    In-game Name: MCpl Bloggins
    Any group affiliation? (Previous Clan) Not really, but a bunch of years back I played in the Fight For The Future tournament for BF2 PR, which had assigned teams for 'campaigns' and such.
    Any experience with Armed Assault and/or Operation Flashpoint? A tiny bit with ArmA 1, and quite a bit more with OP Flashpoint. Gooood times.
    Are you active in any other games at TG? Yep - BF3 and occasionally Project Reality, though I prefer the depth of this game.
    Any interest in mission editing/scripting? I'd like to say yes but... I'm a complete scatterbrain when it comes to this stuff. I can learn in time, hopefully
    Any real world Military experience? 4 years in the Canadian Forces as an infanteer, clock still ticking.
    A belated welcome Bloggins :)

      I figured I would make a thread introducing myself a bit, considering you fella's will see a LOT of me around in the next few months.

      Basically, I came to TG and bought ArmA in the past week for a real purpose (other than fun, of course). I am 17, and have been planning to join the U.S. Army for my entire life, and seeing as I'm graduating High School soon I will be leaving in about two months. I plan on buzzing right through to Ranger school no problem, I come from a military family and my dad and uncle are both former rangers, and my uncle is still working for SOCOM. (I won't bother to say specifically where) Anyway, The reason I came to TG and ArmA is because I knew what high standards you guys held as far as realism and tactics. I played BF2:PR with TG about a year or two ago and remember some players from there, and knew that once I got into the game I would be in good hands. Sure enough, I was right, but I'll get into that later.

      Basically, I came to you guys to use as a training tool. Some of you may know that Ranger school requires students to take positions in missions that they otherwise wouldn't be taking. I plan on entering ranger school as an E2 at lowest, and I won't even be 19 yet. This doesn't give me a whole lot of direct training or experience under my belt to be ready for this aspect of Ranger school. So basically, I came to you guys as a training tool first. I plan on learning everything I need to know about the experience side aspects of squad, team, and platoon leading. This community and all of those who I will play with will be my help in doing so... even if you don't know it.

      Now, I really want to thank everyone for being so kind and helping me get off to a good start. From the moment I have any questions everyone jumps to their feet to help me out. I'm not too good at admitting my weaknesses, so usually I keep quiet and try to learn from listening around, but there are definitely some things I can't learn that way. The people I have played with so far have really helped me out, and I am incredibly grateful. I'd really like all the help I could get, so any tips or advice that really seem to make a big difference I would love to hear. Don't think I get bored listening to a lecture, either. I will sit here with a pen and I will strive to obtain as much info as I can.

      I plan on taking command roles fairly soon, and to get right into the 'training' that I will need, and I really love how I can always rely on this tight knit community to help me out.I played a few games tonight and every night this week. Every night the game get's better and better, on all aspects. Particularly I had an incredible time tonight, in such a manner that compelled me to come to the forums and tell everyone about it.

      So, I don't want to write a thesis paper here and will stop now, just kinda wanted to introduce myself and give a little background. I hope I can meet some more of you on the community side and I can't wait to play with more of you in the months that come.

      Also; My in game name is 'Butler' for those of you that have played with me this week, or will in the future.

      EDIT: I realize this post may be in the wrong place. I tried to keep it relevant, but if otherwise please feel free to move it, thanks!

        Welcome Toptonic-Butler. You have come to the right place for taking on the learning curve of Arma2 and having fun at the same time. You can touch base with any of the Admins or anyone else in the Arma2 community in the Armed Assult channels of TS. I am usually around in the evening after 8:00pm EST.

                bumpin. Any of the new guys feel free to give the rest of us forum hobbits a 'Hello'! even if you've been around for a little bit.

                A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate freedom?!?

I prefer either assault or sniper setups, but can handle just about any gun in any situation. If you need anything, feel free to ask or PM me! If you guys ever need an extra person for a mission or anything, let me know!
