Todays newbie of the moment award goes to SilentBob!

After he attacked me on a horse he failed to kill me and retreated to another screen then relogged on, he then got off the horse and started attacking me but still failed to kill me. He ran in the water and went to Plan C.....Unstick Me.

Theres no such thing as newbies and oldbies on G2k1. If that were the case, then I am an oldbie to the server more so than at least 95% of you since I saw the G2k1 server during its beta stages.

I agree with Lycia. None of us are newbies on 2001 because we all started playing within the first two months of its openning. :)

Lycia

Hehe, I consider myself an oldbie. >.<

Right when I got home from the school the day Graal2001 came out I was one of the first on. I remember seeing these Bomys and saying "Wow! This is so cool!".

Well, leave it to lycia to have that kind of supremecist attitude!!!!

03-27-2001, 08:56 AM
I've played since version 2 out of 42 on newmain, there was almost nothing back then.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 08:59 AM
Alright, that's dandy... but I wish at least that there were no "oldbies"

Nai
03-27-2001, 09:00 AM
there cant be right now. We should still wait a few more versions of Newmain.

I find it degrading that you have to tell us you consider yourself an oldbie. :(

And whys that?

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 09:15 AM
It obviously sets up a social heirarchy which devalues the "non-oldbies."

Okay, then what would you call yourself?

FatherDante

I'm a player. I've never been an oldbie and I never will be.

Hang around the Shimyans and you'll get it.

FatherDante

I don't hang around them and I don't plan to anytime, so please just tell me what you mean.

When someone says, "winner", its sarcastic for "whatever" or something.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 09:28 AM
Oh, so it's a concession of withdrawl. I get it.

Well, that's something new. o.o

being a newbie isnt something bad...

Lycia
03-27-2001, 09:34 AM
I never said it was bad. I'm still considered a newbie by many, and I don't give a rats ***.

I believe oldbie/newbie has to do with attitude. An oldbie is a respectable person, who does not brag or think of him/her self to be above anyone else. While a newbie is the opposite. Of course those terms will never have a true definition, seeing that we all will never agree on a single definition for each.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but, being an oldbie has jack to do with respect. Its version number.

Why is it that on this board, if someone posts a .png image it won't open when you click it!? But if I save it to disk and open it, it works fine.

Thanks for acknowledging the fact that I am certainl ynot a newbie. And here for your enjoyment it is a picture I took of me killing him! AUGHAHAHAHAHA
PS: Yes I did have money on me...300gralat =p

Lycia
03-27-2001, 10:08 AM
I mean, if it'll make you feel better, I'll say it.


I, Lycia, am a newbie.

It doesn't make a difference to me.

When im saying newbie i mean acting like one

Accoring to the dictionary ( http://www.m-w.com ) the word "Oldbie" does not exist. Please stop making up definintions. You can have opinions, but you cannot tell someone they are wrong for having an opinon. Since opinions are never right or wrong.

"You're acting like a newbie... you're being such a newbie!" "Stop saying that, it's newbie-like".

I've seen very mature and wise newbies during the time I've spent playing Graal (More mature than some of these "oldbies" floating around), and I think we should all come up with a new term for someone who's ignorant, foolish, or immature.

They had a term for a rude, obnoxious, stupid, boring, idiotic, person who ruins everyone elses fun on another game I played.

A snert.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 11:55 AM
I consider myself an oldbie. >.<

If it doesn't make a difference to you, why did you say that?

SSSHHH Dante, watching Lycia contradict herself is fun!

Tyhm
03-27-2001, 12:05 PM
I wish I was still a newbie. Granted, I didn't have the mad skillz I have now, my tiling and NPC work was incredibly lame (I'm ashamed of the original version of the Ninja Quest...), but I had a whole lot more energy.
'course, back then I was on a catharsis binge off a string of rejections a mile long, but eh.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:08 PM
Did NPC scripting give you your pride back, Tyhm? :D

Tyhm
03-27-2001, 12:35 PM
Nope. Never got it back. Dunno if I had that much to begin with...hubris and all. But that's the whole point of a catharsis, you don't heal so much as distract yourself from the pain. But that's life.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:37 PM
awww Tyhm.... that's depressing. :(

Tyhm
03-27-2001, 12:39 PM
Yeah, that's life too.
I do my best work when I'm in pain.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:41 PM
Well, that's just frightening, but you do such good work! :D

Lycia
03-27-2001, 12:41 PM
I know another reason why Tyhm's in pain.

*shakes her fist at a certain female*

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:43 PM
I'd hope he's a little more emotionally resillient than that.

Hmmmm. I don't consider myself an oldbie or a newbie. But if I had to say.....
If 10 is oldbie and 1 is newbie, Id be a 8...I think.
But who really cares

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:49 PM
How many times do I have to tell you to change it to pingüino?

Tyhm
03-27-2001, 12:49 PM
Nah, nah, I appreciate the sentiment, but ShadowFox didn't do all this to me. It was way before her time anyway, and my work hasn't actually improved lately...just kinda flatlined...I can't believe I have to document all these variables by hand...Notepad can't even handle it...

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 12:50 PM
Why not use wordpad? :D

Tyhm
03-27-2001, 01:01 PM
Yeah, I'm using Wordpad now, just not liking it because it's mad slow.

FatherDante
03-27-2001, 01:02 PM
Understandable. Perhaps you might want to purchase a word processing program such as MS word or WordPerfect? I believe they usually function much faster. I'm quite satisfied with my MS word.

Lycia
03-27-2001, 01:05 PM
Hmmmm, another good question to ask..

Read the thread entitled: What kind of computer do you have?
