Just curious, when you got older did to end up coming clean or do they still not know.
They're aware of it. They know I've met a few people in person from it, although I told them of this well after the fact. (Didn't attend a meetup until I was 20, so they didn't have much say)

Blablover posted so often that it took me a really long time before I realized her name stood for "Black Lab Lover." I always just thought it was "Blab Lover."
I missed the second L and though it was Blab Over, as in "blabbing all over" the place. I though it was a very humorous and self-ironic name.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I've been here since the summer of 2004, so that would be 8 years. I think that's approaching old timer, though I'd say being over the 10 year mark is a little more meaningful. I used to go by Yeah Me until...I have no idea when I changed names, I would guess in 2006. Someone I always remember, who I didn't personally interact much with but had a larger than life personality, was Arianwen. It looks like she stopped posting around 2007.

I don't post as often as I used to, mostly because I work full time now and have spent the last few years working on two graduate degrees, but I still lurk. It seems like this place (at least Miscellaneous) isn't quite as busy as it used to be. I remember missing a day or two on the boards and coming back to a few pages of new threads all lit up for me to read. Now it seems like I can be gone for a week or two and when I come back there really isn't that much new stuff. Maybe I'm just less interested in the new stuff there is, I don't know.

Enterprise's last two episodes aired about 7 years and 5 months ago. This is the longest television has gone without a new episode of a Trek series since the thirteen-year gap between the end of TAS and the launch of TNG (1974-87).
It's so weird to read that - over seven years!? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was watching the "valentine" to the fans. So bizarre.

Wow, I totally missed that as well. I always assumed it was "blab lover," poking fun at her prolific posting habits. I knew she loved black labs but the name never clicked for me I guess!

Re: Any old timers still around?

Let see I joined on Sept 3 1999, 10 days later the moon blasted out of orbit, and well, you know the rest.

Anyway, my oldest son was born the following January, and I can just look at the now 5'4" and accelerating kid to see how long I've been around here.

Lot's of coming and going, some losses, lots of exciting new, it's a good place to hang out from time to time...

Re: Any old timers still around?

Yeah, sometimes someone will mention another poster, and I'll think "Oh, I just saw them on here the other day! It was..."

Not been here that long myself only some 11.6 years or so.
I first joined about the same time as you did. During the big witchhunt in 2002/3 I left and rejoined only quite recently by request of friends.

Speaking of Oldtimers: does anyone know what happened to Freakish American Batboy? Last thing I heard was that he married.
And what about Phoonzang? He was such a nice guy! He got a new job, moved and was never heard of again
And is Bedpan Elemental still around? He (or she??) thought I was a clone of Che Guevara LOL!
And what happened to our Lounge Mod Stastny? I helped her with her final exams in German. She then took on a job in a hospital and then I lost contact. At least Darkening is still around, now and then.
And where is ElanaM? We used to have so much fun in chat!
And what happened to - oh god, what was his name again? 3 or 4 syllables. Started with R, S or P iirc - the nice guy who registered and administrated Trekchat? He was such a darling!!
And where are Evil Robert and Biotech?

What really bothers me is that I've been a member for almost twelve years and yet I can remember just two of those names...and one of them I'm not 100% sure if I'm mistaking for somebody else. Yet I can remember the momentary flash-in-the-pan trolls like Sisko's Ballsack and Clown Meat who showed up for one or two days, were banned and haven't returned unless it's under a new account and screenname.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I've been burning up the board by making 0.7 posts per day since June 27, 2001. I need some spamming lessons, I think, but I qualify as an old timer based on the criteria a few pages back.

But I like these threads where all these old user names get mentioned. I think of Huntington (sp?) with the starfish avatar. Black Dog and her racy, cartoony avatar. Some interesting people have come and gone.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Huntingdon is still around, but doesn't post much as his job keeps him very busy. I met him IRL last year. A very nice and handsome gentleman!

Black Dog posts at TrollKingdom, I believe.

@Cooleddie: I can't remember those trolls, but at that time there were a gazillion of duals around. Most of them registered by missmanners or Che. The latter had a dual ingeniousely named "Lord of the Onion Rings".

And where did Lizardlaugh go? I always loved her name.

Edit: remembered the name of the chat-mod! Rovinski. Does anyone know what happened to him? He was such a dear and friendly guy and I haven't heard of him in almost 10 years

Batboy may still post occasionally at Wordforge, but I wouldn't swear to it. Evil Robert still turns up around here, but not often. I don't think I've seen any of the others for a long time.

I see BlackDog on FB and LJ - I'm not sure she's been at TK recently, but I rarely go there myself. LizardLaugh was turning up here now and then for one thread, but I think it's been a while.

I'm sure I saw vedek loki look at the board a few months ago. And with LONAF, I decided to take a look at it a few months ago.

I've seen him around once or twice a year.

There have been several, but could be either Santaman or Danoz (who ran the most recent one a few years ago)
And where are Evil Robert?
Still in Melbourne, I think. I saw him 3 years when Emh was visiting.

I remember posting on Trekbbs when pc moniters were made of glass, windows came with a dos mode, and you were envious of a family member who had a 56k dial-up modem. lol
