Title: Road Apples (newbies) read this !
Post by: cigar joe on October 10, 2007, 08:18:11 AM
Welcome, to the board

Try and read all the posts on previous topics (they can be very fun, interesting, informative and they may address some thing that may interest you)  and don't be afraid to post in a topic that gives you the warning that it hasn't been active for 120 days, some of our best threads are burried beneath a lot of nonsensical posts.

Funny thing, I was just sniffing through some old (excellent) topics.

This is exactly what I'm doing. But the process will take a long time, maybe a year or two. Of course I could read them in a couple of weeks if I wanted to but reading old topics here is not my fulltime job.

PS. Mods have to make this thread sticky or otherwise the newbies are gonna have to read through all the old topics before they find this (what a paradox!).

I find it kind of sad that so many people register, and so few actually post.

I wish there wasn't a warning when I post a reply to a hot topic. For example, when I posted on the Audrey Hepburn thread, I had to click "post" like fives times to get my reply posted.

Be thankful for that.

Be thankful for that.
When I first read that, my initial reaction was ???, but thinking about it... well just look at Imdb. Scary.

WHERE WAS JESUS NOW ?

It's just that you guys are all so funny. It's a hard act to follow!

Fascinating board lingo. Why are newbies called "road apples?" Is it because we are horse poo? Or is it that a reference to the 1970s band --in this case meaning one time posters?

Am I the only one who is curious?

An appropriate appellation, eh? Do the veterans enjoy an equally amusing epithet?

So how do you earn your stars around here? Are there feats of strength? I hope I don’t have to take a Dollars quiz. I’m miserable at movie trivia.

As you can see, it was aproximately nine months ago when CJ first came up with the idea to make our position names Western related. He also came up with the term "road apple". I don't think it is too harsh ;)

Not at all. I think it’s great. (Actually reading down that thread, it gets pretty funny.) This board must have been around along time to have so many bounty hunters. Do y’all ever fight? Or do you get along beautifully, like brothers?

Why, do brothers not fight? I never had any brothers. I assume they play nice.

That's right, we have fights on here but mostly they are brotherly fights. Usually they don't get personal. However, I remember a few pretty ugly ones... :P

Oh wow, that was educational. Are you sure you want to post that on a “Road Apples ... read this” thread, lol? Actually y’all are nothing like IMDB. I half expected a big group hug at the end.

Thanks. I knew there were more girls because all the cool handles were taken. There's not a lot of Western heroines. I thought about being "Keegsquaw" or something ridiculous, just to get a laugh.  >:D

Well, I simply went with my nickname and didn't care about the heroines... I'm creating a new one. ;D But, seriously,  you're right, there are more of us.
