Hello!

*Walks up and looks around, appears rather nervous*

Greetings everyone! I'm new around here and just now decided that it might be nice to introduce myself.

I've been watching Big O since the first episode aired on AS, I also have every episode on tape and I'm in the process of buying them all on DVD, because having a good number of VHS tapes laying around tends to clutter up my basement. Besides I prefer DVD's any day.

I really love this anime! It's one of my all time favorites and I'm glad I stumbled upon this site too. My favorite character is Dorothy and Roger is a close second.

All right I'll shut up now before I start rambling, so once again, hello!

Greetings, Serenity Wayneright, and welcome to our happy domes! Here's an empty sack in case you come across some memories you want to take with you.

Interested in fan works? Try a serving of Meeting Norman by the inimitable A Clockwork Tomato, one of many interesting stories and pictures in Nightingale forum.

Smith Mansion is your source of analysis and creative guesswork about the show itself.

Ailesberry has tons of info on other anime and manga.

Speakeasy is the home of off-Big O posts and birthday wishes.

Finally, JFK Mark is the place to discuss topics about the boards. There are lively continuing threads on avatars and banners.

Hope to see you around the fora!

Cheers,
Pygmalion

Hello LillyRose. I'm Wienberg*, Paradigm's "forum diplomat". I'll explain that later.

First of all, I'd like to welcome you to Paradigm. You'll find this place quite wonderful. There are many intellectual and kind people ready to help you on the way. Our intellectual discussion ranges from Big O discussion (Smith Mansion), General Anime Discussion (Ailesberry Farm), and general discussion of Current Events, TV, Movies, Video Games, etc, all found in the Speakeasy. Also, we have some wonderful artists. Their work may be found in Nightingale. Smile

Second of all, here are some threads I suggest you look at:

Dawnstrider's Orientation Thread - A general overview of living and posting here at Paradigm.
The Fallen Phoenix's The Official Paradigm-City Survival Guide (Orient. - Sec 2) - What you need to know in order to live successfully here.
Dawnstrider's Visual Rule Guide - A great approach to learning the rules here.

Those will answer a lot of questions.

Third, the Forum Diplomat thing. If you find yourself having any questions or comments, or just want to shoot the breeze, feel free to PM me. My PM box is always open, and you will get a response as soon as I receive your PM. Smile

And, finally, you deserve two gifts. The first is... A Baseball Bat covered in Barbed Wire and sweaty gym socks! Enjoy it. The second gift, from the vault of major pain, is a glow stick major pain peed on. Enjoy.

So, enjoy your stay here, and watch your sanity disappear!

*EDIT- Wow, calling myself by someone else's username is what I get when I copy parts of another post Frown .

Hey hey, SW! Smile Since I am currently posting from campus (my unfortunate 2nd home almost), I shall have to bestow upon you something from the computer lab...

::looks around::

Hmmmm...

AH!

I giveth thee...

::drumroll::

The love-life of one of the lab administrators. They sure as hell aren't using it. ::mutters as they scream "I'm dead! I'm soooooo dead!" while playing some game::

I'm working on a project here!

sorta...

Hello Serenity Wayneright and welcome. Our domes are your domes. Make yourself at home and enjoy allthe lovely fanfics and fan art there is to see.

Don't worry about the rambling some of us go on and on rambling about this thing or the other. Sometimes you can't get some of us to shutup it really gets annoying. I don't know what we are going to do with some of these people. I...**looks around** heh Sweatdrop

err nevermind,

Enjoy your stay! Big Grin

Welcome to the boards Smile . I see that you are already making yourself at home here Wink . Our diplomat has already pointed out the suggested threads to help you out, so I'll leave you with a gift: it's a ten rating in your profile. Regardless of how you are received in this place from here on out, you could say that you started out with the weight of at least one person's good opinion on your shoulders - hope it sets the tone for the others you will accumulate Wink .

Again, welcome, and have fun Big Grin .

Peace Cool
