(Re-) Introduce Yourself!

Postby seftimiu » Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:29 pm

I'm technically called Alibi. But everyone calls me Seftimiu. Which is a name I use for log-in purposes because it is pretty much unique. Real name is Barbara. I don't like to say how old I am. I'm 'at that age' now where I want to ignore the number. So just humor me on that score.

Married for almost sixteen years now. I have eight kids. Five of them are stepchildren, three of them are by birth. I still have five kids at home, though to of those are technically adults now. One of them is in college, the other will be starting college probably in January. One is in high school, one is in middle school, and one is in junior high.

The oldest three no longer live with me, of course. The oldest has given me two beautiful grandchildren whom I adore. She's a manager of a fast food joint in another state. The second oldest is in the Navy and will be going to Japan in March. She's currently stationed in Virginia. The third oldest was recently paroled from prison and is the father of a little girl whom I don't get to see. I miss my granddaughter. He is currently working hard to put his life together and I assist in any way possible.

I have cats, dogs, and rats.

I have an Associates in Criminal Justice and I'm a year away from having my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Human Services. Right now, I'm taking Basic Grant Writing and Interview and Interrogation. Soon I'll be taking Social Psychology and Abnormal Psychology. (I'm looking forward to those two classes! WOOT!)

I live in a high crime area and have daily contact with various gang members and instead of watching COPS on television I tend to just look out my window or go sit on the porch. :shifty

:cracked

I like to write fanfiction when I have the time, RP when I have the time, annnnd take naps.

Oh and I need a job. Seriously unemployed. I wanna desk.

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the place to go if you're new and want to introduce yourself but I figured it couldn't hurt.

My name is Panic (or Switch, if you prefer) and I'm a long-time observer of this forum. I'm in my early (or is it mid?) twenties & have been into Marvel Comics and the X-Men since my early teens.

I've always been fond of Nightcrawler, but I also like other X-Men characters such as Iceman, Psylocke, Storm and Magneto. I spend my time
reading, chilling with my awesomely geeky boyfriend, watching science-fiction shows, drawing robots fighting, and playing zombie video games.
In short, I'm a huge nerd. (And Canadian!)

I joined this forum because it's always seemed very friendly and a good environment (unlike online gaming, in my experience). And also
because I'm interested in trying my hand at RPGing. (Though I'm not so sure how to begin doing that, I've read the rules but don't know who to
talk to to get started). If I'm a bit of a newb, I apologize in advance :) I've not much experience on forums.

Thanks for reading!

Hi there, Panic, welcome to the forum!

As for joining the rp you can chat up any of the game planners for it (me, Tears, Bman, Star, Esy, and Slarti). You can almost always find one of us in chat lurking around which is where we play the games and instances as well so u2u any of us with your questions or just hop into chat. We're always glad to have new people around and, as Tears said, there's three of us on right now.

Heya :wave I'm not a mod, just a long time forumite and player in the RP game. I'm known as Pup most of the time, both on and off line. Like the modly types said the game is playing on our own server hosted chat room which they've all linked and you just gotta pop on any time and if anyone's online we're always up for a chat. The chatters are all online pretty regularly and we're an international bunch, so generally there's always someone on.

So pretty much just pop on and say hi, and welcome to the boards :dance (even though my pounce was late :shifty)

LOL welcome to my world, sir. Macbooks, though I love them, they are the bane of my chat-existence.

I would say HM is more suited to help you (he's the Tech Admin. and generally awesome guy) but I would suggest downloading "Conversation" (for free) and check out this section for some help.

I have a macbook as well, and I can never get java to load. Instead, I use an irc client called Conversation. There's also a How to for Pidgin.

It also might be a matter of what Browser you're using. If you are using Firefox on a Mac, take off those blocks. For the Chat page only obviously. If you're using Chrome (as I do), there should be no problems, but again it could be blocks. If you're using Safari, google a good web-browser and download that. (:LOL!)

Hope this was helpful! :?

Okay, I've installed Conversation. Does Nightscrawlers have community? (i.e. who do I have to 'add?')

And thanks, all! You're being exceptionally helpful.

Open Conversation.

File > New > Box shows up, the tab says "Channel". Click that, change it to "SERVER". > type in chat.nightscrawlers.com:6000 > Click "Open".

Now,

in the text bar on the bottom of the main conversation window? Type these words (or just copy and paste them from here): /join #Nightscrawlers

Bam. You should be in. This is how I did it, hope it works for you.

I'd choose "Open & Add to Favorites" instead of just "Open". Then, you won't have to add the server again. If /join #nightscrawlers doesn't work, you can do the same thing you did for the server, but instead make sure the drop-down menu says "Channel". Then, put in "Nightscrawlers" and "Open & Add to Favorites".

Pretty new here. Absorbing as much as I can about Mr. Nightcrawler. Was experiencing some difficulty coming across other Nightcrawler fans until I finally found someone! She linked me here, and now I have alllll the Nightcrawler things to read. I don't forum often, so I may a bit rusty at things.

Only Skin is my username. It's my fave Joanna Newsom song (because I suck a bit at coming up with usernames?). Rebecca is my real name.
Recently got into actually reading comics after realizing that I work entirely too much and was in need of downtime. I have a husband, two children, 3 dogs, and a pet tortoise (named Stagger Lee because it makes me laugh).

