Welcome to the The Older Gamers.
If you would like to join TOG, we ask that you make a new thread in the "Barracks" forum introducing yourself. Put the game you are currently most interested in into the title of your post too.
Here are some suggestions for your introduction post:
Some idea of your geographical location and the times that you play will also help. These things can also be entered in your USER CP (top left corner of screen). Updating this information allows people to know where you are in the world and helps coordinate events.
- What games are you currently play/looking to play with TOG?
- What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played?
- Why do you want to join TOG?
- Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share.

We advise you to use a non-free email address, we do not block registration with these email accounts ourselves but certain free providers email filters treat our email as junk or spam & you not receive our confirmation reply email.
eg: If you use hotmail, our emails will hit your junk email box straight away!
AOL email servers indiscriminately block all emails originating from the TOG server's IP address considering it to be SPAM. We have contacted AOL multiple times about this but all requests to AOL technical support to have this rectified have been ignored.
So if you use a @AOL or @Netscape address to register, you will NOT get a confirmation email and will be unable to complete your registration.
Feel free to contact AOL about their "one rule fits all" email policies, We are afraid we have given up!
Additionally we do not go through the trouble of confirming our address in spam filters that require manual intervention (eg: Earthlink).
If you have a spam filter in place that requires human intervention you will NOT be getting the confirmation email.
