Well, this is nerve-raking(Is that the right words I want to use?)
This is my first time creating a topic in the GCD.
Been lurking for a few days, so I think I got the feel for it down though.
haha.

Um, anyways.
How come, when a lurker or a newbie posts,
they have this "Don't eat me. It's my first topic"?
It's kinda weird, yet I did it as well.
oops. sweatdrop

How is it that the GCD has come to this creature,
that'll eat you up if your topic will fail?
Or is it with all of gaia?

The fear of the GCD
newbies posting for the first time

i think its gaia in general.
my connotation is the sense of superiority
but your topic is made of win!

Cause the GCD has a reputation of eating people for not having the right thread in the Forum. And there are people who like to point out that a thread is a repeat, which would probably make you feel redundant for repeating it. Its just cause to be a little frightened.

But really, as long as they dont make a thread about something completely away from the topic of Gaia or post news over 4 months ago, nothing to really worry about.

@Jamie Bear Rawr: why, thank you!
wait, sense of superiority?
Is it because of "Prommies"?
o.O!

@`Osiris: Ohh, I see.

OMG 4laugh *hugs* I love love LOVE it when lurkers post! You, my lady, are my hero whee

Anywho, I totally notice that with newbies and lurkers posting in the GCD (and they know it belongs in the GCD). I guess the GCD just has higher standards for its participants, since our discussion threads do not involve simple minded topics (most of the time mad d)

I used to be afraid of the GCD. The only way out? You just have to keep posting and get over it. If someone criticizes you, ignore it, or take it to heart, but either way you learn from it to get tougher skin and create better, more thought provoking and interesting threads!

Here's hoping to seeing more of your topics! *raises glass*
[++++]
    I think its certain guilds that make you feel that way.
    Like i'm always just posting in the GCD. Never making threads.
    I'm afraid of failing. D=
    But like in the CB I have no fear of posting in there.
    You can make a thread about donuts and no one attacks you for it!
User Image Me? I'm dishonest, and a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It's the honest ones you want to watch out for,.


Hello x3

My tip: Don't be a n00b :3
The GCD doesn't like that.
Go to the chatterbox for spam x3

Oh, and yeah.
I wanna talk :]

Some people are scary here. eek
Sometimes I don't post because I don't want to deal with all the ferocity.
So I can see what some people mean when they say, "Eep."
I just made my first topic here too just a few minutes ago. I don't find the GCD very threatening though...

Yeah, a lot of GCDers will eat you alive if your topic is non-conforming, non-repetitive, relating to old news, and if you haven't posted here before and have no good name established.

Sometimes they eat you alive if your topic/you are like that.

Weird cliques and their rules, eh?

(I'm nice though. =D)
Because if it's in the wrong place, you get nothing but crap. An example I saw earlier:

Topic Starter - "Rate the avatar above you!! yay this is fun!!"
Next Poster - "0/10"

And her avi really wasn't that bad, just someone being a craphead.

@Pompetti: Eep!

I didn't make my first thread in the GCD until 8 months after I started posting here sweatdrop True story~

Then when I mentioned in that thread that it was my first, everyone called me a liar xDDDD (good-naturedly I think ^^;; )

I still hardly ever make threads :3
