Introduce yourself here! If you wish, of course. It's not like it's mandatory or anything!

Anyhow, I'm the admin, isn't that exciting? I'm 20/f/Saskatchewan. (Well, as of this posting.) I'm in post sec studying chem and computer science, but I balance off the analytical side by dabbling in art, writing and comics!

Hello, I am rjm1940. I am a 69 year old male. I live in Arkansas, USA. I am a retired insurance salesman. I enjoy reasonable science fiction and I prefer TV shows that stress character relationships. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about them.

I have no idea what the h-scroll is or how it might be broken.

I do not see a spell check and I really need all the help I can get with my spelling problems.

Oh, sorry, h-scroll = horizontal scroll. It means that I'll kick anyone's arse who decides to post something like thiiiiiiis but more long and more obnoxious. Or if they post an image that does so. Y'know, like on the CBS forums where Kalli's picture totally broke the page and we couldn't read stuff?

As for the spellcheck thing... I'll see if I can get one.

Aethre, you are the best. A responsive admin! I am shocked!

I understand h-scroll and I will be sure not to break this h-scroll. I certainly do not want to be punished by a Canadian Girl.

The spell check probably is not important to many of the "writers' because all of you seem to know how to spell words I do not even recognize, but my ability to post is limited because I spend much of my time trying to think of words I can spell or at least get close enough for the spell check to recognize the word I am attempting to use.

My first comment really should have been, I like the way you have organized this Forum and I like the colors you have selected. This is the most attractive Forum I have seen.

Now I am wondering if I am posting on the wrong thread. This is really not an introduction. Please feel free to move this comment to any other thread you deem more appropriate.

Hi all,

For those of you that don't know (does that include anyone here?) my name is Sarah, I'm currently 24 and living in gorgeous Virginia, USA. I am, obviously, a huge fan of EH, and one of the 'writers' that he's referring to.

(And Roy, stop thinking you're the only one with problems. I can't spell to save my life!)

Well, you can probably get a spell check for your browser, Roy... Maybe, I dunno. Is IE seriously still not coming with a built in spellcheck?

As for the colour scheme and such... that's actually just the preinstalled default that you're using (yes, I did just pull a creeper move and used my admin powers to see which theme you're using). It is pretty nice for a default, though!

(However, I prefer fixed width designs cuz I use massive monitors with large resolutions and, well, it just hurts to have the text stretched that far.)

As for spelling... I can only spell cuz I have a spellchecker. And, sorry, I couldn't find a spellcheck mod for phpBB3 T.T

Heyall! I'm Kalli, (female,) living in Toronto (an awesome city :)) And the only reason I can spell either is because of the spell checker. Hell, I always spell "Twilight", "Thighlight" XD (Fail!) I'm a hugest fan of Eleventh Hour, and I ♥ Jacob!!! :D

I DO NOT NEED A SPELL CHECK!

I accessed this site with my AT&T Yahoo Browser. This browser probably has a spell check but I have not been able to find it. This is the last time I will use this browser to access this site.

I also use IE8 and it does have a spell check. I will use IE8 in the future to access this site and I will be able to use the spell check included with this browser. So this is probably the last time anyone will be to find a spelling error in my messages.

Aethre you are wise beyond your years. Thank you for reminding me of the IE8 spell check. You told me this before, but I had forgotten.

Hi, I am Kellie. I come from the Midwest and have a beautiful little boy. I also have 3 dogs, a gecko, and about 30 squirrels that not only visit me every day, but have names. I love EH and 24, and will often be found watching a movie from the 30's or 40's. I love B&W. I am so happy for this show as I have been lucky enough to meet all of you. Definitely worth the OCD that has resumed due to the EHRC.
