A very special new member Answered

Evening, all!

I would like to introduce a new member to you all.

It's #1 son.

No, he isn't actually called Roger, any more than I am called Kiteman - that is just his online name.

Go say hello on his Orange board if you want: don't worry if he doesn't respond as rapidly as I do - he has the same problem accessing the computer that Kitewife does ;-)



I told you to tell him to join! But for some reason, you seemed to ignore any comments I posted....

The time wasn't yet right.

I love #1 son's description.. Hello. I am #1 Son. Yes, my Dad is Kiteman. (does he know your famous?)

Wow the whole family that is pretty cool also welcome to the site.

Not the whole family - #2 son has a few years to go before he joins.

. If you are referring to the 13 yo age limit, that doesn't seem to be enforced. I'd much rather see an "under-aged," well-behaved, supervised, KiteKid on here than some of the members we already have. He can't be any worse than dear ol' Dad. heehee

But if one is going to quote rules and guidelines to others, then it behooves one to follow them oneself. It also behooves one to speak in passive, third person voice when one is making generalizations, doesn't it?

Hahaha. Excellent point. I still say the rules could be bent a bit, especially as this one dosen't seem to be a big deal, but I totally respect Kiteman for sticking to the rules.

To be honest, #1 son Roger-X is a few months short of the official age, but he has proven himself sensible and safe on other websites, is not frivolous with his personal details, and I think he is mature enough to join in.

Plus, I have subscribed to his ID and I know all his passwords.

pffft at age ten i was watching alien and browsing freely on the internets... Its good to keep an eye on him, but don't stifle him. His freedom will only help to improve his creativity.

pffft when I was old enough to use a computer, I was watching little kid shows on disney, and browsing freely on the Internet.
I'm completely serious...
note: My parents do care of my safety and well being.

I don't worry about him, really. The main reason I know his passwords is because he forgets them...

xD If I ever pm him I'll be sure to say "helpo" to ~~the censors~~ you...

I couldn't agree more. There are members like anarchist alien, thermoelectric, etc. They're allowed to stay, and I'd much rather Kite son 2 be here also rather than wait.

Yeah,same here.I am short of the minimum age and nobody told me to leave yet.I know that if you obey the rules you will be just fine.

than some of the members we already have.

Hey ! I resemble that remark.

Is that a Bobbie? Scary ! " I will be very nice to Him".

Well still a nice new addition to Instructables.

Wow- the next generation of the Kite dynasty, the Luke to your Anakin, the W to your HW. Roger-X has some large shoes to fill :)

Are we to expect projects in the not-too-distant, or is this just to give #1 his own voice and browsing identity?

I'm secretly pleased to see that his first comment ever was "I don't like K'nex" :D
Wait.. it's not secret any more...

Woo! Welcome #1 Son!

Now this is clearly a time to celebrate.

Done! :-) When is your #2 son is going to join instructables?

When he's ready and wants to, I suppose.

Welcome to ibles Kiteson#1! Both of my kids are iblers, and it's great to see another family that enjoys these things together!

haha! nice, i can see it now. Kiteman stands up from the computer to see #1 son stood there, kiteman activates his red light sabre, #1 son activates blue light sabre, a battle commences, and finally ends as #1 son throws kiteman into the depths of the house while kiteman tries to shoot electricity out of his fingers... If only he knew you were really his father...

I had a feeling it would be him when i saw the title! Congrats!
