For new members to use to introduce themselves to everyone here. I've seen some "I'm new" threads or posts, and this could be a way to decrease excess clutter.

Allow me to be the first to welcome you here. =)

The Official Welcome to the Board Thread

Postby Obsidian » Wed Jul 15, 2009 11:24 pm

Ah, good idea DocWho.
I'd like to echo that welcome, and provide a quick introduction to get the ball rolling.
I'm Jason, one of the Lukis Brother who started this site back in '97. Of the three of us, I'm the one most involved in the creation/ongoings of this forum. I just finished Grad-school and will be starting my year long internship in CA at the end of August. Of course, I am very much a fan of Transformers.

Perhaps we could go with a quick question and answer to further introductions. Let's go with some of the pre-estabolished questions on our "about us" page.

Transformers fan since: The Beginning 1984
Year of Birth: 1981
Primary Residence: Gosh that's a tough one to answer these days
First Transformer Ever bought: Skywarp/Sunstreaker (same purchase)
First series ever paid attention to: G1 (fan of all)

Favorite TF Cartoon: TF Animated all the way
Favorite Comic: Armada, and the unfinished 3rd War Within.

One can also look here for this info on several of us admins.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
