I know that you're thinking one (or both), of two things: "Oh God... ANOTHER 'family' thread, which will no doubt shun newcomers and claim that only members can post...", or "Bugger. It is set up and run by Brony-folk, I better leave before they bombard me with pony memes."
To be honest, pony memes are likely, so haters beware.
However, we will be fully accepting of everyone, unless of course they give us reason not to (In which case, they'll be added to an 'Ignore List' until they prove they can be trusted and stop being a nuisance).
So... Why Cacti?
You mentioned Members... Why do members exist?
Being a member shows that you aren't just a troll or cactus hater.
This thread, like many others has a zero tolerance troll policy, unless of course the troller is a very skilled troll who can amuse us with his/her antics.
Be warned: if you can't troll properly, you will be added to the ignore list and possibly reported, after that your organs may be sold on the black market.
I am not responsible for amateur trolls who think they're an expert in the art of the troll who get banned/assassinated by M_T_M.
Members, in general, may be treated more positively and will probably have a lot of
I wanna be a member! How do I become one?
I don't know... ask?
You're likely to be accepted if you posted here and people are friendly to you.
Remember, we are a group. A family. So it is important that we are all friendly to each other (unless it is humorous in the given scenario to troll someone).
Be sure that you fit in and like it here before asking to be a member.
