View Full Version : your origin...

Well I was wondering where every one came from, 'forumly' speaking. So where did you guys post before you came to the Swamp, or if you are a native swampie, say so.

Also to make this funnier, if you still have it, you could post your first avatar and firts post.

here i go:


this isn't my first one, but i think it's my 2nd (try selecting it with your cursor) my fist one was one of Kermit if remember correctly.

i first posted in the 'I've seen Episode II' forum and posted there for a while, then i stopped posting for about 5-6 months before i returned. It was the a link to the first 'swamp sig/av competition' in someones sig that made me first visit the swamp. And there I am...

my first post:
Here's what i think's gonna happen with mace windu in ep3 :

he's gonna get his ass kicked, either by bobba fett (windu killed his father remenber -- sweet revenge) or by vador who'll start to wipe the jedi from the galaxy.

and the deal about the purple saber is only, like it's been said a couple of time already, because samuel l. jackson wanted to stand out.

this is my story... what's yours?

My first avatar was....oh wait, I'm still using my first avatar.

I'm a native. Can't find my first post... is there a way to find it?

Just a Sam Fisher head was my first avatar.

My first avatar was the custom one on LF, the old ben one.

My first post was something about the Jedi Power Battle game on PS. It was over in the Jediknight.net forums, but the forums got erased because, to quote Rhett, "tey was da debbil."

I can see why, too. Anyway, I eventually moved into the cantina over on JK.net, and stayed there.

My first av? Gawd, I don't remember it. It was probably an Evangelion avatar. I first used it when the forums merged.

As for my first post, I think that's safely lost in the bowels of XWA. I've been here since '99, and can barely remember posts from 5000 ago, much less my very first one.

I am Insatiable Panda, as originally described as:

The founder and creator of The Panda Brigade, Insatiable is just a guy having fun in the face of disaster. Making jokes in front of extremely skilled adversaries and giving Boba Fett the finger.He is the master of the Mugen Insatiaba style of lightsaber combat. He is determined and like a panda...is very tenacious and stubborn. Yoda once said to him," Judge me by my size do you? Stump a mudhole in you i will". Insatiable responded by biting Yoda in the knee. They never spoke again.

After touring around many JKII duel servers, I settled down and joined a few forums to spread the word. I spent most of my time on the Invisible Man boards (Sanctuary, as I like to call it because of the lack of moderators, spammers, or mean people) before I came here. My avatar has always been the same and I'm damn proud to be an American. I also enjoy the band, American Hi-Fi.

In closing: WOOOOO-HOOOOO!!!

i first came to the jediknightii general editing forums but found rather fast my way to the swamp.

first post:reinstall
when u want to go to lower version (=> 1.04 to 1.03), the only u can do is uninstall jk2, then install it and patch it to 1.03.

there is nothing else u can do, r u can try patchcommander but i dont know if that works.

Well, before I came here i used to hang out at the Jedi Council (http://boards.theforce.net/) boards over at TFN. I still post there, but not as much. I love the swamp now! :rolleyes:

My first av was the green Imperial logo, and I my first post was :

Hey folks,
Is there a console command for disabling sabers so you can have guns-only matches in MP?
Obviously you can pre-arrange a guns-only fight with mates, but if there are bots in the game they automatically whip the sabers out.
Just wondered if there was a quick way of doing this?
Cheers, B.

Not very exciting I know, but hey. ;)

05-25-2003, 07:54 PM
Well, I started off in the Skinning section of JKII (when it was still around lol) and made my first thread, "Guide to SP and MP skin Conversion". If you go to General Editing, you'll see it's still stickied at the top of the forum ^^ lol

After a while, I moved to the Swamp and became a regular Swampie. I was a little scared at first, since everything moved so fast, compared to the one-post-a-week status of the Skinning section:D

Here's my first proper custom made avatar:


Yep, made back in the day when sunglasses were the now ^_^ Since then I've made hundreds of avatars and sig pics, and earned the honour of becoming friends with you fine people:)Long live the Skinning section!...err, I mean the Swamp!...



05-25-2003, 08:02 PM
This is/was my first avatar (hey, I like it!).

My first post was something along the lines of "(this is my IP), JK game, 8 players max, t1 connection!"

That was back before the IP boards... IIRC

I hail from Iowa, but I'm originally from Boston. ; )

05-25-2003, 08:10 PM
Back when they Had The Stradegy Shack forum. ;)

I can't get my own demos..... :monkey4: :(


First av was:

I first came to LF after hearing about the release of JK 2. I registered, but didn't post much . After a while, episode 2 came out, and I needed to talk to people about it, being the Star Wars freak I am. That was how I found the Episode 2 forums, where I dwelled for 2 or 3 months. After a while I ventured outwards, and found my way to the Swamp.


^ My first custom av....... I'm a BIG Kids in the Hall fan......

