With great interest have I been reading the graduation thread.
It is one of the most interesting threads I have read in a long long time. I think we can pad ourselves on the back.
There is just something really interesting I noticed on the sleuth message boards, after being here for two years. Something that is quite different from other message boards and communities I have been in. Though we have brushed on topics what our favorite movies are, whether we think it is soda or pop, the books we read, and mystery games. We also know where we come from. On ocassion we discuss current events.
But no one ever posts about their actual life? Not only who we are, what we do, our family etc. But what happened in our lives, our day to day. Or anything behind being pretend detectives. I am one of the few people that for some reason (unknown to me except that jojo started) most people call Nikkie even on the message board, referring to my real name. As far as I know my bio, actual refers to me as a person outside of sleuth.
I personally would like to see more of that in here. But I am right assuming others don't? For as long as these message board exists we are still on the topic of new game ideas, newbie questions, and pub quizzes. I am assuming this is for a reason. Obviously no one has to share, but at the way our boards are now......I'd feel weird for it even being an option if I created a thread about something that happened to me today.
Personally what I like most about sleuthchat. Is that you are not talking to a bunch of pretend detectives, but actual people.
A lot of people out there know my RL story. My name is Marc, i'm a medic living / working in Eastern Canada. I do a lot of sleuthing between calls when it's not busy at work. I'm the proud father of two wonderfull kids. I enjoy posting in my bio the incredibly stupid people I deal with on the job...
I've been on this site for a while now (over 800 days old) and still get interested in it...
So basically that's me in a nutshell...Don't forget to check my bio from time to time to step in my world...
