    How did you find classicamiga.com?

    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.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    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?

    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.

    You're right. Have you seen the posts they recently made in the amiga topic, I already send some of them into moderation. Same counts for the C64 topic.

    I 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.
