Long time reader, first time poster. Finally made an account to post a reply in the reactions forum, but guess I have to jump through this here hoop first. Been reading Sluggy since Torg was still a web designer. What a long strange trip it's been!

I enjoy responding to questions sometimes with "dunno." I find it amusing, but others rarely do. :riff:

Welcome to the forum scottm!

Yeah, this "hoop" is still here even though the anti-spam measures put into place after the site upgrade make it not really necessary anymore. At one time we were getting literally hundreds per day. Now, that last time we had solitary spammer was a few months ago.

It has been quite awhile since Torg was a web designer. Um, what else?... Let me check my notes... Ah, yes!

Anyway [Member's name here], now I will tell you about the strange tradition aimed at newcomers.

At one time there were Pesterers who pestered you for poetry, but that tends to be very rare nowadays. Even though you may not be pestered, if you do go and post an original poem --usually haiku but any (clean) type is accepted-- written by you, you will most likely receive a gift in return. The "gift" will most likely be useless or maim you. Whichever it may be, it should be interesting and surprising. Lastly, this strange tradition applies to the pestering not the poetry. You are not required to do anything more to be a member here...unless you want to possibly get a [name of harmlessly fatal item here] or some other type of gift.

Now go forth and do (almost) whatever you want, just don't speculate in Reactions.
