    Hello All

    I am letting my nOOb go as she is never ever on line and has seemed to have vanished.

    So I am free once again to adopt!

    Still looking for an adoptee. If you would like help around the boards, with markup codes, etc., just send me a pm.

    :D Thank-You for all these warm welcomes and extended hands of help, I feel very flattered and honored to serve you in this aspect, and I would greatly appreciate any ideas, as I am pondering having a new thread created, as so that this one may stay as is, you know to keep the memory fresh of our old and close friend, MASTER_OBI-DAN. A man whom became a mentor and a well known being to all. Not only that, but I wish to add a few things that are needed in this new Adoptions Thread, now under my Coordination. So please tell me your ideas, as it is also your thread too ;) .

    Hey Strid, you will do a great job.

    Sorry to see you go Dan, you have done so much. My nest wishes for you.

    Strid, you ever need any help just let me know, or if I can do anything for you. I am always around and always adopting these fine nOObs, and always makingsire you are busy! LOL

    Edit: I have also asked Melt_the_Ice if he would be my new adoptie!

    Dear me Strid, I turn my back for one minute and look what's happened to you. :)

    Congratulations and commiserations on your new position, your going to be hard pressed to keep up with all those mark-ups! (faints)

    Just dropping in to say that my adoptee Elfsheen has matured far quicker then her adopter, and could probably teach me a thing or two now a days. :p

    She's carved out a solid niche away from FanFiction, and looking at that long list of newbies needing an adopter, I think I'm able to take on a new youngling to ground in these expansive forums of ours.

    I'll send a PM to Elfsheen and try and convince her to become an adopter as well. We seemingly need as many as we can get!

    Update!


    • Protege-of-Thrawn: I know scary ain't it 8-} ? However I know that this is my true calling because I enjoy coding so much, this is a great way to also meet many great people. I can truely say that MASTER_OBI-DAN loved everyone here with a passion as I do.
      Anyhow, I will be sure to add you and your Adoptee (Only if Elfsheen agrees :D ) to the list of avaliable Oldbies ;) .
    • Aina: Welcome, I added your name to the list. Now there is no need to be shy, as you can see, we are all one family of posters here, both young and old, and your adoption means the world to us :) .
    • scuiggefest: Yep you've been on the list for sometime now 8-} .
    • V Wing Fighter Pilot: Sounds cool to me! :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 (Stridarious) 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 [co

    MASTER_OBI-DAN... :( I'm so sorry to see you go. The little I know of you has made such an impact on my SW experience here at the JC. :cool: Your adoption programme has been great and I'm sure everyone echoes these sentiments. :)

    Thank you for all the hard work you've put in...it's all that work that has made the welcome forum the great place it is. :D

    I hope and pray that things work out for the best with regard to your real life situation. I pray the Lord will guide you in every decision you make. :)

    Yes, you are leaving us in very capable hands...Strid is doing a great job and Morgaine is a rock of support! ;) She's also my adopter...so she's way cool! [face_mischief]

    All the best and God choicest blessings to you Dan,

    Hugs [face_love]

    "WarmasterDan: I?d have to ask you to contact Laynel first and get her stated permission before I can add you both to the listings. Other then that your adoption would be clear."

    Permission has been given. :D
    Thanks. :)

    Strid, what Artemis is saying is there used to be a list of people that were almost able to be adopters. She is asking if you wanted to make that list again.

    Oh and Melt_The_Ice has accepted my offer to adopt him.

    So we are the new tag team around here! watch out!


    How many does this make? I lost count! lol

    I'm not Stridarious ( :p) but I'd say no. If you want to adopt a newbie, go ahead and do so. :) He can dircetly add you to the list of Oldbie/Newbie Pairs then. ;)

    Well, my old adoptee seemed to be a success. And, he seems to know the boards quite well now.

    If any other newbies need to be adopted, I'm free to adopt once again. :)

    • I for one second that, I believe that is the reason as why MASTER_OBI-DAN left it from the list to begin with, especially since the fact that it may create many problems to where people begin this competition, and perhaps spam in order to raise their post counts to be apart of the Oldbie list :( .



    NOTICE:
    All Adopters and Adoptees alike, I am shutting this thread down as to open Version 4.0 in a couple of hours, please bare with me. If there is anything of importance that you need to post or discuss, and the new thread is not up when your logged on, then please PM me and I will answer you as quick as I can ;) ./>
