Hello, True, and welcome to AW. :)

Sometimes the post counts don't work right for new members, and they go way up for no reason. It's some kind of glitch, I think. It usually gets straightened out within a day or two.

Anyway, hope you enjoy your time here.

Welcome!!! Just a little FYI, you will find that the ORPCC is a great place to meet new friends and get a few rep points as well! AW is full of great people, especially those whose names include barn yard animals. ;)

This newbie looks like trouble. I say we cut our losses and ban her now.

Yeah, you know I wondered about that, SK.

I noticed that truelyana had quite a few posts there. Glad you explained it.

You will need one of these before you jump:

In case you couldn't tell, he's just kidding, truelyana. He likes to roll out his thunder early to scare new members, but he's really a softy at heart.

We'll have your post count straightened out in no time. Hope you're enjoying the boards. :)

You sound like trouble, too, SK. I'm keeping my eye on you.

Did I hear someone call "Trouble"?

Another word of caution, Ana, in case you haven't been scared away yet: Never trust a member who doesn't use smiley icons in their posts. It's an obvious sign that they can't express themselves properly and use words instead of symbols to convey meaning.

Be careful out there. :) ;) :D :tongue

Hey! Quit confusing me! I've been staring at the timestamps for 5 minutes, thinking, is the board software messed up? Did it skip a year?

I'm a little late, but...
:hi: Hi newcomer :D

Make sure you check out the Bewares and Background Checks board. :)

And for fun, once you learn about rep points, you'll want to join the Obsessive Rep Point Checkers Club thread. ;)

You are so right. And I mostly hear it from the mods. ;)

Um... welcome, Truelyana! You seem like such a nice... um... newbie.

Welcome Truelyana. You seem really sweet. Maybe, one day, we can be facebook friends too.

:)

p.s. - When they fix your post count, can I have some of your extra posts?

Hi, truly. I'm so glad I read all of these posts and found out what ORPCC meant. All these unknowns confuse me something awful.
