Bballman23 here (regret the name change, oops), can't miss the slow-moving party. Loved all the old names so much I had to go through and shout out which ones I remember either from being AKs, hanging out on IRC/OoC/AQGD/Games, etc., etc., or just from a distinct name and avatar combo I remember. Helped me recall some good times with good people.
In order of posts, people I OF COURSE remember and got excited out to see: Prince Alteon, Digital X, Superemo, Hotfoot, toidiedud, Supertails, Rand, Yammka, SeaHawk the man, Xplayer, Ailifr, Travis T, Corvus, master, Puppy, DA Holder, Silver Lion, sacchi and UPP my Igneus brothers, kors, Solar Boy (always was jealous of that custom title), DUM, Smalls, Dragon_Koopa, Flig, UnderSoul, draketh99, Viking_Jorun, Anon Y. Mous, Lego3400, Modred, Dragon., Wallo (lol at using the moglin, used to be fun to post as them...like Corvus, very impressed you remembered that login), LightningBlade, darksampson, FC, Glais, Lkeas, Astral, HK 47, Zero Hex, Sir Nicholas, Beebote, Dragon Queen, sean.2, TreadLight, awesomeman167, Seth Hydra, aNyThInG, Deadly the Eternal, Trog, Afina, Wilderock, m415mike, Illuminator, former bossman Scakk, fellow AQGD laborer TG, Lethos, Suranjan, Exo, Guardian Patrick, Rheannon, Flame Shinobi
Think I remember but not too well: super_ruben, 10inchesjedi, flyingkidjoe, lord dracoma, lordkaho, zeke, el pardak, Fahniks, drDOT, Watashig, siris99, SirFanthor, Jecht, Minish Cap, The Extinguisher, Oddball
The few here that I didn't put, I probably have you somewhere in my mind too, just not immediately triggering! From memory and glancing back at my MtAKs until I had to end this nostalgia and get back to work, also missing the likes of Janusk, Evo, westward_ho!, Dev, The Forgotten, Kaelin, dfguardian, Calimehtar, .*. .*. .*., dragonkillerajc, Shirefolk -- oof, too many good ones to get em all.
Echoing all the others here in thanking you all / everyone else for making this place great.
Still fondly remember all the days and nights spent refreshing the help forums to earn my Helpful!, starting creative writing literally just to get the posting privileges (getting feedback from helpful, great people like Eukara Vox and Circe and subsequently devoting a lot of time to creative writing! Who knew that stuff was still hosted here...), winning the monster design contest with the Czard, Igneus elections (sup Sacchi and UPP), racing to post Encyclopedia entries (IMR always won), getting the invite to become an AK, AQGD moderating when it was crazy (sup Scakk/TG), ridiculous spam in the AK forum, trying to mod Games as a then-total outsider, writing for The Zardian, being intimidated by Lord Barrius/westwing/the mathy AQ game balance crew, all the IRC nights, so much more.
Such a cherished several years in my teens that really made a difference in my life, this forum was such a better place than so much of the internet has become today. Or maybe it was just that time in our lives. Whatever the case, all the best to all of you.
- bballman23I even remember how to cover up the edit line!
