Just want to say, as a newbro...these forums and 99.999% of the advice given on them are GREAT!

The ability to tap into such a great community and a wealth of info is an absolute boon.
So many Vets on here willing to help out and guide young fools like myself.

The forums are as much a part of the experience as the game itself, and the community here is doing its bit to retain members!

Just wanted to say thanks to all of you...it is appreciated (99.999% of the time )

Aw, you just haven't touched on the taboo subjects, or displayed an attitude. Words are free, but thanks for the appreciation post.

Now, ask us to tell you our most profitable trade routes, specifically. Or, propose that CCP make changes to the game to make it more like WoW or SWTOR or whatever.

You are welcome. We all love eager newbros.

Don't expect the same treatment in other subforums though...even from us. Roll

Oh we are rather helpfull in here but posting elsewhere in the forums can be bad for your health.
Generall discussion is "under the bridge" so to speak and crime and punisment is the dog pen.

Newbros tend to get a good bit more latitude than others but if you keep up the good attitude you should be fine.

Just keep in mind that other subforums (general discussion most notably) are hives of scum and trollery. Entertaining, though. Also, some of the folk in NCQ&A will gladly blow up your ship (fairly - meaning within allowed game mechanics) in game, but it's not personal. o/

I've been waiting for an opportunity to use this, now seems appropriate.

GD in a nutshell.

On topic, some of the topics that come up in here often teach the vets something new too; for example interestingly complicated uses of game mechanics and how to read the hints in the hacking system have both come up recently and taught me, a player for 7 years, something new.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Also, out of pod experiance (ope) is where the solvent abusers go to giggle and touch eachothers faces

Player feature and ideas discussion (f&i) is where you find the tinfoil hat wearing looneys and a small band of tired vets explaninig for the millionth time why it would be a bad idea to upgrade the server hardware by making it out of cheese

This is the eve forums. There can never be too many of the same kind of threads.

And yea, I just learned something today reading NQ&A. It is sad that so few newies even come here.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.

See, this is why I said 99.9999%

PERHAPS there is more than 1 person that wants to thank the community for their support, and seeing as how forum maintenance is not YOUR responsibility, do we really need your attitude. I'm pretty sure that if the thankyou and the grattitude posts become a nuisance, the mods will delete them.

Hael Morgan,

Thank you very much. These types of forum threads from new players is what makes us Vet's feel good.

That's what keeps us posting here, makes it all worth while knowing our time is appreciated for sharing hard to find info about the game.

I'm sure CCP also likes seeing these threads as well.

But--and hear me out on this--we get CCP to hire SpaceX to go to the Moon, bring back MOON CHEESE and custom order MOON CHEESE SERVERS.

THERE HE IS!! GET HIM!

He's the one who convinced CCP to have those ridiculous prices on the monocle, skill injectors, ship skins, and pretty much every feature they've added lately!

I was wondering why they'd be so ridiculous with pricing, and now we know: so they could pay for moon cheese.

Tip: There is a triangle on the left of the poster's name, which has a handy "hide posts" option for the exceptional trolls.

Very True .

Fun fact, that thread started my corpse collection,
before i wasent too bothered about it but now im an avid collector , only ones iv had a hand in crafting mind, i dont pick up any auld mangy thing i find.
Im up to about the 200 mark, might be more if i cleared out my cargo holds.
My fovorites are" Tippia", "Unsucessful at everything", "Leto Thule" and the amusingly ironic "I Got away".

Ah the Chloe thread, may it never defrost die.

I imagine the only thing better than a Tippia corpse is two of them.


Also, OP, welcome to Eve.
