Gaming Experience: Been gaming 3.5 for maybe 2 years now.  I'm a COholic, so...
Average level interested in playing: Any.
Favorite System(s): 3.5 is much prefered to 4.0 (just don't like it).  I'm open to non-D&D systems.
Favorite Setting(s): DM generally matters way more than setting.
Style of play: I can min/max with the best of them.  Posts longer than a page in word or shorter than a paragraph tend to irk me.
Favorite Game Type: I'm pretty open.
Favorite Class Type: I play just about everything.
Favorite Class: See above.
Favorite Prestige Class: See above.
Average Posting Rate: If I'm not sleeping or partying I can be expected to post at least once every three hours.
Currently DMing: None at the moment.  I'll get a game running soon though.
Ubernoob is a happy panda.

Gaming Experience: I've played DND for about 2 years now
Average level interested in playing: lower/mid-range levels. I'm not great at making characters, and playing higher level characters is something I have no experience doing... I'd rather gradually get there (or have someone walk me through it step by step...) 
Favorite System(s): 3.5
Favorite Setting(s): Homebrews... Or anything. I'm not picky. 
Style of play: I love roleplaying. Fighting can be fun too, but I especially love roleplaying
Favorite Game Type: World exploration, interaction between different races, graphic details, etc.
Favorite Class Type: Divine casters
Favorite Class: Druid. That's pretty much the only thing I'm ABLE to play. Even when I don't play a druid, I find myself wishing I could be one. I've given up trying to be diverse. I play low level druids. I rock at them. :P
Favorite Prestige Class: I've never even looked at those. Those are something that SURVIVORS get. 
Average Posting Rate: Right now BG says I'm around 2.8 a day.
Currently playing: I'm currently playing in a campaign that aftercrescent is DMing IRL, but once a week (sometimes even less than that) sessions are just not cutting it for me. Plus, I like trying new things. I've never done this sort of thing before.

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Gaming Experience: Sporadic, I played for a little bit with my older brother when I was about 8 years old, back in the day of AD&D.  I played a little bit of 2nd Edition when I was about 14 and got into 3rd edition near the beginning.  Been playing steadily more often since then.
Favorite System(s): D&D 3.5e or 4th E, really interested in playing some 4th E.
Average level interested in playing: Pre-Epic for either system.
Favorite Setting(s): Forgotten Realms or Homebrew.
Style of play: D&D
Favorite Game Type: D&D
Favorite Class Type: D&D
Favorite Class: Probably have to say Ranger, but only because D&D doesn't make sense.
Favorite Prestige Class: Stuff I can use.
Average Posting Rate: I can post too often to be considered healthy, but typically I only post when I want my character to do something or the DM needs a combat action.
Currently Playing: One 4e VTT game.

Gaming Experience: 6 years
Favorite System(s): 3.5e and 4e D&D
Preferred Levels of Play: Any in 4e, 9+ preferrable in 3.5e, 15+ is even better provided it's not loaded down with AC 60+ cheesy-assed characters.
Favorite Setting(s): Forgotten Realms (3.5e only, hate the 4e crap), Eberron
Style of play: 60% roleplay, 40% rollplay. I like big numbers, but I like cool characters more.
Favorite Game Type: Forgotten Realms High Fantasy, Eberron Noir/Dark Fantasy. When I play FR I like the standard nostalgia-inducing good vs. evil, medieval style stuff. Eberron I prefer a darker story with characters  that either triumph over evil or succumb to it themselves. I like interparty interaction, games that are 70% story, 30% combat, 10% big baddies monologuing before the final showdown.
Favorite Class Type: Tracker, Mage, Tank, Devout, Face in that order in most cases.
Favorite Class: Ranger, Druid, Beguiler, Warlock.
Favorite Prestige Class: Telflammar Shadowlord, anything dragon-based.
Average Posting Rate: once per day at least, not always able on mondays or sundays.
Currently DMing: 2 on plothook, 1 on gleemax.
Currently Playing: 1 on gleemax, 1 on plothook

