Website and Forum / How long am I new for?

Hello chaps,

Can you tell me, how many posts does it take before I become 'not-new'? and will I then have access to all forums(which I don't at the moment)?

Strange, mine is set to update automatically when connected to wi-fi which it did a day or so ago and I've had no problems at all of any kind. I'm on a really piddly little budget Android too(Samsung Galaxy mini). They practically give 'em away with cornflakes nowadays. Perhaps the problem is limited to you rich people with your snazzy iphones??  :P

There's no way I'm ever going to be able to afford an ipad so it'll be Android for me. Have put my order in with Santa. From what I can gather from some other forums the Archos is pretty good for comics and some have even said their Kindle Fire does the job ok. As someone who used to attempt to read comics on my Sony PRS505(black & white, small-ish screen, very old ebook reader) and got along ok for a while like that before realising it wasn't the done thing to do, I think pretty much any colour tablet would seem like a dream to me.

p.s. I quite often use the comixology app on my android phone(3.1 inch screen) to read comics too.

I think if I were to compare this episode to some of my favourite old who(Tom Baker) it wouldn't compare well at all, so I'm not going to do that. I'll just say that judging it on it's own it was an enjoyable little piece of fluff that held no great surprises and was much as I expected it would be when I first saw the trailer. I liked the monster as far as it went and quite liked the western setting too. I think I'd like to see some form of over-arching storyline though. These individual episodes feel a little unloved to me.

And as I said, it simply wouldn't compare to good old Tom. But then, no-one could... of course.

Hi, best username ever. Got such nice thoughts in my head now :)

I don't know if it's because of the mocie but it's great to see such an influx of new blood to the board lately!

Just coincidence with me. I've been loitering all year. Thought I'd finally enter the arena. Although now you mention it, maybe the high profile of 2000ad due to the movie gave me an extra nudge. You know, I'm not even sure myself!

Damn it. Think newbies must be banned from the spoiler/prog forum. Prog 1800 was my first prog for a long long time too. Was going to share. Oh well...

you could use barney for the time being


Just had a quick look there. That's an amazing site. The 'covers' section alone is going to give me hours of joy. Thanks for that.

Not sure it's any more rubbish now than then. I just picked up my first prog in decades(prog 1800) and it seems to be a pretty good mix. Some stories are better than others of course, but then everyone's going to like different stuff. A good example is the way everyone seems to be raving about Brass Sun which for me was the one I least enjoyed in the entire issue. The same can be said of old progs Vs new. When I look at progs from years and years ago there are still stories I like and stories that were very 'meh...'. But on the whole, I think the prog has held up very well with regard to quality of stories and artwork. Oh, and the colouring surely has improved simply by dint of technology having improved? I'm thinking of the amazing colouring in ABC Warriors. Seriously, just amazing.

So, what's the story with this wiki then guys? The little message seems to have been there forever promising the launch of the Beta this week. Is the Beta over yet? When's it going live? Or has it simply been abandoned and the little message forgotten about?

I'm 42 but feel about 16. Think that's normal. Nice to see so many of us oldies still read the prog then.

Hi all, I wasn't even a religious 2000ad reader back then but I did pick it up every now and again. Have been lurking around the site for about six months now so thought it was about time to enter the arena, so to speak. Just picked up my first issue in decades(prog 1800) since it was marked as a good jumping-on point. I'm about to head over to the prog review thread and tell you what I thought of it.

Glad to be here  :)
