Welcome newcomer! I'm psoplayer, and I'm one of the mods here in the forums. This page is here to help introduce you to what's going on here, and how to fit in right away.
First, a few words from your admin and mods:
Before you wander off into the forums, please, PLEASE take the time to actually read the rules and the FAQ for both the forum and the music section. They are the last two links under the dropdown for the two sections. Also, when you post in the forums, please take the common courtesy to write in semi-proper english (except for the specific language threads). Capitalization and punctuation aren't all that much of an issue, but using real dictionary words is. If you need a little help on the subject, read Michiyo's A Little Insight on TXT Language.
There are some guides that I've written to get you started in the forum with posting, adding images and colors, fonts and such. And makeing an avatar or signature picture. You can see them here.
To get started in the forum, you can introduce yourself in the same section that this thread is in. Just click the back link above or below this post, create a new thread and give yourself an introduction. You'll quickly be warmly welcomed. I promise!
Don't bother trying to reply to this thread, it has been locked, and there is no link to reply. Thus, the Locked icon appearing next to its name in the "Introduce Yourself" section. Also keep an eye out for the yellow exclamation mark icons next to them (as this thread has also). That represents a 'sticky' thread that holds some special importance. It will stay at the top of its section in the forum, even when it doesn't contain the latest post.
And here's a few long lasting popular threads you might like to start off posting in:
Post a screenshot of your desktop (I suggest reading my guide on HTML to learn how to post images first)
Where are you from?
What is your nickname from?
The Happiness Thread
The Depression Thread
Your very first anime?
Your favorite song (pick just one)
Below you'll find some more interesting guides created by regular forum users like you, so be sure to scroll down and check them out too.
Edit from riceboks:
Just want to tell the newbies that when you start a new thread, MAKE SURE IT HASN'T BEEN CREATED BEFORE! :D If you see your 'new' thread locked, or you can't see it at all, then I (or another mod) have deleted/locked your thread because it already exists. Please use search before making a new thread! Please, please, please! It'll make me one happy rice dispenser. XD

: This is the main man. He created Gendou.com from scratch and is the sole owner. He handles everything from the music database, to fixing problems, to banning users for bad behavior. Think of him as the lovable dictator of the Gendou nation, a good guy who offers protection and music to those who play by the rules he has laid down. Of course for those who do not obey these rules he crushes them under his mighty boot. Democracy this is not, so don't expect a vote or Judge Judy trial, because Gendou's word is the only thing that matters.
: This is DA, DAngel, Devils Angel, whatever you want to call him he's been a long time active user of the forum which is shown through his 16,000+ posts. He tends to hang around the chat, Other and Waste of Time sections.
: This is me of course. I used to be a creator of contest threads and new ideas as well as a massive RP fiend (I created the concept and main bulk of the RP Masters Guide). I used to be much more active in the forums, being the second person on Gendou to hit the 10,000th post mark (DA now leads that pack while myself and Bloodymoon have dropped off), but since the forum has died down a bit and the Waste of Time Section isn't my cup of sake as it were I'm not as active as I once was(College, work and a relationship have/will also cut into my activity). I'm currently attempting to get something rolling on Gendou TV, so look out for that.
: Ah yes. Pame. She's basically Gendou.com's pop idol. She's won awards both on Gendou.com (Hottest member and Best personality) as well as outside of the site (Like the 2008 Anime Expo Idol contest). She's cute and a very talented singer, so head over to her profile by clicking on the picture there and get a taste of our very own songstress. (Sorry guys, I don't know if she's single or not, guess you're on your own with that.)
: One of our resident artists as well as a guy who really likes Sailor Moon. Do you like Hentai, H-Games, Visual Novels, Dating-sims and Harem's? Then he's your guy! You can typically find him in the Game and Anime sections having a (friendly) disagreement with me over why Fllay Allstar in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed is more human than any other character (among other hard hitting topics of discussion).
