Someone needs to do a eulogy for this thread, so I will do the honors.
An Ode to the Welcome Newbie Party
The Welcome Newbie Party has been a good place to go,
full of chocolate pools and wall graffiti,
merry and full of life,
and Trika's array of very strange pictures.
In its time here, this thread has seen many people come and go on their way around the Jedi Council Forums, a haven for those of us who reside in the WNU and can proudly call ourselves WNUbies. We have posted, laughed, cried, added a lot of emoticons and links, and otherwise did nothing but chat about how our day went or what we will be doing next Friday, if it is snowing or if it is blisteringly hot outside.
Although this thread will soon be retired, the new place will not have the old-thread smell and tracks of this place until its final days, when a new thread will be opened. Amenities aside, the thread has seen so mcuh that we salute it for hosting our ideas and our time in WNU, both current and long-absent posters alike.
So we pay respects to the thread that has been everything we want in a social thread; humor, angst, [hl=indigo]too many mark-up codes[/hl] . . . and don't forget the chocolate. By tomorrow, this place will be locked and no longer accessable, but we can always remember that it was here and that we left our mark on it.
And now, we head to the new thread . . . BOOYAH!
As for this thread getting locked, I plan on losing the keys at least once or twice before handing them back over to Skiara.
*waves goodbye to thread*
We'll get a new, upgraded chocolate pool in the new thread, right?
And what about a candy mountain?
I'll see you all this coming fall in the Big Rock Candy Mountains.
Not if I eat them first!
If you loose the keys just make sure Stone is locked in here, with me.
OMG THE NYA IS WATCHING JAPANESE TV!
So many questions and the truth is that I couldn't take a look at every corner of the new home, but they promised me a chocolate pool at least and it seems there are nice corners to talk in private and to hide keys. And if I didn't mix it up, there's a (not so) secret doorway to the pillow fight thread in planning.
So, thanks for the ode, Gunny.
Thanks for everything WNP-Thread!
Take care and rest well!
