Before creating a topic with some news information, please keep the following in mind:

After your news post, the topic is then up for debate and opinions. WE WILL BE STRICT ABOUT STAYING ON-TOPIC, AND KEEPING THE DISCUSSION CLEAN.

To help break the ice, I'm going to start a few topics so you can get the general idea. Have fun! :D

WoW! That was quick Royal!:D I thought it was going to be a vote thing and decide next week. But What The Hey! Right?! ;P

Seriously, This is awesome Royal. :)
First of all. One thing I want to say (I'm not really sure if its my place to say but he is my friend and it effected me personally is SaiymanX home country of Haiti. As I'm sure everyone is aware of by now that there was a terrible earthquake there. On Facebook, Saiy informed me that he is fine and that he wasn't even there. He is in the USA. But he told me his home in Haiti was turned to dust during that event. He did not tell me a whole lot more info except he was worried. (That's my assumption from what I gathered any how .) I haven't spoke to Saiy in a week since I last talked to him.
Anyway the purpose of me writing this is 2 fold. 1. To let you know what going on. And also to give you a chance to help a fellow community member out. There are various organizations out there that are assisting in the recovery of that ravage country. If you can contribute anything to help the people of Haiti to any of these organizations, No matter what it is? You will be doing something that truly will make a difference. :) I hope this wasn't inappropriate to put here but I felt it was really important for everyone to know.I will inform Saiy that I let you all know about this.

Saiy. If you read this? I hope it was OK that I wrote this. I'm not sure it was my place to do so but I want to help in any way I can and I know your friends here do to.. If it wasn't? I'm sorry. Peace.