But, yes, I still work a lot, but now I have an escape that is enjoyable. Hopefully I'll read a lot here before just posting. So, hey, HI! everyone.

Re: (Re-) Introduce Yourself!

Postby Chaos » Tue May 21, 2013 1:41 pm

First off, hi to people new and old; as promised to several, I'm re-introducing myself.

My name's Chaos, I'm a kind of long-ish standing member of the Nightscrawlers RP and though my post count is low on site, to date, I've played five characters. I was also dubbed the unofficial President of Site on Nightscrawlers.com, winning in the polls by a staggering 1 vote to 0 for the 0 other candidates.

I'm a University student aiming for a teaching qualification IRL, I'm also (not) a member of the SCP Foundation, (because it doesn't exist). I enjoy reading and collecting comics and I'm also an avid fan of anime/J-Culture.

My Youtube fame currently involves just one viral music video and an amature interview, courtesy of 'Ukelolly'. I'm also on DeviantArt and Twitter as a boring m00k who specializes in art, literature, and spouting the odd amusing comment.

I also have a girlfriend who's a relatively well known cosplayer in Germany.

As a note, I've a tendency to be a little satyrical and blunt - if people ever notice me saying snarky things with a huge grin on my cyberfase I'm probably trying to make light of something. Moreover, if I have a valid point and someone's getting mad about it, it's usually an indication I'm right.

No, seriously.

...sometimes. :x

Anyway, I bear no ill-will towards anyone! Unless, you know...I DO. IF I do, I'm usually up front about it. I love being a part of this community because I like to make things, and I like to think I create good stories and loveable, realistic characters. I confess, I don't know how much longer I can be a part of this community given my responsibilities IRL, but those days are still relatively far off. For now, I'm here and happy to be.

Hello again, Nightscrawlers.com. :3

Hi Only Skin! Welcome to the forums! This is *definitely* the place to talk Nightcrawler! Don't be shy about posting/asking questions, most of us here love to answer Night-queries!

Everything you need to know about me is both in little box here..

<--------- That one.

And I've posted it already somewhere on this thread.

Anything else you need to know about me can be found in this gif:

Welcome, Only Skin!

With Nightcrawler dead in canon right now there's not as much activity as there once was, but there are plenty of old threads to read and some current discussions!

I'm a fellow married mom, so it's always good to see another sign on! (We do have a few)

Postby Marijke Rose » Wed Nov 06, 2013 11:36 pm

Hey

I'm Marijke Rose (Say: Mar-EYE-Kuh - it's a Dutch name). I'm a huge fan of the X-Men, and especially Nightcrawler (uh, guess how I found this forum?). I live in Germany and speak both German and English, (guess why I love Nightcrawler? - Uh, no, actually not that, but rather because he's just cool all around!).

That aside, I love metal music - my fave bands are Sonata Arctica, Lordi, Rammstein, Eisbrecher, Nightwish... and also Celtic, like Faun, Santiano, Celtic Women, and more.

I love Horror, action Movies, and Nature documentaries - especially about the deep sea, coral reef, etc.. Come one, some of the most wicked, insane, fascinating creatures are in there - the oceans are an (mostly) undiscovered land. We hardly have a clue what's down there, and are constantly surprised by new findings!

I#m not a big-time Gamer; but am an avid Comicbook reader and cartoon watcher. And am also fascinated with Languages of all kinds. I fluently speak two, and am learning two more. I can also understand a couple languages (mostly, reading - can't speak them, but can read articles in them). I speak English and German; am learning Dutch and Czech; and can read Spanish, Italian and French, and a teeny bit of Polish - can't speak them, unfortunately.

That aside, I also dabble in the arts. I consider myself an artist (quite good), and have tried writing (uh, no so happy with the results there - seems to not be my thing).

Lastly, Nightcrawler totally rocks! I hope he'll appear in another X-Men movie. I know that Alan Cummings has opted out, doesn't want to do it again, but maybe they can find another actor to do it? Doug Jones, for example, doesn't mind spending hours putting on uncomfortable costumes and makeup every day (in fact, it's his thing - Doug Jones played: Abe Sapien {Hellboy}, Abe and the Angel of Death {Hellboy 2}, Pan and the Palemane {Pan's Labyrinthe}, and... okay, just shoot me, as I decided to start writing this, I promtly forgot his other roles!). Not saying that I think Doug Jones should be cast as Nightcrawler, just saying that there are other actors who can deal with the task of 'suiting up' for hours each day to play a character - and, that they should totally bring Nightcrawler back. Besides, if there's anything to be learned by both First Class and Origins, new actors are go. And, seriously, don't pick an actor because "he speaks fluent German", because... uh.. that apparently didn't work so well, as Alan doesn't want to ever do the part again. How 'bout getting an actor that 'gets' the character, and is adaptable enough to learn some German as needed for the role?
For Pan's Labyrinth, Doug Jones did not speak Spanish, but learned a bit, immersed himself - at least learning how to make it sound like he spoke spanish fluently.

The movie makers have so got to bring Nightcrawler back.

Yeah, I'm waiting impatiently to read his return and it will be interesting if they find a way to bring him back into the movie series.
