I've PMed you. :pleased-1: As for membership... I think a great lot of us have joined precisely because this place gives us an opportunity to earn our way through the ranks and become the closest thing you can to a Servant of All IRL, so you're certainly not alone in that, nor is it too zealous. :laugh: I think you should absolutely apply for Citizenship at the very least - it will give you a lot more space to get to know people better and more efficiently, and you can take all the time you want and need. As things stand, as a Guest, you don't have that many areas to explore, and Citizenship is the next logical step to take. I definitely understand Citizens wanting to take their time before entering the Tower and the like, but as far as I'm concerned, as soon as you fulfill all the requirements for Citizenship - go for it!
Thank you so much, Luna, that may just be the kick in the butt I need! :laugh:

I'm having a blast exploring and finding ways to contribute and just meeting new people....it's not often you find a fabulous group of people like this. :love I have a tendency to jump into things very quickly so I'm trying to hold myself back from applying for membership too quickly, but just in exploring over the past couple days, I'm fairly certain I want to end up in an Ajah in the White Tower :laugh: But I know I've got a ways to go and so many more awesome people to meet!

I had the same experience!! I'm guesting with the different Ajahs and Companies now, and I'm loving it!

Nice! My family is from Illinois, but mostly around Granite City. I do have an aunt and some cousins from Mount Vernon though, and some friends that used to live in Madison.

Do you ever come to STL for Tar Valon events? Are there ever any STL events like that?

I am currently in the St. Louis, Missouri, USA area (I moved here from the Ozark area of Missouri)
I'm from the Ozarks area of Missouri! I always get excited when other people join who live kinda near me.

We visit Bull Shoals Lake every summer, and I LOVE the drive through the mountains to get there.
I have some good memories of going tubing and fishing on that lake. We haven't really gone recently, although last year we did spend a long weekend on Table Rock Lake with my dad's family.

That's so great to find someone from STL! I'd love to get a group together someday and really nerd out :laugh:

There was recently a gathering in the Chicago area, which is still a drive for you but fairly regional. Previously we've also done camping in Peoria, which is even closer. I think a group also went to the Kansas City Ren Faire, which I wanted to attend but something else came up. I would be open to a weekend trip (can't miss any work) so something in St. Louis or Kansas City. Or we could all go be tourists and go to the capital & capitol building, I dunno. We have a local events forum that I think you get access to as a Citizen, so we can work out details there later.

I have a tendency to jump into things very quickly so I'm trying to hold myself back from applying for membership too quickly
As others have said, you should do it. You've already shown you're engaged and have a proper name and avatar, so you're probably good to go. There are a lot of great benefits as a Citizen, and the main reason you don't just start out there is because of the "paperwork" involved and making sure your account meets the guidelines (I think).

Yay! Another Ozarkian! Table Rock is a gorgeous lake, and a good middle ground between Lake of the Ozarks and Bull Shoals, IMO. LotO is WAAAYYY too crowded and Bull Shoals can get eerily quiet and isolating sometimes.

I could definitely do Peoria or KC or the Capitol. Or STL obviously :). My husband's family is in KC, so that'd be convenient. Do you happen to know about how many Missourians are in Tar Valon? I'd love to dive into the Events forum once I'm a Citizen and see if something can't be arranged.

As for becoming a Citizen, I'm submitting my application this afternoon! So thank you for the encouragement!

How many of us currently in MO... I think you make four, but I could easily be forgetting people. Extending the area to be more regional and include Illinois et al., more like 10.

And it's great that you applied to be a Citizen, I can't wait to see you in the city!
