Hi guys,

I am no longer able to keep up with reading each and every post, so I have missed a few of your messages. I will still always check the request and bug thread, but our new moderators will be helping to keep an eye one the rest of the forum.

Since I will be a little harder to contact, I wanted you guys to have somewhere to ask questions or say hi... this is it :)
Please try not to chat at each other in this thread, unless you are helping to answer a question. (It makes it hard to figure out which replies are aimed at me and which are ment for someone else.)

Keep up all your awesome building, and I will chat at you again soon!

There are no excuses for inapproriate behaviour. (Having a bad day, or a crazy home, too much sugar, a death in the family, a bad day at school, etc...) If you are have having a bad day, then try to have some friendly conversation to make yourself feel better. Its always a good idea to seek out help from the adults in your life (parents, teachers, family friends) when you are feeling stressed or having troubles. They can't always help (and I know you won't always want them to help), but if they know whats going on they might be able to be a bit more supportive when you need it most.
