can't we all just be friends.
Yes, we can... If you feel like putting up with the randomness I spew out every once and then. And if you like lurking on the forums without ever posting for long periods of time. Actually, that second one is not a requirement, I am just lazy like that and often forget to check what's new in the band and what you guys are talking about.
I'd give you a karma cookie as an encouragement, but I think only full members and Machinae Primes and higher-ranked members can give karma points. It's pretty much the equivalent of internet cred. It does not matter. But some people like seeing that number go up.
And it does not affect your real life karma.
With that out of the way, welcome to the forums! They are going to shit these days, but at least I sometimes remind myself that I am posting some unnecessary bullshit that is harmful to the community and back off from that idea. Which... does not help a whole lot when only one person is doing that, but if everyone did that, then it would be a healthier, better and more active place. So, it's a good habit to read the rules of the forum every now and then if you forget them.
