How did you find us?
« on: June 16, 2004, 07:16:16 AM »
Hey troopers!  Welcome to the new Sandtroopers Forums!  I have a couple of questions for our new recruits.  First of all, how did you hear about Sandtroopers.com, and how long have you been visiting our site?  Secondly, how did you hear about our new forums?  We're just curious to know a little bit more about our newly enlisted recruits, but I can tell you one thing... we are honored to have you here.  We do hope you like the new forums, and be sure to spread the word about our existence.

I heard about it from my good freind dustrho.

How long have you been visiting our site?  
Since I heard about the site just recently.

Secondly, how did you hear about our new forums?  
Again, my friend dustrho.

We're just curious to know a little bit more about our newly enlisted recruits, but I can tell you one thing... we are honored to have you here.  We do hope you like the new forums, and be sure to spread the word about our existence.

I am honored to be here. I will spread the word of Sandtroopers.

Actully I stumbled upon Sandtroopers about three years ago while I used to be a hard-core Yak-head, I found my home here. General Jason and Ret. Gen. Vaughn took me under their wings and I appreciate the opportunity that Emperor Crypt gave me. My tour of duty is one of many ups and downs. I look forward to fulfilling my mission and becoming one of the greatest Sandtroopers ever.
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.

 I've ben reading ST.com since about the time EPI came out. I've been posting on the jawa for about 2 years or so now. I clicked on the forums section on ST.com and wound up here and registered. That is about it...
We are a extreme fighting force of extraordinary magnitude !!!

First of all, how did you hear about Sandtroopers.com?

I don't remember exactly. I'm sure that I followed a link from another collecting community, likely either Rebelscum or the Jawa. But the memory is hazy . . .

How long have you been visiting our site? 

Since around '98 or '99, I think. Again, the memory is hazy. I know that I was a daily visitor by spring of '99, but I can't put my finger on exactly when.

Secondly, how did you hear about our new forums? 

The link at the top of the home page -- though it took me a while to actually notice it!

WOW!
Dude you were here before I was.  How did you stand the site in those "early" days?  
As far as how I "found" the site, it was more like FOUNDED for me... LOL!
They just built it around me.... Good job fella's.  No need to choke anyone today...

Yeah Crypt I think Songwtr has the forum and maybe us confused with theJawa, they were around in 98 I believe. The forum was probably there too, the one we shared.

I found the site through an internet search program about 3-4 years ago, right before it's first B-Day.  I saw all the reports coming in and people helping others, but mostly the reports, and I was hooked.  You are my home page and has been ever since.  I remember General Vaughn, he was a nice guy to me and got me the very first micro machine Millenium Falcon & Imperial Landing Craft at a local KB from up north, both at clearance prices, when these were selling for $100 a pop on ebay.  That one transaction sealed the deal for me about how great this site was and still is! 8)  And that my friends makes me a Trooper through & through!  My loyalty will always be here, even through all the staff changes, etc.

I found the forum, when I noticed that it was no longer attached to the Jawa's forum and inquired about what was going on.  It's great that you got on your own, to continue to grow and establish your identity.

About two years ago I was looking for a halloween costume(Boba Fett) for my son and ran a search for one. I ran into the then Jawa-Sandtrooper forums and Starfox hooked me up with the costume. Been here ever since ;D

I've always felt I'm a Jawa in Sandtrooper armor ;)

Not quite the way I found it but close.  I actually recruited Dustrho back in the day at another  SW site. ::)  I saw that he had left there and found out there was a new forum here and joined up.  I also work at an SW site as well.

I'm not really new here, but I never saw this thread before, so here's my post:


First of all, how did you hear about Sandtroopers.com?

I didn't hear about it, I stumbled across it.  I was using google to find sandtrooper armour for sale, this site came up, and I here I am!

How long have you been visiting our site?

I don't know, I'm guessing around...4 months.  I think.

Secondly, how did you hear about our new forums?

I didn't, I found the forums first, then the site.
