    Welcome to the ECF Pre-Vet thread 2012 !

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

    This is a new thread for 2012 !

    A Pre-Vet is an ECF member that is about to have their status "Turn" to ECF-Veteran on 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. The list is posted 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 sixty days (give or take) 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. So....they will be transferred for you after you post them in the pre-vet thread.

    Please read the First Post in the PreVet thread, this post and PreVet FAQs.

    For those starting Welcome and Sandbox threads: They should be started EARLY morning the day before. If that is not possible, the night before.

    Welcome to the ECF Pre-Vet thread!

    This thread was started by ECF member Whiskey and soon turned into a thread where members can celebrate obtaining their ECF veteran's status.
    Besides celebrating this milestone day on this thread, we schedule the events and keep a schedule list.

    No one is automatically added to the list so if you're a non vet, you have to request to be added. How to do this and to check out your options (which can vary), please visit. **************************************************************************************

    All members, new and old, are free to join these celebrations. Vets can post in the Welcome threads in the Veteran's Forum but non vets can't because non vets can not see that forum yet. For non vets to get a post into the Welcome Thread in the Veteran's Forum follow the Sandbox instructions in PreVet FAQs.

    I post this list frequently on this thread.
    List can also be found here: PreVet List: **********************************************************************************************************

    It would great if you added text for this in your avatar when we aren't doing a celebration.

    I swear Chloe got into my Malibu and Coke! She's bouncing off the walls...blowing her New Year's blowouts and trumpets while twirling her noise makers!! I think I'm going to need tranquilizers to get her down. Big Game Tranquilizers!!
