    I'm new. Saw an introduction topic so I dropped in. Signed up for this site because I am tired of gamefaqs forums. Looking forward to hanging out here.

    Gamefaqs can be a bit of a cesspool sometimes, but all forums can be like that. Welcome.

    Indeed. Glad to be here! Question if you can help me though, in the future if I want to change my username, how would I go about doing that? Also, Will that blue number next to my icon in the upper right ever go away? Makes me think I have a notification, when I don't.

    Somewhere, over there!
    Name changes are on a per case basis, and can only be done by those with administrative powers. The blue number I believe is something you'll just have to get used to. Notifications are red, and highly distinguishable. Welcome, and enjoy your stay. Be prepared for it all.

    It will go away when you read them. The bell is notification, and the little mail thing is new private message. Just don't make the number go too high like some people, that's the red number. :P

    The one next to your profile picture is your forum level. It's at 1 as you can see (in the post next to your mesages) You get exp for post and it goes up when you get enough, like Final Fantasy) THAT, is the one you want to go high as possible :P
