Pretty sure Grant and big_smile have been gone for a while, Baba came back some time ago under a new account, but since then has barely been around at all and Popcorn pops up when you least expect it.

I remember you from when I used to lurk these forums years ago. No, I am not Neo Yi.

God damn it, now I feel like a noob.

Yah, that was me. Definitely remember your screenname. Nice to see another familiar face.

Yes! Those were a blast.

I think I remember you, or at least someone with a very similar Hobbes avatar. And I remember the name Neo Yi, but not much else. Anyway nice to see/meet you (again?).

Not really -- I think Pop and a few others were using one for awhile, but it wasn't the GHZ's channel. We used to do AIM chats a lot but those died off.

Yes, if there's one thing she is, it's "pmpous".

Because you're an over-zealous newbie with nothing worthwhile to contribute who doesn't even bother to read all the posts in a thread before replying to it.

Ah, but unlike other newbies I can learn from my mistakes, and you don't know I can't contribute for a fact. This is a new experience for me, being part of an expanded community and all (I've previously been a member of an optionally anonymous forum). You don't have to like me but, forgive me, I'm going to try. For example: Just in these wonderful few hours we've had together I've learned a number of things that tick you guys off that was neglected to be mentioned in the forum rules...

- Do not try and force your agenda down other people's throats. (I'm very guilty of this.)
- Never use a signature. Ever.
- Do not overuse spoilers. (Just because it's a new shiny toy for me to play with, doesn't mean I can use it at every possible moment.)
- Do not post in all caps or use extra punctuation. (e.g. Post above this one)
- If you link, never link to the actual address. Make it part of the text, because otherwise, it's an eyesore.
- Posting on the original topic is moot if the conversation has moved elsewhere. (Unless you are the Original Poster, or you aren't a noob.)
- Do not mention memes, ever.
- Do not link unoriginal images (e.g. my first post), especially web-comics (e.g. my second) even if they are on-topic.
- Do not reply to many posts at once. The forum is not dead, people actually think before they post things. (Big difference from where I've come from)
- People with artistic skills, technical experience, have been here a long time, or have been given elaborate titles should be more respected than other posters.
- Although officially profanity/sexism/etc. is frowned upon, in certain cases, one can look the other direction when it is posted.
- If you are a noob, do not try to move the conversation elsewhere, even if it's somewhat related.
- Avoid making long posts wherever possible. (e.g. this post) ((I still have much to learn))
- Most importantly, time is the ultimate factor (If I can get past the initial hostility and follow the above rules, you will hopefully tolerate me, flawed opinions and all.)

Just give me a chance, is all I'm saying...is that fair enough?

Meh, as long as you have something to contribute like new videos/screenshots/info, or a thought out opinion that's more then a sentence or two then it's fine.
- People with artistic skills, technical experience, have been here a long time, or have been given elaborate titles should be more respected than other posters.
ppppfffffff, fuck those guys, with their titles in red or green text, and their "hey guys look how good i can draw, arent i better than you?" threads, and their 1000+ post counts. Maniacal, egotistical assclowns ruining the board for everyone if you ask me.
- Although officially profanity/sexism/etc. is frowned upon, in certain cases, one can look the other direction when it is posted
Man, fuck no, as long as you stay relevant to the topic at hand. I think you're trying to give this place too much class.

But my comments are often one or two sentences! I type slow dammit!

Also some tea-drinker said that brevity is the soul of wit.
