Hello everyone!
« on: June 12, 2003, 02:56:29 pm »
I just stumbled upon this board today, so I thought I'd say 'Hi!' I was actually saying to myself last night that I should find a messageboard for furs, so this is great.  '<img'>

I'm 20 years old and live in Rochester, MI, which is just north of Detroit. I'm an Arctic wolf, as you may be able to tell by my avatar. I've been a furry for a few years, but only recently have I started to really explore it and interact with other furs. I'm terribly shy (even on the Internet, heh), so this is a big step for me.

I spend way too much time online and buy way too many CDs.

np: Filter & Crystal Method - Trip Like I Do
"Take me how I am, 'cause you know I'll never change"
-VAST, 'My TV And You'

My CD collection!

greetings Decession, im fairly new here as well. glad to see im not the only one who feels a little shy. but theres no reason, everybody seems to be really nice and understanding, its a great place to talk and get to know other furs and even get to know yourself a little better, hope you enjoy your stay.
Or i could be wrong, its been known to happen, a lot, (headhang and sigh).

Nobu" means "faith", "trust" and "fiedelity". "naga" is the kanji for "long".

Welcome to the furtopia.org forums, Decession.
We get quite a few users here who are rather new to the fandom, and you're not the first shy one that I've seen making some of their first public appearances here, either. '<img'>
I've been a part of the furry fandom for several years now, myself. I don't think I was ever all that shy with things though. Heh.
Anyways... Make yourself at home. I see that you've been getting into the conversations here, so that's always a good start. Enjoy the board and all. '<img'>
 
Quick request: Can you explain your handle/nickname here? It seems like a fairly intriguing nick.

One small step for Decession one giant leap for arctic fox kind.
err sorry not been myself of late feeling far to odd hehe, Another has found there way to our shore. Come in make youreself at home. Now leave the shyness at the door you won't be needing it here . Have a little look around and then post away sooner or later you'll find that you're so emersed in the furry culture here you won't have time to be shy  '<img'> . But for now come in and have some fun enjoy you're self and hope to be seeing you around the board.
And as always the complimentary bear hug is here if needed.
All I want too do is leave paw prints in the sands of time. (Garfield)
To be forgotten is worse than death (Freya)
We are all equal in the fandom. ( WhiteFang good fur and friend )
I am not a dancing bear toothless claw less here for your amusement, more like the other way round.

Benjamin: I don't really remember where I got my nick from, I just rememer I heard it somewhere and it stuck in my mind. Apparently it means departure or decrease. I wish it were more interesting than that  '<img'>

BlackUniGryphon: The weather sucks. It's been cloudy and rainy forever! I never thought I'd say this, but I WANT SUN! What part of MA are you in? I was born in North Adams but moved here when I was 3.

And thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I think I'll like it here.

Ah, cool.
So, it was just a 'cool' word that happened to stick with ya. Fair enough. '<img'>
I figured it had something to do with being deceased or something, but I just double checked the definition for it on Dictionary.com and it matches more to what you gave here.
Stories behind nicknames and such can be rather fascinating, really.
 
As for the weather, I'm in Ontario, near to Toronto, and the weather's been rather miserable here much of the time as well. It's either nice and warm... or cold, damp, and rainy. Today, it's rather dark out, and we've got some rain going on.... with plenty of fog to top it all off. It's not very June-like, that's for sure. Oh well. Some years just suck weather-wise. I find this a bit more bearable than the nasty heat we had last year, at least.

Hello from another recent newbie to the forums.  

I totally relate to being shy, even on the Internet.  I started forcing myself to get involved as kind of therapy to overcome my shyness.  I'm so glad I did, cause I'm having fun and met some really neat furs out there.  Check out the New Furtopian thread if you want to read my long introduction about working to overcome my shyness through furry. '<img'>

This is a great board to start with as everyone is really friendy and quick to offer a virtual hug or two in Zachery's case *grin*.

Can't say much more than everyone else already has, Decession! Welcome to our little home away from home and I hope you enjoy your stay. Check out the rest of Furtopia and the other topics on the forums.

And, as everyone has stated, everyone here is friendly. No one has been eaten yet, as far as I know.  '<img'>
