I figured I'd make this thread for those of you who feel so inclined to introduce yourselves as who you are in real life. I know we all play Minecraft together, but sometimes it's good to just put a face to it. What's your real name, what do you do for a living, what do you look like, etc..

Reveal only as much as you feel comfortable with.

I'll start off with myself.

I'm a dad of 3, living in Colorado. I do internet marketing and ecommerce for a living.

My wedding with Mrs. Meat:

Nice pictures ;)

I dont know how to really put it all out there so let me me just give you the basic intro of myself:

I'm in High school or "Secondary" schoool on the west coast of Scotland,apart from normal school I take photography,writing and extra history classes. I would like to try and do my best to get ready for Uni in the next 4-5 years or suffer in collage

A picture of me from about 2 month ago at my cousins wedding(which I think is my best picture):

And this is the most up to date picture of me which I took 2 weeks ago(I had a cold)*below*:

Alright, Alright, I Guess I'll Go Next...

All Give Some Things Away About Me If My Username Doesn't Already, So, Yeah, I Am An Actor... Been One Since I Was Around The Age Of Six. I Joined Band In My Eighth Grade Year And I Was Hooked On It As A Percussionists (For People Who Don't Know, That's The People In Who Play Drums And Other Multiple Things That Can Get Hit), I Also Have Already Entered My Second Year Of Marching Band With A Band That's Considered One Of The Best Around Despite Our School's Young Age Of Six (By Best Around I Mean The Whole Of The East Coast, Third In Our Class During Last Year's Finals For All Of The East Coast {USSBA} <--- That's The Name Of The Competition, You Can Look It Up). I Also Am A Bit Of A Geek, That Was Sadly Proved During My Last Band Practice When I Got Angry About Someone Not Knowing What Star Wars Was...

So Anyhow, I Am 14, Have Two (Extremely Annoying) Sisters, Plan To Go To The University Of North Carolina Chapel Hill (I Know That's A Long Name) For College In A Few Years (Very Hard School To Get Into), I Wish To Either Become A Full Time Actor Or Teacher (CoughCoughActorCoughCough), I Am Also Mostly Italian With Some German And Northern Irish Mixed In, So An Extremely Big Extended Family.

I Couldn't Find A Better Picture Of Me, So I Choose One From My Eighth Grade Year When I Did Annie Jr {No, I Didn't Shave My Head For It}Wink204339_201705123184760_4460148_o.jpgImage Enlarger

I Also Really Love The Band Coldplay {Points To Signature} 

If I've learned anything over the years... It's that things come and go, but in the end you always return to the beginning eventually... Even if you find it to be filled with disgust and agony, it's a place that is yours and /can/ be repaired... If you have the right tools, that is... Happy Trails...

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love Dr. Seuss

Hey everybody! Interesting posts so far!

My name is Trey, as most already know. Username is a palindrome of my name backwards. I use it for almost everything, when I don't use treyrmason (which should be pretty straightforward to figure out haha).

I'm 17.8 ish years old, recently got my license and bought a fix-'er-up-er truck that I'm working on. I'm a senior at the same high school as UnOrthodox99, kidychen (who went there but no longer does) , and ohhaiitsraven.

I am a musician and always will be. I play bass guitar, drums/percussion, and a little of a lot of other instruments. I am the Percussion Captain of the award winning percussion section at our high school (whose videos are available at http://youtube.com/CaptionHead I am in the "New Start" video on the right with glasses). Been in honors bands and what not as well as community bands.

I write tons of music as well as arrange others' music. Lots of my band music can be found at http://the6ix.com/themasonjar . I haven't updated it in a while.

I love math and some science. I am a lot better with logical studies than interpretation studies (English :p). I'm the president of our chapter of Mu Alpha Theta, the math honor society.

I aspire to go to University of Maryland at College Park, MD with either an Engineering major or Computer Science major, with a Music minor.

That's just an overview of who I am! Here are my last few facebook profile pictures, as they are generally representative of me. :P

I can't get a pic since I'm on vacation so you guys won't be able to see my very amazing face. Anyway my name is actually Conner, as confusing as it may seem. I live in Washington state and am the second youngest (and best looking , ladies Wink) mod. I'm pretty outgoing and have better muscles than dan. I'm not too sure what else to put here lol.

Edit: I'm on my phone so excuse poor sentence structure and autocorrects.

I have awesome shoulders.

I was born and raised in the basement of the Fratellis. They're a bad bunch of people. My favorite three things in life are 1) Chunk 2) Baby Ruths and 3) Minecraft.

Sloth_mc.jpg

Oh you want the truth do you? Well, the truth is I'm excessively interesting. Some might consider me the most interesting man in the world.

dosequis_vc.jpg

OK fine. People that actually know me call me Steve. If you called me by my proper first name I know you're a telemarketer or a salesman. I'm 32 and have two awesome kids that aren't neglected, despite what my son's image suggests. I'm married to the same woman I've dated since high school and known since first grade. I played competitive soccer through college and into the adult world for several years, until it got old waking up at 5AM to run several miles. I graduated from a few different schools and have a degree in fine art and a certification in Haz-Mat response.

In my spare time I play video games, draw and write. I don't draw as much as I used to, so doing stuff for VC is actually pretty fun and a good refresher course on art. Mostly I write now, and I've got over a dozen novels on my bookshelf. I haven't pursued publishing (which drives my wife nuts) because that seems like work and for now, writing is just fun.

