Re: Any old timers still around?

I left in 2002 or 2003 due to trouble with flamers and trolls some of whom appear to be still around, hence I chose a different name when I re-registered.

Plus: this one is next to impossible to hack - nobody could spell it properly

Who were you back in 2002-2003?

Re: Any old timers still around?

someone else
As I said, the flamers and bullies from 2002/3 are still on the user list. I'd rather not reveal my old identity. Don't want Bonzie to have to deal with a flame war.
I'll give you a clue, though: I am neither Red Whacker nor Lighter nor Che.

Speaking of oldtimers: what happened to PreatorX, Verteron and TLE?

I haven't seen PreatorX for a long time. Vert still turns briefly up now and then - his most recent post showing was in September. Teelie was also showing up irregularly, but I think it's been a few months since I saw him last.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I was Captain Napalm when I first joined, which seems pretty weird, now. I swapped it for a more appropriate Calvin & Hobbes reference. Funny to think that now I've been posting on here for longer than that strip ran.

I probably wouldn't choose it now, but at this point, it seems pointless to change it.

I think real life claimed PreatorX - I remember chatting with him a bit several years ago. A good guy he was.

On the name thing, most of my time here, I've been ElimParra, except that year I was ParanoidTailor.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I agree. He seemed to be a very nice guy. I didn't like one of his RL friends, though, who sold drugs. That's exactly the kind of friends an insecure teenager does absolutely not need.
Last thing I heard of PX was that he was considering to go to university, preferably somewhere south whith more warmth and light. He said he suffered from winter depression.

I missed Vert's last appearance. Ah, maybe next time
Teelie and his wicked sense of humour always appealed to me. I met him in chat a few times and found im a very pleasant guy.

Elim, weren't you an EFCL member as well? One of the very early members even, if I am nost mistaken.

MrSilver you are a new one for me. Afaik we haven't met before and we have no mutual friends, it seems. I suppose we always prefered different parts of the board and therefore never met.
But I do recall M'Sharak and SpacemanSpiff from back then

I was. EFCL was a great board. Well except a lot of the stuff with the Senate. First posted as Elim, and then as Joel.

Re: Any old timers still around?

yes, there was far too much red tape. I was very strongly opposed to all these board rules. I would have preferred something that's short and easy to remember, kinda like 10 board commandmends instead of 8 screen pages of dos and don'ts, but I was outnumbered.
The senate idea was pretty sound imo but such things work only with a small group. EFCL worked well first because it was a group of friends who fitted together. But then friend's friends joined, and their friends, which didn't fit in with everyone. It was rather inevitable that the board fell into fractions.

Don't ever change it! I used to love watching out for all your different Calvin and Hobbes themed avatars.
