beta  wrote  (View  Post):                
See...  I  have  replied  ROFL  
 IMHO  its  better  that  the  seniors  (seniority  in  hobby  and  not  IAH)  don't  post  in  each  and  every  post.  Its  better  to  let  others  respond  and  only  come  into  the  picture  when  some  wrong  advice  has  been  posted.                

 Thanks,  Beta.  But  all  this  happened  in  a  time  long  long  ago  in  a  Galaxy  far  far  away.  Chuckle  
 
 Continued.....
 
 It  was  time  to  go  home.  But  I  was  loathe  to  turn  off  my  monitor.
 
 With  a  heavy  heart  I  left  for  home.  Disturbed  sleep.  next  day  I  was  early  to  my  factory.  But  hesitant  to  log  on  to  IAH.  What  if  no  one  has  replied  to  me?  But  I  did  and  hallelujah  Cheering  .  Madan  had  replied.  Madan  was  my  hero!.  My  joy  knew  no  bounds.  All  was  well  with  the  world  again.
 Who  said  I  was  never  going  to  post  on  IAH  again?
 
 But  being  human  I  started  wondering  after  a  while.  Why  didn't  Adip  and  Trevor  reply.  Were  they  acting  high  and  mighty?  There  is  no  satisfying  some  people!   ROFL  
 
 Time  went  by.....
 I  was  posting  in  the  threads  started  by  other  people.  I  wanted  to  start  my  own  thread.  I  wanted  a  lot  of  replies  in  my  thread  and  I  wanted  it  to  go  on  for  a  long  time.
 Which  one  to  start?  Having  a  single,  fish  only  aquarium  I  did  not  have  much  choice.  I  visited  other  sites  to  find  out  their  hot  topics.  But  it  went  over  my  head.  I  decided  to  stick  to  something  I  could  understand  and  post.  SICK  FISHES!  This  topic  never  failed  to  get  replies.
 So  I  started  a  thread  "ICH  on  my  tiger  sharks,  Help!"  Again  the  same  anxiety.  Will  people  post  or  not.  Great,  a  reply.  I  eagerly  opened  the  thread.  A  senior  member  had  given  a  link  to  an  earlier  thread  about  ICH  and  asked  me  to  go  through  it.   Mad   My  thread  was  ruined.  I  wanted  people  to  post  and  I  was  given  a  link  to  a  thread  which  I  had  already  read.  Why  couldn't  this  senior  mind  his  own  business?
 
 More  time  went  by.....
 I  had  started  a  couple  of  my  own  threads.  People,  especially  other  newbies  were  posting.  This  was  not  to  my  satisfaction.  I  wanted  more  seniors  to  post.  What  to  do?  I  started  logging  on  the  threads  by  seniors  and  started  appreciating  each  and  ever  one  of  their  posts.  This  had  the  dual  advantage  of  making  them  post  in  my  threads  and  also  increasing  my  post  count!  Two  birds  with  one  stone,  you  see  Very Happy  But  this  also  did  not  work  well.  A  couple  of  seniors  did  post  out  of  politeness,  But  the  rest  stayed  away.  Also  the  other  newbies  started  snickering  at  my  apple  polishing  Mad  Not  good  at  all  for  my  reputation.
 
 Even  more  time  went  by......
 I  started  noticing  that  some  people(newbies)  were  always  posting  after  me  and  in  support  of  me.  and  I  was  reciprocating  to  them  in  the  same  manner.  Most  of  these  newbies  were  from  my  home  town,  or  from  my  present  location  or  we  were  speaking  the  same  lingo.
 There  was  a  comfort  zone  here.  let  us  call  them  A,B  and  C.I  would  start  a  thread,  and  then  'A'  would  post.  After  a  while  as  the  thread  went  down  'B'  would  post  and  bring  it  up  and  so  on  and  so  forth.  But  if  anyone  new  came  along  we  would  start  posting  pointedly  at  each  other  and  ignore  him.  Who  is  he  anyway?  But  after  a  while  this  also  failed.  Since  how  many  post  can  four  people  post  in  each  other's  thread?  The  threads  were  beginning  to  look  like  chat  room  ROFL  
 
 Time  keeps  going  by  anyways.....
 All  the  above  were  not  bearing  the  results.  I  started  re-examining  my  motive.  Was  I  here  to  create  a  name  for  myself  or  was  it  to  improve  my  hobby?  Clearly  the  initial  motive  was  to  improve  my  hobby.  But  looking  at  my  name  on  the  monitor  had  turned  my  head  and  I  wanted  more  and  more  of  the  same.  I  was  turning  into  a  regular  megalomaniac.  This  was  not  what  I  wanted  Sad  
 
 This  retrospection  was  making  me  a  older  newbie.
 
 To  be  continued.....
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Fantastic  thread,  Nayak.   Thumb Up  
 
 Reminds  all  the  flashback  I  went  across,  first  as  a  newbie  to  the  city  and  mainly,  as  I  was  new  to  online  communities  of  any  sort.  I  became  a  member  somewhere  towards  the  end  of  2003,  but  my  first  (somewhat  hesitant)  post  was  almost  after  6  long  months,  as  to  where  would  my  childish  comments  stand  among  the  older  members.  Ever  since,  have  been  logging  in  almost  300+  out  of  365  days  through  various  internet  centres  until  middle  of  2008.
 
 Now  that  I  got  the  internet  at  home,  what  else  can  I  say?   Very Happy  
 
 Sorry  for  the  mini  hijack,  mate.   Smile

 THE  OLDER  NEWBIE,  Now  that  is  intresting.
 
 For  someone  in  the  hobby  for  many  years  now  and  to  sitll  call  himself  an  Older  Newbie  is  being  modest,  Thanks  To  you  being  a  newbie  sounds  good,prestigious  infact.
