You don't want to burn out on management. You need to enjoy it. Even consciensious members can pop up a picture with a link to this thread letting people know what they're doing wrong. That way the mod just has to delete the extra post/merge posts and leave it at that .
I know all about burn out with work and fun. You have to have ways to take care of yourself.
My first impression of these "forums" was the feeling of a common fear shared by everyone that are considered "pro": the fear of us dreadful n00bs!
While understanding why... i must point out that no one is an expert at first try and that certainly applies to all aspects of life. Noobs will therefore be present everywhere we look, throughout generations to come. HAIL TO THE NOOBS!
The word "noob" is also quite an extraordinary one. While mearly being a word to explain the concept of "one that is a beginner" it is often used in the context of cursewords, and should therefor be filtered out as such foul language... especially where "noobs" are generally considered less evolved forms of life then the otherwise experts of a specific skill. Certainly posting comments about various topics can evolve over time into something complex and masterful, if one gives it enough time and practise. But ultimately: when you die... do you want to be remembered as "joe, the expert poster of comments"? And that reminds us of how small and insignificant we all really are.. not just the noobs
And now, to try and make this a generally accepted comment, i will now quote a current action of mine with the "*" symbol, like so:
*frantically overlooks the spelling and grammar in the very "noobish" post he has written, with the power of a 100 expresso cups, and simultaneously raises his own blood pressure out of mind bogglingly high amounts of stress, by roughly 76%... before moving the shaking pointer of his mouse to the "add reply" button*
Keep posting them comments ppl, and for the sake of all things holy: WATCH YOUR SPELLING!!
