Hello, just joined this group. Quite new to steampunk. I live in Suffolk, UK, if there are any people local to me who want to say hello!

Hello - and welcome to all new members who've joined in the last several years.  My name is Mr. Scott Michael (a.k.a. Phineas Von Stitch) - founder of this group.  I do apologize, as always, that I don't make my way over here to the Steampunk Empire website as often as I used too.

I do want to make everyone aware that there is a group page on facebook as well that seems to have a bit more movement and interaction than the page here on Steampunk Empire.  But you won't find it by searching for it.  If you'd like to join, send me a message on Facebook, and also add me as friend there and I can add you into the group:

Good morning, great to join you all. I'm new to the Steampunk World and really enjoying this exciting adventure. I'm loving the varied diversity of interests and topics on the Steampunk Empire and chatting to lots of wonderful people. I'm also going to be attending my first Steampunk event in Doncaster UK on the 22nd and 23rd of June. So if anyone is going, it will be great to meet up there. Have a beautiful day. Kindest regards Captain Constantine
