    *waves* Hi, Oldbie here wishing to adopt. I'm in Europe and I specialise in the Fan Fiction, YJCC, Fan Force UK forums and the Fan Force General :)

    Master_Obi-Dan I didn't know you but I'm very aware of the hard work you put in here at the Newbie Adoptions. Best of luck for the future and you will be dearly missed... :) *hugs*

    *sigh* Today is a sad day for me...Good-bye Dan, I will miss you! Good luck with everything that you do in your future and most importantly, take care of yourself.

    So, does Strid take over the boards now? Or do we know that yet?

    Here?s a brand spanking new update! With some sad news?

    [hr]

    [ul][li]MASTER_OBI-DAN: In my heart you will always be the true Adoptions Coordinator, and noone not even myself could ever replace the hard work that you have shown to all here. Thank-you for your support and kindness when I was still that small unknowledgeable Newbie :) . Moreover, thank you for cheering me on to the end! BYE MASTER_OBI-DAN and may God richly bless you! :( As he has blessed us all already with your sweet presence! :_| *wipes his eyes* I am not playing I really am crying, I think I need a moment to recoup. *takes a deep breath* Okay I feel a little bit better? :( [/li][/ul][ul][li]All: As posted by MASTER_OBI-DAN he has stepped down from his current position as Coordinator of the Adoptions Program and of his position at his local FF, due to RL issues. It is with this information that I have been asked if I wish to step up as the New Adoptions Coordinator, and it is to this new calling that I gracefully accept this great honor. Although As I said above, no one could ever replace MASTER_OBI-DAN, nor will I ever try to. So with these things stated, I will now post the newly updated Listings.[/li][/ul]

    Hello, newbies! :D Are you feeling a bit lost? Are you intimidated by the sheer size of the [link=http://boards.theforce.net]Jedi Council[/link]? 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 [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=10253086]Newbie Adoptions Thread[/link], we have a collection of extremely talented and caring oldbies who are dedicated to helping you learn the ways of our beloved [link=http://boards.theforce.net]Jedi Council[/link].

    *bows head* I did not know MASTER_OBI-DAN but this thread was one of the majors factors in my registering. I know you will be missed and you did an excellent job on this thread. I'll pray for you. Take care MASTER_OBI-DAN and God bless.


    Uh.. question, Strid, do the newbies waiting to be adopted post their areas of interest here or would it be better to do so in their bio?

    Yes, I know, I'm not Strid. But no, you don't have to post the areas that you're interested in. Just look at the list of people waiting to adopt newbies, and check to see if any of them visit the places you like. :D

    EDIT:
    Oh yeah, if you find someone that has similar interests as you, you can even ask them to adopt you (you don't have to wait for someone to pick you).
