How To Join OAP - Please Read This First

Postby The Elders » Fri 09 Jan 2004, 12:11 am

Welcome to OAP – Please read carefully to enjoy your stay!

Post an Introduction

Once you register yourself on the Forums, preferably with your PSN id as your username, the first thing to do is to post an introduction which should ideally have a minimum of 150 words.

Repeating the same word, phrase or sentence over and over, although very funny the first time, is not acceptable and the humour of it pales with the passing of time!

As we were educated in the 20th century, we find the use of "txt tlk" or lack of punctuation in your intro hard to read, which means you are likely to be ridiculed a little, don't say we didn't warn you!

Tell us things like:

Your Age
Your gaming history
How you heard about us
To be honest, anything to raise a smile in the collective body of OAP called the Bowling Club (or BC for short),
...lets be fair, at our time of life, a rise in any part of the body is always most appreciated!!

Following a satisfactory introduction, the first passing Admin will grant you access to a whole world of OAP and gaming goodness, where you will be able to interact with us on many different levels:

The Forums themselves
As well as the Open Forums, you will be allowed access to one of the ‘BC Only’ sections of the site called 'the Lounge' where you will find events and threads for the very latest games. You will also be able to sign up for events and post away to your heart’s content.

Chat Room
Join us in IRC (a live chat room) at any time of the day or night for some chat and banter.

Add yourself to the OAP twitter group for your 140 character fix.

Join the OAP group on Facebook and check out the latest status alerts. The group can be found at:-
After you've requested to join please mention your name in this forum:-

Get access to the RSS feed for the latest thread posts.

The OAPodcasts, which you can access immediately, are also well worth a listen. We could even be persuaded to do some more.

Most importantly - Playing Online
And of course, fill up your friends list with lots of like-minded mature gamers who play the same games as you.
