    What, did Q give you a chance to start over? ;)

    Hello & welcome to TrekBBS: with pleasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. It is not for the faint-hearted ;)

    Oh, come on, we're not *that* bad! (but propably worse :D)
    Welcome to craziness, Steven. Don't let them scare you. We're mostly harmless (btw, wasn't there a poster of that name or am I confusing TrekBBS with a different board?)
    It's more likely to get a goblet of blood wine here than getting a bloody nose.
    And when you're in awe of some oldtimer, have a look at the old threads in the Redshirt Lounge and see for yourself what gawky newbies they used to be :devil:

    welcome :)
    I am not sure if there is a minimum of posts required, but be sure to visit the Redshirt Lounge when it shows up for you (the link will be displayed in the index page, right under this forum).
    I can totally recommend it to all new members. It's fun, relaxed, you get to know each other and make friends. And none of the higher ranks can see it so that you needn't worry about being silly or asking something foolish.
    And the lounge moderators are always the nicest Mods on the whole board :adore:

    Here is a list of the ranks and their privileges: http://www.trekbbs.com/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_promotions


    And if there's something you'd like to know, don't hesitate to ask. We do have the inevitable idiot who'll bully you for asking something "stupid" but the vast majority here are nice and friendly posters.
    Once you have 28 posts and have been a member here for 2 weeks, you can send private messages, so that you needn't ask publicly if you're not sure how the question will be received.

    Then whatever you do, get out of here and stick to the Star Trek boards.

    And never, never, NEVER go into TNZ.

    Trust me. You'll be happier.:bolian:

    TNZ's alright.

    I won't lie. It's taken fifteen years off my life and given me a nervous tic. But it's a fun ride if you know what to expect.

    No big danger, then: as sharks need saltwater, putting them in a pond would be their death sentence.

    LOL sorry, as a water biologist I just couldn't resist (rhyme unintended and unavoidable)

    Couldn’t we put salt in the pond along with the sharks?

    Bull sharks can live in fresh water. They will find you and kill you regardless of what water you live in.

    It is a land that lives by the rule of Nietzsche: what does not kill you makes you stronger.

    It is killing me, though. :p
