Hello/Hola/Ciao/Bonjour/Coi

Post by GamerGeek » 17 May 2017 17:41

Hello.
I am one of those people who's username they've been using so long, they use it for everything.
How did I get here? I kinda already wrote that on another forum, so I'll quote it:
I am Spielsprache. Once a gamer, now a linguist.
I started by playing Minecraft, then I started playing Portal, then I played games other than Minecraft again.
At some point I started making Phonetic Alphabets, ya know, because English is terrible?
Then I discovered the IPA. IP-Yay?
Alias(es): GamerGeek, but some people call me "Gamer". I guess you could also call me SpielSprache
Location: In the Universe
Date of birth: I'd rather not say
Gender: Male
Occupation: None
Interests: Linguistics, Gaming
Favorite music: I listen to The Sims 2 Soundtrack, PvZ Remixes, and Harry's Portal music all the time
Political ideology: Quite left.
Conlangs: I actually suck at conlanging
Other hobbies: Gaming (Ocassionally)
Where do you see yourself in ten years?: Idk
Playing the biggest game of Chinese telephone is fun.

I already introduced myself in the introduction thread, but I'll do that too:

Alias(es): NeoNamo (IRC), Unapersona (Wikimedia projects)
Location: Catalonia, Spain
Date of birth: last century, prefer not to say :P
Gender: nonbinary. Please they/them pronouns
Occupation: student!
Interests: languages (of course), music, programming (sometimes), LGBT+ issues.
Favorite music: no special type of music. Right now, I listen to Pentatonix and Sonata Arctica.
Political ideology: somewhere in the left spectrum. Probably socialdemocrat? Actually, it depends: do you want the idealist answer or the realist one?
Conlangs: Nevira 1.0 (dead and deleted), Nevira 2.0 (or just Nevira) and Tarina (very new). You see, I like the words that end in -a.
Other hobbies: playing the piano, programming, reading, writing, reading again.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? On Earth, I hope, with a job as a translator or interpreter!
Languages:

:es-ca: Native (why does it have more than 4 lines, though?)
:esp: Native (not as good as Catalan)
:eng: Intermediate (with Catalan accent)
:epo: Basic
:fra: Elementary
:lotr: Less than elementary

Mahler is not my favourite composer, actually. It's a long story. I'm a user of the #wikipedia-ca Freenode (IRC) channel and, before I changed my nick to NeoMahler, I used "Unapersona" (which, in Catalan and Spanish, it means "Aperson"). Sadly, a troll used this nick (probably because it's a silly name) and I got banned. The operators asked me to change my nick to a more unique one.

By that time, I had finished a Catalan Wikipedia article about the 8th symphony of Mahler (it was missing) and it got the "featured article" distinction. So a I had the idea of using the name of the composer and adding the prefix Neo- because it means new (to make sure people didn't think that I was the real Mahler :P) and also, as a Matrix tribute, I guess.

You could get your wikipedia name changed.
Also, I prefer "nova" [:P] I once named an open conworld project called Terra Novus, which failed.

Alias(es): None. spanick is the closest thing I have to an alias and it's a pretty piss poor one at that.
Location: California
Date of birth: 1989
Gender: Male
Occupation: Farming Technician, basically I do R&D for farming technology. However, these days my primary job is to fly a drone.
Interests: linguistics (primarily phonology, phonetics, historical linguistics, Germanic linguistics, and Yokuts); history (in particular, ancient near east, medieval europe, WWI, and US civil war); catholic theology; liturgy (both history of and actual praxis, particularly catholic/orthodox liturgy but I like studying the ritual prayer of just about any religion)
Favorite music: Ska, pop-punk, country, chant (gregorian and mozarabic)

Where do you see yourself in ten years? Hard to say. Every time I had some sort of plan it changed rather dramatically. I can say with some certainty that I will be married, with kids, and tired...that describes me now, so I imagine it will be the most consistent thing about me for the next ten years lol

Partially, yes. It's a combination of that, my love of medieval history, and my catholic-ness haha