If you're interested in what I look like, look at the image of my son. Now add thirty years, darker hair, darker eyes, darker skin, more definition... you know what, he looks nothing like me. He's all his mom. Smile So I guess you're all out of luck! Thanks for reading, have a good one!

Looks like the failure of minecraft is up next!  Why is my user name called "Dalferes"?  There's actually a reason behind that.  My name's Daniel Alferes.  I currently live in Massachusetts but been debating a move to Florida (Massachusetts life is stressful as hell).  I've had several jobs but my most comfortable environment is doing technical support as a lot of feedback I get becomes very rewarding personally.  The high school I went to has more syllables than the college DramaticBandGeek wants to go to - Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School, where I majored in Information Technology/Programming and Web Development.  Here are some pics of me:

1. Me doing a dance before work at my last job.

2. Me blow drying brownies because I couldn't wait for them to cool off.

3. Me looking into the far distance out on a mountain..... Actually that's the back splash of an L.L. Bean store lol.

Well I wouldnt say im the most "Infectable"gamer irl But im a pretty Infectous gamer. I use to play skyrim ALL the time but then I got bored of beating it so much :> Im on vacation atm at some cotteges in a place called Tobermory heres the cabin im staying in: http://www.blueheronco.com/tob.....age-7.html (Anual meet up with the family) Anyways I live in a city called cambridge near toronto in Canada Im on my tablet right now so I can't do any pics. I run a small tekkit server with my friends and I run fraps at the same time which pretty much melts down my computer XD. I find lately now that I cant get on a computer for the time being so I check the forums every hour or so(not a bad thing :) ). My IRL name is Devin Abraham and of course ive always been asked if im related to abraham lincoln.... Which kindof is impossible because abraham is his first name... Well thats my wall of text xD
@Pherian HEEEEEY YOUUUU GUUUYSS!!! :D

Aloha from Canada...

yeah, aloha isn't Canadian, but it's bloody hot this summer, so aloha works best.  I'm 32, and my name IRL is Cameron, born and raised in Alberta, and currently living between London and Toronto in Ontario.  When I'm not playing MC (and usually when I am playing MC) I'm a photographer, and videographer (with graphic designer thrown in there as well).  Which if you know anything about the work, it's 10% with a camera in my hands, and 90% on the computer rendering 300GB files around like they were confetti... There aren't a lot of pictures of me, as I enjoy hiding behind the camera, as opposed to in front of it.  My genre of work is focused on the music industry, so most of my clients are bands, organizers, or concert venues.  Yes, i get in for free, but its not a "go drink" work environment.  

I'm a collector of tattoos in my spare time, and have about 15% coverage right now.  Doesn't sound like a lot... but it's about 65+ hours of work, so far.

here's a couple rare occasions where I was caught in front of the camera.  first one was a fan who took the cameraman's photo at a concert, second one is my newest piece of work.

Allright - I was born in Maryland, and I have won 22 Olympic medals (18 gold).

me.jpgImage Enlarger

 

Oh wait... I think I just got my bio mixed up while watching the Olympics :)

Okay - the real me:

Me

My name is Brian and I've lived in Minnesota my whole life (except for college, in Texas).  I am a programmer for a living, and for hobbies I love to play the piano, I'm into photography (Canon 60D), video games, and I love to run.  I am usually very calm - it takes a lot to get me angry.  I like to make people laugh.  I weigh 0.061235 metric tons.

Family

My wife and I have been married for 9 years now - she's still my beautiful bride:

us.jpgImage Enlarger

 

We have 3 kids - they are the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Sydney - she is super passionate about everything she does, and she is really into Minecraft. She would play all the time if I let her - and no, I don't let her on VeteranCraft yet :)  

here's one of Sydney when she was 2 years old:

s.jpgImage Enlarger

 

Then there is Paityn.  She is super laid back - she wiped out on the street today and skinned her knees and said, "I'm okay!"  She always does crazy stuff and keeps us laughing.  Her hair is always flying around in her face, and she always puts her shoes on the wrong feet - but she likes it that way!  Here's one of her last year:

p.jpgImage Enlarger

 

Here is a picture of the girls together a month ago: 

g.jpgImage Enlarger

 

(Sydney is at the age, when you tell her to smile she does a really fake smile)

Then there's my new buddy, Carson.  He was born at the end of March, and the poor little guy was born with pneumonia and had to stay in the hospital for an extra week.  Seeing your kid suffer is one of the hardest things you can ever go through:

c0.jpgImage Enlarger

 

But he is doing great now - he's a nice, chubby 4 month old!

c.jpgImage Enlarger

 

You better cut me off... Once I get bragging on my family it's hard to stop me :)

I think that covers it - that's me in a nutshell (Help!  I'm in a nutshell!)

You can change images to not clash with the text with some options, click the image and then click on the tree-icon. :) Oh and good luck on the ring-part.

I'm pretty private so, this will be brief. :)

I'm Keith, 32, living in Greenville, SC.  I'm a Transportation Planner, which is easy enough to describe "I plan road projects," but much more difficult to explain. The best I can do is point you here: GPATS

For video games I enjoy pretty much everything except sports/racing and first-person shooters, but I have a special love for sandboxes and simulations, and will never turn down a good retro platformer.

Oh and here's me:
