    Welcome!

    Ignore them ^, they always do that. Really, perpetually. It's kinda weird.
    If you haven't been here before I recommend the 'Newbies Guide' to help get you started, or you can just join the insanity

    Hi Ms. Mariketa.
    I pretty new myself but trust me, this forum
    is a pretty nice resource.
    I'm currently working on my first serious project!
    But don't worry.
    If that doesn't make me famous I could always start a fire
    then rescue everyone, then be in the news then have my own reality show:
