    I took a look at the old post counter, and it's at 3,444 posts. Looked below that at my join date. It hit 3 years last month. My first thread was originally asking for someone to upload their Legend Of Zelda: Spirit Tracks save. Since mine went corrupt from activating too many cheats. My first post was actually in Darkchen's GBA iPlayer loader thread. I'm mainly active in the trading forum, because I like to Buy/Sell/Trade things with you all. :D I know many of you old timers have been here for quite a while, and I find it pretty awesome to be connected to a community for that amount of time. (Although most of you old timers have been inactive, and are just recently coming back.) Anywho the purpose of this thread is because I genuinely want to hear about what was your first thread/post about? What'd you think of the community when you joined? Favorite forum to hang around in? Doesn't have to be the one you post often it. So, go. Oh, and it'd be pretty awesome to quote your first ever post on GBAtemp, and quote the last thing you wrote on another thread and post them in here for comparison.

    First post in Darkchen's GBA iPlayer loader news thread.

    Newest post in GBAtemp Scavenger Hunt.

    Damn, I feel old. Been hanging around for 9 years :blink:.

    First post is no longer here, pretty sure it's been purged. My post history seems to only go back to 2003 and that's a release topic (think they got archived). First post was something about GBA flashcarts.

    I was actually a lurker here for quite some time, then I finally gave in and signed up for help on the now-defunct Mario Kart Wii H.
    To everyone who helped beta test: I'm sorry for the confusion and pain I caused you by being stupid.

    Not my first post, but one from my glory days.

    I kinda went downhill from there.

    My first post was pretty much replying to an old thread (Can't remember if I necro-bumped it) about removing the Health&Safety screen while keeping the "Nintendo DS" logo on boot.

    Then people reply telling me there's no use in replying to a thread that old since he probably didn't care anymore.

    So I reply that it can always help someone looking for a solution who Google searched his way to that thread.

    I was such a freakin noob when I got here. And Despite what my post says I never did become a Nintendo fanboy. I have pretty much remained neutral despite my gaming preferences.

    And now my latest post...

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Lately...as in the last few years, I have not been very active in the gaming boards. I now focus my attention on general discussions, because there is only so many times I can see someone complaining about one thing or another with certain games/companies/consoles. The gaming boards have just turned into one giant bitch-fest IMO.

    Most of my posts are in the 360 hacking section.
    Most of my posts that aren't serious are in the EoF

    My first post:
    I came here already educated on how to not be entirely stupid on an internet forum of this kind, so moving myself in as an at least remotely intelligent member of the community wasn't incredibly difficult. I suppose I should quote my latest post, too.

    Looking at my earlier posts, they aren't really tinged with that horrid noobishness, which feels great. I guess by forum number 7 or 8 over the years, I finally managed to overcome the noob period to a certain degree.

    Oh, gosh. Looking back at my first few posts right now and god was I a whiny noob. Seriously, I hate to say it but I came during the Pokemon Floods back in 2010. And the 18th of this month will be two years of Zerosuit Connor, the stupid alias I thought I would only use once. As of today I've opened 87 threads and have nearly 2000 posts.
