If I were to have signed up for this site immediately after I discovered it, I would be a member with number between 10-20. I kinda wish I had. Unfortnately I waited the extra three years/750 members :lol:
So how long did you guys wait and why?

So this is one of those threads where "Im not a newb because I've been reading it for awhile" Nobody cares. I have been reading these forums for a fairly long time. The information is so secret, im not going to say. Thats how secret it is.

I didn't mean it that way. I was just saying how long I had waited because I procrastinated. Actually, I think quite the opposite. I don't care when someone joined this site, cause no one knows everything; Everyone is still learning something.

I'd have to vote negative as I signed up before there was anything to browse.

For what it's worth, the first 21 members were by invite so I doubt you would have gotten a top-10 or 20 UID. Gunneddown was the first member to sign up when we 'went live' on Dec 26th.

I had just gotten back into nerf after a 5 year hiatus, so as soon as I discovered this site I hopped on immediately.

EDIT: Unnecessary comma.

I believe that image belongs on a T-shirt, if it isn't already. It perfectly describes that post (and this one probably). Even though it was aimed towards me, I still think it is quite funny.

Definately two seconds because I joined before reading anything. I was getting sick of NHQ. I remember I signed up during a big New Years Eve bash ...or was it the day after?

I think I signed up just when I got the invite, before I even read any posts. Hence the low member #.

There used to be a nerf forum a long long time ago that I was a part of. I'm sure a lot of you know about it. I was just looking nerf stuff up one day and I found this.

GeneralPrimevil, why is waiting for a while before regestering up procrastinating?

Procrastination is when you don't study for your CS242 midterm tommorow morning and its 9:55pm right now.

8:55pm central to you guys.

Data structures?

Numerical methods?

Algorithm design?

Microprocessor logic?

Come on, it's 200-level, you can do a quick 45 minute cram and wing it!

Saying that "I'll sign up tomorrow" when it's tomorrow, that and at one point I was procrastinating to mod my BF, which then led me out of nerf for a year and a month, so that's why I hadn't signed up til this year.

I don't know about your system, but at my school (Brown), 200-level is graduate-only courses.

And Procrastination is having 2 large homework assignments due on Thursday and not starting them til 11 p.m. on Wednesday. We finished at 6 a.m. Yeah, that was fun.
