). I understand that we are talking about bleeding edge occult practices here, compared to some other places that like to stick to the things by the medieval or even earlier book, so even some post from the beginning of this forum is going to seem brand new and even controversial in a more mainstream magical community.
Remember, everyone here was once a newbie too, even if it was many lifetimes ago.
