G'day,

 

I passed by a young man in a Rockstar Games t-shirt today and thought about my old stomping ground. I used to go by the terrible username of Ya Mum. Signed up over ten years ago, posted frequently, but asked to be banned and stopped visiting probably over five years ago now.

 

So, any of the old frequenters still around? Anyone remember me? I doubt I'll stay, but just thought I'd stop in and say hi, see who was still kicking around, etc.

 

There's a lot of names I remember, I won't bother listing all, but was friendly with XN22 (Jake, are you still alive?), Melchior, outcest, Funk3h, Wayfarer, Vito Leone...

All the oldies now play bingo, lawn bowls and bling up their false teeth.

Can't say I remember you (sorry), but welcome back even if it's a just drop in.:)

Hey Miami,

 

I remember you. If I recall correctly, you were quite the incessant poster when you first signed up (no offense).

 

Congrats on the moderator position.

I remember your posts being of such high caliber that the overall quality of the forum's content dropped by an entire percentage point when you left.

I've been here since February 2015. Am I considered a veteran? Probably not. Why won't you stay though? Is this place really not good enough for you? You seem highly intellectual and quite a nice guy/girl. You'll be a much needed and welcome change from most of the Negative Nancy's that roam this place.

Thanks for the comment Voodoo; I'll consider it flattering, despite the obvious sarcasm. I do remember you and your witty, elitist comments, a la The Precinct crew and staffing team.

 

Scrolling through recent activity, there's not many familiar names anymore. I've spotted GTA3Rockstar, Banana, Mister Pink, Typhus...

 

Is crazy old slamman still around, spewing rambling posts?

 

@jrl51592: I no longer own a console, nor spend much time on forums in general. This place was very entertaining to visit through my high school years, I look back on it fondly. It's funny thinking back on all that went on — gangs, respect lists, mIRC, etc.

Slammy's been gone a while. I think he actually got a job at some point. If you're planning to stick around a while, we could probably dust off your old account for you.

Hey man, good to see you back. I used to go by ThePinkFloydSound. You Electronic Music topic is still going strong after all these years! (10 years in fact)

 

EDIT: Just seen your later post.

I think you have to be here for atleast 10yrs to be considered a veteran. Don't quote me on that though.

Keep in mind, the GTAO section is actually a seperate forum and has nothing to do with us.

Been here since around 2010 or so but requested my own ban for personal reasons. GTAF always draws you back in. It's a great communuty, so enjoy your comeback.

GTAIV/Pre-GTAV era was the best time to be around.

Hey man, good to see you back. I used to go by ThePinkFloydSound. You Electronic Music topic is still going strong after all these years! (10 years in fact)

 

EDIT: Just seen your later post.

Hey mate, I figured it was you. Good to hear the topic is still being used. Reading my original post from ten years ago is hard to stomach; you're a kind man to have replied to such gibberish so graciously.

 

I'm curious but what is a forum veteran classed as? Since 2001?

I don't think there's any particular rule to classify who is and who isn't, but generally it is associated with those who posted in the early days, or who have been here and participated for long enough to be considered one. I would say a decade is a pretty good line to draw.

 

When I was here I certainly wasn't a veteran, and the fact that it's only time and not participation that I would call myself one is probably incorrect. The true veterans, I would say, are those who have been here from the beginning and are still contributing, such as some of those who have replied to this thread.

 

Welcome back old timer. You can have Ya Mum back if you want.

 

Your account I mean. 

 

Obviously.

Thanks for the offer, I'll definitely consider it. The 'Debates & Discussion' forum is a nice addition, and something that I could be interested in participating in from time to time, along with other community sub-forums.

 

Is there any chance of changing the username on my old account? That would definitely pique my interest. Ha

I've just started sticking my head back in here. 15 years on GTAF, probably coming up to 20 years now from the Gouranga! days. Good times, big part of my life despite years of inactivity due to adulting and such.

Anyway, I remember you, and Ya Mum ;) <3

Finally made it. I can quit now.

I wasn't a really good member back when I first joined nor did I stick around much but it always warms my heart to see someone from '08 or below (jackpot if it's the rare '04-'05 and below!) make a post. It reminds me that the internet can become a home for some. Man, I've spent so many nights on here and keeping real life stress at bay by losing myself page after page, thread after thread. Glad to see your return and hopefully you'll stick around. :)

I suggest taking a quick spin around the forum to get yourself orientated with the place again. We need to make a map where it has a big "X" and "you are here". Big "X" on the map would probably close your browser, though. Scratch that.

The rule of veterans is that everyone who joined after your join date is a noob and everyone before it is a veteran.

 

I don't remember noobs, sorry.
