    Hi, I am a 26 year old male from Australia, looking to join The Older Gamer. I am interested in this site because:
    1) I often have trouble juggling home responsibilities with gaming time, and
    2) When i do get online i am often forced to endure some fairly inmmature flaming by the youngsters.

    I'm a fairly casual gamer, interested in FPS and RTS.

    PS I have read the user agreement, FAQ, and forum guidelines :)

    Hope to be typing more here soon!

    Welcome to TOG Gash, you have fulfilled the initial requirements and in time an admin will be along to review and approve the application. You will then be free to find the forum of your game of choice.
    I see you play FPS, if you've never given Americas Army a go, then pop down and see us in the forums. You can DL the game from Game Arena or swipe it off the front cover DVD of all good gaming mags!
    Once again, welcome.

    Thanks for having me all :)

    Badhead - I played AA for a bit, but got discouraged in the training missions! (how embarassing :p) - I couldn't get a passable score in the training mission where you have to shoot cardboard cutouts of terrorists in a wooden 'house' (maybe the problem was I kept shooting the good guys too?)
    ^^ - maybe I should stop being a wuss and give it another go...

    BTW, can i ask?: Is TOG a community or a clan or a bit of both? I am enjoying just reading the forums and hope to meet up with some toggers online soon, but is it common to use TOG as a clan tag in your handle etc?

    Thanks again for having me!

    Welcome Gash,

    Have you considered giving Unreal Tournament a try....down in the Core we don't worry about little things like can you shoot.... We just kill everything and anything that moves.

    Enjoy your time with us.... BTW we are a bit of both... Multiple Clans within one Clan and a Community.
