    Hi everyone, I'm Will. I'm 22, from Niagara Falls ON Canada. I am not a student of anything formally, I have my high school diploma, and a semester of community college, dropped out due to financial problems.

    I have no long-term goals at the moment, just trying to find something that interests me enough to dedicate my future years to. I won't be posting much on this site since I have little-to-no knowledge about every subject here, but I will be reading alot , looking for the words of wisdom that will lead me to something fullfilling.

    On another note, will i be ridiculed for asking extremely basic questions?

    Welcome Will!

    Not by anyone that matters. Your questions will be more than welcome! Just remember not to take anything said on any forum too personally. If you want to know something, just ask. There are many members that love explaining stuff to others. We have sections for nearly everything, even a place where you can discuss any of your own ideas. I am sure you'll have a good time!


    Disclaimer: I do not declare myself to be an expert on ANY subject. If I state something as fact that is obviously wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me. I welcome such corrections in an attempt to be as truthful and accurate as possible.

    Nope, people only get ridiculed when they behave like arrogant pin heads.

    The arrogant pin-heads might try to make you look foolish by asking simple questions because they suffer from bloated ego's.

    Still bloated egos are easy to pop by just poking them and ultimately their reactions ridicule themselves.

    You don't sound like a pin head to me anyway, look forward to chatting

    No you won't be ridiculed. You'll just be publicly humiliated and all your previous posts will be deleted, then you will be temporarily suspended until the moderator sees fit to bring you back, and even then, when you DO come back, your rank will never go up, instead it will always bear the name "Certified Grade-A Nimrod".


    So, by all means, don't hesitate to ask whatever questions you may have.

    By the way, I'm Tritai. Nice to meet you Will. Enjoy the forum!

    LoL

    A SOH how refreshing

    Well as much as some of us love to loathe the Mods when they are having a go at us (usually for good reason tho )

    They aint all bad, and they are fair, people only wind up humiliating themselves in the end anyway.
    They don't delete your old posts if they temporarily suspend you, but that means you can't either lol.
    And your rank stays the same if you're temporarily suspended.
    If they do ban you completely and you want to come back, then yes you have to start again with a new identity and start again with rank.

    I know this because I have been banned several times, been temporarily suspended a couple of times, and even had my I.P banned temporarily lol.
    And received a couple of cyber bum slaps from several of the moderators, which was very nice thank you very much.
    Why do I come back? Because I've learned a lot of stuff from here,(especially about human behaviour!) read some interesting discussions and people often make me laugh and I have made some very nice friends here too.
    But I'm a good girl now, well I'm trying

    Nice to meet you

    If you don't know what something is Tritai, just Google it.

    Type in:

    SOH def.
    SOH Urban dictionary.
    What does SOH mean?

    Believe me people have asked that question lots of times already and the answer will be out there. I only started to do this recently. Its called 'self help'. I used to rely on everyone else to help me out with all sorts and with all definitions I did not know. Since then I have learned that I myself, are completley alone... Knowing that. life is much easier.

    Type in on Google: SOH Urban dictionary. Sometimes we can behave not the way we intend to...


    Oh and welcome Will. Glad to have you onboard!

    I wasn't being sarcastic or anything, or trying to be an indifferent arsehole I am genuinley serious. Self help, not a lot of people know it. You are still very young so you won't know the adult world yet, which is actually less adult than a childs but whatever... :?

    Watch it, buster. I have officially entered teendom and do not consider myself "very young". In fact, I consider myself to be at the peak of enlightenmnet: not as stupid as an adult, and yet not as impractical as a child. So there. 8)

    Just kidding.

    Sorry, will, I've (singlehandedly?) destroyed the purpose of your thread. Once again, nice meeting you, and I'm sorry for deviating from the original post's intention.

    SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO, STEPHEN? GOD!
