|If you would like to be added to Freeping Gamers, please post or Freepmail to Safrguns with the following:
1. Online games you REGULARLY play (1 Required)

2. Aliases you play under (optional)
3. Instant Messenger services/IDs you use, or your favorite servers (optional)
Where did the Gamer Table go???
Well, it now resides on my homepage. The link to it is in the Freeping Gamers Links table above.
It will take me some time but I plan on adding favorite games back into that table, along with aliases.
I'm thinking about adding a column to the Game Table (above) so that FRID(alias) can be displayed, as well as the ping list.
Unfortunately, this means most of the info for Freeping Gamers will be in two places... (double work for me.)
However, I have no problem with that if the gamer table (listing by FRID) is useful.
Please let me know what your preferences are.
Freeping Gamers Logo
I'm entertaining ideas for a new logo. If you have an idea or base graphic, please share.
If you prefer to keep the one we have, let me know that too.
Game Title Graphics:
Also, I'm working on putting game title graphics in place of text. I scanned the BF2 graphic
right off the box and animated the "2"(see table above). Priority for replacing game name text with graphics will go to
the largest ping lists first. If you can help me by sharing scans or links, It would be greatly appreciated!
Freeping Gamers Visability:
This thread is only posted once a week, and promptly gets buried within minutes by new threads.
Each time I post it, about 2-3 new requests come in almost immediately, and thats about it.
All other new gamers come from referrals or people doing searches.
However, I don't believe increasing the posting frequency is the right answer.
Eventually, I would like to see this become a monthly post once our numbers are high enough.
I think the most effective way we can gain visibility is by replying to posts in other threads
where an obvious gamer exists ("anyone else out there play _______?")
Another way is to start using the thread for what it was intended.
The gamer list for "City Of Heroes" more than doubled in two weeks, once chat traffic for that
game got started. (They got lurkers to come out of hiding just by organizing in the thread.)
If you are hesitant about starting up a conversation because of other game traffic, keep in mind
that we now have 10 other Freeping Gamer threads that are getting ZERO traffic.
While the current thread is open to and should be used for all games, there's certainly
nothing wrong with taking side conversations to a previous week's thread.
However, if you see any traffic on old threads that needs my attention, please ping me, as I only
monitor the current thread for new gamers and updates.
Please welcome our newest gamers!...

Thanks!... and Have a great weekend!
Invite to all those who play Halo 2 on Xbox Live! My gamertag is SlySonikku.
I usually stick with Team Preview and Double Team, but I'll do pretty much anything; the game is THAT good.
I don't play online games; I prefer D&D when I need to get my dork on. But my husband is a regular on Planetside. He's usually playing it while I'm FReeping. His character is Hengwrt and he plays on the Emerald server.
Is he a freeper too? Different FR ID?
I would love to list him if he asks.
Hey Safrguns, maybe the thing to do is to get the admins to add the link to the daily gamer thread to the main page, just like the Hobbit Hole, Freeper Canteen, etc. Then we can all just check in at will.
no he doesn't FReep. He's a conservative but just not that into discussing politics on internet forums.
Thats a great idea... I'm sure if a link to Freeping Gamers were on the main forum page, we would be up to at least 500 in no time. (trying to imagine how that would look in the tables... I'd probably have to do separate tables for each game.) However, I'm not real familiar with Hobbit Hole, Canteen, etc. , and I don't know what justifications were used to qualify them for that status. I'm sure longevity, value-add to FR, popularity, and usage are some factors. I think that we still have some proving to do with this concept before admins will consider it for main page material. I do believe that with a healthy base in Freeping Gamers, it could act as a profitable promotion tool for FR. (I've actually referred people to FR while gaming)
Hey thanks!... glad u like.
You a gamer by chance?
Just picked up World of Warcraft over the weekend, so I guess add me to that part of your list too!
My acct name is 'PowerFights' (silly name, but my son picked it out).
I'm a fool to buy this now, when work is so busy -- I'm a gaming addict, pure and simple.
Done!... considering what I hear from the WoW group, you ain't seen nothin yet... hehe.
Give them a ping and see if they can reduce your learning curve a bit.
Yeah, understandable. I haven't played any since before last Saturday.
We're still praying for all of our neighbors down there.
Next time send me a tell and maybe we can run amuck together.
Also, I picked up some bizarre Crowley's Ring (of accuracy) and can't use it. Anybody with a magical (?) origin can have if they want it.
I saw your screen name on another thread, and thought you might be interested in this. Welcome to FR!
Hi! Really enjoyed BF1942 so I just bought BF2 and it "exposed" my video card as being less than adequate!!!! Drats, I am shopping for a new one...don't know if I can afford an nVidia 6800 based one, maybe a 6600. Anyway, I am currently playing BF2 in low resolution, and play alot of Starcraft online (Brood War Expansion Pack). Username "SparkyRadar" in both. Platform is "PC". Thanks for the thread for gamers!!
