    Icon8 We Are Here For Support

    I think this is the main reason for loggin into this forums, to look for support, opinions on other people experience with certain brand, products, etc.

    Sooooo whenever someone asks for an opinion on certain product that is not the best for you, don't begin telling the guy that it's thrash, you could do better, etc. just answer the question.

    Not everybody can afford W7, XXX (the baby of the forum), JL 1000/1, and so on
    so if someone have a no brand name equipment guide to do his best with what he have because maybe that is what he can afford.

    Re: We Are Here For Support

    1. I treat all the new guys equally. If one decides to ask a question about equipment choices, and they're about to make a bad decision, I have no problem calling it what it is and saying that they could do better. I think that's helpful, and is part of what we're here for. If Sub A and Sub B both cost the same, but Sub B is an overpriced, retail POS, no, I'm not going to be content with just "doing the best with what he has".

    2. I don't have a W7. I don't have a XXX, or a 1000/1. Nor do I recommend any of those products for the sake of recommending them.

    3. Less than a month? Get the hang of things first

    Jack Frost, yes I'm a member from less than a month, but a reader for a while now.

    So I got the hang of this long time ago.

    I think that you didn't got what I mean, what I'm saying is to stop telling people that their stuff is crap, and just give them the needed help.

    If someone already owns the product, it's already too late for an "option" decision or comparison, he just want support to do his best with what he got, even if we all know is a POS.

    Guys are supposed to let other guys know thier stuff is crap.. Always something better and its our job to help that person and ourselves reach that next level.



    Would you let your friend buy a Kia over a Chevy, Date a Fat chick over a Skinny one, or eat at McDonalds when Wendy's is down the road.. Nope..

    IMO..

    Hey Frosty

    I don't think he was talking about you specifically. I have kept an eye on things and you leave good, non-biased advice...for what its worth.

    I do believe there are a few nuckleheads on here that should look at your advice practices and start following your example.

    I agree with the original poster.

    I can be a ********, but its in good fun. If a noob is willing to learn and forget about all the myths he/she has learned, I am there to help them. One thing that wasn't said is alot of noobs already have to listen also, and read the stickies. Nothing is better than learning things yourself, much more gratifying.

    You do have to be careful online, plenty of people shout about how great their things are ONLY because they have them. They either want to think they got a good deal, want others to think they are leet, or just dont have enough experiance to really make an informed opinion.

    I always ask what their budget is and go from there.

    But if they keep repeating the same question over and over like this profile vs. this profile, or my sherwood amp this and that, yeah. LOOK OUT!

    Re: We Are Here For Support

    my most hated is when people who dont have RE, never heard em, and yet still recomment them.

    as for noob bashing, i see it as a right of passage. i too once asked "what will i hit with X sub in so and so box". u live and u learn and then get luvs.
