    Just a quick he from me.

    1. What games are you currently play/looking to play with TOG?
    I am currently returning to WOW and leveling up an new char on the server with TOG having been invited by a rl friend.
    1. What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played?
    I think the first machine besides arcade and not including a very basic game console would have been the electron.
    I loved the text based football manager back then, prefered it to the sick man version of it on the spectrum.
    I liked a very basic game on the BBC micro 2 called Kingdoms...
    1. Why do you want to join TOG?
    I am a pretty casual gamer currently, just looking forward to some relaxing chilling between things.
    I have a rl friend who is a member so it seemed logical to at least have a friendly face from the start.
    1. Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share
    I was an Eve player since the start though have left it for a few years now.
    I have played wow previously on different servers.
    I enjoy getting away in our moho when we are permitted and we have a young Border Collie who keeps me on my toes.
    I also have 5 grandkids...

    Hello Suladriel and welcome. Good news...

    Congratulations! You have passed our stringent don't die before 25 application requirement and have made it into TOG.

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that flaky game you have signed up for. There are other flaky games which all have their own division and other things of wonder, joy and wtf.

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
    Operations (The name you picked is stupid and you want to change it? Policies and stuff).

    :D

    I thought I had done something wrong, was second guessing myself and all sorts :)

    Hi! Suladriel from another new arrival here at TOG...

    You reminded me my first computer was an Amstrad CPC464 - basically a keyboard with an integral tape drive (yes a music cassette drive!!!)

    I learned basic coding from that lump of plastic and had so many hours of fun, not to mention hair-tearing days when it wouldn't run a program after 30 attempts.

    My friend had a ZX Spectrum and we would spend hours copying code from a computer magazine, line by line, only to discover there must be a syntax error in the print and it just wouldn't run!!....gggrrrrr!

    It all seems like it was yesterday - but of course it was more like 35-40 years ago!

    Great to see you here and look forward to hearing from you soon...

    Mike
