Who are you people ? Really I want to know ...

Howdy and thanks for dropping by my little thread. I ,as of late, have been wondering just who is playing Glitch these days (yeah I do weird things like that :). The old primary demographic of stay at home moms and retired persons seems to be shifting. I meet people of all ages and walks of life in Glitch, it's got that universal appeal thing going for it. Don't get me wrong I love stay at home moms and retired folk I just wanna know who the heck is here so I would really appreciate it if you could tell me a little about yourself. No need to write your life story or anything, not that that wouldn't be interesting, but just a few things like your sex, general age, social status, and what you do to fill your days when you aren't playing Glitch. Hey who knows you might even be weird like me and find this interesting :) In the very least you get entered in a random drawing to win 10 cubimal boxes just for taking the time to help me out. 

 I'll get the ball rolling.

Female , Age 40's , Not married, Self employed computer geek, nutritionist and keeper of other peoples stuff (aka caretaker)

  • Howdy! Female, 20 years old, from GA (metro Atlanta area), single with no urge to become otherwise, full-time student, will hopefully be going into graphic design. Whovian, Sherlockian, Steam Powered Automaton, etc. Totally addicted to the internet, and more specifically, Tumblr. I've only been playing Glitch for a little while, and it's starting to be a big distraction and time-waster... whoops, don't care. :P

  • Herro! Female, 22, politics major studying in the USA. When not in the US I'm in Singapore. Only recently started playing Glitch. I'm also trilingual. :> My pocket money comes from being a student photographer on campus, apart from that I cook a lot, bake a lot, and have a small social life because I really like playing games. :D

  • Hi! I'm a guurl, 24 years young, from the US, close to Omaha! w00t! I am just starting out my education but my ultimate goal is to be a teacher librarian. I currently attend community college and live with my dad, and fiance (and kitties and bunny).

  • I've also been really curious about the demographic! Female,18 and from North Carolina but I would prefer to live further up north where the politics are a little less rightwing. I really like drawing/painting and cats and video games and rowing (I was on a crew team in high school) and science.

  • Male, 26, also North Carolina, in a relationship but not married. During the day I'm an engineer for a pharma company, at night I'm working on one of many projects/hobbies of varying degrees of geekyness or on Glitch to unwind. Been here a little over a year. All these posts are a really neat insight into this awesomely fun waste of time !

  • Wow, it's so nice to see so many friendly people in one spot!  That's why I love the Glitch community!

    My name is Cindy and I live in Vancouver, BC.  I work in the game industry and have 2 kitties!  I have been playing Glitch for almost a month now and I love it.  My passions are video games and eating yummy foods. 

    I love meeting new people, so please feel free to add me!  If you want to talk about food or video games, my doors are open!

  • Hi. Interesting reading :)

    Female, young 50's, disabled (which has interfered with a lot of the things I like to do!) stay-at-homer, been in Ur for 12 days and have totally fallen in love with it and all the Glitches (aka people) I've met. Previously played many pc adventure-type games and Glitch is my first MMOG. High school grad and some college. Divorced, with 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Other passions are quilting, polymer clay and jewelry-making. I love reading, science fiction and American Girl dolls. My favorite TV stations are Syfy and Chiller. I prefer movies over serial TV except for The Walking Dead, Charmed and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Feel free to message me if you want any further info and have a wonderful day (or evening).

  • I guess I'll throw in here now. I'm a 33 year old male with a 9 year old son, I work in a douchie office of some sort, love to read everything from Russian lit to philosophy to epic fantasy. I live in KY and play banjo but oddly enough am not married to anyone I'm related to. My goatee now comes down to between the 2nd and 3rd button on most of my shirts (and the mandatory shaved head of course). I like death metal and bluegrass and various other crap. I generally despise television and most everything else. Glitch is my only real hobby these days. I like to doodle, am generally full of shit and spend most days trying to find new ways to be an asshat. I also enjoy long walks through parking lots to the backseats of cars and strolls on the beach (well, under water scuba cam creeping, but close). I'm Fyo D, and I disapprove all messages.

