    Hello forum gamer

    I am glad you decided to join us. This thread should tell you everything you need to know to succeed in proper forum gaming...okay well not really but it should help you jump in and get to know some of us regulars and some of the things you may see here.

    First some general "rules" for forum games. We are here to have fun. A lot of the time this can and will involve picking on each other but it is done in good spirits. We want to not put anyone down and try to keep post at a PG-13 level max. If you see someone who may be going too far please use the button to have a mod look at it. Seeing as we are here to have fun nobody should feel excluded or put down by anyone else here Also while we are all having fun here the forum rules still apply

    Alright now that that is out of the way [takes off badge, gets off soapbox]

    Really the point of forum games is to have fun. I know we can seem like a close knit group of idiots at times but we are willing to accept any and all outsiders. To help you get use to us we will try to explain some of the memes you will see around here and some of our terminology.

    I will start with terminology, I am sure I will miss many things but I'm sure someone will go and explain more later

    When you ninja someone you reply to a thread someone else is replying to before they do causing their post to look out of place or just wrong. Many forum games have you reply to the previous post and when this happens it can cause some odd looking posts at times. When someone ninjas you then you have been ninja'd

    You may see some forum gamers referred to as otaku (myself included) this is a term for someone who enjoys watching anime or manga.

    Now for some meme. We often use some sort of nickname or use corruptions of an avatar for other forum gamers, I look at this as terms of endearment . I will only try to explain one about me and let others explain the rest.

    You may see someone call me ponyboy or horseboy this is because for a long time I used an avatar of a horse that asked "Got root?"

    I hope this longwinded post helped in some way, please feel free to elaborate on any already discussed memes or terms and add additional ones to this thread as you see fit. Also if you have any questions about a meme or term you see us throwing around ask about it. Most importantly have fun.

    Also if you would like to chat with other gamers and not have to play games join us in the http://androidforums.com/lounge/501189-forum-gamers-lounge.html :D

    I will contribute some memes and stuff

    9to5 publishing house : 9to5cynic is an imaginary puublisher who is known to publish all the nonsense stuff produced by forum games . His latest book is romance with perl by rico . The publishing house never makes a profit .he gets the money to publish from making internet ponzi schemes .

    That cursed/bloody/damned/annoying ninja : me I.e. karandpr . I like to ninja everyone .

    The bear : I had a non anime :eek: bear as an avatar .the name stuck .it was cute.

    The mole collective : it has been theorized by 9to5 that I am actually a bunch of moles working day and night to ninja people

    The man eating mole-rat : 9to5 cynic who is rumored to be cheif of lol operations for the mole collective.

    The bloody lolrus : 9to5 again . His avatar is strange...

    Sharon : agentc13 . Sharon carter is agent 13 :p .the name is stuck .

    Pinko bunny : a communist rabbit . Also agent 13 on weekends

    Yeahjakker : supposed to be fusion of yeahha an highjakker .the dancing pony man

    Performing a stinky : Playing a forum game alone and double posting .

    Rusta mon : earlymon for some reason .

    Melim : a cynical being who always gets ninjaed for some reason .

    Phew ,some more others tomorrow

    Thought of some more, everyone can add if they can think of something that is missing ;)

    FG - Forum Game(s)

    Pulling a stinky - Playing a FG by yourself (double or multi posting) Stinky Slinky would do this often

    Ninja edit - After you post quickly hitting the edit button to change what you said and avoid showing that someone ninja'd you

    More coming soon...or as soon as I remember ;)

    Getting daleked - When more than one person ninja's you (really I made that up and hoped it would catch on, not sure on the reception yet, but I won't let it go!), also daleks move pretty slowly most of the time, so it fits.

    "bones" or "boney" - marc12868 because of his silly avatar.

    LateMon -EarlyMon (a nickname from stinky)

    Yeahha rides a scooter.

    Mini-marc - MRCMidnight

    marc's posse - MRCM, Mobygunz, and anyone else that followed him here (i.e. folks from the Triumph area that got sucked in by his spam), even though they really all were following me (because marc followed me).

    I guess this could be of help to some....

    In the AFRPFG thread, we're playing a bit of a game. I'd link to it, but you know, dial up.

    Well, we each have characters,
    T'resezk (or something like that... t'res) = Karandpr
    Smith = Agent13
    Sparky = Anti.......ER ??? sorry amigo. no idea what your name actually is ;)
    Cain - 9to5cynic, me.

    Also, ;D is a new emoticon we're trying to make popular, so use it. It's like ;) + :D See... it's really nice. I think only Melim and myself use it though... :(

    Everything else has been discussed to my knowledge.
    look at how far we've come from the old days. </nostalgia>
    But that's the great thing about FG, it's very dynamic. Things evolve. We'll come back stronger than ever, and with new little creations that will alienate people, then we'll explain them.

    Stick around, or don't. If you do stick around, it's hard to leave. ;D
