View Full Version : Kicking it Old School Week- GiantITP memories (Sep 23-29)

Remember your first day?

Remember your first post?

How about your SMBG?

Your first custom Avvie?

A few of your first sig items?

This week is to celebrate our roots as the wonderful (and dastardly in some cases) posters of the Forum. Both reminisce on the "good ol' days" here and laugh at each others early beginnings (and avatars)

The requirements.

Bring back your first avvie (if possible)

Try and recreate sig pieces!

And sit back and remember the "goold ol days"

It'll run sometime in September (so not as to trample on "Mistaken identity week")

And if you're not that old you can come and get a feel what it "used to be" here. :wink:

So.........who's up for a round of stabbity death? :tongue:

Sounds like a plan. I still have my old avatar. I'm not sure on the exact wording of my sig back then, but it must have contained a link to my OOTS style Deck of Many Things.

Avatar, easy... Now only to remember what in the Nine Hells I had in my sig... If I just take everything out, except for the dancing girl, I'd be pretty close to a pretty old sig.

Hahah, OWNED. I found a word document with an older sig in it. :biggrin:

Bookman
2007-08-02, 03:23 PM
Sadly I am mostly sigless but I do have one from before the forum swap.

One of my quotes is STILL the same (and it was my first one too :wink:)

2007-08-02, 03:33 PM
How far back do you want us to go? I could go back just 2 years and most of you wouldn't recognize me. I've completely forgotten what my sig used to be, but I know of some things that I have used in the past. This should be fun.

with the avatar, does that include the giant's? i started here with the druid, then the chimera, the black dragon, the lizardmen...

I'm in. I'm pretty sure I've got my old avatar somewhere. And then, as now, I hated the .sig. So no problem there. The only issue might be changing my location back to what it was before, since I think there's a limit now on the number of characters in the location.

Bookman
2007-08-02, 04:13 PM
As far as one wants to go of course! I'm going back to the beginning but you could go back 2 months if you really wanted. But I think it'd be really fun to go all the way back and see what it was "back then"

I think first custom avatar is probably best, since I think a lot of us used the board avatars when we first joined. Right, Booky?

Right Ego! :smile:

Oooooooo Old School Amotis......

And now.......without much ado.......a revelation of Booky's first custom avvie.. A CULT was formed when he was taken away. He came with a MEMORABALE quote. His weapon was taunted by many. His mere presence gave Bookman a title he bears to THIS DAY (in secrecy) He bore many names but his simple name carried the most impact..... revealing............

Hah all those questions, I'm still a young'un! I've never even had my own custom avatar (too chicken to ask haha :smalltongue:)

I used to walk around with the druid avatar and this is in fact my first sig.

I tried some SMBG but that got really old really fast.

And that's all the old school for me! :smallsmile:

Anyone remember my old sig?No.


I might be able to dig up the avatar Hawkeye made for me, if I ever feel like it. Otherwise, I have my second custom avatar, (which was also my second avatar).

Then I simply erase my sig, or dig up old links to my first couple PbP characters.

And the personal text! Don't forget the personal text. I miss it...

First day?

- i was bored :smallbiggrin:

Remember your first post?

No, why the hell should i?

How about your SMBG?

??????? is that this ? -->:smallbiggrin:

Your first custom Avvie?

I started with the barbarianguy of this board, then moved to some evil guy who looked a bit like sauron off another forum, and now im using this one which DR.Bath made me. I want it with a black background, and even made my own, but it sux so i'm keeping this 1 for now.

A few of your first sig items?

My sig hasnt had much deleted off it. at all.
one of my first items was the "my colour is black" thing.

whats stabbing? my heart knows only slashing and bludgeoning. *Wrestles to ground* *punches out* *kills with greataxe.* =)

Well, I'm technically supposed to use this one:

The first Ego Slayer, by the lovely Veera.

But, I really, really want to use this one again 'cos it's the awesomest avatar evar::smallsigh:

I vaguely remember doing something unintentionally stupid.


