Welcome everyone! We are very excited to be able to open the doors on RiftUI!

I'll go ahead and start. Many of you will know me from our other sites, but for the rest of you:

Hi, my name is Cairenn. I am one of the founders and admins on our group of sites. We (myself & Dolby) have been running interface sites for the MMORPG community since 2002. We currently have 6 sites with this being our 7th, covering 8 games. You can find links to our other sites in the footer at the bottom of the page.

Before anyone asks - yes I am an honest-to-goodness female. Still somewhat of a rarity in the MMORPG world I know, but there are a few of us around. I've been a fan of Interface "modding" ever since my introduction to it with EverQuest and my enjoyment of the communities that we create for those of like interests has only continued to grow over the years that I've been involved with it. I am the 'face' of the site, taking care of all of the front end requirements on a site like this; taking care of you guys (our authors and users), being the liaison between our sites and the respective game companies, etc.

So, enough about me. Allow me to take this moment to give you a brief introduction to the rest of the staff and volunteers. Dolby is the other founder and administrator on the site. He's the one that takes care of all of the coding and such needed to keep the site running smoothly. I'd also like to introduce you to Nobgul and Seebs. They are the first two volunteer moderators for the site. Try not to be too mean to them.

Everyone, please do feel free to say "hi" and introduce yourselves.

Hi, I wrote only a few WoW addons over on WoWI

I was in the Rift Beta for a while, but I'm excited to meet the RiftUI community

Hi everyone,
I've been playing Rift since beta and I'm really enjoying it. This is my first actual mmo playing by my self (without my folks) and I'm keen to try everything the game has to offer. My folks got me into wow and lotro before Rift so i know a little about addons. I would like to try and learn how to develop addons so I'm going to have lots of questions for sure
Cairenn, I'm also an honest-to-goodness female, just not an adult one yet

Hi! I'm very excited to be here and can't wait to see what the future holds in store for this community! I have only a little experience in software development, but I'm going to dive right into Rift addon development and not come up for air until I'm satisfied!

Thanks a bunch to Dolby and all the staff!

Hi.

I've been playing WoW for several years, wrote my own addons, maintained briefly addon written by another. I use several nicknames; my WoW one is (was) "Zhiva".

Cairenn, I'm a woman too. On "rarity" of female MMO players: it's estimated that about 40% of WoW subscribers are women.

HERRO!

Glad to see another MMO adding interface customization. I'll definitely give Rift a try now, since my main gripe with the game during beta was lack of customization.

Depending on how many people game together in this community, I might take a break from WoW and join in sometime, though I do plan to attempt porting some stuff over either way.

I didn't say female gamers are rare. There are lots of us, for which I'm very happy! Girl power! Highly visible women working in the MMORPG industry, however, are much more rare. That group is growing too, though, as time goes by.

Hey folks!

I've dabbled a little with addons in WoW (and can be found at WoWI under the same username), although nothing major.

I'm pretty stoked about addons coming for Rift so I can sort out a few quality of life issues I have with the default interface.

Well, I am not a female, regardless of my Rift toon.

On topic: I've played WoW for six years, but I have switched to Rift. In the former, I wrote or contributed to about half a dozen addons, and I am really looking forward to see what the latter's API looks like. If interesting and robust, I just may contribute a few Rift addons.

Over on Curse, I have been a moderator for their forums. You might have seen one of my approaching 5000 posts helping people out.

Hello Everyone!!

I can't wait to see this community get up and running - looking forward to getting to know this crowd.

I'm glad Rift has decided to let us work on some addons and I can't wait to get running on it. I'd cancelled my sub with Rift and gone back to wow - half the fun of wow was my UI And in the near future I can do that with Rift YAYAY

Not sure why it wouldn't work for you Manorton. What browser are you using? Any blocking software? Did you try logging in with the email address that you used to register with on the other site(s)?

[Edit] Well, you just went from a regular registered user to a premium user, so I'd say that yes, you got them linked now.

Either way, glad to see you here. Glad to see everyone that's here. This is a fantastic start for the community, especially considering how little we actually know of what Trion is going to give us access to.

Looking forward to it

Hi, all. This is Bludwyng from the ZAM Wikibase. Can't wait to see what enhancements y'all come up with! Hopefully a way to set waypoints can be found that will allow use of all those wonderful coordinates we have been entering in the wiki!
