Default New Members Please Read This... A Non-Admin Perspective On Diesel Bombers

This is a welcome and what should I expect from the NON-Staff members of Diesel Bombers. I started out as a Diesel Newbie on this site. The site and I pretty much started in the diesel world together back in March of 07, now a year and a half later I have two diesels (daily driver and a pulling truck), am sponsor of this site and spend quite a bit of time on here with my diesel brothers and sisters. So here are some things I have picked up along the way. Also, I hope the general membership will add in tips and/or tricks to help find some of the sites secrets for the newcomers to the site.


1. We are a family... This is just like your family at home. If you treat us with respect, we will do the same toward you. If you need help or advice and we are here for you. This includes help with your truck, life, or when you just need a shoulder to cry on when the world has kicked you in the Jimmy.

2. When you do something stupid... we are going to laugh at you... then help you fix it and make it better. Again, we are family... It's our job.

3. If you stick up a thread looking for opinions... expect to get them... Good bad or indifferent we are going to give it to you. Don’t get upset if someone tells you that an Idea you have wont work. Find out why they say this... Maybe they have been there and tried it. Maybe they have a little more knowledge in the field then you. On the other hand, they might not have a clue what they are talking about. It’s up to you to pick through it all... but for the most part, the general public will help you pick out these people.

4. We all will not get along all the time... Grow up, Get Over it and Move on... We are a very passionate group and sometimes stuff gets heated with all the opinions running around (right Eric )... I won’t say here what they say about opinions, if you don't know PM me and I'll fill you in.

5. Admin/Mods have a job to do... If you act stupid and break the rules... they will take care of you. Seen them do it. For the most part they are a lot more laid back then most other sites. But don't take advantage.

6. This site is not just for truck info. There are all sorts of funny pictures, stories, jokes and tons of other general things in other sections like the Off-topic, Show and Tell and in the Badlands. If you get a funny e-mail, read an interesting news story, or just had something happen to you that day by all means share it with us! Oh and speaking of the Badlands...

7. The Badlands... Get a password from <acronym title="Better Off Modified Baby">Bomb</acronym> Squad and don't come in unless you don’t get offended easily... Nuff said

8. For the most parts Monday Nights are chat nights. Come in, say hello and hang out. As the night goes on though things start to move from PG to closer to the R side of things though so be forewarned

9. Go into your User CP (left hand side near the top) and fill out as much as possible! This helps in a couple ways; first we know what kind of truck you have and what you have done to it for when you need advice, Second some of us just like to read about the people we become friends with.

10. Don't be Cocky... However badass you think you or your truck is there is someone out there bigger and badder. We will give you all the respect in the world until you quit giving it to us.

11. If you are reading a topic and don't understand what and why it was done or think you have a better idea - speak up.... If a comment or suggestion you make can save my engine and wallet I WANT TO HEAR IT!!! This goes back to the opinion thing again but with you on the other side so be respectful. As a matter of fact for good measure go up a little and read it again. I'll wait....

Done?

Okay let’s move on.

12. HAVE FUN! That’s what we are here for so when the day is out make sure you had a good time!



Enjoy The Site!
Bobby

Good Advice!!! Espacially the part about not getting offended by others, we should all act like adults and understand that it is impossible to get along with everyone all of the time, but that does not mean we cannot all be friends

Your spot on Bobby thank you for posting this its along time coming and I'm glad that someone as well respected and as respectful as you posted this. Again, thank you.

Around here everyones opinion is valued and you dont always get along, I used to really not like RSWORDS because of a run in that i had with him the badlands but i soon realized that you grow up and get over it and move on and try to be friends with everyone. Thats what I'm here for and I love to have a good time and this site has done that for me. You opinion matters to all of us and I personally like to hear everyones voices no matter what it is even if i dont like it I will still listen and give you my two cents too. I dont hold grudges very well and I'm a goofy guy thats really easy to get along with so I'm gonna joke around and get a little wild sometimes so dont take me too seriously. Just come on here with a good attitude and have fun thats what its all about.

Also its ok to ask questions and there is no such thing as a stupid question. If you have a question about something post it or PM someone that might know and you'll get anwsers within a couple hours.

New members welcome to Diesel Bombers, kick your boots off and stay awhile, enjoy and have fun!!!!

Good post and that pretty much covers it, everybody has there opinions some people will like it and some wont. I let thing roll off my back pretty good and I dont hold things against anybody, you say what you want to and ill say what i want too and see where it goes.

Like everybody before me said welcome to DieselBombers, have fun, dont take things too seriously, ask questions, use the smileys to express your feelings and uh thats pretty much it....oh yeah and dont let the MAN get ya down
