I figured I'd take a moment and write up some suggestions for making an effective introduction on this site, to help us get to know you better, and help you discover what a bunch of weirdos we are get to know us better!

Why should I make an intro post?

Like I just indicated, we're a community of people who all know and interact with each other. We'd like to interact with you, too. In order to do this, we all need something to talk about. Highfive

What should I cover an intro post?

Start by telling us a little about yourself:

- Do you work or go to school?

- Do you have any hobbies or interests?

- Tell us how you found furry, and what parts of furry interest you?

- Do you write, draw, or fursuit?

- Have you attended one or more conventions?

- Do you run any conventions? Dance

Are pictures okay?

If you feel comfortable posting a picture of you in real life or of your fursona, feel free to do so.

Do we have to live IN Pennsylvania?

It's not mandatory, but it helps! For more info on this topic, see our Who Is Welcome Here? page.

Do we have to be furry to post here?

No, that's cool if you're not. If you're "furry friendly" or just curious about the fandom, you're welcome to participate here.

Anything I shouldn't mention?

Keep in mind that these are all-ages forums. If there's something you wouldn't want to say around the 12-year old son of the local police chief, you probably shouldn't post it here.

General Discussion is fine. Or you can make a blog post, too.

It's all the same to the software. The What's New? page shows everything that's new, regardless where it was posted.

Hi I'm Birdie!!

I recently moved up here from Delaware and into a house of fellow friends and furs up in York Blush/ ^///^

I'm a Gryphon (phoenix/siberian tiger) and have a few pics on my FA page, also commissoned a partial by Wolfbird of her. Shinies!/Oooooo/love

I work in Lancaster and soon to be attending HACC here in York in the near future. I am a gamer girl, though these days I mostly play World of Warcraft and various games I dig up from Big Fish Games. Umm ... I'm bad at describing myself ... but feel free to shoot me a message and I will answer the best I can.

Hello and Welcome Calvin!

You'll want to post this up in the "Introduction's" forum.

At the top of the webpage, almost in the middle, you'll see in a deep purple rectangle, "Events Forums, Search WAT?"

Click on "Forums" and it will take you to the list of forums you can peruse and post to.  Click "Introductions."

At the top you'll see "Post new Forum Topic." Click on that and copy and paste what you have here, there, in a new post.

Most everything else is self explanetary, but don't forget to put "Introduction" and "New" in the Tags.  If you don't put anything in the Tags, it won't let you Post.  It's a weird little quirk. Smile

Welcome again!

Swift

If you want the most visibility, the recommended practice is to make a new thread.  That way, we can promote it to the front page of the site. Smile
