Hello GamingBoards.net!

My name is Andrew. It's a pleasure to meet you!


I have been a member of the ProBoards community since the late V2/beginning V3 era (going on 14.5 years!). I have been on both sides of ProBoards experience as a regular user and a staff member, and have enjoyed it through and through. I was in my early teens when I joined ProBoards (yes, I was at least 13 per COPPA), and it, as a whole looking back, grew over the years and became my safe haven, family, and source for various aspects of inspiration and experience, and will give me many memories for years to come. Some of my best friends that I met on my or other forums are still close friends in real life. I administered several then-successful forums back during the early days and ranged in every staff capacity from primary, co, or sole Admin, a GMod, a Mod, and various custom staff roles in between. I have been a member of countless current and past forums, and a guest of many more, including GamingBoards.net.

Although I have been a lurker of GB for a long time, I never joined it I would say it's partly because somewhere over the many years of investing myself in ProBoards, I hit a point where I needed to divest myself and take a break from being in any leadership capacity, or cull back my regular user capacity, as I had many non-forum life responsibilities that were taking precedence, including just growing older and experiencing new and different parts of life. I have never lost touch with ProBoards and still to this day I am on ProBoards Support lending a hand when I can to fellow peers in the community. I have finally decided to join GamingBoards.net today after my long hiatus, as I'll call it.

I look forward to engaging with everyone and enjoying the immersive gaming experiences we all love.


Andrew

Hey Andrew!

 It's great to see another ProBoards enthusiast amongst us! Our community here was founded back in 2005 so we've been growing through the years with PB - and I'm definitely satisfied with how the far we've made it here at GamingBoards.net alongside PB. It's always nice to have an experienced PB community member with us as we're still showing many members the ropes around here. I'm glad you've decided to make the move from lurker to registered, and hopefully active member.  ::)

 Hopefully, GamingBoards is able to provide you with plenty of gaming-related reading material and I look forward to seeing what you have to share with the community, and questions just ask! Take care, and welcome to our amazing community of gamers!

Welcome, Andrew,

What games do you play?

Hope to see you around here regardless, so many parts of GamingBoards can participate in.

Welcome aboard Andrew :D

It's nice to see new people join in the conversation, whether they are long time lurkers or not! And as a none ProBoard expert, I have to say that you used a lot of terms that are not familiar to be so I will simply smile and nod :).

I'm quite selective in my games so it's not always a whole genre I play through-and-through, but I can say for sure I don't like sports games. So definitely none of those in my collection (nothing against them, though, I've just never been much into sports literally or gaming-wise). I play console games along the lines of (non-exhaustively) Halo, Battlefield, Mass Effect, LEGO series (wife is not much of a gamer, but these are the games we enjoy together), GTA, Assassin's Creed, God of War.

As far as PC gaming goes, my then-top-of-the-line-PC I had custom built from the mid 2000's is so dated now it doesn't play Steam or other games in general well. Plus, I work tech support and sit behind a PC all day and don't really prefer to sit behind one at home. Maybe  if my gaming rig was up-to-date I'd have a change of heart, but console gaming is my preferred outlet.

Money is tight so I do not have the opportunities I once had to just go out and buy all current-gen consoles and a good custom PC. My take on it is to slowly upgrade one thing at a time. I just got my Xbox One X, so I'm loving it right now. Hopefully I'll get a PS4 (or Pro) so I can enjoy the latest God of War and the new Spiderman. Then, hopefully my PC, but who knows. haha

Don't worry. ProBoards is a really easy and user-friendly platform to learn. It's a great way to engage with other people and you can actually learn some useful skills along the way. The only way I'd say I'm an "expert" level, besides someone being an actual ProBoards, Inc. staff member, is from growing up through their software versions and knowing majority if not all of the in's and out's of the software like the back of your hand. This is true for anything you put your mind to, so give it a while and you'll be an expert as well.
