I have been playing D&D for about 7 years now (I started right after 3rd edition came out). I have been slowly getting my feet wet with DMing in the last 2 years.
I started subscribing to Dungeon right after the Age of Worms adventure paths started (and quickly ordered copies of the issues I missed) and am running a party through AoW now (currently we are doing A Gathering of Winds). I just recently subscribed to Dragon to find that both Dungeon and Dragon are coming to an end.
The news of the end of Dungeon and Dragon while sad has brought me to this community. After the announcement I started checking this site everyday for news and started reading the messageboard and now spend more time here than I do on the official D&D website (the community here is much more mature and friendly). Since then I have posted a couple of times, one of which was responded to by members of Paizo's staff (I'm not worthy :P), and I even won a deck of the Dragon Trove item cards. Mostly I am a lurker and enjoy much of the banter I see on these boards.
