Not Technically New, But It's Been About 10 Years (or so)

Post by Calypso » Sat Nov 14, 2015 12:22 pm

Hi!

It's been about 10 or 12 years since I've been an active member of the forum. I started posting here back in the Gunjin: Battlefield days. I remember it being a blast!

Anyway, I popped back in here out of curiosity, and am happy to see the forums as strong as they ever were (although sad to see the Battlefield has bit the dust). I'm equally and very pleasantly surprised to see some of those who I interacted with the most, Swordmaster Link, Saria, Galefore, Wyborn, among many more, still here and actively posting as well! I hope life has been good for you all, it's been a long time.

Anyway, that about does it for my intro. Nice to meet you all, and nice to see you all again.

Edit: Holy eff I just saw Cravdraa's name pop up on the front page. Wow! It's been ages!

Yeah, I think I remember you, though that was probably way way back.

Welcome back anyway!

I'm doing pretty well in my life, all things considered.

As for the forum, well we've gotten hooked onto Mafia, Jay left forever, and we have a Podcast now.

Oh Galefore has a Let's Play Channel. Thorio Brothers, it's actually really good if you're into Let's Plays.

Your name definitely rings a bell, welcome back. I don't think Wyborn is here anymore, though, unless he's a name change (didn't even know SP was still here at one point).

Just checking the thread to see if I remember you. And the name is a bit familiar. I never really touched the Battlefield, though. Anyway, stay forever.

I feel old.

Welcome back. You may remember me through one of my various aliases such as Tritoch, Metal Man, or Princess Zelda of Hyrule.

Hey Calypso, it's me,Troy McClure. You might remember me from such self-help videos as "Smoke Yourself Thin", and "Get Confident, Stupid."

SP was never here. What are you talking about?

I wish your name rang a bell, but it sadly doesn't, despite my time in the Battlefield/Gunjin. Good to see you back, though. [plain] :) [/plain]

My time was pretty short lived, not going to lie. I think I was active for about a year before the madness that was college hit. Whatever the case, it's very nice to meet you!

oddly enough now that I think about it your name does sound vaguely familiar from the chaotic 2001 time but I rarely ever left the NC forums

There was a lot of strife in the Gunjin back in the day which to me came mostly from off-site interactions on AIM.

Hey thanks for the kind welcome! We can be new to each other!

Edit: I promise that was not meant as dirty as it seemed after I posted it.
