HELLO!! I am a newbie, I registered in October and I have been coming to this site unsure of what to do and staring at the screen waiting for topic to come up that I knew something about. Well now I will tell you a little about myself: I go to school in New York, I'm in 9th grade, I participate in Speech and Debate, I'm part of our schools Drama club, and I'm on my schools soccer and volly ball teams. I enjoy reading also. I just finished THe Hobbit, and Now reading The Fellowship for a 2nd time. And I know Peregrin and Dolenbalion from school they are both my friends

Hey Estella! Glad you finally are getting around to posting. I hope you enjoy the City as much as Dole and I do. Now you won't get so lost when we start rambling about certain citizens.
And I suppose I should warn you about Mith and ZENITH. But I don't feel like it.
See ya around.

ZEN and Mith aren't bad though. They are misunderstood. I've said it a million times, but I say it again: I've been shot a thousand times, but look at me. I turned out just fine.

I dunno, it was people like Zenith who more or less scared me away from MT. There are a bunch of jerks with rods up their butts around here, but luckily, there are also many more nice and decent people. Just don't let the tightwads get to you.

Elanor Gamgee...relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy MT. If others post things you don't like, take it in stride. That is life. Don't leave the message board because there are a few of the 1000+ members who you don't get along with.

Welcome Éarn!! Sheesh ... Z and Mith seem to be given bad names here, however, I've liked them from the beginning, so you shan't hear me complain about them. Mith won my respect cuz he's a pyro, and a cool citizen of MT. Z's an oldbie, and I respect him, and find his tradition of shooting newbies fascinating.
Anyways, back to welcoming you:

If you should need anything (even just someone to send a PM to) go ahead and ask me!
EDITED FOR: that first pic didn't work, I'll have to try another.

*still hovering*

I'm not saying that EVERYBODY at MT is a jerk, not at all. I'm just saying that when a newbie comes in, and one of the first people they bump into tells them off, it creates something of a bad impression.
