What a great the Year 2007 has been?

Well here at TRF it has been great.

Well Here a few that alot of people can remember that make this year memorable.

#1 - Justin playing TRA
We all went crazy and bombarded him it was so cool but unfair how he got it before us lol!

#2 Elen Leaving!
I cant believe she has gone well its here choice and best of luck in all she does.

#3 - Me getting banned.
Well not everyone knows this but i was banned for making a new thread for "What you currently listening too". Then i was good and made a "General Britney Spears Thread".

#4 - Reviving the Design a CD Cover Competition
Which is popular!

#5 - Getting Excited about TRA

#6 - Seeing TRU Lara! (Amazing)

#7 - New Server

I seriously doubt that alone is reason enough to ban anyone :confused:

Isn't it a rule that people who have been banned is not supposed to write the reasons for ban in a thread?

General events here:
The ongoing guessing game that is the TR:AE media.
Titak's Himalayan Mysteries
Eurovision 2007 - good discussion with our numerous European members on here about the event.
The unveiling of TRU
Elen leaving :(
Questions for Justin :p
New server
My personal events here:


Announcing that TR:Reborn was being putting on hold for two years. Not an easy thing to do but I don't regret it.
Disappointment with TR:A
The Hiroshima thread - I learnt a lot through that one.
Open Chatting during the summer holidays - helped me get to know some members here a lot better
Big Brother 2008 - The show itself was abysmal but I loved talking to the members here about the whole thing. Made it all worthwhile.
The TR:AOD continuation letter - Even though it never gained any responses (I was pretty annoyed about that...), I would like to say thank so much to everyone here who helped with the writing of that letter.
Improving my artwork through the useful feedback you guys have given. :tmb:Looking back, its been a year where the actual gaming/TV has been a tad disappointing (e.g. general events) but the personal element of my time here this year has been something I've found very fulfilling.

The biggest highlight for me is recently, actually, with some of the TRU media. This has been so exciting for me, I simply can't get off the forums, even now while I'm at work. :vlol:

Another thing worth mentioning was the huuuuuge list of questions from us TRF members that Jin Uzuki organized together for Justin. That was a lot of fun.

Moreover, I cannod forget to mention some of the new and wonderful faces we've seen here. We now have over 30,000 members as well, that is pretty climactic in and of itself.

My personal experiences with everyone this year has been pleasant as well. This forum really is full of a lot of great people, and even if we disagree with one another on certain topics, we can still get along really well while setting our differences aside. I've seen this exemplified in this forum more than any other forum I have ever been to. I've made some wonderful friends here that I know I will neevr forget. :D

The saddest thing this year, of course, is Elen's departure. :( I sure hope she comes back sometime.

Earthcane
17-12-07, 18:59
^Um, back on topic people :tmb:

Earthcane's highlights of TR Forums 2007:

Joining for starters :jmp:

Meeting lots of friendly people from all corners of the globe.

The release of Anniversary and my decision not to buy it :mis:

The introduction of ad-fuelled themes :whi:

The General Modding thread: This year, methinks, has seen a burst in creativity in
modding lara and her various outfits.

The hype surrounding Underworld so far, lol! :)

General Chat thread: always a pleasure to visit now and then.

Members Gallery: Same as above. Lots of lovely people on these forums :o

Latest Purchases thread:

I dunno, there's just something about this thread.
Maybe it's just that I like seeing what other people buy for themselves.

Various people's 'Artwork bins' - lovely artworks from such members as Bumio, Quasi,
Amlai, Bloodstorm, Elysia and not forgetting the artistic wonders of ashnar (:hug: X everyone)

That's about it :tmb:

Highlight moments:
Awesome new friends & loved ones. Seriously without them I wouldn't be here as often. They know how to make me feel better and it's always a pleasure to chat with them. Be it that one random dude or that one stunning girl with her awesome pm's. And overally everyone who I keep spamming with here! Should know who they are. Love you.
TRU media. Haven't been this excited in a while!
Just overally having fun here with mates and being the ultimate cam *****. :pNot so great moments:
Elen leaving :(
TRA being not what I expected

You know we love to watch you ***** mick. :hug: :D

For me it must have been:

1. That guessing game where Justin changed the banner every twenty seconds. :D
Remember, at the beginning he wrote some sentence on the front page, and we all went ballistic, thinking it was some kind of conspiracy. While Justin was prolly reading our posts and laughing his ass off. Then we had the question game... Which was really fun. :p

2. OC-ing with cool people while devouring a bucket of Ben and Jerry. :vlol:No further comment. >.>

<.<

3. When TRA was still only in the making and we'd check in every few hours to see if there was new material. That was really exciting, even though I didn't quite like the game in the end.

4. TRU updates Well, it's happening. Even though I'm not expecting much of the game. (I've lost all hope for Tomb Raider games.) It's still fun to get all excited and hyped up about small things like screenies.

No! Dont lose the faith! (Lol :mis::D)

Personally, I think Underworld sees a revival of the series.

