My name is Obsequious,

Hi, howya doin'?

I hope you're feelin' fine.

At first I mistook this place for some sort of BS scam/biz-op/message board, but I'm glad I took the time to register and look closer. I am pleasantly surprised to have found an exhaustive, almost bewildering variety of forum categories and topics, and the sheer diversity of data speaks volumes as to this Web community's credibility.

Con artists peddling get-rich-quick schemes or spurious SEO services and techniques simply do not put in the kind of extra work and enthusiastic sharing which results in a collection of forums as huge and seemingly useful as what you folks appear to be building.

I look forward to learning new things and teaching what I know, when (or if) I'm called upon to do so,

Kind Regards,

Obsequious

Welcome Obsequious. This is a great forum and you will enjoy yourself in here as long as you are prepared to accept a degree of conservatism compared to other forums.

as huge and seemingly useful as what you folks appear to be building.

Should be "appear to have built". ;)

you have our permission to start building.

i'm guessing you might have some thoughts to offer in the Community Building and Social Networks forum, for example.

Yes, thanky Phranque (ya get it? That rhymes, right?) and BeeDeeDubbleU!

Thanx especially BeeDee, for being a vigilant guardian of The Queen's English!

I'm wondering if the problem with that paragraph (besides the fact that it's possibly a run-on sentence, and a confusing one at that) might be my use of the word, "what," more than any ambiguity arising from my unusual choice of the present-tense?

Thanks in advance for your opinion on this matter...

I'm reasonably sure Phranque can be safely pronounced "Frank"- it always has been in my head,

Welcome to the forums

Does this mean I have to put some shoes on my feet and refrain from laying a guilt-trip on anybody who's gainfully employed, eats meat, or is not currently smoking marijuana? I suppose this also means I have to try to go for at least an hour without calling anybody "bro," or using words like, "disenfranchised," or "military-industrial complex."

All kidding aside, I do understand the importance of respecting any community's standards, and I'll take that as a cue for me to go and read the board's rules and FAQ's thoroughly enough to avoid wasting people's time with vague discussion titles, off-topic posts in the wrong forums, or questions which have been addressed in older threads numerous times and/or answered in the FAQ's.

I'm reminded of an exasperated boss I once worked for. Whenever he felt I was asking dumb questions and pawning off on him all of the thinking chores, he would say to me, "Answer your own question!"

hi Obsequious, welcome to WebmasterWorld!

yes, please do read the TOS and take it to heart. This is a professional forum, with a very low tolerance for spam, marketing, link drops, whisper campaigns, etc. However we do have a very high tolerance for incredible people, lively discussions, occasional silliness (foo), and information you won't find anywhere else, contributed by the industry's finest.

But don't tread too lightly. if you step over the line, one of the moderators will nudge you gently back again :)

Hey Obsequious!

Man, even if nothing else, you should right away start a new forum "Queen's English". With special focus on that nice vocabulary that You 've to share. I would love to be a student there, You speak Good ;)
