Hey i've been lurking for some time, a few years now actually. I used to come here when i wanted to laugh or learn what games were coming out, also that POKEMON THREAD where ash was facing Alain THAT CHAMPIONSHIP match THREAD. That thread made me want to join, the memes were glorious.

The amount of salt and fallout in that thread made my day. I'm looking forward to the next one, if ash contends for another championship match.
Glad you finally joined. I'm not even heavily invested and I was upset. Poor Ash.

I hope you enjoy your time here. If you need anything or I can help in any way, just reach out to me.

We have a thread to get your ideas up for you to use until you can post them yourself https://www.neogaf.com/threads/neo-...ull-members-will-post-on-your-behalf.1456224/ Many of us will be happy to post them for you.

Welcome to NeoGAF. Congrats on being one of the Gaffers : )

Welcome to the forum ...have a look around if there is something that interests you and we don’t have it feel free to drop us a pm .and we can set you up a thread ..as long as it doesn’t involve Velcro and some peta violations I’m pretty sure we can cover it.

Hi, I've been lurking NeoGAF since 12 years or more. I had an account once but it was deleted after a long stretch of inactivity and restructuring I guess.

After some time I tried to register again and every e-mail I have was refused (German ISPs apparently don't count). Because of this, frankly, ridiculous policy (I mean, screening by e-mail address for a gaming forum? Really? That's how you get the 'good' people?), it took until now for me to be able to re-register.

I love games and like reading about them. I also hope to contribute here and there, thank you and have a good day/night!

Thank you for coming back to NeoGAF. Perhaps @EviLore can look into your previous account.

Long time lurker. I lurked on GAF for many years before getting an account. There was already so much content I didn't feel the need to get an account until a few years ago.

If you need anything feel free to reach out to me. Many here would be glad to help you if you need something.

See you around Gaffer

Thanks for the kind welcome!

Actually, originally, I basically only wanted an account for remembering read threads and other features, I was content with lurking, too, otherwise. But I'll try being a little more active, too, especially now that this place has considerably slowed down :messenger_winking:

Welcome! I'm fairly new to GAF myself still, so if you wanna be newbie buddies that'd be cool! Anyway, it's good to have you, and I hope you enjoy your (hopefully lengthy) time here. :)

If you'd just ignored that distress call and picked up your bonus like any normal Belter, could have been different. Compassion, eh.

Hi I'm 5609481

I've lurked for quite awhile... but I signed up the other day and thought I would start posting.

A little about me: I work at a factory and I have a bitchin' ride. I like heavy metal music and the 4th generation of video games.
Thank you for signing up and posting. We will try to make sure your decision to stop lurking and become a Gaffer was worth it.

Now since you put it out there... whats this bitchin' ride? Fast?

Logged back in today! I won some achievements :)

Was a long time on and off lurker before I decided to join (been in the shadows for approximately a decade or so). Wish I'd join sooner, but alas, better late than never!

Might as well reintroduce myself, as I seem to disappear for long stretches of time :goog_grinning_sweat:

My name is Ornella (you may call me Nell, Nellie or Nella) and I'm a 25 year old German/American currently residing in the UK (been here for over 5 years now) :goog_giggle: I enjoy gaming, photography and lazying the day away in bed.

Hope I'll manage to stick around this time and become part of the community!

Hi, Nella, it's good to have you here! The community is starting to become much more inclusive, so you actually joined at a great time! Just be yourself, and I think you'll have a lot of fun here. <3

Glad you decided to join us. Pro Tip... NeoGAF and laying in bed pair well together.

Hello, I knew about Neogaf for years now, but was always discouraged from registering because of need for payed email adress.
Usually, I'm on MyAnimeList, but on some other forums from time to time, like Reddit, where I asked about you folks.
I love starting threads, and probably have made just on MAL more than 5000, don't even wanna know how much all over the Internet.

I heard you were bunch of arrogant elitists who ban everyone who doesn't agree with you, but from what I saw, I always appreciated how you guys value gaming, especially old school stuff.

Besides that, I'm big fan of games (of course), movies, anime, porn, and little donkeys.

I hope we will get along.

Don't take this Troll-chan seriously; I am a troll sometimes, but I am a good troll - although, I only do that in some not so important Reddit topics, when I need to release myself from the worst inside me.

EDIT: Just one more thing, when will developers realize that game should first and foremost run at 60fps, and then they can beautify it with nice textures?
I tried to appreacite all that stable 30fps cinematic thing, but I can't...
I can forgive older games, but those made post 2010 on stronger consoles...

You heard correctly! :messenger_beaming:

Actually, it's just me. Everyone else is humble and kind.

who ban everyone who doesn't agree with you
Nope, that part is no longer true. The worst is you might be expected to stand up for your opinion if challenged, that's all.

Hello all!

My name is StarlightLotice (mix between the Starlight Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog and the nickname of Frimelda Lotice from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2 (points for getting the reference!)

Lerked for almost 9 years and have seen the mass migration of most users to Era. Decided to give this place a go now. :)

I am a huge SEGA fan but I also pay a number of games from the likes of Nintendo, Falcom, Sony's Japan Studio and smaller developers such as IntiCreates.

Despite SEGAs flaws I still love their games and you will see me agree about most of their boneheaded decisions but will defend their games as I honestly love them too much!

My hobbies include Video Games (of course), Food, Learning others Cultures and fantasising.. (saw a post about Porn and give two thumbs up)

I probably won't post that much but I hope to contribute what I can and get involved with the Gaming Community in partiuclar! (Now I just need a good Avatar to set up)

Thank you for signing up going from lurker to Gaffer.

FYI we have a new Food OT. https://www.neogaf.com/threads/food-ot-gafeteria.1469605/

If you need help or anything else, feel free to ask. We’d be glad to help.

Awesome! I will look at that a lot probably. :)

No problem! I will likely ask if we have a dedicated SEGA Thread to talk about the games! (Used to reading about the consoles).

Oh...I tried to add a picture from my Google Drive in the Console Wars Image/GIF thread but I am not used to how it uploads. Is there a way to show the image without using a link?

Much appreciated. :)

Thanks again. I know it works from Social Media but unsure about Google Drive (you turn on Link Sharing but after that I have no clue)

Fair enough! I noticed it doesn't have to be about malpractice or the Industry in general. Mine is a funny mixture of two games I played that I spliced together. :)
