It's been a long time since I was in the Commodore's lounge.

^ Same. Considering I've had access to the AL for around 95% of my time here. That is quite a long time.

The first few lounges are fairly easy to breeze throgh, esp when the show was on the air and we had new episodes to discuss.

I often forget there's still a Commodore's Lounge.
I miss the time when I would get promoted and there would be a new forum. There was a sense of that new forum smell, and it kept the whole board fresh from time to time. Considering the Admiral's Lounge was the last one (And there is nothing wrong with that, mind you) it just feels different. Also, I tried to see what goes on in that forum and even the Premium forum and it's not really a lot.

Very true. I was already in the AL, once I reached Rear Admiral. This was back in the days when the Rear Admirals were part of the AL. Took me less than 6 months.

LOL sorry, couldn't resist.


I totally love the lounges. It's a pity one gerts so quickly through the lower ones. I made a lot of (RL-)friends during my first round in the Flaptains' Lounge and now in my second round in the Red Shirts', Commanders' and Captains' Lounges.
It's a pity there aren't many active Commodores atm. The lounge is a bit slow atm.

Re: Any old timers still around?

me neither Can't recall any trek discussions in the lounges when I was there. There was quite a lot of spam and games, though. As Lounge posts didn't add to one's postcount back then, nobody cared.

Indeed. One of the few warnings I've ever received in my TBBS history, was for spamming in the lounge.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I remember so little about the earlier lounges but they were fun. I've been in the Admirals' Lounge for most of the time I've been on the board so any memories of the others are fuzzy at best.

Re: Any old timers still around?

shall we ask Bonzie for permission to re-cycle through the ranks? Admirals could be very helpful for the newbies. There are a few really nice redshirts - it'd be a win-win situation

Re: Any old timers still around?

I have very few -if any at all- memories of the noob-lounges, but during my time in the Flaptains and the Commies we had so much fun that I still remember it as being the best of times...

When I was there, someone actually did pass through on their second tour... That was a brilliant experience for us n00bs

And, just btw, you don't have to ask permission, all you have to do is delete your current account and register anew

Re: Any old timers still around?

Technically, I've been here since 2004, but I kind of hesitate to call myself an old timer. I don't talk or post an awful lot. I remember joining to discuss the Xindi arc during Enterprise's third season, and my junior year of high school. It's been a long time indeed.
