I noticed this was a feature just today and said, "why not make a sticky for new members?" If anyone has any ideas for any other stickies, feel free to PM.

Remember, lots of happy welcoming in here folks! I want to see your smiles! :D (Do I sound like your primary school teacher yet? :lol:)

Hey everyone! I've been visiting this board for several weeks but only recently thought of trying to post something. I'm a student at the University of Ottawa in the third year (math/psychology).
I am not a psychologist.

This place is amazing. Hands down. Mind you, I don't really have any other forums to compare it to seeing as I'm not a big...forums person LOL but this place has become a bit of an obsession for me, and that can only be because the people and atmosphere here are so great. :D

Keep up the great work, guys :wink:
