Hello, [no more title]

i'm new here obviously, after I remembered the game existed.

I've been to two other forums. first one was a Homestar Runner forum. I didn't like what they had become. then I joined the Ctrl+alt+del forums, and have been residing there ever since. just like the comic, everything there is hard-core gaming and general PC talk, and I slowly learned and adapted. I got more into video games, first installing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, which I fondly remember from the summer of 2001. I loved that game.then I bought the most recent one, Underground. wasn't very fond of that game. can't remember what I really did for a while...
but then, 2 months ago, I accidentally got addicted to Tomb Raider (not Lara Croft, I might add. to me, she was nothing more than the character.) and that's what actually made me remember LBA. reading about Angel Of Darkness, I suddenly thought "hey, Twinsen was also hunted on grounds of murder!"
alas, I don't actually know where the install disk is. but it's intact.

aaand that's about it. i'm sure you have some overused saying about one user for newcomers, something like "don't feed the Sid" or "make sure DG doesn't steal your pants".

What's happening here on the past weeks doesn't make sense at all... The average "Hi I'm new" threads per month from April 2005 to June 2007 was 1.5, and this month we had 11 (!!) of these.

I made a chart to illustrate that:



A few important notes:
  • Details are since the opening of the Member Announcements forum, i.e. November 2002
  • In December 2002 Elliptic made 2 threads
  • January 2004 includes a thread by "I Am" - Sebz's clone
  • May and June 2004 include Mannesh's sockpuppet
  • September 2004 includes two clones of Obrasilo
  • December 2004 includes a thread by someone from Obrasilo's IP address, who registered just in order to support him after he was banned. Make your own conclusions.
  • March 2005 includes "Chezra", either a sockpuppet or a friend of Ricochet
  • November 2005 includes Saigon the troll
  • April 2007 includes Underdog (i.e. Bunnyrabbot)


[/extremely important stats]



Welcome, btw

Much spare time. Well, let's see how it continues. The month isn't over yet, and August is just ahead. I wonder if it keeps the high rate.

Uhh, morshem... I can't believe that you did that.

That's love right there guys!

RFPT, welcome aboard. I don't think you'll find us like any other forums.

Oh and, don't feed StreGGy. He will steal your pants.

All I know, there was nothing that especially urged me to visit this forum. I was searching for one as I started playing LBA2 again. After a few (a lot of) years.

No doubt it must be thanks to the subliminal message contained within this advert which have put a great deal of unsuspecting people under a spell.

awright then...you guys make graphs.
and it is kind of about 10 years since LBA was released. maybe people are being drawn here because they're sensing a 10 Years game to be released.

I need an avatar...

There's loads of preset ones that are decent after you get about 20 posts or something.

RFPT sounds a bit like RHCP.
"You gotta hump-de-bump you gotta- OH NOES!"

What I'm trying to say is it would be a shame of the new 11 members to not stay here I know myself I've been lurking here without registering since about beginning of 2002.
I wish I joined earlier, sigh

Stay and it'll surprise you how nice it is here. Just don't talk to Ricochet, he's creepy.

And not everyone does graphs here. Myself, I NEVER do graphs. You can clearly see that here:

Don't tell the newbie I'm creepy.

It's probably already too late, you've implanted the horrible image into his mind permenantly!

I will have my revenge, Bot13!

Yes, it is. There are a few other Aussies around here, and I used to live there myself.
