I made an "introduction post" when I started playing right after the reset happened, but I guesss it has been moved off of the forum page.

I am one of the original players of TL. I played TL basically when it first came out (or very close to it). I was here when netnexus was basically all about TL and nothing else.

The only person that I know that is even close to how old I am (in terms of length of TL play) is ShadyKnight, although I believe I am before his time as well (since the first time I noticed him was when clans were getting big; by then I had stopped playing seriously. But maybe he was a lurker on the forums like I was?).

When the forums for TL finally arrived, I never posted. I am a little embarrassed to say this, but I was just really shy and so never posted anything. And I did not fit in with the community that started forming because I was not as serious about TL as everyone else was (or seemed to be).

So yeah, basically I'm as old of an "oldbie" as you can get. I like to put it this way: I was here before items, clans, forums, additional games, additional servers (which disappeared again later it seems), dark corners, known exploits. And I was here before there were more expensive items other than "lev3 psi enhancer" and "lev3 energy shield."

I played TL on a 56k modem with the worst server/page-loading time imaginable. This was back in middle school (6-8th grade in the US) To give you an idea of age: I am now 21 and am in my third year in college.

So that's basically who I am. :)

Now, back to more clicking. Let's see if any of you "newbies" (har har har) can catch a truly seasoned TL player.

Well, I'm 21 in June and I've been playing since Grade 7. I've worked it out to almost 9 years. Like you said, I was a lurker. I didn't post because everybody already had their own network and I felt left out. My name was "Somebody Important" back then, which is saying something in itself. I was also a nerd in school, so I didn't feel like trying to be a "n00b"

As for showing up with the clans, that was when I decided to have a presence around here. The game is just that much more fun. Oh, and way to ruin the fantasy! LOL j/k

I really don't understand the the fascination and pride of being one of the first members on a site with
a 100 active users. Congratulations, but stop mentioning it.

I've been here..5, 6 years? I don't remember when exactly, but I know I first played TL in 5th grade, which was in 2000 for me. Maybe it was 2001, though. Hmm.

Terran: ... No comment. Seriously, I don't know where to begin.:/

Uhhh, I started playing TL about a year before I made this account.. so, you do the math.. alot of people say this, but I seriously did because I played in school so i never had time to do anything in the forums, just barely had 10 mins each day to play the game.. so when I got a computer, I made an account.

I just thought about how much sense I made, (to me atleast) Because I got a computer right after school let out, which is in mid-may..

Doesn't mean anything, since I remember the old Netnexus layout.

I've been here since umm..when netnexus had only 45 registered users/mods/admins=P But that's not a good gauge cuz of the void. So I've been here since netnexus had a white background.
