Well, I dont think this has been done before, or at least for a while. This is sorta like a nostalgia trip for us forum people. The idea is to go waaaayyyy back to find, read and post in this thread the first post you ever made on the NS.org forums. Here is mine made on Nov 15 2002 in the SandI forum:
I read that you dont want complicated suggestions, so here is a simple one for yah. I noticed that in my time commanding, i could see aliens running up to unsuspecting marines from behind, and by the time i typed a warning the aliens were picking their teeth with my mens' bones. So my very simple suggestion is this. A hotkey, maybe P for panic or something. You press "P" and it sends an alert to all marines selected. Maybe their hud can flash once, or a voice message saying "Heads up" or "INCOMING!" sounds.
Like i said, small, simple, just make the game that little bit easier for all concerned.
Keep up the good work ns team
If you dont know how to find your first post, here's how
Find a post you've made, and click on your name. Then select up the top the option "find all posts by this member". Simply click "last" up the top to go to the end of the list, scroll down to the bottom and that will be the first post you ever made.
Should be quite an interesting memory jog for a lot of us, how we were and how we posted way back at the beginning. I dont think this is a spam thread, but if it is I'm sure you mods know what to do.... I find it quite interesting myself to go around checking out the first post certain famous faces (Marik Steele's first post = pwn) around here made, so I thought I'd get people to bring em out into the open.
So please, post your historic first ever contribution to the greatest forum boards bar none!
