  1. By "relevant post", do you mean any pinned posts that lay out what the Ajah/Guild is about? I was checking out some of them yesterday and noticed some do have those pinned posts, and others do not. If not that, what would be an example of a "relevant post"? Thanks!
  2. I saw that and was like "O.M.G, I think these are my peeps." I can go on and on about HP. GoT too. And LoTR, musicals, fairy tales, mythology, Dune (another series I can't WAIT for), Isaac Asimov's Foundation series, Ender's Game, Star Trek, Star Wars, Nintendo...seriously, the fantasy/sci-fi/pop culture lists goes on and on and on and on.....
  3. For me, it was a three-way tie, with the tie-breaker being my answer to "Which Ajah do I identify with most?", which is a hard question to answer because I identify with many aspects of all three from a philosophy perspective. I will say, though, when reading the books, I wanted to be a Green. I've always felt there are two sides to my personality: the logical, philosophical side, and the side that loves all things girly and fun. I've struggled in my life to balance the two, because of the perceptions that my girly/flirty/make-up and fashion loving side is not serious, intelligent, or as having depth. This is not to say Greens are shallow or superficial...just that they embrace a part of me that wants to be out, but carries a lot of fear with it. Greens are able to be that strong person, owning everything that they are regardless of others' perceptions. I'm a bubbly, goofy person, and I already struggle with being taken seriously, so adding in being girly and all that compounds the problem. If you've ever watched the show Scrubs, the character Elliot is very much me, and there was an episode where she struggled with this very issue. However, at this point in my life, I've embraced much of who I am (mermaids, unicorns, magic, nerdy, goofy and all), and feel more whole as a person. It only took 43 years. But....this is all fantasy and just a test, and shouldn't be taken too seriously ;). The jury is still out on how I'd answer that last question, though... Blue Ajah: 5 Gray Ajah: 5 White Ajah: 5 Green Ajah: 3 Yellow Ajah: 2 Red Ajah: 2 Brown Ajah: 2 PS: the one House I *know* I'm a member of is Ravenclaw, through and through :D:D:D.
  4. Ah, ok thanks! This is going to be kinda difficult because I don't want to give too much away, as the show is full of interesting revelations. But here goes! I don't want to say too much more, because how these families are tied together, as well as how the whole thing started, is interesting and crazy. This is a show that you need to watch without distraction, because if you miss one thing, you'll wind up confused. It's also a show that you'll watch again. I know my second time through, things made more sense, and I was able to appreciate the production side of the show more (writing, acting, settings, costuming, etc). It really is a great piece of work!
  5. Dumb question first: how do I do the spoiler brackets?
  6. Part 1: 1)What are members of the WT/Warders expected to do? First and foremost, respect each other. Being that DM is global, there is a diversity of people, all holding different languages, beliefs, cultures, etc, not to mention, even within the same area, people have different opinions, interests, and ways about them. Respecting these differences goes a long way in a harmonious community. We are also expected to keep role playing to a minimum, since there is another forum for that, as well as the only people who get to channel are Accepted and Aes Sedai. Basically, we are expected to be the best of ourselves, and to follow the clearly-defined guidelines set before us. 2)What is the Code of Conduct, and how does it apply to you? The CoC is a guideline for what is and is not acceptable in the forum. It sets expectations for those who wish to participate in the group. It defines rules, violations, and other criteria in order to maintain a sense of community that can be enjoyed by the majority of people. This code applies to me because I am interested in participating in the group, and in order to do so, I am bound to follow what has been laid out for all of us to follow. We all have different ways of having fun and participating, but what we have in common is no one wants to put up with jackholes or inappropriateness, and The Code helps protect against that. 3)What in the heck does PG13 mean? Pretty much keep content/behavior/language to where it is appropriate for a 13-year-old. 4)What is Thread-Hijacking and Spam, and what is the general policy of the WT/Warders regarding that? Hijacking is the act of going off topic and derailing the intent of the thread with a different topic altogether, or having your own personal discussion within a topic. Spam is posting the same stuff over and over, posting in places where one shouldn’t, or making unnecessary multiple posts (much like how my mom texts me…instead of sending everything in one message, she’ll hit enter after every sentence. EVERY SENTENCE. But I digress). The general policy is: Don’t do it. Be courteous. Have good etiquette.
  7. I have a pretty wide range of what fun can be, so it depends. I love theatre, karaoke, fishing, sitting in panels/reading stuff about my favorite shows/books/movies etc, and really, anything that piques my interest. How about yourself?
  8. I'm an IT product manager (remote access and assistive technology are my products) for Citi, and I'm located in San Antonio, TX. I spent about 8 or 9 years in the Bay Area myself in the Fairfield/Vacaville area (I was stationed at Travis AFB a couple of years). As a matter of fact, it was an old friend from the area that introduced me to WoT back in 2004. I'm originally from Alabama (Roll Tide), and am into theatre, karaoke, anything pop culture and fantasy related, and fishing/outdoors. I enjoy trying new things, and have a strong desire to learn anything and everything.
  9. Oh sure! It's three seasons of twisty-turvy time-travel that will boggle the mind. It's very well thought out, and sticks to the rules of time travel it lays out. It follows several different families in a little town in Germany, and how they are connected. The show is in German, and is dubbed. It doesn't take but an episode or two to forget it's dubbed. It's not for kids, due to some mature content. It's a great mystery, and does a good job of answering questions and posing more questions as it moves along.
  10. Has anyone watched Dark on Netflix? Oh holy cow...it's A LOT to process. It's definitely a show that needs multiple re-watches. There is so much that is GOOD about the show, from the concept, to the writing, acting, set and costume design...it's all intentional and well thought out. I'd love to hear ya'lls thoughts on the show.
