Default Hello

So I was just looking, and I saw this part of the forums and I figured I would finally formally introduce myself.

I guess I have been here for a little bit now, and I may have gotten off to a bit of an interesting start, having already immersed myself in some hotly contested debates. Ooops

I hope that doesn't tarnish my image too much with most of you.

::Smiles with my best grin::



Well, the quick about me...
I live in South Florida.
I enjoy boating, drinking(guess what my favorite beer is), reading, relaxing on the beach, golf...in no particular order or combination.

I have been reading wot, like many of you for years, although I kind of stopped there for awhile when I began to fear the series would never be completed. I guess that is why I never really participated in a wot community before. I have been on other non-wot forums though, and still am active on a few.

Its funny, I guess I fell out of the wot universe for sooo long, that I didnt even know the series was being completed until recently, like three months ago.

But upon finding that out, I started another complete re-read(it had been years), and then got TGS, and now am eagerly anticipating TOM.

Cheers all!

Welcome to the Insanity, Jay! Come visit the chat, where all the cool people used to live and will again once I make them. I mean... encourage them.

As public policy, we approve of this.

Hmm... Your favorite type of beer?

I'm gonna go with Cold. That's mine and I find most people are fond of cold beer. (I couldn't think of an original beer joke.)

So how are you today?

Doing well. Thank you for asking. A bit late for East Coast time right now on a work night, but I am usually a night owl.

And the beer? It was Corona. I guess you missed my avatar

Nice. Haha I can't hold being a New yorker against you. Both of my parents are. I might hold it against you if you're a Jets fan though

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland Jay!!! (I will def hold it against you... GO SOX! GO PATS! YANKEES AND GIANTS SUCK!!! ~ahem~) 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: We don't all agree about the issues regarding the military action in Iraq. Post about this issue at your own risk. Things seem to be under control now. Though, there have been some flare-ups….be careful. We have had our own TLers over there, back home safe and sound, hope it stays that way. (I can't wait to be able to delete this Addendum.)

Addendum 2 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 3 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 4 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. Feel free, however, to respond to Gonzo, our Resident Troll, we love him like a red-headed step child.

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. ~looks around~ our biggest offender has not been around for a while ~sniff~


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. 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!

Best when served right out of an ice cold cooler, while relaxing on a beach, sitting in a chair and watching the waves roll in.

first off corona is not beer

but welcome to theoryland enjoy your stay if you have a political opinion or an opinion of shoes or an opinion of the state of socialism or you have an opinion about food or have an opinion of bodily functions of the embarrasing kind and if you have a thick enough skin to dissuade the sulfuric acid comments directed at your person then join us over at the non-wot board

And in Corona's defense, there is no better Sunshine State Beer, it goes perfectly when hanging out at outdoor Tiki Bars overlooking the beach.

Now granted, I wouldn't order it in a bar in say...Pittsburgh, but down this way, it becomes more than a beer, its a lifestyle.

Oh, I had to click on the link in your Sig...The Greatest Thread. Congrats, even though I'm a bit late with the well wishes.

gotta agree with Zan here. calling Corona beer is like calling water moonshine.

that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a cold Corona or Amstel in the sun on occasion.

I'd say Corona is close to soda than beer

oh, right. welcome
