Well, as we've currently had a bunch of new people coming in, and I'm lazy, and I want to greet them all, I decided that it was kind of annoying to have to have them all make their own threads, no? So, in that train of thought, I made this thread.

So, what is this thread? Simple. Just a place to introduce yourself, and say 'hello' to everyone. I figured that it would be a lot more convenient for all you new guys, and more convenient for all of us, too, rather than have a bunch of welcome threads filling up General Discussion.

Oh- and one more thing: James shows an excellent way not to post. If you're new, make sure to read the rules, as well as the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). After that, I'd check out the Announcements subforum, and if you're looking for a great way to spend some time, read Version 1, Version 2, and Version 3 of SotF! (Survival Of The Fittest) It's excellent writing, if I do say so myself, and I'm sure you will enjoy it. Oh, and just a little preemptive 'Welcome!' to all, because, as I said above, I'm lazy.

And Yoss- well, you stole my 'Happy Birthday SotF Help' thread idea, so now we're even

EDIT: Oh, and I got so caught up in the other stuff I forgot to say the other thing that was wrong about James' post. Do not type in all Caps Lock. Ever. It's not a good thing. And now that that's been said, I hope you enjoy SotF!

There seem to be a lot of rules for just an introduction thread.

FYI: CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.

Sorry for adding to the "Hey I'm new" thread clutter, and thanks for your pre-emptive welcome.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, WE CAN'T USE CAPS LOCK?! (Sarcasm makes it okay, right? ...Right? :P)

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS, BUT I JUST HOLD DOWN THE SHIFT KEY. FEELS MORE NATURAL THAT WAY, FOR WHATEVER REASON.

Umm... yeah.

*waves hello sheepishly*

So far I've flopped around in the chatroom and posted one V4 character, but official hellos are cool too. Hello, folks! I like what you've got going here and I intend to ruin it only slightly.

Hi, my name is Scipher and I'm an alcoholic who will most likely hit on you if you are a female above the age of 18.

I'm a mod, been here since V2. All of my characters except for one have been based on my friends at the start of their journeys. What happens to them along the way, well, they may stray from their RL counterparts.

CAPSLOCK ON CRUISE IS LIKE BARRENS CHAT - I think like 3 people will get that reference

I am of the opinion that I love the fact we are getting an assload of new members, but I am also of the opinion that TV Tropes is stupid, and I hate it when people use Trope terminology in posts, chats, real life conversation.

Anyways, welcome all, and if you have any questions...ask Crash and leave me alone on my porch with my shotgun and jug of whiskey
Is in...

I was going to comment on how bad of an into thread this was. But then I saw a couple actual intros, rendering my pontification moot. Also, Death disapproves with not typing in caps lock. Of course, he's prolly got an all-caps font, seeing as he has caps that are caps among caps in the sense that they are bigger caps than the other caps. Also also, "caps" no longer looks like a word.

On a more serious note, how exactly does one go about reading through v1 and v2? I mean, there's a bajillion threads in a bazillion areas, each with a zillion people doing a grillion different things, and there's not much way to tell the order except by looking for post dates.

(A final, less serious note [again]: "bajillion" is evidentally not a word. Neither is grillion. But zillion and bazillion are A-OK.)

I've heard bajillion used before.

Anyway, what people tend to do is visit the Wiki and pick a particular character. All the characters have a list of threads they featured in on their profile page. Then just pick a character and go through it that way. It's not the best, but believe me I've tried ordering the threads chronologically and it's A) Very headache inducing for me and B ) Probably more trouble than it's worth, because the above method works too.

And welcome Rattlesnake. Death rocks.

Hi, I'm Laz. You may remember me from such threads as The Last Gilroyal and Where The Sinners Gather.

I'm SotF's resident paranoiac. I've been here since the previous SotF site and am known to senselessly whore my characters and generally piss people the fuck off just to vent, especially when it comes to TVTropes.

Also, have some pie.

Where "a particular character" = "Adam Dodd".

In all seriousness, this page has a good list of the characters you might consider following.
