You can't lead the community unless you know the community.
This all came about from four lines on the IRC. In fact, essentially one. Here they are, just so you can see.
<Fingersonthefrets> haha i love how lenny says hi and bye to everyone, even when he doesn't/hasn't had much to do with them
<Lenny> Yeah. I should get to know the people.
<Lenny> In fact... that's a great idea.
So, what is this topic for? It's a place somewhat like the "introduce yourself" topic on the old forums, but I think this will be more meaningful. In this topic I want everyone to post a bit about themselves. It doesn't have to be much, but don't make it several pages long because that won't get read.
The aim of this topic is for members to get to know everyone else a bit better. And, more self-centred-ly, so I can get to know you guys a bit better.
Because, hey, if people like me are going to be interacting with the community a lot - and let's face it, we are - then we should get to know the community a bit better than we do.
I'll start. You don't have to put your name or anything like I will, but hey, I'm a pretty open person. If future people could put their info a border that looks neater - I've used #808080 as the border colour.
15 - turning 16 on the 2nd of November
Australia - more specifically, Canberra.
What I like:
Music and computers. I do a lot of composing and performing of music, as well as listening to lots of music. I have a podcast
where my music is if you're interested. As far as computers go, I think they're awesome. I've recently learnt HTML and CSS, so I can design my own site
. Plus, I figured it'll be a very useful to know for the future.
Plans for Uni:
I'm hoping to do a combined music and science degree
, with a major Composition in music, and a major in Computer Science in science.
I think that's a pretty good description of me. If you've got any questions about me or this project, just ask.
To summarise, thanks to everyone who contributes. I really look forward to reading everything that everyone says
, and I really hope this project will go somewhere.
