Eoj Charlie, Owner
Usually referred to as Joe, he has been admin'ing and moderating communities since 2004. He was heavily active in games like Cybernations, Runescape and other MMORPG/Online games. Has since left most to focus solely on the Steam Community.
He also finds the fact that he's writing in the third person right now a little strange. He wants to thank all the staff and regulars for helping create something that he is both proud to be part of and still in awe of.
Please don't beg for free items from him(me). Also don't be offended if I am shit at answering your messages, I am always trying to do multiple things and sometimes Steam Messages slip through, feel free to add me, as long as you're not an ass.
Now this is a bio all about how
My admining got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And read how I became the head admin here
In East Arizona born and raised
On the computer is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out tradin' jokin' all cool
And all adminin' being a fool
When a specific guy was up to no good
Started makin' sentences who no one understood
We got in one little fight and I didn't care
And so I left to a place that couldn't compare.
I begged and pleaded with Joe day after day
But he ignored and sent me on my way
I gave him suggestions for a community that would be fit
He got some balls and said I might as well quit
First week yo this is awesome
Creatin' a server thinkin what it might become
Is this what we should have done a long time ago?
Hmmm this might really grow
But I start searchin, coding and all that
Is this the type of place that I should code at?
I think so I'll start learning somewhere
I hope they're prepared for crashes everywhere
Well the coding improved and plugins came out
There was a plugin that made my name stand out
I ain't tryin' to brag yet I just got here
I imagined what my coding would be like in a year.
I kept at it and coding became clear
The server became popular and I made plugins appear!
If anything I could say that this community was rare
But I thought lets make it special, No one could compare!
Time flashes to 1 year later.
I see the servers always full of players
Looking at this place over the year,
I'm glad my home is right here.
Screw it, I can't write in third person.
Hi all, Im Bottswana, or Botts for short. Since so many ask, the name came from a nickname I had back at school all those years ago and due to my lack of creative talent I ended up using it as my Steam handle.
I've been helping manage TF2 communities for nearly 6 years now, mostly keeping the now long running and event server going. It's seen quite a few name changes in its past and is slowly leaving us as the community a whole changes, but that dosen't mean my job here is done.
I help manage Harpoon, Maintain servers, and code stuff (The donator system is mine <3). Been coding since I was 18 and can code in PHP, C++, Java, Python, SourcePawn, Lua and a few others not worth mentioning. I don't really trade items so I wouldn't add me to ask if I want to sell stuff, It's not really my thing.
I may seem like a Jackass at some times, though generally this is me and Joe being stupid. I'm pretty easy going (If your name isn't Joe) so if you have any questions feel free to ask me.
-J PS: What the hell is a Liger?
Nimajin, Chief of Staff
I'm Nimajin or if you want, you can call me Amin. I'm a teenager who lives in Denmark. I currently go to High school and work a part time job at what would essentially be the Danish equivalent to Walmart. I enjoy listening to Rap & Hip-hop, some of my favorite artists are: SchoolBoy Q, Kendrick Lamar, & Eminem. I don't watch many shows; however, I did enjoy watching The Walking Dead & Breaking Bad.
I've been a huge fan of video games from an early age. Starting out with games such as Tekken on the PlayStation alongside with Rayman and Pokemon on the Gameboy. Since then I moved over to PC, where I would primarily play RuneScape (10+ YO account). Counter-Strike: Source would then go on to become my primary game followed by Team Fortress 2 when it went Free-to-Play. These days I mostly play Team Fortress 2 and PAYDAY 2.
I would like to consider myself a positive, openminded, and friendly person. If you have any issues or would just like to talk, feel free to send me a friend request!
Jacobhd404040, Deputy Chief of Staff
This is Jacob, he likes to play on the TTT server, even though he is pretty bad at the game. He loves hanging out with all of the people of Harpoon Gaming. If you ever want to play TTT or you want to learn how, give him a shout. Also, if you ever need someone to talk to, he will listen if he isn't busy.
Hyper has been at Harpoon since 2013 and has helped with a lot of events at Harpoon including the Highlander.
He is from Scotland, his favourite Colour is Purple and favourite music genre is Hardstyle.
He’s a big fan of his local ice hockey team in Braehead. He’s generally a nice guy to be around. Add him on steam, He doesn’t Bite as long as you don’t either.
Shadows, All-Trade & Unusual
Shadows is currently the head admin of TF2WH.com (TF2 Warehouse), an active member of the Harpoon Gaming staff, and was formerly a long time admin and mapper for MCT (Mann Co Trading). The latter two positions carried Steam Rep Green Shields. If you ever need to confirm his identity, going to SR to confirm that shield and the head admin WH note is a good way to do it. Shadows also owns one of the top 3 backpacks in TF2 (the position moves sometimes), so it is easy to confirm his identity through that.
