So I'm thinking on bringing us all together as a community. Say hello to one another whether you're a free, premium, or a team member. It  does not matter here imo. Share what you want with everyone. So....I will start; HELLO TO ALL OF YOU GAME-BANGERS.

 I've been around computers since 1984. Fast forward: I started to really get involved with computers when I worked at this computer recycling company back in 1997 here in St. Paul, Mn. I started out as a "separator". I worked on "the line". Which were parts that was already taken out of the cases (mobos, psu's, ram, fans etc). It was a revolving belt like one of those you see at a grocery store and it was fast paced! I had to identify the parts, separate, and put them in them in there perspective bins. Within a month or more I was promoted as a "tear down" employee. Pretty much the same thing but when the computers came in as "whole" that's where I came in. I disassembled the computer and again, put the parts in there perspective bin. Some came in as huge main frames.

After that VERY boring position at around 3 months or so I was promoted again. I was in charge of "Data Entry". I logged every part by the-said component by part, the parts manufacturer, model and every details into the main data base so the guys "upstairs" could see what's in process for evaluation so they could sell them on the "very young internet" at the time. Hence comes my next promotion. This time as a "white coat". I've been working there now for about about a year and a half or more.  I had to test the components integrity that was on my bench at the time. 2 years after that? I was a guy from "upstairs". 
 
Unfortunately for them, I left the company.  But at around 2003-04 I became a freelance computer tech. I've built numerous computers ranging from general usage to water cooled rigs.  To add that on all of this dramatic introduction?, I'm 56. I've been diagnosed with Bi-Polar type-2 since I was a child. I never graduated from high school or even could earn a GED because of a learning disability. All I know is I learned on a Apple Lisa back in '84 and never knew how a computer worked but yet? I'm a single father that raised a daughter on his own since she's been born and the people I've built computers for, They never complained or had a problem. Other than a minor hiccup which was the users fault 😉.

Hey Encrypted_God, that's a great idea with introducting each other :)
1984 is a long time... i can't compete with that. My first contact with a computer was 2014 when my dad bought me a laptop :D
The laptop was probably the worst purchase he ever did, since it totally got me into gaming and I would almost never leave the house again ^^

I'm 22 now and I started working for megadev 4 years ago where i'm mostly doing customer service in the forum, adding some of the new game trainers and recording/editing the youtube videos. Next to work I'm currently studying game art and 3d animation.

Heya! So I guess I'll continue with the introductions 😊

My first contact with gaming was when I used to watch my brother playing GTA 2 on our old family PC and quickly started playing the game on my own (don't tell my mum what I was playing there). But quickly, the one game would emerge that would spark my love for gaming altogether - World of Warcraft. To say I played the hell out of that game would be an understatement and with WotlK Classic releasing this month, I'm actually still playing it!

I've been with MegaDev since last year and am doing a bit of it all - you'll see me hopping around the forums and support tickets, mostly. Can't wait to see who else introduces themselves!

Also, a quick explanation of my user name (since I get TONS of questions about that): Back in Counter-Strike: Source times, I was part of a clan under the nickname of "pWny" but one of my clanmates always mispronounced my name as "porny" and since there were a lot of "pWnies" running around at that time, I simply went for the more unique user name with a nice little background story 😄

Then I guess I'll continue with the round of introductions :D 

My first contact with video games was as a very young child with the ancient Nintendo GameBoy and the red Pokemon Edition. I had the first computer game around 2000 when Sims was just becoming big. And damn, how much time I spent drowning innocent virtual people in pools. - Good old times :D 

My passion for games has never disappeared - even if the PC has fallen into the shadows and I became more of a console gamer, the PC had its comeback for me in 2016. And what a comeback. The first own, self-assembled PC was then promptly used as a start for Let's Plays on YouTube and shortly after that for streams on Twitch. Since then I play every day and every genre and the passion keeps growing :D

That's why I was happy to start at MegaDev 1,5 years ago as a working student. In the meantime, I've been working full-time as a junior marketing manager in the social media department for eight months now :D If you comment on our pictures on Instagram, Facebook, or the videos on TikTok, there's a very high chance that you'll talk to me :D So feel free to say hello :D

pooorney......FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS!!! THAT IS SOME FUNNY A** STUFF!!! I laughed so hard when I was reading that I thought I just did 100 crunches. That's a great story for sure. And @MrsChiNanami....well done. Could it also be interpreted as being a "apprentice"? or how about a "intern" at MegaDev. Either way...that's awesome. And to IronJulia....A shot in the dark but do you still have that lappy? 

One last thing I wanna share. The very first mobo I had I turned it into a Clock. No Kidding.

Freakin cool!!! that's really is awesome. Hang on to it. You won't regret it. Also...can we have this thread pinned? The conversations may or should be at a minimum but still, as per my original post it can be a good thing to make PLITCH a more of a welcoming community other than just a piece of software to new comers or us premiums. Just asking is all. I can't speak for the rest of the others but you can delete my comments to clean up the thread.
