Dear RRW, I award you this:
Even though your post wasn't inane and contributed to the thread.
Oh Hell yes. (I also miss Mirc and, in a strange way, Pannonius)
TLC, DP, SeleucusNicator, Wickedsmurf, Benderino (not really mia some of them, but haven't seen them in OT much).
It was a play on his initials and was meant to mean that he had already been gone by the time the thread was created.
Is Simon Darkshade(?) still around? guy with the frodo avatar, quite the character.
I sadly never really got to talk to those guys. I started posting (which is also when I began lurking in the OT) right at the end of ESB's romp around here.
Lucy seems to have banned herself for a while.
I hope she comes back.
Winner has been quiet too, obviously no mooslim/gippo/russki crisis lately.
I miss BasketCase, for pwnage.
What happened to BC?
banned herself for what?
I didn't really post with them, but I do have very fond memories of lurking through their posts.
I hope that people will one day miss me too...
...that is, of course, assuming that I leave CFC
Don't get me wrong - some of the new posters a re great, but the place has become somewhat less serious, more focused on personal issues and less on political and military ones. TBH, I may soon pass into the occasional poster category, but I don't see myself disappearing from OT any time soon.
I suspect Winner would return if some big geopolitical issue appeared
As Civ5 becomes more popular and popular, new posters will come over.
Posters also change. Some new posters shape up and post more interesting stuff after a while. Some old posters who were once very interesting seem to have tired and only post pointless one-liners nowadays.
There are probably lots of good recruits in the game and modding subforums. Moderators should move more of their threads into the OT pit.
Winner is probably banned at the moment if he's not posting.
I doubt people would miss me.
I think we should start inviting posters who've posted great posts in the Civ5 forums to come check out OT.
I think she is just taking a break for a while.
I miss Ecofarm. He was a special right-winger, in not only his qualities, but the fact I wouldn't facepalm whenever he posted.
I miss BasketCase as well. The right-wing caucus has shrunk, and I've been forced to take up some of the burden against left-wing hordes... (though of course, I do occasionally side with the enemy on social issues, but that's beside the point).
Looking at all the other posts in this thread... dang. A lot of people have evaporated into thin air, haven't they?
At least you all have me.
Having BasketCase on your side is not an advantage
Ecofarm is on permanent vacation, sadly.
