Hello
Thank you for bumping this up and I understand because of the warm welcome. I'm happy you have been welcomed.
Well, it's good for newbies to have this option especially if they are shy and they need a boost of confidence

Thanks for letting us know, Brienna.

It was different for me when I joined many years ago. While there were less members and boards back then, I still felt intimidated and a thread like this would have helped. I remember I got told off for double posting. But everyone is generally nice and kind so I kept coming back.

I got told off for supposedly making a drug reference. The mod wasn't aware that some Canadians call a winter hat a toque, and thought we were referencing something else.

Is the word toque also used for some kind of drug? Never heard of the word, btw.

I also felt very welcomed at the boards I first visited! If I had felt somewhat lost, which I can totally image with so many boards and so many members/moderators etc, and if I wouldn't have been this familiar with forums already, I would definitely have visited this thread and a first friend (FFFF )

Toke means to smoke, usually drug related. she thought toque was a creative spelling to try and fool her.

^^^^ That's hilarious! I always call them toques too.

Like for me in Canada on my end it's cheques, not check...
