    Apstarz.....Hello and a great big LGBTQIA+ welcome to Empty Closets! :old_smile: I can remember the first post that I made on EC. I was desperate for help and I got the help that night that I so needed. I hope that we can help you in the same way that I received help. The most important thing to remember about Empty Closets is that we do care about you! We're very glad that you found us here on EC and hope that we can answer questions, give you support and provide a place to vent (as long as it's not violent!) :old_big_grin: when that becomes necessary!
    *****There are 18 different sub-forums here that you can check out and join in the conversations or start your own thread/conversation. When you have made at least 10 posts on various threads you will be able to post messages on a member's Profile Page. Just click on a member's Avatar Picture and then click on "Profile Page" in the dialogue box that pops up. You'll then be on their Profile Page and there will be a box that says: "Write Something" When you have been on EC for a few weeks and have made at least 50 posts on various forums, you can apply for Full Membership. A Full Member can send Private Messages (PM) to other Full Members and share personal contact info. Right now you can only send a PM to a Staff Member as that is always possible. Here is a quote from the Full Membership information forum: :old_cool:
    *****
    To be eligible you must be a member of Empty Closets for a minimum of two weeks, and have a minimum of 50 posts. These posts must be across numerous forums (Fun & Games does not contribute to post count), and consistently posted across a minimum of two weeks. You wouldn't be eligible, for example, if you registered, had no activity for two weeks, and then returned to post 50 times on your 14th day of membership.
    *****Well, as I said, we're very glad you found us! :old_rolleyes: If you have any questions at all, you can post a question on my Profile Page or send me a Private Message.

    No. No, no, no... no! I won't be your friend. Who do you think you're talking to? You come here, ready to be accepted, and spill your guts about all the things you love, and you want me to be your FRIEND!?

    NO! No, we'll never be friends. Do you hear me? NEVER! I will never be your friend!

    Do you know why?

    Because we're family. Already. You're my sister, and the fact that you love gaming, animation, music, and exploration, well... that just makes you one of my favorite sisters!

    So welcome! I love that you've reached out to us, and I love even more that you trusted us all enough to be vulnerable about your interests!

    I'm Lydia, I'm proud to be your sister in the Community, and I'm honored to call you my - at the very LEAST - friend, if not my sister!

    I hope you post a ton, I hope you feel welcome, loved, and assured in your place in this crazy world, and I promise I will do all I can to help you feel welcome, warm, and accepted - including, but up to, committing to a joke where I pretend to reject you so that my natural acceptance feels all the more inviting.

    If not, sorry I freaked you out. I've got an insanely dry sense of humor, and I use it sometimes to great affect, and sometimes I have to have uncomfortable conversations with people about what I really stand for...

    Here's hoping it's the former!

    All my love! ^_^

    PS - HUGE Burton fan, we can chat any time

    Hey, I'm a bit late with my welcome but wanted to say it anyway =P

    You've listed some pretty cool interests. Personally I used to love playing minecraft in school, haven't done it for years but it pretty much got me through my GCSEs back then!

    Hope you continue to settle in here, seems like you're fitting in pretty well already.

    Hi Welcome!
    I love Avatar the Last Airbender (sort of anime-ish) and the Sims games. I've always wanted to watch more Anime and play different games but I haven't known where to start.

    The first R-rated movie I saw in theaters was Sleepy Hollow, with my beloved mother, when I was 11! Shows how old I am, sure, but that remains my favorite! I love every second of that amazing film! Very close second is Beetlejuice, but Nightmare Before Christmas is... elemental to me.

    I was a kid when that came out, and it will always take me back to my childhood! I remember how Jack and Sally's romance made me swoon, and how much Oogie-Boogie scared me! And the songs... Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo are among my favorites! I will never not be a fan of that movie, and I think it's both a Halloween and Christmas classic!

    Welcome, sister! I'm sincerely glad you're here, and I'm a bit proud I had you going for a minute, for I hope it just made me opening my arms all the more inviting to you!

    Final note: "Mars Attacks!" is probably my favorite sci-fi comedy, but GOD I love "Big Fish," too! And Edward Scissorhands... Goodness, was there a film more influential to my teen years? Second to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, probably not!

    REAL final note: All my love, sister, and welcome!!!
