aramike Posted July 31, 2009 Report Share Posted July 31, 2009 I can hardly believe that so few of the old-timers post around here these days! I'd like to arrange a reunion of the folks that helped make this one of the most well-run, fun, premier gaming-and-otherwise forums of its time. So post here, old-timers and let me know you're still out there lurking. Same with the newbies. To tide you all over, here's my old-timer story: I found this place in late '99 (I can't believe it's almost been a decade) when I bought this damned BC3Kv2.0 game off the shelve at some game store because it looked like a cool way to pass the time. After trying for about a week to orbit a planet (hehe, look it up) I posted a topic on these forums. It was quickly deleted due to it being a topic that had been covered time and time again. Didn't take me long to realized how the community worked, and I quickly assimilated myself, even becoming a mod and admin of the old UBB forums. In those days there were 100s of posts each hour at times. It was almost a part-time job just keeping up with the idiots, who were never in short supply. Ultimately, I found a few friends here to help me out when trying to start my own business, and just generally an awesome supporting crowd. It's been tough keeping up, as I have a government job that sends me all over the place but there's still a spot on my heart for this group, these games, the discussions, and the gruff softy that is Derek Smart. Now I'm back in town, hopefully permanantly this time, with my wife and kids, and look forward to getting in touch with the rest of you. I think an overwhelming sense of nostalgia kicked in when reading through my PMs, which went back nearly 10 years and covered everything from CAT (10 points to anyone who remembers what that stands for) to the Remo incident(s), to a load of other things. So vets, reintroduce yourselves. Where have you been and what have you been up to? And new guys, help me get aquainted! Hope to hear from you all!
