There are SO many ways to make new friends on here.
Making a thread in the Aloha! section will help start you off. Here you can introduce you and your furry friends to the members of the forum so they can welcome you and learn alittle more about you. You may have already made one!

Another way to make friends is in the DCT or Daily Chat Thread where you can have conversations with multiple people about anything (anything appropriate of course).
The DCT is located in the Coffee House section.
A new DCT is made everyday. It is titled something random.
For example the one shown says "A Toy Story DCT for Saturday 14th November"
