    real new newbie

    I guess I am alone on this but till now I have never posted on any forum anywhere! It is real confusing, is the idea to get bars and CP or doesnt it matter,
    I am the ultimate computer idiot and think I got here by fluke.
    at the moment I have time on my hands (and a plaster on my leg!) and have been a Broncos fan for the 12 years of my married life (husband not Denver fan but hey) and thought this would probably be the friendliest place to spend time, and learn more stuff about my team.
    I hope that sounds right!

    Not only is this the friendliest place, but it is also the BEST place.
    Welcome aboard.
    Getting the bars and CP's are just a little bonus, some people may stress trying to get them, but they are not a must.
    CP's are generally given when someone enjoys or approves of your post, you can also give them by clicking on the little scale in the top right corner of someones post and you can leave a little message or sign it or whatever you wish. alot of people appreciate getting them because the more you get, the higher you advance in the ranks. there are little perks the higher you get. But you can read more about all of that in the different posts of this thread.

    Again welcome and enjoy yourself.

    I generally scan through most of the threads, never know when I might find something that interests me. General Discussions and Anything but Football are usually the most popular.

    And remember, don't be afraid to ask questions.

    How long does it take the average user to get to 100 CP?

    Well, it depends on how good of a poster you are!

    If your pretty good, not long at all.

    If you suck, it may be awhile.


    Actually, there's alot more to it than just that but the point is "good posting" definatly won't hurt.

    well, I do most of my posting over on the smack boards, so I doubt that the people I have been smacking (esp. the PATS fans) will be giving me much CP

    If it's good smack, other Bronco fans will.

    That's not bad!

    The point is to kind of build a reputation of good posts...the more good posts you make...including good smack...the better!

    I'm not gonna read through all the posts, so if this is here already I'm sorry.

    When giving CPs state the reason and sign it..

    Something like this

    Good post** JrWiz

    Good analysis of the problem** JrWiz




    It gives those who received a chance to evaluate who it came from and why they got it.

    It is nice to know who is on your side in an issue.

    Sometimes when I have received a point, I give one back considering the comments. Perhaps not on that topic, but sometimes when this member responds to the subject.

    (Only a few people have more than 1000 points, so usually it's about how long they've been a member).


    ...It's also a bit of a reflection on what percentage of a particular poster's life is wasted away on these boards. (No offense to anyone here, of course.)

    Best of luck, TT!

    sbutk: i can see why Denver is taking TO's right now [trailing by 7, with 30 seconds left in the half]. but why Oakland???

    Captain Lori: You are trying to figure out the Raiders. Try figuring out women instead; it's probably much easier.
