Let's not forget the ultimate noobie post.
Ducati.MS now has finally created an emoji (or whatever they are called these days) for its most popular post. 🍉🍉🍉🍉

Has anyone noticed the large number of questions regarding a specific model that are being posted in the general Ducati Motorcycle Chat forum instead of the appropriate model forums? I don't know if this is being done mostly by noobs or by long term members who just hit on the first forum they see. I would think that a question about a Monster's ECU would be more likely be seen and answered if it were posted in the Monster forum than in the Ducati Chat forum.

I also wonder if it is a side effect of people accessing the internet through small screen handheld devices instead of large screen laptop or desktop computers. I imagine it is harder to scroll through the home page to find an appropriate forum using a small screen device than a large screen computer.

I don’t know Bill. I use Tapatalk on my phone about 99.9% of the time because I find it easier to use. Every 0.1% of the time that try using the new web browser version I get heart burn, indigestion, and the shits. :)

I do have a bit of a problem with a first time contributor posting up a 'desperate' plea for help without making any attempt to introduce themselves or show any respect or manners. Typically the good people of this forum respond with experienced, researched and considered advice only to not receive any form of thank you or even acknowledgement for their efforts.
Given that the OP is usually a younger person, it is reasonable to assume that they are biologically attached to their media communications device of choice and that they are therefore aware they have received the help they have so urgently begged for.
When I encounter an example of this I consider it my civic duty to help fill in the gap they have suffered in their education and point out, in a reasonably gentle way, what an ungrateful, inconsiderate little git they are. I do not charge for this service to them, I'm generous that way 🙂.

If we are bashing noobs, what about the ones with 0 posts that go straight to sending you PM's asking for help?

I remember back in the day when we were all rogue.
El Jefe made me look like nice guy.
Scott must have lost his mind in a momentary lapse of reason to even make me a mod.
Chuckracer used to be a lovely fellow.

LOLOLOLOL

Of course, Scott and I were single and in a competition to see who could get the most women naked.
Buckelew was always ranting on CF rims and flaking rockers and the blow flowed freely.

Now noobs want to sell me Viagra.
HA!
Raingirl would leave me in a heartbeat.

The olden days were pretty wild. Don't forget Miki Moto and the Ladies' Forum.
I can't remember the names of all the members who used to stir things up. I heard via the grapevine that there were a lot of interesting back stories that never made it on to these pages.

I know there were Mikimoto photos involved.
Names will be hidden to protect the guilty.
I think the evidence is still on an old hard drive I have.

Not that I ever stirred the pot of banned people.

I remember the days when I finally banned the girls on ducatis thread and was accused of being "Puritanical"
Ah yes, me, the Puritanical one....LOL
