    I don't feel veteran is the appropriate word.
    We're talking about close to 10 years or beyond here.

    In terms of online communities and evolution, we are sodding ancient by now.
    Wise old buggers with knee-long grey beards babbling on about long faded glory, throwing a word of wisdom to the younglings once every while.

    That's more like it.

    I know what you are saying my friend, next year is going to be my 10 years at TWC and it doesn't feel that way.
    I can't believe its going to be 10 years honestly. Its great that forum is still busy as ever and its wonderful to be
    here, we probably just need few more old members to return. For me personally the best years here were 2008-2009,
    I still miss those years for it was a glorious time when it came to being here!

    Yeah, you are right. We should get here more often. One question though, someone told me that when you reach 10-year milestone you
    are eligible for that TWC milestone award!! So am I going to get one in October??

    Congratulations. I'm exactly a year away from my 10 years also. In fact it's 10 years since I joined totalwar.org, and 9 years since I decided TWC was better and never looked back (unless there was a new EB patch!). Don't think I even noticed when I surpassed my 10,000 posts.
    A new mobile phone tower went up in a town in the USA, and the local newspaper asked a number of people what they thought of it. Some said they noticed their cellphone reception was better. Some said they noticed the tower was affecting their health.

    A local administrator was asked to comment. He nodded sagely, and said simply: "Wow. And think about how much more pronounced these effects will be once the tower is actually operational."

    I did the same, joining The .Org in 2007, thinking it was the "better" of the two.

    I joined both. Thought nothing of either. Hardly posted in either. Then, this vortex came and I have been here ever since.

    Ok, so only if you get 10,000 posts and over. I see, well if this was my best years here 2008-2009 then reaching
    that threshold would not be an issue, in those days I used to make 100+ posts per night. But now, too busy with the real life
    and TWC doesn't sort have that same energy and dynamics that it once had.

    But I still believe in TWC and that's why I stayed here! And I believe that energy would come back, it has to, it always does.

    Congratulations. I'm exactly a year away from my 10 years also. In fact it's 10 years since I joined totalwar.org, and 9 years since I decided TWC was better and never looked back (unless there was a new EB patch!). Don't think I even noticed when I surpassed my 10,000 posts.
    Thanks mate, same to you too. It feels like it was yesterday doesn't it. I never joined .org just visited it few times. My reason for coming here was M2TW and all its mods.
    I came across TWC, .org and few other TW games related sites. There was TW heaven or something similar. But immediately I knew that TWC was for me and all the other
    sites were for losers!

    Its great that we are all still here, that's loyalty! And also we can bring back that old energy, muscularity and passion that TWC once had!

    Yes, indeed. Quite so.

    Some good times my fellow TWCers, times with launches of fresh TW games (came right after RTW was released, the buzz around these places), times with Curial soap operas (), times with excellent modding releases, time where TWC would be a good place to just chat and exchange ideas.

    So thank you for the wonderful times, fellow TWCers, Citizens, Patricians and leaders. Glad to be on board.
    I actually have you beat by 1 year son! My adult diaper has more capacity than yours whippersnapper!

    Now that I see all these fine old-farts here why don't we do something productive like teach the youth of today how to start a Curial takeover? Why don't we vote in the Black Prince as Divus? Why don't we decide that all non-citizens should be our personal pisspot carriers?

    I actually joined in 2002 or 2003 I think as Musashi... right there with the early crowd. I changed my profile shortly before the venerable (now long gone) Acutulus decided to patronize me.... then I kept sticking my battleaxe into fine pudding and brought many of you so called old-timers into the jolly jamboree that was the Curia back then - I miss the days of the triumvirate, role playing as real romans in the Curia... the Knights of St.John should mean something to some of you
