| Here's a couple of suggestive
instances I can recall just from this weekend alone along the line
of "Newbie ettiquette":
1. If you ask for, and are invited into a group because you are gossiping
about the need to group for exp...don't join and immediately pester
said group to take you to X high level mob so that we can load you
X item of eq. I come across this one from time to time...but had it
happen on two different occassions this weekend (Could have been the
same newbie in different forms).
2. Don't ask me to strip off items of my own personal eq and hand
it over to you. In this instance, it was the stack of skins my ranger
was wearing...skins I spent more hours on than I should have to acquire,
but they were my personal skins nonetheless. And then he had the nerve
to get pissy with me when I gave him a simple "No". To top it all
off..the char wasn't even a ranger, but a thief!
Now I know that I personally may have not been the best newbie, but
one thing I wasn't was rude and annoying, and it seems that anymore
the only newbies that stick out are the ones that are a problem. That
being said, If you don't want to stick out to the population of the
game in a an bad way, be polite and kind to other mudders.
Also, interaction between us 'old heads' and newbies should also be
a little more friendly - until a newbie has proven themselves to be
unworthy of kindness.
