    Welcome to the Tar Valon. :clap I took a theater class in college and it was a blast, I can definitely see it as being someone's passion.

    I love that everyone is so welcoming! So I guess now I wonder what is next? I want to dive in and get involved but am not sure what to do next?

    You, Elania Sedai, are welcome. And also thank you, because now it will be stuck in mine as well.

    So, as for what to do next, your big two choices are probably to hop into either the book discussion forums (broken down by spoilers you're likely to see plus dedicated forums for Brandon Sanderson and other non-Wheel of Time stuff) or the discussion halls (topics about various hobbies and interests). You can either join in on existing conversations, or if you want to talk about something specific and don't already see a thread for it, start your own!

    *Totally not biased as a moderator in those specific forums. :look

    You are too quick Elania Sedai...

    To add onto that, next steps would be work towards 25 posts so that you can apply to become a citizen which will open up a bunch more threads. The members manual in the library has a bunch more info if you're interested.

    And you can always check out IRC if you want to chat with people in a slightly different setting.

    I do want to work towards citizenship. I am not sure what IRC is though. Perhaps it should he obvious.

    We use IRC as a chat room. You can find a link in the menu called "IRC Chat" and then just make your nickname the same as here.

    Also, Lokadien, you could join us in chat too. :look

    Years ago, I played in an Irish trad band with the deacon from our parish; he and his wife both taught drama at the local high school. I haven't seen them in ages, and I miss them!

    Perhaps it is a sign that it is time to reach out!

    That would definitely create an added level of difficulty
