    I have made a suggestion regarding the change of 'Newbie' to 'Newcomer', it seems to be a nicer welcome to the board. Whats your vote?

    Nah, I disagree. "newcomer" sounds like there here to take over. Plus, I had to suffer it

    btw, cornerpocket, I've noticed how much work your doing to this board. Nice one

    necomer definitely...this forums is mainly on K-lite...just cus they're new to K-lite forums doesnt mean they're a newbie to the program. They person may have been with Kazaa since the day it came out, and since the napster days so why should they be called newbies?

    I like the idea of Newcomer as opposed to Newbie. To me, Newbie just sounds so insulting. Just because someone is new to the board, doesn't mean they don't have anything to offer, although I will admit I was such a n00b way back when. :">

    Newcomer is weird. Newbie is cool and a more familiar name, in my opinion. B)
    If newbies are also called n00bs then should newcomers be called n00ks as in ?

    I think your'e right Datamore. Newbie is original and (in a strange sort of way) cute which makes me help the poor things. I think the others should be changed, sr.member is old fashioned. (dont lower my stating though )

    I agree , the term 'Newbie' is somewhat deragatory because it sounds like the person just got a new computer and doesn't have a clue how to use it (which may or may not be the case). However, I also agree with TRshady - 'Newcomer' sounds kind of ominous (I think it's from the miniseries 'V&#39. Some other possibilites to consider:

    Apprentice
    Freshman
    Neophyte
    Rookie
    Tenderfoot

    I voted yes. It sound much more friendly and welcoming.

    It takes away the insult factor.
