(You can, just don't mention anything in this thread or me, because it technically never happened. You can still know who everyone is and everything and have your same character, just say he joined sometime in the last 13 months of that thread.)
If you've been keeping up-to-date on the new ideas/rules coming through, you'll know all about my little experiment.
Lucky you, your thread has been chosen for this experiment. The method of choosing which threads was completely random. I wrote down about twelve thread names on the back of business cards, folded them, then threw them down my staircase. I then chose the furthest six, this showed which ones carried the most weight, and therefore which ones were mature enough to handle this duty.
In five days time, I'm going to come through and lock this thread. At that time, the thread may be created once again. This will allow the first post to be freshly updated with new rules and listings. This will then happen again every 200 pages or six months, which ever works out at the timing of the thread.
If you wish to discuss this subject matter, please post in here as odds of me returning to your thread to check on your replies are low. If you go to the thread I linked you to, I'll be sure to reply as soon as I get the alert for a new post.
