I recently said I wanted to do an outreach program, and I am going to use this thread to start it. New members that have hardly no, to zero interaction in the forums may not know how to communicate with people or never got to experience DDO in the way we have. I want to use this thread as brief way for some members that participated in the election to get to say hi, and tell us about themselves. I encourage new members and older members alike to participate and encourage some of the new guys that post, and let's give them the same experience that we have on DDO. Make them feel like apart of the community and let's help integrate them in and encourage them to stick around

Hi fellow DDOers, DDOians and DDOrks! I'm esocial (aka Annie.)

I do interviews without some members. My sign up list (IIRC) is on my profile!

Hit me up if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer. :-)

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Mikal asked me to introduce myself as a newbie. I like him so I'll comply... maybe just this one time ;)

I don't feel new because I've been baptized in the fiery hell that is the religion sub-forum for a couple months now. D: So far only one person wants me dead (that I know of) so I think I'm doing alright.

So here I am! And HOLY CRAP! You mean there are normal threads here?

Alright, well.
Hi, I guess. My name is Valkrin, and I mainly participate on the debate side of the site, and not as much of the forums. So I'm looking to welcome myself here as someone new.
Mainly, I'm a professional internet recluse. Apart from school I mainly just look at the web, play games such as CS:GO or osu!, and that's pretty much it.

I first discovered the site when looking at an opinion comparing two games I liked. I noticed that it was a site completely dedicated to debating. Interested me, I decided to join.

I've participated in 19 debates as of now. Not that many, and only a handful of forum posts. Hopefully I hopefully will become more active in the community of DDO and the forums. I hope that I can have a fun experience forward and I look forward to having fun with you guys :)

Hi , my name is SebUK . I have been a member for about a year or so . I have been interested in politics since a very young age which is pretty much what made me stay on the website . Politics , that is why i'm here . It is my life passion and I love debating policy making and such . I am a 15 year old although that has never been a problem on DDO and I have not been looked down upon just based on my age . I have been treated wth respect and challanged just like any other user . It is actually surprising how much the Polls section and the Debating section differ from the forums , I have only gotten involved in the forums a few weeks ago / months ago and it is a great new experience . There is a specific culture on DDO that you may not be familiar with when you join , people talk differently here and there are some classic references used in threads that you may not know and this may effect if your visit to the forum will remain a short one or if it will become a long one . It is really worth it to learn about the forums and I (And others) are willing to help new members to get engaged in them . Overall the forums have been a fresh new exciting experience and I am not planning this to be a short visit . :) . Back to me I would also like to mention that you may contact me about anything and I will give you the best advise I can , if you want to find out more I have wrote a lot more about myself on my profile .- Best wishes , SebUK .
I WILL DECIDE WHAT THIS DEBATE IS ABOUT. I AM SPIRITUAL, NOT RELIGIOYUS. YOU DONT HAVE TO BE RELIGIOUS TO BELIEVE IN GOD, AND YOU DO WORSHIP MONEY IF YOU CARE MORE ABOUT YOUR WALLET THAAN YOU DO THE POOR. YOU ARE A TROLL THAT IS OUT FOR ATTENTUION."- SitaraMusica

Hi, I'm Mishap! I chose my username because I often find myself stuck in funny mishaps. For example, when I was 7, I mistook a floating leaf mat on a creek for land and stepped on it! I got quite wet.

I'm a Christian, old fashioned and conservative, but I don't think I'm too up-tight. I try my best to be accepting of other people even if I don't agree with them.

Contrary to popular belief, my favorite animal is a horse, not squirrels, though I like squirrels quite a lot as evidenced by my profile pictures. :D

I spend WAAAYYY too much time on here, I'm sort of addicted... yeah. But it's fun, and I've made a lot of good friends!

No! That's how he ropes you in! At first it's just one little thing, and then you're breaking into Washington for him....

No?
Just me?

And you're still alive?
*applauds*
That's impressive.


So here I am! And HOLY CRAP! You mean there are normal threads here?

Indeed. Welcome to DDO!

Kyle here. Not my real name, but it works. New here, but not new to forums. Two previous forums are now defunct, and the last one, which I still frequent, has nearly dried up. So here I am.

Welcome, then, to the land where the forums never run dry. Except for all the ones that do.

I don't really have a favorite per se, but I enjoy topics that can be from mathematics to which game I find to be the best. :P
