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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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).

Aresen, where sanity is abnormal.
JK.com, where you can wax nostalgic about a great game
GB.com, where people are more normal, but still fun to hang around with

TheMadDoofer on WoW (Bloodscalp server), Call of Duty:UO, Battlefield 2,
JKA, and Republic Commando. If you see me, then shoot me or whatever.

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).

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

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.

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!

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?

Question is ... how did I leave?



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)


He ho to the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
rain may fall and wind may blow
but there still be many miles to go

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain
and the stream that falls from hill to plain
Better than rain or rippling brook
is a mug of beer inside this Took

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.

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.

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.


Go big or go home.

Ditto that.

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