When i was new to this site, i searched around quite a bit. I didn't ask stupid questions that resulted in "do a search". There's alot of info here, but u just have to search. And I still search till this day!

if your friend is such a "guru" why is he depending on a forum for answers?
Because every car has its quirks and tricks to it, a large base of knowledgeable people is one of the most helpful things you can have. Just because you know a lot about cars doesn't mean you know everything about a specific model.

PM is a private message, where you can send messages to other, kinda like email, but just for the site.

Forums are usually set up to read the most recent post first, therefore on for sale threads and threads people find important, they will write something...anything to get the post back to the top of the forum so it is visible to anyone that looks inside that specific thread.

Hope that helps.

his second paragraph describes a bump, its just adding a post, typically to a for sale post, in order to get it displaying at the top of a forum again.

I thought this should surface again, and not so you can just skip to the last page and read this post you are reading now, stop reading what I'm typing and go back to page one

I Have Been Register On This Site For Over A Year. Don't Get On Alot, Because Of A Busy Schedule. I Guess Because I Don't Have Enough Posts, I Am Still A New B. I Have An 02 Is, And Love The Car. Wouln't Drive Anything Else. But I Have To Say, I Have Been Turned Off By Some People On This Site. Before I Post, I Make Sure My Question Has Not Been Answered. I Have A Ste Of Baccarat Wheel With Toyo Zr1 Proxys I Wanted To Sell, I Tried To Contact The Administrator, About Posting Them, But I Don't Have Enough Posts. Then They Say If You Just Start Posting To Bump Up Your Score, They Will Spam You. So I Try To Find Out The Best Way To Go About It, And This Guy Won't Even Answer My Emails. I Have Sent Him 2 Already. Anybody Have Any Suggestions?? So I Can Relate To People Disrespecting New B"s

In order to post in the member sale/trade forums, you need to have 30 posts on the site. This is a measure to keep people from simply signing up and selling things right away, which could lead to scamming, since there is very little effort involved (and they don't contribute either if they don't stick around). We don't like it however, when a newbie comes on and starts bumping random old threads with random comments (and we will notice). Just stick around the site for a while and try to comment on some current threads. Add your input, toss out some ideas.

NB: don't capitalize the first letter of every word, it makes it a bit harder to read.

Well, I pretty much skipped from page one to seven of this forum because its repetitive (not a bad thing, just not what I want to read right now) and I've got a comment to make - I'm new as hell to this site. The first time I ever came on was a couple of weeks ago, and the first thing I did was post - I haven't stopped posting. I dont care if someone jumps down my throat - I simply pm them, weinsult each other and then smooth things over with sorries. Its happened a few times already. I completely agree with what everyone is saying about allowing newbs, like myself, a little slack - but come on, it definately aint all bad. this site is awesome!!!

newbie.....maybe the problem is the fact that the label "newbie" sounds like some kind of munchkin. They should just call us munchkins. or bloobers. or pepe's. no respect i tell ya, no respect.

I'm glad this is being said to all of us.

Honestly, I've been one of those members giving a sarcastic response or telling a newbie to search when they need to just get the feel of the place. But in all honesty, who hasn't?

There newbies, what do you expect. If you have nothing 'informational' to respond about in a thread. Then leave your 0.02 out.

This forum does not need this.

The new guys need to be respected or weather they have hopes of owning a Lex, or recently have. And we are here to welcome them. Not scare them away.

So on behalf of my mistakes. I apolozize. And +rep to the thread starter.

Plus Rep to the thread starter. Oh and think about this. Just because someone is a newb to this forum means they are new to the is300, lexus, the 2JZ or cars period?????? No so maybe people on the forum should think about that b4 they go jumping all over someone b/c their title is new or they have a low post count.

As a New person I appreciate this thread and wish people would re-read it every once in a while. I have only been on here a few weeks and am a New IS owner. So far I have received more Rude unneeded replies then I actually have received help or advice from. While reading previous topics I see more childish replies. I'm a member of allot of other car forums and have been on them for years and I have NEVER seen so many useless replies and complete lack of respect towards new people or people asking simple easy questions that may be common sense to allot of other people.

If you see a comment or thread that has already been covered then why bother wasting your own time telling them it's already been covered? All that does it make you look like a Jerk. Allot of the threads are years old. Maybe it's time to ask some of the same questions to get NEW answers or different input.

I'm a newb here. Forum seems pretty typical of most automotive forums I'm a part of. Some boards have abusive admins and their population, while knowledgeable is worthless. This one doesn't seem that way. I will say there is a lot of conflicting information if you spend any time reading posts so it's easy to see how someone would put in the due diligence searching for answers only to be more confused than they started. In any case, seems like a good forum. Happy to be a part of it!
