Enter.

Hello. I am new.

I am not sure whether this is the right thread, but it said "practice thread" (no idea what "UBB" is, sorry, the page did not enlighten me either). I wanted to try out posting b4 going for a real one.
Or is there some playground thread for newbies to bond a bit before their first day at school? (I shall not go to Hell first thing in the morning, I have gathered that much).

I have read the board rules but the links for "trolling" and "fire-baiting" did not work, so I have no clue what they are. But I understand they are evil, base and mean and presumably punishable by burning at the stake? Probably they are something I am doing right now? Or about to do next?

Anyway, this was just to say hello.

And if trolling and fire-baiting are something easily done by mistake rather than intent, I should be glad to be enlightened before I am flamed.

Thank you.

Hi, Menantes. There is a thread in All Saints just for the purpose of introducing yourself around (click here). That's a good place to start.

UBB is the code that our software uses for making quotes, italics, bold text, hyperlinks, and so on. This thread is just a place to try things out before using them in "real" posts. It's also a good place to ask for help with those sorts of things.

Trolling and flamebaiting are forms of disruptive behavior often seen on internet bulletin boards. Loosely speaking, they both involve making obnoxious and inflammatory posts for the purpose of upsetting people and provoking conflict. These are intentional behaviors, so you don't need to worry about doing them accidentally.

Welcome aboard!

Scot
