Why has PF stopped with the ancient traditions?

  1. Dec 29, 2015 #1
    I was scanning the new members forum. I scrolled back till November start. I noticed something odd. Back when I joined, old members used to ask the new members about their favourite fish,, and a certain ritual was done after that. Why don't we do it any more? It was so fun!

    Could you be more specific about the ritual involved?

    Because Monty Python issued us a cease and desist order. Those guys have no sense of humor...

    Was the new member allowed to slap back?

    Probably because the more I ask for it, the less results I sure get later. This matches with my personality. :nb)

    Frankly, in my humble personal opinion, the 'New member introductions' subforum should be renamed to: 'What's your favourite fish?'.

    That's just sad.
    NoPe. I was shocked too. Although I got slapped with Megalodon . :cry:. It's bad to see new new members don't go through with that torture.

    I might be in the minority, but I thought the fish-slapping bit was sort of lame...