Remember your first post?

Probably said something stupid. I was...different back then.


How about your SMBG?

Hmm...probably a trip to Stabitty Death. Of course, Evil Inc. is the one that I really got into, and eventually renamed so it'd be AMEN. I'm sure you've heard of it by now.


Your first custom Avvie?

It won't show up. :smallfrown:


A few of your first sig items?

None that I can remember. Probably included something stupid.

That avvie rules, I like it a lot. But one does get tired even of awesome avvies, don't you? Having so many possibilities and cool things to try, it's fun to change it every once in a while.

There are some that are beyond cool, though, like Serpentine's. And they should only be changed for a better one, which in this case is very difficult. It's also a matter of identity, for those who achieved that. Like Vorpal, ZRS, Amotis and others.

Anyway, I was thinking this while looking at join dates. Which user has the oldest join date, of those still active? And by active I mean posting on a truly regular basis, not 2 times a month in some obscure pbp game.

*points to the admin staff* Them. They all joined in August 2003. Well except for Rawhide. But The Giant, Wampa and RAWBear all joined then.

2007-08-02, 11:01 PM
Ah yes. I remember my first avatar. I don't remember what was in my first sig, but I do remember that it contained "Two Rapiers are better than one!" Hee hee. Even back then, I was so very cheesy.

Good times.

Anyway, totally in. :smallbiggrin:

Syka
2007-08-02, 11:01 PM
I think my first post was on the thread where Vorpal was looking for players for his Shades Of Delusion game (the first run around on the boards). Probably just stating interest.

I don't remember much other than joining games because for my first year and a halfish I was only on PbP.

I still have my first custom avatar, which my ex made for me. :smallsmile: Rawhide tidied this up.

http://www.users.on.net/~rawhide/girl3c.gif

As for sig, I've got no clue. I don't think I had one for a while.

Oh, my first posts were all about rules for D&D. I didn't have much actual tabletop experience back then.

*looks at join date* Well, I like to think I have learned a few tricks since then :p

I've always had self-made avvies. This was my first, but actually wasn't done for the forum, though it was inspired by it:

First avatar was one of rich's zombies, when I was the forum newbie of forum newbies...

Umm...First post was something to do with Haley's cryptograms...

Signature was nonexistant until January, when I started in Town...probably had a link to my Townies, and a link to Kevan.org's zombie thing.

First SMBG was kiss/kill...Or Town, depending on your definition, in January...Town was when I got my first custom avvie...

I still have it somewhere...hang on a sec...

Ah yes, here it is, in all it's pixelated paint glory, with extra photoplus special effects.

My first day, 9/11/2006. Yeah, besised being the aniversery of a horrible event, I was pulled over that day on my way to school, other stuff happened (It was a Monday, I think, so it was a horrible day anyways), and I posted something realy newbish about the words "Out of fudge ripple".

Yay me. Hey, did you know I did all that by pure memory?

Yes, this was my first avatar, and how I used to picture Rex Idiotarum:

http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n291/rexidiotarum/oots.gif

But I so want to use the updated:

With elements incorperated from what people have told me to do with it.
Yes, even in my first avatars, I prized myself on Animation.

I still have my good old avatar from Sneak.

I can remember being so dissapointed then too. I had seen all Veera's wonderful avatars and really wanted one, but she had her 50 post minimum rule. So I waited and waited until I finally could get one, and when I did, I found she had retired.
I can remember the first Random Banter, the first Trog's Tavern, Sneak's dolls...

my first avvie was of my first characters in town...Mac, if i'm correct.

My beloved bard, Jibar, complete with lute (because I was told bitchin electric guitars were a no go in a fantasy setting :smalltongue: ) and force shield ring.
The day after the game session when he and a group of level 5 PCs (with three levels in NPC classes) managed to finish off things so far above our challange ratings it was silly was the day I joined.
Good times. Good times.

