How long did you lurk here before you started posting?

23 Dec 2015 00:37

I'm curious.

My first memory here was the outrage at Leipi wining Suisse, probably the GOAT moment on here :D . Then I was pretty hooked. Followed much of the 2011 on here because the stage threads were better up to date than other places I knew

I lurked for about a week and then joined. I used the main site cyclingnews for a couple years without even knowing that the forum existed.

Hum I spoke up very soon, but my welcome was less than cordial so I lurked for a while before testing the water again.

LOL I won one of the contests where you pick podiums and there was an uproar that this outsider came in and took the prize. The Pippo signed Italian Champions jersey is safe with me :).

Immediately. I came from another forum where I was very active, but it was wing-nutting out and this place seemed much better and more active. I enjoy the back and forth and exchange of ideas, as well as reading the more knowledgeable posters.

I originally joined because I couldn't decide whether to pick Purito or Nibali in a fantasy cycling game. So I made a thread about it here. :p

After that I lurked for quite a while until I felt confident enough in my cycling knowledge to start posting more.

I got banned by the jerks at Road Bike Review for being a bit cheeky regarding a certain former hero there. The forums here had a reputation for actually allowing varied opinions so I joined on the spot.

Started lurking in 2010... wondering if there were people outside Italy actually watching the Giro. Turned out there were, so I kept lurking. Started posting on the 2011 Giro preview thread iirc.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

I was on the site for a year or two, then I found the forum. So I joined after a couple of months.

I joined almost immediately so that I could change the godawful default posts-per-page setting.

I thought Iurked for a while, but then at one point I saw that I have one of the earliest registration dates possible, so I think I must have registered right away but then not posted for a while.
