Newbies guide to DYOM


Shiva.

Recommended Posts

Introduction

You may wondering, what this guide is about. Well, this guide is only for the newcomers who face a lot of problems in DYOM. Sometimes, they earn senior designers disrespect and get banned too young. So, I've to decided to help you. Yes, this guide may look similar to Chimpso's Becoming a successfull designer. But, this is completely different.I'm writing this guide from my own personal experience.

1. General problems, newbies face

Lack of better english

Even I suffered from this, when I began my DYOM carrer. This is the most common proble, some newbies face. Sometimes, old DYOM designers get easily annoyed by the use of poor english by the newbies. Alifjenius, the epic mission designer hate me at first due to this reason. He advised me to learn better english. I obeyed him, and today, he likes me. So, newbies should learn better englsih before they create a mission pack , topic, whatever.

NOTE: Some newbies think , they are good in english and advise the other DYOM Designers, to fix thier english. This makes them to gain disrespect from others.

Quoting long posts, Double posts , etc

This is one of the important thing, a newbie should keep in their mind. Some newbies unknowingly quote long posts and gain nothing but disrespect. So, they should never quote other's post, Double post is not so annoying but some old users get annoyed. So, better stay on safer side. Dont double post.

Giving Feedbacks

Some newbies gain disrespect by giving feedbacks. It doesn't mean that, you should never give feedbacks. But, it depends upon the type of feedbacks you give. Try to give Honest, true , constructive feedbacks. Honesty , true feedbacks doesn't mean that, you should give feedbacks such as boring, pain on my ass , etc. But, give feebacks which doesn't hurt anyone. If you feel that someone copied idea from a movie or any TV show , don't go and post on their topic, " you've copied, copycat." . This makes the others feel that the designer is a copycat and he will also gain disrespect and you'll also gain disrespect .

" I'm a wise asshole"

Some newbies think themselves as well experienced and act wisely. A newbie should never do that . Remeber, you're always a new comer and there are still thing you should learn. Many experinced users such as leoncj, Nitesh, Alifjenius, Notna. Satourn Fan ,etc avoided the above thing

and now look where they are. They are at the top and they have a countless number of fans.

Adding other people to disrespect list with no reasons

Some Newbies add people such as TonyCj, ILovegta and the other spammed ones without even knowing who they are. Remember, this makes them to develop a grudge on you and they can come back by creating a new account and they will seek revenge on you. So stay in the safer side.

A Funny thing some Newbies do

This act is really fun. Some Newbies [Dumping grounds] upload a mission to the site. Everyday, they'll come and check their mission pack and its download metre. Seeing that the download metre is too low, they themselves begin to download their missions to attract people to download it. Really funny, I know a few guys who do this but I don't like to mention them.

Goimg Off-topic

Some newbies unknowingly go offtopic . Offtopicing means discussing about something which is not related to that particular mission pack or mod . If a moderator sees it, they'll issue a warning to that particular newcomer . But some newbies don't know the meaning of offtopic and they'll continue to offtopic and get banned.

Name

Your name should be short and good , if you wanna become famous. So, before creating an account , keep in mind that your name should contain no numbers because some old designers may feel it difficult to use your name . Don't create names like this Billy896300,Handsome84646,etc . Sometimes, you may even forget your name. Let your name be short as possible. For instance, take the names of some great designer such as leoncj,notna, alifjenius, mati,etc. Just look at this names . They are short , contains no numbers and decent. So, your name has the capability to create a huge impact.

Requesting help topics

If you're new to DYOM, then you will have some doubts. Don't go and post it on the support forums. Cause, some people may feel it annoying . Instead, there are many topics , where you can post your problems.

Here's a few words from Chimpso to the new comers

 

There's only one thing you need to be a good "Newbie". Maturity. I was 13 when i joined this forum and one of the first topics I made was The SAPD Chronicles, which in no way looked "Noobish" at that point (IMO biggrin.gif). Take other great designers such as Mattata for example. If you make a good impression, people will like you.

This guide is under construction. If you have any feedbacks, feel free to post it.

You should learn to show respect as well as gain others respect. Gaining respect from people such as Satourn Fan , alifjenius, Guib , secronom president, etc is not so easy.

At last, my name is stated somewhere! cool.gificon14.gif

 

This guide can stay!

I want to add one thing here.

 

Very usually, when a new designer joins the community, they always talk like "Hey mah' fans, I ma here ya' can play mah' missooons babee'!". They act like they are already a big deal. You have to earn your respect. And I still know some people here, who act like they are the best designer ever been.

Nice guide. But many grammar and spelling mistakes. Or well, good job biggrin.gificon14.gif

I used a phone to write this guide. I wrote this in no time. So, some spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes. I'd came fully prepared but forgot everything.

You forgot to add the main thing that even new desginers who are aware of the above and are pleasing and have amazing missions have -

Its called REBELION- my favourite mood, my favourite character

you should work on that too, so that newbies stay away from it!

One more thing.

Before I thrash everything in this forum, i must say- Respect and Disrespet is all sh*t! Please edit the post and remove my name. I hate giving respect and Disrespect. Everyone is equal to me.

 

AND ALSO, DON'T EVER PUT SOMEONE AS IMMATURE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT! If i respect you, don't think yourself great. Same in SF's list, if he respects, don't feel great because he respects for you behavior. Respect, Disrespect is all sh*t. Who does good, I respect him. It is always not necessary that I can respect anyone.

 

If You want, I will love to put you in my disrespect list. mad.gif

 

Everybody is same but if they act like TonyCJ then I might say everybody has right to disrespect.

 

Ask SF himself, he is more smarter than you. Why did he put you in Respect list, have you every wonder?

 

Flattering won't work here and I know who flatters here to gain respect.

 

Sorry for any harsh talks but it's really, you know, angry.gif.

 

Nothing much, I guess.

My point is all about respect. I used your because you're my friend. If you want, I can remove it. No, I gonna remove it. Don't pull SF in this. I'm not impressing anyone by opening this type of topic. I only wanted to help my poor new friends. This is only for newbies. Sorry, I wont mention your name ever again. I'll remove it shortly . Don't wory. And why you keep saying sorry for the harsh talk. You know, it is harsh. Damn, I still can't understand you. You know what, I'm elder than you by 2 years. I added you to my respct list, cause you posted good replies lately on whatever topic I make. I dunno what's wrong whith you.

That's okay. But, nowadays something is f*ckin wrong with you.

whoa, whoa.... STOP THIS,

we're all buddies, hamari dosthi nai thutegi, etc, etc

stop this debate about respect, and john12, no offense but i side with Shiva,

you're different now,

we all liked you a lot.

We still do, know what? we're elder than you, we aren't bossing but look at you, you're over-reacting, you're talking harshly and then saying sorry, we're your friends its Ok for us

but in the outside world..............

according to me by looking at your nowadays attitude- you're ego-isitic

anyway if he posted about respect whats your problem?

Okay, agree with john here.

 

Why are you's (shiva and abishai) saying that I'm easy to earn respect from. I don't give out respect like that. You have to earn it from me. What is the different between earning respect from me and say someone like SF or Serconom? Nothing!

Just what K6 said. From me it's also very hard to earn respect. Sometimes it looks like that someone - not pointing out anyone - just puts every name in the list. I take my time and see who really earns it.
