1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

So I will introduce myself now...

    My nic comes from a really old expression that can either mean full of nonsense or excellent quality. So you can continue to expect that my posts will be of the highest caliber of nonsense.

    I love a good-natured debate and there is nothing so ridiculous (other than religion or politics) that I will not debate. Don't believe me? Blue should not be a color of ink pen.

    I really had no good reason to use the arrow posticon. Did I need one?

    I really don't like to talk about myself that much. I prefer to let it be a, well, suprise. :p

    So what you are saying is that you agree that blue should never be used in an ink pen.

    Thanks for the kind welcome. Having been here a month I have already gotten the lay of the land but this is a really good idea for new members. Back in the day when I had patience to run a message board my most successful board had greeters for new members. Not as successful as this one... we only averaged 2400 posts per day.

    No, not saying that at all. I don't mind blue, prefer black myself.

    Yes I had seen you have been here and done quite a lot of posting, you just never know what info members have picked up and seeing how you decided to introduce yourself, I thought I would give you the whole Welcome speech.

    You don't mind blue? Time for petty name calling.

    I know I was supposed to introduce myself first but I like to check a board out before investing time into getting to know its members. Some bosrds are over moderated and it makes for a miserable experience. I was a bit concerned by the ratio of people viewing to people actually posting but the mods here seem to have a good sense of when to step in and when to allow the board to be organic. When the revolutionary thread had some minor humor hijacking I was convinced.

    Welcome from Canada.

    We're not much for revolution here. The occasional bloodless coup perhaps.

    Be sure to check out the "Where In The World" thread in the OFF TOPIC lobby. A picture paints three dozen words, give or take.
    In fact, there's a newbie challenge up for grabs right now. May as well jump right in.
