    I must have had some sweet amnesia where that was concerned. Not that we should ever bring it up again.

    To be fair, a lot of those topics got really played out after a while, I mean how many rotating members did we have that reposted the "What's your favorite weapons for the Zombpocalypse" threads every month or 3? But I do miss that sort of discussion and the regularity we used to enjoy here. I even wanted to post a hypothetical "What would you do if you were in Rhodes' place at the start of Day" thread last year, but figured it'd languish in Dead Discussion.

    Rhodes offered a lot to be debated. The worst death in Day / Rhodes was the real victim thread hijack was a good Rhodes thread.

    You should have. It's a good question. One I don't think I've seen asked before.

    I've never been a prolific thread starter anyway, & I kinda feel like I said everything I had to say a long time ago in regards to zeds, in an odd sort of way. So, uh yeah.

    Hmm...don't know if I am proper old skool, but I discovered this site when I got a Sega Dreamcast well over a decade ago, I spent months here after my initial discovery reading the Hell out of the fiction section with the background music playing...happy, innocent times

    I also remember the great hacking, I contacted a user here and sent them a bunch of fiction I'd saved from the site on ye olde floppy disc (had a giant desktop PC by then).

    Wow...so much time has passed since then...not sure when I actually registered for the forum proper.

    Edit: Profile says when I finally joined 2007...I obviously lurked for some time.

    My first contact with this site was the fiction section as well. I remember reading lots of fan fic back in the day, way before I joined.
    When I was a kid I used to watch the Friday the 13ths films a lot, and when I get into High school I'd hang around on fridaythe13thfilms.com, which had a forum. After awhile I dropped the interest in slasher-films, but I'd always been a Z-film fan.

    I remember checking out the forums on and off again before joining up. But, and no hard feelings here, I seem to remember them being quite a bit uglier than this, hehe. Like a red-on-black ezBoard forum or something.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    I joined for the fiction, argued a lot with people in the fiction comments section. Grimstories if I remember right.

    I kinda wish the fiction forum was that active.

    Good to see everyone that's still around though.

    Christ, it's a lot more laid back now compared to some of the $hit that used to hit the fan!
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Damn yo! Browsing here on what was likely the first web browsing game console! That, sir, is geek cred.

    Uncle Creepy over at Dread Central used to browse here and on Kyra Schon's chat on... get this... WebTV!
