Just Another Tomato

Dominus Excelsior 12-31-2004 05:09 AM
Just another newbie on the block. I have only, ten minutes before typing this post, just completed watching "The Big O II". The Big O, quite honestly, is my favorite anime series. I tend to like the storys that make you think (like Neon Genesis Evangelion).

I consider myself to be a run-of-the-mill otaku. I buy anime, download (unlicensed) anime, cosplay, and attend anime conventions of all sorts. Please do not take me for a hyper fanperson, "I am who I am" (pardon the Big O quote Pleased ).

Well, that is my intoduction, I look forward to posting with you all.

Greetings, Dominus Excelsior, and welcome to our happy domes! For your welcoming gift, here's a 10-rating, because everyone should have a 10 sometime!

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

Cool. I see that you are a great person in sense of what you like. Ha ha, I'll never understand some otakus, but maybe you'll have a chance. ::chuckles:: By the way, I'm Juvenile Angel and I'm Paradigm's resident Psychic. I think you'll enjoy it here, it's actually quite nice, even with all the little gnomes running around here.

If you need anything, don't hesitate to give any of us a call, especially me. I'm alway looking for someone to hang out with, ya? But it appears you've already gotten the hang of it all.

Later days:

That is undeniably the greatest username I have ever seen.

Welcome to Paradigm City! If you happen to be a writer or artist of any sort, I'm looking forward to seeing your work in the Nightengale.

Oh, yeah, welcoming gift, welcoming gift... eh, finding the Big O and getting to watch it tops anything I could think of, so you already have a gift. But I'll go Pygmalion's route and rate you a ten. You already seem like you deserve it.

Hello, Dominus Excelsior. I am Wienberg, the forum's resident hippie (though slightly untrue) and the forum's official diplomat (meaning, I gladly reach out to the new members Smile ).

You picked a perfect time to sign up, as Big O is about to re-air, and there's bound to be re-kindled discussion.

Now, onto technical matters.

Here are some good threads to consult.

  • dawnstrider's Orientation Thread - A good way to start off your visit here, this thread explains everything here on Paradigm, along with adding a few helpful pointers to become a respected, successful member. Smile
  • The Fallen Phoenix's Official Paradigm-City Survival Guide (Orientation - Section 2) - An additional supplement to the aforementioned Orientation Thread, this further describes everything here on the forums, and includes some suggestions on who to avoid Tongue Smile .
  • dawnstrider's Visual Rule Guide - A Perfect supplement to the official Forum Rules Thread, this thread shows enforcement of the rules in action. A great way of comprehending the exact meaning of the rules. Smile
  • The Forum FAQs - An underestimated part of Paradigm, the FAQs give a great explanation of how exactly the forums function. They include detailed instructions on how to edit one's forum profile, use all the forum functions, and determine "user rank". For technical questions, this is the written authority.


Finally, in the event that you are confused as to the rules, Private Messages are a great way to resolve any questions. Feel free to Private Message me, the Forum Diplomat, or any of the Moderator Team members.

Have a good day. Smile

Hi and welcome! I'm trying to be better at welcoming new members, but I'm never really sure what to say. If you're interested in the "making you think" aspect of Big-O, be sure to dig through the threads in the Smith Mansion-- they're guaranteed to give you a migraine! The Nightengale Club is personally my favorite section (give my art a look if you like!). Enjoy your stay here!
