Found out about it in 1995 (and thus my vote).

Didn't start using it until 1996.

1993, but didn't glom onto the AOL community until a year or so later. Made small, personal mods for the family to play as side adventures to the P&P game we had going.

What if you've never played/used it? I first downloaded it a month or two ago, and loaded it straight into IDA Pro, but I've not actaully ran it yet...

edit: Just noticed the "found out about" clause, and the new 2010 option.

Three easy steps:

  • Install UAShell
  • Load a good UA mod and play it
  • Ask ProphetSword if he can include a "2010"-option in the poll ;)

I put 2009, which was when I first actually starting playing my first module.  From the file dates on my PC, though, it was 2007 when I downloaded it along with various other abandonware games.  I let it sit idle for a while, not realizing there were tons of adventures awaiting.  For whatever reason, almost 2 years later, I went Googling FRUA, discovered Rosedragon and the forum, and the rest is history.  The rest being most of my free time playing FRUA mods.  HA!

saw it in a store back in high school (1993 I think...). had played various goldbox games before and just HAD to have it.
Didn't find out about the groups of people who modded until years later, after I got my first internet connection.

I found it in 1993 (or was it 1994? can't remember). I was absolutely enthralled with the idea of generating your own adventures. I developed lot's of modules in those times (mostly trash that do not deserve to be sent anywhere), but since there was no wide-spread Internet in those times (only some BBSs) the only way was giving my modules to my friends in the hope they will play them. Ahhh.... I hope I find them somewhere, at least to bring back old memories.

For me I played Legends of the Red Dragon on BBS back in the 1990's (I was never really introduced to the D&D games then) then in 2008 through telnet and internet I started to play LORD again. 

During 2008 I read a BBS forum message (during LORD gameplay) about a guy using dosbox to play old dos games. I loaded boxer on my Mac discovering UA and other games at that time.

However at the time because I like the text side of gaming (looking or a LORD like game) I only really played SSI's Wizards crown. But in 2010 I played the Krynn series and downloaded a few modules for UA. But now I'm really enjoying the Gold Box series etc.
