I'm glad you decide to start posting in our forums!!

Hope to see your posts on Greed and all your fav FMA characters in FMA character discussion (both FMA manga and anime) forum, and about your thoughts on FMA anime in FMA Anime forum, or about your favorite episode in FMA Anime AA sub-forum!!


@GreedA - We have threads for "DBZ," "Naruto," "Inuyasha," "Bleach," "Trinity Blood," "Ghost in the Shell," "Yu Yu Hakusho," "Case Closed," and much more in our General (as in, non-FMA) Anime froum, and General Manga forum, and much more!! You can find the list of links for your fav anime/manga threads on Anime threads directory and Manga thresds directory.


@TOXIN13 - To open a new topic, you go to the forum where it's appropriate for that topic, then click on NEWTOPIC button. Then you fill in Thread Title, and if you like, Thread sub-title also. Then you fill in the first post, and click on Post New Topic at the bottom of the page.
(But, currently, if you're using Internet Explorer you can't open a thread. Please read Can't use ADDREPLY button? thread for the explanation.)
Also, make sure to check around the forums before you open a new thread to see if there is already an existing thread for that same topic or for the similar discussions. If there is, then you are supposed to add your post to the existing thread, instead of opening another thread, no matter how old the thread is. If you add your post, the thread will come up to the top of page. smile.gif

It's a frickin' spambot.

See, this is why we shouldn't have a welcoming committee.

@Abstruse Eulogy - I know. It was obvious, seeing his/her sig.
That's why I didn't go for my usual welcome post. That was extremely short for my posts here.
You may not notice, but usually my other welcome posts are far more accommodating.
But for this one, I basically just said "Please post your specific question here," knowing quite possibly he/she wouldn't. smile.gif

However, this is the "welcome" thread where new people will come to say "hi."
And, making posts such as "You frickin' spambot, DIE!!!!!" on this thread would disrupt the flow of the welcoming, but if I post something that would resemble my regular welcome post, it would suffice, and new people who would come here would not even notice there was a spambot, and we can go on with our usual welcoming business. smile.gif

So instead of deleting the post and maybe banning the bot you just humoured it?

Well whatever, hello GreyWolf.

@Popo - I would have gone "deleting the post and banning the bot" stuff, the second this bot poster would have changed his/her tune, and turned into the usual "bot" post. smile.gif
But, until then, I don't mind answering to his/her "hi" that was posted with a polite manner, with my polite answer post. IMO, it would be far more problematic if I start "killing" newcomers here based on my suspicions, like you are suggesting to do. I would rather wait till I have more concrete evidence, or in this case, him/her starts posting more "definitive" spambot posts.

You have entirely too much faith in spambot kind rolleyes.gif

Why not just admit a f*!@-up?

You have entirely too much faith in spambot kind rolleyes.gif

Well, this spambot is gone, isn't it? He/she did not come back. So, it worked out, IMO. smile.gif
(And, if he/she didn't go away, and would come back with more "obvious" spambot posts, then I'd have killed him/her then and there, so either way this would have worked out, IMO.)

Personally, I won't turn into an Instant Executioner and terminate a new member who comes here and posting "hi" just because "I" think "he/she looks like an obvious sapmbot poster to me..."
Even when I get a strong suspicion, like I had for this poster, I feel I should wait for the concrete evidence before I exercise my fearsome Mod power that's entrusted with me, and terminate any member. In this case, I would rather wait for he/she to start making more "definitive" spambot posts before "killing" this new member. IMO, I think we can afford to wait that much.
And meantime, as I said, I will avoid making posts such as "You frickin' spambot, DIE!!!!!" on this thread, and rather, post something that would resemble my regular welcome post that would suffice, so that new people who would come here would not even notice, and we can go on with our usual welcoming business. That's how I do here, and I hope you guys don't mind. smile.gif

BTW, if you would like to discuss our responses and tactics to the spambots, maybe opening a thread in our Admin/staff forum, and continue this there, and we move this out of Newcomers thread? Please? smile.gif (And, Popo, thanks for your input. smile.gif )

It's gone because I banhammered it.

Hey, I'm new. Very new. To FMA and this site. It's kinda confusing. o.o

Uhm, so yeah I am newly introduced to Fullmetal and I'm only on episode 22. But about me.

I'm from the good 'ol Midwest USA. Yay.

I love anime, drawing, and music. And FMA!!!

:]
Ceveri
Oy. I don't really know if I'm considered 'new' or not but...

Yeah. I joined in 2005. I've been a Hagaren fan since 2004. I pretty much totally forgot I had signed up here and I didn't become active on this site until very recently. So... I'm new in an odd sense of the word?

@ Ceveri- That's a pretty good question. You haven't posted much, but you have signed up ages ago so... Yes and no, but I don't think that it's a big deal IF you are considered " new". It's not going to last long so don't worry about it. happy.gif
