Didn't know that either. Keep in mind that it doesn't save the content of your post if you've already entered text into the box when doing this!

@Region Philbis,
Hello -- seems I've been doing a lotta welcoming lately. But more is good.

I am jespah (or jes or jespie). I am also married to Region Philbis who posted a lil above me on this page.

I am the Project Manager for this site. I live in the Brighton section of Boston and work doing Social Media and PR for a startup robotics firm, plus I'm a freelance writer, when I'm not doing A2K stuff.

We know this is not an easy transition for you. But, as they say, give it a chance. You may be pleasantly surprised. We certainly hope you will be.

I'm an early a2k member with a zillion posts, and a lot of interests. In no particular order, land use, architecture, landscape architecture, art, politics, history (there I am mostly a reader), philosophy somewhat (mostly a reader of others posts), travel, film, food (and food, food, food), pets, animals in general. I'm a woman in her later sixties, and live in New Mexico.

My present avatar is of my all time favorite dog, who died a few years ago but whose photo I get a kick out of seeing. (See... he's typing in the avatar)

@ossobuco,
I saw a Pembroke Corgi today, same colors as Pacco, and I thought of you.

Hi Philosophers,
I'm Eorl, Australian humanist agnostic with extremely atheistic tendencies.
I don't know much about anything, but I find if I throw out an ignorant opinion (as is the modern way) there'll be no shortage of folks here willing to better inform me.
My avatar is a self-portrait oil-on-canvas painted during a creatively frustrating period of my life.

or, if you really want to reply to a specific post and read the entire discussion you can right-click on reply all, select open in a new tab, select reply in the original tab and go back and forth between tabs - writing in one, reading the other one.

If one was so inclined...

Hi all, I am new to both forums pretty much. I am enjoying the broad variety in topics here. I love philosophy to a certain degree (all things in moderation), I also enjoy web development, forum software, gaming, art, graphics design. I am enjoying watching how the moderators handle this transition and the development of new communities in general. I am glad to be here as it all goes down Razz

I was new to Philforum when it switched over, so despite having to learn a new format, I'm not feeling terribly discombobulated. I'm a chemistry student, and my hobby is philosophy.

Recently I've been rather taken with Nietzsche, Hegel, and have finally felt that I had the requisite background to pick up the "serious" philosophy of science books written in the 20th century, so I'm getting through those. I also used to act for a living, and so I love aesthetics.

Who wants to dance with me?

My name is <ole - you can call me mk or mister kitten
I'm a high school student leaving a second year (please cool out with the vulgar language...members who use). In my spare time I write, draw, sing, annoy, read, think, explore, and practice karate. I'm most allied with a combination of Existential and Sophist philosophy. I think drugs are horrible.

I am a terrible dancer

I am ACB from Philforum, and live near London, UK. (The letters are just my initials - nothing cryptic!) My particular areas of philosophical interest are metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of mind, and logic. I have never studied philosophy formally except at a basic level, but have done some sporadic reading on the subject. I generally favour an analytical approach to philosophical problems, and am particularly fascinated by logical paradoxes.

My areas of expertise are classical music (I play and teach piano) and English grammar. I occasionally write music and poetry, and enjoy wordplay.

I expect I will find plenty of interesting material in the new forum.

Hello to all you philosophers..
I'm a Canuck too, from Alberta. I joined abuzz then a2k way back when, but I've been kind of sporadic in my posting over the years. I don't know know much about philosophy but I'd love to learn. Slainte.

Hi I am ding_an_sich (trans. "thing-in-itself"). I am a student double majoring in Secondary Ed. History and Philosophy. Most of my philosophy steams from Kant, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, and Wittgenstein. I am willing to talk about things that I can speak of intelligibly. I also try to write clearly and present my thoughts in a clarified way (unlike those charlatans that scour the forum from time to time). If you mess up, I will correct you; and if I mess up, you can correct me. The relationship is mutual.

I can be silly sometimes, so in that case just play along.

Good day.
