Gaming Experience: Started with basic D&D box sets and played from 2nd edition to 3.5 so been playing D&D for over 20 years. Other games included World of Darkness both old and new, Deadlands, HERO system, d6 and d20 star wars, fading sun, burning wheel
Favorite System(s): don't have one really they all have their goods and bads but my group mainly plays 3.5 D&D and New World of Darkness.
Favorite Setting(s): Forgotten Realms
Style of play: I go about 50/50 with RP and Hack and Slash. I like to spend a lot of time on my characters both in back story and build.
Favorite Game Type: I don't have one I'm pretty adaptable in terms of play. And I'll make my characters based on the type of game the DM wants to run.
Favorite Class Type: Skill Monkeys or quick agile figthers (Rogues, Rangers, Swashbucklers and Fighters)
Favorite Class: Rogue
Favorite Prestige Class: Whisperknife
Average Posting Rate: Depends if it's slow at work all the time but if's it's busy every 30 to 45 minutes. I have a 2hr trip home after 5pm est and then my posting time at home depends on how much time the little woman wants me to spend with her.

Gaming Experience: Mostly 3.5, I've dabbled in WoD (Scion, Vampire, OWoD, NWoD) primarily as a Kitsune (love the fluff behind them), and in WFRP. After a year of playing under a really bad DM, I started up my own campaign, and have done several online. While I am forgetful, I am very experienced due in part to my time on the CO Boards.

Favorite System(s): Warhammer Quest. Nothing beats total chaos. Ever.

Favorite Setting(s): While I am partial to my Skies of Arcadia setting, my favorite is Eberron/Steam Punk.

Style of play: High fantasy, medium tech, ass loads of show-boating from powerful characters. I like strong character builds in my campaign, I view optimized characters as a challenge to overcome (without being a PC-killer DM).

Favorite Game Type: Slaughter-houses with a lot of show-boating. While I don't mind PvP, I prefer working with my party to kick ass.

Favorite Class Type: Casters, high-magic classes.

Favorite Class: Wizard (with the Totemist being a close-second).

Favorite Prestige Class: Jade Phoenix Mage

Average Posting Rate: When I can post, very high. I am extremely active when I have internet access.

Currently DMing: None yet, but working on a home-brew campaign setting.

Favorite System(s): I'm really itching to play some 4e.
Favorite Setting(s): Mostly play with Homebrew settings but I'm also running a few FR games.
Style of play: I can go either way really. But a good mix of combat and RP is always nice.
Favorite Game Type: Epic stuff, like stopping a god from recreating the multiverse to his own liking or the like.
Favorite Class Type: In 3.5e my favorite classes have been Warblades, and Crusaders; for 4e, it's looking like Warlords, Rogues, and Rangers. Definitely an up in front in the thick of things guy.
Favorite Class: Warblade (3.5), Warlord (4e)
Favorite Prestige Class: Swiftblade

Currently DMing: 2 Parties for a FR game over at DnDOG and I'm running a homebrew gestalt game with my biweekly tabletop group.

Gaming Experience: Started playing 3.5 a few years ago, but I literally read the core books for 2 years.  My group didn't have access to any of the splat books, so I feel kinda overwhelmed now  :D
Average level interested in playing:   I like to start from the ground up, but I've never gone epic.
Favorite System(s): D&D 3.5?  Played Vampire : The Masquerade and Palladium, but 3.5 is where its at for me.
Favorite Setting(s): Mostly played in homebrew worlds, but I like Eberron and Forgotten Realms.
Style of play:   Read the sig :)  I'm all about kicking ass in combat, but I can roleplay the hell out my character if I get into him/her.
Favorite Game Type: You know, typical fantasy stuff, group of misfit villagers goes off to save the world type of thing.
Favorite Class Type: Casters or skill monkeys, I like to have lots of options.
Favorite Class: Wizard or Rogue
Favorite Prestige Class: Arcane Trickster (I came from Core only!!)
Average Posting Rate: Alot when I'm at work, less when I'm at home.
Currently DMing: None, haven't tried my hand at DMing, really.

Gaming Experience: Been playing 3.5 for maybe five years now, but only recently have I opened myself to splatbooks.
Average level interested in playing: I enjoy low and mid level games, because those are the only ones I've ever played. Most fiddle out around 12th.
Favorite System(s): D&D 3.5, though that's pretty much the only one I've played enough to judge.
Favorite Setting(s): Always have played homebrewed stuff, though things from Eberron and FR have been pulled out.
Favorite Game Type: I'm interested in anything that lets me develop my character personality-wise and optimization-wise.
Favorite Class Type: I often fill the skillmonkey slot, but I play a caster when I can.
Favorite Class: Beguiler
Favorite Prestige Class: That's too tough a choice for me to decide upon.
Average Posting Rate: It's usually higher when I should be doing other tasks such as homework.
Currently DMing: The Eyes of the Lich Queen Eberron game, fun stuff.

