Hey there stonewall.
Are you a transfer from the old forum? because I don't recall you.
Then again, I've been a long time member, but hardly fanatical.
Because common sense, isn't all that common.

not many people seem to have found this thread so far. Would it be worth transferring it back to the Members´Lounge?

Let's wait a little while and see. Otherwise, we'll transfer it back where more people may see it.

I just found it. It would probably get a more attention there. At least a link to it anyway. :)

indeed a good idea as well.
Well maybe posting some more here does make a difference.

Let me introduce myself, all in style of the actual thread subject. I invite you all to do thesame!

Well hello, hi there.
My name is PanzerProfile, I'm 21 years old, and come from the western part of the Netherlands. (That ought to be specific enough for members coming from all over the globe ;) )
I've been with this forum now for about... 4 years, and it has always been great fun. Over the years I have grown into a frequent poster in the WW2 Hobbies section, since I practice (mostly German) modelling on 1/72 scale. I found quite a few very nice people there to share experiences and pictures with.
A couple of years back I also occasionally contributed to the ww2 tanks section, but my knowledge on those subjects has long run dry and the level of information shared over there is way beyond me. I really do like to read there though.
On a more personal note, other hobbies of mine are ice-speedskating, roadcycling and I study Human Geography.

That ought to do it!
Cheers,
PP.

Hi
I'm Dave
Well I'm 17 from Bristol in the UK, I'm 5'10 and 215-220 pounds (around 16 stone), I used to play alot of rugby as a prop/2nd row, hence the weigh, I'm currently studying A level History, Psychology, Archaeology and Philosophy and Ethics. I'm hoping to go to Uni and study War Studies.

I'm a target shooter and occasionally shoot clay pigeon. I personally own several rifles and de-activated firearms.
Firearms is my main area of knowledge.

Musically I'm a big fan of metal, but will listen to almost anything from Classical to Drum and Bass

Wow, this thread used to be much bigger on the old forum!

I'm Roel, I'm with the Old Guard, and I've been around almost since the beginning. For four years I was an Admin, but lately my many other activities have started demanding so much of my attention that I had to resign from that position. I still enjoy reading and participating in threads all over this forum every now and then.

As for myself, I'm currently 19 years old, from the Western Netherlands, and I study Ancient Military History (and some Chinese) at Leiden University. I've already attained my BA degree in 2007 and I hope to get my MPhil degree next year. There was a time when I could make serious contributions to the debates on this forum, but the level of expertise among the other members has risen incredibly and I sometimes find myself too intimidated to post...

Roel? No, the name does not ring a bell... :mrgreen:


Me, I'm Ricky. I'm another Old Guard, though not as Old Guard as Roel. Call me a Middle Guard. I've been an Admin for a couple of years now. I'm also now the highest poster in the new forum. I was second highest in the old forum, thanks to some Dutch guy...

utside of the forum I am 27 (28 later this year), married (almost 3 years and still happy), recent home-owner, and working as an Administrator in a University. I love history, and will happily discuss or learn about any era - except 'Early Modern' European which I find boring. ;)

"Later this year", he says! If you're not in the UK, best send your presents out tomorrow, they might just make it in time! :mrgreen:

Well I guess it's my turn..

I am Gunter (not real name), I was born in Poland and I have been living in Canada for almost 10 years. Next year I am going into Engineering at the university and history just happens to be one of my hobbies specifically WWII and Polish history (hard because much of it was lost and rewritten by Prussia, Russia and Austria after 1795). Ussualy I am a bit random and you will rarely get a straight answer out of me. My hobbies also include video games (who would have guessed).