I'm apparently the oddball of all accounting students because I'm an otaku (a fan/person who enjoys watching anime and reading manga) and a gamer (so alone :( *sniff*). Hobbies include knitting, cosplaying, origami, and some computer illustration though I haven't been doing that much as of late. Basically rocking out the single life. :D

    Also trying (and failing horrifically) to get fit. :)

    edit: you gotta start doing the computer illustration again >:( because it is cute.

    double edit: Female, teens (>/= 14), and I spend my time reading webcomics and writing and doodling and heating up things in the microwave that are not supposed to be heated in the microwave...like raw eggs...i tried to boil eggs once in the microwave.

  • I've really enjoyed reading all these!  Yes, who am I??  I am a Jennifer but usually referred to as Minkey in RL.  42 years old and still in school--I'm not sure I'll ever be able to stop, I love it too much.

    I cannot stand TV but I love books in all their forms.  Touching paper with print makes my fingers tingle and smelling used books makes me smile.  I also enjoy things posted on my Glitch profile page.

    I miss the rockies but am very happy now that we are back on the west coast.  I hike as if I have a disorder called Incessant Hiking and Walking Disease except I like it so much it cannot be a sickness.

    Cookies and tarts are fun to bake.  I only eat sugars including grains and fruits once per week.  I do not eat the animals.

    There is nothing I cannot do.

    I enjoy my Glitch friends and acquaintances even if we disagree.  Maybe especially if we write different things on the forums.  I value play with all of you, even if I don't know you.

    We have two dogs.  They are, most-likely, better than anyone else's dogs.  They also enjoy my baking.

    I am a nerd but I like to think of myself as adorable.  No, I'm not ashamed to like me.  And, I do like me.  I think I am awesome and I'm fairly sure you all are awesome as well.  I'll bet you are all adorable too.  Yes, I'm sure.

    I am a girl.  I am a woman.  I love to wear levi's and t-shirts.

This is my first computer game even though I've been into computers since 1977 -- my first box was an Apple // serial number 245 IIRC. Live in plush but not overly ostentatious digs in Portland Oregon USA. Way big into books and such.

  • Female, 29. I'm a closing shift manager at Starbucks. I don't have a driver's licence, so I pretty much just work and go home. I've got 4 dogs (a pit, a boxer, a puggle, and a chihuahua) and a tuxedo kitty. I'm unmarried with no children, but I've got a man who's put up with me and my late night gaming for 2 years. I'm loving this game, and I wonder why I haven't found it sooner.

  • Oooh, I love statistics! :~D

    Female, 28, Norwegian. I'm doing a PhD in popular literature, which is fun (but exhausting and stressful). I'm a major geek, into stuff like Doctor Who, anime and manga (such as the various Gundam series, Witch Hunter Robin, and Princess Tutu), fan fiction, the SCA, fantasy and sci-fi in general, and gaming. I also play the french horn and love crafts like knitting and embroidery. I've played Glitch on and off (mostly off lately, unfortunately, since I'm so busy) since August. I have an awesome geeky boyfriend and live with a just as awesome housemate/best friend, but I have no animals as I'm allergic. :~/

    I ache over the fact that I will miss a lot of you, even though I was not on in the past couple of weeks taking a small break, now this break has turned into a slow burning fade of logging in to make sure everything is ok before that one final login.. Gah I just can't stop talking about it!

  • Male, 40, single, no kids, software/database consultant, Los Angeles area.  Into road biking, hiking, reading, learning foreign languages, sporadically practicing classical guitar.  And the internets and games of course.  Played MUDs etc. back in the 90s, then later RuneScape, WoW, a little bit of Spiral Knights, now Glitch.

    Sad to see Glitch go, it's been a fun place to play in, and there's obviously a lot of creative and talented people behind it dedicated to coming up with something new.  So much potential in what they've done so far, I would have liked see the vision fully realized.  Great player base, too, like Hirune said, friendly, focused on cooperation and having fun.  It's a shame.  Anyway, I had fun reading all of the little bios in this thread, so I thought I'd chip in.

