If you see something that makes you think you're hallucinating, just get a stiff drink (or some water, if you're underage) and scroll down to the next post. It's probably Scorp.

And good grammar, spelling, and capitalization are always nice. And be nice to Drakefyre. And ignore your karma. And if he who is currently known as el presidente bothers you, don't try to complain. It won't get you anywhere. And it's AlorAEl.

...Or don't ignore your karma seeing as it's a five :) . Remeber to edit your posts (the edit button is at the top of your post) instead of double-posting.

FEAR TEH SCYTHE. *cowers beneath Drakey's withering glare*

I love newbies. Especially ones with godawful grammar and spelling. I don't want to kill any of them. Really.

Seriously, people around here don't like it when others forget to capitalize, punctuate or otherwise make their posts intelligible.

Some basic rules:

1. "Their" is possessive, "they're" is a contraction for "they are." Do not confuse the two. The same goes for "your" and "you're."

2. Capitals are used at the beginning of a sentence, and for proper nouns. They should always be used such, but not for much else (all caps for emphasis = bad.)

3. If English is not your first language, that's fine. If it is, however, there's really not much excuse for having horrible grammar.

All grammatical rules aside, just have fun, and don't steal Alorael's sig or skribbane. And watch out for the Revere Brigade.

Um.. He/she is from Finland. I know we have come to expect immaculate grammar from Finns, but please, cut the guy/gal a little slack?
Anyway, welcome.
Just be yourself if you are nice, and pretend to be somebody nice if you are not.
Please try not to double post, and beware of those few members who manage for various reasons to get away with murder.
Oh yes: beware the wrath of Drakefyre, which is terrible when it falls.

That was intentional, right?

Just what do you mean by that?! Are you implying something?

Hi, Lost Hope. Welcome to Spiderweb, and step carefully. There are falling objects like crazy. And all those other things the others said matter for nothing compared to the most important rule of all, getamac.

Hello. Welcome to Spiderweb. Enjoy your stay. Be terse. As I am. At the moment, that is. That was a long sentence. So was that. ... Much better.

Welcome to insanity central. Just try to love everyone and you'll do fine. We all love each other, even when we're hating each other. Kind of. Umm, yes, alright, they just came and told me it's time to take my anti-pyschotics now, so, welcome.

splitting all in twain.
For his peace...
-for his peace...
... was the peace...
... was the peace...
... of the sword.
And the Glory of the Light did shine upon him.

Short answer: Yes.

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone

The only reason so many Finns arrive here is because Arctic Wolf is unfairly biased towards not eating fellow residents of Finland. I'm sure there's a lawsuit waiting to happen there somewhere.

—Alorael, who would also like to welcome Lost Hope. And if you don't understand things, that's okay. In fact, that probably says good things about your mental health and stability.

The single best bit of advice I have for new members is to not take insults, arguments, or miscellaneous flames seriously or personally. Just remember that and you'll do fine.

Oh, and it's best for new members to not give out those insults. People will take them from old members, but not new ones.

Just one question that popped into my mind... when does one stop being a new member?

And the Glory of the Light did shine upon him.
