I've had this account for over a year now, but have only just got around to, y'know, using it.

So, introductions. I'm Davidus Tertius Rex, and I've been reading WoT for about five years now. Actually, it was Lupusdeusest who first acquainted me with the books. We were in the same Physics class at Uni and she was mourning RJ's passing. So I borrowed her copy of TEotW to see if it was any good. When it transpired that someone else still had her copy of CoT, I figured I was sufficiently hooked by this point to just go out and buy the damn thing.

She was also the one who bugged me to get an account here, and I'm finally making use of it as we do a complete reread in preparation for AMoL's release.

Oh frequent Warder and the delight of mine eyes! Welcome!

Welcome, Davidus! Do you mind if I shorten that to Davidus? You can call me Zombie, everyone else does. The other ZS will be along shortly to greet you formally, no doubt.

How about Rex to avoid confusion with Dav?

Welcome to Theoryland; I'm guessing you're the guy with Lupus in the mistcloaks?

Davidus, or D3R possibly (no, that doesn't work at all), or Rex is fine. And yes, I'm the one in the Warder cloak where Lupus is wearing the Mistcloak.

DRex is very close to Drax. He may like that.

Cease this shameless postcount inflation at once, vile woman!

Also, I like D-Rex. I like it a lot.

Lupusdeusest

I think it well, very well indeed, and I am always right.
I would say "I'll inflate YOUR post-count", but it sounds far too kinky. Instead, I shall raise my heron-mark chin and sniff in your general direction.

Davidus Tertius Rex
05-30-2012, 08:47 AM
I am always right.

Confused again, I see. It is I who is, in fact, always right. You are only right when what you've said doesn't contradict whatever I may have said. Unless whatever I did say was intentionally misleading or obfuscating, then saying things contrary to what I've said would make you right. Unless of course I was only pretending to be misleading...

Hang on, why are we even having this conversation via La Intervebs when we're sitting in the same room?

"For the record, I blame you."

Lupusdeusest
05-30-2012, 09:01 AM
Of course, whenever you lay this false claim, you always say something completely incorrect immediately afterward. Whilst I admire your recent efforts to stymie this inevitable chain, you have again, dear sir, fallen into a Trap. This is not a case of me bribing the architect first - nay! not that! - but a case of the spacetime-altering nature of my vagina. Because of its mystical properties - properties the penis thankfully lacks! - anything I say is right.
The vagina is also cause behind the well-known facts that it is always a man's fault, even if noone can work out how, and a woman's rights are what she says they are. I say now it is my right to always be correct. I allow moments of error so as to seem more human, to draw you further into my deathly traps of death.
I believe we are talking thus due to the alluring nature of one Tom Lehrer, as well as Because We Can.

Davidus Tertius Rex
05-30-2012, 09:08 AM
I do believe, dear lady, that you are confusing Always Being Right (i.e. ME) with the female gender's (obviously erroneous) belief that She Is Always Right.

I had thought it beyond the laws of the natural world, but clearly one CAN read too much WoT. It is the only explanation for such bizarre ideas. You are channelling some sort of hideous super-Sue amalgam of every female character.

Lupusdeusest
05-30-2012, 09:11 AM
Oh, piffle. That is what you think. I have evidence.

Lupusdeusest
05-30-2012, 09:15 AM
You are channelling some sort of hideous super-Sue amalgam of every female character.

Are you saying I am even more super than the Supergirls?
Our world is indeed doomed!

Well, you might be one of those Mary Sues who end up being Too Good For This World.

...


On another note; I hate TvTropes.

Yes. Unfortunately, the downside is this exposes you to the same level of hatred and vitriol as Egwene.

Admire my win. Be dazzled by my brilliance.
But it is precisely this that is the reason I deliberately make mistakes. I know you, a mere male, cannot mentally cope with the heavenly delight that is me. The Creator made women to please the eye and trouble the mind, and I see it as my goal in life to near blind mankind with my awesome, yet leave them enough sight to be troubled by it - those little sprinklings of fault-made-good in the shine of my presence.

Lupusdeusest

Being exposed can be fun!


However, this simply means I am a strong female doomed to success permitted only in males. I believe I can take that, as long as I get to tell whoever my Gawyn is that they are a woolhead.

// ACCURSED FACTS AND LOGIC!!

Aye, that's the spirit. There's far too much of that sort of nonsense here.

Hahaha, this thread is hilarious. :D

Welcome to TL, Rex! :)

And as for post count inflation: you're nowhere near my newbie thread, so it's all good. :p

Oh, you would say that.

Haven't you ever been exposed, to know not the fun of it? Poor Gonzo...

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Rex!!! (It's official, Rex is your name. Though i'm not sure we could ever confuse Dav with someone else.;))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
