It was Thorir who got me here, :) I sent him so many messages about how to play custom levels on a Norwegian site so he told me i should go here. :) I don't regret a day i did, :)

And new TR related themes would be awesome, :) Along with longer signature text ability + font editing! :tmb:

Well let me tell you about the time I joined the forums. Ahem:


I was bored as hell. The first thread I walked into was one pertaining to swan-diving off the waterful in Temple of Xian. Not only did I steer off topic but I kept spamming the thread without a single comment from the mods. Oops?:tea:

Hmmm, don't really remember very well, probably via Google, because I noticed that TR Legend forum was the most popular english/International forum on the net before its release (Beg 2006) , and so, I have automatically decided to join :D

Justin, just make sure you make more ads through sites and everything will be okay, I also predict newcomers right before Underworld's release :D :tmb:

Suggestion
PLEASE, Justin, can you introduce a theme to TRF, the one already created by JamieLover (I guess you know it)? TRF is the biggest forum and I think it deserves a nice presentation to sustain its image. In case you're worried about bandwidth, JamieLover said that his theme will not have any impact on bandwidth coz of some coding thing (I can't explain, I'm not that good in coding) :)

By the way Justin, I found the vBulletin skin/theme I was talking about and the explanation to why it wouldn't affect bandwidth: Clicky (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=2843226&postcount=4)!

A poll would also be a great way to collectively decide on this subject :)

Hooray for TR/TR level - inspired forum themes! I bet an India-inspired one would look totally gorgeous.

I was browsing Tomb Raider Chronicles, and I often found myself eying the "Forums" section. I don't know why exactly, but I was curious what kind of stuff people were talking about there. So, I finally checked it out, and I read a lot of interesting posts. Plus, the members were humorous, friendly, and active. So after a few days spying on TRF, I finally decided to become a member. :) And I'm glad I did. :D

About suggestions... hmmm...
Like others said, more themes perhaps? :wve:

There could even be a design mock-up competition - the winning designs would be coded into real themes. Each design would include a colour scheme, logo, and possibly fonts, smileys, buttons, and section headers.

A suggestion/idea: What if we do a "time capsule"? A thread where we say things like how TRF was this days, who the active members were, how the TR franchise status was and shiz like that and gets closed, so it gets re-opened and bumped in IDK, 2012 (or 2010, less ambitious).


It would be a nice project for all us to do :)

I think I followed a link here from some other site and decided to join :D

I like the forum layout and color scheme as it is (very clean and easy to read) :D My only suggestion is to have a larger character limit for signatures (maybe double the current limit?). If the forums do get new skins, I hope that the current default remains as an option :)

So.. who here actually has a life? :p

I just joined this site out of pure boredom, but soon got addicted to it because of the friendly atmosphere. Has to be the best forum I've been to, and I've even met few very interesting personalities here who now have become either close friends, or a real pain in the arse. But that's what makes this place exciting, eh?

The best thing about this forum? I found my fiance here.

I joined this forum shortly before my sixteenth birthday, more accurately, it was one week before.

I was looking for information about the demo for Tomb Raider Legend.

The forum seems to be a sort of constant though, a lot of other things in my life have changed, and I'd like to think I've matured significantly, but the forum is here when I want it. :)

Can't really think of any stories though.

Features... well I'd like to see a working calendar which is individual for each user, so we can put our own important events onto the calendar, thus helping us remember them. :p

I found this site on http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/

Originally I wanted another site to find TR Cutscenes, since I already found some for Anniversary on http://www.tombraideranniversary.com/ - I found those ones last August, found them all on http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/ last October\November. Also seeing the button Forums on that site as well. I clicked onto it and boom, some colours and graphics appeared, to form this site :)

I signed up last December, and only posted one or two posts back then I think? Didn't use it properly till May this year ;)

OMg yes! PLEASE!!! :) JamieLovers theme is FANTASTIC!

I joined up here because I felt lonely that none of my friends loved TR as much as I did and it made me sad :( so I decided to try and make friends that wouldn't think I'm a tombgeek and so far this place is perfect :)

Well I used to visit tombraiderchronicles.com quite often but I didn't saw the forums until I googled a question about future tomb raider games and that's when I saw it, then I used to browse the forums quite a lot, and in June I registered.

Ok a suggestion, other than themes maybe... write more and more trwiki pages so I can start making my personal tr book with the help of trwiki:D

02-09-08, 11:22
I found out about TRF because of my obsession for Legend.It was before I had the full game.I played the demo and I wanted to see more screenshots from it,so I googled it,and it sent me to TRF a few times....each time there weren't any screens,so when TRF came up in google,I used to shout at the screen 'I don't want forums!!!':vlol:
But then I found a thread by Marco Catena with screens and after that I started to look around,and then I joined in September.:D

PLEASE, Justin, can you introduce a theme to TRF, the one already created by JamieLover (I guess you know it)?

OMg yes! PLEASE!!! :) JamieLovers theme is FANTASTIC!

My name is actually jamieoliver22, but thanks :p (you even quoted my post and didn't notice my username).

Anyway, I am still working on making that theme suitable for the forums (I have forgot about it actually, I have been busy lately and loosing the original PSD didn't help) and I have already spoken to Justin about it - so just wait and see what (if anything) happens :p

I think you guys should give us Members more features.

