    Hi there.

    As it’s good netiquette and good manners one introduces when joining a club/group/forum. This is a thread for new members but I encourage old/senior/veteran members to join in.

    Please feel free to share as much or as little information about yourself as you like.

    To break the ice I will start. (I’m keeping it efficient, you might want to do it in any other way, feel free to do so)

    So, now it’s up to you.

    PS: I was under the impression we had such a thread already but it seems that was on the old homepage? At least I couldn’t find anything.

    This is a great idea Sundancer, I’ll  chip in.


    I’ve only been around the site for about a year but I love this place and when I went to the boot camps I loved it even more.

    @sundancer it’s always a good refresher plus to see who is where and playing what.
