Where is everyone located and what time does everyone play? I haven't seen many members of the 58th and I'm not sure why.

Myself, I'm located on the East Coast of the U.S. So that'd put me on EST.

P.S. sorry for all my posts, but you'll soon learn that I'm a pretty bad troll.

Don't worry about the posts. The more activity that happens around our forum at the moment, the more reason there is for our pilots to regularly check said forum for information. It's been a bit of a problem with them recently, hence the mayhem.

Circumstances depending, I'm either in England (GMT) or Geneva (GMT+1). As for the times that I play...well, I don't. Once gaming starts and we decide on a standard voice comm system you might find me sitting in and listening as you guys do runs though.

Signature test.

Hmmm, it's not appearing. I uploaded it from my computer and when I go to my profile it shows it as my current signature picture. So what am I doing wrong?

GMT is the standard time in England and countries along that line... it is 5 hours ahead of EST. (Trust me, I'm in the same boat)

Well, Eastern Time here, too. We'll work it out though.

P.S. My sig is too small. How do I make it bigger?

I'm US EST, but i'm online super late.  I usually end up playing with Aussies or Brits!  If you're on around 12-3am EST you'll fine me.

US Central Time, which is GMT minus six hours.  

Game evenings and weekends.  I have not found a multiplayer session to participate in yet, but I'm frequently online late into the night, 01:00 or 02:00 local.

I don't play because at the moment I don't have the ability to. Firewalls that I don't have access to prevent me from opening ports up to play online games. That'll change by the summer though, so I might pop in for a flight or two.

The other reason for not playing is that the 58th needs someone that isn't assigned to a squadron to give a somewhat un-bias view on things.

If I'm right, you'll be an Ensign.

In the User CP/Edit Sig>>>You need to just highlight the parts that you'd like to see bigger (and/or bolded) and then click the Sizes drop-down menu and change the size. (Tip: start with "3" and preview that...then go up as needed).

Hey Chief, I haven't even been here long, and already I appreciate what you do. Thanks. (So say we all?)

edited to add: oh and i hang out regularly in the #btrl channel. don't know exactly why, probably because it's supposed to be cool to hang out with the dev guys :p

It is cool. Plus you often get the first notice of stuff that's going on. :)
