I've been a regular on this forum since 2007~2008. My first account, Camoninja, fell victim to a "post here and get banned" thread because I was an obnoxious 13 year old who didn't know shit about the internet (I think I tried to get into an argument with Belial). I'm still active as thecamoninja, but I made that account in like 2009. You probably haven't seen me because I post exclusively in forum games.

The reason for this account is that in the intervening years, I have discovered that I am not in fact an obnoxious teenage boy like I thought, but an obnoxious 20-something trans girl. Online self-representation and identity matter a lot to me, so I wanted an account with my new chosen online handle, rather than the one I thought of when I was 12. The only reason I'm posting this is to explain to whatever mod has to approve me, and also because I want my sig back before I start posting in forum games with this.

Have you posted in the LGBTIQQA thread viewtopic.php?p=4207381#p4207381 ? If not feel welcome there :)

I've been meaning to make up for my not posting this thread. I wonder if it's of any use though. Some people here know me pretty well alrerady and all the others will probably see me as one from the miriad of users regardless of introduction. Especially since I'm (evidently) not good at introductions.
So uh...
Hi everyone... I'm a student from Hungary... um...I dabble with railway modelling, hifi and electronics... er.... photography... that sort of thing.

Hi folks. I've not been properly active in a long time, and the few posts I have made have been hidden away in FaiD.

I'm cheese, I'm a girl, I wasn't previously known as a girl. This place and its people helped me a lot in my teens, especially with teaching me how to not be an obnoxious wee shite. I've got quite a lot of catching up to do.

Hi flicky,

Welcome again, too. I'd say this is a fine thread to re-introduce yourself as a not-guy or nonbinary girl or whatever you will turn out to be :) . You can also do it in the LGBTIQQA support thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=38355&start=8160 if you feel like it.

Welcome back! I've been posting here off-and-on the last few months as well. Way more than I used to (which is practically never).

I guess I'm sort of similar; I joined this forum in middle school, and was about as mature and well-adjusted as you'd expect from somebody at that age who had few friends IRL/online. It was definitely helpful getting to interact with people who are both friendly and who were willing to point out dumb (and oftentimes cringeworthy) shit that I did/said.

I guess I should start here, then. Good morning/afternoon/evening, all!

I'm a brit, currently in my 1st year of studying Civil Engineering at Swansea University, Wales.

Back in 2013, I was given What if for Christmas. I read it quite a lot, it became an excellent bedside book I could dip into for one question or several. Even if I know many of them back-to-front now, I still enjoy them.
I then found XKCD proper in May 2016, where it became the excellent diversion from revision for AS-levels that I really didn't need :wink: . Since then I've been following it regularly, and have enjoyed every last bit.
I found these fora properly yesterday, and decided to join in. I'm probably going to be more of a lurker than a poster, but it's nice to be able to chip in occasionally. We'll see!

Other interests include railways and Lego, mainly. Often both at the same time.

I was here way back between '08 and '14, but I've had to abandon my old account, as its username is my deadname, since around then I finally realized I was trans after repressing it for years. And now I'm still working on the arduous process of updating all my old accounts with new email addresses and usernames so I can do the equally annoying process of deleting my gmail account I've had since '05, then remaking a gmail account that doesn't have my deadname on it.

Welcome back! I can only imagine how tiresome that process can be. One of my trans friends was lucky enough the name given to her at birth was gender-neutral and she felt comfortable just keeping it. That makes it easier.

You wouldn't believe it. I've been working on it for weeks and keep finding more logins I want to salvage. At this point, the legal name change is going to seem like a walk in the park (though with New York state, it pretty much is, aside from the hundred bucks).

Hi everyone, I'm a friend of Fred. I've been lurking at these boards irregularly since, oh, 2010 or so, when I was in college for the first time. I consider myself an aspiring rationalist, but I don't expect ever to be really good at it. I don't smoke or own any cats. I may not be posting too often, but I have some interests that align with topics often discussed on the board (computer stuff, LGBTQ issues, science fiction, sometimes politics even though it's scary), so this seems like a nice place to hang out.
