Hey folks! Right off the bat I apologize on 2 fronts:

1. I've already been a member for almost two full weeks - hope it's not too late to post here; I've been laser focused on mostly one forum (I'll let you guess which one) until I wandered in here today,
2. I've lurked off and on in several forums through the years but finally took the plunge here, in what looks to be the most active, vibrant Android community I've seen. Now I'm sorry that I waited so long!

My nonextensive smartphone history: Droid X --> Droid Razr Maxx HD --> Droid Turbo (now a proud 1-week owner). Love my phone, but respect to everyone here! I'm not a Motorola/Droid fanboy, uh... no, really... p I'm having a great time so far interacting, picking up some good tidbits, and chipping in where I can.

Thank you to all of the moderators and the whole Android Central team, you all make it happen! Now everyone let's chat, shall we!?!

Welcome to the forums. Glad you are liking the device.

Thank you to all of the moderators and the whole Android Central team, you all make it happen!

Regular users do this as well, by reporting questionable or blatantly bad posts, by adhering to the forums rules, and finally being pleasant to everyone (we all were new once. Even Bobby Flay at one point was a student when it came to cooking).

Late to the party?
Never.
Arrive when you want.
Leave when you're done.
Just help us clean up before you go. ;)

A belated welcome to Android Central! Do not annoy Happy Fun Ball.:p (Classic SNL fake ad!)

I prefer 'Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball'. And speaking of, I believe you were just taunting me with that alterna-quote! Just kidding!! :)

Reading through this forum, it's just so amazing how quickly you all welcome new folks. And so warmly too... kudos! Thanks all, glad to be a part of this!

Ooh, pop culture reference fail on my part!:p I do remember now that it was "taunt," and not "annoy." I am ashamed, and shall now commit ritual seppuku.:'(

^^ LOL, good stuff, was that Mike Myers (off the top of my head, no Googling)?

No prob, I wasn't trying to be a stickler, I just wanted to get in another cheap laugh. The first time I ever watched that commercial and it got to that line, I was on the floor!

^^ Absolutely! Thanks folks, really appreciate it! I've gotten a wee bit addicted to posting the last couple of days, need to tone it down methinks, heh.

Ha ha, nice. Well honestly, when I see that somehow I'm currently up there in top posters/thanked, I don't know how to feel. And I assume that those are referring to frequency (yikes!), but I'm not sure. Don't get me wrong, I've been having a great time here, but I'm afraid that I've been going too hard with this.

Case in point, in the last week I made a couple of mistakes when trying to explain things and actually gave some wrong info. Other posters noted it, then I added edits to clarify as needed asap. But kinda embarrassing. Also, I don't want to wear out my welcome already! So anyhoo, that's what I was referring to.

This happens to me at least once per week. I look at roughly 50 threads per day, so it is bound to happen.

I appreciate it, though you're a 'baus' and I'm just slummin' it in my, er, *ahem* one measly forum, mainly.

Tone down posting? Inconceivable!!

You keep using that word - I do not think it means what you think it means...

How could I let this one go?! Fave quoted movie evah!!

Double edged sword. I have a lot of posts, sure, but people still go over my posts with a fine tooth comb. Don't worry about making mistakes. We all make them. Like anything else, admit when you are wrong, and just be nice to everyone in the forums.

^^ Spoken like a true baus! I believe that's what I've done so far and it does feel good. Though admittedly, in going back and adding edits to my horribly wrong posts to lessen confusion, it was tempting to change up the original post but I held firm and did not, warts and all.
