Funny, this site popped into my head, & I didn't expect to see activity, still traced across the forum from time-to-time.
@CH ... respect, to your thoughts, feelings & the mutual experience everyone has enjoyed on this site. Wish I could say those halcyon-days of yesteryear would be upon us again ... but heh, we'd need to get site moderation re-established, clean-out the bots, & then activity could, possibly, pick up again.
I do often think back on this place. I'm still fond of the memories I have of how I used my time here, to learn how to write properly/passably (not gonna lie, genuinely sucked at learning & developing, for the bulk of my juvenile years). I like to think I'm not too terrible at writing, these days :^)
This was also the place where I learnt basic HTML, more because I had a practical area to apply my little discoveries & dickings-abouts with the markup instructions (my profile). It really wasn't much, in the grand scheme of things, but for me it was hours of fun, every few evenings of a given week, & my heart is still grateful for this.
Clan recruitment threads, Multiple Sparring Chambers & goings on. I always loved the announcements about any general RPG, the events themselves, getting the entire site involved, they were always so exciting. Signature commissions ... lol, I did try to make quite a few of those, with amateur hour skills in Paint.net (& then got a very nice one given to me, by DW).
I even remember Iseijin, who seemingly with unlimited patience, taught me to RP & write more coherently, in a forum section I haven't been able to relocate. It was just generally so nice, to have that community.
Gosh, my account is 13 years old, so yes, me signing up when I was 14, is about right.
... Anywhoooo~ That's, enough from me, on my experience, for now :)
I do hope everyone is still keeping well, &living their best life each & every day :)
CH, DW, Peterson, XT, DD, SW, Lioness, AD, GF, Donut ... the list goes on & on, for there were many. I'll see to keeping tabs a bit better, providing life doesn't throw something out into my schedules.
I'm definitely going to revisit some of those 'My Skull' threads, they were a great laugh.
