Now I see it was "it'll." Freakin' i's and t's and l's all blurring together! I getcha now... you want an actual full-fledged hexalist member, I sees where yer comin' from now, ayup.
4 pentalisters is pretty awesome, tho. Didn't have that back in the day, no we didn't. ayup. :::spits:::
Ah yes, a well-planned old-topics-not-probable-to-be-deleted 1k+ surplus at this point. :) But just a few thousands posts each Clock Day is sure to get you to new milestones pretty quick!
But JIC, yep, JIC.
For real! I'm usually away all July-August. I miss my occasional Birthday posts too.
Oh, I see. Summer trips and all, eh?
Summer in Texas (for me, at least) means hiding indoors with the A/C. Summer is when I'm MOST likely to be online, not least. ;)
Aaand have saved all the old threads and responses; hand them out to all who responded so we can once again go through the enjoyment we did of responding before as an intermittent and pleasant surprise! :)
yeah, I looked at his last post on the wayback machine and it was in January 2019, him saying "I haven't been around much lately" or something. So clearly he already knew he was drifting off before he pressed the red button.
Yes. Indeed. I've heard of this IRL place.
It's the lamest RPG ever written, don't bother looking into it further.
ChIknow. I still remember that Paint topic with both fear and fascination - and a certain relief that I'd never posted in it.
Paint topic... I think I have a vague memory of what ye be speaking about.
Still the biggest topic ever in the history of NG as far as I know, and thus also the biggest ever to be deleted.
Heheh. And there were other big ones, too.
Nice. :) I hear Wayback's heavily used within journalism too these days. No better way to check the long-time credibility of a source or specific content/quote/whatever.
Yep, someone tries to scrub something/rewrite history/clear up an embarassing mistake/faux-pas/whatever... good way to get at the truth/undo the paper shredding/etc.
Have skimmed through heavily in the past, but unfortunately it seems like a lot of sections here at NG are blocked these days, so the Wayback doesn't index them. Have wondered why. Probably legal stuff.
Aw... robots = no or whatever. There's a way to get around the indexing, but... while it would stop spiders and robots (early search engine google-ish deals) or whatever back in the late 90s, it also stops the Wayback Machine and that is sad.
Oooh you were there! Gotta check what you might've contributed... rare occurrence as it is.
I didn't post any, just read some. Main one I wanted to post in was the one about the recent shootings here in the US, and... better to not bother, IMO. My better judgement prevailed.
General is indeed the forum he generally used to frequent.
I am the very model of the modern 4-Star General, I blam and save and post for days and always hang out in General.
:::rhyming a word with itself but it's okay because they mean different things:::
I'm pretty much only in General and Wi/Ht myself, the former for postcount raises and quick entertainment; the latter for valuable interaction; long-standing usefulness. If time allowed I'd be way more in the content-specif cones though. And collabs. So much potential feedback to give; inspiration to fetch; content to contribute to...
The existence of that Request Account Deletion link is actually pretty terrifying. Accidents happen.
I saw that while looking at the account options, yep. Needs to have one of them big plastic cube covers over it, like a big ol' red NUKE IT ALL button.
