As a means of contacting / identifying people who share the same interests I thought we could have a thread where you briefly list your special interests.

Pardon me if a thread like this already exists, but I couldn't see one.

This is not intended as a thread to discuss your special interest. Just briefly state what it is. Then, if anyone has the same interest, they can quote you and say: "me too!"

Then you can be PM buddies or go off and start a new thread.

Make two lists:

1.My past interests (either I lost interest or I learned all there was to know):


and

2.My current interests:

Note: please try and sum up each interest in one word or phrase only.

For example, if your interest is composing, please just use that word, rather than saying "I like to make up tunes on my clarinet and I've been doing it since I was eight years old and everyone says I'm really good and I play in an orchestra as well and some of my music has even been published and I...."

OK, you get the picture. :lol: Don't do that here. :wink:

Ready...set....go! :cheers:

I'm quite sure that there used to be a masterlist of members' special interests, and that it's not active anymore, but maybe someone would sort it out.

Can't divide mine to new and old because I don't get closure with any of my interests, but... British indie rock, gaming (mostly retro), Steampunk, cartoons, Dr. Who, art (creating).

Why not?

Is there something embarrassing about them?

TPP, I refuse to believe cones are your only special interest.
