I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

First post! :O ;) The old thread was kind of dead, so at least this one revival is probably a very good thing.

I'm Kumquats (AKA KQ)! I started playing this silly game online when I was only 15 or so and wasted several hundred of my parents' dollars losing tournaments that they then made me pay back. Whoops! I was never as prolific a "young" poster as Zinger was, though, and nowadays my age of 21 -- though still low for a beeber! -- is far more respectable. Also, I only waste my own money now. :P

I am entirely capable of carrying conversations by my lonesome and have been a dependable member of the /bbs roster over the years, from ONS block to being one of the first v3 readopters and to the present day. Me and bubba spent some lonely months in there with the whole v3 transition! I think I have a reputation for flying off the handle when something goes wrong in a game and describing in intimate detail every bit of the situation while also very very liberally cursing. Whoops (again)! Also, I attempt to maintain the image of being a darling and adorable creature, but my mean temper probably gets in the way of that. Rawr.

This is the most recent picture I have of myself, taken before I had to go and be formal at an event held by the non-profit I'm currently affiliated with (a state-wide LGBT organization). You can only see half my face -- which kind of makes my nose look bigger than it is -- but what the heck, half my face is better than none of my face. Imagelinked because I am shy!

Outside of MTGO I mostly keep to myself but I make frequent outings to the local nightclubs to go dancing, am fond of building dioramas, and remain politically interested and active through community involvement. I'm also single, in case anyone is interested. Har har.

I entirely expect to be the only post in this thread for a good while, but that's in character. When I say I can carry a conversation by myself, I mean "can carry several thousand words' worth of conversation without anyone else saying a word, and does so with some frequency." Come and listen to me ramble sometime! :C

I'll post my picture if you post yours. ;)

Anyway I'm Nick, and my username online is GravespwnGoddess (don't ask). My birthday was yesterday and I just turned 22, so I guess that's somewhat notable. I still can't grow a beard longer than an inch which is a bit odd. I haven't shaved my mustache in a year and you can barely even see it. My profile says I've been around here since February 2005, which seems about right. I when I started playing Magic Online I joined the PDC community within a week and haven't left it since. I don't post quite as fast as my fellow beebers, but I still visit the forums almost every day. I can also carry on a conversation by myself, but it's awkward when someone else walks into the room and hears me talking to myself.

Outside of this game I like watching anime, though mostly shojo instead of shonen (maybe that's why I have the weird username). I play drums on Rock Band quite a bit, when they're not broken. When they do break I like to fix them myself, so I've modded quite a few parts on the drum kit. I also like fixing other things when they happen to break (I finally got a dremel for my birthday so hopefully I'll get some good use out of it). I've also been doing a lot of baking recently, so if you come and visit let me know ahead of time so I can bake you a pie or something else. Sadly, I don't get out too much, but it's alright.

Since you wanted a picture I'll link you to one. It's from my cousin's wedding in April (the person in the picture is also a cousin but she's not the one getting married). In case you can't tell I'm the one on the right. http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/4532/28508312082883475452883.jpg

Oh and Kumquats, you mentioned you're single. Well so am I! So I guess that counts as someone being interested.

The one with the cleavage hugging the bearded dude?
Darn it, you figured out my secret. Guess I'll have to post a better picture next time.
I'm still Algona.

Happily married to Mrs. 'Gona for a decade in September. She's brutal competition in Settlers of Cattan. Kicks my ass regularly at Texas Hold'em, she always has the nut flush against my King high.

50th birthday in a couple weeks, MOL player since startup, Magic player since 1994, gamer since birth. Got it from both parents, Dad is a vicious card and pool player and the only person I've ever met who can win at craps, Mom got RSS from too much Nintendo, loves Civ II, and plays a mean game of Settlers.

Yeah, he's still here, also.

Couple pictures of me have popped up over the years, in the /join bbs live '07 threads and more recently on the mothership:

That's me on the right.

Been working at the same job since '92, bought the company in Feb 08.

Currently sicking in SCR Swiss drafting.
Thank you, Erik.
So that's you? So what are you doing with your a framed uncut sheet of Urza's Legacy rares? We want pics of it, pronto!

I've dropped 'hints' that it was Algona at least twice.
...he hasn't said anything about what he's 'gona do with it though...

Well I must have missed that. I don't read very thread on the forums.
He should give the sheet to me, I need help financing my return to college and it would do a fair job.
I always thought Kirby was a girl name, but then again I also used to think all Robins were male...

I happen to know both a male Robin and a female Robin.

Well... that was easy. I'll be posting mine at some point, but still, you guys could make my job a little harder.
I started out from a joking comment made in the Anger thread (see my sig). Then the whole April Fools "f"-username thing. But, I'm still just a secondary persona. So, it's been fun.
I unofficially died late August of last year. I will officially die in the near future. Do not mourn.

I'm bored enough an the turkey isn't done, time for some dead thread revival.

So here we go, I'm 22 live in Phila, PA. My smoking is nothing compared to the air born cancer infecting the neighborhood do to the water treatment, fuel and chemical facilities around me. Been playing magic off an on since 7th edition and will soon sign up to MtGO.

I don't do much other then play guitar, and constantly kick members out of the band. I like fixing stuff, mainly my POS Magnum which soon as I'm done paying for will promptly be entered in the first demo rally I find.

I'm also big on computer gaming an breaking stuff. Punched out a flat screen tele, and tore the tray out of a 360. I then later proceeded to blow it to bits with an air gun and axe, but thats a tale of drunken stupor best left untold, may post the video at some point though. Cry

Anyway I think that's enough, I'll get a picture up later.

Happy Thanksgiving all, eat some bird, sip some sauce, and enjoy the holiday. Tongue out

Yeah, I definitely don't wear pants, ever.

I'm betting if I had an awesomely unique name like tempest's I would be googable too...but it seems that Joseph Hill was also a famous reggae singer...

I'm going to harass the Renton offices sometime in late August.
I'll be the one outside with a picket sign that reads, "No more Mythics! Down with Karaoke!"

And I fully expect Lee to snipe me from a 2nd story window.

Guess what? Chicken butt.
