The previous Adopt-a-Newbie got buried and died! Which isn't good.
So here's a shiny new thread.

VDex can be kind of overwhelming at first! So many things to spend money on, so little time. So, this is basically for older players to help out new members, whether it be advice on moneymaking or a warning to stay away from Lyrit.

Oh! Also, if English isn't your first language and you need a little help, there are a bunch of members who have offered to assist with translating stuff. Just remember that forum posts have to be in English!

So just fill out a form! If you're a newbie, feel free to contact any of the older members via PM (Image← that little button!). If you're too shy/nervous/overwhelmed, that's fine too! Just say so on the form and a veteran can PM you. Once someone's contacted you, though, make sure to edit your post to mention it! Otherwise you could be barraged in PMs!
Also, if you want a specific member (ladies!), don't be shy!

For Newbies: (just copy and paste it into your post)
Code:
[b]Username:[/b]
[b]How long have you been here?[/b]
[b]COOLEST THING ABOUT YOU:[/b]
[b]Contact or be Contacted? [/b][guys this isn't a yes or no question]


For Old People:

Code:
[b]Username:[/b]
[b]How long have you been here?[/b]
[b]COOLEST THING ABOUT YOU:[/b]
[b]Any fond memories of being a young'un?[/b]
[b]Adopted members! (if any): [/b]

(don't be greedy, guys. if you've already got a mentee, let someone else offer their services! of course, if it's been a couple days and someone hasn't been adopted, go ahead)

Also, be sure to check out the excellent guides subforum! There are a ton of really helpful user-made guides!
Oh, and there's always the guidebook and newbie guide. but you already knew that.


Buttons!
want a sweet button for your sig? yes, yes you do. and we have them!
thanks to isamunee for making this!
