    Hey there, my name's Alex. I found this site some years ago, back before it was using this domain name. I decided to sign up finally, since I found out a few months ago about Gran Turismo 5. Currently, I'm figuring out ways to convince my wife, that a 400 dollar gaming console and Gran Turismo is a necessity for me. :p

    One of my many hobbies are administrating forums. I just recently bought a IP.Board license, I used to use vBulletin. I held the vB license for a few years before I got rid of it a year ago. I got tired of the whole 'old look' of it. I jumped into the whole IPB scene thanks to a few friends who use the software. Anyway, I've got background in web design and graphics. I like shooting, soccer, fishing, and watching F1. I really like music and movies, so basically all the good stuff. :lol:

    Sting, Pink Floyd, REM, Gypsy Kings, Eric Clapton, Maroon 5, Phil Collins, Santana, UB40, U2, and don't call me old for this but I also enjoy The Beatles. :D

    Anyway, enough about me. This thread is starting to turn mushy and I don't want to make this place sound like a dating site for Gran Turismo fans. :lol:

    Hey welcome to GTP.

    So do you run a forum else where. I'm always looking for a new place to hangout. Send me a PM if you do so you won't get into trouble for advertising. Either that or put a link in your sig.:tup:

    Howdy, I'll let someone else do the "watch out for him, and him...and him" bit, but look out for Famine. Duck/EWillis and I are the resident poultry/snitches, and kikie is the resident Emo...

    Enjoy.

    I know the rules fairly well. As to the site, not yet. It's being worked on in the wee hours of the night.


    :lol: Thanks for the comedic welcome mate.

    Uh huh. No worries indeed. At a word, this thread could be filled with every .gif known to man.

    But I'll refrain from unleashing EWillis/Duck upon you, this evening.

    But, good job on actually introducing yourself, instead of just saying "Hi GTP, I am here now. Yay me!!"

    In other news, you will find alot of the regulars here don't actually do anything regarding Grand Turismo anymore, we are just kind of here to cause problems and harass new guys. See example in the S2000 Initial D challenge thread.

    Welcome, and enjoy. Do not anger those that have been previously mentioned, or great calamity will befall you. I jest not, for I have witnessed this calamity befall others.

    WELCOME!!!!

    I hope you enjoy your time here at GTPlanet.net! Make sure you read the rules, read them again, write them down, recite them out loud, and repeat.


    If you have any questions just throw a PM at me and I'll catch it.

    1. That dude was not an alter-ego of Sakiale, or at least not the most recent one. His thread read: Newb here, but GT Vet.

    2. I agree.

    3. EWillis is sick, kikie is an emo, and Famine is a person to watch for? How the times change!

    Welcome, SwitchFX, to GT Planet.
