Re: Any old timers still around?

I think Flukie was heavily involved in the sloth avatars during the summer of 2003, thanks to the then upcoming "Xindi" story arc that (I guess?) involved a species of sloth aliens, or some such thing. I dunno, I had stopped watching by that point. Anyway, the point is, if Flukie didn't *make* the sloth head avatars, he might at least know who did. He made quite a few for me back then too.

I remember the bouncing sloth head from a long time back. I just wish I could remember who first posted that and, if it was somebody's avatar, who had it.
*After a bit of Google-fu* Ah, it was Flukie.

ETA: Beaten to it. I guess I was being too SLOTHY.

Alright, my memory isn't totally shot yet. That's good to know.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Ah. Thanks guys. It does kind of sound like a Flukie idea when you think about it.

I do remember that one of our female posters used that sloth avatar with a pink bow on its head, but unless one of us is a Bruce Lee at Google Fu I don't know if we'll ever remember who had the pink hair bow sloth.

It was cute as hell, though.

Speaking of Flukie, he has some old Lost forum related stuff on his website, such as a LOST: TrekBBS comic and LOST: Trekbbs: The Video Game. I always did remember him being the creative type.

Why am I thinking Blablover5. I'm pretty sure she had a couple that wasn't of a black lab once in a while when she still posted here. She's from Nebraska where they have those

Where the hell are the archived episodes of TrekTonight, BTW?

Hah, I still have a zip file that Hunter X released at one point that contains a bunch of those. Looks like it has episodes 1-9, Admirals in Space, and a couple Christmas specials.

You're the unholy child of Bruce and Jackie Chan, yo.

That was damn fast...thanks! I had totally forgotten about the pink cheerleader pom-poms.

Me too. I haven't watched any of them in years, though.

I signed on on Dec. 29, 2002. Does that make me an old-timer?

And of course ELECTRICAL SUPERSTORMS!!!
I don't remember the Electrical Superstorms, but I do remember the whole Dragon ad that was on the boards for a while. God that was annoying.

Also, if we're going to talk oldtimers, I would be remiss to not mention 4 people (One of whom might still post here but I don't know)

Kor
8-4-7-2 - One of the more opinionated posters I remember
Hammer - Had an unhealthy crush on Gates McFadden
Good Will Riker - Probably the only one I know who liked Riker with no beard.

Those were the days.

I joined up during the Great Voyager/Enterprise("Series V") Membership Surge during the spring and summer of 2001. Next April marks my 12th anniversary on the board.
We signed up two days apart and for pretty much the same reasons.

I was 29 when I registered and in 10 days I'll be 41.

Mine's not. :P

Member number does indeed go up sequentially, so the lower the number, the earlier the reg date. It's not much good as a precise gauge, though, since a lot of long-inactive and never-active accounts were purged with the move from UBB.threads to vBulletin. (My member # was originally 15114, but since early 2008 it's been #1490.)

ARGH! Now you've got me rackin' my brain too.
The longtime wearer of the disco-lights head-bobbing sloth avatar was mcmac, I'm pretty sure, although Flukie might have had a hand in making it that way - I just don't recall. It seems the animation didn't survive the software change, though.

Also remembering Miss Thang's "Slothura" av, which originated during the same ENT forum Sloth Wars.
