    [blockquote] Hello, [b][color=darkslateblue]Newbies[/b][/color]! :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 have certainly come to the right place! Here, in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=12113034]Newbie Adoptions [[b]V4.0[/b]][/link], we have a collection of extremely talented and caring [b][color=maroon]Oldbies[/b][/color] who are dedicated to helping you learn the ways of our beloved [link=http://boards.theforce.net/]Jedi Council[/link]. [face_love] Once you?ve been adopted, you?ll be able to direct any question about the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/]Jedi Council[/link], no matter how small or silly, to your [b][color=maroon]Adopter[/b][/color]. So, get adopted today! ;)

    [ul][li][i][u][b][color=blue]Newbie Adoption Co-ordinator[/b][/color][/i][/u]: If any adoption information changes or if problems arise, please notify me ([link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=341669][color=black][b]Morgaine[/b][/color][/link]) via [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=341669]Private Message[/link] as soon as possible, and I?ll be sure that it is fixed immediately. :) [/li]

    [li][i][u][b][color=maroon]Adopters/Oldbies[/b][/color][/i][/u]: To adopt a [b][color=darkslateblue]Newbie[/b][/color], you must be a registered [b]JCer[/b] for at least four months, have accumulated 500 posts minimum to your current username, and have a current ?[b][color=maroon]Adopters[/b][/color] Application? on file. Also, when applying to become an adopter, you can choose to specify any preferences ([b]i.e.[/b] gender, age, interests) that may aid you or the Coordinator in finding your ideal [b][color=darkslateblue]Adoptee[/b][/color]. [b][color=maroon]Oldbies[/b][/color] may only adopt one [b][color=darkslateblue]Newbie[/b][/color] at a time; requests by [b][color=maroon]Oldbies[/b][/color] to adopt another [b][color=darkslateblue]Newbie[/b][/color] will only be heard via [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=726885][i]Private Message[/i][/link] and granted with just cause. After you have adopted a [b][color=darkslateblue]Newbie[/b][/color], it is recommended (but not mandatory) that you both make notation of your relationship in your [b]signatures[/b] ([b]E.g.[/b]: ?[i]Adopter of [b][color=darkslateblue]User B[/b][/color][/i],? and ?[i]Adoptee of [b][color=maroon]User A[/b][/color][/i]?).

    All [b][color=maroon]Adopters[/b][/color] are asked to continue to post within the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10181][b]W[/b]elcome [b]N[/b]ew [b]U[/b]sers[/link] forum and [link=http://www.zaex.net/WNU/]Newbie Adoptions [[b]V4.0[/b]][/link] Thread to show your involvement in this program and the forum it resides within ([b]note:[/b] this may also help you locate your potential adoptee). All those whom have not posted within a period of two weeks in the forum and or thread will be removed from the list until further contact can be attempted. Lastly, [b][color=maroon]Adopters[/b][/color] are encouraged let their [b][color=darkslateblue]Adoptee[/b][/color] progress at their own pace and to wait until their [b][color=darkslateblue]Adoptee[/b][/color] feels that they are ready to move on and emerge from [i]?under your protective wing.?[/i] ;) [/li]

    [li][b][u][i][color=maroon]A step-to-step guide to becoming an Adopter:[/b][/u][/i][/color]

    1. Make sure you meet the qualifications needed to become an [b][color=maroon]Adopter[/b][/color].

    2. Express your desire to become an adopter either by posting on this topic ([b]i.e.[/b] ?I would like to become an [b][color=maroon]Adopter[/b][/color]! Sign me up please!?) or sending a PM to the Newbie Adoptions Co-ordinator ([b]i.e.[/b] ?I am sending you this PM because I would like to become an adopter.?)

    Great Job Strid, keep up the good work and Thanks for everything.


    Awww... [face_blush] Thanks, I figured i'd attempt to include those main three posts that MASTER_OBI-DAN originally had used on the main page, but never anywhere else. As so that any incoming Newbies would understand and know of all the places and information they may review to help them better. And much of this info is quite important even to the Oldbies :D .


