Since the new ABEAUTIFULLIE.ORG message board link comes directly to this particular forum, I thought it might be nice to give the new folks coming in the “twenty-five cent tour” of the board, as it were. So, if you have arrived here in the A Beautiful Lie forum via the new website and might like to poke around the rest of the boards as well, here you go - I will collect the .25¢ at the end of the tour
*** Proceed to the other areas of this message board [also known as the chaos of this universe] with a little bit of caution and some information tucked under your arm - most of us are rather lovely, but should you fail to pay attention or post without using the search function first... well, some of the people will bring out the n00b word on you. And that's never nice. :/
*** Some suggestions:
- When picking a user name, avoid anything that contains Jared, Shannon, Tomo, Leto or derivitives thereof. Seriously.
[And if you just registered using one of the 4 words listed and are now reading this, please consider abandoning that name immediately and re-register as something else. Because any of those 4 words in your nickname may cause you much grief on the boards. Some people will come down on you like a ton of bricks, and they will never stop. Trust me on this one.]
- Read much and post little the first day or two as you figure out the lay of the land
- Use the search button before asking a question or making a new thread
- Avoid bumping really old threads just to make a comment
- Remember, it’s the internet... keep your humor with you at all times!

Old forum threads for your reference. READ ONLY.
I highly suggest that before posting to a thread, that you A. Read the first post/page to get the reference of the original post and to see how hold it is and B. Read the last page to see where the discussion went and the last time anyone posted on it. Posting OMG I SO AGREE WITH YOU on a thread that has not had any activity in 5 years is kinda awkward.
This thread is a good place to say hello and test the ropes, as they say

NEW MEMBERS, please look here before you ask questions
A thread in the Pantheon you might enjoy:
abeautifullie.org here and now... a substitute until the real deal appears
How To Join The Echelon It's super simple, look inside!
Again... to our new people - please keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times until the ride comes to a complete stop - Welcome Aboard! Dare I say it? What the heck... Welcome to the Universe.
------------------------------------------------------------------------Oh… for those coming in to say “wow look at how everyone has jumped on the bandwagon” [pardon the pun] here are two old threads for your viewing pleasure… some of us have been on the bandwagon since before there was one. Heck, some of us have been doing conservation/green things since before there even WAS a band called 30 Seconds To Mars!
The second one in particular has some good tips and ideas for going green as well.
