Hello dear friends,           It is obvious by now that the forum is well and truly dead and I haven't found myself with much time for socializing on the internet over the past couple of years, so I am officially making my last post on this forum. Thank you for teaching me, by example, how to (and how not to) use the internet. I don't think an outside observer would ever understand, but I think you'll comprehend why I have fond memories of all of this nonsense and trolling. Some of you were very true friends, others worthy adversaries, and a select few some combination of both. I guess none of it means anything any more, but I get the distinct feeling that this was all worthwhile. To all, thank you.
I'll parrot this. This forum taught me a lot about socializing on the internet. I could have learned it anywhere, but I learned it here. I have a lot of fond memories of this community throughout the years, and I probably won't experience that any time soon, if ever. I hope I can still stay in touch with some members via steam. G'bye.
The sad thing about moving to Steam is we don't talk as much as we used to. I can contact everyone, but there is never really a reason to.
I quote Vertigo, "We should just remake a forum and pretend one of us are a developer on Dan Ball. There's a new wave of twelve-year-olds." ... That might be improvised a bit since I forgot the exact quote.

I think one of the best things about the past was, it was just that, the past. While I'll miss the 'golden age' of the forum (as well as the years following that age), a combination of us all growing up and a shift in interests... I think the best we can do (short of a miraculous coincident) is arrange an annual get-together (or something of the sort), where we all set a time to join a chat and just talk.
(I'll be honest, the only reason I'm here right now were because my spidey senses were tingling I was collecting past posts of mine for a program that analyses what I've written and spits out more. (a markov bot that takes a combination of bigram and unigram probabilities) )

Well, actually, we may not talk much on steam but there's an impromptu skype group that Null and Mono and I sometimes use. What we need is to actually make use of the steam group so we can schedule chat events.
