  1. A means of grading Redbrick members in order to allow the older ones to
  2. feel superior but in reality the connection between generations and
  3. superiority is a vague and uncertain one. Basically every Redbrick
  4. member belongs to a generation depending on how far removed they are
  5. from the First Generation.
  6. First Generation [Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink") are those who joined
  7. the year Redbrick was set up, between the April of that year and the end
  8. of term. This was the year 1996. Most such people have either left DCU
  9. or are in fourth year by now. The Second Generation is my Generation,
  10. the best one most say, with many of Redbrick\'s finest joining. The
  11. [Freshers](/Freshers "wikilink") who joined this year make up the Fourth
  12. Generation and next year\'s Freshers are the Fifth Generation, though
  13. they don\'t know it yet.
  14. Note: Generation has nothing to do with how long you\'ve been in DCU. It
  15. has to do with how long you\'ve been a Redbrick member. People of
  16. greater generations typically lord it over the lesser denziens of the
  17. Society. Such people are typically emotionally, and often sexually
  18. insecure. All Generations are, of course, less then the pre-First
  19. Generation cabal known only as [The Founders](/The_Founders "wikilink").

  22. As far as I can tell, the idea of [Brickie](/Brickie "wikilink")
  23. generations came from the brain of Thayl (as did the expression
  24. \"[Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink")\"). Basically, First Generation
  25. [Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink") are the ones who joined in Spring/Summer
  26. 1996, just after Redbrick was created. The Second Generation are the
  27. ones who joined from September 96 - Summer 97. Third Generation are from
  28. September 97 - Summer 98. And so on, hopefully until real
  29. [Brickie](/Brickie "wikilink") descendants are going home and announcing
  30. that they\'re 16th Generation Brickies and having their parents
  31. reminisce about how \"it was REAL back in our day\" and how \"we did
  32. totally command line stuff.. mouse pointers! What _do_ they teach you
  33. at school\" and \"Hmph - you call that a [chat
  34. system](/Chat "wikilink")/newsreader/mailreader/editor\... I remember
  35. when we had \[whatever it is you remember\]\".
  36. To put this in context:
  37. First Generation [Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink") (FGBs) include [the
  38. Founders](/the_Founders "wikilink") (obviously), Thayl, Autocrat,
  39. Odyssey, Silk.. Second Generation [Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink")
  40. include Pooka, Wishkah, Carrot, Cain, Spock, Plop.. Third Generation
  41. Brickies include Bobb, Sares, Afrodite, Grimnar, Singer\... Fourth
  42. Generation [Brickies](/Brickie "wikilink") include Dot, Moridin, Tibor,
  43. P, Kpodesta, Julie\...
  44. Know your generation. Put it on your CV. You never know who may be
  45. interviewing you some day\...
