Re: Any old timers still around?

If we had a like button you couldn't raise your postcount by posting like-posts, which I daresay you wouldn't like at all. I think you'd really like it better if everything stayed like it is now.

Does anyone still care about their post count? What an insanely pointless thing to worry about.

Too slow. I was already gone. Seriously I'm taking a little break from the board. Mostly just posting in the AL.
Nick: No thanks, been there, done that.
Agree. EFCL is the past. Now don't really have time for spin off boards.

Did people worry about it before? The only thing I worried about was the fact that I posted so much I left people behind that I'd rather had kept talking with in the lounge. I never felt at home in the lounge when I became VA, because I felt so alone - in the lounge that is. Most pals were still flaptains or rears. But now those who still hang out here seem to hang here in misc anyway, so it doesn't matter.

That was precisely the reason why we founded EFCL.
Misc is a nice place but the lounges are just more cozy, particularly the Redshirts', Captains' and Flaptains' Lounges.
I made a lot of friends there and quite a lot of them have even become my RL friends. I am not sure we'd have gotten so close if there hadn't been the lounges.

I think the fact half the board now have a custom title has kind of made the post count/rank thing less prominent. It certainly used to be something people cared about more, if my memory isn't faulty.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I'll be 40 next year. I know that still makes me a young 'un to some folks around here but it's getting harder to make '80s and '90s references in the forums without being called "old man."

I'm only 27, and I have a hard enough time making 90s references around people just a few years younger than me. I shudder when I check IDs at my bar and see that people born in 1992 are old enough to drink.

I know. When I stop and think that babies that were born the month I graduated from high school are now approaching the legal drinking age I feel like drinking myself.

I just got back from eating breakfast at my favorite diner. They gave me the senior discount...and I didn't ask for it. I'm only (as of this May) 43!

Indeed. Back in the late 20th century there were some shockers. There was one particular twit who posted a thread titled "will I be the first rear admiral?" and proceeded to spam the place up...



Speaking of getting old - I just hit 31! I was still a teenager when I signed up. Still check the site daily. Although my post count is now a shadow of it's former stratospheric level.