Grenade
17-12-07, 19:39
Unfortunately i was. but it was reasonable. :)
I think it was because there was already another thread already in progress so that's why. Personally I think there was no need of you to make that thread. But never mind, what's done can't be changed. :)

I'll type my thoughts soon by editing this post later. :)

It was a great ear for me! I evolved a lot as a person! I learned to be more mature, and more cinfident. My skills evolved too. OH AND I got an awesome graphic tablet! And I managed to be 50 kilos! I lost 5 kilograms this year permanently. I was in 5 countries this year - in italy, germany, austria, romania and hungary :D

BTW I think I was banned too this year... or was it twice last yea...r :pi:

good things:
- Meeting a great friend here who lives in the same city as me. We email in the mornings and msn in the late nights because we’re insomniacs. :p Also having great fun in Diablo II online.
- Tech Support ;)
- TR media

bad things:
- Anniversary, not for me.
- Eleni leaving; very sad.

Hmm, there's been quite some dramatic arguments this year....fun to watch. I ain't naming anyone though. :whi: Nah, too many good things to name, i've really enjoyed this year on TRF, even if there are some old members that i miss. =/

Oh yeah, the worst part of the year was when a certain member (banned now, thank god) tried to convince everyone that WW2 never happened.....sad, really. :rolleyes:

Nope :p.


Pfft, i get it now! Hehe.:p :pi:

Most memorable moment so far...

Me joining up in these forums, and realizing that this site has the friendliest people ever! ;):jmp::hug:

Camera Obscura
18-12-07, 01:26
Remember when we got TRU screenshots? Yep, those were some good times. Then there was the time when Elen left. Does anyone recall those porno threads that popped up and poor Elen had to purge the forums of those spammers and pictures? The new server was fantastic! Justin traveling to Eidos and playing TRA (and possible TRU) before us. Our new moderators. Threads on new songs, movies, and games. "Leave Britney alone!" .2007 was a memorable year and I hope 2008 will be even better here at TRF. :wve:

The server upgrade was a definite plus for me. :tmb:

I was really getting tired of that "Load Balancing" screen during the TRA media frenzy and launch of the official TRA website. :hea:

The diversity of artistic talent is another reason I like to visit here. I love the modding threads and Fan Artwork section. :tmb:

And there were many changes that happened to me,just like the following:
*I became a KTEBer :tmb:
*Had more friends in Open Chat and other threads.
*And of course,this is the thing that I will never forget,I became a spammer :p

Highlights:

NGLE (Next Generation Level Editor) and TREP (Tomb Raider Engine Patcher) allowing for bigger textures and many features like |BINK playback,meshswaps and far more features avaliable (though TREP started in 2005)

My first year on this forum!!

Bad points:

The fighting that isn't caused by myself in the LE forum (i'll stop now ;)) and the constant neediness of the art.

Can you tell i am mainly around on the TRLE forums?

Making some really brilliant friends on here, it's hard to believe that i've only known some of them less than a year, it seems like i've known you for so much longer! It's a pity that in some cases i have to be in another country >_<!
I've also had some feelings for a couple of people on here too.. which was rather weird as i think it's teh first time i've felt.. deeper feelings of that sort for another person. Which was weird first time round.
But basically, the highlight of my year is meeting my friends on here, and to be honest, 2007 sticks out from other years. It's sort of been.. a life changing sort of year (who cares if i sound like an old grandad XD). Thanks all, you know who you are :hug:

25-12-07, 22:09
This year for me on TRF has been pretty quiet because...Well I haven't exactly posted a lot, therefore not many people have gotten to know me etc. Still, I managed to make some amazing friends and for that I am grateful :) I also managed to lose some friends, but I guess that's life...People grow apart.
Overall I think that although some things happened that I do not wish to remember, 2007 has been a decent year and I would like to wish everyone the best of luck for 2008!

26-12-07, 17:34
My highlight of TRF was when we kept getting all the media for TRA and finally it came out. I have soo many of the gamefootage and trailers/diaries on my iPod. I really got into converating certain video formats to mpv so that I could watch them on my video iPod. So I was happy. After TRA, it slowed down a lot for me b/c the game (at least in my opinion) had hardly any good replay value once I got all the secrets and unockables. So I naturally left TRF and got into the resident evil forum for more info on RE5/Umbrella Chronicles.

I recently came back when a friend of mine from the capcomunity boards posted a thread about TRU and some of the known features. I was soooooooo happy that I just had to come back to TRF to see what I missed. And I was not dissappointed. I cant wait for TRU to come out. I want to see what lil' tricks CD has given Miss Croft and what else she's going to explore in this sequel to TRL.:D

Whether this is related or not. The highlights of being here was seeing that there were soooo many people here who shared my love for TR and also that others liked RE too. As a matter of fact, if it wasnt for joining this forum, I wouldve never joined the capcom forum and met my one and only. Thanks, TRF for introducing me to the world of forums and video game message boards. :D.

Unfortunately, I didn't spend a lot of time on TRF this year. However, I don't remember any bad time. I will always remember TRF as the sweetest place on net :hug:

Regarding the members, I have no hard feelings for anyone. As far as I remember, I banned only a couple of times. I guess you know how patient I was as an admin, so you can imagine what might have happened and made me ban the two members.
