I am new here and I have some questions.

My first on is what this site is all about. I have seen a couple friends on it and yeah I just decided to come and see for myself.

My Second one is what can I do? I don't want to get into trouble or get blocked or anything like that.

So...Thanks for replying!

I know I have more, but I ain't sure yet.

Hi Simulated, and welcome to this forum!

Firstly, this forum well.. Is about science really! You can ask any broad question related to science you want, and you can nearly 100% expect someone here to answer it for you! We have some really high-level people here, with PhD's and stuff!! Very cool.. Heehee.. Oh, and the people here are extremely nice, and without a doubt, I think it's the best science forum. [;)]

Second question, what can you do... Well, there are lots you can do.. Main thing is the science, note the title of this forum "ThenakedSCIENTISTS", but that is not all to it! You can go to the chat section and talk about anything you want. Write in Diary entries, express you feelings, get to know everyone here! You can express your issues and anything you want over there.

[;)] Hope you have fun.

We also ask that you keep your language decent and non combative if you should have an opinion that is not that of another posting theirs. We should all try to be civil to each other and if you and or another forum member disagree about something and it is becoming more of a tense subject we ask that you move your conversation at that point to your personal emails and keep the disagreement to yourselves. We want to be able to offer others a calm relaxed open forum which allows for a diverse set of views.

I welcome you to the forum! If you have any questions refer to your registration or a moderator . We will get back to you with a response as soon as we can .

I hope you enjoy the forum!

He's OK - I spoke to him a week or so back (can't recollect when now) - he has other things in his life, but I'm sure he will be back.

As Karen mentioned, he often actually felt embarrassed about having the highest post count - he likes to feel anonymous, and lost in the crowd (not that it is ever his nature to be so, but then we often crave for that which we seem ever least to be able to achieve).

Who knows, maybe when it gets to the slack season in his business, he may have time to come back.
