This is just something I noticed popping up again recently. It's happened before so it's nothing new. I just wanted to say one quick thing about all this adoption stuff. Call me a lecturer if you like but I just don't think some people realize this.
Everyone's back to the bam I want a noob, I need more noobs, be my noob thing. It's like having a noob is becoming a status thing.
The adopt a noob program was started to get people who don't know what to do help. It's a helping thing not a status thing.
Also I've talked to quite a few people who are a little put off because so many people jump to say I want to adopt you, before they even say hi.
Basically what I wanted to get through with this is.....adoption is for help, not status. If you get a noob please make sure you can help them and be a good adopter, not just adopt them to add them in your sig. And lastly, maybe we should work on saying hi first, and making new people feel welcome, before we jump on the I want to adopt you bandwagon. Unless of course they full out announce....I'm new someone adopt me!
