Hello. If you would be so kind as to distinguish yourself from a spambot, we would appreciate it. :) (Normally, the name would work, but recently the spambots have been researching us a bit before posting.)

Welcome to TL, Shadow Killer!

Tell us something about yourself. (if only, like T mentioned, to destinguish you from a spam bot :) )

So you mean I can't teach my football to communicate and frighten the pants off the next door to door salesman?

Darn, I could have used new pants, not to mention the added bonus of a door to door saleswoman.

~comes in, quietly chuckling to herself~

Hi and welcome to TL, talking football :D

Tell us a little bit more - favourite book, character, pet theory, credit card number, if you were a WoT character, who would you be? Do you still believe LTT is real? Who killed that dude everyone likes to go on about?

~roasts marshmallows and makes herself comfortable on the ESC~ This could be potentially amusing.

Anaiya, you are chuckling to yourself. You are doing it quietly, but I can clearly see it. Would you share the reason for this with the rest of us?

*Holds up a bowl*

You can grab one of my nuts as a reward.

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland SK!! (Looks like we found a talker!!!) 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!

Only Pops'taer can properly welcome you to Theoryland. If I had time I would tell you why but I have to follow my "Bride's" orders and go pick up my granddaughter for softball practice. I will try to fill you in later as to why I am the greatest and most important. Of course by the time I get back all the others will have told you "NOT".....but welcome anyhoooooo!!! Psst, got any 'shine'?

Welcome, Shadow Killer and Iokepa (feel free to create your own intro thread, by the by, we love having newbie threads to play in >:} [we really need an evil emote again])

Seems people have taken over asking massive blocks of questions about your personal life, so I'll just do JWB's job of pointing out where the straitjackets are (to your right), and my own job of where the insanity wards are (down the hall, third door on the left), and wish you a happy stay.

My sincerest apologies for dissapearing but i had some family issues to deal with.

Tell us a little bit more - favourite book, character, pet theory, credit card number, if you were a WoT character, who would you be? Do you still believe LTT is real? Who killed that dude everyone likes to go on about? - ANAIYA SEDAI.

My favourite book would have to be 'Shadow Rising'. The theory that most intrigues would have to be who killed Asmodean, although i have no definite culprits in mind I find the ambiguity fascinating. I also feel the character I am most similar to would be an early Perrin Faile ruined him.

**** **** **** ***2- you can guess the rest (credit card number);)
