In brief, this is a thread worth joining. If you want to just relax and talk to people you should join. If you like cheesecake, you should join...and come on, who doesn't love cheesecake?? If you're lactose intolerant, you should join. We won't force you to eat cheesecake...I don't really like cheesecake either.
About this thread!
There's a lot of history to this thread. The original was made in the forum "My pants" on the original Brotherhood 2.0 website which was later shut down.
Along came "Your Pants", a forum which allowed the TNU community to thrive until the site was hacked and taken offline, replaced with a much less user-friendly forum where the thread was recreated twice. (and faced the great spam war....yeah, let's not talk about that!)
Worried you won't fit in or that you'll do something wrong? Watch the video I've made to introduce you to TNU at the end of this post
Now here's "Our Pants", so I figured we'd try to to get the ball rolling. In previous incarnations of this thread people posted either just an introduction to themselves or stuck around to chat to other Teenage nerdfighters, make friends, discuss whatever was on their mind etc etc. It my be a bit quiet at times, but don't worry, we're not dead yet!
So I'll start the ball rolling with this. Hi, my name is Luke. I'm 19 and from Ireland. I'm currently in university, studying a course in Multimedia (basically Flash, web design, video/audio, photography/graphic work etc rolled into one). I have been involved with this thread since the first Your Pants and have since run a collab channel with members, visited England to meet a few of the people I met on it (and it went really well) and generally just enjoyed myself.
If you're interested in my work then my Tumblr page is in my signature. Portfolio page status: Not quite done.
In the larger Nerdfighter community, a few of you may recognise me as one of the closed Beta testers and now a moderator for the Nerdcrafteria Minecraft server as well as an active member of the Irish Nerdfighter community.
Anything else you may or may not find out over time depending on how often I get to post on here
So tell us about you and maybe stick around to talk!
It can be hard to get to know everyone so I've compiled a list of regulars to this thread. Let me know if you wish to be added to this list and I'll be happy to oblige
(warning:may be out of date)
Already a pleasure to meet you and DFTBA
This is the video I mentioned:

Current branding suggests that you use TNU blue. This is R=184 G=224 B=255. However, as this is not a business or anything of the sort, it could change at any minute, nor is it required that you use this colour. Let your creativity flow and do better than our current thread branding!
On the off chance that you're reading this as a member of TNU who's been around for a while, or someone who just joined. If I've left here,current members..it's not your fault. You'll know my reasons though. New members, you're welcome to TNU and I hope you enjoy your time here.
While I was a part of TNU I was somehow thrust into a sort of leadership position. I hope someone else can do a better job than I did :P Just..look after this thread. TNU has taken up so much of my life, and despite this I'd love to see her become for others what she was, for a while, for me..and if you ever need this post edited don't hesitate to contact me (within reason)
