    I'm just asking because I have noticed quite a lot of very heavily active members who joined this year and last (and have twice the posts I have). Sometimes it makes me miss BoneMonkey.

    I would think of somebody as an old member when his Joined date is five years or more ago.
    So no, you're just average IMHO.

    No, Nothing spectacular. Old members, are the ones that were here before GBAtemp had gained any popularity. They are the ones that helped build the forum and IRC presence.

    Some of us could be considered "older", but just not as active. Post count doesn't equate to how valuable you are, so don't worry about that.

    been here roughly the same amount of time you have so i think we can be considered older members. i just never had the motivation to post constantly like some people do.

    I've been here for a year and a half now, I feel like a regular, but I wouldn't consider myself an oldie yet. You, maybe.

    I agree with Satangel and Prophet.

    I guess not. IDK really since I haven't been here for that long myself. And I miss BM too.

    I've been here longer than you, and no, it's not a bad thing to be here for 3 years.

    I consider older members those that joined before user 100,000. Anyone that joined around that time definitely experienced a lot of the classic members that pretty much barely post here now, spikey, [ m ]artin, to name a few.

    Who the hell cares? No offense man, but why write this? If you provided a lot to the community I could understand, but 90% of us are lurkers and useless post writers.

    Yeah, they were cool [​IMG]

    I should post here more often. My GBATemp posting and even lurking has dropped a lot.

    You should be counted as an older member.


    (btw, I wonder who the 3rd option refers to? Me, probably.)


    EDIT:
    Oh harr harr.

    hahahahaha, nice one protokun [​IMG]

    i have to agree that post count doesn't translate to anything
    just look at Narin... before i join gbatemp he was pretty active and most of them here still respect him [​IMG]

    Testing area was so much more alive than EOF and I actually got daily laughs from it.

    Who really cares? I would consider three years a long enough time though.

    My sister is an oldie - joined in 2002 - member 300 something (no longer active though).

    Shortly after she quit, I joined.

    I don't post much - but post counts or length of time on GBAtemp aren't important. The community is really the pull for me.

    There was a time when things with various staff got out of hand (I took a break back then), but things changed, and it would be hard for me to quit now.

    Do I consider myself an oldie? Never thought about it.
    But I know GBAtemp (and it's members) when it hosted roms way back.