Having started trading in 2011 and after logging over 12,500 hours in TF2, Shadows has seen a little bit of everything and is glad to share those experiences with those of you who come to the All-trade servers. That said, please don't ask him for free items or offer terrible deals, he didn't get here by being a bad trader and won't support that kind of thing. Keep your trading safe and fun and your chat friendly and uninsulting, and you'll do just fine with him.
Thanks for reading and happy trading!
Canadian Tuurtle, All-Trade
Hi my name is Chris, but most people refer to me as "Tuurtle". Im a proud Canadian through and through who plays outdoor and winter sports, eats poutine, apologizes for just about everything and yes I even say EH! occasionally. I'm a huge gamer, and a general nerd so I always enjoy conversations about anything gaming related. There's a lot more to my personality than most might assume being that im a very emotional, sensitive guy with good intentions a level head and a large mouth (I talk a lot). But thats only because i have a big imagination and lots of dream I want to attain. I struggle with some daily inconveniences, mainly my strong ADHD and horrible grammar/spelling (which you can probably see examples of throughout this bio). I've been on the HG staff for over a year now and dont regret a second of it, this community is one I will never forget joining and hope to be part of for more years to come.
Thanks for reading my Bio, I hope you have a wonderfully productive day. :D
They've been coming on harpoon servers for much longer than that though, looking for a home when the community server, INKTMedias, that they Co-owned was officially shutdown.
They've been playing Team fortress 2 since mid 2014, and started trading not long after that. Now, with over 1500 hours in the game, they've put more money into tf2 than they wanted and have convinced themselves to stop (for now). Sugoni also started enjoying playing CS:GO, and is still just as bad as ever.
An avid creator, making all kinds of media from films to music to poetry to Digital art works, nobody knows where to place them, so they think Harpoon is a good fit for now.
Born in 1998, despite Joe thinking they're only 14 years old, Sugoni still has a lot to experience in life, and is looking forward to what life has to throw at them.
Or is it?
No it's definitely the end.
My name is Reggie and this is my bio. I was born on the 25th of November 2003(or November 24th, 2003 in other countries) in a small country known as South Korea. I started gaming at the age of 5, owning a Nintendo DS with Pokémon Soul Silver. Unfortunately, a friend of mine lost my Soul Silver DS chip. After I got my DS, I bought a lot of other Nintendo games until 2014 when I got my MacBook Air.
In 2014, With the help of my MacBook Air, I stumbled upon a game called Team Fortress 2 by searching for free games. I created my steam account in the summer of 2014 and started playing. Since then, I now have over two thousand hours on Team Fortress 2. While I was still trading in 2016, I needed to find a trade server to trade my cosmetics. That was when I found Harpoon Gaming on the 25th of December 2016. After that, I came on the Harpoon servers daily spending 12 hours on the server trading or being a tryhard sniper. When I figured out HG had a forum, I signed up on the 31st of December in order to interact with more people in the community. After considering a while, he applied as staff on February 3rd, 2017 and got accepted on February 11th, 2017. Since then, I have been moderating the servers after my staff training, getting on the server every day. However, due to school(homework, assignments and tests), you will see me less often on the servers. However, I am mainly active on discord so you can talk to me there.
My favourite food is mayonnaise(please refer to my signature) and I mainly like to post pictures about our god or the GAME MASTA, DAN KUROTO, also referred as SHIN DAN KUROTO and DAN KUROTO SHIN(sometimes his father Dan Masamune too). My favourite television series that I like to watch are Kamen Rider and Super Sentai(mainly Kamen Rider). My favourite Kamen Rider season is mainly Kamen Rider Faiz and some of my other favourites include Kamen Rider Ryuki, Kamen Rider Blade, Kamen Rider Kuuga, Kamen Rider W, Kamen Rider Drive and Kamen Rider Kabuto. For anyone that doesn't know what Kamen Rider is, It's a weekly Tokusatsu superhero television series airing every Sunday. It's similar to Super Sentai which is the original Japanese Power Rangers but Kamen Rider doesn't have a team of Kamen Riders. Instead, there are multiple Kamen Riders that can be on the good side or the bad side. My favourite Sentai series is Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger or Japanese Power Rangers Dino Thunder. I also like to watch Youtube videos, mainly the Tokucast which is my favourite Youtube channel. Their videos are about Tokusatsu such as Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and Ultraman. One of the hosts from the Tokucast is a great friend of mine where we talk about Kamen Rider things. That leads to my name on Discord which is Reggie the Tokucast fan#9671(not sponsored). As for favourite things to do on Team Fortress 2 and the HG servers, I like to play Market Gardener Soldier, Sniper or Spy. Don't expect me to be friendly as I think friendlies are free food for my strange weapons and I will try to kill every person on sight so please don't get mad when I killed you when you were friendly.
Thanks for reading my lengthy bio and hopefully, I can see you on the HG servers or the HG discord. Ciao for now and remember, recieve the blessing of God gratefully(which is DAN KUROTO also known as SHIN DAN KUROTO and DAN KUROTO SHIN). Also don't forget about mayonnaise, the greatest thing on earth exept our God.
