Hey look, its the new guy!

That would be me.

And look, a community of like minded individuals actually makes me feel that when I say, "Hi my name is Graufalke and I like solitaire games" it does not feel like I am part of a 12 step program

jgatkinsn recommended that I take a swing by here and loving what I am seeing!

Welcome aboard, Graufalke! Jay warned you... Keep an eye on your wallet! Best advice is to steer clear of me, as my new title is the Breaker of Wallets. Ha ha! Have a great time getting into the community, and should you have any questions, ask away! Enjoy!

Just felt the urge to bring this thread back to the forefront of the forum. It's nice to remind myself of the community values we strive to maintain around here.

I've been especially thinking about Steve's 4th point:

reverendunclebastard wrote:
4 - Unsurprisingly, given that almost 7% of the general population experiences it on any given year, we have many members that have struggled with depression. [...] If these discussions are not your cup of tea, just ignore them rather than post antagonistic comments.

I don't suffer from deep depressions, but I have gone through multi-year lows, where seeing goodness and finding peace are especially difficult. I recall a handful of times during these years I spent in the valley, where a harsh, sarcastic, or dismissive comment directed towards me on BGG would send me into a months long spiral. I'm sure the individuals who made those comments didn't intend for a second to cause that type of harm, but it wounded me disproportionately due to my already vulnerable state.

I'd encourage everyone to be more patient than is deserved, use kinder words than you have to, give more grace than is earned. We need to try our best to remember that being good is better than being right.

(This from a man who just lost it on his son for coloring with a marker on the carpet. Sigh. Must do better.)

Well said. A good reminder that comments have consequences...something the anonymous nature of the internet allows many to forget.

It costs little to be kind. And the generous nature of the 1PG is a primary reason I spend more time on BGG than elsewhere on the web.

That and I’m addicted to games. 😏

A truly crucial reminder for all of us. Loving-kindness and compassion are vitally important in the world (and often seem in rather short supply these days), as our words have great power and can trigger ripple effects, both positive and negative, which we cannot foresee. We must all learn to respect this power and choose our words wisely.

Certainly the level of support, kindness, warmth and grace evident here in the 1PG sets a wonderfully high standard, and one which makes it one of the absolute best places on the internet -- and the place which I consider my internet home. It is truly a privilege to be a part of this awesome community. My deepest thanks to you all for making it such a consistently welcoming and accepting place.

Hi everyone! after many years of being on BGG, I have finally got round to saying hi. And this looks to be the best place to start! I think its also the 1st time I have posted on any forum, hopefully the 1st of many.

Welcome aboard! Usually the best advice is to watch out for the known wallet destroyers around these parts... And I'm in that group, much to the chagrin of my own wallet. Ha ha! Enjoy exploring the guild and joining in. Great to have you with us!
