    Hell- I mean, Wotcher, TF2M.net.

    My name is Dr. ROCKZO, the Rock 'n' Roll Clown. I do Cocaine. (Metalocalypse reference Google my name and all shall be revealed. Don't worry, I don't sniff illegal substances, let alone state that on community forums.)

    Whilst writing this, it is 1:33 in the morning (7 seconds would be win!) and I am struck by inspiration, I admit I haven't done my usual amount of testing the water before joining a new community but I believe that this is the most respected forum in the Internet of TF2 so I've jumped in Head First so to speak. My knowledge of this Site came to existence a long time ago, but has only been increased in the short history of time where I've been playing on the GameArena Payload server. It stocks all official maps (Whoops, that sounds like an advertisement, don't worry, it's not.) and (Next Stop: The Point.) many great custom maps all featuring the proud TF2M.net sticker-in-the-spawn-room. I, wanting to potentially (and quaintly) become a game something-or-ratherer in the future knew that this place would be the way to go about it.

    I have very basic experience in Source SDK Hammer. 'Nuff Said. I have made a couple of maps in it for CSS and enjoyed it, although I knew that they were bad.

    Now, I'm playing TF2. (Well, I have been for what, 2 years now?) and loving it. and after reading a couple of the more established map threads (Cashworks, Hoodoo) I've gotten in the mood to get back into mapping. I sure hope I follow through.

    Dr. ROCKZO's Stats:
    Residence: New Zealand
    Music Interests: Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, LCD Soundsytem, Rage against the Machine, Placebo, Battles, Interpol, UNKLE, Why?, Desert Sessions, PJ Harvey, The Black Seeds, Audioslave, Shapeshifter, cLOUDDEAD, Wolfmother, Cut Chemist, Fu Manchu, The Rapture, Blur, Rage Against the Machine, Deftones, Portishead, The Go! Team, 65daysofstatic. Yeah, I like Music.
    Class: Spy or Scout, getting into Soldier..
    Favourite Maps: I like Badlands, (who doesn't?) Freight and Halfacre at the moment..

    Shameless Plug of something I've made.

    So Thank You for reading. I hope to learn a lot from you guys.

    EDIT: Oh Yeah, I'm 13.

    I believe he follows me wherever I go. I added ROCKZO to my friends a while back, then discovered he lurks around the Steam Community forums, and now here. >.>

    Ironically, Seba-079, but with a clan tag. You also commented about my custom avatars on the Steam Community forums.

    Lies! You're blatently 48. I can smell the tuna and week old Earl Grey with Lemon Zest that speaks "I deny having had my mid-life crisis yet".

    I want to play along grazr, I really do, but I'm afraid that someone will take me seriously and actually mistake me for a 48 year old in denial..

    Oh what the hell.

    You whipper-snapper you! I bet you got my Dell a virus now to hack my Dell and find that out! Did I mention I just bought a Porsche and drove it really fast to pretend I was young again?
