    Welcome to the boards, Squonk.

    I am Israel, a cold and unexpressive Mexican (the only one here, so you can say I am one-of-a-kind in RPGamer). I have written four fics and headed for the fifth and sixth. I am also some guy who thinks love is stupid and I almost get tortured at school for saying that in English class (our main language is Spanish as I am sure you know). Love is unexistent for me, as I have no heart.

    Welcome, anyway.

    Is there anyone else that can make good siggy pics besides Aliena? I've sent PMs to her at least 3 times and she still hasn't responded. She might be on vacation or something. sarcasm.gif Anyway, I need somebody to drop me a line ASAP.

    Hey, waitaminute! I know where you got your name, Zaphod Beeblebrox! Your name is the code you type in for the PC point-and-click adventure, The 7th Guest! When you type it in I guess you can warp to different parts of the mansion. Glad I caught that! Anyway, I know what to do to get a title. You just have to write a long and impressive post to get Lord Brian to give you one. But I don't think I can find any topic to give a long-winded speech about. The Athenian or generator got one after doing that thing about cigerretes. Or maybe I just have to write something witty and thought-provoking. confused.gif

    Yoe, Zaphod, welcome to the boards.

    Anyway, Zidane, I can make a sig for you if you want. Drop me a PM telling me what you want. Finally next time, drop by the Happy sig shop to order a sig. There are plenty of people on the boards willing and happy to make you one.

    I really hope that was sarcasm, because the name was taken from a far more impressive source than The 7th Guest.

    You should all make your own sig pics, having some one else do it defeats the purpose of expressing yourself. Which is what having a sig and avatar is about, unless your a mindless fool who simply gets his avatar or sig from whatever new pop-culture phenom; like the matrix for example.

    But what if you simply have no way to make one yourself? Malango made mine and I think it does a wonderful job of expressing me.

    yes yes but YOU are not expressing your self you are giving someone else the ideas and having them do it.

    Finally, someone who agrees with me on that point...


    Personally though, I'd rather have larger avatar sizes and no sig images allowed at all. Ah well, I suppose I'll live.


    Oh yeah, I'm a bit new too wink.gif

    A question... typing down ";)" doesn't automatically get the winky smiley, like at most forums... any special reason for this?

    Ruraz and Lord-of-Shadows, welcome to the boards.

    Also, the reason ;) doesn't do wink.gif Because :"wink": does that. Well without the quotation marks.

    Well, what did you do that was so completely moronic? Did you have to type a secret word? I should get a title for bravely changing my name from mogster to Zidane Tribal. Besides, I've been here since January. alien.gif
