    Well, if the thread becomes a classic, we will be someday :)

    And afterall, "In the country of the blind, oneeye is king", so we might still be able to help some!
    (okay, should have warned in advance, direct translation of Dutch proverb, could be horribly wrong, perhaps there is a real saying for it, but whatever).

    Well I have a question...


    Is there anyplace to post fan fiction that doesn't have to do with Star Wars?

    Having been big into fan fiction for a long time, I am sorry to say no. The JC fan fic boards are simply for Star Wars stories, but you can always go to a free site like FanFiction.netand join there. FF.n is really great, they even let you post original stories.

    Hope that helps.

    Here's a question! What does it really mean when you're a newbie being 'watched' but not approached? I figure it's the obvious - that someone is observing me to see who I am by the words I post. Does this mean if they decide I'm not a complete lunatic, they'll say 'hiya'? Should I go ahead and say 'hi' to my watchers or let them watch or not watch in peace? What's the etiquette here? I'll just have a [face_coffee] (cup of ginger tea) while I [face_thinking] and wait for guidance from some Siths and Jedis.

    I've never been "watched." I don't really get what you mean by "watched." Who would be observing you?



    time for the J_D call...

    Being "watched" is not really keeping an eye out on someone. It is usually for people you correspond with frequently so you can click their name on the drop down list in the PM window when you want to PM them rather than typing it out. This can be very useful for PMing people like the former JCC Mod Dashy McUnderscore (real username: -_-_-_-_-_-) as a lot of people could screw the name up.


    It is also a nice way to say: "You're cool and I consider you a friend."
