Meet our competent admin

Who is Joey12?

Joey12 assumed the responsibility as our admin when Tix Mascot became overburdened with online and personal workloads. He is a seasoned website personality, who had his own debate forum for many years and thus well qualified for the assignment.

In addition to having a great sense of humour, plus being a very social and helpful person, Joey12 is also a keen debater with interest in - and an impressive knowledge about - a wide range of subjects.

Joey12 has tried quite a few professions and had many roles at Caterpillar before his retirment. He lives in Illinois with his wife, the dog Emory and the parrot Ricco.

When he is not active on the forum, Joey12 likes to take Emory for a drive. He is concerned about animals, a keen photographer and a great carver of Halloween pumpkins. We are very lucky to have him as our host.

Introducing Ginger

One day, a chestnut filly decided to show up on the Heretix Forum. Strangely enough, she is able to talk, type and do lots of things that other horses can only dream about! Her name is Ginger and she is the forum's undisputed diva! She is supposed to be living on , but she likes to ramble all over . Ginger is sometimes seen in company with the even more elusive black stallion Thunder. If you are lucky, you can catch a glimpse of them and even interact with them. Good luck!

Meet our colourful tech guru

Who is Tix Mascot?

Our self-styled tech guru was born in Volda, Norway, in 1961; and he has studied languages and logistics. Among other things, he has been employed as a sailor, peacekeeper, commercial driver and logistics administrator, both in Norway and other parts of the world, so he is widely travelled. Since 1998, he has lived in Oslo with his better half and fellow forum member Lys. He has no biological children, but a step-son and a step-grandson in Italy that he tries to visit as often as possible. His extensive international family is spread over 10 countries.

In 2014, Tix co-founded the Heretix Forum along with two other people, who since have moved on to other cyber obligations. But on the platform that they set up, a small online community has developed, where amazing people from all over the world engage in interesting debates, exciting games, rewarding contests and lots of fun.

Tix Mascot has gone through a period of serious health issues, but he is now in better shape than ever through a healthier lifestyle and daily physical exercises! So he hopes to land a full-time job in not too long, where he can use his qualifications and accumulate new ones. During his years of forum building, he has studied programming and website management, which also come in handy on his resume.

If you want to find out more about him, a click on his image will take you to the appropriate sub-board.

We support minorities!

Our staff wants to emphasise that we are against all kinds of discrimination. Thus, we support women in their struggle for equal payment, working conditions and career opportunities, religious groups that suffer in the shadow of the major faiths, individuals of a race or colour that feel inferior in the community where they live and those with an orientation other than strictly hetero.

We don't necessarily agree with the arguments and instruments that the members of such minorities use in their battle for better understanding and tolerance, but we recognise their rights to live in peace among the rest of us and to have an opinion that challenges society as we have known it until now. Therefore, we deem harassment against them as dispicable actions.
