Firstly, your sig looks fine. Nothing wrong with a little advertising as long as it's confined to your signature.
As for the name "GiveUpAlready", that story is long forgotten. The original owner left over a year ago, still claming that it "was just a cool name". I know of no reason to doubt that, but legends live on.
I suppose our core is a role play forum, although a lot of members don't participate in that portion of the board at all. Discussion forums exist for topics ranging from Politics to Sports and even Hobbies. Of course, a Miscellaneous section exists for those insanely random threads we all have the need to create from time to time.
The member base, funnily enough, does not have a Role Playing origin. Most have come from the game Kings Of Chaos (www.kingsofchaos.com), for which we host a KoC forum.
I think that's a fairly even overview of the boards. Now welcome to GuA.

^^Great stuff my man, thanks for the briefing of the site history... KoC, i think that's how i made my way here, although the forums looked more interesting to me
Not sure i wanna sign up to KoC coz i dont think i can put the time into a MMORPG atm but i'll check it out some day
*all is good*

you don't have to play KoC to be a 'full' member here. If you don't have time for it then don't play.
But anyways welcome to GUA, look around and I'm sure you will find something you like.
