The welcome wagon

VastmindVastmind Memphis, TN Veteran

I've noticed that the 'Introduce yourself' thread is not popping up on my recent discussions page. I have to go to the actual catagory ( General Banter) and see if anyone has walked in. Is this because it's an announcement?

I would hate for people to not be welcomed by anyone when they first arrive. Or that no one even knows they're ringin' the doorbell. :) Is anyone else just checking sporadically?

    Hey you there in Memphis! I'm a deeply troubled middle-aged man living in Northern Europe. I'm not welcomed here. But still...

    I haven't checked that thread for ages. It didn't look like a lot of people were following it. So, I just barged in on threads hoping that it wasn't something I said in my intro. :p

    You're always so thoughtful, Vastmind! Always looking for ways to help others and make them feel good. <3

    For a Buddhist...I'm not sure that's a good thing for @Vastmind to be @karasti :lol:

    Sounds the same...(well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :) )

  • Can I say Hello (from the wilderness of North Surrey =) ) here or on some other thread?

    Hi everyone,

    I already received 2 points! Quite a challenge to stay humble and such... ;)

    Hi B)

    I am humbled by your two points.

    I accept the challenge.

    First there are no points, then mountains, then no peaking ...

  • Thank you so much @lobster.
    When I think of something insightful/funny/inspiring or lobstery I will post it in gratitude.

    Honestly? Don't even try. It's hard to beat lobster at his own game.

    Even lobster has a job..... :D

  • That makes sense...
    What did I get myself into? I got super excited with the points and badges... forgivable rookie mistake I hope.
