OMG...I'd forgotten about that. The race to #1 and 10,000 posts. If memory serves, and I'm sure Rob Hal will correct me, DEA beat us there. Then Rob Hal and I were in a race for the second place. He barely got ahead of me.

But in the end, I won the Spam Queen crown.

The comments were hilarious....I had forgotten.

Elitist (See, I haven't forgotten THAT ):

If I remember the thread correctly, a 'C' was a pretty good grade. But I certainly recall your moderating skills being worthy of at least a 'C+' ...
C sucks. A C means that you merely showed up. For my dedication A+. For my presence, A. For my bad temper, D.

Oh well....now I see. But I'd still argue strongly for a B- at the least.

God, I miss DEA. He was loads of fun. And Captain Decker and his love for "Arena." And hot-tempered Teelie. He and I finally goaded Twain into a warning once. Of course, Twain had done that to me.

Crazy times. Twain was fine. He was fun to provoke and not a bad guy...just a bit crankier than I was, which I must admit, takes doing.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Mine is '222'.

Guess its that high because I joined in January 2001. God I've wasted a lot of time here.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I bet 90% of DEAs posts where complaints about how he was only #2
And I don't miss him at all. He was such an arrogant self-centered descendant of a popular pet.


We totally forgot about [FONT=Arial]where'sSaavik?[/FONT] in this thread! Is he/she still around (I believe it was a female poster)

That Top 50 list was really a bad idea, wasn't it?

I'm fairly confident that DEA reached 10000 first. I'm not so confident that I reached it second. I had vowed that I would top the list some day, but cleaning up the mess that was the TNG forum was a full time job.

Seeing that archived list brought a tear to my eye... so many names I had forgotten, so many friends from a what seems like a previous life. I really do miss this place.

Except for all the newbies. Old guard forever!

Re: Any old timers still around?

I think you JUST beat me to the number 2 spot, but I got to number 1 before you did, if you ever did. I don't think you did. I held on to it for a while.

Ah, it was harmless fun. I don't have the time or inclination to be online as much as I did back then, but during a time when I had health issues and was stuck home and couldn't work or do much of anything, the Internet was a godsend.

I had loads of fun here.

Reading through this thread, there were so many names I didn't recognize. Then I realized the Christmas name changing horseshit . . . I'll try again in a month.

I don't recognize most of the people being talked about, with or without Christmas names.

That screencapture brings back memories, yes siree....

Old school Trek BBS had its aesthetic charms.

Re: Any old timers still around?

the new "old blue" template isn't all that bad either. The colour scheme fits, only the icons are different and the [insert un-ladylike vocabulary here] ads take up far too much space.
The thread/ad ratio of 2.7 : 1 (2:1 if you don't count the username column but only the posts themselbves) is not exactly flattering for us posters. Personally, I'd like to be at least 3 times as important as an ad

Naaah, when you feel nostalgic you'll be back. Or if - like in my case - your friends urge you to return.
