    Welcome, Newcomers! You're probably here because you share the passion that is Buffy!! We feel your excitement! Checking out this thread was the right thing to do! It gives valuable information that will help avoid conflicts among new and old members!


    As a forum member, feel free to post in any thread on the board, and even make new threads for new topics of discussion. But although you are new here, many of us are not. And we have seen the same discussions over and over time and time again. And so, we can be pretty picky, and sometimes even rude when newcomers make threads that already exist! Now, we know that you don't want to go searching through every single thread on the board just to see if the thread you are about to create has already been made. We understand how much time it would take since the Buffy Forum is one of the most used at tv.com and literally has tons and tons of pages. However, it would be GREATLY appreciated if you atleast check out or skim through the first few pages. That way, if you see the topic you're looking for, you can just add on to the discussion or read through it to maybe answer any of your questions. By doing this, you revive the thread (put it at the top of page one) and others will check out your additions and/or questions.

    NOTE-- The Buffy Questions and Answers thread is the official thread for asking questions! Please, Please, Please do not start a thread just to ask one question. Trust me, it has happenned plenty of times before and always leads to arguements! We'd truly appreciate it if you post any and all questions in The Buffy Questions and Answers thread. Plus, they'll be answered much quicker and keep the board cleaner!

    Also! NOTE-- If you see a thread that starts with the letters RST, it is one of the many off topic threads here at the Buffy forum. RST stands for Random Silliness Thread. Feel free to join in on the conversation because these threads are great for getting to know the other users here at the forum. Thank You all very much for taking the time to read this! It is greatly appreciated by all of us, here at the Buffy Forum at tv.com! Please, keep the language clean, avoid unnecessary threads, and remember to have fun!

    Tonight the dead walk
    and the living will tremble
    as the ground breaks
    and the earth shakes
    oh great necromantic power I seek
    I invock NEHEK!

    I've used my necromantic powers to revive the thread

    I haven't posted on this board before because, to be honest, I've been a little scared to.
    I've read almost all the threads on the board (except the game threads) and I've noticed how much conflict there is. It really is a bit scary!
    I understand how frustrating it is for people to have to read and answer the same questions again and again, so I will check older posts before posting the same thing and I'll be sure to post any questions in the FAQ thread.

    I think that it was a great idea for you to post this thread for newcomers and if everyone reads this before posting, there will hopefully be less arguments and more newcomers will feel much more welcome. I know I do.

    By the way - I'm Debbie. Hello to all!

    You are welcome to come into the RST thread! No rudeness tolerated there! It's a safe place. Oh yeah, and welcome

    As long as you're sensible and listen to others and aren't obscenely obtuse, you'll have no problem getting along here.

    I get a bad rap, as I'm sure you know if you've been familiar with the threads, but I'm not the antagonist here.

    Honest.

    Don't you just love that word? Obtuse? I think it's a cool word. So much better then insulting with swear words.

    Hi Debbie! Glad you feel more welcome. I'm hoping this thread will have the same effect on all the newcomers as it did on you!

    I wished that there was a thread like this when I joined....it is very helpful, the last thing I wanted to do as a newbie was to annoy the old users.

    Nice Idea ilovedb!!!
