Okay, Coax-first off I realize that I haven't been contributing to the board for very long, but that was because I never liked the idea of getting involved with others online. I've was playing TM quite a while before I even realized there was a UBB. I can honestly say that TM is the first online community that I have actually wanted to participate in.

Secondly, I know that we haven't played against each other very much, but I can see that I have improved quite a bit from my humble beginnings and hope that you(and others) can too.

Thirdly(don't worry, I'm only goin' to 623), I have nothing against BWL, TC or MG, but I don't feel that I'm "old school" enough to be comfortable joining them. I really like the idea of having more than 3 clans or guilds-hopefully, things will really take off with the release of 1.5 later this month and we'll be inundated with new blood(although there's nothing wrong with the old blood ). In this spirit of expansion, I would like to announce the formation of a new clan(if there are no objections, that is).

Clan GoatHead (^GH^) consists of me....and, ummm, my brother(Mr. Clean) when I make him join-trust me, he'll love it. So there ya go, Coax-join or don't join, make fun of the name, whatever-at least you have another option.

This is long enough, so I'll post more info on GoatHead's origins if I'm asked for it.

You can be in a clan AND in MG, you know. The only requirement is loving mining...

Coax seems to have a bit of a problem with 'diplomacy' anyway...He probably didn't mean anything by what he said, Karldar. Well, maybe he did, who knows

it sounds good KArldar, I don't feel quite oldschool enough to ever join the other clan but I don't want this new clan to suck either, oh-well I'm in. And whenever RC gets his dang vid-card we'll compete and be slaughtered but at least there is now a third option

don't know about the name though, but the idea of a clan is a silly thing anyways so I guess the name just reflects it. But something like JOS JustOneShot would be a little bit more Professional.

RC: so first you needed a new vid card and now technically you still don't have a vid card since it draws to much power, I think your just stalling now

so ... Karldar

What does it take to join GoatHead? I enjoy the soup. (Rolling Stones? but I show my age :-)

Checked your profile and we have things in common. TM, drinking beer (I also brew my own), and I used to enjoy shooting things until the kids came along and I made the firing pins disappear. They're both teens now, so maybe I can put them back ... no nevermind. Let's leave them disappeared. ;-)

I'm motivated, but unreliable and unpredictable. Got room for me in GoatHead?

Sure we've got room in ^GH^ for you, Synack. First, lemme give you(and everyone else) an idea of where it came from. After beginning to play online and hearing about TC and BWL, I thought it would be cool to form another clan for less-experienced players like me. A name eluded me for some time, but I finally decided on GoatHead for the following reasons(in random order): I like the way it sounds; it is typically associated with stubborness/ tenacity; it has kind of a taboo(read pagan/demonic) quality about it; and I thought it was cool that I could put the little ^ on either side to represent horns. I think that, as a clan, ^GH^ should be for players who are stubborn and keep comin' back for more, even if they're losin'. I try to play that way, but I'm definitely no fragmaster. I am sometimes guilty of runnin' around tryin' to get particular weapons or more ammo, but I've learned that I get more enjoyment out of the game if I just try to do my best and have a good time-whether I win or not.

There you have it...well, most of it anyway. Lemme know if you want to know more.
