So how did you get here?
 
this is a poll to see how you got here

Sherack Nhar 06-04-2004 04:03 PM

Third option would be closest to me, but really, the admins of LF put me as a moderator here as a test to see if I was fit to administer a site... Seems I passed the test, but the website failed anyway :D

Clefo 06-04-2004 04:13 PM

First option, I was interested in GB in the before time, the long long ago. Boy do I feel stupid now about that :D

edlib 06-04-2004 11:48 PM

I guess 2 and 3 would fit me... although, I believe I first came here before everything merged,.. but I have never played the game.

darthfergie 06-05-2004 12:12 AM

first one...I came to the site for info at first...only later did I realize there were forums, etc.

Niwid 06-05-2004 01:00 AM

umm, none of the above

Artoo told me about the site and i came in a little into the Crosscountry Bus Trip Story/Epic/Novel/Thing.

WolfmanNCSU 06-08-2004 08:57 AM

I got the game for XMas, and wanted to learn more. So I searched online and found lucas forums. Then started posting elsewhere in the forums.

lukeiamyourdad 06-09-2004 09:38 PM

Somehow, I found my way here. I was on the Galactic Battlegrounds official website and then clicked on fan sites. Clicked on Galactic Battles.com . Then on forums. Then at the on-topic part. Then here after I got bored. Then on to the rest of the LF network.

Treacherous Mercenary 06-09-2004 11:23 PM

You know... I can't really remember how I got here... Even if I tried, I can't remember exactly... I think I somehow stumbled here... I think I started playing GB again and for some reason, I may have been seaching for sites and somehow came across GB.com. :D

DarthMuffin 06-10-2004 08:46 AM

I'd say option 1.

Though the first time I actually posted here was after the huge SWGB vs WC3 threads, where I got completely slaughtered because of an extreme lack of allies... It was like me vs everyone else, but anyway :rolleyes:

Then we had all the AoM and RoN fans comming out (I was clearly overwhelmed by now), so I left until the game was truly dead, and I ended up here :)

And I just realized that...
...I'm actually "older" (forum speaking) than luke and the silent one, and I'm still faaar away from 1000 posts O_o. Guess I haven't been posting a lot!

lukeiamyourdad 06-10-2004 08:42 PM

Well I run around on the LF network posting on several boards, mainly SWK, SWBF and sometimes the JK Senate and here of course. If you've stayed here only it's natural that you don't have a lot of posts.

TheMadDoofer 06-10-2004 08:48 PM

I lurked around on JK.net, I remember a lot of people including Galactic Plumberman. Then I got Gb and decided to come here - it was more friendly and less crazy (I had just passed through aresen).

I did post sometimes on JK, but I just stopped (don't remember why).

As for SWknights, well by the time I got addicted to KotOR, the forums were almost dead, so I spent my time posting at bioware's.

And, IIRC, the topics at battlefront are kind of pointless (we don't have enough info to have real debates yet).

lukeiamyourdad 06-11-2004 04:25 PM

Yeah true about Battlefront. Up to now, we've had two good debates and the posters there aren't what I call mature.

Fishflesh 06-12-2004 11:33 AM

what does mature mean?

To be mature means to be able to think before doing something.

In the case of the forums, there are many people who just start topics with no real reason... just for the heck of it. The best example would be a thread with a subject such as...
"This game's gonna suck"

There's no real point in this... And since we have very few info on Battlefront yet, it's impossible to say if it's gonna be good or bad.

You could also say that someone is not mature if he starts to insult anybody, or he doesn't accept critique on his ideas.

Darth Homer 06-15-2004 04:27 PM

How did I get here?

Well, when a man and a woman Really like one another they give each other a "special hug"....

*sarcastic bastard mode OFF*

Artoo 06-15-2004 11:44 PM

Well, ***** *ahem* ... I mean, Fergie told me about this really nifty game coming out and how there was a little place online were people would talk and ahve a great time and hang out and whatnot making each other laugh, so I decided to check it out.

Anyways, that was like, a long time ago. A super long time ago. And I've still never really left, but it's kind of fun to pretend that I'm not here every once in awhile! :D

Jinni Tsurugi 06-16-2004 12:01 AM

The last option is my choice. I was trying to go to my User CP but my hand got bumped by my bro and clicked here. So... what the heck?

Snafu7 06-16-2004 11:59 AM

I got direction to the GB site after just getting the game, and wound up here.

Young David 06-17-2004 08:35 AM

Question is ... how did I leave?

:p

I was one of the few members of this forum because I was an Age of Empires fan and a Star Wars fan ... and couldn't wait for the game to come out (game is catching dust now)

Dr Edison 007 06-29-2004 03:25 PM

I was looking through the forum list and found another off-topic forum (those seem to call me) so I decided to come in.

Hell, this will probably be the last time I post here.

Natopo 08-07-2004 05:59 PM

I saw the game on LucasArts and did a search somewhere and ended up here. I stayed in on topic for a while but then was tempted to come to off-topic and realized it was a cool place and stayed. Then I left for around two years and I'm back now.

Nairb Notneb 08-11-2004 04:39 PM

I have rebellion (still play it btw) was going to get Forcecommander but other people said it was no good so I listened. Then I got GB and I fell in love!! Then later I got CC and I was in deeper love!! Then my father-in-law passed away (this is over a span of a few years btw) and we moved over 1300 miles to live with my mom-in-law. To get a break from it all I go on line much more often than I ever did before and I have come across this place. I try to go to each room that I am interested in and I just found this one. So I guess you can say that I drove 1300 miles, in about two days to get here. The end.

Revan Solo 01-27-2005 08:41 AM

I was on lucasforums for a while and searched interesting discussions.

Ditto that.

Oh, the joyous memories. Unfortunetly, my install CD for the original died, so now I can't really play it. Oh well...

no1 11-15-2009 08:51 PM

How did I get here?
Did a search in google for Zone and SWGB. Was bored and decided to join and try liven this place up.

HED 11-03-2013 04:46 AM

I was clicking around of LucasForums and somehow stumbled in here.
