Stop by and let us know you're here!

Thought it would be nice to have a thread to see who's here and if we're using the same name, etc.

Just got through registration. That means I'm here. My name is me. Now I have to figure out an avatar...  :band: (Oh, I like all the new smiley things! Stop me now...)

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'm here. Same name. I wasn't much of a poster there, though. Also, eventually I'll get around to figuring out an avatar.

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:


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'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.
Let's say, this one :kiss: means "I love you", a stand-alone sentence.
"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).

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.

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).

The emojis are a little...busy.

Hahaha! Me too, I have to put more powerful glasses on, they confuse my retinas.
At home I have a beautiful 4k monitor (for doing covers and stuff) It looks fine on there, but my laptop or phone or iPad?

Holy cow, I need to figure out how to resize the book covers in my sig. The new ones I just added to the old code showed up GINORMOUS.

I hope it didn't scare anyone who saw it before I hurried up and deleted my sig.  :icon_redface:

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

Thanks Cranky and Jeff! :mhk9U91:

I stand corrected on the lack of a kissie emoji. Um ... love how the guy's eyeballs pop off ...  :icon_eek:

I'm here. Not that anyone knows me, but hi!  :banana:

Hi Susanne!  :smiley:

<waves> Figured I'd better stake out a place here, in case I get tossed out on my ear over there.

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

I'm responding for two reasons.

One to say ... So glad to see you here, Becca.

Two ... I just had to see these emojis.   :Tup3a:

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.)

Greetings. I love to read and really enjoy doing so on my Kindle and Kobo. I'm blessed, or cursed depending on viewpoint, with a virtual blue pencil embedded in my eye. The blessing is it affords me the opportunity to work proofreading and copy editing with a number of authors whose work I greatly enjoy. I'm always LDB or LDB415 depending on forum requirements.

Yep, there's a private forum that you need a fig leaf or some nonsense. There are posts with instructions to get your fig leaf, and read/post in the erotica forum.

Yep, there's a private forum that you need a fig leaf or some nonsense.

I just have to say that, even though I'm not interested in erotica discussions (no offense intended), I might have considered joining if you got a Fig Newton instead of a fig leaf.

I noticed it early but lost my Forum Profile link (as in I don't have one) so have no clue how to change it!!  :icon_think:

Just finished overwriting my posts. Not that there were that many of them, but I replaced them with Do Not Consent in Russian. I figure if the place is going to be a bot spot from now on, I might as well use the correct language. Though thinking back on it, I should've used Ukrainian. Let all those single women know how I feel about them. (Why aren't there Lonely Singles ad for handsome Ukrainian men?) :kiss:

Hey! Welcome! And the emojis are growing on me, sort of like a fungus. And this :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em is quite obviously a slug with legs!

No way! Nessie forever! :icon_lol: Thanks for the welcome. :)

Good to see you here, Becca. Lots of familiar faces which is nice.  :smilie_zauber:

No idea what that emoji means...he turns himself into Skittles or something.

I appreciate randomness.

Randomness and Skittles -- both underrated. :)

To all those that think this ->  :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em is a banana riding a slug, where do you live that's causing slugs to become radioactive and glow green and grow mutant legs?

*Exactly*. It's much more likely a relic plesiosaur.

That said, this is our state mollusk ...

Plesiosaurs swim.  Bananas don't.  So it's either a green llama or that banana has a silly grin because he's drowning and has lost oxygen to his brain.

Those look yellow.  So green slugs are still radioactive.

Was a rough day not being able to access the writersanctum this afternoon/evening. I danced   :dance: like a banana when I was able to log back in.

Welcome to the KB emigrants. Looking forward to the new community being built here.

Me too!
I was refreshing the page every few hours, which probably didnt help..  grint
I didn’t post very often on kboards but hopefully I won’t lurk as much here.

I’m so glad theres not a “?” instead of an apostrophe!

OMG. You guys have brought that movie to the forefront of my mind. Sigh. Maybe it's time to rewatch. I think it's been a decade plus since I saw it.

Good times. Memory building times. I confess, I've never seen a Jack Black movie. (I think.)
