Not one for long wordy novels so here goes

 

My name is Lance, I've been around the New Zealand gaming/LAN scene for far too long. This includes helping run various Quake vanilla and CTF competitions (first hosted on Paradise and later Xtra), Battlefield 1942 via Xtra, Battlefield Vietnam, and Battlefield 2. More recently I spent 8 years immersed in World of Warcraft before advent of wife followed by kids meant online time had to go :)

Welcome to Geekzone!

I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be more productive.

First, everyone follows the Forum Usage Guidelines (FUG). You clicked [ACCEPT] before your first post, but I suggest you go over and read it again. Any questions, ask away.

There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our Geekzone Guide.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Welcome to Geekzone.  

 

Did you carefully weight up the pros and cons of wife&kids vs a life of gaming?

Welcome to GZ.

 

I'm guessing you already know that we talk more about gaming here than family? Although, we have tried to help give some fatherly advice. smile





Please keep this GZ community vibrant by contributing in a constructive & respectful manner.
