Smile Newbies....Introduce yourselves to the ME crowd

Just thought it would be nice for newbies to go introduce yourselves to folks here before diving in and asking questions, especially if you've not taken the time to check out the wiki or had a quick search for those common questions, spending a bit of time doing that goes a long way into getting help from folks without the shirty comments, it's the least you can do if you expect people to answer everything for you

So where are you from?
Got any kids?
Hobbies?
Whatever else

Oh and don't forget, different time zones and the weekend isn't Sat/Sun, so don't get shirty if you don't get a reply straight away

Forigive my ignorance (as I've never been to your quiz night - I believe it takes place in an Australian bar.........), but why do you need "organising skills"?

Surely you don't actually organise the quiz itself? You just turn up and take part - right?

If I'm missing the point, just give me a slap and I'll get me coat......

Yours truly,

Puzzled Of Riyadh.
