    I had spent quite some time on HitmanForum.com, a great forum. Thats where it all started. I am nio stranger to forums. I was a great member with a vast amount of posts and I was slightly respected there. Anyways, thought I wouldvisit this forum and decided to sign up, now look where I am. This place looks promising.

    I cut my forum teeth right here (well, specifically the LoK forums). I migrated over to ECC not too long after.

    At the risk of sounding like a traitor, most of my forum time these days is spent over at [asmb] (adult swim message boards). They're so active I can usually find at least two or three interesting threads every time I log in. Not to say I don't still come here regularly. It's just not as interesting as it used to be.

    I think all forums can dwindle in interest from time to time, my own included.

    One of my forums was deadly quiet for ages then one of my managers got back online and her reappearance has really livened the place up again

    Some days it's buzzing and other days we're lucky to get two posts but that means less work for me Especially since I am going to be creating a new forum. I think the new TR forum will be quite a handful if I get it right!

    I learnt the ropes here before opening a few of my own. All started in the TimeSplitters section.

    My own, of course! And thanks for the chance to blatantly plug it!

    The Chaos Cascade is a 'forum about everything' and is currently on its second iteration, having moved after five years to a new location after the old provider changed the terms of service.

    We are a pretty friendly group and welcome all nice people

    HA, thanks to the spammer for breathing new live into this thread!

    My "home forum" is right here, the Eidos forums.

    More specifically, the TRLE forum, which I joined over 10 years ago.

    When I started getting into TR, I was active on the TR email newsgroup for a while and found out about the Eidos forums there.

    As the TRLE was still very new back in the early days of the Eidos forums, the TRLE forum was pretty hectic and a lot of flaming went on, so the forums needed some mods. The admins at the time held a public voting session for members to choose who they want as mods and I was one of the elected members. So I became a mod soon after I joined and have been a rooted member of this fine community ever since

    The main reason for me, as also mentioned already by others in this thread, is the friendly atmosphere in these forums and the professional staff; my colleagues here are doing an outstanding job of keeping these forums clean and utilizing their mod powers with a good set of morals, instead of just bossing members around because they can, which is unfortunately something that you often see on other forums.

    Gotta admit, atmosphere is hugely important for me in any forum I join (Or run!). The nice, happy, well run ones are definitely in a tiny minority - and I'd certainly count the EIDOS forums as being amongst that number from what I've seen so far.

    You got a great forum here, guys

    Lemme guess: 8-4?

    My primary "forums" are the LOK boards and here in the ECC. Although, I tend to "check in" everywhere else from time to time.

    oi, don't shake your first at me!
    haha no, this spammer was pretty blatant about it, so not 8-4 yet. Though, maybe soon...

    this is one of the reasons I love this forum so much...much more civil than most others I have seen. I have only been posting on forums for about the last 2-3 years or so, but I spend the majority of my time right here at Eidos, then at TRF (the place makes me laugh), then I "check in" to about six more forums (non-game related) every couple of weeks or so.

    Definitely the Eidos forum, specifically the Just Cause 2 and Community Chat, along with a private forum.

    I love Ubisoft's forum, but it doesn't even come close. I love the community in this forum. The community hear is much more friendly, and I frequently talk to the same members here, especially on the JC2 forum (N-Lyger, Rios, Poor Bison, Smc12, Jakk, etc.), but even those outside the JC2 forum I have built relationships with, KoolKat especially comes to mind (very friendly).

    Also, not to continue my "hate" on the Ubisoft forum, but I hate that it barely works when I want to log in, so I barely post there, just read the forums.

    Now, on to the mods.

    The mods are actually helpful (especially Driber) and don't use thier power for evil purposes lololol. Best of all, the mods actually are part of the forum besides moderators as I find myself talking to mods (once again, especially Driber) about things besides "reporting spammers" and other mod-related actions. They just feel like normal forum members, a feeling I think that is sadly nonexistent on many other forums. I have not really been here that long, but aim to be here as long as I can, so HOORAY FOR OUR FORUM COMMUNITY!!!

    Sorry for the long post, but just thought I'd share my thoughts.

    P.S: For those of you who don't know me, hello, and I hope we can become better acquainted in the near future.

    heh, that's exactly the message a lot of the staff members are trying to put across; that we're not some all-powerful-beings with the ability to ban you at will, but in essence, just regular forum members who just happen to have the tools to ensure a tightly run ship

    I am.

    Almost forgot the topic:

    I started off many years ago on the old tombrader.com forum and discovered this place when the board there ground to a halt.

    Originally spent time in the TR forums (General Chat and TRLE) until the community chat forum was started - then I just drifted here and stayed put ever since.

    It's a very important and integral part of the Eidos forums. When you send a friend request to another forum member, the forum staff is notified by email and the member (the "requester") is then placed on a special moderator "watch-list".

    The team take turns monitoring if the friend request has been accepted or rejected.

    If accepted, the member who initiated the friend request gets points on our "likable members list". How many points the member gets for being accepted as someone else's friend depends on the status of the person who accepted the request (the "requestee").

    If the requestee is a "new player", the requester is awarded 1 point. If the requestee is a "Gamer", then the requester gets 5 points. 10 points for gaining a "Protagonist" friend, 20 points for having a "Hero" on your friends list and 25 points if you manage to convince a member of staff to be your BFF.

    When a member reaches 125 points, he is invited to our secret grotto below the Square Enix office in London.

    We pamper the member, whom we henceforth call "Mr. Popular", with caviar and champagne and skimpy girls cater to his every whim.

    In case it's a Ms. Popular, she will be pampered by skimpy members of the Black Veil Bride group.

    I visit this one more then I do any others. Nice people who don't blab off with "You're just a n00b! You don't know what you're talking about!!" if I say something like: "Tried this new strawberry/orange juice today. Quite good."

    I spend most of my time here on these forums in the Tomb Raider section. My online time is often limited, so I figure it best to stick within certain perameters so I don't risk getting lost in any convos I may be interested in. Recently started venturing to general chat tho.

    After this I tend to hit up a few heavy metal forums. If you're on any of them that I am you've probably seen me, as I keep the same name from forum to forum in the chance that I run into someone I know (and I quite like it). And, if you are on one of the metal forums I visit, I refuse to apologize for saying Danzig's latest album would have been better if John Christ was back in the band, so please stop demanding I do so.

    Anyways, I used to moderate a forum on an adult site years ago for a friend of mine, and that was... interesting. Met alot of strange folk on that one, tho not the "entertainers" themselves. They were always quite nice and well mannered. It was the fans of said entertainers who would sneak in now and again that were odd. People do some weird stuff to try and get someones attention sometimes.
