    Well Stridarious if you want me to come to the "coded side" you must first introduce me to it and the powers that it holds for me. ;)

    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

    Heres a newer update!


    • Qui-Gina-Jinn: I am terribly sorry about that, your name is on the list now :D .
    • artemis_fowl: I believe Jezebel_Jedi nailed that one right on the head :) . I hope her knowledge has helped you immensely, as I would have to agree with her ;) .
    • Monkey_jedi: You know what, after viewing this incident further, I have become confused myself 8-} . I will leave your name up on this update, however, after I speak with Morgaine about this, and depending on her reply or answer will solve both our confusion! 8-}

    • Rogue-13: Welcome, I'll add you to the list right now :D .
    • Note: I (Stridarious) am taking over for MASTER_OBI-DAN temporarily, while he is away, at the discretion of the WNU Manager Morgaine . So any and all questions whether big nor small are to be PMed to me, until further notice.

    Hi, everyone! :D I always hate long-winded, drawn-out goodbyes, so let?s get down to brass tacks. In the last couple of hours, some unfortunate things have taken place in my RL, and as such, I will be stepping down as the Adoption Co-ordinator (effective immediately) and leaving the JC permanently.

    At this point, I totally want to thank Morgaine (our fearless and tireless leader) and all of the oldbies of the Welcome New Users forum. This is, by far, the best forum at the JC and that is because of you - the oldbies - and the positive/caring atmosphere that you foster for all the wide-eyed, adorable newbies that venture here. ;)

    In terms of the Newbie Adoption Program, I want to especially thank Stridarious for picking up the slack in my recent absence; you?ve done an admirable job, my friend. ;) And in terms of the Program?s future, I leave that solely to the wise discretion of Morgaine; because ?in Morgaine we trust.? ;)

    Take care, everyone. :)

    Yours truly,
    Dan
