Now I miss the past.

Wouldn't it be cool if each day we had a really old funny legendary thread resurrected to remind ourselves of the heights of fun/weird/hilarious these forums can reach?

Kind if similar to WWEs from the archives.

It would allow new users a glimpse into the past and what they're also in for.

It could be like a small box to the right of the main forums page or just above?

'Old Thread of the Day' it might be called.

No.

If you weren't around for it, you won't even really understand the true nature of the thread.

Also, resurrecting drama or spam threads isn't the best example to give new users (even though they come pretty spam-ready as it is).

That actually sounds interesting.

 

Is there a link you can provide?

 

I can check it out.

Pretty easy, just PM a moderator and ask about the premium membership of Special Members. :^:

We don't encourage necroing topics at the best of times, highlighting them to be posted in again is well, pretty much pointless and not going to happen. Nostalgia can be a great feeling, and for those that have been around for a long time probably feel it most when reading old threads they have contributed to or been part of, but that's where it ends. Let's not dredge up the past.

No I didn't mean people could post in them. I assumed they'd be locked. You can only view. Like a glass case surrounding a museum piece.

The past I feel is funnier than gta forums present. And most old members would agree with me. Is it just me but mature users like miamivicecity, ceedot, oyster baron etc all seem to have left?



Other news:
I also just found out what the special members group is.

I'll pass.

OysterBaron is still around, and miamivicecity is now SonOfLiberty.

Can you not just search for the topic, bookmark it and read whenever you want? If it was pinned or had their own subforum, most new members would have no idea what this would be about since they weren't signed up back then.
