Whether it be noobs or vets. The whole point of this is to help people out regardless of how dumb a question they ask. I have been making a serious effort myself to exercise more tact and I suggest we all do the same in our post. I post on AW frequently and now on here, but the issues once on AW seem to have jumped from AW to AZ. For 2007 lets try and be cordial and just keep focused on not being as big of an A$$hat to people as possible regardless of the content of their post. Just my .02

this is true. sure it might get annoying if someones asks the same question that was asked last week. Really what the hell diference does it make? If you don't want to type in an answer or comment, you don't have to.

I've been trying to answer everyone as best as I can as well, I'll say "search next time, but.....insert solution here....."

yeah but some of the things that people ask on here are asked every week and all these people need to do is search. the problem is that when people like me search we find answers all over the place, some right, some wrong.

Agreed, even the guys that have been here a month LOVE to throw out the "Search" to someone that signed up a day ago. Let it slide and help out if you can, if not maybe suggest the search in a better manner.

But just so I can bash somthing........AUDIWORLD SUCKS!!! I cant make 400hp on a gt2871r!? Go F yourself! lol ok I'm done.

this is true, but it doesn't hurt anyone to answer either. Like if a thread is titled, "How do I take a screw out with a screwdriver?" it's obviously going to be a fairly n00bish question so why open it if you don't want to answer haha. Just say "left to take out right to put in", it's shorter than typing, "you dumb ass, search next time.....blah blah blah............ someone lock this thread before I kill myself".

the purpose of a forum is do discuss and help one another out.... and share pornography of couse.

I think that audiworld, in addition to AZ is a great resource, just much less n00b friendly. I also do agree that people take things too seriously on both forums. I don't understand people who are aggitated when they click on a frequently asked question that consumes 20 seconds of their time to read, and an additional 50 seconds to think of something "clever" to say. Dont people come here to kill time anyways?

MultiAudis
01-11-2007, 08:46 AM
agreed upon on all fronts. I remember why I joined AZ, and it wasn't read bashing all day, but to have an invaluable resource, which it has proved to be. As well I think a sticky is the best way to reduce the number of threads that cause the issue in the first place. Anyone who has the time to bash noob threads also has the time to contribute to a useful FAQ, so lets redirect our time and make it happen!

SoFresh
01-11-2007, 08:46 AM
audiworld's setup is stupid if you ask me... not very user friendly... but thats just me, enough about AW, we're talking about AZ getting a noob section and STICKYS....

besides if you wanted to get too serious on here... this thread should be moved to general section.... not the B5...

I have to say a lot of new people have joined of late and the tone of threads have slipped for the worst I would say.

Yes people should search first but a gentle nudge to advise them would not hurt instead of the full on in your face SEARCH response with a load of sarcasm is not going to do this forum well or keep people on here.

I did most of my learning on here with aid from a few other forums I go on and this is my favourite forum.

So like others have stated lets try and keep the threads less aggressive and teach the new comers rather than bully the ways of this forum.

imo, AZ is the place to be if you have BT or engine build questions, hands down.

AW is more knowledgable at everything else. (keep in mind that this is my own opinion and i know many of you will disagree)

As of the past year, AW has gone downhill big time... AZ has kinda always had the n00b ask what BOV to get about every week, very annoying.

AZ needs to make a FAQ sticky like you guys have been mentioning, but it would be very hypocritical if you guys stole the FAQ from AW. You should actually just have a sticky with the link to the AW FAQ, cause it has nearly everything other than BT and engine building info.

Lets keep the B5's alive around the forums : )

If one was set-up may be we could add a link to a post on here that would allow them to read the post and revive it if need be.

We could have subject titles with links underneath which moderators can control with an email address to add new links or new subjects...

yeah, faq would be tight. A compendium of chronic boost leak locations would be handy.
I end up searching a bit everywhere before I post anywhere. AZ is still the most tolerant forum IMHO.

It's funny because I don't consider myself a n00b being on my 4th Audi and 5th VWAG product, but this is my first turbo and I waited 4 years to start seriously modding it so suddenly I have a lot of n00bish questions.

