Intro/Guide Thread

Hi everyone on OT Board,

Welcome to the new version of the Introduction Thread. This first post of this thread now features more information and will be updated at least weekly. Please check back often to re-introduce yourself with our weekly questions! (see Section 3)

Off Topic Moderators

Section 1 - Message to Guests

Welcome to Off Topic Board. If you are a guest at Fan Forum, we would like to invite you to join Fan Forum, a friendly community which offers a variety of news, entertainment, and discussions. Becoming a member only consists of 3 simple steps in registration:

Page 1 - You must be at least 13 years of age.

Page 2 - You agree to Fan Forum rules.

Page 3 - You must create a username and a password, and provide an e-mail address and time zone of your location.

Section 2 - What Belongs on Off Topic Board?

Off Topic Board is for subject discussions that do not fit on other boards on Fan Forum. We encourage the creation of discussion threads, no matter how random. However, if the subject matter is not suitable for this board, it may be merged, closed or moved to other boards on Fan Forum. Please do not feel discouraged to start new threads because of this reason. We understand that sometimes, it is difficult to determine which board your thread should belong to or if your topic should belong on an existing thread. As long as your topic doesn't conflict with Fan Forum rules, we'll find a place for it.

Posters should also be aware that no new game threads are allowed unless approved by the moderators of this board.

Previously, some game threads and continuous threads have already been cut from this board. Please do not start them again. To see which threads you should not start again, see our announcement for threads closure:

Threads Closure Announcement

If you have any doubts or questions, you are welcome to contact one of the moderators of this board by private message (PM).

Section 3 - Re-Introduce Yourself Weekly!

Each week or so, we'd like to invite you to re-introduce yourselves by answering our questionnaire. Every week, we will edit the date in the thread title to let everyone know the questionnaire has been changed, so you can venture in and make a new post answering the newest questionnaire. Our questionnaire may appear in the form of questions with a certain theme (like the game thread we used to have - The Friday Five), or just a bunch of random questions (like the game thread The Hot Seat). The questionnaire consists of your basic info and 5 new questions each week. Simply copy the questionnaire below and answer them in your post. Have fun and check out others' answers too!


Questionnaire of the Week

This week's theme - Winter

Brought to you by Mod: Carol


Basic Info
Name:
Location:
Current Obsession:


1. What is your favorite thing about winter?

2. What is your least favorite thing about winter?

3. Do you get "snow days" from work or school? If so, what do you typically do on those snow days?

4. What does your winter bucket list include?

5. What are some typical traditions you do in winter?


---

Section 4 - Thread Guide

There are a selected number of threads on this board that are popular and continuous. We have decided to include the link to the latest thread for each one of these topics so that posters can locate them here if they are having trouble tracking it down on the board. Please be advised that we will not be making a guide with links to every thread on this board, which means game threads and any new topic threads are not part of this guide. The only game thread included in this guide is Hangman because the nature of the game is different from other game threads and posters will likely try to track it down to see the current puzzle.

In the future, if a topic thread not currently listed here has the potential or demand to be included in this guide, we would consider adding it here. If you see that a link here is outdated, please post on this thread or PM a mod to let us know. Thanks.

Getting Laid Thread

Romantic Relationship Thread

Pictures Thread

Pets Thread

Parents Thread

Party Thread

Work Annoyances Thread

Hangman Thread

Getting to 10,000 Posts (Bunny Thread)

Section 5 - Mods' Choice Threads

In this section, each mod on this board will recommend a topic thread on this board and this choice may change any time. Please note that this is not a competition of any sort. We are only letting you know some of the topic threads that we find interesting and would recommend you pay a visit if you haven't already.

Mod: Cin (Quarterley)
Choice: The Household Chore You Hate the Most
Reason: Even if you love housework, there'd be at least one you'd rather not do.

Mod: Carol (Yellow Mustang Girl)
Choice: Stealing Snakes?
Reason: Because who would be stupid enough to try to steal a poisonous snake!

Name: Mascha
Location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Current Obsession: Agents of SHIELD and the new Two Steps From Hell album.

1. How much rain have you been getting (where you live) thus far in April?
I think less than usual. We had pretty nice weather in April. (looked it up: half the average amount of rain in April )

2. Do you enjoy the rain? Why or why not?
Sometimes. But usually, rain in The Netherlands means drizzling and stupid rain. I LOVE spring/summer thunderstorms though, we had one of those just last week.

3. Which month do you like more? April or May? Why?
Mmm... Hard one. My birthday is in April, so that's a good thing. And I love how things start to bloom and stuff in April. But the May weather is usually better (warmer, more sun, less wind, almost zero chance at night frost opposed to April), and the trees are much greener in May.

4. What is your favorite flower (which blooms in April or May)?
Daffodil, and all kinds of blossom.

5. What do you like best about these two months?
How nature starts to bloom And the smell, springs smells amazing out here.

1. How much rain have you been getting (where you live) thus far in April? I don't know the exact numbers, but we did not get much rain at all. We did get some snow, though.
2. Do you enjoy the rain? Why or why not? I like a light to moderate rain because it helps the plants. However, I don't like the flooding it causes, and sometimes it doesn't smell pleasant outside after a rain.
3. Which month do you like more? April or May? Why? April because it contains my birthday. It's also cooler than May. I like the cooler months, not too hot, not too cold.
4. What is your favorite flower (which blooms in April or May)? Alstromeria
5. What do you like best about these two months? The transition from snow to sunshine.
