Thank you very much!  I think I will like it here.

Just a thought, you might find a way to make it so that a guest can send a message to a moderator - I thought if I did that I could let you know the activation emails weren't happening.  No matter now that I'm in, though.

There's no easy way to allow guest PMs, but I enabled guest posting (pending approval) in The Lounge. Let's hope people with the same issue will notice the "guest posting is enabled" notice.

I'm tired and I can't get any sleep, so screw shyness and nervousness, I'm gonna give this forum a shot.

Hey. As you can probably tell by my chosen nick, I'm from Finland. I've lurked FSTDT for years and enjoyed the smackdowns dispensed there, and recently I found this forum and saw that it's pretty chill. Good conversation, interesting people, politics that align with my interests, bashing fundies, all that good stuff. So I'm here, hoping that I'll fit in and get along.

I'm 21, my hobbies include Magic: The Gathering, novels, classic jRPGs (read: masochism and Stockholm Syndrome), writing of the "pretending to be fictional characters online" variety, overthinking fiction and trying my best to reject heteronormativity/cissexism/sexism/racism/all that "good" stuff.

I don't know what to say at introductions.

Actually I just posted as guest ^^; I thought I'd post in this thread first and sort of get acquainted before I really start posting so people don't get uncomfortable like "who  the fuck is this rando and why is he here"

I have an account registered, but there's some trouble with the validation email. I'll request it again and wait.

(Also, what made you think I'm a man? :P I mean, I am, but still.)

Activation emails are not working. Again.

Oh well, I activated your account manually. Welcome to FQA!

Wait, you can do that? *cowers in terror and supplicates self before the mighty admin*

(I'm Suomi Saatana. I noticed the rule about keeping account names appropriate after I made that post ^^; In my defence, I was tired.)

Suomi Saatana just means Finnish Satan, right? Doesn't seem terribly inappropriate, what with us all being a bunch of godless heathens (well, not all, but the rest know who they are associating with).

Or are there subtle connotations I'm missing here? Suomi is just about the only word of Finnish I know.

It actually means Finland Satan (or something like "Finland, goddammit!"). In any case, I feel better about this nick, so eh.

Oh sweet someone who's not ten years older than me on the forum, welcome and remember we derail... a lot in this place.