So apologies in advance to all the 15 year olds out there who already built a full K04 and then totaled it and then parted it out and are sooo over it already. I mean because B5's is passe' alreadys yo. [rolleyes]

HID
suspension

bellofello
01-11-2007, 12:23 PM
the only thing about answering FAQ's on those topics is getting a straight answer that pleases all. For example with the BOV/DV topic, many will say DV DV DV, BOV's are the anti-christ. But you can run a BOV with recirc and it will be the exact same as a DV would. There are going to be arguments on pretty much any topic you try to answer.

2nd that.

This is why i made the hop over from AW to AZ....AW besides the format...they were second when it came to BT's, engine builds, experimental kits and such.

AW guys were good at existing stuff...but going beyond that is a different story.

but n00bs need to learn their place....if people think this forum is bad...try out a supra forum....you get banned easily if you can even register on the main ones. any forum etiquette is search first and ask 2nd. thats the way i did it when i started on all...and i didn't even post for a while...i waited. is300.net is notorious for getting jumped on by a billion people and then they also have + rep and - rep they can give you...which can get you ejected/banned should you get enough negative rep. so when i see people complain about AZ...i laugh cuz there are plenty of other forums that are much worse. but when you only see this...well...i guess you got nothing to go by. i think some of the bmw forums can be pretty bad.

thats my take on it anyways.

Hey guys. I'm glad to see there is some effort here to keep AZ from becoming AW. I've always hated noob bashing. If someone posts up something stupid with a post count of 1 or 2, people should be helpful. If it happens at post counts of more than 100, I say give them the beatdown! [:D]

Anyway, the reason for my post is that I always wished AZ had a nice FAQ similar to the AW B5 FAQ. We now have a sticky in the B7 forum that is great. You B5 guys need to do the same.

Here is a sample of ours in case you haven't seen it: B7 A4 FAQ (http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=105668)

I've been on tons of forums and have m8's with all kinds of makes and models, but essentially we are all in this for one reason and if anyone honestly think because it's worse elsewhere and that people here should just sit there, take it and deal with it I think that right there lies the problem. Just because it's worse elsewhere, people flame, get reps etc... doesn't mean we should follow suit. Change happens one step at a time and I think making an effort on all accounts to improve forum conduct would be for the better. Do people think flaming other people makes that person feel good and if you flame and feel good then there is something frankly fecked up with that person. Maybe it all has to do with how America as a whole is filled with disrespectful, feeling of entitlement, no concern for others, and rude arrogant attitudes. If that is the case then make an effort to be different and be helpful and show some respect since that is what this all comes down to. Do unto others as you would like done to you.

I personally am going to stop any and all negative comments myself and try and help as much as possible regardless of how redundant or rhetorical the question etc...

the same goes in real life, i guarantee you your career is going nowhere if you constantly bother your boss with questions without putting a little effort into some background research FIRST.

anyway, back in the day AW had a tight knit group of people and the flaming was all in good fun. nobody took it personally and nobody meant it personally.

then as the A4 aged and became cheaper, younger people started owning the car, and ALL B5 A4 forums became popularity contests. end of story.

personally i dont flame anymore, because you realize there will always be stupid people with stupid questions, and you cant stop the barbarian horde of internet idiots, no matter how much you flame them.

Members in both the B6 and B7 A4 Forums took it upon themselves to create FAQs. While we do have our own "official" ones in the works, it would benefit this forum tremendously if you guys started your own. If it's good enough it'll get Stickied, just as in the other A4 Forums.

BTW this is a great thread. It's nice to see the comraderie and love for the AZ Community is still alive and well over in the B5 A4 Forum. I do apologize for not posting in here nearly as much anymore since getting my B7 and being so incredibly busy with behind-the-scenes AZ stuff.

Well lets just say the opinions are a little different. That thread has some very good information, lets say we start a new one and keep it away from discussion and just have it complete submission of technical information. The more that gets amassed the better it will be, and we will work to make it all nice and coherent.

Also, the Easter Egg sticky for some reason was lost during the migration, it was not taken down for any reason. Trying to figure that out, but we may just want to start a new one.

Hmmmm... I really like that, well put.

