    @Captain Tom Coughlin: Failte Nua Duine. Welcome aboard. Not sure if your name is just your name and you happen to be a captain... if so, thanks for your service, or you are a Giants fan, or it's a The Given Day reference, 1 of several others I can think of... Anyhow, we are glad you are here. I'm axcited about Episode VII as well. I have quite a presence in that forum, so if you need me, I am rather conspicuous. Check out all of our many topics & boards, get involved, and if you run into any problems, this thread is your tech support area.

    Thanks! I am not a real Captain. This was a screen name that I originally chose for a Star Trek board, so I used the title Captain as a play off that. I basically fused Star Trek with another of my favorite things, the NY Giants!

    Brilliant... I nailed it on my second guess. Well, go have fun and fall back in here if the need arises.

    "Hello, there." - Obi-Wan

    Hmm, you have chosen The Scream by Munch as avatar. You seem to have good taste...

    Thank you! It was meant to convey the frustration that the Giants cause me.

    Welcome Tom! :)

    You are a ST fan as well? Cool! I enjoyed most of the movies, too, just never really watched the tv show. Btw, there should be a thread about it as well, but I'm not sure where it can be found. Maybe you are more lucky and find it. ;)

    Enjoy your stay! :)

    Welcome, Cap'n! :p

    I hope you enjoy yourself here. I joined this past week and I already feel at home.

    What are you most interested in? Prequels, EU, Classic Trilogy?

    Hello PearlSaber, I suppose I should say welcome to you as well!

    As to what interests me, I would go with the movie Saga as a whole, including the upcoming ones, and The Clone Wars TV show.

    I don't really read Star Wars books, so I'm not well versed in the EU. I stick mainly to the onscreen stuff

    The one thing that is a bit overwhelming about this place is the shear size of it. There are threads that have literally thousands of responses.

    Yep, some are really large! But remember, if it's a social thread, you don't need to read all those posts. If you read the last two or three pages plus the introduction/first post, you've done everything that's needed to join the talks in there properly. :)

    Just a little advice, if your edit time hasn't run up already, it's better to use the edit function than posting a new post. If doing it too many times, you might get a PM (conversation) learning that it's called spam.

    Really, I wouldn't have thought that my post there would be considered spam.

    I will however make sure to keep that in mind and appreciate the heads up

    Welcome! Since you like Star Trek, I recommend checking out Community: Amph. It's a non-Star Wars zone, but we have a discussion about the new movie going. It's a lot of pages, but just read the last couple and you'll be caught up :)

    Thank you, I will check that out! Being that it is Super Bowl Sunday, I was wondering if there were any NFL theads active? I looked around but didn't see one.

    Don't worry too much, just keep it in mind. Sometimes it even makes sense to "double post", but I suggest to get the feel for the forum first, so you don't run into trouble. ;) :)

    SuperBowl? There is one active one. :)

    How I found them? Go to "Community" and then click on "Arena" on the top of that page (right under the name of that board). :)

    Yep, what Skiara said! I just linked to a particular sub-forum; there's much more to Community.

    I have a question, what exactly are points and how do you get them?