My first avatar was this:


05-25-2003, 08:20 PM
Well I started posting at the JK2 forums, cause I had just played the game and I loved it :)

*looks for first post*

Darn, can't find it, I believe I can only search for the ones I made after I got my account back (didn't know my pass anymore when I came back to post here when the JA news was all around the internet :)) :( Too bad :(

Oh and my avatar was:

My origin is in the RogueSquadron.Net Forums, now known as Aresen. However back then I wasn't known as Lynk Former, I was Corran Horn, and I can still access my old account today :p ehehehe, my first post was somethin like "so what the hell's goin on 'round here?" XD

05-26-2003, 10:41 PM

I still luv him.

I started in the place known as the valley - I was pretty big into the balance issues of the patches and how idiotic assfighters were :p

I started out over at jk.net. I have no clue what my first post was and I don't really remember what my first avatar was. I got my yoda about a week after we got the av feature.

05-27-2003, 12:54 AM

I believe that was my first avatar. I don't keep track of 'em. Don't remember my 1st post here either, though it was something had to do with poetry.

Where I hailed from,
the dark side of the moon when I first made my way here! (http://www.jedi-outcast.com) I flamed pretty bad there about being undefeatable in JO on my first post there, then the backlash started. I was crazy over there!

Boy, those were the days .......of thunder. :p

05-27-2003, 05:30 AM
Well not that anyone cares but I came from the Ep II forums. I joined a little after JO came out just out of curiousity from seeing that Stormtrooper that told me that he needed me from the Jediknightii.net website.

My first Avatar was the Holo projection from Ep I of Darth Maul.

My first post is lost and I could not find it cause I just performed the search and I know that it wasn't about the Price of the Ep II DVD. It was about some arguement that Et and Motionman were talking about and then I posted with some Eu stuff.
Anyways here is the first post that the search came up with.

How much is the DVD? It can't be that much. I mean DVD's are usually in two price ranges. There are you're regular DVD's that usually cost around 16-20 Dollars. Then there are you're DVD's that were better that include more stuff and are two disk which go for around 20-25 Dollars. DVD'S are just like that. I usually pay around 16-20 Dollars. How much do you guys pay for DVD'S? Oh and whoever said go to Wal-mart I hate Wal-mart and Boycott the place. They suck Best Buy is way better! Best Buy is cheaper and they always have what you're looking for Thats my two-cents!

I remember posting with the rest of the Ep II people like ET, Motionman, Jedi Monk, Padamine, Sivy B, Ep 2 Ani, Leemu, leXX, and Agent Smith. Then I overheard leXX talk about spending too much time at the Swamp so I decided to check it out. Then I migrated from Ep II to the Swamp and then to GB, and finally to KOTOR.

I'm a native Aresenian. [RSN for those that know nothing]

My first post was asking if there was a code or way to fly anything but the speeder in the speeder levels in rogue squadron.

My first avatar was a visorless helmet made by LuKa_YJK before the merge.

05-27-2003, 11:33 AM
Heh. Still using my first avatar :) But hoping to get one of a Sarlacc soon... My first post was just a few days ago in the clans fourm.

Rogue Squadron.net for those of you who are extremely stupid. :p

Hey, some of you other people who joined in July 2002, check and see if you posted in Jedi2k2's forgivness thread. That was my first post in the Swamp. :p

05-27-2003, 02:10 PM
Ah, it's nice to be able to drop in from time to time.

As for my first ever post, I believe it was in the I've Seen Episode II forum, predicting what would happen in the next prequel. Soon, however, I was consumed by taking over the forums and creating The Brotherhood of the Sith, which rose to a grand member total of... three. Yet, you cannot blame anyone for trying their hand at world domination now, can you? My avatar has remained unchanged from day one.

Well, it's time for me to leave again, although I never really stay away for long. Just remember, good people of the LucasForums...

I am always watching.

05-27-2003, 02:30 PM
I started out in the Multiplayer Strategy forum and my first post was asking how to wall walk as far as I can remember. I hung around with Cjais, Druid, Skinwalker, Jah Warrior, Greedo626 and Livingsacrifice up to about 500 posts, paying frequent visits to the Episode 2 forum where I hung out with ET Warrior, Jedi Monk, Motionman, Agent Smith, Ratmjedi, SivyB, Padanime and crew. I stumbled my way into the swamp one day in an avatar competition thread lol.

My first proper custom avatar was made for me by the wonderfully talented NerfYoda who we havn't seen for ages unfortunately ...


05-27-2003, 02:40 PM
my first post was in Single Player Strategy on how to kill Shadowtroopers. my very first avatar was this one http://www.lucasforums.com/images/avatars/greed_av1.gif

05-27-2003, 02:48 PM
Hehe, Me, Father Toque, and Topsho came from the Clan Forums. I spent most of my time there. Then I came to the Swamp.... and stuff. ^_^
