    This is to help with analytics, to basically get a good view on where our members come from. Also, it's a nice topic to discuss about =)

    Threads from a decade ago:
    How'd you end up joining?
    How did you discover The Hive Workshop?

    Clarification:
    Hive Affiliate / Partner - Sites like EpicWar.com, TheHelper.net, Back2Warcraft etc that link to Hive. Includes streams that link to us as well.

    It takes me to about 6 years ago, when I was a kid and also playing war3 that time. One day, i decided to look through the war3 files and stuff and I found the program. The program which changes my life forever, The world editor. I started place units and stuff. After a few months, I reliazed that the other maps have different models so I decided to search for models online and I stumbled into THW. The community and the resources got my first attention and I made THW as my first webpage to viewed every time.

    That's the story and that's also why I am still here.

    One moment I was on w3csear looking at the custom crypt lord model, then suddenly I was here. I remember I was listening to "G Gundam's opening theme" from youtube that day, on a dial-up(56k) internet connection.
    I miss my celeron powered PC *sniff*, and that Assrock AGI interface that fucked me over because my mx4000 couldn't run at 8x speed *sniff*. Oh man, the "tab" feature for browsers was still fresh back then...

    Anyway, that was it.

    After playing the Frozen Throne campaigns, I became curious of what happened after those events especially what happened to the BE in Outland then I googled for Blood Elf Campaign and found Rise of the Blood Elves then led me to this site. I was fucking amaze about the custom stuffs in the campaign and decided to give it a try to make a campaign too and World Editor journey begun. Lurking on Hive since 2013 and then joined in by 2014.

    A map I played back in the day had some custom models, and the credits in the quest log pointed me to here (in 2008) :)

    When I was at an hospital (with a powerful free wifi), I searched through the Helper.net after I found World Editor and its awesome custom stuff in maps. I stumbled here in Hive in 2011, I wanted an account, but I have no idea for confirmation emails, well anyway, I kept on downloading maps here and about years later, I was finally a user in here now and till this day.

    I had reinstalled WC3 in 2015, for I wanted to play the campaigns in *proper* widescreen. Last time I played them was on a 4:3 CRT monitor when Patch 1.20c was around. I also wanted to check out whatever visual enhancements had been created since then. I was also curious about fan-made 3D campaign screens.

    On THW, I probably first discovered @Ujimasa Hojo's resources, soon followed by @oger-lord's animated trees (in the Warcraft 3 HQ thread).

    Oh yes, Ujimasa Hojo's maps were really good, they were the real reason on how I found the Helper.net and Hive during about 2010 to 11. :D
