Hi Theorylanders!.
I've been stalking Theoryland for some while. I like all the theories you folks come up with and the community seems awesome. So let me introduce myself...
I've been reading(and rereading) the WoT series since 2006. I felt hollow when RJ died, but I believed Brandon could continue the story. And so far, he hasn't failed(IMO!).
My favourite book is Winter's Heart and my favourite characters are Mazrim Taim and Mat.


Looking forward to talking too all of you!
PS: I read Zaela's Sedai post :D

Playing wow since 2008, but only on private servers.

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Baro!!! (wow... you read my post already, how sweet, points for you! Dahl...chains for you, not that you'll mind)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: 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 2 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 3 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. We like to try and use enough wit to neutralize the trollies without help...

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. ~do not feel you MUST click on Lordy's sig links and join just cause he's Lordy... it's not mandatory, butt shhhh! I did not tell you that!

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 there are always ways to fight back! With your on bag o'quotes of course!

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!

Yes. It is attrociously boring to stalk Zanguini. But everyone has to learn the skills of tracking and hunting a human being somewhere, and he's a nice way to ease in. Remember you aren't allowed to actually hurt him in the final exam but drugging as well as embarassing photographs, tattoos, and hair shaving are all entirely permissable. Remember that for a perfect grade, you have to steal all his eyelashes then dye the eyelids pink.

Anyhow. Welcome to Theoryland, Barosanu. The point of this community is to have fun and relax in an informal intellectual environment where you can talk about your interests and hobbies with people who share them. Also, you can be really bloody crazy and we promise we won't notice if you can keep it under a threashhold. So pull up a chair (really, don't sit on the couch in the corner, it is for the entropic nutjobs), have a snack (just not from the pantry, we've had to poison every third foodstuff to keep RS from raiding and it is in the process of backfiring wonderfully), and make yourself at home.

Don't worry, I am not stalking people.
Not if it is not necessary.

Indeed, Zaela Sedai. Thank you for your welcome!

The Naz is back welcome number 22

Welcome Baro!

You may call me Naz!

*Sets himself on fire*

Your weekly schedule might not be all that interesting, Zan, but I find the knowledge valuable. It's good to know where I can find you if I had to hunt you down for mistreating my first-sis. (I want that evil emoticon!!)
