Welcome, Oerba dia Vanille! You do choose the strangest usernames! Very Happy

Happy to have you here! Nice avatar!

I split the thread from "CoS is closing down", so you're the first one to have her welcome message here. very happy

Hey, that's cool!

My name here is a character from Final Fantasy XIII (that's her in my avatar super grin ), and my CoS username was from the TV show Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps- it's a made up word meaning the warm fuzzy feeling you get in your tummy when you're in love. And I spelled it wrong, it's meant to have another L in it somewhere.

A bit more about me- I'm 27, I'm from Wales in the UK. I'm interested in reading, writing, knitting and watching TV. I like to walk when the weather's fine, but I actually prefer cold weather. I live with my boyfriend and have done for the past eight years.

I hope to enjoy using this site- I've seen some great threads I'd like to get involved in. What's your policy on bumping old threads?

Glad to hear it, looking forward to your input. Very Happy

You may post a response in any thread you have an interest in*, it'll revive it and bump it up to the top of the page. Go ahead and have fun!

* Even those that are archived, but then you'd better make a copy and paste of whatever you want to respond to, then start a new thread in one of the active subforums.

Excellent! I only ask because I am a member of manymany forums, and they all have different rules- some prefer to bump ancient threads than make a new one, others prefer you to make a new one than bump something that hasn't been posted in for six years...I like to get that out in the open within a new website, cos I always ended up doing it wrong!

No problem here. We're a very laid-back site. Apart from numerous accidental bans (including my banning myself a couple of times, LOL), only one person has been actually barred from AV, and this because he really crossed the line, using the "c" and "f" words written out in full during an argument. Other than that, the worst that can happen to a member is being sent to the War Room or committed to the Void (the latter is not visible to members, only to staff).

Anyway, as long as everybody's polite, stays away from profanities, and don't stray too far and too often off-topic, respect each other's pov's, you're OK here. Thread logistics per se is pretty flexible. If we discuss it between Mods, it's in the Admins Lounge, which is not visible to the rest of you. So, within the parameters set above, feel free to post, or respond to posts, whenever and wherever you wish. Very Happy

Happy chatting!

Welcome to AV, Oerba dia Vanille! I remember you from CoS, I always found your username over there intriguing, and impossible to remember, let alone spell right! bleh

I was Alien_Visitor over there. I have the rare distinction of having been banned and reinstated twice, until the last time, when there was a blanket ban of what was mostly AV Vietnamese members and their significant others. But that's ancient history.

Please jump in and join the debates, you can see they cover a good many subjects and topics. Discussion can be, um, lively at times, but it's all in good fun and friendship - except when you end up in the War Room. A stroll through there can be quite entertaining. super grin

Looking forward to reading your posts and opinions. Very Happy

Hellooooooo Arry!

I can't get into your site my three browsers won't let me in so it could be the firewall on my ISP thingy but it's great to hear from you..

Last night Miss (just turned) Ten, Master Eight and I sat up most of the night watching the first two Harry Potter movies.... It was daylight when we finally got to bed...LOL But it is school holidays after all....
