Unless the new guys actually approach us and ask for help, we have no idea that they are looking for help, or even know who they are. However, when someone put them self out there, we are always welcoming and helpful. Most guys I know take it as a compliment to be asked for pointers.
This is very true. It makes me feel really good when someone asks me for pointers. Don't be afraid to ask, you shouldn't expect a pro to come up and just start pointing out the flaws in your game.
