Just wanted to say a quick hello to everyone, almost first post here.
Hope everyone is alright.
How are you?
Do you have any interesting anecdotes about your experiences during the past few weeks?
but it's obvious from the posting style it's either Jonathan King or Tom from Editors.
Interesting anecdotes? I've just started learning Bulgarian and it's been pretty good so far and I've seen how hard English would be to learn as a none native speaker, as there are so many silent letters and words that sound the same, but mean different things.
Was that actually interesting, I'm not sure?
How are you?
I've managed to blag myself a full day at work where I just get to sit at a computer doing fuck all. Plus, I have the office to myself so I can play music too.
to move out there at some point this year. English isn't very widely spoken and all the real important stuff like opening bank accounts, registering and the like is handled purely in Bulgarian. Plus I reckon if you move somewhere, you should be able to speak the native language and not expect others to adhere to your language.
Don't know whether to reply to you on this. It's not that I don't want to, it's just what I'm aiming to do out there might be seen as an attention seek.
I'm aiming to volunteer and help out in an organisation that works with orphanages that I've become part of. Then, as more time goes on, I'll get more contacts and help other orphanages. Eventually, hopefully, do some summer camps.
I'm gonna be doing a normal job as well, so this will be things I do in the evening and weekend.
It's gonna be pretty cool when I can get out there.
I'm sure I've seen Foley in an awesome dinosaur costume like the one in the OP's profile pic.
The pic is of a wrestler called Dragon Dragon, I just think it's kinda amusing. Yes, wrestling is one of my vices.
As an aside, yes I am completely new user, not a joke/false/duplicate profile by someone else.
whenever we have one of these threads are you able to do a quick check to see if it's another user?
a) it avoids a whole thread of Hi *insert user here*
b) it stops new users from being talked to like cunts
It was a nice enough introductory post. If it was a massive attention seek that'd be different but nowt wrong with a friendly hello...
It wasn't an attention seek, just all the other forums I've been on has always had intro threads by new people.
If it is a genuine new user EVERYTHING the post will be followed by...
WHO IS THIS?
DOES ANYONE KNOW WHO THIS IS???
And it's really, really fucking boring.
you're either with me or against me, capisci?
Stop being so daddy-ish
WHO'S YOUR DADDY?!!!!!!ONE
Could be any member of Hawkwind.
But he's in fucknig hawkwind. Durrrrrrrrrrr.
But if I had come in as first post and said this was definitely a new user do you think anyone would have stopped posting all that up there?
Seriously, if you just posted something like *not fake* somewhere earlyish in the thread I reckon it would actually stop it.
I think a lot of people have some kind of resentment of being duped by current users, so don't engage normally. Not that they'd admit that.
If someone hasn't used the same IP or been clever there's no real linking in the system.
kik's various userids never match up, nor do a lot of CG's but you can generally tell by the email address.
Those clowns go to that much effort? Fucking hell.
The fact is it's really really easy to be very anonymous online.
Am I correct in guessing that you didn't lurk a huge amount before posting?
The reaction to this thread is standard :D
I lurked a little bit.
Thanks, it's all cool though, as you say standard reaction
is that sometimes, you'll post at the end of a thread and for no reason other than downright witchery, your post will hop up the board, as mine just has. Sean will be along any second now to tell us all about the new site and how it will all be fixed :)
Yeah, I've already popped my rebuild cherry.
I'm still at work and didn't have this thread open. Hopefully have done so now.
Apologies if you're actually a new user... the reason for the above is that people quite often leave here / get banned and then come back under a different username. Or just fancy a change of name.
Stick around for a couple of hundred posts and you'll soon become part of the furniture.
he talks to cupboards
no reason needed.
Then you won't go far wrong.
I'm the star of The Darcy Show and am having a Charlie Sheen-esque crack-fuelled meltdown.
I did expect it, as I have read the forums a few times before posting and seen these replicated users. it's all no bother.
have you ever knocked on wood? Do you know someone who has?
this is like the social board's national anthem:
Thank you, its awesome. :D
chopped wood, so I don't know whether that counts?
who once wrestled...
clap clap clapclapclap Super Dragon! clap clap clapclapclap
Have you seen that Botchamania as well?
but the newerwaves has proved to be pretty awesome in its own way
What's your fav new wave track?
Might have to go with a Cure track, not a massively popular one, but I really like Wrong Number
But then I would console myself with the fact that I could only go with Talking Heads :D