Smileys in signatures
Banners in signatures
Gif's in signatures

Tomb Raider and different themes for TRF.

Photo and Video.

If members made any Tomb Raider movies or photo edits instead of making another forum lets just have a "Video & Photo Viewer".

No more having to go to YouTube for videos, instead we can have them on TRF.

As far as photo viewers go I guess you could let members have "Albums".

Let Members Change Their Avatars Whenever They Want

EXCEPT!

The mods have to approve them, so the Member uploads an Avatar and they get a message saying "Your avatar will change when a Moderator approves it"

If the avy is too big they get an "error" message.

If it is against the rules it will not be uploaded and the member will receive a message saying "Your avatar was declined by a Moderator for explicit content."

I've had my posts disappear quite often, no notice from anyone about it. But as you know I'm not used to replying to more than one person in one post, so the new rule or whatever it is takes getting used to, especially since I often go quite awhile before I read a whole thread. TRF isn't the only thing I'm doing.

I just found out the other day that the multiquote thing works on my cell phone. So it shouldn't be an issue, but I've walked away from a few hot debates because my replies were deleted.

as for me, I found this forum when I was playing AOD and I ran into some technical issues. I did a search on google for the issue that I was having, found it in the TRF archives. Then I decided to check out the actual forums by shortening the URL down to just www.tombraiderforums.com. And that people is the story of how the great spikejones found TRF!! :D

somethings not right here..

post number 3,000,000 would be this one (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=3000000) would it not?

@titanium, i tried that too, but got a different result since so many people are posting simultaneously. it'd theoretically have to be done at a time when you are the only one logged (hence no possible other activity) and look at the current post count, make a new one - look at its post number, and subtract the excess over 3 Mil from that post count from your posts number. That will extrapolate the "proper" 3 millionth post.

but something must be bugged out with the post counter cause if you look at the current post number at the botttom of the forum index and compare to the number of THIS post, things just don't match up.

Titanium
05-09-08, 21:59
Nope the 25000 odd posts were deleted

I figured out via taking the complete amount of posts on forum, then I took the newest post number, then I had to figure out the deleted posts amount. So I took away the amount of posts over 3 million from the newest post number, resulting in me being given the 3 millionth post that has not been deleted.

And I refreshed both pages at the same time to collect the total posts and newest post, checked they were by the same person in the same thread, so its right. :) (hopefully. :p)

oh well, that does not change the fact that the posts were made so in that case, I give the true honor to Heckler. The one Drone made is kinda melodramatic even though it sent the page index counter to the 3 million mark. The true 3 millionth post was made last month on the 25th by Heckler.

and so what happens when some older posts get deleted again? wouldn't that just revoke Drone's accomplishment since the math wont work anymore? Food for thought.

3 million posts HAD been made, whether they were junk or not. And just happens that the 3 millionth one is still around so don't you think we owe it to Heckler to recognize that?

Congrats Drone too for setting the index counter to 3 mil!

all admin has to do is check the logs in admin panel, countback 287 posts and that will say who posted the 3millionth post TODAY, they should be credited imo

you don't include deleted posts as they nolonger exist, hence the word deleted :D so no i won't give credit to someone who may not deserve the honor :D

Keep them coming, TRF :tmb:

Justin did you ever think it would be this successful? :D

When you started, you thought it would come so far? :)

You said practically the same thing as me. :D
TRF forever. :cool:

I found the forums and trchronicles.com when the first tomb raider movie was being filmed and so i was making researches about it and so found the forum...
so i used to visit it as a guest...
later on, before the release of TRL, i joined this awsome community...

I have a nice idea for TRF :)

Since a lot of people make spelin misaks, and for some strange reason that spell program which was and can't seem to find it anymore linked on these posts. Never worked on my laptop. So I have an idea of making words red squiggly underlined for spelling mistakes, and green squiggly underlined for grammer! As you type on here ;)

Like Microsoft Office Word... ;)

I hope this doesn't dramatically raise the costs for TRF!

I think we need a new logo challenge in light of Underworld coming out. Something more updated with the new model, just to be more accurate. :D

I use Mozilla (& Chrome :whi:), they have the auto spelling mistake indicators :p

Congratulations TRF! Waiting for the big 5 million! :tmb: :yah: :gki: :D :hug:

Mozilla has a spelling corrector?

Mine doesn't :confused: I suppose it's an add-on?

I'm a huge fan of Aod and even before it was launched I went to TRChronicles so frequently (back then it was all brown-ish and have Lara's face wearing her round orange sunglasses as the site background). I also downloaded TR fmvs and was delighted that the site has loads of media from tr4, tr1, you get the picture. :D

So I happen to saw a link there to trforums. I was skeptical at first to joining internet forum sites as they were U.G.L.Y..(before this I went to Gamespot forums,etc) the people usually converse in language I can't even concieve of.

But then I read on the forums and the people can actually communicate with proper English ("This is a first"..:eek: I thought to myself). And the community have interesting conversation too actually. So I roam about for a couple of days and finally I decided that I want to become a member. :D

Unfortunately, I can't remember anymore, how I got to these forums. All I can say is, that it's been a wild ride now and then, but it's still worth coming here to enjoy a few chats with friends I found here!

So, YAY TRF!
