Homeless Guam Forum Trolls!!!! lol
« on: October 08, 2008, 08:15:11 PM »
I posted this on the suggestions forum, but after seeing it was in the retired section, I wasn't entirely sure I was supposed to post anything there, so I'm posting it here as well...please forgive my wandering...lol

To M2, any and all other Powers That Be, and anybody else who might be interested:

There's probably only a handful of Guam residents on the forum atm, but I've been trying to recruit several friends into the discipline, and have redirected them to the site. 

There's a common misconception on the Interwebs that Guam is another country, and not part of the U.S. even though we have U.S. ZIP and area codes.  The main reason for this is that shipping companies, not being required to acknowledge Guam as part of the United States, classify us as another country for the sake of charging us international shipping costs, etc.  But, yes, we are part of the U.S.  Which leads me into my main point...

As a U.S. territory, and not a state, I'm not sure if it's within my rights to ask for this...but is it at all possible for Guam to have its own child board on the Local Discussion forum?Pretty please? lol

Thanks for takin' the time to read this.  :)

NO! YOU CANNOT HAVE A BOARD! >:( States only!

[/sarcasm]

I'm sure they'll give you one, but probably not until tomorrow, since it's past midnight for a lot of us.

...Since you said please.

States only?  Booooo.

S'alright, the U.S. federal gov't lets us have a Congressional representative, but they don't let us vote for President.  We're used to it...lol

[/sarcasm appreciated]

"No board-poasting by Guam without represenatation!"

my bad change-up of the famous saying "no taxation without representation"

thats amazing to me, Guam is part of U.S. That needs to be spread more, seriously, and the canal zone in Panama too.
You should have your own boards, but doesnt that mean peurto Rico gets one too?? not that thats bad, just observing.

Well, I assumed the only reason that none of the territories(Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, etc.) were on the local discussion forums because nobody from any of the territories had mentioned anything to suggest that there might actually be people living there.  So I mentioned it...lol.

I dunno, I just don't wanna put any unnecessary work into motion for other territory forums that may or may not have local traceurs to fill them...*shrug*.  I just want a Guam forum because I know there's a couple of folks that are interested besides myself.  Nothing fancy, just a place for us to congregate 'n' such.
