Technically I joined back on the scapeboards before this forum so it's been a bit longer. Been many many years since I lurked these forums.  Finishing up my 8th year of school where I'm a quad major in Air Traffic Control, Airline Dispatch, Airport Management, and Airline Transportation.  Played 4 years of college baseball along the way, and somehow never quit Runescape from the first time I played it back in 2001.  

 

Any other old timers still out there?

Congrats, great milestone!  I'd say I've been around about half as long (5 years).  I joined a while after though - before that my main interest was reading the Tip.It Times here :P.

Very nice Career choice you have there. Where do you eventually hope to end up?

ATC was something i've been thinking about for a while, but i know it can be extremely stressful. I don't know if that's something i want at such a young age.

Very impressed to see someone who has been here this long posting again. I wouldn't consider myself a oldtimer but I am approaching it eventually. 

 

I always considered something in ATC, but had the same doubts as Noxx had. 

 

I wish you the very best.

 

EDIT: I also see you are from Seattle, I hope to be moving there next year :)

I still don't feel like I qualify as "old timer" but I did play a hell of a lot of runescape in the 05-08 era

Approaching 7 years before the mast. If I'm still posting here in four years I will have been a regular TIF poster for the majority of my life, which is weird to think about o_O

I was 2005 member, but started this TIF account when my original Runescape account got banned. I wanna say I started playing in 6th or 7th grade in 2002. That was when we still had dial-up at my parents' house and I mostly played in study hall at school. Quit playing shortly after Dungeoneering came out. I don't know if the game sucked or if I just got too old for it. Probably a little of both.

I just realized I've already hit the 10-year mark, plus a little extra from my time using Scapeboard. Damn.

Lurked around for about 2 years before creating account, I still have a way to go. But I've been on-off 'scape since '01 aswell, so you are not the only old-timer ;)

 

Funny to think, I was 7 when I made my first acc...

I joined Scapeboard back in 2002 (13th September I believe). Started playing RuneScape in 2000 or 2001, played for roughly 3-4 years.

 

Not sure why I still come here, but I tend to log-on maybe once every few months - suppose it's primarily to see if this place still exists.

Been here 7 years, time sure flies, funny thing is, that (in my case atleast) ive "known" (as you only interact online, not IRL) people from when we both were 13-14, and now going 20, you have practically known them throughout your teenage years, from scawny freshman in high/middle school, to College junior

There is really no limit to how much you disgust me.

Can't say that I feel like one of the old timers, though it hits me I have one of the earlier join dates around these parts. But there was already an established group in OT and elsewhere when I joined, and I don't think I ever really got around to becoming 'one of them' before I melted into the ether for several years.

 

It's nice to see an old face around even if I don't recognize you :P (Quite frankly, unless The_Sith wanders back onto these boards, I'm probably not going to recognized someone from the old days).

Well, what happened is that most people grew up. RS grew too efficiency based, solo affair. No time for socializing.

RS always was, its just most of us were 12 when we started so we had no idea about efficient methods nor the patience to actually try them.

 

I dont think the low efficiency average player ever went away. Even today Im sure they still make up most players.