Gaming Experience: 1 year (tried to get a group together back in 8th grade six years ago, but setup took too long). I've been playing, solely through play-by-post for the past year.
Average level interested in playing: I like games that begin at least somewhat low (5th level and lower usually).
Favorite System(s): D&D 3.5, Paranoia
Favorite Setting(s): Homebrew (gritty, realistic settings), Eberron
Style of play: Combat/RP 30%, 70% (This is part of why I'm attracted to the lower levels.)
Favorite Game Type: <Not Sure>; would love to see someone DM the following: Chrono Trigger (3.5), a romantic fantasy (3.5) wherein the characters would have to travel across the universe (across the stars), any game of Paranoia, benevolent Computer!
Favorite Class Type: Melee and Skill primarily, but widely varied in exact methods
Favorite Class: Either Factotums or Barbarians probably
Favorite Prestige Class: Iaijutsu Master
Average Posting Rate: Widely varied; increases to fit the pace of the game, increasing as others post more frequently; I make sure to view my games 1/day at the least though (with few exceptions, which warrant prior notice).

Gaming Experience:  18 years or so of Playing/DM/Storytelling tabletop/LARP/Some PbP in the days of the BBS's before the interwebs.

Average level interested in playing: Whatever.

Favorite System(s): D&D 2.5 & 3.5, White Wolf 3rd Eddition & Abberant, Cyberpunk.

Favorite Setting(s): Homebrews.

Style of play: Character-centric games. Lots of roleplaying and character development. Amount of action depends on the system. In
                   D&D and Cyberpunk, I like LOTS of action. In White Wolf it depends on the style of game.

Favorite Game Type: Just about anything, as long as the players are not duchebags.

Favorite Class Type: In D&D I like Rangers, Druids... wilderness based characters best. Otherwise I like skilled characters that acomplish
                            great things without the need of magic. I'll play arcane casters when it fits the group, but they are not my fav.
                            I play just about anything, I have roleplaying MPD.

Favorite Class: Depends on the game and the character. In 2.5 I like Rangers. In 3.5 I'm digging Warlocks lately.

Favorite Prestige: See Above. I've liked Eldritch Theurge and Disciple.

Currently DMing: Nothing. :(

Currently Playing: Nothing. :(

Gaming Experience: quite a bit mostly D&D 3.0 and 3.5 but also good deal CoC, and splashes of lots of differet systems

Favorite Setting(s): homebrew postapocalyptic D&D setting I played a while ago.

Favorite Game Type: I'm game for mostly anything
Favorite Class Type: Anything with varied tactics, mostly druids and artificers recently.
Favorite Prestige Class: Shadowcraft mage
Average Posting Rate: I should be able to make atleast 1 a day most days.

Gaming Experience: Began playing about a year ago, started with D&D, (obviously), and recently began reading some other d20 stuff.
Average levels interested in playing: 1 through 20.  I've never had a game that lasted more than a few sessions, so I'm really looking for an epic adventure that I can stick with for a while.
Favorite System(s):3.5 D&D and d20 Modern
Favorite Setting(s):Bring 'em all on.  I'd be willing to try anything.  I really like the flavor of Ghostwalk, but practically no one has even heard of it, let alone run games in it.  Seriously though, pretty much anything.
Style of play:  Most of my playing has been very combat oriented, and I definitely see that as as important, but I would really enjoy playing something with more balance between crunch and fluff.
Favorite Game Type(s): Any, really, but I'd love to play an espionage/infiltration type game, and I have been struck with a desire to play in a completely magicless world.
Favorite Class Type: Striker-type melee characters with a lot of skill points.
Favorite Class(es): Rogues, Rangers, Beguilers, Duskblades
Favorite Prestige Class: Depends on character concept really, most times I build my characters around some concept or Prestige Class, and go from there.
Average Posting Rate: I'm new to these boards, and tend to lurk more than post, but in a PbP game, I would post fairly regularly, and at least once per day, maybe more.
Currently DMing: Nothing.  Actually, I've never DMed before.  But I might be up to some PbP DMing
Currently Playing: Nothing.  Hence the PbP.
