Greetings.
I've been lurking around for about a year now, thanks to the fact that I'm Mr. Fuzzy's missus so I heard about what was going on here whether I liked it or not, hehe. I came to one of the meets with him and Mata (I'm sorry I wasn't very sociable to those I met, I was a bit down).
I thought it was about time I signed up because I know who you all are and thought it would be nice to be part of a forum where people get beaten for improper use of English and punctuation and things... hehe.
So yes, hello and nice to meet you all officially now tongue.gif

Yesh, I know where you all live too ph34r.gif (just kidding).
I'm afraid I wasn't too happy, and wasn't really in the mood to try and raise my voice above the overly loud music to socialise with people I thought I would never meet again and was much happier to just continue reading smile.gif

Welcome to Matazone! I hope that you'll have fun with us. Here's the quick rule list, but only because I can copy, paste, and modify from all the other newbie threads where I've posted this. smile.gif
1) Be nice to people.
2) Don't be an idiot. (We don't have many here, but it's a good rule.)
3) Type in proper English with correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. You sounded happy that we mostly do so, so it shouldn't be any sort of problem.
Don't be afraid to ask questions. We promise to be nice, and the duct-tape crew should be along shortly to acquaint you with the ceiling. laugh.gif

'Ello! Nice to see you on here finally!

Hey *waves*

Met you at the London meet - admired your Swear boots. smile.gif Glad you made it.

To be fair Astarael, everything you've put IS indeed in the rules so doesn't need to be quoted on EVERY newbie thread.

Apart from which you sound preachy which is never a good start. *shrug* Mods don't do it to every newbie, so why do it?

It was an attempt to prevent the epidemic of newbies spamming up every thread in sight with unreadable posts, starting too many threads (10 a day... it was insane), and flaming everyone out of the water when they were disagreed with on the last forum site I liked. It was a nice place, but crappy forum manners were making it too annoying, so I left. sad.gif The mods could only screen so many posts, and a lot of obnoxious stuff got by. People here apparently don't need the lecture or don't care about spelling, so I may as well stop. Making up the new threats from Mata was fun, though. tongue.gif

Well, you could always continue to make up threats from me and post a small link to the rules. I found the threats quite amusing too. smile.gif

I understand completely why you've been doing this, and it is astonishing how few people look at the rules of a forum when they join, but Snuggs does have a point that restating them every time might be a little OTT!

Posted by: Astarael Oct 24 2005, 12:35 AM

Sounds like a good idea to me, then. The threats were the best part of the whole business anyway. smile.gif

Hey - I'm all for the new threats!

I occasionally find a picture of Mata, paint a little moustache on him, in a military uniform standing on a bed of puppy bones before sending it off into the net for my own amusement.

*sigh* I never did get out enough... wink.gif smile.gif

I would have replied sooner but my only internet access at the moment is through Mr. Fuzzy's computer, and he rarely lets me use it for more than 5 minutes at a go *hides*.
I was supposed to get 2MB broadband on Monday, but they didn't have the equipment to dig up the tarmac, so now I have to wait untill Saturday (then I can finally get to posting on here, yay!).
I appreciate what you said Astarael, but surely the fact that I'm Mr. Fuzzy's missus would give you a hint that I do well know what is and isn't allowed (what with Fuzzy grumping at me about grump worthy things on here for almost a year, lmao) biggrin.gif
Threats to Mata? Gasp!
...how and where do I join in? tongue.gif
