Introduce Yourself

Postby Izzy » Fri Oct 12, 2012 5:03 am

Hello smo, feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself here. What brought you to stepmania/smo or music games in general?

I'm Izzy and I've been playing stepmania since 2001. I quit back in 2008 and only recently started playing again because of smo.net. I used to be a moderator over at smo.com and have always loved smo. So here we are trying to bring back the community so I hope you guys stick around.

Note: Please don't confuse me with the Swedish Izzy that goes by Izzysm.

KandaRainbowsoul AKA Allen_Kanda, current administrator of Vocamania.
I also used to be an english moderator on the former SMO.

I'm 16, female, and on stepmania since 2011. I found it out thanks to one of my friends and a cleanup of my folders LOL.

Hello all :)

Hi, I'm Angelo, and I'm the creator of OpenSMO (the software this server runs on).

I'm not the best SM player, but I like to think of myself as close-to-avarage :P
Here's my SMO profile: http://smonline.net/index.php?page=profile&uid=205

I started playing back in 2005 or so, but had a long break until 2010. Then I met someone on college who has the exact same name as me (Angelo) and he also played Stepmania! That has got me back into the game. We played a lot of SMO after that.

Just months before SMO.com went down, I started working on OpenSMO as a mini sideproject, mainly as a project to see if I could do it. And now I'm here!

I'm 19, currently employed as an international exchange student in Croatia. (I originally live in The Netherlands)

Here's my portfolio, if anyone cares: http://angelog.nl/ :P

Hi all, Thumbsy here, I too am an admin over at vocamania.net :p
18 years, from the Netherlands, have been playing StepMania and dancing games in general for about two years now, playing on pad exclusively.
Originally started playing StepMania to get better at the real DDR (arcade) games, but nowadays I'm playing custom files more than I do official DDR ones :]

I really loved SMO for logging all my stats neatly, that and the ability to play with others of course.
But it was especially the statlogging that made SMO so attractive for me.
So that's why I joined here, and will make this my default (and probably only) server to play SMO :p
I hope that one day this server/website will reach all the functionality and goodness the original server had, and continue to grow beyond that!
I wish the server owners/admins/devs good luck!

See you all around :]

I'm 23, and am a CNC programmer. I live on my own. so yes, I do have responsibilites!

How do you play if you are blind? Brailmania?



I'm Cube. Admin here. Working on making SMO a better place. Been playing Stepmania since 04. All about ITG though. Some people here may have heard of/used ITGPro. That would be something I created.

I have been playing index forever but houkouonchi always picks spread songs, so I just switched over to spread. So give me a break if I suck. I will catch back up soon!

Tell me about it. I stay over my friend's house for two days, come back, and both of you already have like 600k exp! I've got some serious SM playing to do if I want to catch up with you guys again.

Anyway, I'm foxfire, and I've been playing SM since I was introduced to it by a friend of mine on FFR. I've always enjoyed rhythm games, but I was mostly playing Guitar Hero and Rockband up until I stumbled upon FFR around June of 2009. I consider myself to be a decent player, and SMO has been giving me all the more reason to further improve my skills while having fun with others.

Allo~ I'm Mezz. I'm 24, and from the land of maple syrup and igloos. I was really into DDR when I was in highschool, and remember thinking one day, 'gee, it would be nice if there were an online version of this.' I found SMO thanks to a friend, and I played pretty well every day from 2005-2007. (I went by the name 'miissa' then.) I stopped playing until 2010, and just as I came back, the site went down, so I stopped again. I started back up in April this year, and was sad to see that everything was gone. I'm really enjoying the set up of this site and server, so I hope smo.net doesn't go anywhere!

In terms of skill level... I still have a long ways to go. I admit, I'm a bit intimidated by the song stats I'm seeing. >.>
I'm usually playing easier keyboard songs, but I'll attempt harder stuff. I always welcome company; rooms are more fun with random discussions.

Hello, i'm Tenshi or my real name is Dika from Indonesia. I'm 15 years old (high school student)
Firstly i'm playing guitar hero from 2009, then i stop playing and move to stepmania/itg since 2011 until now. Sometimes i'm struggle to FFR and making some simfiles at sm/itg but now i was too lazy to do it because there are too many tasks and exams.
I found SMOnline at Christmas Day 2011 by myself.
In SMOnline, i didn't just make the skills better, but have to communicate with people around the world.
Greetings and nice to meet u all 8-)

Hi everyone! I'm Ishtaracoon, French Player of stepmania since January 2012, I'm sixteen (student, like Tenshi). Before I get on Stepmania, I played a lot of games on browsers, all related more or less directly with the music, then enjoy the game and post videos of many of my scores on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/Ishtaracoon) I found SMO there's ten minutes thanks to one of my friends, and I intend to assist in bringing the French community Stepmania here!

Note: You can call me Racoon, for those who have difficulty pronouncing my nickname

~Oh nostalgia...


Hello there folks,my name is Pete.
At the moment,learning aviation,graphic design thingies and some languages.I like to eat oriental food,watch/read about asia and especially about japanese culture,listen to dance/trance/ambient music,hangin out with friends and to play both rythm and console games.

Started playing stepmania around early 2010 but it wasnt so serious playing as i started around January 2011.
Been posting on SMO.eu,OtakusDream.com and currently at Vocamania.net.
Also tried some FFR but i dropped it in the end.
Currently stepping for packs,doing my own pack and handling some gfx jobs at vocamania.

I would love to see this community and site flourishing and eventually,be something more than smo.com and smo.eu both merged.
I really like the current scoring system and song selection mechanism.

Hope we can play in future some stepmania!
Pieces~ :]

I glad to see new people getting into stepmania. It always seems like the stepmania community has only been shrinking since about 2007 and not getting any new people.

It's Foop.

As I've matured I've become less and less of a fuck.

I hope this community grows.

while I got sick of my old username, I will still keep my SMO sig and avatar for nostalgia.

It is a pretty cool shirt. Can't even seem to find a place to purchase it online, but I did find the original artwork for it. You could throw it in a custom t-shirt site and get it that way, I might.

Although .com will have to be edited to .net to make sense currently.

Edit: that was easy

No problem!

Looks like we both edited the image around the same time lol. Oh well, it took more time to start up PS than it did to actually edit the .com to .net anyway!
