    Hi to all, and since we have a fair few new members (and returning members who have not used this board before)

    a few handy hints and tips...

    Hi and welcome aboard!!

    Some handy tips for new GateWorld members.

    We have a Welcome New Members thread in the Off Topic Chatter forum, which you can find here.

    The forum FAQ should answer any and all of your questions about the forum, including the preferred weapon of choice of each of the mods (although don't believe all you hear, we're all fluffy-bunny-wunnies really)

    One thing we do like to request, however, is that before you start a new thread – please have a look round (you can use the search feature) and make sure that it is not already covered by another existing thread. It makes more sense to have conversations about one specific thing in one place so that everyone can join in. Especially the episode specific threads: these are linked from the GateWorld website. Anyone who visits the website can follow the link and find out what we all said about the ep. They can not do that if the ep discussion is spread around several threads.

    Should, however, the FAQ not provide the answers you seek, you could try the Ask the Mods thread which is also in the Off Topic Chatter section. (and don't worry: that thread is looong, you are NOT going to get reamed and told to 'read the backlog'.) This thread covers everything from forum etiquette to the running order of future eps. (It is not the place to ask for the Answer To Life The Universe and Everything. That's a different show anyway and is covered elsewhere - and in excruciating detail - on the internet. We have been known to help with homework in the past though, although no guarantees are given)

    You can, of course (via their profiles) send a Private Message (PM) to any or all of the Moderators, or contact us by email if you prefer not to do it in the public forum.

    Jump in and start talking!!!

      Hi everyone, I'm new too. I just recently started watching Stargate, but have already seen the first six seasons since I bought them on DVD. They don't show it on tv here in Denmark anymore . I love all the characters but Sam is definitely my favorite .
      My name is Nina, I am 26 and other shows I like are Star Trek (all but TOS), The X-files, B5, Battlestar Galactica (new) to name a few. I might be lurking around here for a while until I get to know this place a little better...see you !

        Hi everyone!!!

        My name is Lorhelene, I'm french girl and I speak a little in american and english.

        I like Stargate SG-1. I think it's the best serie TV.

        And I like more other serie : ER, JAG, NCIS...

        Sorry if I make mistake of writting!

        And... I'm 14.

            Thanks major


              Hey people,

              Been around here before, but it's been a while so I created a new profile. (can't even remember the old one)

              Anyway I've been a fan of the show after it had first appeared on Showtime, catching it off and on. Then a couple of years ago broke down and started getting the boxed sets (up to season 6 now) & even managed to get the wife & her folks hooked on it. Thumbs up for me.

              I'm a veteran of the U.S. Army (Air Defense Artillery) and am fascinated by the show's use of weaponry. (for the most part they're pretty accurate)

              Not sure what else to mention right now seeing as it's 1:06am and I'm at work on nightshift getting sleepy.

              The image in my sig was thrown together pretty fast in an old version of Paint Shop Pro. It's the Avenger system (they use the stinger missle which gets used on the show a few times) with a cut n paste Gate.

              Again, hello to all, nice to be here/back.


                Hi All,
                I'm new to forums in general but not to GateWorld which is one of my favorite source of information about Stargate. I too have been a fan for years, started watching the TV show out of curiosity after I'd seen the movie, and rapidly got hooked. This forum seems like a friendly place and I hope we'll get to know each other better as time goes ;-)


                  Hello all. I'm a newbie, but an old fan. I started back with Showtime, but left after it started to get bad. My lovely girlfriend (Hex.FTB.enabled) reintroduced me to the show not too long ago. I've been really happy with what Sci-Fi has done with it. Anyway. Here I am, an old school Newb. This site rocks!

                    HI Ya Everybody!

                    I'm new!!! After a year of lurking MY very own TPTB a.k.a my parents let me join YYYaaaa!! Stargate FOREVER



                      hi my name is sheppards2cool and i'm in high school. i like stargate and my fav characters are shep,sam,oneil,mckay,ford,and weir, oh and daniel.
                      Other men said they have seen angels,
                      But I have seen thee
                      And thou art enough. True love cannot be found where it truly does not exist,
                      Nor can it be hidden where it truly does. To be in love is merely to be
                      In a state of perpetual anesthesia:
                      To mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god
                      Or an ordinary young woman for a goddess.

                      SHEPPARD/WEIR SAM/JACK VALA/DANIEL 4 EVER!!!!!!!!



                        To all of you: Haizums_breath, Lalie, teddybearnospaces, Cassie and sheppards2cool!!

                        Hope you'll enjoy it in here!

                        I havn't been here that long either!!


                        Belief in Sam and Jack ship in season 10?

                        P.S. sorry about my english - from Denmark()

                                Hello Everyone

                                My name is Caryn, I just joined ^-^

                                Um, I've been a fan of Stargate for a little over a year now. I think it's one of the best shows since MacGyver (hehe, RDA fan here).

                                A little bit about myself; I like to read, I write poetry, I snowboard, I love most music (I've yet to get into Country), I love plays and Improv. I'm also obsessed with Stargate ^-^
