2) The clan I'm currently in, while enjoyable, has been going through a nasty drama phase. As such, many people have left, and the environment in chat is now a toxic one. I really dislike that, so I'm trying to find a better place to be. I have had a bit of time lurking in Shy's discord since I started subbing on twitch, and everyone is quite nice and lively. In addition, I always like having a place where I can help new players out in the game, and this clan seems like it has a good mix of newer and veteran players. I spent a long time on the big warframe discord as a mod, so I'm used to big bustling chats, and frankly really enjoy them.
3a) Within Warframe, I started about 16 months ago. When I first finished the tutorial and got to my ship, I said hi in region chat, and said that I was new, and did anyone have any advice for me? Immediately, I got 5 friendly whispers, and one person invited me to a farming run, then at the end gave me a affinity booster. To be clear, I didn't ask for that, he just gave it to be friendly. From that point, I've done what I can to give back to the community, by helping new players. As I mentioned above, I became a welcomer, then a mod, on the main warframe discord, and really enjoyed my time there, and my ability to help new players, and be a good first impression of this community. I've moved away from that discord for a while, but I still love to help new folks.
3b) Outside of Warframe, I'm a mechanical engineering student in the US. Outside of gaming, I enjoy watching soccer, cooking, reading historical fiction, and trying to not freak out about the current global issues.
