    Though this was stolen from another forum, i thought it was a good idea (hy, look at battle of the pictures).
    Older, experienced people must adopt a noob. Adoptors must have a post count over 500. Adoptees must be lower than 500 (or 500). Sorry if 500 is a little high to get adopted, but i didn't want to leave a whole group out...

    Well, get adopting!

    I'm going to adopt SunPitcher. I know he may not be a noob, but his post count is less than 500.

    I don't believe in using post count to judge someones expertise. I haven't checked my post numbert-but I'm a total newbie. Some others who are very experienced simply may not post alot.

    I do like the general idea of support group though.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    I don't really either, i stole it from absforums but it seems interesting. I thought it would work well seeing as though i stole "Battle of the Pictures" from the same place. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Postcount is an awful indicator for skill.
    Besides, it encourages spamming to raise your postcount which plagues this forum already in my opinion. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    I check this forum every day but don't bother posting in most General Discussion topics. (I actually feel my brain turn all gooey while reading them)

    People have to indicate themselves if they want to be adopted or adopt someone.
    I think that setting up a good FAQ list might be more helpful though.

    don't mean to sound harsh, but a waste of time, in my opinion. adopt them for what? show them how to post on the board? how to upload pics? tips on how to grow CPs? you can get that on here already, without having to have someone adopt you. also, post count has absolutely no correlation with "experience". about the only thing on here you could use is the date they joined, and then you have to assume they knew little or nothing prior to that. i guess what i am trying to say: what is adopting a 'newbie' going to accomplish that isn't accomplished on the forum already.

    i agree with sarracenia..

    i've got more posts than him but he's much more experienced...
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
