Welcome! My forum name is Dawn and this place is the SAMB (Spirit Animals Message Board)! I do have to let you now that the SAMB is closing down at the end of the month and while we are happy to have you here, you won't be here very long because of that. The SAMB is a place where you can talk to other SAMBers (members of the SAMB), make friends, join roleplays, can write stories. Stuff is kind of different right now because of the closing, but that would be what we normally would do. There are mods who keep track of the posts and make sure no one is being bullied or giving out personal information. You can see the rules right above the area where you make a new post. Just make sure to follow these rules and you will be fine. You can also create a Signature under the Signature section, accessible from the home page of the forums. You Signature typically contains your chosen forum nickname and a few things about you (you can see min below this post as an example). Since the forums are closing, I would recommend also checking out Homebase, where a new forum is going to be created after the closing of this one. You can find this by going to the Scholastic homepage and scrolling down to the bottom. We hope you enjoy your stay here on the SAMB, even if it is for a short while!
