      Also, the Rainbow Tour debuts after GCN Rainbow Road is there, so I’m just sharing some ideas for the Rainbow Tour. Feel free to help me out with some ideas!

      I’m kinda confused because you usually show yourself when posting. When I say show yourself, I mean you usually have your name up. I don’t think HKneverDIE really cares about us calling him out, he just posts his friend ID in the board, either for new friends, or for bumping reasons. No offense from me is intended toward HKneverDIE.
