^ Those happy.gif was alligned so beautifully... lol

@Larry-Chan Some comments are meant to be read, while some comments are meant to be binned. Furthermore, it is only bad comments about your favourite singers instead of insulting you... Just forget it...and remember, your record are still clean... tongue.gif laugh.gif

By the way, not the right thread to post in... ^.^
Welcome Armelle.

Hope you have fun, and like it here.

Like people have told you, The Rules are important for you to read.

I like your siggie. It is really cute. wink.gif

Anyways, have fun, and ask any questions, you can think of. smile.gif


@Larry-Chan - Sorry that you got bad comments. May I ask who left them? (if you do not mind me asking)

Btw your post was kind of spam. This thread is where you post an introduction. Tell us about your self. Your fav. stuff, how old you are, where you are from. etc. I guess just like a brief story about you.
Besides, I think you have already posted an intro here.
hey miracle , Ratzenheich FMA Super Fan , is a old member ... you welcomed him too .. laugh.gif !!!
@Larry-Chan - To avoid getting "bad comments," I think it is generally a good idea to stay away from making "flaming" posts, and stay polite to others on your posts. biggrin.gif
Also, reading other people's posts on the thread before making your post is a good idea, too. smile.gif

Nah...she's whining because she received bad comment about LP and Evanescence... not because of her attitude... You are a good girl Larry-Chan... wink.gif

-starting to off track-
Ratzenheich FMA Super fan
I'm quite an old member already. happy.gif Anyway thanks for the welcome, and for those who are new, it's nice having you here with us at the boards. We need new active members and we hope you participate occassionally in our forum. smile.gif

BTW, I just wanna ask the people here and any one who is new. I just want to make a survey and know if anyone else here has a long or weird or both name. I've been a bit shy to reveal my full name because it's long and some people find it weird. But here goes...

My full name is Alphonse Serafin Kyle M. Lopez. wacko.gif dry.gif

I wish I had a shorter name. It's annoying especially when I'm filling out forms and having my quarterly exams (they require us to write down our full names during quarterly exams).

Please tell me your full names if you dont mind. I just want to know how many people here have long, weird, multiple names.

Thanks a lot to those who answer me!


BTW, is it safe to give out your full name online?
WOW , Alphonse Serafin Kyle M. Lopez , thats certainly long ohmy.gif , mine is really short , Amol Mishra ( thats only 10 letters).

Anyways may be miracle made a mistake while adding the names biggrin.gif
Ratzenheich FMA Super fan
Thanks for replying. Wow! You've got a short name there. >_< You're probably having an easier time filling out forms. When I fill out forms that require me to shade a box with the corresponding letter, I always ask them what to do because my name never fits because there aren't enough boxes!!! sad.gif mellow.gif
Ratzenheich , ( i hope i can call you that ) , yea small name is good , mine is infact liked by many of friends and teachers too !

About the forms and application laugh.gif , do you even have enough blocks to fill in your name.

And I think the names thing can be discussed some place else.
Ahh , i think you can post about the names here!

lets not fill up this thread with junk biggrin.gif
@Ratzenheich FMA Super fan - I can understand your predicament, and your passion for discussing your real name, but please contain discussions of real names to name thread only.

And, no, I do not want to see us asking real names of the newcomers on this thread.
Any personal biographical information they tell us voluntarily without being asked is fine, but IMO, us asking their personal information is impolite. We should go by only what they give us freely.
Ratzenheich FMA Super fan
Oh sorry about that. Can you please transfer my message and the ones after that to the thread your referred me to. Thanks!
hi, my name is...well....just read it. anyhoo. i wanna get my name changed to Shuriken Specialist. but the mods are too lazy to do anything about it. j/k mods. ph34r.gif tongue.gif anyway, i hope to have fun on here!

Hi SHITHEAD laugh.gif , Welcome to the Board ! biggrin.gif

I think it would be wise to read the Forum Rules first and then The Beginnerīs Guide to Forum Decorum, these would guide you through the posting process here !

I'll explain the set up of the site to you , I hope you can find this handy to browse through it ....

This is the Forum Home , as you can see the site has been divided into 3 posting section and a general statistic section.

The posting sections contain Subforums for General Discussion , where you will find the General Manga , General Anime , General Music , General Game , and other general threads.

Basically this Subforum has been dedicated only to the Threads NOT related to FMA~

The Full Metal Alchemist Discussion Subforums , include ONLY threads and Sub-sub forums related to FMA !
We have the Character Discussion, Full Metal Alchemist Anime, Full Metal Alchemist Manga, and much more ....... !

The third section that of the Site Support where you can post your Comments and Questions or just post a request .... !

You wanted you name changed right ?
Then I suggest you go to the Change Display Name thread !
I'm sure the Mods will attend to you problem with speed !

If you have any questions regarding any thing feel free to post them here or at the Questions
thread. You should also see the Frequently Asked Questions, And Answers For Them thread , cos many people tend to have the same questions when they are new ... biggrin.gif

Hope you have a nice time....

Happy posting ! biggrin.gif
@....HEAD - As Amol has kindly posted, I recommend you post on Board Id change thread, get your name changed, then come back and post better introduction again, in case you'd like to have better "fresh start" on our board. smile.gif



@Ratzenheich FMA Super fan - No way I'm moving any more of your posts from here, or from anywhere for that matter, to the "name" thread again, after already moving more than 30 plus posts to the "name" thread because of your spam posting on other thread!! laugh.gif
(I just delete it, and any related posts on this thread. XDD)
BTW, I don't recommend you'd try to start up another "name" discussions on anywhere again, except on the name thread. You could get more than a verbal warning next time. smile.gif


ETA: Today. Replying to posts below. ^^
@Ratzenheich FMA Super fan - Yap, that's my specialty. biggrin.gif (insert evil laugh here laugh.gif )
The thing is, I'm not mad at you personally. From what I see, you seem like a good person. biggrin.gif But, I'd like you to know that persistent Spamming is regarded as an offense on our board, so that you can avoid getting in trouble in the future from doing that, since, IMO, I do see some tendency to spam in your postings. smile.gif
BTW, I agree with you, and it is sad that many of the new people don't post beyond few posts. I'd like to see them participate in more postings on our board also. sad.gif

@Kenji - Are you saying the poster has been suspended (again?? huh.gif ) after he/she had made his/her last post yesterday on this thread?? Wow. blink.gif
Ratzenheich FMA Super fan
It's scary that Tombow can remain in a generally infuriated mood and still say it in a nice way with so many smilies. ph34r.gif

And it's kinda sad, there are a number of people joining the forums but none of them seem to post. I noticed most of the new members' post counts don't go past ten.
