So I guess I should have done this earlier, but I got caught up in the moments (well, week) since I signed up.

Hello to everybody who might end up reading this :D My name's Chris, aka Khoram.

What else is there to say? I'm awesome. True story. :cool:

Just a quick mention: Thank you to any veterans and/or current soldiers who happen to be members of Theoryland. Your sacrifices mean a lot to me and my family, and I'm honoured to be a Canadian (not that I'm bashing on the Americans, though ;)). My we all remember the Fallen - all those who gave their lives for our freedom, especially on Rememberance/Veterans' Day.

Again, thank you very much for your sacrifices.

Chris

Thank you to any veterans and/or current soldiers who happen to be members of Theoryland.Any soldiers/veterans, or just those fighting for specific countries/ideas/ideals?

The fallen you want to remember (which I can understand, both in general and in very many specific cases) were often killed by other soldiers, who were fighting against our freedom.

PS Some people here now and then engage in some nitpicking. Just thought I'd warn you.

Thanks for the warning.

By veterans/soldiers today I mean those who have fought for our (Western) freedom.

Alas, this is how I've been brought up - support the Canadian troops (and other troops we're allied with).

I was celebrating Rememberance/Veterans' Day this morning (I'm at school, so it's a bit difficult ;)) in honour of those who have given their lives for our freedom, from the end of the First World War to those Canadian and American soldiers who died for us today.

I don't want to risk insulting anybody, but this is why I choose to celebrate Rememberance Day every November 11th - for those who have died (and survived) for us.

As a veteran I think your for your thanks and would like to invite you over to the non-WoT board ffor some interesting political/popular culture/current events/ fashion/ food discussions

And please tell me where i can meet you so you can buy my lunch. As I have told all of my coworkers, "What good is it to have a holiday in your honor if no one will buy you lunch."

"What good is it to have a holiday in your honor if no one will buy you lunch."

My thoughts exactly. ;) It would only make sense that you guys AT LEAST get a free lunch. At the very least.

Just because you haven't noticed it, though, doesn't necessarily mean it isn't there. Just wanted to point that out.

Hello and welcome.

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Khor!!! (We'll see how you feel about the US soilders once we invade Canadia!! Running joke you'll get used to it ;) Seriously though, that was very nice of you, thank you from both my parents:D)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!

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

Zaela: the US is just sore that we're the first people to have ever beaten them in war ;) Sure, the British, with some American soldiers, took over New France, but we still beat you when you guys tried to invade us.

No hard feelings. :D

Wouldn't that technically mean you beat the British though? I mean, I think we beat them worse than you did :p LMAO

Sure, you gained independence way before we did, but it was the Americans who the Canadians beat, not the British. :p

Only if you accept the legality of the American Revolution, though. Otherwise burning down the White House was destructing of British property.

Well, I've always recognized the American Revolution, so I view the burning of the White House to be the destruction of American property, not British.

Welcome Khor.. seems you've found the straighjackets and padded rooms by yourselves ;)

She's German, so I don't see what the Brits would have to do with it.

with all the centuries of marrying between royal houses in Europe, every king/queen is German

We're still technically independent. She's just a figurehead. Nobody in Britain really has any say over how we administrate ourselves. You don't see the Queen making any administrative decisions on the part of Canada.

I like to make an impression, and this is one way of doing it :D I don't mind the back-and-forth "discussion" about our countries (although I prefer to talk about Canada, but that's because I'm biased ;)). It's fun having these discussions. I really enjoy them.

The Naz is back welcome number 30:

Welcome Khoram!

You may call me Naz!

*Sets himself on fire*

Nitpicking? Well I have never been guilty of it I'm sure. Not me. Never. Ain't happened at all. No siree. And you can't prove a thing!

Thanks for the welcome, Naz.

And I can't prove a thing. Of course, I wouldn't dream of it. ;)
