  6. A reminder to everyone changing their names for Horror month:

    PUT YOUR REGULAR NAME IN YOUR ALIAS OR SIGNATURE SO PEOPLE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
     
  7. I want to change my username to something more horror (even though blood is horror already) but I don't wanna change my username :( I'M AGAINST CHANGING USERNAME BUT I WANT TO... I hate decisions T-T
    Anyway, this month will be AWESOME :D
     
  8. To anyone doing anything to do with Frankenstein, PLEASE remember that the actual monster's name is not Frankenstein. Frankenstein was the person who created it, if memory serves.

    It seems a little obvious, yes, but the people who do it still annoy me.
