Never used it (I'm more of a RPer) but judging on its name, click it and you can create a survey.

Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: BarkingLizards on February 27, 2013, 10:46:20 AM
Yes, a lot of people just make accounts, stay on for a few days and then never come back :/
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 10:47:42 AM
I would never do that! When i do something like this i tend to stick with it. :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: BarkingLizards on February 27, 2013, 10:51:00 AM
Well then that's good!  :D

And you like Uglies? I've never read it...but Fanna loves it. She should be on soon.

Leviathan is my favorite. :P

Just wandering aloud... I see that you guys have "hero member" under your names or above them and other people (like me) have "newbie" I was just wandering what those were or what they meant? I mean i understand mine I'm new so i understand why I'm called "newbie" :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Time Blitz on February 27, 2013, 10:57:07 AM
Well, it's basically a 'rank' depending on how many times you post. Because you havent posted a lot, you're a 'Newbie'
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 10:58:33 AM
And I've noticed its always u guys posting first. Is that why? :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: BarkingLizards on February 27, 2013, 11:01:00 AM
On other newbie posts? Cause we're nice and care about newbies :P
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:05:54 AM
hahaha. well i appreciate it when people are nice to me. Thank you for welcoming me by the way  ;D
   so if i wanted to i would be able to post on newbies posts too. But i may not till i get used to posting on stuff a lot better. :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:10:17 AM
Well that sounds like a good idea... i may just do that. :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Time Blitz on February 27, 2013, 11:12:02 AM
Or you could join one of my newbie-friendly RPs...they're great for racking up posts. Of course, I'm the armor fanatic, so a lot of my stuff are military related...
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:13:16 AM
Well i talk about it a whole entire day if i have to!  ;D
   Oh and how do you do the quoting thing? Is it that icon in the top right corner that says "quote"?
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Time Blitz on February 27, 2013, 11:17:23 AM
Haven't used that either! But probably.
Title: Re: Hi im neww!

Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:32:08 AM

Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:37:14 AM
Aww don't feel sad. Im not leaving.. and no one else is like umm lets see.. theres BarkingLizards , Time Blitz and many others. I am definitely not though! this is way too much fun! ;D
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:45:53 AM
Well i won't. i never get to talk about the uglies series to anyone because they've never ever read it so... i have this now so now i can talk about it all i want to and people will actually understand what I'm saying! ;D
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:50:32 AM
Hahaha! Kool and Awesome.. Im glad i have something in common with someone on here! Im always really shy at first on things like this!  :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 11:57:05 AM
Haha yea.. you've got to love the internet! Well sometimes anyway.. But I'm not really shy in real life but yet I'm not not shy so I'm kinda in between .
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 12:00:06 PM

Wait, what? I'm not what? Leaving? Hahaha, umm probably not.
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Time Blitz on February 27, 2013, 12:07:26 PM
Erm, yeah...one of the reasons I love the forum so much is because I have more in common with some people on here than I do with my actual classmates....but I hope that you never reach this very sad point  :P

And I was a little shy at first too....I'm a little shy in real life too.  But the beauty of the internet is that you don't have to be!!!  ;D

I've reached the sad point of having more in common with people on here than everyone else I know irl!
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 27, 2013, 12:08:37 PM

i think i may start to read the Leviathan series. I have read the Uglies series like four times already.  Is the Leviathan series as good as other people say it is?
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:18:59 AM
Hmmm i will say when I'm done reading it to see if your right or if Liz is right  ;D. We shall see . But since a lot of Uglies fans don't really like the leviathan series i may not either. :( but I'm still going to try it.
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:24:34 AM
well i have read the uglies series, most of so yesterday and the first book of midnighters. so yea :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:28:34 AM
Why don't you read for fun? if you don't mind me asking?
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:33:11 AM
Oh... the only things i really like to read is just books by Scott... Nothing else really interests me right now.. :D And for me. i have a lot of time to read since I'm only in middle school. ;D
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:35:50 AM
Sadly.... no :( but i really want too!! :)
Title: Re: Hi im neww!
Post by: Soph-la on February 28, 2013, 08:44:22 AM
