    I was. EFCL was a great board. Well except a lot of the stuff with the Senate. First posted as Elim, and then as Joel.

    yes, there was far too much red tape. I was very strongly opposed to all these board rules. I would have preferred something that's short and easy to remember, kinda like 10 board commandmends instead of 8 screen pages of dos and don'ts, but I was outnumbered.
    The senate idea was pretty sound imo but such things work only with a small group. EFCL worked well first because it was a group of friends who fitted together. But then friend's friends joined, and their friends, which didn't fit in with everyone. It was rather inevitable that the board fell into fractions.

    Don't ever change it! I used to love watching out for all your different Calvin and Hobbes themed avatars.

    I miss Praetor a lot. I used to talk to him a lot back in the day. He told me that him and his bf were having problems. I hope he's OK, as he hasn't posted since April.

    Now we're back to having to read the name on the left again...

    Another one I've not seen in ages is Jethro

    I recall having seen him on the board but I never got to know him closer.
    I was, however, referring to PreatorX (slightly different spelling) : lanky guy from BC, dark haired, bespectacled, used to look a bit like Harry Potter. Last post February 2005 :(

    Edit: I think I found him on Twitter. If it's the right one he'll perhaps be back in a few days :)

    Oh, I know you meant someone else. I just thought to mention Praetor, since he is an old timer and one i miss.

    oic. Sorry, I misunderstood you. It's sometimes a bit hard to read between the lines of a non-native language.

    Don't know how I missed this thread.

    Well, I've been here ten years come January. Old timey enough?

    absolutely :) welcome to the thread!
    I recall the avatar but the name seems only vaguely familiar. Did you change it?

    I registered back in September 2001. I never was very chatty, but I came here almost every day to see what people were talking about. Fun crowd here. Then I fell away for a few years.

    Today I logged in to post a comment in another forum. First post I've made in a long time.

    Welcome back Urgent Sky. I don't think we ever met in a direct dialogue but I recall having seen the name around.
    This is really beginning to feel a bit like old times.
    Btw, what happened to Bedpan Elemental, formerly a Mod here? He (or she??) once accused me of being Che's dual, claiming my English was too good - LOL! Things certainly have changed a bit.
