Ha... back in my day

Postby DJ_Velocity » Sat Mar 26, 2005 10:06 pm

As I crawl this forum, I see that people have 3000+ posts! :shock: In my day, my 700+ posts was a high number, the only person in the 1000's was Icepick, and he and chris were the ONLY moderators of this forum. Now it seems that everybody and their mother plays some small role in managing the forums. It's funny to leave somthing and then come back as an adult to see how much it has changed while you were gone. Perhaps some of the real veterans agree

*cough* CoolSi, DeepsMSG, Icepick, PunisherBass, FlameKaBob *cough*

P.S. Flamekabob, I tottaly remember you, it came back to me a few days ago, when I was looking for old buds. Your avatar threw me off, in my day we didnt have avatars or sig pics, and when you posted somthing you had to REMEMBER what ther person you wanted to agree/disagree with said, as oppsoed to know where you can just scroll down and see what they posted as it is linked to the page you are writing your responce in

1) The only people who moderate the General forum are Icepick and Chrish. PunisherBass used to moderate it as well, but he was removed, and now he moderates everything but this forum (not including Development, of course).

2) I wasn't here to remember it, but I think that before PB was the moderator, enistein had that role...

Perhaps you should return as an adult who can spell people's names right? :P

Interesting choice of real veterans, btw

PB, who's had three posts in February... two in November... three in October... two in September? No offense to anyone, I'm just saying there are vets who contribute a lot more than the "real" ones you selected.

I don't.

It was good in the old days when the kiloposters were an elite few.
I still find it funny people junkposting to get to the magical 61 posts needed to become an OMG 1337 V373R4N!!!

lol, 61.

On the Nsider Forums the highest rank requires a post count of 37,213.

On those forums I am a "Gerudo" (18th rank-up) with 3951 posts.

That's either requiring a lot of activity or very long term loyalty.

On Nsider, spamming is VERY discouraged. There is almost always a mod online and any spam thread created gets reported, and subsquently locked.

The way to get a lot of posts is to participate in the official Chat threads.

PB has been here a long time, just because he doesn't post much now doesn't mean he isn't a vet.

xyzyxx - lol, try again next year.
