When Did You Join?

Got a little nostalgic, so I went trawling on the old forums archive until I was able to uncover this:

I’d been lurking for a while (since BL2 launch effectively) before creating an account. In retrospect, I’m a little surprised it too me that long to sign up, but I had been posting some place else. I notice that I’d stopped posting on the old forums shortly before they were officially shuttered: IIRC that was a conscious decision, although I was posting on both for a little while.

Hey @FlamesForAll, remember this?

I do indeed, old friend!

The GBX forums used to be on a different host / server until early 2015, did they not?

December 3rd or 4th, 2014. It was the day after the TPS hotfix that lowered Iwa’s drop rate for the Christmas event. Joined the forums to spite MAK and Bahroo and Goth for encouraging a riot like total children.

Closed my old account so I can’t get a screenshot, but I’m pretty sure I became active around early 2012. First found the forum and ‘lurked’ a year or so after Borderlands was released. Somewhere around the time that Duncan was asking the community questions about GearCalc and Scottes was doing all of his elemental testing. That was my ‘holy ■■■■’ moment when I realized there was so much more to the game than Old Haven grinding.

Shoutout to all of the really old geezers who were around before Pearls actually became Pearls. Or even the few remaining that joined before Borderlands became a section.

Went digging for this, joined because trading in BL2.


Went from trading to build guides and just ended up in off topic.

Joined the new forum September 2014 as part of the testing group.

I have been active for like 3 years…
