    I've no idea how someone "greets" a forum, but hi anyway.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Sokoya, Aug 24, 2016.

    Hi all. As the title suggests, I'm new to forums and unfamiliar with the etiquette, but I thought I ought to say hello.
    So... hello... forum. Hope you're well... for a forum that is.
    Well... this is awkward.
    Anyway, I'm 22 and, having just sent my first novel off to agents, I'm in dire need of something to take my mind off it for the next couple of months. What better way to take my mind off my writing, than to join a forum for writers to talk about their writing... Oh, wait... Damn.
    Ok, well at least it will give me something to do rather than staring listlessly at my phone all day and then running to hide under a table whenever I hear the email alert tone.

    Anyway, if you're reading this then I've probably wasted enough of your time already. So... happy foruming! Or whatever the hell it is you do here.

    I understand this so well. I'm not new to 'forums' but I'm new to this one and it seems different to me for some reason.

    Anyway, welcome. Like I said I'm new so I'm not sure how much weight my welcome carries but I just wanted to extend some understanding in your direction.

    Good luck & happy learning!

    Well, what you do is you take thirteen goats to stonehenge, and then start the traditional ritual.

    Anyway, welcome.

    Sooner or later, someone will come along and teach you the secret handshake.

    But seriously, how do you "greet" a forum? You fake it, just like we did.

    Welcome to the adventure you were not prepared for, Mr.Baggins. Though Black Beard is alright if you do not withhold your cache of rum. (If you do, then your butt will be getting a painful prod from his cutlass.):supergrin:

    Well good luck not Alice, only thing left is to give you one thing that will help you on your quest to save the kingdom of Hyrule:
