    Mostly forums create areas for interactive text, avatars and smiley figures, but sometimes that structure sucks a bit in that, you sometimes can't meet the people you talk to (in some cases) quite often, and some you'll end up only knowing by screen name and what the Internet holds...

    And sometimes when you do meet up with someone, you get into a conversation about mutual forum friends, but then hit the proverbial wall at the screen name incident, where it goes something like this,

    "yeah i spoke to .....**sound of old record being manually reversed**... uh.. i spoke to DestructoKillaz01245LP , um.. the other day and we ..."

    ...and in that instant, where cyber meets solid world, you wish you didn't feel like such a dunce for only being able to refer to a forum friend by some silly screen name


    So, therefore i propose a "Hi my name is..." thread, just to introduce ourselves properly perhaps?

    Hello all, I'm Willem Lodewyk

    I introduce myself by Lodewyk, but for English folk I use Will, as its easier to remember, and I don't really like Willem, though my family uses that name for me...

    @guido: MTS - multiple tank syndrome. Something that most of us here suffer from.It is a condition where you cant help getting more tanks. :)

    Hello


    My name is Gilbert, but my my friends all call me.... Gilbert.

    My mother being Belgium, it's pronounced. Jeil' bear, but I gave up trying to educate the masses long ago, everyone ends up calling you Joubert.

    Do I look like a farm boy? Curses, being perfectly Bilingual!!!! :)

    i'm Keith, I think this thread is a good idea. Of course, I'll need it handy to call people by their real name around the braai... not sure how easy that will be!

    Well contrary to my pic... I am not Bob.... I answer to Ashley, Ash... and as of late... my wife has started calling me "jik-boy" because of the amount of new cloths I damage with Jik when cleaning tank equipment!
