Um.. OK.. Tho the forum software already has the 1st one - it's visible anytime you hover the mouse over your name in the post listings..

 

According to that, I've been  here since April 28th, 2010...

 

That means I've been on here 3 years, 6 months, 4 weeks and 2 days.. Gotta luv Windows 7's calculator for figuring that out...

 

As to how I got here.. Google. A friend of mine handed me the disks for Sacred 2 and wanted me to find out if it was a good game or not. I had some questions about stuff and did a Google search which brought me here. Wound up signing in and well. the rest, as they say is history.

 

 

Only three year? :o :P

And, how many hundreds of uploads to the Wiki downloads did you help put up?

That put us on the map, I remember a member saying that she'd never seen anything like it...that we were the first game wiki that came with a button that allowed instant satisfaction, and that we were going way out of the spirit of the game, and creating someting that had never been done before, and perhaps should/could have been forbidden...

 

I say more buttons!

 

Thanks Wolfie

only since 2011, over at Sacred 2 International since 2008. Started off playing Sacred (still love that elf) and moved on to 2.


Original system - Apple ][+ 48k, tape interface and RF modulator for TV - 8 colors (2 black), the games had less graphic content but were more fun.

Well, we do have a "member since" date in our profile descriptions...

 

Got myself Sacred 2 in mid July of 2012.

Signed up on 18 Sep 2012 (so over a year now). Been looking around may be a week or two before that, when looking for help on quests and so on, and also to vote the “Temple Guardian should be a PC in Sacred 3” anywhere I can.

Only became an actual active member since half a year ago, when I started moding the Sacred games to my liking, and seeing questions I could answer.

I know you think you understood what you think I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

I don't know. With less than 400 to almost 5000, I think I outrank you as a Lurker ...

Nah you definitely got me there...just the 1st year or so I think I averaged 0.0125 posts per day. If it wasn't for the wiki I'd probably have about 2000 posts, but you still are a better lurker anyways :)

Haha, I think you may be right here :P  But on a more serious note, this is some pretty cool stuff.  I've always wondered how long some of our active members and lurkers have been around for and everyone's story has been pretty interesting! Keep 'em coming I say!  :viking:

I first read this forum in August 2008, shortly before Sacred 2 was released. I officially joined in late September. I've been a member of this amazing community for over 5 years now. :)

I found this forum via the Sacred International Forum, like some of you. I was pretty excited about Sacred 2, and I had a blast playing the game with some of you!

Max, I was hoping you'd post!

yes, I remember when you first came and posted, local member too!

That was an amazing post you made of the contents of Sacred 2 from the box all laid out very nicely and organized.

Thanks for all the work and contributions you 've made to the community, we're counting on at least five more years of love!

 

:)

Woah, is that six year Rob? R u the oldest posting vet on the boards now?

This also kinda came about because one day, just for kix, was going through some of the old Key Largo posts, the oldest forum on the site, and saw the bar thread... I was a bit taken back, and perhaps even scared seeing how fast the years have gone by when I saw that post date.

Yeah, if not for Wiki, you'd have post count in the stratosphere^^

Aegis, your art's always going up, and it's a draw for the community, as well as your love for the second latest Star Trek movie (rawr the sound of the warp pods being ejected!).

Thanks for keeping here with us

2 years ia great!

I know a lot of other friends I have online move from site to site like lemmings, jumping off the proverbial cliff as soon as a new game is released.

For some reason though, we seem to be able to squeeze some value out of this game, with some corollary games running on the side.

Thanks for the posts Wygram, and when I had played Guild Wars 2, always enjoyed the company.

I think this is because these communities care more about what game they are playing rather than the people they are playing with.  I think that's why we always come back to D.a.r.k - the community is epic :D
