New Subscriber Intros

Let us know who you are.

Wednesday, October 19, 2005 by Lantec | Discussion: New Users

Just an idea to throw out there....what with the subscription drive going on.
How about a Sticky for new SUBSCRIBERS to intro themselves. You see this on a lot of the sites out there. Something to give people a way to kinda ease into the community without having to worry about stepping on toes or feel like they're intruding into threads, etc.

That kind of post might be able to catch up to Xaltec's "Word Association" fairly quickly.

So for you noob SUBSCRIBERs post a little something about yourself. You know....real name, bank account & credit card numbers, SSN, home address, etc. (just kidding)

Thanks gfcentral002. Nice car. I'd test drive but I'm about as far from Alaska as I can get and still stay in the US.

Thanks Tycus, Stargazing, and Moderator CerebroJD. Sorry I didn't keep up yesterday but I've been working toward deadlines on three different projects for noon today and watching Wilma for any slight shift north in projected path.

I'm Mike. I do Civil Engineering for Land Development in Central Florida. I've been chained to a desktop computer ever since there was such a thing and I am a customization addict. (But that's for another thread)

Hi everyone, my name is Todd and I am from Alberta, Canada. I have been coming to this site for years and today I finally signed on as an Object Desktop subscriber. The creative talent on here is incredible! I have been enjoying coming to this site and downloading mainly themes for Windowblinds and Icon Packager and today was the day that I decided to join as a paid member. I know, I should have a LONG time ago, but better late then never. Best $49.99 ($60Cdn) I have spent.

Hi Geoff, Welcome in. You've got a lot of company with quite a few from the UK here. Watch out for Fuzzy Logic. Green blood, pointed'll recognize him. Not sure what the US equivalent of a sprayer is. At home it's usually a male cat.

Hi to you too Todd, I'm from Florida, so I have a lot of experience with Canadians. Glad you made the plunge. Now that you have all the software follow Hog56's lead and start skinning.

I look forward to seeing contributions from you both.

Hi, I am Brad, a 43 year old junior high teacher of Spanish and beginning Web design. Part of the design class deals with creating graphics and such. We use Fireworks and when I found this site in April I had my advanced students create some OD icons for the school computers (I absolutely love OD). They do a pretty decent job after being taught by an artisticly challenged person. My students who joined here are Oswaldorojos2010, Gordon24, Macrophage, and Stevenmel.

I am always looking for help with teaching my students. If you know of any tutorials that can be done with Fireworks (I've found some by googling) or where to get ideas on what to teach them, I would love to hear about it. I subscribed because I see an honest company with good people that provide a great environment for sharing and learning. Thanks so much.

I would also appreciate any comments (suggestions) on the stuff I submit so I can get better and hopefully teach better.

Thanks all!
