Hey! I'm wilvur, or Aitana, or A. I prefer A, but your pick.
I'm not from the US (props to you if you guess where I'm from) I speak mostly Spanish, but I've been learning English for half my life, and I use it so much I'm almost bilingual. A spelling or grammar mistake or two may happen from once in a while, so I'm going to ask you to forgive me for that and, if posible, politely point them out.
I've been interested in ARGs since I knew they were a thing, but I have never actually participated in one. I think I have a lot of learning to do, so that's why I'm here.
Not much more to say. I'm dying to dig into this.
We're happy to have you along, Aitana! Contact me or any of the old guard if you have any questions, and here's hoping we can solve puzzles together!
Hello! Snek, Snekky, Smuggle whatever I have been interested in technology for so long now, love PC gaming since kindergarten If i am an RPG character, I probably have dipped some levels on almost every classes (I can do many things but barely good at anythings lol)
I learned about ARGs not so long back, a year I think. And I love the concept of mixing fiction and reality together with fun puzzles and stuff! I bad at solving puzzles though, still thinking inside the box most of the time. Looking forward to improving it.
"I am always nicer to people i barely know." I told my friends this. So you might not want to get too close if you don't like some friendly insults, eh.

Hi, my name is Steph. I learned what an ARG is during my commute today and now here I am! I'm not really sure what all of this is but I know that I love puzzles! I also love yoga, board games, pandas, and evolutionary biology.
Hello. My name is EV and I'm here to learn more about what I am capable of.
My parents used to have a slew of books laying around with the words "spiritied child" in the title - you know, "How to Raise Your Spirited Child" and "Growing with Your Spirited Child." I guess I've always gone looking for challenges, even before I knew what I was getting into.
The spirit-ness hasn't changed, but I'm finally starting to understand why I'm compelled to look deeper. I've always had this feeling that there's something else going on; something just under the surface. I want to know what that something (or someone) is. I think ARGs might be my next attempt at a way in. Now I just have to figure out how to navigate them; as if it's that easy, right? That's why I'm hoping this like-minded community will help me to grow and I can, in turn, help you, if possible.
I'm not great with computers, yet, but I'm very intuitive. I love to read and listen to podcasts, mostly sci-fi, magical realism, and contemporary lit (although I am starting to read more non-fiction). Recommendations always welcome! I also adore videogames, but I'm a little behind the times, especially since this poor laptop is on the verge of collapse. I still have one of the original 1985/6 Nintendo consoles, which I will one day repair and play every single day.
My name's Em. I've enjoyed puzzles since I was a kid, mostly in video games. Some of my fondest memories are playing Silent Hill 2 & 3 on easy combat/hard puzzles. I've been super interested in ARGs for a while, but actually participating has felt overwhelming. The puzzles often feel well-and-truly out of my league. I'm hoping Levels will be a good way to learn.

Wow, it's been a while since i was here. I was an original LEVELS participant, level 6. I've been doing ARGs for about a year, and currently admin quite a large solver server on Discord. Hobbies include solving, computer games, and avoiding being doxxed. damn raiders. Please, just call me OTB or block. Chur, OTB

Hello all! Call me M. I've been interested in ARGs for ages and have spent a lot of time lurking about ARG forums but always felt a bit overwhelmed and underqualified to participate. I stumbled upon a link to this website tonight on a reddit forum, and hope to learn a lot more about the cool esoteric puzzle solving required.

Hi! I'm postminimal (you can call me post), and I'm new (sort of) to ARGing (is that a word?), but I've been interested for a long time. I first discovered ARGs when a strange YouTube video started trending years ago. It had been discovered by 4chan users and 4chan was down at the time, so everybody googled around and found the Unfiction website looking for answers. Not a 4channer myself but I kind of wound up at Unfiction via tsunami, looking for answers to the video myself. Looked around a bit, dabbled in a couple of startups ARGs, then dropped out. Seemed like I'd missed all the good ones, like Perplex City and the one tied to the TV show Numb3rs. The new ones weren't very good, and the few new ones at the time that were looking good died out due to poor game planning or unplanned life problems by the puppetmasters. I've checked in every now and then, but haven't found a reason to start back up...
...until maybe now. I love solving puzzles and I thought the tutorials on this site did a pretty good job. I like that there are some available puzzles that have already challenged me (no, not really -- the levels website does not contain anything hidden, no, not at all), and I'm looking forward to getting my feet a little more wet.
I am trying to wrap up a DMA in music composition, so my attention is divided, and my time management is inconsistent. Nevertheless, I'll come around as often as I can.

Hullo all! I'm elpsycongroo- feel free to call me "elpsy" or "roo." I might be a time traveller from 2036... or just a puzzle addict with chuunibyou tendencies. Either way, my experience with ARGs has been pretty peripheral so far. I've always wanted to jump in, but thus far I've lacked the nerve.
