    Hi all...I wanted to start a thread for the Members that are close to becoming ECF Veterans...talk & chat about what we've accomplished
    and general fun we've had meeting people & helping out the new members...have at it Folks!!!

    Welcome to the ECF Pre-Vet thread !

    A Pre-Vet is an ECF member that is about to have their status "Turn" to ECF-Veteran on or about their anniversary date.

    This thread is where you can hang out (courtesy of Whiskey creating this thread) and celebrate becoming an ECF-Veteran with other ECF members. You have the option (but not the obligation) to have an Avatar Theme Celebration on your turning day. You select a theme, and many of the group here will help celebrate by changing their avatars. Kind of an avatar costume party. You'll also get a bunch of congrats and a welcome thread created in a sub-forum for vets that pre-vets can't even see yet.

    If you want to have an avatar theme, start thinking about it! Try to give us enough advanced notice that we can dig something up for pics.

    Welcome again. Please feel free to participate in the themes for others if you wish. JerryRM posts a list frequently.

    Pre-Vet FAQ's:
    Is this a requirement to become a Vet?
    Nope! It's a fun time hosted by Whiskey and the crew here. You are not required to have an Avatar Theme, or Welcoming Thread, nor are you required to participate in others avatar themes. It's all totally optional. No pressure.

    Who is invited? / I didn't get an invitation!/ What's the Deal?
    Everyone that is within a month of their 1st year anniversary with ECF is welcome to simply post here and say "Hi". We'll welcome you and take it from there. You may have received a PM if we spotted you "out there" on ECF. If we missed you, don't take it personally, we can't catch everyone! The more you post, the more we are likely to spot you. But mistakes can happen. So feel free to come on in and join up. Speak up if you don't see your name on the list! Try and give us at least a few days notice as a courtesy so we can prep our avatars.

    Do I have to be a Pre-Vet to post?
    Nope! Come on in and celebrate. Participate in the Avatar Themes if you wish. Or just say "Hi" or "Congrats". It's all optional and non-exclusive. Of course, the theme days/events are for those that "turn" on a specific date.

    About Avatars
    We save the avatars in the new Veterans personal thread. As such, if you use a normal ECF link to them, they will disappear when you delete them from your personal ECF folders. It has been suggested that people use an image host of their choosing to host the images in a more permanent fashion. The vets can paste them into the thread directly. However, pre-vets don't have access to the thread. A catch-22. So....

    Non-Veteran Avi Depot
    In the sandbox (testing forum at the bottom of the home page) there will be an avi drop off for Non-Veteran participants in a turnee's celebration.
    ***********************************************
    You must set it up with a URL and a link to TinyPic is included to use if you don't have your own preference.
    TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting
    Then your Celebration Avi will be taken and posted in the turnee's Welcome Thread for you.

    Ooops, I must have taken a wrong turn on my way to the snail thread. I should have taken a left turn at Albuquerque !!

    Be extra careful in here, it ain't in the "Outside".

    Can I ask a question how does one get the "title" veteran? Does this title also have to do with the "ask the veteran" category? (Or does this mean I need to go take my Geritol now?)

    I see you are already are a veteran. One year membership and 75 posts and you are a veteran.
    Only veterans can answer questions in "Ask the veterans" forum.
