I still have plenty of time, but in interest of getting an answer I'll ask now- Whats the best way to go about getting a senior member Reference? Do they come to you? Do you go to them? Whats the best way to go about it without offending anyone? Thanks!

It can go both ways, but don't feel bad asking for a reference. If you need one, feel free to PM me and we can chat a bit and I'll do it. (It's nothing to stress over, as long as you're legit or hide your axe murder tendencies well. ;) )

*Shoves Ax under her bed* Duly noted! I suppose it would be helpful to pop into IRC more than once and get to know people?

No need (though please feel free to do so if you wish). Just be active on the boards, get to know folks a little, and I have no doubt you'll find a couple people who would be happy to sponsor you :)

Come by the Tavern as well! I like getting to know the folks that pop into our table! :)

Yes, you can :) You'll lose that when you enter the Tower as a Novice, but you'll get it back as an Accepted and for the time being it's a great place to get to know folks :)

Weirdly enough, some SMs would like to get to know new people as much as new people want to get to know SMs. :look: If you like, drop me a line! :)

:) I know when I needed two references, I looked to see who was fairly active and PM'd them and got to know them a little better etc. I think I mentioned I was also looking for references when I PM'd them.

Or if you want to be a REALLY big loser, post a thread in general.... :look:

Just kidding, doesn't make you a loser! That's what I had to do :P I only seemed to be interacting with junior members and knew one SM irl. But yeah, people here are a chatty bunch, most of us, so just PM someone like the others said. And chat is a GREAT place to meet new people as well.

Lots of people love PMS! At least I do. :look: Makes me feel special, especially when it's something random and a new person saying "hi!"
Ninya has the right of it - SMs like meeting new people just as much as new Citizens do!

I, for one, do not enjoy PMS.

That's what I was thinking when I read that :laugh: By the way that sig is just amazing! :O lol


Seriously though I like getting PMs but I'm always shy about sending one to someone else first, as if I'm stepping into their territory or something :s Seems like I'll have to get over that really fast XD
