Every time I see some new members join us I wonder how they discovered classicamiga for the first time. So how did you discover classicamiga?

As well as answering the poll, please say a bit more about how you came here. It would be great to find out.

Unfortunately I can't tell anymore. It has been along time now I'm on the boadrs, but I can't remember how exactly I came here. Probably whilst searching for amiga sites (what else). I was one of the first members (Nr: 7), and registered the second day it was online, I speak of course of the old boards.

Since that time I always enjoyed being on the site with almost the same regular members than now, asked for getting a moderator position after soem years and now fully enjoy being on the board and helping for the main site, and I'm always occupied.

Didn't you originally start out with us on the GameFAQs Amiga board?

Didn't you originally start out with us on the GameFAQs Amiga board?That could be, I've been there since already a long time, and I think that was the first forum I was visiting. Then I saw that they also got some retro boards, C64 and amiga. I'm pretty sure that's where we met.

I came here bacause Dazzaboy from Oldskool UK reecommended your site, simple as that. A loooooooong time ago I knew the guy who ran the Lowlife BBS, along with guys like Blobby, Voodoo and Little John who ran a Nintendo BBS IIRC.

It is such a shame that GameFAQs declined and their boards are hardly ever worth visiting or posting on these days. So many little kids measuring each others "hardware" and fighting about who has the longest "cable".

I remember when I first discovered GameFAQs it was a great place to visit and post. With many great members discussing a lot of great subjects about anything and everything game and computer related. Then the mods got power hungry and all the great posters left.

I came here bacause Dazzaboy from Oldskool UKI was asking him to put his newsletters on our main site, surely that's why he knows about the board. Hopefully he will also take a look at our forums.

Well, you know how I got here Harrison. But if anyone else is curious, I was also one of the GameFAQs members who hung out at the Amiga board. So I registered here along with everyone else when Harrison announced he'd opened a Classicamiga forum, after that mod wiped all our posts on the Amiga board for no good reason.

And about GameFAQs, I agree completely. I've been a member there for many years now, but the past few years I've hardly posted there at all. I still go there from time to time, but almost never find any interesting topics. It's as you say, just full of kids asking the same old questions, making the same old topics, having the same old arguments. I just can't be bothered about that place anymore.

Sound a bit like when I'm at school with everyone talking about their Core Duo systems. And one person who has a laptop with 90 gigs of memory (not RAM) (or the other way round. i can't remember). And various people saying that the 8MHz processor that was in a system we looked at in ICT coursework was crap.

Anyway, I have been visiting the ClassicAmiga site since about 2002. It was definately before the forums were made though. Found it because I found harrison's original page via Google I think and it had a link to classicamigacom.

Joined the forums in March 2003.

I posted a few times on the Amiga gameFAQS boards and then one day Harrison popped up and started posting. Then he started his own site and I ended up posting there more and more frequently until at one point I did virtually nothing but make silly posts and topics on the old boards.

And what you guys have said about gameFAGS is 100% true, it used to be a great place but now the boards just are not worth bothering with. Although it is possible that the boards there have only gotten a little worse, but I have a much lower tolerance for them than I did all those years ago (indeed, the internet seemed new and wonderous back then, instant communication with people all over the world.... now it is just another easy resource, taken for granted).

I was spending a lot of time looking for pc abandonware, and stumbled onto a link to classicamiga.

Lurked on the GameFAQs Amiga forum for a while, but never posted. I had the link to Classicamiga saved in my bookmarks, but didn't decide to sign up until very recently. I guess I was bored :)

I'm glad you finally decided to sign up, as the Gamefaqs amiga board is very lame and there are many blockheads lurking around. And it's also good to see new members registering and also posting something.

Maybe a bit late to this post but I found this awesome site because of a mention on game central. Thanks to whoever wrote in I now have a spiffy A1200 with a HD and an unnatural desire to buy upgrades...

Girls... They just don't understand the important things in life do they.

Try to make her see sense by comparing your passion for the Amiga to most girls obsession with shoes and handbags.

Damn! That's because girls think illogically due to all those hormones flying around. You have to study their moods and insert your logic at exactly the right moment, between the long illogical bits.
