Darth, the newcomers may think you mean episode one!

I'm older than most... the ages of my three kids sum to 10 years old, if that helps.

Good point, although I administer the website, and I reside in the US, and until recently the forums were hosted in the US.

I've won wargames competitions (including a UK national - which I only entered to make up the numbers, and nothing could make me defend the title
Well you certainly have a much richer gaming background than me! :)

This is a big reason why I like playing against the AI. Playing against other humans ends up with people getting too competitive and then too serious.

Even when I play multiplayer games, I like playing them co-operatively against the AI, most of the time. Li'sar loves to play Wesnoth this way too :)

(Or anyone else who goes to UK SF conventions? I'm around every Easter and some other cons...)
Some local Wesnoth get-togethers could be good :)

You could consider consider trying to make it to Bordeaux for the LSM to meet up with even more Wesnoth developers and players.

Well I've had considerably longer to practice... The nearest I've ever got to coding is perl scripts for a PBeM I run, and a load of shell scripts for my work as sysadmin... (learnt perl for sysadmin, but tend to just use csh anyway... but for parsing and manipulating databases for PBeM game perl is great!)

I'd most likely play the same way. Play a fair amount of Age Of Empires (and derivatives) one my small home lan like that. Most people I know prefer RTS to TBS so my TBS tends to be a solo activity :( - one reason to try to find out how many people are inmy geographic area...

Assuming we get something together will probably drop a mention in the forum somewhere. No sure I can make Bordeaux, I'm not good on ferries...

Cheers,

Tim.

I'm really not sure why people think Perl "isn't coding". Perl is a pretty cool language :)

Ugh. I really don't like most RTSs. (Though for my ideas for RTSs that'd be actually fun see http://www.wesnoth.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1762).

Li'sar and I do actually play with people online quite often -- Wesnoth is very low on its bandwidth usage -- we generally solicit games on #wesnoth/irc.wesnoth.org if you or anyone is interested in playing with us :)

Well with the age of Seventeen now I'm one of the younger people around, but luckily not the youngest.

I'm amazed that Turin and Neorice are so young.
I feel immature now. =(

What's so lucky about that?
It's all fun and games until someone loses a lawsuit. Oh, and by the way, sending me private messages won't work. :/ If you must contact me, there's an e-mail address listed on the website in my profile.

Speaking of IRC - any chance we could get that IRC-through-Java link added to the menu bar up top?

When I first saw this thread, I thought "What's 'Age of Wesnoth'?"

24 years old. And I suffer from a lack of strategic oversight and a strong desire not to lose.. Addicted to saved games and elven units. :P

Well, seeing as I'm only 13, I guess I'm classified as one of the youngest users. I've played RPGs for since I was like 8 though. Stuff like Avernum and Nethergate. I've always loved those games! Wesnoth is definitely up there in my list of "Awesome RPG Games". :D
Always remember you are unique, just like everyone else! :)
