Past Regulars

Postby Egg » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:32 pm

Over the years FS had several very active regulars fall off the map. We've done a great job getting all the current regulars migrated over, but I'm curious to know if anyone still keeps in contact with past regulars. Here's a real quick list of people who had well over 1k posts. I'm sure I missed a few.

AcydRaine
AMDnewbie2005
Bowhunters
Chemgeek
Corran
cyberathlete
doomtrooper
Gh3tTo5oLdIeR
kenny_dope
Kessandra
Lenin22
powwow71
pweber5
qmakowski
ripfire
sk8wnec
squeegie
stalker_loner
stuffedewok19
suicideinvoice
Supercharge
The Dome
Trogdor


For whatever reason these folks left, but maybe they'd be interested in stopping in to a new user-run forum.

I know cyberathlete dropped in recently over IL-2 Sturmovik and stalker_loner was interested in coming back for good.

Damn, Egg. Did you just pull all that out of memory? It would be awesome to see them again.

^ A portion of it, yeah. To be honest, I didn't talk much with people outside of the boards, so I was hoping the rest of you maintained some connections. I know Trogdor works at a popular tech site, so he can be reached. Other than that.....I might have a couple old email addresses from buying/selling stuff.

I remember Kess saying she was moving on and had no real plans to return. Seems she made good there, unless she is back under a different guise.

I was hoping for a larger response on this topic. Those were some major contributors I listed. Anyhow, I'm going to send emails to the few addresses I have, as well as Trogdor through his place of work. I urge others to contact any other past regulars they remained in contact with.

Got your PM, Egg. Looks like the addresses on each member's public stats page is what we'll be limited to. No way to know if they're current. I can create am email with SP graphics and send it out to each one. Well, maybe not all of them. : )

I see Trogdor on Steam every now and then I'll PM him sometime when he's on and let him know about this place.

I've sent emails to 31 addresses. I included each one from your list and several more. Only 9 of them were returned, so hopefully we'll see some familiar faces (or user names) drop in soon. Thanks for suggesting that Egg!

I saw sk8wnec posted on the FS forums wondering what's going on... Did you make it clear we have new forums in that email, Fish? Haha.

In other news, Sqitso is still talking to himself over there.

AcydRaine - I miss this guy.
AMDnewbie2005 - He never really was actively around. We kind of counted on him showing up randomly. But now he doesn't even do that. Maybe he's busy with college or something.
Bowhunters - I think members chased him away or something, but I won't go there.
Chemgeek - No idea.
Corran - I have a feeling we will see him again.
cyberathlete - If we ever see Chemgeek, we can ask what happened to him.
doomtrooper - No idea.
Gh3tTo5oLdIeR - I wish he was back. I could ask him if he has Street Fighters x Tekken.
kenny_dope - He hasn't been on much for awhile, but maybe we will see him some day.
Kessandra - I didn't actually hear her saying she was leaving. But seeing as that she hasn't been back, she seems to be a woman of her word.
Lenin22 - No idea.
powwow71 - He mentioned ahead of time that he was tired of the forums. But hopefully he will find his way here, to the afterlife.
pweber5 - No idea.
qmakowski - No idea.
ripfire - Barely posted here in my time here.
sk8wnec - No idea. He should be here though?
squeegie - No idea.
stalker_loner - I'm not allowed to complain about members according to the rules, but without complaining, I will say there would probably be more drama with him here, between me and him. I think he's trying to move on with his life though.
stuffedewok19 - No idea.
suicideinvoice - He mostly stuck around for like one-two threads in my time here.
Supercharge - No idea. Who needs him?
The Dome - He was barely around in my time here. He may come back at any time.
Trogdor - No idea. But there is a way of telling if he's still kicking. It's checking Anandtech for whether he's still posting articles. Assuming you know his name, which I'm not telling.

To come clean, I purposely did not send Bowhunters an email. And yes, I chased him away - and for a good reason.

Squeegie's within earshot - I see him sign on XBL from time to time.

PowWow's added some fairly recent shots to his Flickr account, but I'm not sure if there any links to contact him.

Trogdor got married off and, if I'm not mistaken, ended his invovement w/ Anand some time after.

Kessandra was never who she claimed to be. I know that much. The 'devastation' provided a quick exit when the cover was blown.

AcydRaine is my younger brother. Just kidding. : )

I know Trogdor is still around, cause he wrote a guide just 6 days ago. I think things got too slow around FS to hold his interest. I never did catch exactly what went on with Bowhunters, but that's probably because I avoid threads with alot of bickering. The bit about Kessandra is interesting, but not at all surprising.

What is it you know about Kessandra? I'm now incredibly curious. Also....no emails to Millerboy? :D

I thought it was obvious; she's a 300-pound, basement-dwelling, pizza-faced DUDE who likes to put on his mom's underwear. It's the logical explanation for a classic case of girl-on-the-internet.

I am too really. I was contacted by an individual who claimed that images being used were of her and that it was known who was behind the Kessandra persona (a guy) based on the posts made. Frankly though, I felt that it was indeed Kessandra coming up with all of this in an attempt to somehow erase her existence. It was screwy.

Weird. I thought people played WoW with "her" too. There seems to be a lot of cover-up including living in Bahrain and Canada (unless of course said person did actually do that). Now I feel compelled to do research, but that probably won't go very far.

On a gaming forum it's generally going to be the 300lb guy in the basement. In other places, you often get a fat nasty chick posting pictures of a much more attractive female so she can fantasize and lap-up the attention. Either way, I don't care who/what people look like on here. I just come to shoot the shit and talk games/computers. Nobody should be trying to find a date. :crazy:

I regret not signing up sooner. I mostly lurked and all I remember about him/her was a tragedy of some sort.

This. Welcome to the Internet, where boys are men, girls are men, and underage girls are the FBI unless conclusively proven otherwise.

Hey, at least he used an attractive picture. And now I can feel better - that whole losing-your-fiance thing really got to me.

Full disclosure - I'm actually a fat nasty chick. The gray beard however is real.
