Hello Iím Myriads.
Thatís Mir-i-ads, if you were wondering about how itís said. I have been using the handle since 1983 on a primitive chat system on my collages mainframe. I chose it for a lot of reasons, but Myriad means Ďmanyí and at the time, almost every one who met me had a different take on what I was about. So I found it to be a amusing choice. And it stuck.
Iím in my 40ís and my work history has been varied. Iíve been a Professor, a published writer (prose and poetry), a manager of a major corporate mail room, done a lot of freelance work of various sorts, and am now in retail management. I have chosen a quiet path in my work life that is low in stress, but also low in cash. Life is always a trade.
Iíve always been a man of many interests, and it leads to me being a listener and watcher. I enjoy seeing how people get things done, how systems work, and what alters the flow of things. Iím apt to observe for a good bit and act with a lot of information.
Hobbies, I have a few. Currently a lot of time goes into a online game, Final Fantasy XI, which I see as my main escape these days. But I also collect coins, comics, and design jewelry. I enjoy science fiction as my pleasure reading, with a special like for alternate world material. I follow psychology and sociology deeply, and keep rather current on nanotechnology developments.
My base philosophies circle around the concepts of Personal responsibility (denoted by me, as mindfulness) and the just exercise of it with relation to ones own Will, and the Will of other sovereign people.
I came to be involved with the TMF as a result of my enjoyment of tickling as part of my greater fetish/paraphillia which I term as ĎResponse Controlí for lack of a better term. In short, I get off on provoking a response in my partner. Tickling was one of the earliest paths to this I discovered, and it still holds a special place in my heart as a result. But I enjoy many forms of Ďcausingí; Bondage, D/s play, simply causing an orgasm, giving a massage, and psychological play works also. I am a Dominate in nature.
My online history is nothing special, I spent a lot of time simply watching AMT when I came online in the mid 90ís, though if you dig you may find a post or two from me there. And as the first version of the TMF evolved I was a very active poster there, leading in post count. Sadly that forums content was erased by its owner, and is now lost. I was promoted to moderator and then Admin as the TMF made itís transfer to the current system you all now enjoy.
My philosophy for running the TMF has always been based around the ideas that I feel every one has something to say of value, and that they should have a chance to. I desire to see people join our community, enjoy it in a way that enriches their life, as they need, and in turn, perhaps give back to all of us new and unique views.
Iíve always worked to allow the widest range of attitudes to be openly expressed here. But I have drawn the line at actions that drive away others, or try to limit the voice of others. If you cannot interact with respect and appreciation of others opinions here, you will loose your ability to voice yours. You can disagree here, but you will not disrespect others as you do it. Civility is important to me.
Just because you CAN say something, does not mean you always should. Mindfully exercise your speech. Respect your fellow members as individuals with value, and you will not have issues here.
In the better part of a decade that I have helmed the forum, it, and I, have had a number of successes that please me greatly. We have seen a massive growth of people being more open with their fetish, as we slowly climb to 100,000 users we see more and more members posting pictures and speaking up. Our female membership has gone from a tiny minority to a huge visible and outspoken group. Media of all gender combinations is now in wide production and discussion here, and easily downloaded, easy to find and obtain. Gatherings, many which are organized upon the TMFís platform, now happen almost every other month. The forum continues to be the communities hub.
I look forward to helping guide the TMF for many years to come. Itís always a challenge, but rewarding.
All in all, I enjoy talking to people, and hope that any member that wants to talk with me feels free to drop me a PM. Iím always open to hearing from folks, and like to hear new views.
problems with the room..everyone is being messaged that they need a password forthe room and then we are linked to some other strange chatroom..help???
The room has been hacked, and we have taken steps to report it. Now we wait.
I get such interesting posts in my hello thread.
I definetly agree on the interesting posts bit. Maybe we can spice it up a bit!
I would have never figured out your name is pronounced Mir-i-ads, it's good to know that. :3. Though I guess I could've just read your introduction post earlier...Oh well! I only recently checked some of the staff introductions, though I've been visiting this forum for quite a while!
(On that note, they're all really interesting!)
Do you still play FF XI? I've never played it myself, but I hear it was quite good, if hard to level up, or something. :3. I've only ever really played one online game, and that's World of Warcraft. But I'm a big fan of the final fantasy series, so I know a little about XI too.
What about other gaming preferences? What kind of games do you enjoy?
Also...I've always thought I'm crazy for spending so much time in front of my computer, but I've always been a nerdy girl, and I don't party much or anything. x3.
But I swear, you beat me easily! Whenever and I mean whenever I check this forum, you're shown on the "Who's Online" List! There were times where I thought you must be a robot! Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating but it feels like you're always there anyway! x3.
Don't get me wrong, It's a good thing! Nothing worse than a forum without an active administration. :3. I admire your dedication to this site!
I would have probably sent you a PM about this sometime, I've been pondering on it for a while (like I do with everything, we're similiar in that aspect!) but after seeing this thread and the last post before yours, I decided to just post it here. :3.
I hope you had a nice new years eve, and I hope 2010 will be a great year for you and the TMF!

Reason: Do I have to give one?! x3.
Yes, I still play FF XI, it's one of the ways I relax. A place to unwind. I have played no other online games, or even off lines ones. My playing FF XI was an odd thing that I did on a whim, and it worked out. I don't play anything else other then the occasional facebook game.
I check the forum several times a day, to see if anything needs attention, or if mail needs answering. So that is one reason I show as so active.
Thank you for the kind words, and I hope your 2010 is good also.
