Knob, the idea behind the title is that the rogue may be being held back by the guild being too advanced, such that they aren't equipped to provide for the needs of someone who is learning to raid (beyond speedily gearing the person, I would imagine). Personally, I would see that as "Not helping enough" over "Holding back" (and maybe I also missed the point), but if one assumes a standard rate of development, and identifies disparate factors between the standard and the substandard, then I guess I could see those factoring being said to be holding back the development of the individual. So then it just comes down to where you assign the standard.

Poor Knob...that's what a public school education does to you.

That and sometimes you learn better with people your own skill level, it's fine grouping with vets and experts every now and then, but you can't always learn unless you make mistakes that someone else can't cover up for or see others make.

I understood what you meant, Knob. The title makes sense in the context of a value judgment (i.e., self-betterment), rather than performance standards; in which case the player would be holding back his guild.

To explain to the thick ones that didn't get my point (Tumleren and Manic Soul), I was asking if the title was meant to be "Am I holding my Ulduar-clearing guild back?"But then again, I'm sure you were happy enough to post something that didnt' draw the ire of the rest of the community. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be able to contribute something meaningful to the world some day.

There must be other Brits on this site that find Knob's name hilarious, especially the manner in which people keep referring to him.
