2 - 3 months.
I was cautious about joining because i only played TR 1, 2, parts of 3, parts of chronicles, and Legend and Anniversary, and i thought i would have looked like a complete idiot if i joined and posted something :p

But i didnt have to worry, everybody here was nice :hug:

A few days and then I thought 'What the hell, join them instead of lurking in the shadows.'

Can't remember but not much I'd wager. I joined when I learned there was going to be a new TR game developed by Crystal Dynamics. Had to give it the benefit of the doubt after being disappointed twice by the series (TR3 and Chronicles, hadn't played AOD, in part, because of how I heard it sucked).

Oh and thanks for answering my joke question. I knew it! :p

I think i joined straight away to ask a pointless question lol :d

About a week I'd say, but its been a while so... can't be sure.

When I saw these forums for the first time, I registered right away, started posting and wondered why nobody seemed to read my posts. That was back in November last year. Of course I was just one of those "2 posts/no avatar"-people back then who disappeared after a few days. ;)

In January I returned. I opened my first controversial thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=116143) :whi:, introduced myself properly (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=116185) and tried to make everyone laugh (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=116454).

...and now I don't want to leave here ever again. :hug:

i accidentally found TRF, and at the first minute i was browsing it, i decided to register ;)

Anajrob
23-05-08, 18:59
six months I think ... or a year lol :D

patriots88888
23-05-08, 19:00
About 3 days of steady lurking. Then i decided it was only proper of me to introduce myself and proclaim my presence. How could i not? TRF is (add appropriate superlative). ;)

I found out this place existed about couple of days before joining in. :)

I don't remember, I think it was 2 months...

23-05-08, 19:21
That'd be a few years or so. :)

23-05-08, 19:25
About three months...because they had not replied to me about my account, because of something.

23-05-08, 19:31
I just saw the title of the sites, number of posts, categories and I knew I must be a part of it.

Lenochka
23-05-08, 19:38
I joined the same day I found out this place existed. :)

23-05-08, 19:43
about as long as it took for me to have something to say. so like 5 minutes. :) like mcgloomy, i went through the whole noone-reading-my-n00b-posts thing which was frustrating. but people were so nice (much nicer than they are now actually, and people here now are NICE...so if you can imagine that) that i decided to just stick with it. and here i am.

some members have much better luck right off the bat. for instance Elysia's so charming & delightful that people were responding to her the first day. and i also like the way Verdilet bust in: with like ten threads asking every question that had been burning in her (his?) mind. it cracked me up. sort of like, if she didn't find out all these answers right freaking now she was gonna burst. :)

Probably a week...don't really remember exactly.

23-05-08, 20:05
I joined these forums as soon as I discovered them well over 2 years ago. However, I didn't start using these forums regularly until Legend came out. :wve:

A couple of minutes. I'd been visiting TRC regularly, stumbled onto the forum and thought I'd join.

A year or sooo.. :o

23-05-08, 20:43
I just joined straightaway cos somebody on another forum said they were on here so I came and registered before looking at everything.

Natey168
23-05-08, 20:44
I didn't browse before I joined. :p

Melonie Tomb Raider
23-05-08, 20:44
About 2-3 seconds. Somewhere around there. :p

Though I was a frequent TRC visitor for probably about a month or so before joining. I didn't notice the forum 'till later, I was a noob.

I'm pretty sure back then, the background for the site was from either TR4 or TRC, I can't remember which, but I recall it being a major closeup of Lara's face with her sunglasses.

I realize I will be murdered when I tell you this, but since it first opened, then I joined in 05.

I remember when I first came, Tomb Raider Chronicles (the website) was called The Last Revelation Online Beta (thus explaining tlr online stands for The Last Revelation Online)

So yes, I was on here for a very, very, very, very long time before I joined.

23-05-08, 22:44
Maybe two days. I was worried I wouldn’t really have anything worth contributing as I only ever played legend and anniversary so far. i'm still not sure i'm contributing anything but i really haven't even been here a week yet. :o

Twilight
23-05-08, 22:46

I became a member straightaway the minute I saw the forums name :)

I guess for several days.

Shrantellatessa
24-05-08, 05:28
Not too long, but I waited long before becoming an active member; which was mainly due to United Colors of Lara Croft, Xmas 2007 Edition :)

24-05-08, 05:36
first time I came here I joined.. I needed tech support with AOD!
I actually found the forum archives through a google search, then cut the URL down to get here. TBH, I never knew TRC existed until a couple of months of browsing the forums! I still don't go there much since I'm not a Tomb Raider freak (just a casual gamer), but I enjoy being able to come here and chat about this and that, read up on EscondeR's tech knowledge, and lend a hand where I can.

MAST
24-05-08, 07:09
Ehm , 1 day I guess. I found it via TRC.com and I found that I have to join the business :D because I was a big fan.

About 8 months

A few months. At that time thinking this site would be crap, wrong I was.

Quasimodo
24-05-08, 10:24
A few years, I think? I have hazy memories of using walkthroughs from here for TRIV and Chronicles. I joined a while after I finished Legend.

Alex Fly
24-05-08, 10:26
One year I think...

cammy.
24-05-08, 10:33
Quite a while lol. I actually used to come on here years ago and then I joined but I never made any posts and stopped coming on so eventually my account got deleted, and then before I joined the second time I was coming on for a year or so.

Legend of Lara
24-05-08, 10:43
A few months. I joined when I bought TRL.

jamieoliver22
24-05-08, 10:44
I don't know how long, it was years ago, but I don't think it was for long.

And here is my Introduction thread, how embarrassing: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=53238 - My spelling was awful.

Draco
24-05-08, 11:13
I've never been good at lurking, so I probably registered within 5 minutes of finding TRF.

CerebralAssassin
24-05-08, 12:06
I joined the same day I found it :)

Ikas90
24-05-08, 12:34
No less than a day.

24-05-08, 12:41
I didn't wait even one min.

trXD
24-05-08, 12:42

pemides
24-05-08, 12:43

I hardly browse any foruns as a guest

petujaymz
24-05-08, 14:30
I dunno; about a week.

I was looking for info on TRL.

:wve:

Kerrigan
24-05-08, 18:34
Don't know for sure but not for long.A few days I guess.I didn't intend to join at first, but while reading stuff on the forum I began to feel like posting.

Inkheart
24-05-08, 18:37
I stumbled across the site several times over a few months, then decided to join because I needed help from the wonderful Level Editor community.

TR93
24-05-08, 19:10
About a year. I always looked at it to check up on the news on TR game and check what's going on in the tomb raider world but to start with was too scared to join. I was afraid that
1. People at school would make fun of me and
2. afraid that I might say or do something wrong!

Now I fear nothing because everyone here is awesome and I can be on here for hours without getting bored!!!
:D
