so you probably know just where you want to go, having tested the waters as it were... what's your favorite spot?

Hello Nerdfightaria! I'm glad to be here! I love dragons, doctor who, digimon, sherlock, and science. So.. see ya round.


welcome!  what brings you to the ning?

I've  been a nerdfighter for a while but had no clue this existed! So glad that i found it though....:) So a song of ice and fire is phenomenal and my favorite fantasy, and harry potter and the hunger games are up there too. I guess I'm a nerd because reading and vlogbrothers is pretty much my life! :)

more fantastically jokes words may never have been uttered.  welcome to the ning! 

Hi! I'm Riyo, an awesome nerdfighting Canadian.

So, I'm a new nerdfighter. I got introduced to the vlogbrothers channel... probably through CPGGrey, which was, in turn, through StumbleUpon. I stumbled onto his 2012 video and subscribed to him, then actually started browsing YouTube again, and then probably just clicked through to an interesting vlogbrothers video and good hooked. It was all very recent. I haven't met anyone IRL who is a nerfighter as of yet, though I am working on my conversion skills.

I love games--video games, board games, card games, roleplaying games, etcetera--and nerdy things in general, such as learning. Yay, learning! Also, Pokémon is, like, the best thing ever.

I basically just want to make some friends who are awesome nerdfighters. =)

Awesome! Welcome to the ning! Hope you have as much fun here as all of Nerdfighteria does :D


you said something about converting... who are you introducing to Nerdfighteria?

Hi, I just joined a little bit ago... I guess I should post here?

My username-thing is Fishkin, which is my last name. You can call me that or Fish or anything else you can think of I suppose. I'm a 9th grader, and I like many different types of art. I draw and write for fun. Oh, I'm a girl. Guess that's important too.

I'm in my school's orchestra (I just started playing this year, so I've had to catch up with people a lot), and I love it. I play the double bass.

My friend Carolyn got me into Nerdfighters by showing me the FAQ video... I got hooked immediately!

I like lots of different sci-fi/fantasy shows/books/whatever like Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Sherlock Holmes, uh... yeah etc. etc.

I also love playing video games- I love Halo, though I really am terrible at it- along with board games (mainly chess. I love chess).

Yeah, not sure what else to put here... ;w;

Welcome to the Ning! :) Enjoy your stay :D

indeed, welcome.  i've never really taken up an instrument, but i bet you'll continue loving Orchestra. 


also... is Carolyn someone we might have met on here?

I'm pretty new to Nerdfighteria. Last summer I picked up "Looking for Alaska" by John Green and enjoyed it. However, it wasn't until March of this year that I was introduced to Nerdfighteria. Someone in my english class (a non-nerdfighter) used a clip from John Green's video on Catcher in the Rye to talk about the book. I was reminded of how much I liked John's book so I decided to watch some VlogBrothers videos. Around the same time, I started reading The Fault in Our Stars. I read TFiOS in about a day and fell in love with it. Then I started cramming every minute of my free time with Hank or John videos. I'm almost 300 videos in (there are more than 950 videos currently, so I'm only a third of the way there. But I think I'm still doing pretty well haha.) I am proud to be a new nerdfighter! I love the things this community is doing to decrease worldsuck. I love being able to participate in a community where people value intelligence and fandom and are generally accepting of everyone.

Oh, and here's how I'm a nerd: 1. I'm OBSESSED with Harry Potter. 2. I read a lot. 3. I'm a writer 4. I used to read the dictionary for fun

I may not be as much of a "nerd" according to some people's definition, but I value intelligence and fighting worldsuck and fangirling about stuff. So I'd say that counts :)
