Although I have only been here a year, that is longer than most of the people who post on this board. I also think I have been one of the most active and contributing members on this board. Hell, I love this place, so I spend alot of time here. :)

I've been here for over two years now, and my post count is so low. I don't understand how everyone does it...

April 2002. I got my Xbox the day after Christmas 2001. I fell in love with her and found this site. Love it too :) Anyway i've been here for a while and changed my name (hence 540 some-odd posts). I was known as halo_11. I remember alot of the originals too, like Shrew King and alot of the boys before they became Mods; Maximus, Casper, Lynx and Frostberg.

I joined this site on 11=06=01, the day i discovered that xbox would be delayed for retail release until 11/15/01...
I rarely post messages because so many of us already do...I cant believe that some dudes have written over 6000 posts...especially when it has taken me more than 2 years to hit the big 20 milestone!!...
I always read the XBA reviews before I decide to buy any XBOX game...fyi...XBA helped me realize that Outlaw Golf is a hilarious and totally fun experience...
I am impressed with the wealth of knowledge and copious opinions offered by you fellow gamers...I m slowly starting to recognize certain folks as they let me know they think differently...but thats what brings us together!
Keep up the good work and fresh topics...my next milestone will be 30 posts by next December...
:D ;)
A special shout to all the ORIGINAL XBA members...and another shout to the core group who make this site GO GO GO!!

I was here for two months before even signing up. I used to come here to read stuff only then there was a giveaway and I signed up. This was the first forum I had ever been to for any length of time.

Think register was in march of '02. First time here was probably in Nov. or Oct. previous.

Had been trying to decide between a PS2 or xbox, after here and a few other sites, bought my box on launch.

So definitely not OG, but oh well. Most of 'em are gone now.

I used to visit this site since Q2 2001, or probably before that, I remember this site being one of the first sites about xbox, and I registred in November 2001 :D

But I only have 100+ posts because I have my own site, and I used to visit another forum more often than this.

May 2001. heard about xbox and found this site while looking for info. I still check out this site a least 3 times a week but I am just not a big poster.

I would be closer to 400 posts but way back when a crazy post eating monster devoured a bunch of my posts. .

this is still the best site. keep up the good work guys.

You beat me by 3 days

I remember that monster....

Plus there used to be alot of big threads theat got deleted... Like I remember the count down to Xbox thread, It was started like 200 days before xbox came out, and they wanted to see how big it would get on launch, but then STD the thread starter deleted his post, and everyone lost like 50 posts.

I think i offically signed up back in june or july 01, but I read news for along time before that, I just never knew what a forum was so I didnt bother clicking that link

I remembered checking out this site way back in like January of 01 when it first opened. I was a member of MCM2Central so I heard about it when it first opened. I never bothered to sign up coz I wasnt into forums back then, i just came here to check news and screenshots of xbox games. Then xbox came I didnt get one so I stopped visiting the sight for a while. Got wind that I was going to get one for Xmas last year and decided to come back and sign up. By then I was ridden hard on Counter-Strike forums and I imeaditly started posting. I may not be one of the originals but I do know that XBA woulnd't be the same without me ;)

I first originally joined under a name Who_Me...

I came back to the site when I got a computer to find that my user was no longer in site memory, but there was a guy with that exact name, but it wasnt me...

Anyway.. Im not the oldest here I know but I joined way back in 01... and now again in 03...

Ahh it was great as people were having promiscuous sex with many anonymous partners without protection while at the same time experimenting with mind-expanding drugs in a consequence-free environment.

Oh wait, that was the 60's.

ahhhh the 60s...........

...What was the question?

Same here. I never knew the site existed until that November, which just happend to be the time I definately knew that I was getting an Xbox. I started here then went to TeamXbox but definately like it a lot more here, mainly because of the mods. (no, I'm not a kiss ass, even though it sounds like it.) They're just cooler here.

Sorry. but we have to keep it java only for reasons like security and name changing and what not. It integrates perfectly with your user profile, so it's like a one step process to get in there.

Its the only way to control giveaways in the chat without their being pure chaos. Maybe there could be a separate chat from the giveaways?
