When I joined HF, it took me a month to find out that it has smth called Torrents. One more month later I downloaded my 1st torrent. And needed help what to do with that small file next xD

My 1st reason was gallery. Then forums. Only then torrents. But I don't use HF tracker too much. Only from time to time

Joined to get game mod support, only to start using it for just general chat as well when I mostly stopped playing the games I was looking for support for.

Funny thing is, when most of you signed up you did not have to be a member to download most of the material here. Membership was only required after a recent upgrade.

To answer the question, no.
And SE is correct. The recent upgrade was
when...8 months ago now?

Well, HTML or BBCode upgrades are all just Jargon to me, so I think I fit better answering the question.

I did originally sign up to download stuff, principally Mods for H-Games. Then, I discovered that there are forums and I started posting. What got me started was the fact that everyone else likes anime so it worked for me.

I only signed up to download the uncensor patch for the Artuficial Girl. I remember when I first came here, the first thought about this forum was "geez what a bunch of greasy anime losers, like, no way I'm ever going to mingle with these creeps". Haha. Oh lawd.

I first signed up to get patches for Custom Girl 3D, but felt bad for not posting anything. xD

Me wanted the Sexy Beach 3 Mods.
Once I found something about Artificial Girl on a Sailor Moon page and then I bought some illusion game copys on ebay.
With them I got the links to HF.

I joined up because I wanted to learn more about Anime & Hentai but also because no the DVD sellers in my town (pop 26,000) does not carry a single anime title, once I found a copy of Spriggan there for 4.95 on the discount shelf and there next to it a copy of Ghost in the Shell Innocence and Appleseed...I almost cried. Of course there is some other way cool stuff here, I fell in love with AG3 too.

I have a long term interest in Anime and I have learned a great deal here that has helped expand my interest and its alway nice to know others who share the same interests :)

11-25-2008, 04:32 PM
I actually signed up because I felt bad downloading all of the AG3 stuff and not uploading my own creations. :o I figured someone might like them, even though they were sub-par compared to some of the others incredible work. :D
4 post in I started branching out though, so not too shabby. :kakashi:

I really don't remember that being my priority when I joined up. It wasn't only till three weeks after I joined that I realized you could download stuff here. lol

Yeah, I think. Never even visited the torrent section in a long time now, though.

I was lurking before I signed up... I used to come for the tasty morsels of porny goodness that HF offered up... then I probably read a post that annoyed me or I thought I could help with... so I'll have signed up to comment... then returned to lurk... I tried searching for my first post... but I couldn't find it and am too lazy to keep trying :p

I admit that i was a leecher back when i first registered. I abused hf in so many ways while getting my torrent fix. Think it was 2-3 months till i started posting on a regular schedule.
OOO, I also have random disappearances too, since I've joined. Dunno why though, never say I am too busy.

Was looking for some anime related stuffs...then I remember signing up thinking it was a mere anime forum like animesuki/boxtorrents ^^
boy, I was wrong...
stayed for the gallery/forum

Well I'd like to say I came for the witty conversation and cross gender mayhem
but that would be LIEZ! I only registered for a torrent still remember exactly
what it was but I'll never tell ! not for all the Lisa shorts in the world . :p

Yes and no. The main reason I joined HF was to practise my English in a forum with people who shared my interests regarding anime and hentai in general. But, looking back, another reason was to check (and ocasionally save in my HDD) the images in the hentai section of the gallery and comment on the images there. I've ended up staying mainly for the community, in a nutshell.

As for torrents/DDLs, I've barely ever got any from here. I got, like, only 2 or 3 torrents in HF. Same goes for DDLs, I guess.
Speaking of which, I did upload a few DDLs here though it's been ages since I last did it.

Came here to look for anime and a great community. It was actually DirtyFinger's website from where I came here. HF was just a cute forum back then. A wonderfull young forum. With alot of interesting and nice people. And I stayed ever since ^-^

Came looking for an uncensored Imouto Jiro through google.
And stayed for the plentiful hentai-everythings.
The torrent section here is actually pretty lame, I mostly use(d) Btmon.com for just, well, porn.

Only decided I'd start posting because discussion beats the hell out of meaningless myspace commenting.

First came here for the torrents, then got interested in the forums for a while and was fairly active for the first 3 months or so. As of now, I've been becoming more of a lurker and back to the occasional downloading certain things. Spending most of my time in visitor chat though :p I guess in those first 3 months, tbh I was determined to get recognized or feel like others actually like me, but that's started to diminish now.

the anime chat section was good for finding stuff to watch.
but i use anidb for that more then hf now.

Actually the reason I joined HongFire was to get help with Maple Colors! :D I didn't even know there were so much hentai and shit :D Eventually I just started posting and shit but that was a while after I started getting help in Maple Colors! Actually I started posting because I was waiting for my posts in the Maple COlors! thread to be replied and yeah thats why I started up :D

When I first stumbled on HF looking for Sexy Beach 2 (and got to know the existence of torrent for the first time :p), there was no need to register to get stuff. So I had been lurking for a while. Well, since I really liked load of H stuffs and forums on HF, I registered to keep track on new posts. I rarely post (Look at my join date and my post count :p) though that has changed a little now. Still, Lurker/Leecher still I am. :D

Besides the downloading of stuff though, having a place to ask questions and seek other people's opinions on h games and what not, is useful though. I just don't post a lot. :P
