Well I'm not new to the WoT community but I am new to Theoryland.

I tried to avoid boards for a while because the real world (husband, baby etc.) intervened but what can I say? I'm a WoT addict.

I used to post about 5 years ago at DM as LittleRyoko but honestly I kinda find you guys more interesting lately (shhhhhh. Don't tell DM!)

Anyways, hopefully I'll get to know you all and eventually get shot down by everyone too :D;)

shhhhhh. Don't tell DM!Oh, don't worry, they no doubt know that they are not interesting.

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Ty!!! (Yeah, we're more likely to scream from the top of DM that we're more interesting than DM LOL) 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!

It's a weekend and it's slower in the welcome threads than normal, so I thought I'd drop by and thank you for signing up and posting. Have fun and don't take anyone too seriously.

I think forward to shooting you down. :)

WELCOME to TL, Tyler's Mom. (Hrm. The most natural shortening of that would either be Mom or Tyler...mommie? Hrm. Yeah, I'll leave it to others to come up with the short for ya.)

The straitjackets are to the right, insanity wards to the left. Beware anyone offering cookies, kaf, or Fairy Dust (as they might contain C4, crimsonthorne, or allergens, respectively).

Now for some general questions that you do not have to answer if you do not wish to.
What is your favorite character in the series? Least favorite?
Favorite book in series? Out of series? Least favorite in series?
Favorite scene? Least favorite scene?
Who killed Asmodean?
Favorite flavor of bubble gum? Flavor of beef jerky?
Chicago or New York style pizza?

Avoid the crazy guy who tries to set himself on fire...he's a tad nuts.

Have fun, and welcome to the madness.

psssst, he is mainly talking about me. And Mato too. But especially Weird Harold. He takes himself seriously enough for all of us.

Dragonmount is a good place to cut your teeth. I think many of our members come here after having cut their teeth elsewhere.

Matoyak
10-03-2010, 07:56 PM
And Mato too.Oh yes, definitely don't take me too seriously, as there is a very good chance I'm either being sarcastic, don't know what I'm talking about, or am playing Devil's Advocate for kicks. Good advice, that. :)

Haha the abbreviation doesn't matter :)

My favorite character would have to be Mat as he is ridiculously like my husband (a soldier, flirt and total goofball) and the most fun character to read

Least favorite character would have to be Faile. She's been juvenille for too long without a lot of growth.

Favorite book in series would be a tie between LoC and KoD. I like KoD because it's where many
characters show intense development. LoC is just badass on many levels.

Least favorite book would probably be CoT. Not much progress but I still enjoyed it immensely.

Favorite scene is hard for a larger impact scene I kinda like Veins of Gold for a smaller I love Nyneave breaking her block and Lan rescuing her. That moment changes her character drastically.

For Asmodean I kinda like the Lanfear explaination. It would be "intuitively" obvious because Asmodean would have that gut reaction after seeing her die. As for the how, haha, I leave that one to the author :) I honestly wouldn't care either way, it's far from the most important question to be answered in the series

Lol, and Juicy Fruit gum, Teriyaki jerky, and New York pizza!

But I don't WANT to have to kill an Ewok... the dern critters are too cute for that :(

Anyhow... Welcome and if you dont mind your politics getting run along an industrial strength cheese grater and have a slightly thicker than normal skin or like dav cant get enough of the newest shoes then join us over on the non-WoT board because there there be monsters.

And it can't be Lanfear! No killing of Ewoks!

Welcome Ty!!

You may call me Naz!

I'd personally go for Tymo for a nickname, but then again, you guys tried to saddle me with "Owl" instead of "bowl."

*shakes head*

Well, would it disturb you all to know that the Tyler you are abbreiviating actually (no joke) is Tyler Durden? Brownie points to those who get the reference and yes, my husband and I really did name him that

so his middle name is Durden?

Oh.. and welcome to the harmless bunch!!!

Yes, it would :) +100 Brownie points for you!

But his middle name isn't Durden. His last name is. My husband was stationed with an explosives company a few years back in Korea and they gave him hell over his last name being Durden... And made him promise if he had a son that he would name that son Tyler.:D

Ah the movie with a big cock at the end. If I were to name the best movies I've seen Fight Club would be in the top 5. But then Norton and Pitt would both be in my top 10 male actors list and HBC on my top 10 female actors so a movie with all three...

Same here. When he was born my husband bought a new copy of the book to give to him when he's old enough to read it, lol, man my kid's gonna be messed up:p
