How kewl...just like Lockergnome only purple!  Good, I need some way to tell where I am. :huh:   I can even use the same avatar.  Confusion sure to follow.  (no really, I like this format.  Consistancy between the two forums I'll no doubt spend a lot of time in is a good thing)

LOL, y'all excuse me while I do the little girlie thing and giggle & scream hysterically while jumping up & down in greetings to a friend from another forum far, far away. Well, maybe not that far away...just a page or two back from where I am now.  :huh:

Hey Patrick (and friends)…Now why did you go ahead with the plan???  :rolleyes:  I thought we agreed that cutting the cord between Scot’s forum and his host was a bad idea. ;) Scot I’m glad that you have fixed the problem with your web host.

Thanks!Listen, I think folks are bridling a bit about the hokey Post Title/Rank names, like "newbie" and "newcomer." I know I'm supposed to be the wordsmith, but I am w-i-d-e open to suggestions from any of you smart ones about how I should rename these doodads.I mean, I gave some thought to Fishy Cool Bird, but decided, eh, mebbe not. Still, I very much appreciated the thought!- Scot

Well, lol, a new person could be a "Scotie". Then you progress to a "Scotsman". And finally an "Elder Scot".  :rolleyes: I personally think you are between a rock and a hard place. When it comes to using those labels, there is no way you will ever please all the people. Maybe their is an option to allow people to choose their own, if that is a direction you want to go.

Being "50-proof" Scots (NO!... it isn't Scotch.  That's for things, like candy and Shortbread, not people) myself... I vote for that!!Perhaps something in a different language?Neophyte - LatinNovitiate - FrenchOh!!... Any Trekkies in our ranks know the Klingonese equivilant??  (Though it probably sounds NASTY) :rolleyes:

Hey, why d'ya think my name is "Scot"? My dad was 100 proof, making me 50 proof too. "Finnie" is Scots.When I was at PC/Computing magazine, the joke was that if I were ever to develop a theme for myself, it should probably be as a wild-eyed "mad scientist." (I think that might be because I "torture" tested notebook PCs by putting them in hardware store paint can mixers, and stuff like that, but I'm not sure.)So, anyway, we could add that to my Scottish heritage and get:Wee ScottieWild Hair ScotsoMad Hatter ScotsmanandCap'n, I Canna Hold 'Er Any Longer!... eh, mebbe not.Wait, Trekkies? Trekers? Man, I'm confused ... ouch!-- Scot

I have reported you all the the Dept. of Homeland Security. You are obviously terrorists, bent on taking down a free-speech forum that is essential to national security.Just as soon as we have some troops available (you are in line right after N. Korea), YOU ARE GOING TO BE SORRY.can I be sorry with you? i think it would be a "rounding" experience for me. :o  ;)  :D  B)  :rolleyes:  :blink:  :blink:  :ph34r:

P.S.I do have the Klinghai font and translation package here. Some of the trnaslations are a bit hard to understand:Newbie...something about a goat.Member...forget it, it's gross.I'm a Scot, as well. Scot, in Klinghai, refers to "guzzler", "golfer", and "danger to all women"? :rolleyes:  :blink:  :blink:  :ph34r:  ;) I don't know about the first two, but the third has me pegged. :D  B)  :o

If a Swede can barge into this string for a quick comment (about the names, not about all you highlanders :D ), I like the simple convention of "member", "moderator", etc.  Democracy for all members, and it gets attention if the post is from "the front office".  Don't go for Klingon, the pronunciations make my tongue hurt.
