Hi there, Quark.
*snicker* Why does everybody today think they would have to read such a monstrosity? I mean, not the biggest thread out there anyway, but... who would want to read 500 pages of greetings only? :3
Anyway, welcome to the board!
Here, have a newbie-pack, consisting of
a TF Gun
a squirrel teddy
a sixpack of unlabled soda
a cookie in shiny wrapper
and a dead fish.
And from me you get a TFG mod kit for shooting portals; always handy to escape mad science laboratories!
Enjoy your stay and don't be frightend ^^

Uh. Noob question...

Am I allowed to glomp any newbie and give them a newbie pack at any time? Or do I have to wait a bit?

Hi! Again. Um, thanks for all the stuff, but now I'm confused as a banana in a space shuttle about what this whole inventory business is. Am I supposed to post something like this in my signature?


Inventory:
a TF Gun (and a mod kit for shooting portals from Ineluki, apparently without mdm's permission)
a squirrel teddy
a sixpack of unlabled soda
a cookie in shiny wrapper
a dead fish

Stuff from Dreestith? That's a lot of clones stuff here...
Dreestith's Bandages
A piece of Seruna's Nevermelting ice
Chrono's Bandana
Zen's shirt

unending cooler of canadian beer (from mandros)
Probably.

Okay, confusion clear up time.
First of all, MDM, calm down, please. I'm sure zt107 had no malicious intend here.
There's a list who normally hands out what, to be found here: http://editthis.info/egs_mayhem/Newbie_packs
Where there are among others both MDM's mod and mine registered.
Feel free to add your personal addition. Also: 1 addition per user please. This was stated somewhere, but I can't remember where. *shrug*

@ Quark: you are under no obligation to post your inventory anywhere. Personally, I think it just clogs signatures, but that's just my personal opinion here. It's more for RPing down in mayhem anyway - and as a little personality test, if you will ;)

Yay, I'm not confused anymore! But yeah, I see, now.

To whomever might read my previous post for any reason (or none!), please disregard all information in said post as fact. :)

Thanks, Ineluki! Now I understand this thread _and_ Mayhem! Haha!

Edit:

Right, and if I ever venture into Mayhem, I should display my:

Inventory:
a TF Gun [and a mod kit for shooting portals (from Ineluki)]
a squirrel teddy
a sixpack of unlabled soda
a cookie in shiny wrapper
a dead fish

Stuff from Dreestith? That's a lot of clones stuff here...

eh, in most RPs you create an indipendent char with his own equipment anyway. for loose RPs and/or your forum avatar you may want to use it.

Its based upon the amount of posts you have.
I beileve its.

0~50 - Keenspot spotter
51~200 Keepspot supreme
200~1000- Grand Poobah keenspot
1000-4999Keenspot despot
5000-10000 Keenspot Juggernaut (Entirely unsure of base)
10001-79999 Keenspot deity
Lomgren - Keenspot singularity (I think its actually 80000+, but meh, he's better than that)
Edit: These are unofficial, I'm not entirely sure if there is something else with a higher post count from 1000-10000 (in between the two, obviously)

Fixed.

Of course, there are some other ranks, which are assigned to specific people. For example, Gav, the founder/head honcho of Keenspot, is Keenspot Whipping Boy. Dan is Meddling Squirrel. There are also some people who are not ranked and fall under the category of Sleazebag Spammer.

Umm, I take it that we're supposed to update it? There are far fewer things on there than I've been given, but I'll add what I give.

Speaking of which, the newbies get an Infinite Bag of Dice! Please, no more incidents like the one of two pages ago, if I hadn't flipped that thing right-side-out right away, things would have gotten messy. There are in infinite number of dice in there, ya know.

On the other hand, I'm proud of handing out what is probably the second...third...fourth most mayhem causing item of all time, topped only by the TF gun, the unlabeled soda, and the pack of what could be gum.
Mayhem: We're not crazy, you're just too sane.

Current avatar: That would be Tyrion. Or his head, at any rate.
You can find my inventory, games run, and characters played on my wiki page. It is horribly out of date, though.
I also has a deviantART!

*wakes up as a delayed reaction to PixelHead777's glomp* Where am I? What does d mean? *reads old posts* Ah, it would appear that I have somehow been shoveled into the Infinite Bag of Dice while I slept. Also the dead fish I was sleeping on smells kind of funky. Oh well.

Thanks to PixelHead777, The kool, ChronosCat, and Aeg'air for the neat gifts.

Welcome to everyone who was new after me: ChibiCarrera, Tybalt, Voldine, and AStrangeQuark. This will be my first attempt at giving out a unique gift (I hope this is okay). I present to each of you 5 paper cups each in the shape of an origami scops owl. They are great for staying up late and rarely spill.
