    Everyone has to start somewhere. And we encourage noobs to post. Sure, some will make mistakes, and some won't, but remember that you were a noob once too . . .

    Not to worry . . . They will have to learn. and if they don't, then you can guess what happens next . . .

    Ditto on what Wiz says. Everyone has to start somewhere.

    Let them live and learn, it's not doing you any harm.

    Ive noticed there have been a few really smart ones recently, started and joined in with some good discussions. Of course there will always be " I want I want" type but they soon learn once they get a little flame. ;)

    i think everybody has a learning curve and most of them(i m new also) are testing the waters.You cannot expect from a noob to give you business ideas or tricks to do make more money with your websites.
    As i said and you can see also i m not the kind of guy who knows too much and i don't want to have fights with older members but at the speed i m posting (rare) you can consider me a noob even after 2 years after i got my account activated.Ad with questions like this:
    "Justhost suspended my account, what I do now?"
    "What does NS1.URL.com mean?Nd how to hide my hosting provider like that"
    "How do YOU manage all your Sites, Accounts, etc."
    "Nitin Khanna stole a domain to a site I paid $17,000 for..."

    you sound noober than me. No offence mate but from the moment you don t have too many replies to your threads that means that you are not so "black as you think"

    Cheers

    Just because I'm new to the forum doesn't mean I'm new to the industry

    the industry is not what we are talking about... we are talking about the way this board is run.
    I think there should be a trial period for new accounts where they can only post in certain categories until the achieved number of posts. I think it would benefit everyone to have to look around a little more before being able to add into the discussion. A lot of people throw out links etc and then claim "well i didnt know"...if we let everyone go on that route then we could be in trouble.
    Just an idea...

    I agree with WIZ... at some point we are start from a lowly level.. ;)
    when i join BHW, i have no clue what the heck is IM.... I just found out BHW from google when i search something.. and i check it... and now i am here.. :)

    but i prefer to read and read and read than to posts and ask questions.. there is enough questions here.. :)

    soo if some noobs ask questions, let's try to answer them as politely as people but kick in the face.. i have seen lots of noobs questions - instead of helping them older arrogant members kick them right away... they are annoying but ohh well BHW is intended for noobs not just for expert people in IM... :)

    They do have some restricted sections like Joint Ventures. Which is one I ran into already.

    It's called the organizational structure. It works like a food pyramid. Only very few at the top know 110% what they are doing, while a decent size group knows what there doing, but could learn more, and most have no idea about anything but would like to. This doesn't just apply in business either, but this same can be seen playing video games, grade school, communication skill, ANYTHING! If everyone was good at IM'ing then YOU would be making zero money, because it would be oversaturated (most likely).

    Heres a graph to fully explain what I mean:
