Holy Shit.....TEN YEARS!?
« on: October 08, 2007, 05:48:28 PM »
So I was just about to start a post about how I really enjoyed the RPGFan Editor Roundtable and how I hope that we see content like that more frequently. I was going to make a comment about how I've been coming here for the better part of a decade then I realized......

RPGFan is 10 years old ( http://www.rpgfan.com/staff/former/g1.html )? I mean....not as RPGFan necessarily, but in it's different incarnations.

Is this right? Dear Lord......how awesome is that?

Congrats guys.....and thanks.

Ten years?  Just the right age for a few things.

But cool!  Good job guys!  You're obviously doing a good job, there are posters here that have been here the whole fucking time.  I still feel like a noobie sometimes.  :P

Who remembers Third !

I discovered RPGFan when I was 16.  Now, I am 23.  Seven years... make me feel like an old man.

Who remembers Titania? :P

Yes to both. I kinda miss Third's antics though, while Titania, pft. Better off without her.

Man, time flies doesn't it?  I swear, I can barely remember when I was the board n00b instead of the board tyrant. :P

Remember Conformer?  Remember the days when Mike posted outside the staff boards?  Remember Neal's legendary masturbation thread?  Good times, baby.

I think I miss harassing Liz via the Mailbag the most, though. :P

Man, I've been here a good five years now. Geez.

I won't mention the first few weeks of my time on the board :P
I had a stupid dream
that I could change things.

If fellow whinging brit Degs has been around 5 years, I must've been here, what, 7?

Ah, yes, the infamous Third. Didn't he sign back up under a different name for a little while? And Mike... Mike Salbato? Chronologist? Yeah, I'd kinda missed him, too! Always good to have another Transformers freak on the boards! :D

I wasn't aware that it has already been a decade. Then again, I have already been around for more than six years. And probably because I have gotten old, I have to admit, that I seriously do appreciate the lack of flaming and fighting, be it on staff or on the boards.

I've been posting at the 'Fan since '99.  I was a whopping 21 years of age back then.  I know most folks remember me by names like dezo penguin, dezo, and Blademaster Dezo.  

Yeah, I remember most, if not all, of the people mentioned.  Who remembers Kadamose?  That guy was a trip and a half.  I also remember this one guy Oceanus who tried to peg me as a misogynist because of my ethnicity- he's probably the only person I've ever encountered at the 'Fan who actually pissed me off.  

I loved General Mortars.  That guy was awesome.  Another guy I was cool with was Drexle; he and I were the sole MegaTentists at RPGfan back in the day and now MegaTen has become so much more popular among RPG fans.  

And to think, a memory lane thread and no one's mentioned Nicole/Sumire?  For shame!  She was a memorable character.  Was there anyone who did not escape her wrath?  She's yelled at me a couple of times on the boards.  

And who remembers "sig test" threads?
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

While I do remember most of the former board members mentioned in this thread, I think, Tidius was the strangest one of them all.

Oh yeah, Tedius. Man, that guy was full of it. He even had an autobiography on Wikipedia and shit. That was pretty trippy.

He actually signed back up for the boards not too long ago.  He wasn't using the name, but he had something along the lines of I AM OCEANUS as his user title.  I don't think he ever posted, though. :P

Man, I remember Oceanus...  Him and I had a rap off in my FFV vs FFIX thread.

God, some good times on these boards.  DR, you remember when Tony put up that colaboration of himself, you, Vil, and myself up in the Creative Cornucopia?  And it was just...  Huge AIM logs of the four of us spamming Chrono7?

Man, speaking of Vil, where the fuck did HE go?  I was gonna make a thread some time ago asking if anyone knew what was up, but I never got around to it.  Anyone still talk to him at all?

Man, I can tell you what I don't miss.

Draconic Emperor Losfer.

Man, what a crapulent name that was.  :P
