Er, you might want to check your custom title.

 

:roflmao:

 

(shrug)

 

It was frickin' funny while it lasted.

 

:gossip: If you let everyone know custom titles won't be special anymore.

 

You are the Rosie Ruiz of custom titles.

Great idea for a thread. I could have used some of this information when I was new (not that long ago). One thing I would change is the title name to HELPFUL GUIDE FOR NEW MEMBERS. It sounds more inviting and less...condescending for new people.

 

I hope this thread gets stickied. It would be a great help for new members. :)

This was tried previously - took all of 5 mins before it turned into a "I'm more of an expert than you are" contest.

 

It's all good. No one has to be an 'expert' - rather a traffic director to help people find the answers they seek. AND, multiple people can be listed under each category (shrug)

 

Doesn't have to devolve into madness... :wishluck:

 

Where's the fun in that? :devil:

 

 

But seriously, good ideas guys! WTTB noobs ( in the most inviting sense)

My suggestion to add to the main list would be to include a "Ask a Boardie a Question" section where volunteers can have there username linked to a PM so that newcomers can ask (what they may perceive as a stupid) question to someone who has been around longer without the fear of a hell-storm. We can even include topics we are more familiar with to aid newcomers. Example: key books, moderns, silver age, CGC grading, CGC fees, turn around times, page quality, etc.

 

I'll volunteer to help here (if HS will likes the idea) and ask for other volunteers as well (once again, if HS likes the idea).

 

What the link would look like:

 

ASK A BOARDIE A QUESTION

 

For GOLDEN AGE

Boardie

 

For SILVER AGE

Boardie

 

For BRONZE AGE

Boardie

 

For COPPER AGE

Boardie

 

For MODERN AGE

Ask ItsJustRyan

 

For GRADING (CGC) Questions

Boardie

 

For RESTORATION Detection

Boardie

 

For SELLING on the BOARDS

Boardie

 

Etc.

 

Etc.

 

Etc.

 

 

HS could wrap this in a spoiler in the main list and volunteers could offer to help on selected topics.

 

Just an idea. Take it or leave it. Volunteers can help in more than one content area as well. Someone may be knowledgable on restoration detection and GA books, so they could volunteer to be listed under both header...

Something similar, thread link

Niche Collecting/Subject Matter Experts

 

My favorite part of that thread:

 

SPECIALTY EXPERTS

 

Comic Grade

Mr. 9.8--9.8 And above, White PQ only.

 

Doesn't matter which book you have - as long as it's a 9.8 (or above), Mr. 9.8 is the go-to expert. But only if they have white pages.

 

lol

I remember that, that cracked me up. :roflmao:

Is there a section on spooned words?

 

On a related note,is there a section regarding non spooned words that still attract the ire of the mods?

 

Thanks.
