    can i put myself up for adoption. I think i could use a little help navigating the boards. I'm used to VBulletin or other forum layouts so this one will take some getting used to. thanks.

    Okay, whoever's in charge of the roster here at the moment, I have now released my adoptee Lord_RJ into the boards to go off on his own. I'm sure he'll be fine! :D So I can now be put on the free oldbies list for Asia/Oceania. I frequent Literature and EU Community, mostly.

    Thanks. :)

    I fulfill the requiorments to be an adoptor... but I have one question that maybe somebody who spends more time in the book section of the JC could answer (cause I haven't found it anywhere else) Does the JC have a "book club"? If so, can you pm a link?

    Stridarious: I now also visit in the Fan Force (USA - Southwest) Phoenix Arizona forum. If you could update that onto the list, that would be nice.

    Thanks. :D

    Newbie Adoptions List:
    />
    Hello, newbies! :D Are you feeling a bit lost? Are you intimidated by the sheer size of the Jedi Council? Do you want to blend in quickly, make friends fast and avoid common rookie mistakes? Then you?ve certainly come to the right place! Here, in the Newbie Adoptions Thread, we have a collection of extremely talented and caring oldbies who are dedicated to helping you learn the ways of our beloved Jedi Council. [face_love] And once you?ve been adopted, you?ll be able to ask any question about the Jedi Council, no matter how small or silly you may think it is, to your adopter. So, come get adopted today! ;)

    • Newbie Adoption Co-ordinator: If any adoption information changes or if problems arise, please notify me (MASTER_OBI-DAN ) via PM as soon as possible. :)


    • Adopters/Oldbies: To adopt a Newbie, you must be a registered JCer for at least the last three months and you must have at least 400 posts to your name. Oldbies may only adopt one Newbie at a time; requests by Oldbies to adopt another Newbie will only be heard via Private Message and granted with just cause. After you have adopted a Newbie, it is recommended (but not mandatory) that you both make notation of your relationship in their signatures (E.g.: ?Adopter of User B,? and ?Adoptee of User A?). Lastly, adopters are encouraged let their adoptee progress at their own pace and to wait until their adoptee feels that they are ready to come move on and emerge from ?under your protective wing.?

    • Adoptees/Newbies: Newbies are encouraged to click on the names of free Oldbies and to look through their user profiles. Newbies are not restricted to selecting a free Oldbie from their continent or who shares their interests, but are encouraged to select any free Oldbie of their choice. If a Newbie finds a free Oldbie who they wish to be adopted by, they are welcome to send that Oldbie a ?Private Message.? Alternatively, if Newbies prefer, they can either wait for either an Oldbie to contact them or they can contact me via a ?Private Message? and I will pair them up with one of our extremely talented and caring Oldbies, who shares similar interests. ;)

    • Jedi_Learner: Is it a good change or a bad one? 8-} I just went about and changed the color schemes for the older list was still in the old banner scheme. And I know that usually the list flows along with the banner so I changed it. However, I am only updating the list to be sure that Dan is not overwhelmed upon return.

    I am not quite sure about this but everyone tells me that I need to "go get myself adopted." It seems like a good way to meet and get to know people so here I am.

    • Melt_The_Ice: It is a great way to not only get to meet new people, but also to become accustom to this new large area for which you may roam! :D . And trust me when I say do we have the greatest team of Oldbies just dying to adopt you ;)!
