    My friend sparkie

    THERE'S SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE READING THIS THREAD NEEDS TO KNOW:


    SPARKIE IS AWESOME!

    Now, having said that, why hasn't anyone who's visited his profile page or portfolio left any messages?

    Why hasn't anyone (with the exception of a few exceptional people) asked to be his friend here?

    I have a simple request...get to know my good friend Sparkie. That's all. Leave a message on his page. Be a friend.

    Come to think of it...why isn't every member of this wondrous community reaching out to one another?

    I'm not too proud to admit why I'm always trying to make friends here at Mythic Scribes: Because this is one of the last bastions on the internet of decency and open and honest communication without fear of being hurt or rejected.


    A place where we as members can share our ideas, our dreams & our hopes without being afraid. A place where we can get away from all the negativity and crap that's going on in day to day life...even if for just a little while. Sparkie is one of the many members of the Scriptorium who exemplify these traits.

    Some people may think that I'm lame for saying that, but it's okay. They're entitled to their opinion. I know that in my line of work and in my previous career, I've had enough bad experiences to last a dozen lifetimes.

    I'm sure that the vast majority of you all can say the same. That's why I love Mythic Scribes and that's why Sparkie is my friend. I hope that you'll choose to be his friend too.

    Heck, I hope that this thread will light a fire which will get everyone to be friends here!


    Thanks for listening to my rant and responding.


    Have a wonderful day!

    I admit, I haven't used the adding friend feature very much on here. And I was unaware of anything having been posted in the gallery section as of yet. I'll go check it out today!

    I'll say for myself, I consider everyone on Mythic Scribes my friend unless they state otherwise.

    Amen. Now get Battlefield 3 so we can become better friends by killing others.

    And I say, get to know Reaver! MS's friendliest banhammer-squad member! Err - I mean fun moderators!

    Wow Reaver, deep. I posted a message on Sparkie's before looking here though. I'll try reaching out to more people though. I would like to start that by becoming you and Sparkie's friends.

    Sparkie's cool. Who isn't friends with Sparkie? I'll punch 'em. All of 'em.

    Admittedly, though, there's not too much use right now in being Profile Friends or in leaving visitor messages. I don't think it's a good measure.

    Well, thanks Codey. I appreciate that. Especially the banhammer part. Don't fret-I'll be purchasing BF3 soon enough...then you shall see cadavera vero innumera!

    Reaver is right, we should be getting to know each other better and be more friendly here at Mythic Scribes!! Anyway, like Phil said, I already consider everyone here my friends unless they state otherwise.

    Wow.

    You're alright, Reaver. I don't care what Sidekick says about you behind your back when he thinks you're not listening, I think you're great :P

    First off, I want to thank everyone for all the friend requests and messages. It's been kind of tough for me lately, so when I have an inbox full of greetings and kind words, I can't help but feel better.

    Seriously. It's heartwarming.

    I also want to give some props to all the people who make this a great site. A lot of members and staff work hard behind the scenes for everyone else's benefit. Just know it's appreciated.

    Because this thread is about me, I'll take the opportunity to announce that I intend to run a challenge during the month of April. I won't give away the details yet, but I think it'll be cool.

    I hope that I can show as much goodwill as I've been shown here on Mythic Scribes. I'll be doing my best to spread encouragement and positive thinking to everyone. Thanks so much, everyone! (especially you, Reaver)

    A fine speech, very rousing.

    You're right Reaver, we are one of the last beacons of respect and civility on the ever negative net, the net where people can cast off their faces and in anonimity be someone considarably less pleasant for while. We should be proud of our status. I guess like Mr Drill I had kind of assumed we were all friends here, not least Sparkie, who was one of the first to welcome me into this fine group.

    What comes around goes around, of course I'll send him an invite (tied with a purple ribbon). You're an example Reaver, I'll send you one too.
