Hello Everyone

Postby TwinChargers » Tue Jan 20, 2009 10:54 am

Hey all, my name is Brian, and I have a classic gaming addiction.

Just kidding (somewhat). Decided to hit up these forums, since one cannot seem to get enough retro gaming goodness, right? I guess I'd be considered an amateur collector to most that will spill onto this site though. Heres a list of what I currently have-

Unisonic Pong System, Atari 7800, busted NES, Sega Mastersystem, SNES, a couple of Genesis', N64, PS1, PS2, Xbox and GameCube. For handhelds I have a Lynx and a Gameboy Micro.

I grew up with the 2600 and a massive collection of games that I absolutely loved. Nowadays I'm trying to collect back all of which I've lost throughout my past, and picking up a few things here and there that I thought were interesting. I find that I talk more about gaming than actually playing games, but that's alright by me. Being a father of 2 beautiful girls, I don't have tons of time to play anyways. I still actively collect and search for games for all my systems though.

Hope to see you all out on the forums real soon!

Welcome! I find myself in the same situation sometimes. I collect more than I play lately it seems. Hope that can change. :)

Hey, how have you been! Glad you're back. It's a ghost town around here, but I wanna get the forums at least somewhat back to a normal rate. Just got a Wii U Zelda bundle and I'm feeling inspired to get back into my favorite hobby. :holding-triforce:

I have no clue how you'd get the old group back and posting, but it would be nice to see some old familiar faces around here.

How did you get the ball rolling in the first place? Perhaps give those old strategies a go again?

I initially started talking about Zap! on Digital Press, Atari Age, and many other forums. Now that I think about it, I'm lucky I wasn't banned. :D I had been thinking a little about my Facebook Page, that had been stuck at around 24 "Likes," despite being around for two years. Last week, I started telling all my friends about it. A week later? A pathetic 8 more Likes, to 32.

I was messing around and started to advertise on Facebook. You state your budget, and they do the rest. I put an ad up yesterday for $10 a day, stated to run into next week (I may extend it). The result? In 30 hours or so, I went from 32 Likes to 177 as of now.

I'm not going to stop until it is in the 1,000's, and once it is, I'll start advertising the forums. You can also advertise posts, so I'll post about the forums, and pay to have the post seen by tens of thousands. Anyway, if you haven't done so already, please "Like" the Page, it's in my sig below.

Thanks! Right now we don't have many followers at all, but did you see how many Facebook Page Likes we have? Currently it's at 1,144. Not bad considering there were 24 two weeks ago. :mariohammer:
