    Man, be gone for a while, and t'is almost impossible to catch up.

    Better late than never:
    @Aragorn II
    It's not *only* the "Newbie-syndrome", I'm the oddball EVERYWHERE, SP is no exception.

    AND EVERYONE, THIS IS THE LAST TIME I SAY THIS: What I've been trying to say all the time, avatars DO give a certain degree of personalization, giving a small sign of who you are.

    PS: I would REALLY like to let go of this avatar-and-newbie-crap, so I would very much appreciate if ya'll had the decency to do the same.

    I broke up with my girlfriend, most of my friends hate me, my mind is playing tricks on me, my whole family is in squabbles and to top it all of my cousin is really badly sick. Can life get any better than this? *hint* notice the sarcasm dripping off every letter in this post...

    I need alcohol... and a lot of it!

    Actually we dream of nothing else, I suppose. But it seems you're the only one so gravely afflicted by this problem and only you speak of it all the time. I have news for you: people have their own lives and their own affairs and your being newbie or not is probably 2397th of their most important problems and even when replying to your posts they have more important questions to ponder. So if you're going to stop dwelling on your being 'new' - as you state it, please do that without further ado. There are 5700 registered members here and no one receives special rights.

    For the last time I repeat: avatar, post count and registration date add to your prestige but it's only what you say that makes your reputation. Reply to topics, open your own ones, vote in polls, participate in discussions, in one word: contribute. This will earn you prestige. Being kind and polite (ie speaking in a gentler manner than in your post above, especially when addressing 'all' - you're trying to make friends, remember?) will earn you acceptation and eventually make you a well-liked member, to some people possibly a friend. Coming here and crying that you feel disdained on the grounds of being new just because some people coming here regularly receive more attention is all but prestigious and won't earn you the acceptation you so desire. Friendly advise: being loud and arrogant doesn't put you forward even an inch. Doing unto people like you would like to be done unto is generally the best way to assure that you're being kind.

    Now please follow the advise given from so many people (yes, they actually cared enough to give you advice, this should make you feel better) or ignore it, but inflate the problem no more.

    Eze, "Tamperella" => "Tampereella" :nono: Otherwise it sounds like it's one step away from Libresse.

    Try to make it to Linnanmäki, in Helsinki, if you can; the best theme park in the country. :D

    Virne, I have been at Linnanmäki for like fifty dozen times already.

    I am going to a low-fantasy LARP. I am going to be a wannabe-nun, who is in love with some kind of a bard. Really cool.

    Arabwel: Actually it is my stepsister, her husband and four other people doing those. I made a house today. Kewl. Tomorrow we're going to find something to make a dress. Gah, I am going to wear a dress. Yay then. And I am going to be a Jesus-saves-all fanatic. Totally contradicting. And I am going to be a happy chipper, oh well. But I am having an inner fight. Yayness.

    Bye, bye now. I have to go to shower and wash my clothes.

    @ RotKU
    That was a fluke... well, not really, but I'm not bloody happy. 55 16 was the score. I thought that tackle by Wendell Sailor against your fullback was pretty funny. And then it happened again with Cannon about 10 minutes later.

    Rocokoko is bloody brilliant. Good buy ;) .

    I can't get into the SP photo album... who set it up? I'd like to reapply directly through them rather than MSN.

    I can't seem to get into it either. First of all I can't load the damn page, then when I finally do and register it keeps saying I haven't registered and this is a "members page only"...

    Latest survey shows that 3 out of 4 people make up 75% of the world's population. Did anyone know this? It's amazing aye?
