Celticpride* and Sijih , congrats guys. Everyone else please treat them kindly, they are new to the forum please do not scare them off. They are startled by loud noises and pungent smells.

*EDIT: celticpride posted some transphobic shit which is rather unbecoming of any users, let alone moderators, so has been demodded.

This was only the case for the initial batch of mods when the forum was opened, as to start it off with more experienced community members.
