    G'day people!
    I've just joined CPA, and I took my sweet time doing it too!
    I've heard about his site for ages, how great it is etc, but I've never been, finally, Duke (i dunno what he's called here) recommended me.
    I have a lot of respect for Duke from 'talking' to him at Mtgnews.com, (a site which DID have a cool message board, kinda gone to crap now) and when he says something is good, I'm inclined to check it out.
    And so, here I am, I hope this site is all i've heard it to be, so far it looks like it is :)

    You'll love it.

    By the way, I'm called DÛke here too, now you know :).

    I already welcomed you and bothered you with email/PMs, so, I'll leave it up to the people of the CPA to welcome you now.

    Nevertheless, WELCOME!

    Ah! I remember you! :) Welcome aboard. I'm Nivelimac from MtgNews, as your probably can guess from my overuse of words with far too many syllables for my own benefit...

    Have fun!

    /begin{nickname speech}
    Ok, here's the deal. I'm your friendly neighborhood nickname guy. :) See those neat-o little orange nicknames people have under their names? If you Private Message me (see the button at the bottom of this post with 'PM' on it?) with a request for a specific one, I'll give it to ya'. :)
    /end{nickname speech}

    (Side note: Yes, I am aware the nicknames are no longer orange. :) Yes, I know I should update the Speech. I'm not gonna, though- At this point, I feel like it's become a classic of sorts, worthy of preservation in its current form. Besides, nothing like confusing the new guys, huh?)

    While Duke(pronounce dukey we found out) is the resident lover, and Zadok is the Nickname dude, I'm the Pie guy. You want food come to me. Also, as part of the Welcoming process I have a little tradition I do...

    I used to go to MTGnews too. Then I left becuase everyone was a selfish dumbass and just plain sucked.

    Any way, in most cases I would tell you to worship me for being your spream and utmost mighty god. But I don't feel like typeing that much so, yeah.

    Welcome!

    Darn it, Zadok beat me to writing his own speech. You see, normally I run in here and steal Zadok's speech before he can post it himself. That way, no one makes fun of my boring messages to new members (I think "welcome!" is original, don't you?). It also irks Zadok just a little, which is always a plus. But he had to go and post the speech himself. Now, I have nothing special to say to you. So, in short:

    Welcome!

    Hi! I'm one of the insane CPA Members!
    You'll like the CPA once you get used ta all the psychos who have escaped from their straight jackets and are currently running amok throughout the boards.

    Am I the only person who has NOT ever been to the MTGNews boards? I feel I'm missing something, because everyone seems to like those boards so much! ;)
  11. Deadman New Member

    Wow, I can't beleive how cool this place is!
    All you guys are insane! (That's good)
    I love it here!

    Ahem.. Here are the traditional CPA rules.
    1: Worship the great donkeys
    2: Make many home-made cards
    3: Be insane, if your not, you don't belong here
    4: There is no fourth rule

    OI YOU!
    If I wasn't dead already that woulda REALLY HURT!
    You're just lucky I'm a corpse, otherwise there woulda been REAL TROUBLE!
    I would've been forced into typing an entire post ALL IN CAPITALS! And they woulda been REALLY NASTY!
    Not only that, I would've ended EVERY SINGLE SENTANCE with an EXCLAMATION MARK!
    Oh, wait, I've done that already!
    Damn!
