Hi! My name is Echo and I'm relatively new here. I was wondering if you guys could help me figure out my place here (On the site that is). Please if you can help me in any way do. Any help you or anybody could offer would be AWSOME!

Whale come on in and sit right down!
A few suggestions:
Never say something you can't back-up; you WILL be called out on it.
Don't let people get to you, it can get hot here.
Add every usual member as a friend, it's more like a watch-list.

He is a member of this site that was banned a little while ago. He was a troll and a nuisance. Since I know you're not who you say you are, I conclude you are hiding your true identity because we would otherwise know who you are.

Or am I playing too much mafia?

Echo Rose Phoenix is too cool a name to be allowed. The earth would implode apon itself. I'm just messing with you. ^_^ I HAVE been playing too much Mafia.

Anyway, Freedos rules were pretty accurate. If you want to fit in more quickly, it pays to read more than you write, don't take anyone or anything TOO seriously or not seriously enough and don't get on the bad side of our more villianous members (they know who they are).

C'mon, we can't attack each new member just because of the possibility they might be an old one in disguise.

Ok Thanks! Now I hear that people are placed in certain catagories Here! I would like to see which of them I get placed in. Is that at all possible?

It will depend on your personality, your wit, your ability to express and defend yourself and your religious and political beliefs.

Welcome! :D

Here's the low-down:

1) This can be a high stress place since people's beliefs and opinions can be attacked with vehemence. But, don't worry! If you believe in what you say, can back it up and are willing to fight.... you'll do awesome!

2 ) Friend whoever you want and feel free to ask questions. We've all been n00bs before, so no one is going to purposely hurt you for asking.

3) Don't take yourself or others too seriously! Have fun and do what you want. It's a diverse group so I bet you'll find people you'll fit in with!

4) I'd wait a little before you start posting debate challenges. Watch and see how others get their points across. People will read into EVERYTHING you say.

Have an awesome time! New members are always welcome!! :D
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Also, we're having an "Favourite Album Cover Avvy Week", you'll notice a lot of people have album covers as their avvys. You can join in if you like.

Is there a way to test any of that here and now?

Your undecided/not saying about everything but gay marriage and have your religion set to private.

What are your specific veiws about any three things on the big issues list, and your religious beliefs?

That is a reasonably good test for political views.

The religion one is pretty straight forward:
Do you believe in God?
If so, which God?
If not, how strongly do you disbelieve?

The rest isn't really something you can test. ann's advice about debate challenges is good though. Go and check out the leader board. Try and debate like Lwerd and the other highly ranked people, we have some awesome talent here.

Eh she was my best friend. Her main fake name was Farah[Farrah, Fara etc]/Echo[Eko, Ecco etc] mine was typically Emo something, Emo rose, emo lover, emo life, or almost any fictional thing such as vampire, nymph, pheonix, dragon, even Shadow.
She knows our system pretty well and I think she used the same avvie a few times.
She has like 3 accounts here that she doesn't use, I know 2 of them but not the third.
Plus I'm really defensive atm. Logically I can decide that you aren't her but I still feel something is off.
