Title: Stop by and let us know you're here!
Post by: Lorri Moulton [Lavender Lass Books] on September 18, 2018, 10:31:42 AM
Thought it would be nice to have a thread to see who's here and if we're using the same name, etc.

Hi everyone!   :icon_biggrin:

Changed my name (from Acheknia) in the other place & removed sig & profile pic then decided to have the new name here.  :icon_biggrin:   :dance:

Damn, one thing I hated about the other place is the pink notice that somebody else posted while I was writing, do I want to review my post? NO, I bloody don't, I wrote it, therefore I intended to post it. Grrrrrr! Sad to see that's here too. Does my head in  :icon_frown:

Same name, except for when I post it upside-down.  Or when I deleted my name entirely and changed it to a symbol when I logged out of there for what will probably be the second-to-last time.

I decided to switch my username to my trade name, but I'm using my Phoenix Comic Fest avatar with my name on it, so people will figure it out.

I've always lurked at Kboard, but here I'm registered from the start. Looking forward to meet everyone.

I'm sorry for what happened to you over there.

I noticed that your signature still has the Kboard affiliate ID, just letting you know, in case you don't know.

I'm here and still there - kinda. Change may be good, but it's also sad. I joined KBoards back in 2008 when it was Kindle Boards because of my fascination with the device. It's where I first heard of KDP (DTP back then), and there wasn't even a Writers' Cafe yet.

However, I'm so glad for this board instead of some Facebook thing.

I used to be on kboards, but didn't post much. I plan on being more active here, as I try to turn this full time gig into overdrive (writing). I also switched my username to have nothing to do with my pen names, at least for now.

Hi folks. After reading the kerfuffle at KB, I decided to get in on the ground floor here. I can't say how active I'll be, but I'm optimistic  :grouphug:
I confess the direction of the modding had left me feeling alienated and the VS thing was just the last straw.
I hope that Tim Ellis can make a go of this. I expect that there will be a continued migration here.

I'm sort of horrified, to tell you the truth, but I have a feeling they'll grow on me. :hug: But I'm sorry, that rock n roll banana is not riding a llama. Who ever heard of a green llama? Clearly, it's Nessie.

love you Becca!

Wait ... all those emojis and no kissy face?? We've been robbed.

Thanks Mark, love you too!   :azn:

Not to hijack this for a real discussion, but I actually do need emoticons usually to help me figure out how to take something someone said. :D I think that's why I overuse them myself. I just can't help but assign voices to words and what I hear in my head doesn't always match how someone meant for me to hear what they said. :) I have to do a lot of edits to my posts to eliminate excess emoticons most of the time. In fact, big confession, but I have to actually watch myself to keep from putting them in my fiction when I'm writing. It's totally weird. But I'll write something that makes me smile and boom, there's the smiley staring back at me at the end of the sentence. :o

Emoji are super-useful, definitely. I think they're here to stay. But here's a question for you: are they marks of punctuation, or are they words?  :evil:

Continuing the thread derail... with emojis

Punctuation.

Also, I'm not terribly fond of them, but it was really weird here when they broke. And you could see the missing emojis. Happy to see them back.

Lastly, I really really wish I had the old newsgroup list of all the text emojis and their meanings that circulated somewhere between 1984 and 1986... It was cool to read at the time. And I've always wondered how many of them lasted. I can't remember how long the list was, but over 20, at least. Probably 30-50.

Hey, Becs.  I saw you registered earlier, but I wasn't sure if you'd post or not.  Glad to see you did.   :kiss:

I'm the same way.  I used to hate them as much as Mark does.  I thought they were childish and silly.  Then I started to realize that an awful lot of the arguments I saw on the internet were the result of people misinterpreting "tone."  Those arguments might have been avoided by the use of emoticons.  I didn't want to contribute to that sort of miscommunication if I could help it, so I started using emoticons on a regular basis.


My god, Timothy, the emojis ...  :shocked:


They're beautiful, aren't they?  You can never have enough.   :band:

I'd say they are textual units equal to sentences.

"I love you?" I think not. More like, "I consume your life force to sustain myself." I mean, just look at that poor dedicated corpse. But then again, when far are involved...

Migrating over here with the same avatar but a slightly different name - I was a newbie and lurker before so I doubt anyone knows me. Hoping to be more active now!

Because my name was always anonymous, the TOS didn't stress me out too much, but the lack of professionalism shown towards the community by new admins was too much.

Hey folks. I am glad to join the roll call here. Same username (it's real, as far as that goes), and avatar (that's me at work, having just shut my laptop as a courtesy to the photographer).

I'm still amazed at what all happened at The Other Place. I wonder if they'll send the good cop (better CS or BS) next, or the bad cop (lawyers).

I'm another who lurked on the other site for a very long time, but only posted once or twice. Sad to see what's happened, but I'm really glad Timothy set this place up. I've promised myself I'll actually post this time!

Hi everyone. I'm loving the look of this site. Thanks so much to whoever set it up. Too bad about kboards of course. But hopefully everyone can just come here and we can have our forum without the corporate overlords trying to steal our speech.

Hey!

Same name, though I doubt any of you remember me from KBoards, different profile pic and signature.

Happy to continue to learn and trade information and knowledge!

I'm here, shortened name, but that's ok, because I don't really post over there enough to be recognised. Will add avatar and sig when I'm on my computer to do so.

I did post that I was here, but then the hardware crashed and the forum ate 9/10ths of everything I'd done on the board, so I'm reposting to be sure.

Present, and accounted for.

Using my donkey's name here, and maybe as a new pen name, too.

He doesn't mind, as long as he gets his royalties in apples, carrots, and sugar cubes.

Looking forward to this forum growing and becoming a great community for writers and publishing, in general.

Thanks, Timothy!

Reporting for duty. Same name, different avatar - figured I'd give you all a break from my ugly mug.

I was one of those waiting to see what would happen over on kboards - then Helena happened. Although I haven't requested that my account there be deleted, I'm not keen on being overly active on a forum where the owner's response to a valid concern is 'so sue me'.

Nice to see so many familar names - hope many more join and this becomes the kboards that once was.

Same name, same avatar to which I have no commercial rights, since it's a Pre-Raphaelite painting of Medea.

Even when a contract is clearly unenforceable, I won't sign. Especially when it is inapt and a rights grab, I won't sign. I've walked away with zero regrets from several instances of contracts that were rights grabs, or loyalty oaths, or attempting to control my future actions.

In this situation I have little to lose, since I don't use my real name here and I sign up to websites using an email address that does not connect to my main one. But having little to lose isn't the point.

The emojis are a little...busy.

Edited to correct parallel construction. I should know better.

Using same name as at kboards (though I think I capitalized it here). Recently known there as unknownwriter.

Just a note to folks, please remove the kboards affiliate code from your signatures. Why give them any chance to make more money off you? I think Timothy has his own code, use yours, or don't have one. It's easy enough to remove, if you copied over the links from kboards (as I did, once I found them again using the Link Maker).

Thanks for the new forum, Timothy. I was mostly a lurker on kboards but it has been so important in my writing journey. I'm anxiously watching for more of those who posted (or used to post) frequently over there to show up here. I've learned so much from them, and enjoy their kindness/snark/humor/wisdom/courage and their willingness to share real life experience as successful authors.  (Amanda, Rosalind, Monique, Patty, Wayne, PhoenixS to name a few.) Timothy, EB, Pauline and Boyd are other favorites and they're already here!  :roll:  (I know I'll think of more people I should have included, but these are the ones who came to mind first.)
