    Hey everyone, only discovered these forums the other day, so thought I'd sign up and give them a shot :D

    As for introductions: hi, I'm Silver Swift and discovered the show in 2011 (about a week after the S1 finale aired), when procrastinating studying hard, and have been a fan ever since.

    Anyone who is also on MLPforums might recognise the name, as I've been a member in there for about a year and a half, but after lurking around for a bit, the community here seems different. I've found that many of the threads on MLPforums don't seem to have much discussion, people come to say their piece and then leave, where on here it looks like there is a bit more engagement between members, which is one thing I kinda wish MLPforums has - so I've decided to become a 'two forums kinda guy' lol.

    As for me, my hobbies include music (listening, performing and producing), running, photography and have recently taken up squash. Job wise, I'm a specialist scientist (specialising in Haematology and Blood Transfusion) and am based in Somerset (but have very close ties to Dorset).

    Now, onto the important stuff:

    Favourites:
    Mane 6 (or is it 7 now?): Rarity
    Princess: Celestia
    Non-pony: Discord
    Episode: Return of Harmony (1&2)
    Aaaand I'm probably missing out many categories, but those are what I can think of at the moment :D

    Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask, and I'm looking forward to getting started here :) - I guess I'll be seeing you all around the forums!

    Hello and welcome, Silver Swift!
    I hope you won't be all that miffed
    If this poem is rather short
    Because I'm tireder than I ought... to be. :p
    Heh, how much discussion there is depends on what the subject is. :p But although vaguely familiar with MLPforums, I'm not a member there so can't make a fair comparison.

    Also, about time we had a few more Celestia fans about the place. :D

    A short poem is better than no poem, so thank you :D

    That is true, it was just that there were some topics that (to me at least) should have been great for discussion, but little happened - don't get me wrong, I do like the forums, but somewhere else a little bit different is welcome (variety is the spice of life XD)

    Yeah dude - most underrated princess needs love too!!!!

    Hi, and thanks for the welcome :)

    Haha, didn't take me long to find the photography thread XD - hoping to be able to contribute to it soon (and you had some good pics in there!)

    Cool, it's a very attractive county, I've only been here a few years, I know the areas around Bath/Bristol and their surrounding areas best (have been down to Shelton Mallet a few times too), but am hoping to go exploring it a bit more soon!

    I know that area vey well used to live in Midsomer Norton. A lot of the family live round Bristol.
    Sheptons ok, Frome is a little more interesting and if you can venture a little further afield the Mendips all the way along to the gorge is pretty spectacular for photography, some great views of the Levels above Rodney Stoke.

    Ha, one of my colleagues has recently bought a house in Midsomer Norton. I've not really been to Frome, driven through it but that's the closest I've been. Once the camera is back, I'm going to have to check them out! Recently discovered some of my colleagues are into photography too, so are planning on taking a photography trip with them soon :D
