For my second data analysis memo, I would like to present the forum called Newbie Saikyo Dojo . Follow the link and you'll see a list of threads posted by players who are beginners to the community and to the fighting game genre in general. Just by glancing at the thread titles alone you get a strong sense of new players appealing to experienced players for mentorship. I think this is one of the few places on the website where a new player can get away with a certain amount of naivete. Here new players can pose their callow inquiries without fear of (too much) harassment from the reactionary and elitist set of older players, all of whom have seen every conceivable permutation of each question type. One interesting thing to notice is the title of the forum, Newbie Saikyo Dojo, which combines the slightly derogatory connotations of the word "newbie" with the structured apprenticeship in martial arts that is explicit in the phrase "Saikyo Dojo."
