My first ever forum ;_;

I signed up to these fine forums at the age of 13, and here I am posting at 22.

The MI boards were my first ever forums I used, just came back here to post something in the Grim Fandango forums and throught I'd pop in to The Harbour for old times sake. I remember being here during the hype for Money Island 4, nearly 9 years ago now, how time flies.

Any regulars from 2000-2001 still about?

Similar story here.

It's really weird to think back to the ridiculous frenzied activity the EscapeMI forums had back then, and it only gets weirder once you realise all that's still there frozen in time Ś including the hundreds of posts you made as a kid.

Ay noobish me, I was an ancient 15 years old when I registered. I feel like I was a lot wittier then.

I'm still here at 23. And yes, this (or rather, escapemi.com's forums before they were merged into this one) were my first ever forums, this place carries a lot of old memories for me, my first post, my first thread, my first moderatorship. Ahh the memories.

Right, I'm offski for another few months, peace.

This is the first forum that I spent over seven years on, if that counts.

Does it count for the ones that wonder off and fall off the grid for months to years at a time just to end up peeking in the doorway once every blue moon or so?

Since we are remembering good times I miss the forums when they were escapemi, back with my old doppelganger username, HTML tags were free to abuse...though I never…almost never did that, and were the Trekkie wars pre or post move?

Hmmm anybody have any forums to declare war on?

The Empire of Aresen (As seen in my sig) are currently at war with the Knights of the Old Republic Ahtonian Empire.

Because Aresen is the only legitimate empire on LucasForums. The Ahtonians are nothing but rebels.

And what are you doing here, Scar?

I've been here since 2001, I would have been 15, maybe 16 when I joined.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

You'd think that the release of new games might bring a few more of us from under our rocks.

There's a lot more activity going on in the Mojo forums if you're looking for discussion about the new game. They're also part of LucasForums so you can join right in if you want.

It's funny how little to no Monkey Island discussion is happening in the Monkey Island forum a day before the release of Monkey Island 5.

Yeah I'm really surprised too. Coming back here one and a half month after the MI5 release, and hardly no discussion... Very sad!

I think that's because Telltalegames got their own MI-forum. And there have been a LOT of activity there.

I'm an oldie too, btw. 12 years when I registered. Haven't posted here since the prime time. Good times.

Edit: Huh, I thought i joined in 2001, but that was wrong. I was 11 years when I joined, then. Whoa, half my life has passed since then.

I was 10 years old when I first joined Lucasforums. Now I'm old enough to drive.. (but I won't do that to the rest of humanity for another few years).
