The Admirals' Lounge used to be a hive of frenetic activity just a few years ago. We had several pages of current threads that were being posted in at any given time and the traffic in and out of the AL was constant. It was a happenin' spot on the boards, that's for sure.

Things have slowed down a whole lot since then. I believe that right now there's just one page of threads in the AL menu and it's not even three-quarters or even two-thirds full. Activity over there has really trailed off in the last couple of years and I don't think there are more than just a few active threads at any given moment. Still, it's a place with a whole lot of fond memories.
I use to participate a lot in the lounges but lately I rarely post at all. I'm most active when I'm on vacation, that's because the wife won't let me do anything but relax.

I like the lounges in small doses. Pretty much only like the check-in thread to see what people are up to. I like interacting with posters on a smaller level like that, but I can't stand game threads and such. The lounge has been a very supportive place for me and I'm sure many others could say the same, so it's definitely appreciated.
I feel the same way, and it's one of the reasons why whenever I say I would post more in the lounge, that ends up not being the case. I like the idea of the lounges being a more intimate misc forum to get to know people who are the same level as you and feel comfortable with the place as a whole. Then when you get up to the Admiral Lounge and there are no more lounges after that, it almost becomes unnecessary because it's pretty much game threads. I don't even post in the check in threads anymore.
Ditto!

But I like the inspirational thread titled "What are you Watching?"

Re: Any old timers still around?

hmm, there are two possible solutions: either you wait another decade or two till I have made it to Admiral and bring some fresh air into the lounge, or you all ask Bonzie to demote you so that you can get back to the lower lounges and make new friends and have new fun. Just going through option #2 myself in some manner, I can honestly recommend it. There are a lot of awfully nice people among the lower ranks who are well worth getting to known better.

Re. Option #2:
Being a newbie on their first rise through the lounges is made tremendously more interesting when there is an 'oldbie' passing by on their second tour!
When I was on my first (and, so far; only) tour we had Tristian (now: StarMan) to help make the lounges an interesting place

ETA: Thanks SM - I don't think I've ever said that to you, but your presence in the lounges at that time was something I treasure even today

Re: Any old timers still around?

let's not forget another advantage of the lounges: they always have the nicest mods
On my first round it was Stastny and Darkening and now Trampledamage and Orac Zen hold up that fine tradition. I daresay the lighthanded moderation is no minor factor in making the Lounges such a comfortable place.

I've always enjoyed trampledamage's pink elephant avatars. The one with Tony Stark was great.

Well well, look at all the fine folk assembled here. Tremendous seeing so many familiar names.

I can't believe I have been a member for over 8 1/2 years now. Although, I was absent long enough I probably shouldn't count one at least.

The lounges were a busy place back when I modded them (), and I enjoyed sharing the duty with Captain Ice. Lots of fun.

I kept thinking about you, so you weren't forgotten.

Also, I've been a member longer than you have? I didn't know that.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Yeah, I thought Praetor had been around at least 10 years. It seems like he's been a part of the big family here for a good decade or so.

Another good lounge moderator was Huntingdon. A great bloke and good friend. I liked when he was the mod there, or one of them.

It was easier to spam when he was drunk... Hunt's a good starfish.

This is true. He definitely influenced the mood in the lounges. Remember when he was the only lounge mod?
