    Well...I was helping Tevase with fanfics back then. Just that though :p

    I'm open on this front though.

    @Lord_kimo1: You have amassed 12 posts in 5 years...? [face_hypnotized]

    I was looking to see why an 09er would need adoption. You need to post more. This place is life fulfilling. By 'life fulfulling' I mean it will successfully fulfill killing your social life...

    @Bazinga'd, have you found another master? :)

    Congrats, Tevase and T-65! :D
    You know how it works, right? But anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM. :)

    Kimo, I was wondering the same, but I think 12 posts within five years explains it as well. ;) Have you contacted one of the listed oldbies on the first page already? That would be the best and easiest way to find a master. :)

    And of course, I've added you all to the first page. :)

    Thanks for the PM, Bazinga! :) That explains everything. :)

    Speaking about killing, Kimo, have you taken a look at Teh Mole? It's a game with wonderful fanciful deaths. :p

    You will get better! You will! For sure! :D
    When you get an answer from the oldbies, please, let me know, so I can add you as a team to the first page. :)

    And for the end of this post, an advice, @Lord_kimo1, multiple posts or double posts get often counted as 'spamming'. To avoid this and having all quotes as well, you simply need to click "reply" at every post you want to quote. It'll list them in one post automatically. Test it. :)

    Mr. Chewgumma-

    As much as I admire you, your services as a mentor are no longer required. I have adopted myself. ;)

    I was exiled from here for six years for unsavory, delinquent behavior and I still have managed to unload over 13,000 posts on my *second* account since 2000. Once you get going, don't stop. The interwebz needs our contributions.

    Hello :) I've just recent we joined the ForceNet and I would love to be adopted. This looks like a wonderfully place full of Star Wars fans like myself. I can't wait to start learning. :D

    We or I just joined? ;)

    You're right, this is a great place for SW and you'll discover something new every day (for a long time I bet). :)

    The best way is to contact one of the oldbies yourself. Will you do this? It's the fastest way as well. :)

    Nevertheless I've listed you at the first page, but without you going ahead asking one of them, it takes a lot longer. Just a little advice this is. :)

    Basically all from the list on the first page
    @Adalia-Durron, she's from Australia and an RSA (Regional Support Admin). She knows a lot about FanForce and is a nice girl.
    @Jedi Gunny
    , he's an old member. Formelly known as JediGunShip, but got always called gunny. Nice guy as well.
    @NYCitygurl, she's the "icon queen" as well as the "games queen", since she used to manage those areas. In case you have any questions about these fields, she'll be happy to answer them. Nice girl as well.
    @thesevegetable, he was known under a different username and he's here for about three years already - even if his current main username says different. So he knows a lot about the boards, too. Oh, and he's a nice guy as well, of course. ;)

    But maybe these four regular user like to add something as well. That's why I have tagged you all. Feel free to post about yoursefl of send Sparkle a PM. :)

    I hope this helps a little bit. :)

    What areas are you most interested in? Addie and veg are into the books, Gunny likes the movies, and I hang out in fan fiction.

    I really don't know how this Adoption thing works but I've talked with JediGalaxySparkle and we've agreed for me to Adopt her :)

    @JediMaster_1977, it's pretty easy. You are now a team (master & padawan) for the next few weeks or until one of you decide that Sparkle is ready to fly alone and maybe getting her own padawan. During these weeks, it's like an apprenticeship: Some parts you walk through alone, some parts you help her (like in pointing out how or where to post what, hinting at rules, showing her hidden but wonderful places (aka boards/threads) and answering question whenever she has one). In case, she does really well and there's almost nothing you can do, you can join the same games, discussions etc, making her familiar with the whole forum. I hope this helps. :) And, of course, whenever you have a question, you're welcome to ask me. :)

    Edit: I'll add you as a team to the first page in one or two minutes. :)

    @JediMaster_1977, I've send her a PM, but I worry that she won't come back. It looks like that. Sorry. :(

    But this can happen and the important thing is to go on. Maybe your next padawan won't disappear. So, shall I add you to the list of free oldbies again? :)
