I was primarily an AD&D 1st edition DM and campaign designer for over 20 years then "retired" for about 10. I'm now getting back into it because my professional illustrator/daughter and I are building a game-world/campaign and we're building it for 4th edition.

As for me, I've been doing online game design off an on for that entire period. Do a google search of "Randy Farmer" or "F. Randall Farmer" and you'll find that I'm one of the co-inventors of the avatar and the virtual world, as well as a published author on various topics.

Google pointed me to rpg.stackexchange.com as a resource (I was trying to understand Skill Challenges) - and now I'm here to stay!

comment What is a good game for a conflict-avoidant, disaffectionate player
Please do not down-vote this for recommending a non RPG answer. I didn't read it as a requirement in the question. If enough of you disapprove (via comments) of this answer I will remove it. I'm really trying to help the questioner.
