Default Hear ye, hear ye! Factions are now reopened for recruiting!

That's right. If you ever wanted to join one of my (famous) factions, now's your chance. Thanks to our amazing commander-in-chief, I have full behind-the-scenes access once again.

So step right up. Here's my personal favorites:

LTT is a personality construct in Rand's head
The Dark One will destroy the Pattern
Rand was chosen by the Pattern, not the Creator

Welcome. lol. I clicked the link of the third one to see if I was already in the faction and saw the options available. pretty sure you didn't want me having that access

Edit: all three work fine now. glad you fixed that

Yeah, me too. I'm already not a member of my own Construct faction*... I could see someone having fun and deleting me from the rest of them too.


* Apparently I quit, so I need special permission from my faction champion (me) to rejoin. Only there's no mechanism for me to re-add me. Tam's looking into it for me, though.

It's almost as if that faction is a separate voice inside my head, and I just can't reintegrate...

I never really saw the point in joining your own faction. If you're the champion of it you probably believe it.

Numbers, my friend. The champion isn't included in the main page count.

which means you're just padding the count...double-dipping if you will.

I just happen to think it's kind of silly to not count yourself in your own faction.

But if it really makes you feel better - sure. I'm desperate to prove my numerical superiority.

Ok, as long as you admit to it, it's fine. I get the moral victory that way. =D

Just got an email saying I joined your "Rand was chosen by the Pattern, not the Creator" faction. I was unaware I had done so? o__O? Uhm...since I seem to have joined something unawares, could you explain what evidence you have for it to me? That way I at least know what I've joined? Hehehe.
Never understood why the "DO will destroy the pattern" faction is so small. The pattern is his prison...soooo...in order to escape, he has to break free of it. Why would he recreate his prison? o__O? I mean, you could argue he would try to imprison the creator in another pattern-like thing, but that would be something else, not the same pattern...

Hm. Well, I just approved the people who'd been queueing for Light knows how long. So obviously you believed in it at one point or another.

Anyway, I haven't had that particular discussion in a very long time, so you'll have to give me a bit of prep time before I can be properly convincing.

The message board and main site have different user databases. Look at the top right of the page, where it says "register" (next to Help).
