Hi. I signed up here only very recently having been browsing through some of the forums, appreciating the honest, intelligent and practical threads and realising there were many people like me. I wanted to join in.
That's great, Eli! People with varied interests are always welcome here. ADISC is a heck of a lot more than a diaper discussion site. We talk about all kinds of things -- politics, religion, mental health, video games, movies, news, gadgets... You name it. Welcome!
Hey! Here's a new game: think of anything at all you would like to talk about,
some video game, or computer issue?
Afghani-Pakistani diplomatic relations and trade agreements?
How do I become a regular or use a certain feature, like what does an icon mean?
How the heck does someone get to 6 rep in 14 posts, while still a newbie?
- And I will locate a thread that talks about it or find an expert who has the answers you seek or someone into chatting with you about 67 Mustangs, the care and maintenance of plastic pants, how the rep system works, good memes and bad memes, - whatever takes your fancy.
And I can even tell you how you yourself can locate the goodies hidden in out of the way spots on ADISC!!
And not only me, but anyone should feel encouraged to help out with this guy's queries: EVEN FELLOW-NEWBIES!!
Ha, I only just thought of checking back here to see if anyone said hi. Apologies for not saying thanks earlier! I was too wrapped up in discussing things that I've never had a place to discuss before. Then I noticed other people had got replies to their intro thread, checked my own and got a nice suprise.
Ellipsis - You got me paranoid for a sec there! In what way did I seem familiar? Is it just that a lot of new members joined around same time?
Racoon...hehe, like your post. I could challange your offer there though 'cos one of my latest interests has been swimming pool drains. I don't have a pool nor do I work with them, I just find them slightly frightening and therefore exciting. But, you might be pleased to know, I don't feel like talking about them just now!
Umm...*Doesn't want to appear stupid or unfriendly but doesn't get it - d'oh!* ...but I think a 'nice big one with a fake countdown timer' is potentially a very amusung idea...probably. Anyway, I'd better stop posting on this thread before I get more lovely friendly people welcoming me thinking I'm a newbie!! Nice to meet you all too though
