I saw this question raised on another forum and thought it would be interesting to do here too. So how'd you get here and why did you stay?
For me, it all started when I drove past the movie theaters one day. I saw an ad for Jurassic Park: 3D. However, with the ad being inside the theater and me being out in the car, I mistook it for a Jurassic Park IV ad. So I Googled Jurassic Park IV and this site came up. Soon after I realized the ad was for JP: 3D. But I noticed some cool posts and such. So, I decided I'd stick around. That was back in March 27, 2013. Now I'm a moderator and still pretty active around here.
So what's your story?
Looking for dinosaur fights, found one on this site (written by carnosaur). Lurked for a while. Eventually I got an account and here I am today.
Here, have a waffle (-'.')-#
I been following the Godzilla forums since it was created but I didn't want to join, I joined 30 May 2014. Anyway I accidently went to SciFieds home page, and at the top I saw Jurassic World :)
I discovered this last summer, when I was looking for updates on Jurassic World. I read of the few dino fights and I thought they were very good.
But I didn't join b/c I had a lot of school work to do, and I was content to just read the new threads.
Then around late October I was inspired to write my own story, like others here have done. But I needed to develop it, because I wanted it to be extremely powerful and have a few unique points in it. I wanted readers to be able the sheer force of the emotions of the story, such as the pride, love, fear, and unbridled rage. And I wanted it to be a conflict between two of the mightiest carnivores the Mesozoic Era featured.
Thus, The Tyrant's Roar was born.
Thanks Hiphopananomus for that shoutout!
i read a book about carcharodontosaurus and it said it competed with predators like ekrixinatosaurus and sppinosaurus. I didn't know what ekrix was so i searched it up. Then i saw some fights here and read some. I saw rexfan's anky vs rex which go me thinking about making my own account. I also saw something about tarbosaurus and perhaps ekrixinbatosaurus. It ended in 'with a swift downward stroke and tore out the ___'s throat." I liked it and came back to the site after lots of seacrhing. I made an account and after confirming there was no pesonal info needed, i started posting and stuff.
I joined when I Google Jurassic park 4. This website came up, an I saw Rex Fans discussion on the top ten most ferocious dinosaurs. I signed up so I could talk dinosaurs with other people and I've stayed on since. Also became a pretty good friend with rex fan
Well I just joined today and I think I will be staying.
About a week ago my brother joined a car website similar to this and I wanted to find one about dinosaurs because I love them. I searched in google "Dinosaur forum". A few things popped up and by the look of the url it was a news story or something other than what I was looking for. I saw this site and thought it was for what people thought of the movie so I didn't click it. After not finding anything I gave up.
Today I still wanted to find it so I tried the same thing and a different one, which was "Dinosaur Blog". Nothing about dinosaurs popped up, just stuff with dinosaur in the name. I went back to "Dinosaur forum" and finally decided to click this. Low and behold it was what I was looking for :D.
Haha, I remember this topic. I joined pretty much exclusively to be a dick because I honestly didn't have the guts to in real life. How things change when you find people who accept you for the train wreck you are. I never talked, I never got invited to go anywhere with anyone, I avoided any and all human contact. Now is a different story. I found two friends who love me for who I am (they must, they hug me and give me food) and now I don't really give a shit what people think. I've gotten nicer online, and meaner IRL, figure that one out. That's the short, dumbed down version of my story. The detailed version is much longer and I strongly dislike talking about feelings with anyone other than the two mentioned previously.
So Vader, I'm not the only one that gets emotional.
No, you're not. Now buzz off, we don't need to argue here.
We aren't arguing, we're talking.
You shut up and I'll get you hugged.
Jack of all trades. Master of none
