Hey there.  Welcome to giffgaff.


If you're looking to introduce yourself, you can pop over to our Welcome & Join section and say hi in this thread right here.


What you'll find below is the old introduction thread. There's a lot of history and sweet memories (not to mention members) in this thread, so we thought we'd preserve it for historical value. Smiley Happy


Enjoy and see you around the community!


Welcome to our gaff, what can we get you?


This thread can be used to introduce yourself to the community. Just say hello or maybe even add a little bit about yourself. Settle in and tell us, "How do you take your tea or coffee?"



After you've placed your order, why don't you catch up with what's going on in our community here and please do read the community guidelines, which you automatically agree to by using and posting on the community Smiley Happy

HI all,


This thread can be used to introduce yourself to the community. Just say hello or maybe even add a little bit about yourself. Whatever you feel comfortable with Smiley Happy


I'll start it off (I've got a bigger introduction on the notice board should you be very interested):


Hi all,


I'm Vincent, although here we spell every name without capitals, so Vincent will do Smiley Wink


I joined giffgaff on the 4th of January, but have been lurking around for quite a while now. I'm the community manager here at giffgaff so should you need anything, don't hesitate to give me a shout!


So have fun, enjoy yourself, and don't be afraid to speak up and make suggestions.

Hey Dan,


Welcome to Giff Gaff! Kudos on the Vlog, I am stoked to be part of a generation where we can do that kind of stuff! If you are good with garage band, purrrrhaps we can work together on coming up with some jingles for my podcast 'Interwebzicast'?


Did you PAY for photoshop? I'm pretty sure i'm the only person I know who did ...

Hey. I'm Alex Power.


I'm 14 years of age and I live in Manchester!


I like to play instruments such as drums and guitar; and I have phobia of spiders; and I have fairly long hair; and best of all, I know many Spanish swear words! Smiley Surprised


That's me in a nutshell.

I'm borobabe, and I have been with Giffgaff since the forum site was set up. I used to co-host, co-edit, co-produce and co-present a radio show on Preston FM, all about mobile phones, and how to get the best out of them. We compiled an A to Z of mobile phone terminology which we used on the show, in an attempt to de-mystify the jargon that surrounds mobile phone technology. We also reviewed handsets, presented network news, and anything else that we thought would interest mobile phone users. I am enjoying my VIG status here on Giffgaff, and feel proud when I see the VIG icon next to my name. I am more than happy to offer any help and advice that I can give to fellow Giffgaff members and forum users. If anyone wants to ask me anything, please feel free to do so, and I will try to answer your question.

Well...I guess i may say my Hello's ....I'm Nige (or Megatron so my team call me) from L'Derry in Northern Ireland and well what more can i say about myself other than being a nut case I.T guy (I love my gadgets). In my hobbies and passtime i am a Renault Mechanic from the house and a Car Detailer/Valeter. All that can be said from that is i don't have much drinking time....but i try to have the odd pint!
