First post redux Can't Post

Greetings my fellow TORnsibs!! How is everyone settling in to the new digs? Let us hope the transition continues to be a smooth one.

This move to the new boards happens to fall near my five year TORniversary. So in that spirit I am going to attempt to recreate my very first post from my feeble memory. Hear goes:

Subject: *Stands up in middle of room and clears throat*

Message: Hello, my name is Eärwen and I'm a lurkaholic! I realize the first step to recovery is admitting that you have a problem. Therefore I stand before you today to admit that I have lurked for nearly a year, and am finally ready to step out into the light. I will do my best to make amends for my lurking ways by posting both frequently and coherently. Thank you for your time. *Sits back down*

*************

I have suffered a few lurking relapses since that time, but overall I would say the 12 steps are working and my life has improved dramatically since joining the TORn AA (anti-anonymous) De-lurking program. Lurking no longer controls my life, and it's all thanks to the friendly intelligent TORnsibs who "sponsored" me and made me feel welcome and at home. A big Heart to you all as we enter this new chapter in the TORn saga!

Glad I'm not the only one, hehe [In reply to] Can't Post

And thanks for the kind words about my name. I have been surprised how many people have commented nicely about it. I always had this hidden anxiety that it was annoying the cr** out of people, and seriously considered changing it until the nice comments convinced me otherwise. I like yours too, btw, so unique!

I also have strong lurking tendencies, but I'm forcing myself to join and use the new boards right away. Thanks for giving us another reason to celebrate!

Re: [Eärwen Swan Maiden Of Alqualondë] First post redux [In reply to] Can't Post

That actually reads as something familiar to me. This makes me think I am crazy because how would I remember a post from a year ago? And yet . . .

If we live in trying times, we must be the ones who try. If the future is looking dark, we must be the ones who shine.

It's great! [In reply to] Can't Post

I mean, it's so long and detailed and very pretty! And I love how it stretches the board slightly... I think that's great. *grin*

Oh, thank you very much ^^ I came up with it way back when I was 13, and it stuck. :)

What great timing! When I discovered TORn, I think I only lurked for about 3 days - too long for me not to jump in with an opinion. Tongue

Re: [deej] I'm so glad you chose a recognizable nick! [In reply to] Can't Post

   Some of the suggestions people were making had me worried. I've been looking for you here, wondering what on earth you were going to be calling yourself! I'm so glad you chose the one you did!

Yes, happy TORNiversary... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't remember exactly when mine was so I don't celebrate it. Besides, I'm lousy at mathoms.
