Jee-wilikers Batman! There's a lot of Newbies around!

Just seems that there's a new craze of newbies here...don't quite know if this is a good or bad thing...just pointing out the obvious again.
Maybe it's due to the recent successes of ATYCLB and the tour? I guess it was to be expected...
And I feel that we're to expect a lot more A/S/L "Getting to know you" threads...

WELCOME EVERYONE!

------------------
Your Catholic blues
Your convent shoes
Your stick-on tattoos
Now they're making the news
Your holy war
Your northern star
Your sermon on the mount
From the boot of your car

Please

Who says everything J. Swallow says is right? Who is he, God?
That makes Sicy a newbie too

By newbies I mean everyone registered in the past few months. I'm a newbie, sure. But I've spent a few months here at least...
DO we count newbies by the time they've spent here or their # of posts?

I think my response was a little more, um, better spoken...and not quite so harsh...

So, k, maybe I am considered a newbie. Great. Whoopee. Hand me my award. I was just pointing out that in the past few months there seems to be an increase in posters here. Why do I have to get all defensive?

hey, sweetest_thing! You are correct. I too have noticed an increase in the number of new members around here. Probably has a lot to do with the continuing success of the tour and the new album as well as U2's higher profile on TV and media lately. But it's neither here nor there as far as "who's better? newbies or oldies?" We're all fans...nuff said. I think that the major issue when we get an influx of new people is the usual sorting out how the forum works, who's who, etc. Sometimes those of us who have been here for (eek!) years now have to be patient when threads that have been rehashed 50million times are resurrected. (ie. What's your favorite album?) And I think new folks ought to be open and oberservant about how life around here works and not get all worked up if an "oldie" corrects them or lets them know how things are generally done around here. I know for myself, it's always in a spirit of camaraderie and not snobbery. I want new folks to feel at home here and become part of the gang.

Anyways, that's my long ramble. Probably has nothing to do with the thread, but hey I'm good at that.

p.s. I don't think there is an official cut-off line for passing from newbiedom into not-so-newbiedom. Take everything mr. swallow says with a grain of salt.

I agree.. it's sad that even here among intelligent and sensible people, a "label"
such as "newbie" will prevent some from taking us seriously on points, comments and issues. oh well.

Here here! I've been a fan for years...not all of us knew about Interference when it first came out, were interested, or had the internet.

I say newbie is anyone who signed on after the release ATYCLB.

Now those were the days. Riversteed (was it him?) finding the 30 second snippets to all the songs. Arguing about how good the songs were solely based on the snippets. Debating wether or not to stay an ATYCLB virgin, or downloading the songs on napster. wow, has it been over a year already??

Those were the days. Not like the shit weve got around here now

Oh, and it doesnt matter how many time you post. I may have only 300 or so posts, but I make them count!
