Re: Any old timers still around?

I changed mine to another name I use pretty frequently elsewhere, but eventually changed back to my usual "doubleohfive" handle not long after because people still kept referring to me as "doubleoh."

Yeah, you've been 005 for years now as evidenced by the 2007 and 2008 BBS YouTube vids with your screenname on them. I've always known you as doubleoh...I couldn't recall your other name if I had to.

I've been 'doubleohfive' since at least 1999 (according to my hotmail account)!

Out of curiosity how many other people here have changed their screenname over the years? I've been cooleddie74 since the day I first joined and have never really been all that tempted to change it. I know we've had a few people who've changed theirs multiple times and for very lame and sketchy reasons (one in particular comes to mind but I won't mention them myself...if you guys can guess then more power to you) but as the years go by my memory of some board monikers has gotten pretty cloudy.
As I mentioned before I used to go by YeahMe, and even though I changed my name I've never really been happy with it (the old or the new one). I've wanted to change it again for years, but nothing good or clever or relevant has ever occurred to me.

But still not good, huh? I personally prefer the old days.
Speaking only on my own behalf, the "old days" were much better I think, than they are now, for a variety of reasons.

This should not suggest nor does it necessarily follow in my opinion however that the current "days" are bad either.
Sorry, I should have been clearer. I wasn't commenting on whether the old days were good, or the current days are, or anything like that. I meant that I haven't been here long enough to do the rose-coloured glasses thing and be nostalgic about the past here.

I don't want to negate what anyone else feels, and maybe you did have more fun in the past or liked the people more. There are people that have disappeared that I wouldn't mind seeing around again, but there are people who are here now who I probably like more. But I'm also engaged in the board a lot more than I was, say, five years ago. It actually took me a long time to feel comfortable here so I don't think I hold any particular fondness for the past.

Oh, and someone mentioned that I seem familiar but I don't think I'm the person you're thinking of. There's a Kaestra (or used to be) here, and I'm pretty sure there are other Kestras floating around the internet too. But it's the name I've used online and I have never had any thoughts of changing it.

Edit: Speaking of, where's macloudt these days? Has she been posting and I've just not seen her?

I joined here in 2002 as Mr. Laser Beam. Then I changed to Babaganoosh for awhile. Since I became an obsessive baseball fanatic I changed back to MLB.

(Baseball was NOT the reason I originally chose the name, but it was the reason I changed BACK to it.)

...just like it is now.

Really, what I miss more are the people. Shatna, Angry Angel, Spiff, mrcoaster, Bears, even crazy people like MajorBarcalow and Enterpriser... there was an air of unpredictability every time you logged in. Plus, I think, it was easier to think of it all as new and refreshing and fun because we all hadn't described every last detail of televised and filmed Trek under the sun ad nauseam yet, so the "old-timers" who were here for those early days don't see much reason to come back with the advent of sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Doesn't Spiff still pop up time to time?

I've been always been Finn except in Octobers and Decembers, obviously. I had considered changing it a couple of times during my first couple of years here. But I couldn't come up with a screenname.

^ You totally mercilessly murdered the fun!

Actually, I have to thank you, if it were still the same, I think it would be a hell hole! All that nonsense was funny for about 5 minutes, if you were under 20 in age/IQ () and then the trolling gets really old. Clearly, with you, they messed with the wrong marine.

I've thought about it, particularly since the second half of my screen name was a shortened version of a name I used in IRC channels before registering here and it never made much sense here. I've never been able to come up with something new that I actually wanted to use, though, so I've never bothered.
