Not super feelin the "introduce yourself in 420 words or less" intro post vibe today, but hey, I'm Lii, I've been lurking TL for like five years (seriously) and finally got around to joining like last week. I'm also Liiane on tarvalon.net, so if you're there too and I know you, hai, and if I've met you at JordanCon or somewhere, also hai.

Hmm. 411 with a quickness. I used to work in law but I'm now disabled and 95% homebound (which is REALLY, REALLY boring) so I decided now was as good a time as any to go back to school. I'm working on my master's in lit, online. I'm super laid-back, like to play and joke around but not in a dick way (for serious, if I ever hurt your feelings please tell me and I'll apologize because I guarantee it won't have been intentional), tend to use far too much profanity for my own good, and enjoy talking like a sad ghetto pirate when I'm bored. I'm super into musical theatre, ballet, and knitting, I read like... ALL THE TIME, I like to cook, I'm ridiculously anal about keeping a clean house yet also incredibly lazy (it boggles the mind), I support animal rights and MOAR LITERACY FOR ALL and I have two cats and an about-to-be-husband who is currently crawling around the living room floor playing hide-and-go-seek with them. We're broke as fuck but life is good. :)

Hmm. Prolly other stuff, but I'm bored of this now. Obligatory intro post CHECK! :D

Hi Lii! For those who don't know, Lii was one of the people working on the Cadsuane thing. I just met her, but she seems alright. I might have met her at JordanCon but I honestly don't know. I met a lot of tv.net people but have few names for faces.

We may or may not have met. I'm told I met a lot of people, or at least that they met me. >.> If neither of us remember, does it still count?

Welcome to TL, Lii!!

Although, is it really a welcome, if you've been around for almost as long as I have? (I feel old, now :( )

If you put a tree in a box allowing it to fall and not fall at the same time, would hearing both things at once scramble the brains of the said amateur philosophers long enough to get some peace and quiet around here? Because seriously, THAT is the more important question in all of this.

Sarevok, I'm pretty sure I remember when you joined. Which, in turn, I'm pretty sure takes me past the point of lurkerdom straight into stalkerville aboard the creepy mccreeperton express.

Anyways, it's about time I got around to creating an account, if only so I can peek over at the join date on it every so often to remind myself how long I've been doing this. :D

I think there will be no more Raisings; they could ruin The Unreasoner's "youngling-rep" (aka noob-rep) system, and it is priceless.

Are there going to be any more Raisings? There is a mightly lot of novices going into TG.

Edit to Add: Arrrgh! Welcome to Theoryland!

But he is taking a break now which is going to bugger up that whole system anyway. Not that I ever understood it anyway :confused:

Welcome to TL Lii, I like your style :D

As for raisings, unless it is possible to bribe your way further up the rankings I fear it may never happen. Or not for me anyway. Don't contribute nearly enough to the WoT discussions to qualify.

Hi Lii! How are you gentlemen?

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Lii!!! (Obligatory greet post CHECK!!!!:D :p)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!
Zaela Sedai, Official Theoryland Greeter, Mistress of Novices
