I didn't know your name was Mike.
I assume you're going to change your username then?
Edit: Why is this a "redirect" thread or something?
I'd imagine for 2 reasons:
1 you want new members to introduce themselves so putting a redirect up top directs them to the proper place to do so
2 a singular intro thread just for introductions could reduce multiple intro threads, or he forgot to make it a sub-forum of off topic community
