Hello Rhea.

I was also at the Con and I too look forward to getting to know you. I also admire your bravery (insanity?) at accepting Pops' 'Shine. I, myself, was fine with sample some of Eclipse's Chivas. =D

LOL What you will read next is what most heard me unfortunately say numerous times Saturday night "I grew up on this stuff". Although this is true I did not in my youth drink quite so much at one time. LESSON LEARNED!:D

indeed, lesson learned, although, as I said, your bravery is impressive. Then again, I've grown up with -30 degree winters and been buried under tons of snow and yet I cannot for the life of me convince anyone to have a Theoryland North get together up here in January, so perhaps where we are raised has something to do with perceived heroic behaviour. ;)

Welcome to TL, Rhea ... Rhea? Do you mind if we drop the echo? :)

I've been hearing and reading about the 'con so much I'm quite jealous of everyone who went. It's my own fault. I had the chance and ... ~heaves deep sigh.~ Maybe next time.

In any case, you've met the crowd and STILL showed up on the forum, so once can assume you'll stick around for the nitty-gritty posting here and there. I look forward to it. :D

And now for the obligatory questions:
Favorite character? Book? (both in the series and out) Favorite scene of the series? Favorite color? Quest = what? Capital of Assyria? Air spee- ok, ok, I'll quit.

Favorite bubblegum flavor?

Anyways, welcome. I would ask you to join us crazies in the chatroom, but I'm not certain if it exists in any worthwhile capacity anymore. Sad day.

Firseal
05-06-2010, 02:05 AM
Hello Rhea. I am Firseal. You didn't meet me at JordanCon because I probably don't exist. Or I am two steps from paranoid sociopathy, and am ghastly afraid of meeting more people whose existances I have to disprove. Or else I am just garden variety misanthropic / introverted, and would avoid any large massing of people like the plague.

But the smart money is on not existing. People have been calling me a soulless machine intelligence for years, and it hardly would be nice to disprove them would it?

Anyhow. Welcome to Theoryland. Have fun. Avoid the self-immolating loons. Don't eat anything from the pantry - most of it is poisoned, booby trapped, counter-booby-trapped, claimed already, or being watched by a starving, possibly insane RS with a sharpened spoon.

Seriously, guys, can we get the spoon away from him? He is really disturbing me.

Anyhow, you are here to have fun. Enjoy yourself. Occasionally throw rotten fruit at your foes. You know, relax and discuss both the books of Jordan and everything else with likeminded (i.e. teetering on the precipice of madness) individuals. The goal is to be less stressed, more cheerful when you are here. Here of course being a mental state, since you obviously aren't here since Theoryland as a location doesn't exist (well... we could try to find the physical servers...) but you know what I mean.

Nice to have you aboard.

He fabricated the claim that anyone ever accused him of intelligence out of whole cloth. The rest is fairly accurate, though.

Zaela Sedai
05-06-2010, 04:38 PM
Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Rhea!! (you drank with us the first time you met us...mwhahahahahaa)As I'm sure you've noticed, we have a pretty decent community of WoT fanatics over here. One of the ways that we keep it all friendly is a short list of courtesies we ask people to follow and, once in a while, actually do get followed. Imagine that! Insane people following some sort of order!


1) Don't flood the board with multiple THREADS all at once.
Allow us the time to absorb, evaluate, and discuss, OR LAUGH at one or two ideas, OR JOKES at a time. Some of us like to do a little research before responding and that can take a little time. Of course, we also have those others who are just a bit slow. Read that as "just can't handle more than one thought in their heads at once" or "dial-up modem". Your choice. I'd suggest "have a real life", but not likely. Does anyone still have dial up? Wow...it's getting hard to give the slow people an excuse

Addendum to 1) Try to stay on topic.
Going off on tangents can be super fun and is something we are all guilty of your's truly included but try and keep threads on topic unless, 1) the thread is dead or 2) the thread naturally moves over to another topic. This rule is much more lax for joke threads, pop culture threads...etc.

