Thanks for all of the responses guys! This is a quite a lot more than I was expecting as an initial response.
What were you expective with a thread title of "Please Identify yourselves."
Well, I guess that I didn't realise just how many different people we have as TNG regulars!
It is nice to "meet" everyone properly, isn't it?

In answer to Scatta's question, I don't like posting my real name publicly (although anyone who's met me at the UK meet-ups knows it already). However, I will offer a picture by way of compensation...

Some people prefer to keep theirs private, but you can see mine in my profile.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Gold_Griz It's nice to meet you, Tom. I will, however, continue to call you Gold_Griz, 'cause threads would get confusing if no one knew who anyone was talking to.

Naraht I actually knew a "Grand98" from a role-playing group who insisted I called him "Grand" even in real life. I found that odd from someone I liked well enough to choose him to play my character's son, but whatever. To each their own. Just, tell me how to pronounce "Naraht" and that will be more than good enough. Thanks for the pic, BTW, it's more than I ever would have asked as far as knowing who I'm talking to.

There are some people whose username actually fits them better than their real name. I call Huntingdon "Hunt," even in person, and even though I know his real name, because it just sounds more like him.

My username is pronounced, at least by me, "nah-RAHT". So that it rhymes with "rot," in my accent at least.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I too don't like saying my username in this public setting. However, if you are curious, than PM me and I'll tell you.

Griz,

I'm glad you made this thread. It's not so often we acutally get to "meet" people on this board. It's fun to learn so much about others around here.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

I have the same handle on any bss that I frequent. Another forum I post on has had many meetups and I constantly correct people IRL not to call me Mack. My name is Jamie, dammit. Not mack.

On boards, though, either goes.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Wow! I am 36 and I feel old reading this thread!!

I was away at college, my first semester, when I started watching NextGen. I loved it!! :thumbsup: I thought the characters were well written(especially in later seasons)and the whole thing was just cool.

I like all the characters, but my fave is probably Picard. Just something about a bald, confident, intelligent man I suppose(considering that I am married to a bald, confident and intelligent man may have something to do with it ).

Thanks for the thread

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hey, cool, an introductory thread

I'm Johi36 (you can call me Johi ) and I'm 26 years old. When I was a little child, I occasionally watched TOS with my older sister and liked it very much, but I didn't become the crazy Star Trek fanatic that I am today until a friend introduced me to TNG when I was about 17 years old. I immediately developed a huge crush on Picard/Patrick Stewart (which wore off a little since then)

The last time I watched all episodes from start to finish has been when I bought the DVD box sets a few years ago. I really should do this again some time

I truly love the other ST series too, but I think TNG will always stay my favourite one!

Holy crap that makes me feel old, and I'n only 25.
Me too, and I'm already freaked out about turning 26 in January.
Oh, hush, both of you. I'm old enough to have been your baby-sitter.

Scatta, while I understand why you'd like first names, I just can't. I think I can count on one hand all the people on the board who actually know my first name, a few more than that know what city I live in. If it were just me I was looking out for, I'd probably be a bit more open, but I have kids, so I'm more reserved than the average bear about stuff that could potentially identify them. I hope you understand.

Johi, I'm currently working my way through Voyager again right now. TNG is next in the line-up, though. It's nice to have the flexibility owning the DVDs offers.

I still want to get DS9. Stupid money. Stupid fencing sucking up all of our funds.

Of course I do, I built it into the question.

I just don't consider first names a risk, as long as it's a reasonably common first name and no one knows exactly where I am. I do, however, respect that other people do consider it to be one. I, for one, rarely go anywhere alone. I never leave work without an escourt, so I can understand that people have to do what they have to do.

Re: TNG fans please identify yourselves ...

Hey all,

Just here to say that I've been a Star Trek fan since I was a little 8 year old watched TNG with my mom every week 'til it ended. I'm 22 now a Senior at the University of Puerto Rico majoring in Political Science, hopefully going to study law afterwards.

P.S. My name's Carmen, but I really don't mind people calling me Neeka.
