    Hi @Elysium :) It's been good to see you around on some discussions already! This is the discussion I made for you. 

    I hope that you can find some other people to connect with. It's really great to hear that you're interested in supporting other people as well, as that's a big part of what we try and do here on the community.

    Do you have any particular interests or hobbies? Telling us a bit more about yourself might help you to connect with other members you have things in common with.
