I don't think you are facist or even a bad moderator. I don't keep log of threads I think are locked without reason, one I remember is this one: danballforum.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=about&thread=889 I can't see "duplicates, flamewars, and [being] hopelessly off-topic" there. And yes, other forums do have nazi moderators and communities have split off because of that.

That one had a reason for being locked, and it certainly wasn't to stifle anyone's opinions. People were resuming the MotM without any staff permission whatsoever. If we wanted to make it public, we would have said so in the staff lounge. As it was it seemed people were assuming it was public, and I wanted to end any misunderstandings stemming from that.
Anyway, as Memzak said, this thread is hopelessly off-topic. I kinda miss Molopoy. We really should fix the Forum History thread.

Wow, has it been quite a journey. Back when I made a reply in this thread, I was transitioning from high school to undergrad. Now I'm just about to defend my masters thesis. I still have plenty of memories from this place, although there are plenty of things I forgot, too. I sometimes wonder if I took this place too seriously, but even if I have I also had fun!
More seriously, memories indeed. We probably all ended up taking it too seriously, but hindsight is 20/20 and all that. Retrospectively, I think that the large amount of both seriousness and drama was probably due to most of us being of the same rough generation and essentially growing up 'together'.
Could this be construed as the third return of Molopoy? (original joining of the forum, original topic of this thread, and the 2018 revival?)
I remember these old forums like they were yesterday, I've gotten back into playing Stick Ranger just the other day for the nostalgia, the later levels are kicking my butt lmao, wish the Priest wasn't so buggy and actually hit all the enemies within range. Oh well, I'm still having fun again, and I wish I still had the avatar from here that was that blue cat spinning in a circle from back in the day.
