Just wanted to make this topic because I heard members talking in the video game section about how great this place is compared to others online. I only go here and a skincare one because of the fun/respectful members. Many others are filled with people who just like to troll others. I used to visit a few other forums for years until I decided I didnít enjoy going to those places at all anymore. Just got trolled and those members had no respect. Sometime members here can get a little out of hand but itís natural and this place is still great. I think itíd be great if we show appreciation for the Tomb Raider Forums! :)

I think in total, (in desperation to escape the looming threat
of exams) , I joined a total of five new forums this year, on top
of all my existing old ones.

Some were awful: unfriendly, unmannerly, childish, with no respect for the opinions of others.

But this is the only forum I've kept up so far.....:whi:

I am active on 2 forums. This and a MGS one. While this certainly escels at activeness, friendly members and avoidance of conflict, my ownly criticism is that there are too many members, and too much off-topicness. However, the atmosphere is always pleasant, and this will always be a great forum.

17-12-07, 11:51
I'll be honest, I'm only active on this forum, because I'm able to say what I think without having 5000 people jump down my throat for it straight away! Good stuff.

Andariel
17-12-07, 11:51
Plus I think most of us have an un-dieing love for Tomb Raider/Lara Croft that others just donít understand. Iíve been playing the games since 1996 when I was little. Crazy. :D

Earthcane
17-12-07, 11:51
If I have any complaint to make about the forum itself, it would be the fact that
too many really good threads seem to get lost easily in the sheer volume of threads
that emerge, and then are forgotten about.

yes, i was very surprised of the warmness of this forum. at others i just find fights and cold atmosphere. i was afraid to join this one though, because i cant take that tight atmosphere of fighting.... anyway, now im addicted to TRF, i just must come here every day :hug:

I never get the hang of other forums. Only this. Everytime I join other forums I found it so hard and eveybody call me noob etc..
But here all members show respect to other people. I often have arguments with other members. But I still respect them.:tmb::D

I love TRF. I only come here & to the Sanitarium (home to all KTEB-ers), this is one place where I truly feel like there are no boundaries between nations...I really love that we are all united by our love for TR, lara & that nationality & country hardly counts, its so fun to talk to people from all over the world about so many things. i like the rules here because it helps us become good forumers, & makes this place friendly & very comfortable...at university i'd drop by here everyday just to feel at home (since im not home sniffles hahha, plus no one at my uni plays TR dang :p)...so i'm glad i came here, i'm glad i met all of you, & i hope i won't ever have to leave unless i really have to.

what a sentimental moment *passes tissue around* :D

Sani: The girls over there are nice, crazy; but nice. Perverse, but respectful and mature. :)

Final Fantasy 4ever: It has nothing to do with FF whatsoever, it's a very fun place that some cool people from over here founded. It's a nice place to spam chat and be immature with each other. :D

But, it is one of the best ;)

17-12-07, 17:38
It gets a bit mad during the media campaigns from Eidos but aside from that, its a nice place to find out and discuss all things TR and all things general with decent people. :tmb:
An all round good place.

17-12-07, 17:40
I've only been an active member on this forum and thesims2.com and to be honest, this one is by far the best. Over there, the only way people helped me was if I offered tons of beneficial ratings:rolleyes:. With a few exceptions, of course. Some people even started threads just to ask for "benes".:pi:
In conclusion, TRF is the best because here you can find the nicest people on the internet and... Fast loading times.:D

I [personally find the Latest Purchass thread very entertaining.
Mainly because I love buying stuff, lol :D

Melonie Tomb Raider
17-12-07, 18:49
I don't take sides either. I think Kurtis is really cool, but that doesn't make a a KTEBer... does it? O.o

Earthcane
17-12-07, 18:52
Yeah, Kurtis is cool and all, it's just the heavily edited finished product
of AOD didnt give him enough of a chance to shine.

I love his foresight ability, and he rocked in the Sanatorium levels :tmb:

Forums create impersonal relationships, which can easily sometimes lead to rudeness between the members, but that is natural and easy to overcome most of the times. I like this forum, too. People are really friendy here, the mods are careful and it is safe. Keep up the good work.

Still, fun and nice people in all.

:D

18-12-07, 01:05
This is my first forum since I started. I went to other forums but they're not as convenient as here. Like other people said, the loading time is fast, the members responds is faster (especially when there's new media like TRAE or TRU :D, it's crazy!) and this place is very tidy. Some forums are pack loads with members signatures and pictures on them that I got dizzy reading them over and over again.

And people here just warm and friendly. :hug: My only complaint is that if only we can have much bigger capacity for avatar to make it animate :p

18-12-07, 01:10
I agree also, this is definitely by far one of the most accepting and friendly forums out there. I only really go to one other Nip/Tuck one and this one now. But this is also the forum I've been a regular to for the longest out of any forum I've ever visited.

18-12-07, 01:56
Yeah, I love the huge age range. Other forums I've been too are clogged up
with either veterans who thin they know it all, or immmature squabblers.

TRF has the recipe for a perfect forum, IMO.

True, observable, that. Otherwise, this place is G-R-E-A-T. I wonder how this place ranks as one of the most active game forums worldwide. I mean, really. I think this place is pretty alive.

21-12-07, 12:52
I love these forums seriously...it's really great to be able to talk about TR to other fans who are lovely & polite...i totally respect the way Justin & other mods etc run this place, its applaudable, keeps things smooth, i won't worry about being snubbed on this forum or anything :p

such a touching moment...:hug:

Indeed, this forum has without a doubt the best community I've seen in a forum. Has anyone ever heard of AlbinoBlackSheep? Their community = http://209.85.12.227/11855/140/emo/thumbs_down.GIF. So many emo's there who want other members to die. :rolleyes:

Here though, I never get that. And I'm very glad to be able to say whatever is on my mind and know that people here trust each other enough not to gossip. :)

Capt. Murphy
21-12-07, 15:48
IMO this is about the most spammy place I've ever been. With the large number of post game topics... All the ones that are active today... I wonder how many more clones of those topics are burried through layers and layers of months and years of past forum pages?

I should, just for fun, compile a list someday, then link all the similar topics in one of the current topics that are exactly like the others. It'll be awesome!

Oh. And there is talk of how nice and friendly people are. Let's just say, in the past I've been like a grain of sand in the Kentucky Jelly.

Kentucky Jelly. H**L Yeah!

Say. Where'n the heck is the "I'm Straight" emoticon? Was it eaten by the twink? Yeah. That should be the other emoticon. A short twinkie guy with it's eyes squinting and tongue hanging out, with cream oozing out of it's top while it ogles a picture of a naked guys butt, then just say the pic is a PSA on venerial diseases and then that makes it okay to post it in the forums.

Yeah... I went there.

The emoticon for me would be a guy holding a sign up saying "I'm Mean." >:-)