If you don't recognise them, I bet you don't recognise the rest of these guys:

This thread is elitist! No fair!

My first post... was about a month after I made my account, so I knew to defend myself in the welcome thread. I sounded stupid.
First non-default avvie I was too lazy to change, and thus still have.
In my sig, I said something about being the self-appointed representative of the lurkers on the boards, and sounded stupid.
I think I stayed in wish twisting and kiss/kill. Mostly so I could hit on girls without them noticing.

Not much ever changes with me.

Wait... What about Cobra? It just won't be the same!

The first avatar was the Giant's Blue Knight, then Ceika gave me that fateful stabbity and the first llamatar used probably the llama knight. My first post was stabbitying Mikoto because "an exciting way to introduce a new character is to have him kill an old one."

Hiysa! My first ever acount on GiantITP... I created a really yuk reputation for myself though, and got into a massive bitchfight with all the oldies: Kyrian, Vael/Faceninja (where did they go), Gwen, and all of that little niche. I got really angry with them all, and eventually, decided it was better to just walk away from these forums for a while... I won't say who I am now though :smallbiggrin: But the old times were really fun, till I got into a war with too many people, so I came back a fair while ago, and all that. This isn't my original avvie, this is just my one that I had before I left.
My first post was in wish with a twist.

Alarra
2007-08-06, 08:00 AM
Ooooh, I'm so in this. I still have my first avatar (well, after I stopped using 'white wizard girl')...it's crappy, and I've gone through like 10 since, but...

and I remember what was in my sig 3 years ago too. It was a poem by Emily Dickinson.

WampaX
2007-08-06, 08:12 AM
I had to move my avie quote to my sig . . . but my sig changed every so often with a quote . . . can't recall what was the first thing to be put in there. Probably:

"Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive." -- Bugs Bunny

First avatar would have to be one of the copyright infringing ones that the old VB software came pre-loaded with. After that, it would have been my cut-out from the Wampa card in Decipher's SWCCG with the cool "reaching out to grab you" look.

And yes, as I've stated many, many times before, I'm the oldest relatively active poster having been the first person to sign onto the boards after The Giant and RawbearNYC.

Bear witness to the first post. (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9014)

Remember your first day? I had lurked awhile and was VERY bored at work

Remember your first post? Pretty sure it would be be in the "Say Hi to the newbies" section but soon moved to what would later become the Tears of Blood section.

How about your SMBG? Think I started three all in one day. Though I think it was somthing dealing with free association and a geography lesson....and I used a phrase not a word.

Your first custom Avvie? Never used one. back in my day the only ones with custom avies were the mods and gorbash...Veera had just discovered the trick to matching the giants style which would lead to Veeratars and soon the whole whole custom avatar mess. Though I did really like the ones she made for herself. Especially the Technoligique (sp) one. [/codgery rant]

A few of your first sig items? Again never bothered...not sure if I remember any sig items when I started but they may just not have been so popular.



Bring back your first avvie (if possible)-done

Try and recreate sig pieces!-done

And sit back and remember the "goold ol days"-easy...it started not long after I had been out of school walking through the snow everyday back and forth in -30 degree weather uphill both ways! (would be funnier if it wasn't true)

So.........who's up for a round of stabbity death? :tongue:

Stabbity death with six daggers held in my tentecles!


Edit. Its funny but I remember MOST of these....Alarra's pink wizard...Ego in a white dress dress (how innocent and cute eh)...Jibar as a sneaky thing that didn't make any logical sense then either....which i why I find the cat muffin so much easier to deal with.

It's funny, I never really went to SMBG for while, and now most of my forum time goes there. I missed the sign up for OotS Showdown 1 and since then I've been hanging around SMBG. I think I started off with Who's Next! and Rate the Avatar.

2007-08-23, 04:34 PM
This is a pretty cool theme week, I must admit. I don't know if I'll get involved, because I can't remember my first sig, and I don't know where to find any of my previous custom avatars.

