Hey, I remember you Ya Mum. I don't think we ever spoke, but I saw you around a lot.

 

I'm surprised it was 5 years ago you were request-banned. Feels like I've seen the name more recently.  But everything blends together when you've been here for so long.

Slamman got a job!

 

240px-Donald_Trump_swearing_in_ceremony.

 

And welcome back, and all that. I've been doing the same, you'll quickly realize this place never changes... just the usernames lol

 

Ha! Well, I'm glad he's doing well for himself. I never knew Trump was a metalhead.

 

Thanks for the homecoming comments. The place really hasn't changed much, besides becoming more like facebook with its notifications and liking of posts.

Hey Kippers, I remember seeing your name around. You were quite the funny guy, if my memory serves me well.

 

I don't want to alarm you any more, but it's actually been 7 years since I was request-banned. Time flies...

Yes, I remember when they decided to ditch those sparkling gold stars under everybody's flag. I think I had three before I was stripped bare. Bastards.

I'm pretty sure mine were converted to commendations or I at least had one or two. Seem to have disappeared.

I caused enough juvenile trouble back then though, I had plenty of telling offs. I had admin access to the forum at one point and moderated some sub-forums. Good times. I'm 32 this week :blink:

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.

 XN22 (Jake, are you still alive?)

hahah I'm hearing so many old names today! Man there were some maniacs on here. 

 

Jake is long gone, as far as I know. The only person I can think of who might be able to reach him is SagaciousKJB. 

 

I move we bring The Pit™ back once a year like that movie, The Purge. Also move all D&D threads into there for the day.

I started out here as Shapes or Shapeshifter (I can't remember which) around the time (gtamodding) started on another version of the boards.

 

I liked the old theme that was used for gta3.com (October 2001?) and later gtavice.com.

 

Back then I didn't have the right feel for the community like I do now as I was a lot younger and had a short time span. I mostly modded the sh*t out of C&C Red Alert2, Delta Force Land Worrier and a number of Commodore Amiga Titles.

Hmm I almost forgot this place existed, I'm surprised I even remembered my login stuff.

 

I use to be ozzman1 but I apparently changed it at some point, never really posted much though.

 

Is good ol' slammy still around?

The only veteran I just about remember in is Lilweasel. I was just a guest here in 06-07 for a few times, finding out that sh*t was about to down in SanAndreas, there were bodybags, leatherface, photoshopped bigfoot, pigsy, ufos, some fake crap and the scary x files theme running in the youtube video background.

Well, maybe not a veteran of sorts, but I used to have an account. That used my first name, and that was back when I was watching Teen Wolf...two years ago. I'm not linking for privacy, but it didn't go well - I necroed a thread about 'El Sondito', and got that locked, and managed to annoy pretty much everyone with my pop culture references. I think I only made two posts before I fled back to ModTheSims.info.

Then some time this year, I fire up the slow-as-balls, 32-bit for some reason, gaming computer, and wipe my GTAãłł history from it. I try modding GTA SA, but it breaks. So then I asked for help, which remained unsuccesful, and then I try GTA IV. I fix that, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I used to lurk around the same time as well, browsing through all the interesting threads about glitches and weird discoveries in the PS2 era. Crazy that it's been pretty much 10 years since then.

 

I don't remember a ton of the names that regularly posted around that time, though. Not yet being part of the community does that. The likes of Demarest, lil weasel, GTA_Loco, pdescobar and EdisonCarter with his cheat device come to mind though as some of the experts of the series from that era.

 

Some things about the modern days do make me feel old with my 2011 join date. Like WTF, Raavi only joined nearly a year after me?

Did you have the same name on GTAzz/Gouranga? Things were different back then, the internet wasn't all that accessible for most so the quality of users was much higher, even though we were mostly young uns. Good times, good good times.

I've been visiting here for some time now. 2009/10 I dunno if that counts as an oldie. I don't think I've posted much that would be notable, mostly some bullsh*t thoughts and testing myself a little against strangers on the net without shame.
My name used to be finn4life. Maybe I'll change it back. This name is pretty horrible too haha.

Poor Jake, I hope he's doing well; he seemed to have carved out a pretty dark existence for himself. I recall him scoffing at gtaforums whilst continually recreating new accounts before being re-banned time and time again. He was a pretty cool guy though — great taste in music, film, etc.

Depends what you mean by "good time", but what happens on tour stays on tour.
