I came here after speaking to Asmodeus just to write a reply in the "Where have they all gone" thread......
After reading through the forums a little, I had to make a new thread (in honour of days gone by) to say that this still looks like a fantastic community! I don't know why this place has always attracted such a special group of people who have no fear in sharing in fun and frolics and calamari!
There are still some of the old time greats - I wont name people because I dont want to miss someone out and make them cry (like Durf - he's always blubbing when he's left in a corner by himself for a few minutes!! It's his fault anyway! ) And there are loads of new faces (probably have been here for YEARS!) who have added their own little special something.
It's really great to know that this place is not only surviving, but positively thriving! I am honoured to have had a small hand in the creation of this place and it is great to see when something grows way beyond its initial starting point! I don't feel any nostalgia at all.... mostly because nothing has gone... it all looks just as good as it was all those years ago.... and better!
So *raises glass with one arm round the Giant Squid* Here's to you guys and I hope you all have many more happy years here!
Cheers one and all

I remember you... but you cannot remember me because I was only lurker back then with maybe 5 posts :smiley:
I still have saved SP Character Guides thread (1.09) that you started :wink3:

So errr. Just wondering what this has to do with the squid?

Your nick is familiar, I have seen the old-timers mention your name multiple times. I'm not sure if I have ever seen you to post though, because I have been here myself only ~3 years :laugh:

nex.... that's cool! I lost those guides many years ago through hard drive failure! I loved my Werebear - I could play D2 again just to play that character again!
Drystan..... what has this to do with the squid?? Arrr, where's the ancient warning tablet when you need it? Have you not been beset by the squid in times past? I'd be surprised to find that my old adversary doesnt lurk here still! :o
Lprman.... I would estimate that I left here in 2001? Maybe early 2002.... I cant remember for sure!

Hello Spearthrower, you were before my time but I have heard of you, good to see one of the REAL oldschoolers popping by

I feel like one of the ancients!! Isn't anyone going to offer this old geezer a chair by the fire and a drink to warm me cockles?

Gosh! It's alive! It's good to see that we're protected from the Squid again.
Welcome back, Spearthrower. Go, have a drink at the EMB, it's on Durf's card for all I know.