Gaming Experience: About a year.  I'm a newbie to playing, though I have my nose in the books ALL THE TIME.
Average level interested in playing: The whole enchilada.  I want the growth in power, from untested whelp to supreme overlord.
Favorite System: D&D 3.5
Favorite Setting: Greyhawk?  Classic fantasy.  I dislike the glut of powerful NPCs in FR.  Players should be the big dogs, with a few suitably challenging foes to keep things interesting.
Style of Play: Optimizer, because I feel characters should be awesome.  I'm a fan of well-developed personalities and fun fun party dynamics.  I can succumb to being loot-happy at times.
Favorite Game Type: Novelistic?  Character development, a brisk plot, all served up with piping hot, steel-ringing combat.  Add snarky humor, to taste.
Favorite Class Type: Caster-heavy gish.  Wizards with pointy sticks.  I'll take a little less power (as little as I can get away with giving up) in order to be able to smack someone in the face.  With a spear.
Favorite Class: Wizard.  Because finding new uses for spells is just flat out awesome.
Favorite PRC: Abjurant Champion.  Whoever wrote it was an utter gish whore, and whoever let it through was another one.
Average Posting Rate: Either blatantly uninterested, or obsessive compulsively mashing F5
Currently DMing: Nothing.  Trying to get into a game, though.

Gaming Experience: About 15 years or so. Started on AD&D 2nd Ed, with a little 1st ed mixed in for flavor. Played that 'til we heard that 3rd was coming out, then started home-brewing our own. Tried 3rd, group later parted ways. LARP Vampire, GURPS, Starwars (WEG d6, I like the system), Tales From the Floating Vagabond (Avalon Hill comedy game). Little bit of play by ICQ/messenger. Lotsa 3.5; steady weekly/bi-weekly group for...four or maybe even five years now. Since we're terribly uninterested in 4e ('tastes funny!'), we're homebrewing D&D pi (No, not you P_I). Coming along nicely. Stealing all sorts of ideas from as many sources as we can get our grubby l'il hands on.
Average level interested in playing: Sweet spot for me is 3-17, so 10th is avage.
Favorite System(s): Homebrew 3.5 (In process of making it now)
Favorite Setting(s): ...Um...uh...Planescape?
Favorite Game Type: Action/Adventure, with a generous sprinkling of comedy and mystery/intrigue
Favorite Class Type: Oof...I like to bat cleanup, usually; I'll play whatever would be useful, usually.
Favorite Class: Fond of warlock, like very much at will abilities, want moar variety.
Favorite Prestige Class: Shadowcraft Mage ('I can do anything at all...')
Average Posting Rate: 1-3 per day, here (Cuz I like the community and the focus)
Currently DMing: Hack'n'Slash mostly random/madeup tabletop
Currently Playing: Tabletop: Nada

Experience: Not that much. I've been into RPGs for about four years now, but I don't get a huge amount of play. Had pretty regular games for about 18 months. Mainly D&D 3.5 and NWoD. Planning o pick up 4E.

Average Level: Wherever. I hear D&D breaks down at high levels, but I'm interested in watching it as much as I want to avoid it.
Favourite System: Probably 3.5
Favourite Setting: Homebrew high fantasy, written by a medieval history student. Plenty of detail. Published: Eberron.
Game Type: Dungeon-delving is a lot of fun, but I'm not averse to political/RP-heavy play. I quite enjoy Mage: The Awakening.
Class Type: I like to pull things out of nowhere. Spontaneous casters and sneaks are my preference, but surprising the GM with a concept is just as good.
Favourite Class: Swordsage is extremely cool.
Favourite Prestige Class: Not really sure. None of my D&D games have called for them. Ruby Knight Vindicator looks pretty cool, though.
Average Post Rate: I haven't PbPed much, but I come here often. Note that I will often be hard to reach on weekends, and I live in Australia (GMT +10, PST +17), so I may post at odd times.
Currently DMing: Nil.
Currently Playing: Tabletop: Human Crusader 6; Acanthus w/ Prime 5, Fate 4, Time 3 (high-powered crossover game, Prime from homebrew legacy).
I know gameology-fu.

    Gaming Experience: Sadly, not a lot, every time I get into a game, it seems to die. I haven't played PbP at all, but it seems fun, and the practical experience I lack is sorta made up for with time spent on message boards.
    Average level interested in playing: Any at all.
    Favorite Setting: I haven't been able to play much, but Eberron seems very interesting.
    Style of play: I have only been able to play hack-and-slash, because that's all my DM's would run. I am interested in playing RP though.
    Game type preferred: Any.
    Favorite class type: I haven't had much of a chance to play, but I am willing to play anything except a healbot.
    Favorite class: Any.
    Favorite prestige class: Any that will help my character concept.
    Average posting rate: I am at home a lot of the time, and when I am I can post a lot. So consider me here, unless I say otherwise.
    Currently DMing: None, but planning on DMing an Eberron campaign IRL ASAP.
    Currently playing: None.

    Gaming Experience: 2.5-3 years PbP
    Average level interested in playing: Not picky, never played above 6, though.
    Favorite System: 3.5, D20 Modern
    Favorite Setting: None, played a couple greyhawk, but both died before I saw much of the setting.
    Style of play: Straight-forward, mainly, I try to think outside of the box sometimes, though.
    Game type preferred: Combat-focused, neither my characters nor I tend to think much of diplomacy.
    Favorite class type: Melee or archer, really bad at being healer, never been in a high enough level campaign to try a mage (fear my colour spray!), but I enjoyed the added versatility granted by my Psychic warrior when I played him.
    Favorite class: Probably Psychic Warrior, haven't played enough to know for sure.
    Favorite prestige class: Haven't played... any. In theory, Blade dancer (OA), elocator or pyromancer.
    Average posting rate: Should be capable of several times a day, unsure what might happen to that once I find a job.
    Currently DMing: None, no interest in DMing currently.
    Currently playing: None.