  • All right, I'll add. Gender-confused chick, early twenties, eminently and forever single. I heard this recommended as a communal, cutesy, gender-neutral game. I was wary about the cutesy, but soon fell in love because the game basically lets you play around with worlds and character designs that are like the definition of creepy-horror-cute. I'm really happy to have spent time here.

  • Female, 58, western U.S., very happily second-time married, lots of yours-mine-and-ours, mostly-grown children, and lots of grandchildren.  My hair is still not gray, and I wear it very long (but not yet a *cat lady,* by any means, though we do have a flame point, part-Siamese, and a huge, wonderful German Shepherd Dog, to boot - both rescues). 
    I'm totally, extremely disabled and am not well many days, but playing games is a tremendous help when I can, and groups like this are such good company!
     I am a natural nurturer, and a bubbly person.  I love learning, literature, and being out nearer Mother Nature, or inside, with a book in my lap and a cup of cocoa in my hand. 
    I was a Fauna Sphere refugee, and I still strongly miss many aspects of it.  Sad to see the loss of Glitch, especially for the new players.  Not sure I'll try any mmo games again.  Not until I feel fairly sure that they aren't going to go away!  But I might follow the group if they head somewhere together, so keep us posted, everyone!

    Edited to add:  I also love doing mixed-media art projects, watching movies, and dreaming...zzz

  • Since Glitch is ending, I'm trying not to lurk as much, so here it goes!

    20, genderqueer/third-gender, single, living in Northern Virginia. I love Glitch to death and will be at quite a loss when it goes. I draw things and write stories and create characters and would love to do that for a living. I'm going to start art classes very soon and am really excited about that. One thing that really attracted me to Glitch is the beautiful, unparalleled art and creative, unique worlds to explore. I'd love to be able to create a world like this one day.

    Um, other things about me that aren't about Glitch...I'm a hopeless music addict! I had homemade donuts today for the first time. I own a lot of poodles - six! I really like the music of Andrew Huang and would recommend him to people who enjoy this game. He's very eclectic and talented and interactive with his listeners. And er, I love the internet. I wish I could live here. Real life is way too hard most of the time. I have social anxiety/general anxiety. It made me terrified to talk to anyone on here for a long time; I only started interacting with the world more recently but I'm afraid it's too late to actually make any friends. :(

    I like words a loooot. I'm a...linguaphile? I just think language and words and grammar are cool things. I speak German (which is also the origin of my username) but I'm sort of rusty because I haven't had a use for it for a couple years. 

    I guess this is long enough now... :)

  • Well, this is a sad occasion, but an occasion nonetheless, so I'll go for it.

    Early 20s, genderless internet beastie, just graduated with a degree in art but still just sitting around at home waiting for someone to employ me. I like comics, robots, baking bread, knitting, bees, drawing, and tea. I speak French well enough to get by, and play the flute and ukulele (neither particularly well). My height and armspan are both just a fraction of an inch under five feet.

    Once, in a digital media class, I made a very rudimentary website called "Look," just a series of drawings with a complicated web of embedded links that let you click on things to look closer or move around an imagined landscape. It was limited by time and my own capabilities, but I imagined it just going on and on, a whole world with no point but to wander around and check it out. Glitch was the closest I've ever found to what I wished I could have made then.

  • I'm 30, female, no kids, but we have 3 ferrets... which is pretty close to having kids with how they act lol. 

    I only started playing Glitch the very beginning of August, but it hit me just how quickly I fell for this game when the closing was announced and reading through all the posts about how sad everyone is. I'm not usually big into joining communities in games, but this one really drew me in in a way that no game ever has.

    Outside of Glitch I guess I would classify myself as a seamstress? I do a lot of crafts and I (try to) make a living off of them. I'm hitting the point that I can almost say "you name it I can do it." I sew (clothing, stuffed animals, anything in between), I crochet, needle felt, embroider, sculpt, paint... it's all good and fun. Knitting, and quilling are on my next-to-learn list.

    I joined Glitch because it was recommended on a message board I frequent. I realized it was exactly the kind of game I had been searching for. Even though I haven't been playing for more than a month, I'm truly heartbroken that this beautiful world will no longer exist :(
