    Quote by Darren from the other SEED thread
    Noted all the feedback on the newbies feeling a bit left out, unfortunately being in a public place means that we don't have leeway to setup a sort of registration table for newbies to sort of make themselves known.

    We are not an un-friendly bunch, but sometimes, we tend to get caught up with discussions in groups, thus giving the impression of cliques.

    I have noticed this myself, and also am partly to blame when getting too busy with coordinating the MOs, so have not been able to intro to newbies.

    I guess there's no easy solution to this, other than newbies gathering enough nerve to be thickskin a bit and break thru the ice.

    But hopefully, we can come up with some more appealing ways for newbies to integrate themselves. And note to newbies, after attending two SEEDs, consider lao jiao thus dehuis cannot say he newbie any more
    Anyone have any ideas how to make SEEDs less intimidating for newbies?

    Yes, there are always ppl who can help you spend your money

    Seriously, if you are contemplating buying something from the shops, most of us here are already known faces, thus can intro you to the salesppl. And most of the time, we can help to get better prices, although truth be told, most of the time, the pricing is already pretty good.

    And to paraphrase the Oracle in Matrix Reloaded - "You know you want to buy it, you are here to seek the excuse to give your SO/wife/mother why you want to buy it."

    Ok, all it takes is one person to be known at the SEED so that the newbies can look for and sit down to form a circle first, after they feel more comfortable they can bring gears and talk would that be a good idea?

    Like we appoint for example, Larry, he'll wear the Ronald Macdonald clothes and sit there, so we announce to CS if newbies join look for Uncle Ronald, erm wait... Uncle Larry, and let him settle the newbies down.

    I'm sure newbies want to meet certain CS people as well to ask about cameras and stuffs, maybe the designation person can even give a simple introduction on those heavy artillery terms like DOF, aperture etc. After feeling better knowing that CS people are nice, we can introduce them their peer users of the cameras and such, and voila! We've another circle

    Then maybe some oldbies can join that table and chat away.

    And I'll bring a 8R cat pix. Newcomers can look for the teddy and the kat pix. Maybe we may get Lavenderlilz and Poledra as well? And of course Larry....

    hahaha just kidding.

    ok ok looks like i've been arrowed. i will set aside a special table for those shy or paiseh to come (first round of kopi on me, except espn - he should buy me kopi instead for all the 'disturbing' he's given me). dehuis, pls, i would love for you to help out. appreciate your help there...

    i will be wearing workclothes (shirt and pants) or a CS polo tee alao. shouldn't be hard to spot, just look for the big spec-kie or the uniformed schoolgirl asking me for drinks again.
