This is a reminder from the staff, please don't spam in the welcoming threads of new members. It is a chance to get to meet and greet new members. Please take any random "fights" and non-question or non-"Hi's" posts to Insanity.

It's nice to say hello and offer some support, but if you could keep the explosions and the killing and the random BOOMKABOOM in the Kingdom of Insanity, we'd be really really uber thankful :D

You can always use those posts to introduce the new member to your Roleplay or see if they're interested in something you're working on like an Interest-Checking Thread, a General thread, or your Group~ Something to get them more involved in the various happenings of our lovely Iwaku ^.^

:D

I'm fine with doing both, but it depends on the situation and how comfortable I am with the RP, plot, or subject matter of the RP.
Favorite Genres
Scifi, Fantasy, Modern, Magical, Horror, Noir, apocalyptic, Grimdark, yaoi, yuri, anything really.
Genre You DON'T Like
Uhhh..... That's hard.

Try to keep from doing things that are entirely unrelated.

They need to be told hello and given a little guidance if they ask questions. What they don't need, is to be greeted by the sight of people posting war, destruction, or mindless gore, or if they see something SO RANDOM that it most certainly DERAILS the purpose of the thread.

Keep it on track. This isn't a contest. This is merely someone initiating into our site, looking for a little acknowledgment and support.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I am an aggressive. I love adding to the flavor of a story and bringing in NPCs (I sometimes fall in love with NPCs and make them full characters). There are times when I want to be lazy though so I don't mind playing in a game someone else is directing.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, be it full blown other world, modern Earth or spacey. I don't mind other genres. I love action in general.
Genre You DON'T Like
Horror and technical sci-fi.

I agree. It's annoying when a welcoming thread lasts several pages simply because of spam. The focus is the new member, and spam totally destroys it.

I think you meant

"looking for a FLOGGING!"

But yeah... I never have the above mentioned problems, so I completely kiss ass agree.

Yes, I do have to agree with the staff and I'm certainly thankful you guys made a PSA about it. I think the spamming on the welcoming threads really get out of hand and sometimes they are a pain in the ass. I mean, welcome the damn member and just leave. Why is there a fulfilling need to "scare" the member away? Yes, we're all a little crazy on Iwaku. But telling the new member: "OMGZ I R CRAZY WATCH OUT LULZ *explosions and death everywhere!!!1" is idiotic. What are you just trying to accomplish? Show your insanity IN insanity.
