For the Newbies

Post by Cavenagh »

Well, there should be some....

Welcome.

Once upon a time there was The Board. The Worlds End. A place under the gaze of Neil Gaiman and his Goblins. We gathered there. Asked questions. Hijacked threads. Shifted around. There were mods. It is foretold they will return. We fought the trolls and fought the grind. Brought together by the work we all loved.

And we got together, made friends across the globe. Which wasn't flat. We got together, we got married, we made children. It was a place of humanity. Wrecked by spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam. We left the wreckage. It floated on a sea of spam until it sunk beneath the weight of spam.

And it's back. It's back here. A Neil Gaiman message board for us all.

So it may seem that some of us have been here for years, because we have. But there's always room for more.

So hi there Newbies.

Introduce yourself, if you want.

We're the kindly ones.

Once upon a time I was a newbie too, and I am awkward and anxious and so I lurked, I am an antisocial introvert who also needs to belong to a family. And so it took me a long while to open up. Smaug told me no one was going to get to know me unless I posted things and told them about myself. So I did, and they accepted me, and they understood my geeky references, and now they can’t shut me up. This is the best family I ever found.

And if you encounter a Fwoofy-headed dood claiming to run this place, just back out slowly and leave him to his delusions. It's better if you don't feed him, unless you have rum. I mean, rum is one of the things that makes this place run.

I could have gone many more years without Captain Poopshooter in my life.

Almost as long as Tongster's rainbow masturbation bunny suit from Something Positive.
