Here's a question I've been pondering for a day or so - at what stage are you no longer noob? Is it a set date post-rezzing or does it depend entirely on an individual's time and experience? Is noob-ness relative, with you being a noob around one group of people, but non-noob around another? Is noobness in the eye of the beholder?
Hardly important issues really. Just a label that doesn't really exist. I guess the reason for all this navel-gazing and philoSLophy is because I've been feeling a bit more settled in my SL life recently. A bit more non-noobie.
As I expressed earlier a big sign of settled-ness for me is getting IMs when I arrive inworld without me IMing first. People being pleased to see you and wanting to say hi. I guess of my current massive friend list (comprising all of ten people! - hehe) there are three who would do this. It's a start, eh? Perhaps unsurprisingly all three are either in or close to my timezone. I'm realising that being in most people's 'tomorrow' is a bigger deal than I'd first thought.
So yeah.... noobness. The reason for this post. To recap, /me is feeling less noobilicious. Or at least, I was. Last night I was given guided mystery tour of some of the less salubrious parts of SL. (Thank you. You know who you are!)There are some pretty 'differently-orientated' places out there. Parts of the tour, most of it in fact, were definitely an eye-opener. The whole trip reminded me that am a noob after all.
Perhaps in RL as well as SL.
