Hello everyone and welcome to The Newbie Lounge! This is your go-to thread for chatting with and getting to know other members, new or old. If you're a new member and want a place to stop by to get familiar with the forum this would be a great little place to begin your adventure.. or perhaps you're a more longtime member that wants to greet our fantastic new faces? The possibilities are endless here. To the new members who don't feel comfortable posting an introduction, you're welcome to instead introduce yourself here. We've no preference here on Lake Valor. If you'd like to chat with others in a more general, off-topic setting then stop by The Lunch Table! For anyone looking to discuss Pokémon we have a great area called The Union Room as well. And last (but certainly not least) is our Akihabara Corner, the perfect thread for chatting it up about anime and manga. Please remember to follow the below very easy to understand guidelines when posting here, though, so we can ensure everyone has the best experience: ~ Follow the official forum rules. They're there for a reason. ~ Please ensure your posts are at least three words long! This is to cut down on spam. ~ Treat everyone with respect! We're a big happy family here so please don't be rude to others, as should be obvious. And that's it. Chat away! Remember, we highly encourage you to make your own introduction thread, or it will be harder for others to get to know you better.
