Welcome to the Jedi Council (JC) and FanForce (FF)! You've found the best place to start. As you know this place is called Welcome New Users (WNU). Here you can introduce yourself*, get a first feeling for posting and the community as well as to improve your posting skills and get help, if you have questions. The links below (index) will lead you to the right place. In addition, this thread can be used as a place to ask Question & get Answer (Q&A). But this shouldn't stop you from posting your question wherever it comes up. In the end you'll find some rules for the use of socks and for welcoming users. They are pretty simply, but might be handy to know. Enjoy your stay! *This thread is not for introducing. It would be too much. But you are free to post your own welcome thread in WNU or simply say 'hi' at the Newbie Welcome Party. That's more efficient. You'll see.

You'll find an helpful guideline. (Almost) last but not least, for those who enjoy forum archology: The last/old Index! Special Rules Socks: A second/third/fourth/etc. username of an existing main account is called a sock. If you like to use a sock, please, keep the following rules in your mind: - Don't have a conversation with yourself by using your main account and your sock(s). - Don't post with a sock while your main account or any of your socks is banned due to 'bad behaviour' - only allowed action: Sending a PM to one of the mods to speak about your ban privately. If you get a game-ban (a ban because of losing a game), you are allowed to post with your other usernames. - Don't start a welcome thread with your sock. It's unfair for the regulars who are thinking your sock is a brand new user and wanting to help him/her to give him/her a good start here. Welcoming new members: It's pretty cool that you like to welcome our newbies. Just keep in mind that posting the same text over and over again makes a new member feeling of being 'just another one' and less 'individually welcomed' as well as it's considered spam for upping ones post-count. So, if you need to decide, less welcomes but more individuality is a lot better.
