Exclamation YOU'RE ALIVE!!! As if this place is still here..

Elo!

I just randomly remembered chatting in this forum back in the early 2000s and went to check my old bookmarks to forums that are mostly long gone now, found the one to here and was stunned when it actually worked lol!

Check out the attached pic.. over 10years since my last login lol. That's some great dedication there lol.

A decade is a long time, so now I'm wondering if all the old famous posters are still here? I remember lots of chats with Resource Consumer (Keith I think?) about the great ACOL vs Sidgames forum invasions due to over moderation.. only for ACOL to go in the same direction resulting in everyone moving here. I remember endless jokes and duplicate accounts centred around inappropriate activities with sheep lmao. I remember some guy called Sir Penguin giving me endless cr*p about everything I posted lol. Jsorense, Koshko, Walruskkkch, Mad Monk, Venom & Darkstar come to mind too.. I remember they and others wishing me a happy birthday each year even after I stopped coming here regularly which was nice.

I pretty much completely stopped participating in forums over the late 2000s. Guess I got distracted by life... and drinking.. hmm yeah mostly drinking lol. But now that I'm old and boring I've been getting pretty active in the last couple of years in the various little pockets of gaming forums left on the net. I run a retro gaming website called Blakes Sanctum which primarily tributes fan game/mod projects to famous tv shows or game series that never got the proper sequels they deserved.. as a result I spend a lot of time trawling through old forums trying to find information of rarely seen fan projects lol. Usually most forums are dead and gone thanks to the world of social media, which is why I'm very happy to see you guys have survived the test of time!

Hope some of the old folks are still here!

Will have to go check out some of the old threads I posted in for some nostalgic reminiscing lol.

Not long, AFAIK. It was quite a meltdown -- I don't even remember what it was about.

Probably better that way.

Finn Willi (5) must now nearly be as old as I was when I started talking to people like Venom, jsorense, Greg on old, old alphacentauri.com forums.

And would maybe have been Finn Willi (1) then.

And we joked about how old jsorense was then...
