I have only faint memories of it but I can assure it was waaaay better. Lots more traffic and nice users.
Nowadays everyone migrated to social networks, and most of those that remained here constantly fight each other (read: compare dick size) and scare away new users to get the attention they could never have even dreamed of back in the day.
But I hope those days return.

I say the pre-2009 era was better. I don't post much but I lurk a lot on NG, especially General and Programming.

Yes. Everytime you logged in you would get a personal greeting from Tom Fulp himself, you got paid for posting, and there was hentai on every page. You missed it.

Didn't start posting until 2007 just after the last redesign. I was still a complete internet noob.

It was a time when 100 + users were on general at the same time, New topics were created constantly and it was rare to see things that are commonplace today. Like the latest post in the general forum being posted 15 minutes ago.

I've had an account since 2007, but eh, I just think it's when you start to not be as active is when the forums don't seem as good. Kind of like looking in from the outside.

I looked at activity stats a few weeks ago. There's now about 29% of the active userbase from 2008 and about 24% of the posts from 2008. The forums have shrunk by 70-75% in 4 four years.

Regardless of all your opinions on quality one thing's for sure, the forums were way more active, and way better because of it.

The pre-2010 forums were like my home, I spent most of my adolescence posting in here, I knew all the regs, and had fun and stuff.
I don't really know how they are now so I can't really compare, but I don't think their much different, only different people.
What I miss are the collabs tho, we used to do just music synched collabs, and that was fun and easy, nobody does that yet, I assume because of the copyright stuff.

Back in '08 I plagued the BBS with that old account so there's no reason for it to have been better than now.


If you disagree with my opinion, you're wrong. I'm sorry you have to hear that...
