  A rather nice set to promote friendliness towards new members, rather easy to figure but just so everyone knows its out there!

#4 Posted by Neverpraying (1465 posts) - - Show Bio

this quest set is meh

#5 Posted by PhantomAres (138 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes it is a bit, considering new members posting new topics is just so rare.

#6 Posted by IIayK (468 posts) - - Show Bio

  read PM

#7 Posted by PhantomAres (138 posts) - - Show Bio

Yay, I am the first to complete it :D

#8 Posted by jamesewelch (616 posts) - - Show Bio

Seems like this would just confuse new users having tons of people swarm them with follows, PMs, etc.

#9 Posted by jamesewelch (616 posts) - - Show Bio

2nd to finish it.

#10 Posted by PhantomAres (138 posts) - - Show Bio

Lol yeah I don't envy the new people and the crazy outburst of welcomes and the like, hopefully they will find it more welcoming than creepy XD

What qualifies someone as a "new" user?

I agree.

I agree with this as well.

@Korg:  new user - I don't know. Just go to the "Users -> Newest Users" link/tab, pick a letter at random and follow 10 of the people listed there. Worked for me. I think I choose "#" (numbers), and followed the first 10 people listed there, then unfollowed after getting completion.

Well I'm not positive, but I ASSUME it's basically one week of the current date, best to find people who joined up today or yesterday though to be safe.

#14 Posted by Neverpraying (1465 posts) - - Show Bio

Anyone wanna give me a list of newbies since the section of the site is not working >.> well 7 newbies to follow?

#15 Posted by jamesewelch (616 posts) - - Show Bio
@Neverpraying:  It works, but the "All" link doesn't work. Just click on any letter or # link.

  This sounds a like a little to much lackluster work not concerning comics.  I would really prefer another quest searching the database of characters on the website.

I'm not even shooting to complete this quest set. Seems like a complete waste of time, which encourages spam, and is something of a nuisance to new users, who will probably end up being mostly alternate accounts anyway.

@Korg:  Most people you just follow them and it sends them a message that you followed them and it counts.
 
ALSO this quest set is stupid as hell. :\

I understand how the mechanics work. My question is what qualifies a user as "new", since it is not specified at all in the quest set (as it should be). I know there is a "newest members" list, and I don't really feel like going though the motions of pretending to help them just to finish these quests. Seems incredibly superficial.

I'm not doing this one. It won't reach 1000 in a week anyway.

#26 Posted by Neverpraying (1465 posts) - - Show Bio

Still would like to get it done for completions sake. >.>

I don't know why they keep setting the benchmarks this high. We've never even come close to 1,000. Not to mention if 1,000 people did do this, it would be flooding new users walls and inboxes with spam.

They assume we have no lives. 
 
: P
 
I thought about the underlined part too, and in addition to that, the site may lag or run slower if multiple users are PMing and writing on the walls of the same new user when a thread they created reaches the home page or something.

This confused me...I'm not so much a new user, I just don't post on the boards often (ever).  Time for a change!

That is the biggest problem with this set, so many people just don't post, let alone create topics.
#34 Posted by Ender7884 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah I created a topic on the site and was surprised by the quest.

#35 Posted by PhantomAres (138 posts) - - Show Bio

I still haven't made ten topics myself, I refuse to spam the forums just to completed the quest. It's lucky there hasn't been worse spamming before now really >_>

Can someone give a link to a forum post from a new user.

#40 Posted by aztek_the_lost (28224 posts) - - Show Bio

well, it turns out there's a filter now to stop you from making too many accounts at once...so I won't be completing this quest anytime soon...sorry but I don't have any urge to come off as a creeper or spammer...but I do think this will chase people away considering the spam they'll be getting in their e-mail before they even know what's going on...plus if I send even 10 people helpful PM's and they take me seriously because I'm a mod, I'm screwed because I don't have time to hand out 10 "How to" guides in personal PM form without seeming impersonal and rude by giving links to other things in the site and otherwise ignoring them

I still do not know how 10 new people will follow me and I have not found one new user to make a forum topic. Has anyone found a forum topic from a new user

Just so people know, I'm on the "new user" list and dont' mind people spamming me with whatever to complete this quest, I don't scare too easy. :)

#45 Posted by eldestrisk (637 posts) - - Show Bio

I had been some time in Comicvine and some new users have more followers than me. This quest is crazy. xD I don't get it. Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow. =S

This sums up my feelings on this set pretty well.
