I originally started my first account in the Summer of 2008. The site hasn't changed that much in my eyes. The only difference I notice is all the GTA V fanatics and the fact that I myself was once a very immature little kid.

One thing I remember from back in the day. Right now we have whiny little bitches who complain about "Mod abuse" I tell you what these little cry babies wouldn't stand a chance back when AnuJ and Turoski (Andy) would shut up the spammers back in 2006-2008. Those are two of my favorite Moderators of all time, they didn't f*ck around with people who posted stupid sh*t with smile posts. They would tell you to shut the f*ck up and quit posting stupid f*cking garbage.  icon14.gif

The main things I see on this forum is people like Zee, HydralicWarrior (incorrect casing), et cetera complaining about the moderators doing their job going after the trolls. Recently, a troll in the GTA V forum who had registered hours earlier that day (what else is new) posted a thread insulting the penis sizes of the other users.

You are acting like you have 10 years old membership here. By the way, internet was more better before that f*cking memes/trollfaces.

I do have a ten year membership here.

But to be quite honest, not as many people knew how to pirate photoshop back then and we didn't have 'meme generators', so w3 ju$7 k1nd4 t4lk3d l13k th15

I signed up in 2008, just after IV was released, but I used to lurk the forums and GTANET for San Andreas info in 2004-6, been involved in a couple of unofficial gangs and that's about it, I don't spam the place like I used to back in the day and now I just post every now and again. Never been called up to be in a proper gang though! sly.gif

Yeah, I'd take sh*tty meme topics over the best "1337 5p34k" topics. To me it really wasn't that much better if at all.

Instead of calling people who have been here for 10 years "vets", we called people "vets", that were here in January. And they posted more in the "Blargh" section.

I wonder if this place will still be here 10 years from now.

Can anyone tell me what ThePit™ was like? Is there an archive of it?

It's one question I've been meaning to ask but I keep forgetting. What was Mark's original username? I've seem to have forgotten it. confused.gif

I'm an 07 but had an old account in late 06. It's hard to remember what it was like back then. We were all hyped for GTA4 and there wasn't mass topics complaining about the lack of info cause GTA4 info was given out at a good pace. But i remember when the game got delayed in late 07 there was massive hate and topics made by annoying members. But as always there were trolls, spammers & attention whores. I did visit the site before i joined back in the GTA3 days but i didn't become an active member till before we knew where GTA4 was set.

And yes i was more immature back when i joined and i'm not as hyped as i used to be for a GTA game but i still find myself coming back here to check for info.

The Pit™ was an open forum for users to flame each other. Ostensibly to keep it out of the rest of the forum.

That sounds incredible.

And I only joined in late 2011 so I have no idea about the "glory days" of the site.

I've only been here since 2010, but yet I have a few memories of this place from the days (well, from the IV section of the Forums anyway).

Such memories as:
- The first GTA IV "Chain Story" (before members jumped topics to "Version 2.0" as the first one got way out of hand).
- The old Forum pain, "Dominico" (and his affiliated accounts).
- My old enemy "RandyTeh" (or Mr. 4chan).
- When Mati was "mati1501", just another member spending time in the "GTA IV Chain Story" (V1 & V2) and "GTA IV Who or What Am I: IV" topics.
- When cidamelo was more of an active member than she is now.
And a few more that have since slipped my mind.

And to a lesser (but still annoying) extent, the "Where Is The Blue" and "Genesis" topics in the V Section (or GTA Next I believe it was then called). *shudder*.

It seems strange looking back now at some members from back then who have since become moderators, and others who have gained medals for various reasons (Forum Contribution, Most Improved, Concept Threads, etc.). Nostalgia none the less for me. biggrin.gif

it was said earlier that he got arrested for carrying a small arsenal of guns, he was on prohbation and it was implied he was a peadophile. thats what someone said in the 1st page about this situation, I don't get much american news so I wouldn't know

I started in 2008 under a different name, wish I hadn't done the absence really. catspider.gif

on another note does group: BUSTED! mean that user has been banned? and the 6 stars some gta reference (max wanted level)
