Can any of the forum moderators tell me why there isn't a board for new comers to tell a bit about themselves...? I've noticed that a lot of new people come here rather shy, and i just think it would be good to have a board for them to introduce themselves first.

Ahh, but we have one, no two in fact :)

But there will never be enough :)

Well, they do seem to travel 'incognito'. But isn't it always that way with royalty :)
I think? But if you greet new people too, then we will have three :)

Because nobody cares about that useless sh!t. We're here to butcher science, not welcome newcomers. tongue.gif

Ah hell. When I was a newbie I didn't bother telling anybody anything about me. I didn't care. I just started posting like I owned the place (and still do). wink.gif

Hi all, I am only an armature to the fields of science physics and technology etc, but I do have a passion for it and seek to learn more. One part of this board I am not to certain about even after reading all the rules and what other information about this board, do you have to be a professional researcher to qualify?

Well there isn't much to say about myself except that I has always had a passion for various fields of science. I am a retired social worker and a 62 year old grandmother, Actually what I have read in other posts in other forums I found of interest. But before I post anywhere I would like to know if this place is for professionals only? Or are amateurs welcome as well. If there isn't a restriction have another friend near my age that is also interested.

If I have blooped then I apologise and I will leave without having to be put in restraint with handcuffs and straight jacket.. biggrin.gif

Hi there and welcome. biggrin.gif

Anyone interested in science and physics can come here. No, not everybody here is a professional. I am not. There are all kinds of people here and a wide range of opinions. Yes, there are some people here who actually work in those fields or who are studying it in college. Others like me are just interested as a hobby. Dig in and enjoy. biggrin.gif

I didn't realize there was a separate thread for introductions.

My name is Ben. I am a grad student at Ohio State. I work in particle phenomenology/string theory, and can answer most questions about strings theory (the particle physics side) and quantum field theory. I try to stay out of discussion about black holes because I am always wrong, but I am not always successful.

I like to fish and hunt and drink whiskey. I am the only redneck that you'll ever meet that can skin a deer and tell you why compactifying the heterotic string on a six torus gives N=4 supersymmetry.
