Haha. Funny to see that most of the people complaining about Demarest are now BUSTED. lol.gif

I don't think I was ever lurking around when he was here so I don't know enough to form an opinion.

notify.gif by busted yes I mean banned. Becaus that's what it changes the member group to when you are permanently banned. For example look at Demarest's member group.

He got banned a few months after I joined. But since I was getting into SA modding I talked to him a few times. He seemed like a cool guy and helped me alot.

most busted's have 6 stars - no doubt a reference to gta wanted level, I was wondering is it possible to have 1-5 stars or is it just 6?

k thanks, weird how his last post was in 2007, and you said he was here in 2007 as you joined in 2007, yet the thread which stated he was banned was made 2005.

My favorite times around the forum were from '03 to about '07. Ever since IV was released the place hasn't been the same, most likely having to due with a huge influx of new members and the fact that a ton of old regulars just kind of stopping visiting the forum. It's a bittersweet feeling, seeing how the forum really hasn't changed that much since I joined. At the same time though, it's changed a lot.

We used to have an error page that featured that image poking fun at the forum running horrendously, which it did at the time. I'm sure someone has a screenshot of the actual page somewhere.

The Forums software was patched up with so much stuff and the servers basically couldn't cope with the huge influx of about 200 people at a time so it kept on timing out with HTTP 500 Internal Error messages that I think it was Illy, customized the HTTP 500 message with the Hamster and message saying the hamster has fallen off the wheel, please wait while we find another one... or something to that effect.

But now the forums seems to be smooth now, I would like Post Wrappers back, even though I always manually put it on, I'd love the post wrappers back.

I am by no means an old-school member but i preferred this place a whole lot more before the influx of people that came when the GTA V trailer was released.

I joined right around GTA IV was meant to release and it was bad back then. As a GTA V led by I agree. 8 months listening to newbies bitch and moan about R* gets really tiresome.

I don't consider myself a veteran, but this place has changed a lot in the (almost) 5 years I've been here. Kinda wish I knew about it earlier rather than wasting time at car forums before GTAF.

I never "lurked" before I joined, well I guess I took a little peak before I joined just to know what I was geting into. But it was a little 5 minute browse and then I thought "hey, I know what's needed here! Some other guy's opinion. Hey, I could be that guy!" And so I became that guy. Nope, never been much for lurking, at least not on forums anyways. But as plenty of women walking on their own in the greater Hull area will attest to, I do enjoy the occasional lurking in real life. I also don't mind a bit of skulking, creeping, slinking or prowling.

I often wonder what this place was like when it first started, must have been pretty damn cool. I'm not even sure my house had internet around that time. I guess my forum was just my bedroom, and the posters were me and my 3 best friends. I remember the mod, who I affectionately knew as "mum", banned me a few times for the use of bad language. But she would never ban or warn the other users, always picked on me. Pfft talk about forum favouritism, that mod absolutely abused her powers.

It was stolen from Something Awful, I believe.

AFAIK, Camera in the Woods wasn't stolen from SA - there was a popular SA thread that linked to here, though.

That thread brought us a lot of traffic back in the day. It would've been around 2004, I think.

Coincidentally, I resurrected the thread in January '08. (Images are broken, sadly.)
