    During this I discovered that my oldest bookmark was for alpha protocol… just saying if anyone wants to make a successor to that game that doesn’t have all the jank bugs and crashes then I will post in a thread here to say “I think that’s neat”

    Read the forums on your phone at work like everyone else and you don’t have to worry about remembering.

    https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/156057/unofficial-forum-stylesheet-ye-olde-style/p1 still works, somehow

    I still use this

    As long as old threads use the new format(worded threads instead of numbers) and the forums aren't locked or gone(like chatlog and archive, though hopefully just mod-only), they still seem to be readable, based on my perusing with the internet archive.

    Some of the threads still work, some said they weren't archived, so who knows what the rhyme and reason is. The few I was able to view were mostly graveyards of broken images, anyway.

    I mean really, what did he do for us?

    What's that? Somehow turned a videogame webcomic forum into an actual community while keeping out gg/protorightwing chuds during their rise that occurred largely on online gaming related spaces?

    What a doofus

    Sure but in a context of discussing ancient forum past there are gonna be folks who had negative personal interactions with the dude and don't really owe him any personal-level grace

    20 years is a long time and some folks have relationships messier than Holiday Forum hagiography might allow, he doesn't post here anymore, maybe the harm isn't especially great in a tossed off aside here or there

    I think insulting someone is generally a pretty harmful thing to do.

    I don't think a vague "dude sucks" said somewhere I can't read it does me any harm at all
    pooro sucks...

    I still have my jersey!

    I also have this stupid username, because I won it in a name change thread coin flip, publicly hoping that I'd lose and Tube would have to come up with something obnoxious for me, but instead here I am.

    I do wish I'd archived all of our Bad Predictions seasons in some better way, we had some good times.

    I don't remember why the first letter of my name name is lowercase. Was it a forum migration at some point changed all the names to lowercase or something?

    I thought about asking in the various threads that would pop up once in a while to have it fixed, but I knew I would lose and Tube would change it to ExpEndablE or replace the Es with 3s or something and that would be worse, so I never did.

    The pinch in my brain is not nearly as bad now as it used to be at least.

    Yeah, this was back in the days when we had "Deputies." They couldn't ban (and I don't think we had the infraction system back then), but they could do maintenance on threads, and we had that big, juicy merge button....

    Tube was self-admittedly a dick. He said he was a dick many times. In his big rules post, he said "I'm a dick." I feel like saying "Tube was kind of a dickhead at times" is not exactly controversial.

    Well, we went three whole pages without it, I guess there's that.

    I mean if it makes you feel better Smoke Stacks isn't exactly held in the highest regards by people.

    I mean, there is that. No accounting for taste, after all. Every time I get into a multi page discussion with some of you it feels a lot like being a Judge who has taken the Long Walk.

    Honestly though, in terms of assigning value to your opinions... you are all internet people. That means you're not real. The entire point of your existence is to benefit me with knowledge or entertainment. You dance around for me, or you show me things, or you answer my questions until I am satisfied. Then, I close a tab and you all disappear. You no longer exist. You are formless, trapped in limbo until such time as I decide to summon you again.
    Technically that's just my LARP character.

    RIP Cronyx Ravage, we hardly knew ye.

    Deputies could infract, IIRC? They could infract, but that's it. Cause I think that's how they dealt with spambots?

    We didn't have an infraction system yet, we had jail or ban and thats it. Deputies could jail but not ban.