My first post was in the Recruiting thread for Clans of Alanador, which ended up being a great game, and one of the longer running I've been in, even though it's now long defunct. Actually, I think the only one that ran longer was Generica, which is also now defunct, though that could just be my nostalgia making it seem like it lasted longer.

My first custom avvy was for a schizophrenic warlock that was bouncing around in my head for a while. The one I'm most attached to before Cardinal Ximinez was an illithid chef frying a brain that I found in Sneak or Chris's gallery. I remember being told once that between my avvy, my sig, and my name I couldn't possibly be cooler, though I don't remember which name that was.

It was either HoosierDaddy or early in Don Beegles. I remember I went a short stint as chipmunkboy when I realized HoosierDaddy made me sound like I was a Hoosier, which I'm not. Probably HoosierDaddy, because I think Darklight said it, and I remember he was upset when I switched to chipmunkboy.

I don't remember any of my old sig except for the unforgettable:
Ilithids have no genitals, which I unfortunately can't replicate now because they got rid of the marquee feature.

I also only remember one of my PTs, a That 70s Show Quote: I'll even let you be Mandar, the half-elf.


Wow, I just realized that I've been here for quite a while now. I'm surprised that I haven't completley lost interest. I've stopped posting as much recently, but I can't believe I haven't stopped reading completely.

Aeyamar was at my house for some RL gaming. I think Fredrickson was there too, and I'm pretty sure that was the day my bagpipes came as well. so it was an awesome day to begin.

Remember your first post?
On request an avatar explaining what Wayril looked like.

How about your SMBG?
I don't really think I got into that until much later.

Your first custom Avvie?
Made by Omen. It was cool but then I got into making avatars myself and I stopped using that one. (Before that I used the custom drow avatar for about 1 day)

A few of your first sig items?
I think my link to my photobucket account; link to my char for ZRS's game; and possibly some IA trophies.

Personal Text (if that's what the thing under the user name was): One for Sorrow, Two for Joy (from the Counting Crows song, Murder of One)

My first couple posts were basically spam... I remember that much.

I changed default avvies every day, I believe. Don't even remember what the hell my sig was, though.

And my first custom avatar was an animated mind flayer by idksocrates (or somesuch)...

And my first post was in an Iron avatarist thread, I didn't really know what was going on but Serpentine gave me a helping hand, which was nice.
I did? o.O That was nice of me...
My first was a Sar'Pynestae by Elflad, I think.

My good 'ol days may be slightly less than a year ago, but I'm so in on this. I can break out my old world-turtle avatar, and restore my Miko Fan Club sig. Hmm. Not that much of a change. Oh well. I guess I could also ask extremely obvious questions that everyone should know the answer to, but that might be taking 'Old School' a little too far. :smallcool:

I love my pirate too and I'll be back to it after this probably. But I guess this is fun ^^

I was reminded today that I used to post a lot in the Media forum. I did some gaming forums lurking and posting too even before that. Never had a sig, really.

My first post was probably a rules question. IIRC I never introduced myself properly here. So here it is: I'm Felipe, aka FdL :) I like druids and gnomes. My avvie is a gnomish druid and she's called Droppi ^^

Don't you dare.
Last time you switched, I noticed that it was still you, but over time, I gradually wiped the connection out of my mind, every now and then wondering "what happened to that guy with the two swords that's leaning against the wall?"
Then you switched back and pretty much blew my mind. I was picking up the pieces for weeks.

And then a few more random puns. Although, I think I've seen others with those quotes since, so I probably have forgotten what the first ones where...

I also once had a nice poem in abut Death, can't find it now though...

Im not 100% sure but I think my first post was in stabbity death. If not it defintly was in the SMBG forum. Also I remember the first person to welcome me to the playground was... Chunklets.

Also I need to find my original custom avatar. Ceika updated the one i used to use when i ended up being tiger lily in the Pirates Game.