2) Try to back up your opinions & theories.
You'll get a lot more respect if you can. Quotes from the books (of which you CANNOT read too much) are your best weapon. Quotes from interviews are semi-acceptable. Gut feelings are pseudo-acceptable. Whitecloak blind-faith is best submitted while wearing asbestos panties.

3) Feel free to get as emotionally involved as you'd like.
Discussions can get very heated. But try not to take things personally. Remember: we only insult the ones we love. Or the ones we eventually hand over to the Trollocs.

4) Be respectful.
A lot of people have been around Theoryland for a long time. Being a Youngling means you're new around here. We do understand that you may have been reading WoT forever, but if you're gonna pick a fight regarding a WoT theory with someone who's an Elder, Ancient or Hero, understand that they've been around for a while now, and probably have posting friends. And Tamyrlin is Lord of the Board for a reason: this whole place is his brainchild. Keep that in mind. They also have posting enemies.... a good little bit of information to tuck away.

Addendum to 4: This is an international community.
In regards to the Non-WoT discussion groups, please respect the opinions of people from nations and cultures other than your own, even if you disagree with them or the policies of their leaders and politicians. Try to remember that not everyone here has the same outlook or life experience that you might. If you want to send a letter or e-mail to anyone in particular to indicate any specific moral, educational, intellectual, or genetic deficiencies they may have, feel free. Just please don't do it here.

Addendum 1 to Addendum 4: We don't all agree about the issues regarding the military action in Iraq. Post about this issue at your own risk. Things seem to be under control now. Though, there have been some flare-ups….be careful. We have had our own TLers over there, back home safe and sound, hope it stays that way. (I can't wait to be able to delete this Addendum.)

Addendum 2 to Addendum 4: Please no angry profanity.
If you really need to tell someone off, be creative. And replacing characters with @$$ does NOT constitute creativity. I like tend to like the Shakespearean approach myself. The smarter and more subtle you are with it, just makes the person look that much more an idiot.


Addendum 3 to Addendum 4: Please be nice to Newbies.
We were all new at one time you are one right now and there is no need to come down on anyone for asking questions that to the elder community may be basic knowledge. This is for you to remember after you've been here awhile.


Addendum 4 to Addendum 4: Please TRY not to feed the Trolls.
Trust me, it ain't easy at times, but ignore the obvious instigators. Just sit yourself down between the Heroes and Ancients sharpening the WTF Couch sticks. There are many on the board who know how to deal with this breed, leave them to it. It can be quite entertaining. If things get too offensive to the population in general, Mods will intervene. Feel free, however, to respond to Gonzo, our Resident Troll, we love him like a red-headed step child.

5) Please don't use the New Users Forum to recruit.
We have plenty of room in the other forums for begging for support for factions, theories, and the TCA. Please let the newbies look around for a while before taking sides in any pseudo-battles. ~looks around~ our biggest offender has not been around for a while ~sniff~


6) Most important: Have Fun!
We do this because we love it and like to think that we are, at least, reasonably intelligent. Hell, some of us have deluded ourselves into believing that we've evolved into supremely intelligent beings! Half the posters here believe that divine supremacy has already come to them! My vote is for Frenzy, and myself, of course. You know the Truth when you see it. Don't let T and her massive bag o' quotes fool you. We will assume some intelligence on your part. You found us, didn't you? Until you prove otherwise…and there are many who have, you'll be safe. If you get hurt if you do prove otherwise, I will offer my one free Healing…but just that once. After that you get to meet a special pair of chains, Mwahahahaa

Remember, you EARN your respect here, it's not given out freely and some may never know the pleasure.


Welcome to our little rounded corner! It’s a great time!



Enjoy!

Welcome Rhea! I am glad you came to join us, despite meeting at Jordancon. I was the one trying to lure people to play "Are you a darkfriend?".
