Re: Any old timers still around?

I guess I'm an old timer, been here since 2001. I recognize several of the "old names" that are thrown around. Though I"m not sure people would really remember or know me as I'm kinda "under the radar" and never really got into it with many people (i.e. heated debates or stuff like that, I've always enjoyed reading comments here though).

Plus I'm the kinda poster that drops in and out. For instance I just recently came back after a hiatus from late 2009, and before that I hadn't been around since about 2006. But I was here a lot back in the early 2000s. I remember maybey about 10-12 years ago myself and some other posters got into some big trouble for hassling the Voyager crowd a bit too much. We repeatedly spammed the VOY forum with "Janeway needs to be raped to let her character grow like Kirk, Picard and Sisko" threads (hey we were all more immature) and it pissed off a lot of the VOY fans, especially the women at the time. There was one guy, I forget his name who kept insisting that VOY fans were all from England b/c the English are known for bad taste in TV and they should be banned from acquiring American citizenship and such. The VOY bashing got pretty out of hand in those days as there was a lot of fan outrage at VOY for sinking the franchise. There were many complaints and finally the mods took action.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Welcome back, Jobi! Hang on a bit this time - the board is quite nice atm. I particularly recommend the Flaptains' Lounge. There are quite a few incredibly nice Fleet Captains right now. I so regret that I'll get promoted in a few posts I'm really tempted to ask Bonzie to arrange a little accident to my postcount


Congratulations to Unicron who's been here for a decade now!

And I just discovered that I missed my own back-1-year anniversary on May 1st LOL (talk about Altzheimer...)

YAY! Go, oldtimers!

Re: Any old timers still around?

I joined for the first time in 2001 under a different username, just as Enterprise was coming out. I remember the Reed Rage threads and some of the early shipping wars.

Then, my old account having lapsed, I rejoined in 2003. I was a finalist in one of Katie and Jethro's Great Miscellaneous Competitions, and may even still have some of my entries floating around somewhere.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Those early Enterprise 'shipper threads annoyed the crap out of me at the time but I eventually looked back on them rather fondly. Back when the ENT forum stretched multiple pages and there were at least a dozen threads at any given moment dedicated to one character snogging another one it could be kind of irritating to slog through the 'shipping to get to threads with meatier content, but after the show was prematurely killed off and the forum slowly withered to the relatively quiet state it's in now I learned to appreciate the more hectic and goofy days when we had ten different threads about T'Pol's bad wigs or Malcolm's butt.

My 12th anniversary went by a couple days ago. Hard to imagine!

Re: Any old timers still around?

12 years. It never seems like that long, but when I realize that Voyager still had about four or five new episodes left to air when I joined up it all starts to fall into place and make sense.

It's been twelve years. I think "Author, Author" or "Friendship One" was the Voyager episode that aired the week I joined the board.

Re: Any old timers still around?

My first thread was about it being time for Trek to have a gay main character. It was not well received, I think largely because there had been a whole bunch of discussions on the exact same topic in the preceding few months. (Probably because Enterprise represented the first major influx of new main characters in seven years.)

I remember your first name- Mr. Gleep. Oh, God, those shipping wars were fun.

Hey, I'm #64, apparently (although I remember that I had to register again after the Great Board Crash) How many of you were around before me and are still active, I wonder?

It's funny, because it's never been discussed since, so I guess you settled it.
