The forum newbie's first stop - introduce yourself


Hi! If you've just got here, have a look around to see what the forum is like and which areas you might be most interested in chatting in.

We're friendly, and remember, anyone who seems like they've been here a long time has been in the same position as you - they found this place, had a look around, then made that exciting / terrifying first post.

Our suggestion is that after getting a quick feel for the place you just jump right in. People will always be pleased to hear from you.

If you're unsure how to start, you can leave a post here to introduce yourself. Within moments you will be taken by the hand and whisked away to a wonderland of unnecessary randomness and support. Consider it the most gentle of initiations!

Welcome to the board!

RE: INTRODUCTIONS - leave a post to introduce yourself


I've already left some posts, but hello anyway, I'm Rachael, also known as Chull or Rach or Alka. (Or whatever else you want to call me, I don't really care).


I think this site and forum is really cooooool.

We like Alka. It sounds like Alkaloid not a shortening of Rachel but is muy cool!

A shortening of 'alkaloid'? No offence meant Alka - where did you pick up this nickname?

Compared to other forums I've used, this is perhaps the most newbie-friendly I've come across.

Thank you all for being so nice to me.

Aw, Thinker.

You've been here ages, and it's a pleasure to have you here, and you can probably start being rude to us now.

Oh, WAIT. You called me OLD. There should be some sort of forum punishment for that

It's like "Ol Mags!" or "Little Mags!"

It's just a term of endearment.

Now, "Shitty Mags" would be a little harder to justify... unless of course referring to "People" and "Us" and ... "Cosmopolitan."

And you've been a forum member for more than a year now. That's much longer than my nearly-three-months of being here.

Besides, there's nothing wrong with being old. You're much wiser, and you can get served without having to take your passport to the bar with you.

RE: INTRODUCTIONS - leave a post to introduce yourself


I'm a big fan of Alkaline Trio the band so my name used to be "Alkaline_fairy" (and still is on a lot of boards) but I got bored of typing it a lot so I shortened it to "Alka".


What's an Alkaloid?

We don't know :)

We merely thought that Alka sounded lovely and somehow eastern European, but thought it might be short for Alkaloid, which sounds vaguely scientific.

But we did some basic net research and discovered that alkaloids do exist and are involved in the manufacture of pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetic and food products. Also that they are a class of pyrazoles! Imagine that!

And wasn't there something in school about alkaloid batteries?

Having it short for a band is far better.

Alka, why not leave a message in the music forum pimping the band, especially if they have a myspace account so other people can check out their stuff.

Titus: Oh, alkaline batteries! Of course! I've learned something today!

I forgot to bring my bag to work this morning, so now I have tea without Hobnobs. I'm also rather drunk still. If you're offering biscuits, though, I'll have some. I'd swap classified documents for a packet of Hobnobs right now.


Good Morning, Dead Actress! Welcome to the forums, please feel free to dive in, tell us a little about yourself, get to know us. We're a friendly bunch.

Hi!

Just thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm Norwegian. With a Swedish mother, so I guess I should really say Scandinavian. I like books, writing, beer, whisky, music (everything from black metal to country) and snow.

This summer I have developed an allergy against sunlight. Whee.
And I love Patsy Stone.

Yes, give the drugs to Patsy! The poor woman needs them like we need food!

What kind of freakish god gives a person an allergy to sunlight in the middle of summer? That's just cruel. But it does mean you'll end up with perfect patsyish alabaster skin, so perhaps there is a plus side.

As for music tastes, everything is so cross-genre nowadays. Bring on the black country and the sugar metal!

Welcome to the board :)

Black Country Metal!

That's where the next revolution will come from...

And this metal sugar, is it granulated?

I like Twinkies. A twinky party would be a good way to celebrate the new members we've just picked up.


Let's hope these new and mooky members spread the word, and invite their mooky friends- the more mookiness, after all, the better.
