non elitest post, no worries
So what ever happened to all those fellas who used to post here from the begining, Legionaired for example, just disappeared. I've lurked on these forums for a long arse time now [check join date], and it seems a lot of people left the community.

Any other old forum geuisers out there?

    I signed up May 14th, 2003 (hey, it's almost a year ago!). However, I've played NS since at least Beta 1.04 (earliest version still on my computer). I'm not all that important around here though wink.gif .

    going back to check my first post, it's date the day I signed up, and it's a mapping question...so I'm not quite sure how long I was playing before that (started the map at least 4 months after I got NS.

    [edit] I think some people, like MonsE, have gone off and gotten new houses and jobs and stuff...

    I got the actual 1.0 installer on Halloween night (or was it the day after?) but never knew the forums existed until a month or so later (as can be seen by my join date).

    But I do catch your drift - there are precious few who have a 2002 join date nowadays. sad.gif

    The forums turned noobish with the release of 1.0, and they've been gradually making their way up to what they are right now. Anyways, it's nice to be reminded that I'm not alone.

    First Reply: COPY IT UP MARINE01!!!!!!1 geez there's so many nubs around now making the same old suggests ffs

    I was tramping fearlessly down the roads of dod_heatua, carbine in hand, ping hovering in the mid 200's when I overheard two nazi ubermensch (or grenadiers as some call them) discussing space combat. I leapt around the corner, popped off a full clip at both of them, and died without scoring a hit because they'd shot my toe 10 seconds ago. I opened console, typed quit, opened google and found rr.org I think. Read the FAQ, decided on the spot I'd never play anything but marines, found these forums and the rest is history. Except now I am a hardcore skulker tounge.gif

    EDIT

    Hrrm are you sure otto.... I was playing the first week of NS, I played 1.00 I'm 100% sure, but if you didnt find it until 1.02 and then signed up to the forums, then how does that work.....

    Maybe I remembering things wrong, because I was pretty confident I signed up to the forums before playing/downloading :/

    I really wish I made an account sooner, since I started ns two weeks before 1.04 came out (give or take a few days), now I look like a nublet with my join date, lol.

    Alot of old timmers (I am mainly talking about people who where around well before I showed my ugly mug) got an attack of Real Life.

    MonsE I am rather sure did.
    greedo, spyder monky, humbaba and way more names that I can't remember atm.

    some of them are still around.

    Some of them didn't realy like the large comunity thing (meh, to each his own)

    some people got driven out b/c of things like General becoming nearly unreadable (why I now hang out mainly in here, and tech help)

    /me ponders and goes back tolook at names


    and on the subject of first posts...

    well, mine was what hooked me tounge.gif

    I was bumming around looking for a new mod (as all of my old ones had died ;(
    Come on N-S.org, read the stuff in RR.org. Read through tailsfrom the front lines...
    Make a post with a bunch of questions (that had no solid answers anywhere), and the first (or one of the first) people to reply was Flayra, with answers to all of my questions tounge.gif

    twas great

    I've been with NS since before 1.02 I would guess, but never really registered with the forums. I have always been a lurker around here, though.

    dunno if anyone considers me an old timer D:

    my first post was on the old forums that got deleted (I think they did.)
    Ironically, it was an S&I post about having marine "classes," including a medic. Ouch.

    I joined the forums and DL'd the 1.0 dedicated server release, then played that on with a small ammount of others on the servers that were up that fateful day-before-Halloween.

    So yeah...still here.

    confused.gif By the standards that people judge "old timers" around here, I'm like, ancient. I mean, there are people who joined about a month before 1.0 that are "old." I still remember the first day Legionaired, really. Same with JediYoshi and a bunch of other people. But I know there are lots of people still around that were veterans when I joined, so it's all a matter of perspective.

    So many people don't post anymore though... confused.gif

    I didn't know of its exhistence till the March after it came out, in which it was on a PCG CD. I played then for 2 months, wandered onto the Forums, and became the addict I am now.

    I figure alot of the old boys don't post here regularly because these forums are a very different place from the initial year and a half of them being launced. As the forum grew and more moderators were recruited the general consensus was to come down hard on general messing around and so called noobishness as not to end up like the CS or DOD forums. That left no room for "in" jokes and horseplay as such which was part of the charm of belonging to the NS community.

    As the forum grew bigger I think alot of us lost that close community feeling and moved on to other things. As a result most of the vetran posters visit from time to time but never stop long. Thats just the way it is...
