My Intro into HIVE

in Splinterlandslast year (edited)

Not sure if I posted in the right spot... Howdy fellow Hiver's. My names Josh. I am from a smaĺl(ish) city in Alberta, Canada. I am 33 years old, though I feel like I am 50. I got married at 21. 3 children and still married. I was introduced to Hive and Splinterlands by a buddy, @uglykillerpigz .
Growing up, I lived in Edmonton, Alberta. We didn't have much. My dad was on the road working for a moving company. We couldn't afford much for toys growing up, so we used our imaginations (like the good ol' days). Guns and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians. When we moved to where we live now, I became obsessed with collecting cards. Hockey (dad was intp collecting hockey cards) was my gateway into this dangerous hobby.
I collected Pokémon, YuGiOh, Digimon (had the entire set), and Magic the Gathering.
Lost them all growing up. No clue where they all vanished to.. (my poor Charizard)..
I am into playing video games. First Person shooters mainly, such as Call of Duty.. with the odd Minecraft.
I am not a blockchain smarty-pants, or a splinterlands guru.. but just some dude collecting digital cards and reliving childhood days.
I work for an Oil and Gas company, supplying the Oil and Gas industry with products to continue their drilling ventures. I did not graduate. Highest level of education is grade 11 (maybe).
I am eager to learn the ropes on hive and on splinterlands and hope to be a productive member for years to come.
Thanks everyone for reading! Until next time...

Welcome to Hive, Josh! I hope you'll like it here. :) Are you planning on playing the new Splinterlands game, in the tower defence genre?

I am hoping to do the Tower Defense as well, but it seems costly. Will have to only do 1 at a time.

Welcome to the Hive community @killerpigz!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, Keychain, Peaklock, and Hivesigner,
  3. The master password and the owner key are only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. DO NOT OPEN any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hiveans available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!
