About Me (Read on forum):
I'm Alfawarlord.

If you wonder why the name. Alfa refers to the name of the student club I was in during my years in college. I picked the warlord part because runescape is a medieval based game and the term gives my name something powerful.

About Me (Read on forum):

I'm Darkblitz and I've been with RuneHQ since 2006. Most of my time was spent hanging out in the Submissions area helping out with anything I could. Most of my submissions were maps and I take pride in what I've done to help keep this place up to date for all these years.

At the moment, I am a Site Admin (Technical / Community) in charge of the Developers and the Community Crew. This means that I help push out awesome new features and updates for the site and spread the great word of RuneHQ out to the community.

I am also one of the Deputy Owners for the official RuneHQ Clan. I look after the Clan Staff and help make decisions and progress to benefit our community.

Previously, I have been a Content Manager, which meant I took care of the Content Editors while also keeping RuneHQ up to date. I helped out with the Events Team representing Asia-Pacific friendly timezone events, contributing to events planning and execution. While the Newspaper was active, I also led the Newspaper staff and was responsible for releasing our newspaper to the public on time. It has since been removed.

If you'd like to find out more, please feel free to drop me a PM on the forums. :)

About Me (Read on forum):

I'm 52 and never been kissed! yea right....I'm a perverted dirty little old man

I served in the US navy for 10 yrs as a Nuclear trained machinist mate and obtained the rank of E6 Petty officer 1st class. I traveled to Scottland, England, Nova Scotia as well as Puerto Rico while serving on a submarine stationed in Scotland. I also served on a Fast attack sub based in Grotton CT and traveled all over the east coast, mainly Florida for torpedo testing but hit several other ports also.

After the navy I got a job in a Commercial Nuclear power plant as a Radiation Protection technician. After a year I transferred to Chemistry and a little while after that was hired as a Rad Waste Shift Supervisor. Due to company restructuring I was moved to Fire Protection group while I looked for a permanent job. I gravitated to the computer field and finally landed a job with the computer support group.

I have been doing some form of computer related support ever since.

I started RuneHQ because there just was no real good help sites out there as far as I was concerned. I thoroughly enjoy running RuneHQ.

This section filled out thanks to Star for bitching at me for not having it filled out!

About Me (Read on forum):
A lady never tells her age but if you can do basic math it is easy enough to figure out. B-)

I started working in healthcare food-service right out of high school and worked my way up to department head. The last 20-years of my food-service career, I spent working at a care facility for the mentally retarded running the kitchen.

In 2000 I started my college career taking as many online courses as possible so I could continue to work. I hold the following degrees:
2005 - Bachelor's degree in Management Information Sciences with a focus on Process and Project Management 2007 - Master's degree in Instructional Design for Online Learning (IDOL)
2010 - Completed course work and comprehensive exams for a PhD in IDOL: dissertation in progress

When I married Gene in 2007, I quit working and let him support me while I finished school. During this time I did some teaching at a local community college where I taught Excel and basic HTML and CSS along with Dreamweaver.

To gain a foothold into a big corporation, I began working for IBM Global Services in 2011 working as a TSM Administrator. I am currently trying to move into the training branch with IBM and hope to finish my dissertation in the near future.

I began playing Runescape in the early days of the game - around 2003 - 2004. My nephew and his friends got interested in it and he talked me into creating an account. Looking back, I think he just wanted me to pay for his membership, but this was also the first interaction I had with RuneHQ. Little did I know how this would impact my life in the coming years.