    Hi, everyone! [face_happy] I just want to congratulate our newest [b][color=maroon]adopter[/b][/color]/[b][color=darkslateblue]adoptee[/b][/color] pairs! [image=http://members.shaw.ca/dan_hogan/Emoticons/Smileys/Woot.gif] Also, I?d like to personally thank all those [b][color=maroon]oldbies[/b][/color] that have recently volunteered. And I just want to remind everyone that we have some cute, cuddly [b][color=darkslateblue]newbies[/b][/color] just waiting to be adopted:

    I'd like to personally thank-you for standing up and volenteering, it takes a great commitment to give your self over, I am greatly appreciative in all that everyone has done to show not only their support as we begin anew. I will need of course the name of the forums to which you most frequently post at, and then you will be all set for the list! :D

    I could not make that decesion, I would highly suggest that you first PM him and make sure that he is intersted in being adopted by you or to make sure someone else hasn't already asked him to be their Adoptee ;) you know, as a saftely measure. Once you have found out for sure, have both him and yourself post here, and I will then add you to the listings :D . As you know I just need to be sure.

    Perhaps I should say that I'm kind of shy, and it's not in my nature to contact strange people and ask them to adopt me, so if you're thinking about adopting me, you'll have to send me a PM or something.

    And I'd prefer a female to adopt me. Just because I would feel more comfortable with a woman.

    Hey Strid, last thread i saw you posting 3 or 4 updates per page, which i could barely load on cable connection, maybe you should post an update every page or so?

    Jedi_Benji: "Hey Strid, last thread i saw you posting 3 or 4 updates per page, which i could barely load on cable connection, maybe you should post an update every page or so?"

    I must appologize, I try to do two updates a day, no more no less. One in the morning and one at Night. However, for me it would be harder to go through that many posts and notices posted by you (the members) in order that I may post your names into certian areas of this list correctly. I will try my best to be sure that it loads quickly, however I doubt its the amount of posts, but the amount of Codes in that opening post. And that I cannot fix without major alterations :( .
    Sorry....

    Great thread. Although I would rather have the old one to keep Master_Obi-Dan's spirit alive. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

    -Lord-Vader-: "Great thread. Although I would rather have the old one to keep Master_Obi-Dan's spirit alive. But you gotta do what you gotta do."

    Sadly yes, it was after I talked with [hl=dimgray]Morgaine[/hl] about opening this new thread that we both noticed the need to make a new one, one that didn't have MASTER_OBI-DAN's name as the opening post, so that it would not confuse any new members joining up with us.
    Besides I wanted to add in some great info that I felt needed to be returned to the listing. After all, its all directed towards our Adopters & even Adoptees. I am also looking into many new cool ideas, which will be shared later on as time allows ;) .

    I'm so glad to see the Newbie Adoptions in good hands, although I was getting ready to volunteer myself when I saw the old one wasting without Master Obi-Dan, although the right person has been chosen. :D Great job on this, Stridarious!

    Hey!!!!!

    I'll take anybody. Just give me a name and I'll volunteer my services. I actually sent a PM to Master_ObiDan a couple of days ago. Where is he? and why is he not the Newbie Adoption Coordinator anymore?


    Anyhoo, give me someone. 8-}



    Edit: Either I'm freaking tired or I'm just a freaking moron for not seeing the multiple posts above me. [face_blush]

    Captain_Sarcasm:MASTER_OBI-DAN has stepped down due to problems in RL and will be leaving the JC permenently. I know we're all sorry to hear this but there's nothing we can do.

    Strid:I don't think I qualify to be a adopter yet right? But once I do I promise that I will adopt ASAP.

    But one question: Don't you think that one update per page isn't enough? ?[face_plain]

    This thread grows very fast so that every or every second day will be another/new page...
