Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hello, my name is Joel Szasz, but you can call be by my screen name JES, or by my first name Joel, if you prefer. As for what brought me to this site, of all forums, well we can blame (or thank) the Subspace Comms for that. Whoever is in charge of the approval process there isn't very good at it, and whoever designed the approval process was inconsiderate or not thinking straight, because I couldn't find any information on how long the approval process was supposed to take, or even how to contact to administrator to ask how much longer the process was supposed to take. I can only hope this isn't an indications of things to come for the Subspace Comm, because there is a lot of good artwork there, and I'd hate to think how this might effect the websites affiliated with the Subspace Comm. My apologies if I just seem to be angsting, but you would want to too after waiting about 3 weeks with no reply, you would probably feel like doing so as well. Besides, if my only reason for joining TrekBBS were out of spite to the Subspace Comm, than I wouldn't have gone through the trouble of registering.
The reason I joined was that I like sketching different starship designs (mostly Starfleet at the moment), and I love looking at other peoples designs, and I plan to start scanning some of my sketches on a weekly basis to show them to other people, refine them, and eventually do at least my favorites in Illustrator. Overall, I hope to be inspired, inspire, meet a lot of new alike minds, make a lot of new acquaintances, and make at least a few new friends. Now, once your done reading/responding to this post, for those of whom are interested, I willing be posting the first of what will probably be many of my work for all to view.

@Kai "the spy": Thank you. Seems only right that I return the same, so uh, welcome to you too.

Not that I'm really a newbie when it comes to forum blogging, this is just the first Trek forum that I've ever been on.

@PikeFan: More friendly compared to where? Just curious.

Well, technically, one has to have been in a place already to welcome someone to it, but I appreciate the sentiment. And, please, excuse my nitpicking. It's a childhood trauma. Both my parents were teachers. Couldn't help it but pick up their smart-assness.

Not that I'm really a newbie when it comes to forum blogging, this is just the first Trek forum that I've ever been on.
I'm no newbie to forums in general, either. Isn't even my first Trek forum, but my first international (aka English language) one.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hello! I thought I had introduced myself already, but I guess not. I love Star Trek in general, but my favorite is TNG, which I grew up watching. I love all the movies as well. I am actually currently rewatching all of TNG straight through, via Netflix. <3

The official Trek boards. I stopped posting in the VOY boards a LONG time ago. The attitude there was if you like Chakotay or J/C you're not allowed to post without being attacked....

You joined exactly two days after I did, so I can say 'Welcome' without contradicting myself. Ah, life is good.

By the way, welcome, jeskawest!

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

I'm brand spanking new here. Been a Trekkie since 1990. One of the first episodes I watched were "The Best of Both Worlds" and I was hooked. Continued to watch DS9, loved that as well. Watched VOY on and off for reasons I wouldn't go into here. Never watched any of the ENT episodes because my life had become too busy by then.

Like almost all of the movies for what they were. Doesn't have a huge issue with the JJ Abram reboot of the originals since I never had great allegiance to it to begin with. I'm very glad to be here.

One question though. How do people choose to become ranked in the different species? Most people here have Federation ranks, but I think I saw a few Cardassian ranks here and there. Thanks.

Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

@infinix: Hi there, and welcome aboard.

@PikeFan: Nononono, you joined a full ten days after me, so you seriously can't welcome me. ... Except that you didn't and just said 'hi'. Yes, uhm, ... Hi!


Am I thinking too much about this stuff?
