we were all newbs at one point, but one thing that started to run through my head was when does someone become "experienced" and I assume it differs for each person, so lets here it!
I suppose I felt I had graduated from newbie hood when I bought my first sub, but how did it work for you?
P.S. I almost put "when a player starts acting respectfully (stops begging etc.)" but for some of us who actually read the rules before joining, never created this problem ;P
