    [QUOTE]See here is what I don't get... Is there a certain amount of posts your allowed a week before you can just post as many times as you want an not come off as "overeager and annoying". That's what I guess confuses me. At what point are you allowed to give your opinions and post freely before coming off as the annoying new person?

    I think you've gotten better too, and I like you as well, but this ^^ is the kind of thing that comes across as whiny/overeager/"when will you girls like me?"
    Late welcome to you, btw :^)

    It's something that a lot of newer people struggle with, and I did at one point too.

    You just have to get a good "feel" of the board. No, there aren't rules to it, but it's just the way things work around here. You seem nice, though.

    As far as the overeager part---be yourself, don't try to impress people, because being the true you is usually the most impressive.

    Posted by texagj[/QUOTE]

    Nah, it's just that when someone jumps right in (which is cool and all, don't get me wrong) it takes a little while for everyone to get used to you. We don't know much about you yet. We're not sure if you'll be cool or funny or smart or what kind of personality you'll have and how you'll fit in. So far, it seems like you give pretty good advice. Similar to the "party line" so to speak, but you haven't done anything dumb. ;-)

    You're really nice and all, it just comes off like you're trying to agree with and please everyone. Kind of like you don;t have your own opinion. At least that's how I see it.

    texas - for me the jury is still out on you - sometimes i agree with OWN and I think you're trying a little too hard (like the post you made above about how many posts will it take) - and then other times you make me laugh

    Posted by JenGin74[/QUOTE]

    That's it in a nutshell, JenGin.  Tex, here's the best example I can think of:  when Amoro was banned, you were ALL UP IN ARMS over it "How dare they take away our Amoro!  That's total bullshit!" when, from my point of view anyway, you really didn't know what you were talking about.  You seemed (again, just to me) to sense that the majority of posters were upset by it and you wanted to fit in, so you manufactured some outrage over something you really didn't understand. 


    That's all.  I have done it, too - jumped into threads where I really didn't understand the underlying dynamics.  Boy howdy, have I done it - and I showed my ass and I took my lumps for it and learned.  Like I said, you have a lot going for you.  Just be yourself.  It's okay if people disagree with you.

    The funny thing is, I'm pretty sure she was being facetious when she asked how many posts it would take.  I don't think she was seriously asking with puppy dog eyes or anything. 

    Fische, what do you expect she'll do?  If she comes here at all, she'll never admit it.
