    Welcome to Chicken Smoothie!!

    Hello, hello :D We all welcome you to this wonderful site.
    I hope you will enjoy your time here, and take advantage of this wonderful community by visiting and chatting on the forums. Who knows you might just find a few friends here! ^^

    If you have any questions about the site, or the forum and are in need of some help or guidance, we would be only more than willing to help you out!



    Wesley - She is very knowledgable with forums and formatting. Can provide step by step instructions and/or screenshots to help you along with processes. She loves explaining how to do things and helping people with real life problems, and can provide advice for sticky situations. If you're looking for help on trades, she can give you some, but you just may want to go find a different General Helper. ;) Don't be afraid to PM her if you need some personal help. She's always up for a good chat.

    Lady Masquerade - Lady has been on ChickenSmoothie for nearly five years, and knows quite a big amount on pet and item value, making her nifty when it comes to fair trades. She knows a lot about coding, and though she isn't much of an artist, she still knows about a couple art programs, Oekaki included. Her skills mostly lie in literature, and the adoptable boards. She is good when it comes to rules among these two topics, and is quick to answer any questions dealing with them, considering she's moderated different topics for a long time.. Lady's very friendly and doesn't mind even the silliest of questions, always looking forward to helping someone out or making a new friend.

    Kyar - Kyar is very experienced in trading and can often be found helping on the "Is This a Fair Trade?" thread. He also enjoys giving trade advice and tips on how to trade for certain pets. He speaks a fair amount of Spanish but isn't quite fluent. He loves to help out with general questions about the forums, Oekaki, and BBCode. He is a member of the LGBT community and is happy to talk to others about their experiences or give advice (though he's not perfect!). His inbox is always open for any kind of questions or for anyone just looking to chat!

    ZEL - ZEL is fluent in German and English and has been on CS since 2008. They have a good memory when it comes to release dates and CS history, which makes them very helpful at identifying pets and items, or explaining the various features of the site (in as much detail as you like). They're mostly found on the General and CS Adopts boards, and also hang out on the German thread on the International board. Though they're not really into roleplaying, they love writing and coming up with characters. They're also generally very sociable, so don't be afraid to send a message their way! (PS: Despite their username, they're only one person, not three~)

    Orchid Sprig - Orchid Sprig has been a member since 2009 and a Helper since 2011. She was a moderator for a few years, so she is very well versed with rules across the site. She also is good at BBCode formatting for signatures and posts. If you need any help with the forums in general or coding, feel free to send her a PM.

    lucky333123 - Lucky333123, also know as Lucky, is an experienced trader, role-player, and has some experience in BBCode. She is often found in the "Is this a fair thread?" as well as, various other threads. She loves to help out people when possible, thus you can often see her floating around the forums. Feel free to say hello, because she does no bite -- seriously, she does not bite. She will always do her best to answer you questions and is always open to anyone who wants to chat.

    Ashki - Ashki has been a player since 2011 and is very experienced with any sort of trading, including C$. She is often found on the Fair Trade Thread, Pet Worth Thread, and C$ Worth Thread. She is comfortable with BBCode and all parts of the site, so feel free to PM her if you have any questions, or if you just want to talk. In addition to English, she is fluent in Dutch and knows a bit of German as well. Blaine is more than happy to help you work through any problems - her inbox is always open!

    Irisidium - Irisidium has been on CS since 2013, and has quite a lot of trading experience, and knowledge of rarities. He has a little experience in roleplaying, is very comfortable with BBCode, and can always help out with signature troubles. He is most commonly found in the trading and fanclub areas of the site, and his inbox is always open for any messages.

    ☆αℓρнαƒιяєωⓞℓƒ☆ - alphafirewolf has been part of the CS community since 2012, and is fluent in both English and Chinese. She is familiar with most of the rares list and would be happy to answer any questions that are related to trading or pet values. Apart from those, she will also gladly help you with any general forum or basic BBCode questions. Alpha can be easily found on various forum games and CS discussion threads. Her inbox is always open!

    Burrito Bunny - Burrito Bunny has been on CS since 2014, and speaks English as well as French. She would love to help out with anything relating to the forums. She is an experienced roleplayer and would be happy to help you with your writing. In addition to that, she can also assist with formatting posts or signatures, since she has developed an advanced understanding of BBCode. Bunny spends most of her time here in the artistic community. Although she usually draws traditionally, she has basic knowledge of Oekaki and its tools. Feel free to send her a message at any time for any reason!

    Wobbuffet - Wobbuffet has been a member of Chicken Smoothie since early 2016. She is pretty experienced when it comes to BBCode and Chicken Smoothie in general, and loves answering questions relating to either. Wobbuffet can usually be found hanging around the Oekaki forums, especially the Adoptable Oekaki section. She loves getting PMs, and her inbox is always open!

    You can always find us anytime, in the Legend provided at the bottom of the forum pages:

    GH FAQ


    Q. What exactly are "General Helpers"?

    A.
    Tess wrote:The General Helpers are regular users who have volunteered to help out, and they will do their best to answer questions you have about the site or forum.


    Q. Can I be a General Helper?/How do I become a General Helper?

    A. If Tess decides she needs more General Helpers, she will likely make a post about it in the 'Announcements' section of the forum. Last time members needed to apply with a form that she supplied. It would likely be the same way in the future.

    Keep in mind that, if you're aspiring to be a General Helper, there is no better way than by your own examples. if you truly love helping members, you should do just that :]

    Q. Do General Helpers have Special Powers?

    A. Totally, we can shoot lasers and all that cool stuff. Well no, not really. We are just a group of volunteer members, the same as any normal member. The only thing different we have is the Salmon pink name, and this is to make it easier for new members, or members with questions to pick us out of the crowd.

Hehe *stalks* ;)
I asked them all to tell me about themselves more or less, and then tried to put it together in a small, information packed blobs lol.

Thank you for the compliments, I just followed Tess' suggestions on how she wanted it written out :)

it would also be cool if you could give descriptions for everything like a oekaki guide for beginners, a forum guide, a adopting-a-pet guide, you get the idea(:

Do you mean visual guides? There are a few guides for navigating the forums already, and as for adopting that is pretty basic and can be explained easily if someone has confusion.
Oh and LIG created a throrough guide for these things here Tips for newbies!!!.
I should probably add that to the list of Helpful links.

Hello :)
Thank you emily ♥ and I am sorry things didn't work out for you. Either way, there is definitely nothing wrong with you sticking around to help out new players as you said. Just something simple as welcoming is always such a good and nice thing to do for our new players.

Definitely- I didn't get welcomed like this when I was a newbie, but I think the new members should now. ;)
