It's so hard to pick between 2001-2003.
2001- when I first truly began the BBS addiction. It consumed me, and it was a time when it was a small community and everyone knew each other, no mods. Was an ideal place for a 14 year old then. Everyone just got along, spammed, and was amusing as fuck. I could never wait for my turn on the computer to go on here.
2003- I came back from my break then I think, and restarted my addiction i left off in 2002. The mods JUST came in, but it was a good number and set. Twas a time I was close with a shit ton of users, and was going over the old times with the mods/older users. Im not sure what exactly would make this the best year, but it just seemed one of the last years before the major flood of n00bs, and when originality was still pretty thick here. We ranged from long debatess about god knows what, to silly long fake rebellions and causes. Iunno. It was a year a lot of thought went into posts and topics, and I miss that.