IMO, it is a bummer for some of you guys that dont give AW a true chance. Probably because your first post there was "what kind of BOV should i get?" and you got flammed to hell, therefore you hate it ("not exactly that reason, but just an example). Well, some of the AW guys are just straight ruthless and looking to score some fake points from older AW guys. Like modified said, a popularity contest.... Some are also just competley sick of the repeated questions. An AW member was actually so sick of people bashing the APR S3 kit when it came out, he took action and created his own forum for APR S3 guys only. He pays for the site out of his own pocket.... imo, you AW haters should put that into consideration. For you guys that just hate the formatting on AW, so be it, its different than just about every other forum out there and thats just the way it is. Not a big deal, but no it is not fair to bash AW members about it.

But seriously, if you run into a problem and can explain the problem and support with some logging from a VAG, most of the AW can respond with a very respectable answer real quick. There are just some real fucking smart guys on AW. period. Handfull of audi/vw techs as well.

I just thought it was right to try and show some respect for AW : )

Now go ahead and bash me, but also keep in mind that i did NOT bash AZ about their knowledge or particular members. : )

Hmmmm... I really like that, well put.

IMO, it is a bummer for some of you guys that dont give AW a true chance. Probably because your first post there was "what kind of BOV should i get?" and you got flammed to hell, therefore you hate it ("not exactly that reason, but just an example). Well, some of the AW guys are just straight ruthless and looking to score some fake points from older AW guys. Like modified said, a popularity contest.... Some are also just competley sick of the repeated questions. An AW member was actually so sick of people bashing the APR S3 kit when it came out, he took action and created his own forum for APR S3 guys only. He pays for the site out of his own pocket.... imo, you AW haters should put that into consideration. For you guys that just hate the formatting on AW, so be it, its different than just about every other forum out there and thats just the way it is. Not a big deal, but no it is not fair to bash AW members about it.

But seriously, if you run into a problem and can explain the problem and support with some logging from a VAG, most of the AW can respond with a very respectable answer real quick. There are just some real fucking smart guys on AW. period. Handfull of audi/vw techs as well.

I just thought it was right to try and show some respect for AW : )

Now go ahead and bash me, but also keep in mind that i did NOT bash AZ about their knowledge or particular members. : )

Well said BJC and Modified! I think formatting issues are something that people can either adjust and deal with or they can just avoid it altogether. I posted on AW long before I posted on AZ and as I started getting closer to going BT I came over here and soon will be taking your Gt28rs BJC and have found invaluable information on both AZ and AW. The premise of both forums is the same, it's to be a helpful resource and a place to blow some time. The forums like OT on AW are a place to pretty much say and most just about anything and are where the cut-throat post should be left. I think it's high time we just all make an effort to get along. Frankly bashing noobs is fun for some and for others maybe we outgrow it or have a different look at life as a whole in general. I am starting to look at noob bashing just as I saw kids pick on someone is 3rd grade. It's immature, not unnecessary and pretty much just impeads upon positive growth and generally just creates ever growing hostility. However some post are just flat out stupid and simply one person stating please search and then everyone else backing off will achieve a greater end result. The problem doesn't go away because people have yet to make an effort to help alleviate the overall issue itself.

Well lets just say the opinions are a little different. That thread has some very good information, lets say we start a new one and keep it away from discussion and just have it complete submission of technical information. The more that gets amassed the better it will be, and we will work to make it all nice and coherent.

Also, the Easter Egg sticky for some reason was lost during the migration, it was not taken down for any reason. Trying to figure that out, but we may just want to start a new one.

I'm all for this, this is my home forum. B5[a4]

Can the mod go in and delete the useless posts? That's pretty much what BSK does on the AW B5 FAQ.

Eh, the engineer in me is thinking that a duplicate B5 FAQ here on AZ is redundant and is a waste of time...not because of a AZ vs AW thing, but because the ideal solution would be one storehouse for all information...

ripple, would it be like... anyone can post a peice of technical information. If it's relevant, you or a mod would put it into the first post and delete the one from the user? I think something of that sort would work best to keep it junk free.

We are going to discuss it, but we will work in one way or another to keep it junk free
