I first signed up after lurking for a bit I for Project MU (as Wishi not this username) and have since attempted to suck up every bit of ARG goodness that I could.
Anyhow, give it another year and I'll be going into uni. Most probably doing a comp sci degree of some sorts.
I spend way too much time on here, and computers in general, and like to dip my hand in everything and learn a bit about as much as I can.

You don't want to know anything about me. Spacely only keeps me around for my 1337 Flash skillz.

Might as well.
I "played" Majestic. I say played because the game "played you." I watched the Beast out of the corner of my eye, then wandered off. Checked the boards on occasion and came back to dabble in CTW, Search4E, etc. Again, wandered off due to schedule but kept reading the boards on a regular basis. Now I'm back again...Because I'm posting...As this is evidence of.
About me. I'm a graphic design graduate here in Ontario. Still got another year in me for school so I'm heading back because I feel I haven't given them enough money yet.

I've lurked through the Beast, LockJaw, Chasing the Wish. I played Majestic, but after the Beast, it was a major let down. I'm currently playing AWARE, Urban hunt and whatever the bee game is being called.
I'm a librarian in Boston. I don't play as many computer games as I used to, but I read constantly and i drink too much tea.
I've been a member for almost 2 years, yet i only have 115 or so posts...I guess I'm just not too talkative. Someday i hope to get an actual avatar...

Excellent idea, steve.
I'm Rob, of course. I'm a student at UBC in Vancouver. I edit other student's papers for small fees and food. I play the bass guitar. Badly. I am a magician.
I've been lurking in the ARG world since the beginning. I was put completely in awe by the sheer liquid awesome that the Beast was. I lurkeed through Lockjaw, paying a bit less attention. I briefly came out of hiding to try and participate in the SecondState beta. At some point I fell off the surface of ARGs and completely missed CTW and Metacortex.
A recent pang of nostalgia prompted me to visit, where I discovered a thriving community here at UF. I browsed around, and the very next day, the honey came in the mail. I participated in Bees until Urban Hunt caught my attention. Now I am taking on the task of writing the Guide of UH.

I'm Lance_Lake. The Black Sheep of the ARG Community.
I hate puzzles. Loathe them. So why am I here?
I enjoy the other aspects of ARG's. For example, social engineering.
I've also PM'ed a few times and I'm currently working on an ARG myself that will have no puzzles to figure out. Only Characters to interact with.
Doomed to fail? Most likely.

My turn I guess...
I played Majestic, but didn't find UF or similar sites until Push,Nevada. My first big ARG was Chasing the Wish.
About Me? Well, um... I have a CompSci degree with a Fine Arts minor, but no job. Well, unless you count raising a 2 year old a job . One day I'll go back to school, get updated and get a job of some sort.
I spend most of my free time perusing the forums and chat here, playing video games and doing various outdoor activities.

Oh, and I have two insane cats.
Hey, all. I am neither an old-timer nor a n00b. I joined up back in October for Project Mu (you might better know it as the Metacortex/Matrix ARG.)
Words and phrases to describe what I do: software engineer, Open Source advocate, technical documentation, business-to-business eCommerce security, router firmware, candlelight dinners, long walks on the beach. Oops, wrong profile.
A yup, that's about it. I don't have as much ARG-time as I used to, but I try not to let that stop me.

Hi. I'm cpip. Call me Pip. Or C. Or Dude. New to ARGs, came aboard with I Love Bees because a friend mentioned it. And away I went.
Glad to be here, hope I can help. So far I'm just a font of shameless spec and the occasional semi-useful observation.
Hope to be in a bunch more of these!

And the new don't know the oldtimers, so we could introduce back, I think.
Aliendial. Lawyer, USA. Been around since the early days. Lurked during the Beast. Played euchre during Lockjaw. Same old same old.

Okay, I'll go first.
My name is parm, and I'm an alco- no, wait; wrong group.
I'll try again.
My name is parm, and I'm a video game programmer from the UK. I wandered over here as a result of some gossip posted on some industry forums regarding the ILoveBees thing. I'm interested in the game as a player, but also as a sort of watcher - seeing how the other players think and speculate on the game; there's certainly some people out there with vivid imaginations :)
(And no, I don't work for Bungie, or Microsoft, or anyone else who's got anything to do with the bees thing (to the best of my knowledge, natch). I'm a player of the game as much as anyone else.)

OK, so you're new and want to introduce yourself. Here's the place.
