I originally found TRF when Melonie referred me to here. I then joined 1 year later in order to keep up with the latest TRL information - good times. :p
So how did others here discover this forum?

At first I wasn't a very active member, though!:D:o

Me and my sister set up our Playstation console again in early 2006 after having not played it for ages. I also discovered I still had TR 1-5. After re-playing them and re-experiencing ze joy dat iz TR, I typed "Tomb Raider" into Google, discovered there was a new game coming out, and signed up to the forum. :)

I was following TRChronicles for a couple of years and one day, being bored, I decided to check out the forums. All the talk about Legend seemed interesting, so I joined to share my thoughts.

Exactly the same. I quote this post because I was wondering if there would be a game after TR:AOD, so I kept going to TRC to see possible info, ending seeing info of TR:L, but I only joined later, after the release of TR:A due to my english

I got more active during Anniversary.

After 5 mouths ago when I finished TR Anniversary, I browse the website about next TR and I found tombraiderchronicles.com (actually I know for trc.com for while) and I was reading Karima's interview. When I notice all questions are ask from this forum, so I was curious.
I have read some posts and it was interesting. At next day I was browsing again in forum and I was in.
Not interesting story I know, but it's fun be here.:D I wish I'm join earlier. :/

I was in my ex's appartment, surfing the web while she was out shopping or something. It was around February of 2007, when Lara's birthday was coming around so I felt a little nostalgic and decided to check for TR related information. I heard that TRA was in the works, and I was very curious. I checked this forum for information and conjecture, then joined shortly afterwards.

I was looking for some good spoilers on TRL, and found a lot here. Then a noticed that so many people here were talking to eachother, and having fun. I've read a lot of peoples posts, and as creepy as it sounds, I know a lot about a lot of the people here and they dont even know it! Don't call me a stalker, because I finally did join a while ago...haha

I even noticed that two people met on this forum and they love eachother. I think his name was Micki...idk...:p

I'm not a stalker, really! I is only 16! haha

I used to go on a really good forum, but it went downhill and was closed - so I decided a few months later to go and look for another community, and I searched for a Tomb Raider forum, and here I am :D.

So glad I did so, otherwise I would have not met certain people or done certain things in my life.

I had known about the forums for a while actually. On another forum, when Anniversary was in the works, they had a separate TR Board in the Video Games section. A friend of mine kept posting links to this forum for information, and I always read about it. :) Later when everyone was eagerly anticipating Underworld, I decided to join for the lulz. :p

I forgot the log-in for it but Justin deleted those older accounts. lol. So I found out about Legend back in 2007 a year later and I have been a regular member since then. When I joined in 2007 I also wanted to texture mod at lot but I haven't got around to that.

But I'm enjoying my time here. :)

Originally stumbled onto the forums some time ago while researching a technical problem (TRL doesn't get along too well with my Sound Blaster Extigy). I didn't really pay much attention until I came across the forums earlier this year while looking into the design of some hardware depicted in the first movie (the retractable magazine carrier housed in AJ's Nike backpack -- however vain and impractical, it would be the ultimate accessory for my pair of Beretta Inox pistols). While I didn't find the information I was looking for, I did notice how finely groomed the moderators keep everything here and the general level of respect that everyone seems to show toward one another so I signed up. Of course that was before I realized that I am a decade or more older than most of the folks on here. I don't suppose that matters so much though.
