Roll Call and Community Standards!

An introduction to members of the Silver Seven community.

There have been a lot of changes in the Silver Seven community over the past few months and we're taking a moment to reintroduce ourselves!

Silver Seven is a community built on respect. Our community guidelines reflect this:

"Post your opinions. Disagree with others. Be respectful of others, even if you disagree with them. Everything done on this site must be done in a respectful manner."

Silver Seven is a safe space for Sens fans to talk, explore, and share our passion for this team. Silver Seven is a place where Sens fans can have fun and share some laughs. Our community is different; ideas and opinions are valued even when disagreed with and we foster an atmosphere of acceptance.

We introduce ourselves below, but we'd love to hear from you! Whether you've commented for a long time or would be part of a great delurking, we invite you to share a bit more about yourself! Use this template, or any you feel works for you!
