    It's not as uncommon as you think. There are, thankfully, other ways to stay cool. Like running fans, hanging out in places with AC, or sitting in a tub full of cold water.

    I'm asking that myself as well... just... I need certain things. :(
    (Sorry, missed your post earlier.)


    I was ill the last two days and couldn't get on the computer. :(

    The day before yesterday it rained a lot as well and mostly we are happy about it, since it hasn't really rained for 2 or 3 months. Just a few drops every now and then, but no real rain, so the famer started to water their fields themselves - and that's not usual in my area.

    But now the sun is shining again. :)

    Yikes, too sick to get online? That's pretty sick! I do hope you're feeling better, though. [:D]

    Yep, I do. Otherwise I would have either posted only "I'm ill, need to go off, green-time for me, bye" and not much more. Luckily I could ask another mod to do a quick check in here and in FFC, so it wasn't that this board wasn't unvisited. ;)

    But speaking about [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10022]FanForceCommunity (FFC)[/link], it became a second WNU currently. :D

    Hmm...that's a faulty piece of machinery you must have bought, Skiara. Were you able to return it?

    I would have loved to return it, but with my "luck" the returned object wouldn't have arrived in time (I'm leaving Germany for a few weeks in a few weeks and need it for that time). So I decided to keep it, since the other parts works and I'll send it in for reparature after that time outside of Germany.


    Edit: And feel free to say "hi" at the second WNU linked in my post above. :)

    *points in the direction where the person stands who suggested the new title*
    Not sure, if you'll get one, but there's the person who made the implication. :p


    Btw, I'm going to close this Party within the next few days (hopefully at this weekend) and start a new party, since this one has hit 10k posts some time ago already (usually I try to start a new thread when it hits 5 to 10k posts - for those who doesn't know). So I think it's time for a good bye party! :D

    Aw, it has to go already? :(

    And why isn't that emoticon available on the boards? o_O We always could use a party icon.

    Yep, I like to keep the threads (more or less) small, so new people don't hesitate to join as much as they would if they see a thread with 30k posts or so.


    Good question! I would love one as well.

    What?! The Party thread is ending?!

    No! My first few posts were all in here! Just when I'm trying to be more active in here.......

    There'll be a new one. I promise! :)

    And usually I link in the new one to the old one, so you can find it whenever you want. :)

    Do not cry, look forward to the new one! Let's see who makes the first post. ;) :D

    *lurks in the shadows* [face_mischief]


    Can you start it on the 5th of June? :D Then we can celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Welcome_New_Users/b10181/2972308/]first[/link] Newbie Party! :D

    That's a good idea! But why not starting an Anniversory Party? And having the next real party afterwards? I think the party is worth that extra thread! :)

    What do you think? (Everyone is asked. :) )


    Oh, Paddy... :)

    A ten-year anniversary? How many other Newbie Party threads were there before this one?

    I'll miss this thread no matter what...

    I think we should hold the Anniversary party over in the Teh-Mole Thread ;)

    (Sorry, I had to get one more shameless plug in before the party closed down :D )

    Either way is fine by me... *shrugs* Why not start an "anniversary party" and then re-name it after a while, when the whole ten-year thing has passed? Don't know if we really need to start another new one so soon afterwards, especially if Paddy here gets so emotional every time. ;)


    And Teh Mole can have its own anniversary when it's old enough. :D

    *smiles*

    Paddy, do you think you can stand an anniversory thread that'll be closed soon again? ;)


    Morgaine, you did start the first party, didn't you? Do you want to start the anniversory party? Otherwise I'll ask the newest member in here. I think it just fits, if that anni party gets started by the creator of the first Newbie WElcome Party or by the latest newbie who arrived in here (this thread). :)

    Oh, do you? What happened to the Jedi Code, then?

    There is no emotion, there is peace...
