I have ben looking around the site and looks like i may just fit in with a name like mental,  :hats off: look forward to hopefully catch some of you online, the only games at the moment i got are race 07,gtr evo,STCC and GTR2
I'm 42  which is too old for gaming but too young too retire

Welcome :)

I think 42 will make you almost "junior" around here, so its definitely not too old!

Welcome! Always glad to see new people around here. With the games you have, you should be set for playing around here, the only other game you could need in the future is GTL and rFactor. 42 is a good age to be around here, you will not feel old for being a person that plays sims.

You must have one of the greatest sons ever if he got you GT-Legends! :)

What happened with the application Neville?  We just changed to a new form, so we may have some bugs.

Ok it looks like the new form isn't sending Emails for some reason.  I'm working on it, so would you mind submitting again with the old form?  The link should be fixed.

I'm sorry mate.  I did just get the new application fixed so it would send Emails.

What sort of problems did you have?  I'd like to fix them if possible. 

Sorry for turning your first post here into a tech support thread.  :(  You just lucked out to be the first one to try out the new form.

Welcome Nev, "tawreet bugger" ?
Manc Here, but don't let that put you off :)

Take your time to look around, but if the whisper of you getting GTL is correct then you might be in for a treat come Friday nights. It's our 'social' event where we get pissed as farts and go tear arsing through the virtual world in our pretend cars (we use a communication ap called Ventrilo which you will read about in your welcome eMail I think). Get yourself a headset (the language can be fruity at times) and we'll be glad to meet you.

There's a healthy GTR scene here so you should find plenty to do (good advice about rFactor though, it's cheap and there is a host of community developed modifications for it ... F1, touring cars, lawnmowers... you name it)

Anyroad up... welcome :toast:

Welcome to Sim Junkies Neville, you will find the age "Barrier" has been removed from the SJ vocabulary, we use no words costing more than $1.00(too difficult to spell) and the more colorfull ones are available on rental basis only :rotfl:
I remember we did some kind of thread on the median age here a while back, as I recall: http://simjunkies.org/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=151&jfile=index.php&topic=2874.msg29859#msg29859
Everybody starts somewhere, you have found one of the best groups of people to help you into Sim Racing and Mental Therapy all under the same roof, we might be a little "left" of plumb, but find it helps on hard right corner entrys  :twit:
See you around.

Kevin. age 48

Hahahahaha.... we dont see him much either  :rotfl:  oh .. his function... well.. thank god it's a virtual one!


Welcome to simjunkies Neville,

Mental Nev.. ehr.. you could spar with our other Mentalists... there's plenty of those running around... just make sure you brake in time to follow the track AND the other junkies... or be the leader of the pack... since you've obviously, at the age of 42, have enough life-expirience to be a leader... oh wait.. no managers in Yorkshire... sorry.


Have a good one here Nev, hope to see you soon on track.


and no.. we wont tell your boy that GTL was on YOUR debit/creditcard... he'll read it in the forum here some day.  :D


Woof ~ Woof

Welcome Neville, I guess you'll fit in here nicely.  :gtg:

Welcome Nev! Glad to see you got Ventrillo sorted out. (Louis n I chatted with him a bit this morning) Feel free to ask questions, i'd suggest keeping a pen and paper close by for notes. We'll coach you through donwloading and installing mods and the SJ skinpack.
