After reading this particular thread, I can say with some assurance that almost everyone who has posted here agrees on two things:

A) We are not aware of who 'wark2' is and thus he has no legendary status, despite his claims to the contrary

and

B) Your name cannot be "***" unless it is either your given name, or you have legally changed it.

End.

You automaticly claiming you've been playing since 1.2 has ruined it for you. When the first post by someone, includes them saying that they're an oldbie and have been playing since ZO, or 1.2, etc makes me think you are a newcomer to graal, trying to get respect by lieing on which version you started in. I don't care what version you started i, and you will get no more respect from me, then someone who's been playing since..say.. 2.1. Going around telling everyone you're an oldbie and have been play from so and so version has already lowered my respect for you.

I'd have to agree with that. Oldbie-ism is more than just having played for long amounts of time anyway. It's a state of mind. I don't really care if a person has played since the very beginning, if they're an immature *******, 'n00b' is still going to pop into my mind. Real oldbies don't normally try to show it off.

Oldbie stuff isn't fun anymore.
It was cool at first, but then too many people kept making it stupid by making it a social class seperation in Graal.
Take this thread for instance. Somebody who we don't seem to have ever met, comming onto Graal saying they started in whichever version(we do not care what version you started in).

In my opinion, you stop being a newbie whenever it is you finally get the hang of things and begin to truly fit in. The more honorable you are, the faster this will happen. I recall that it didn't take me long to pass out of n00bism fairly quickly, but the real question is, when does oldbieism begin? >=P

Oldbie..newbie...these don't make you anymore different, then the next person playing Graal. We are all players of Graal, who cares when we started? Does starting sooner then another make someone better then a newer player? Does the "title" oldbie, mean someone is better then a "newbie"--a "n00b"? Also, there is no "oldbie-ism"; that's just something to make someone feel better about themself. "Real oldbies don't normally try to show it off", what's up with that statement? It should not make a difference what version you started in; wether you are an "oldbie" or a "newbie". People seem to think that an "oldbie" is better, more intelligent, better respected, etc then a newer player. And that thinking has lead to all these newer players thinking that the only way they'll be respected, is by claiming they started playing Graal long ago...and people wonder why new players claim they are "oldbies".

Basically, the people who are really elders of the game, know who the other elders of the game are, and have no need to "show off" themselves as being oldbies. So I guess the main point is...oldbies was a stupid fad that was created for fun, but ended up becomming a stupid classification which no longer has any good meaning to it.

Perhaps my point was not made entirely clear. lol What I was trying to establish is that the terms 'oldbie' and 'newbie' are, at least in the linear sense, outdated. It is my belief that they should be reapplied in terms of how a player 'carries himself' and the level of maturity that they show in their dealings with others. Under this system, the term 'newbie' would be applied to those who seem to be somewhat, shall we say, immature, while the term 'oldbie' falls to those who play the game with chivalry.

I am an oldbie, pretty much.. I've been around for over 2 years.. I present myself reasonably intelligent in the forums, but I act like a fool on graal, it's just who I am.
Newbies..oldbie, they matter. The older players are obviously treated with a higher level of respect and are far more well known than someone called Bob9070953 that has been playing for 3 minutes to someone like Lord Chimp, Antago, SuperNick who has been playing for yonks.

The newer players than claim to have been playing since the beginning make it blatently obvious by saying 'AWW I STARTED IN ZO BUT LEFT AND CAME BACK TODAY' or something similarly stupid. Being a 'newbie' or an 'oldbie' is completely different. When we started were the good days of graal, we're just the decendants of the old and preferred graal, back in the day of the bottle, dash attack, classic guild to guild wars.

I don't think you should wonder why the newer players want to known as oldbies, it is obvious, what we should be asking is why they bother with the pithy excuses they make and why they must degrade themselves by making lies to be cool to the graal community.

You're missing my point I think; I could be wrong though.
It shouldn't matter when someone started, it should only matter how they act...

Newbies..oldbie, they matter. The older players are obviously treated with a higher level of respect and are far more well known than someone called Bob9070953 that has been playing for 3 minutes to someone like Lord Chimp, Antago, SuperNick who has been playing for yonks.

No they don't matter... it's used either as a title for someone people should automaticly repsect, and who must be super smart because they've been playing for a year or two.. or soemone who has just begun to play... The titles themselves should have never been introduced to Graal (I guess newbie couldn't be helped). But the term "newbie" and/or "n00b" is used, almost in a derogatory(sp) sense now-a-days. Do you judge someone by their online hours also? Does more hours = greater respect? better yet, how about all these "newbies" have to have a large buble on them so everyone knows they're new and can automaticly begin to make fun of them, and put them down, on site.

The newer players than claim to have been playing since the beginning make it blatently obvious by saying 'AWW I STARTED IN ZO BUT LEFT AND CAME BACK TODAY' or something similarly stupid. Being a 'newbie' or an 'oldbie' is completely different.

No it isn't...all that is different is the changing of three letters..and automatic assumation an "oldbie" is better then a "newbie".

When we started were the good days of graal, we're just the decendants of the old and preferred graal, back in the day of the bottle, dash attack, classic guild to guild wars.

I don't think you should wonder why the newer players want to known as oldbies, it is obvious, what we should be asking is why they bother with the pithy excuses they make and why they must degrade themselves by making lies to be cool to the graal community.

Possibley because of people like you, who seem to think there is...light years of differnce between someone who is a "newbie" and someone who is an "oldbie".

Oldbies don't claim anything, most of us are titled by others.
So, what you're trying to say, is someone that just started then should be respected because he acts intelligent, smart and all the rest of it, that to me, seems wrong.
