I think we should have an introduction thread, because while most of us, myself included, would prefer to just start posting right away, there are those who like introducing themselves in a more formal manner.

Also hello, and venture in the mafia depths only if you dare.

Oh, now I remembered MY first post!

*goes to read some old stuff*

...ummm...yeah. :-[
If I were you I would replace that with a big ol' fat [EXPUNGED]. I meant that literally: a new project of mine is to edit (if it needs it) every single post I've ever made.
*clears throat*
Anyway
Congratulations, you win the Most Arrogant Forumer Award! GreatWyrmGold grinds his teeth with the force of a thousand irate dragons as his treasure is stolen away! What do you do?
??? I didn't even know that there was an award like that! Why I am always the last one to know?  :(
So... what did I win? A plutonium cup? A bouquet of spines? A toothpick?

Well! As he grinds his teeth I poke the dragon with a stick, tell him that bruxism can cause tooth damage and chronic pain, and ask him if he wants some chocolate. Or cookies - sugar-free and plutonium-free!

Hiiii Shobak! :D
Good to have you onboard, the lad will see you to your cabin and dinner will be served in the mess hall at 1800 hours sharp.
We drill at dawn, be sure to set your alarm.

Seriously though, I didn't make an introduction thread, but I did make a thread in the upper boards specifically for my newbie DF questions. I like feeling special, too!
You'd need lots and lots of steel cable and a rocket to get me out of bed at dawn... With alarms, I either press snooze and/or bludgeon them and/or shoot at them.  :-[

Well... what else? I neither like nor dislike goats, and I have a permanent cold so miasma shouldn't affect me too much (but as I have until now avoided decaying corpses I cannot be sure).
GWG would be sad. I can now rise to steal the position; my happiness will make him feel better.

Eh, I'm not like that. I have a stand that if I make something public, I have to bear the consequences for that, even if it shows how naive I was - or maybe exactly because of that. It's a reminder how I can do things better, if I think they were bad in the past.
Besides, I do find it quite heart-warming in a way. A "silly, silly kid" way, but still. :P

Also, I vote this thread is stickied and becomes a permanent "Welcome, introduce yourself!" thread. Even the name is right!  :)

Welcome Shobak! Enjoy the collective nannering. Also, your thread brought me this post, which I will place in my sig and treasure each night as I go to sleep. I thank you for this.

I joined B12 to ask about some random DF mod I was making.

That was in 2007. I have been posting on this forum for about 30% of my life.

I don't like the idea of a mass-introduction thread... not like anyone would ever read it.
If someone wants to introduce themselves, I think it'd be easier for them just to make their own thread like this, not like it hurts anybody.
Making an all-purpose introduction thread for the forum is sort of like hanging a "WELCOME TO THE FORUM!" banner in one corner above a battered, fold-up plastic table with a few plates of stale cheese sandwiches and a bottle of flat soda, and then sitting nearby with a creepily welcoming grin, just waiting for someone to be lured in so we can greet them.

16.96% for me.

I'm also completely fine with someone wanting to introduce him- or herself.

Welcome to the asylum, Shobak.  Don't worry, if you aren't insane when you come in, the place will make you so.



Let me see, my story for the joining of the forum was that I was messing around on Dwarf Fortress, not having joined the forum since I thought I needed something significant to be in my first post, then I came across a minor bug that had caused a dwarf that still had the child tag mining, and made it my first post.  Soon after, I made my Dragonic Civilization mod (which has fallen to the wayside from lost interest), and went on the "If Bay Forum were a Mountain Hall..." thread where I made a poorly characterized  character, and soon descended to the lower boards with a game that used a DF map (quickly died) and a cooperative multiplayer game where each player controlled a single head of a hydra (eventually fell by the wayside as well).  I have mostly remained in the FG&RP and RtD boards since, though I am attempting to make a LP now (which I need some meatshields for.  It's the XCom link in my sig.).

Hullo Shobak! Oi, get yourself an avatar. If you don't have one you'll be a most forgettable forumer I can tell you from experience.
