Same as title. The most recent achievement I unlocked is Eyes on the Road from the game Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Steam.

I've personally spoken to Metal Man. He says Kyle Orland completely went off the deep end after the site was left in his hands. The poker thing is dead-ass serious.

NintendoLand
That reminds me, did I ever publicly apologize for stealing the TMK articles about Doki Doki Panic and Panel de Pon and submitting them to NintendoLand back when I was like nine? Because yeah, I don't know what the hell nine-year-old-me was thinking.

If TMK ever does die, I hope we at least die a more dignified death than SMBHQ (actually, to this day I'm still not sure if the poker thing was a serious sponsorship thing or some kind of postmodern joke or what; i mean, in 2009, their April Fools joke was putting fake Viagra ads on everything).

This man knows what's up. Granted, nostalgia's practically currency these days, but this site means a lot to me for that, if only because it represents things that meant a lot to me growing up. I still remember the chain of events that led me from searching for info on Shiguru Miyamoto for an elementary school class project to finding the ClassicGaming network, to checking out all the trivia and fan stuff in the TMK archives over several years, to finally joining the forums in 2007 after my old haunt "Nintendomain" tanked. I've seen a lot of fellow forums and favorite sites come, go, and get retooled in those years--for better or worse--so whether the Fungi Forums keeps attracting new blood or just becomes a ramshackle pub for aging Millenials to wax nostalgic, you can guarantee I'll be popping in on the daily until somebody brings the Super Mario Bros. 3-inspired curtain down on the stage.

Take out the part about the school project, and go a bit further back in time (to about '99 or so), and you basically have my journey to TMK in a nutshell.  I'd love to see this place once again become the juggernaut it (kinda) used to be.

We aren't going to get many new members unless we do some kind of social media or YouTube thing. Like, a bunch of TMK users all post videos of them playing or showing off Mario games (spinoffs or otherwise) to the official TMK YouTube channel. Maybe Mario TAS stuff...pssh, like that would ever happen!

Well, that's the question, isn't it? What's the trajectory of this site? It's all a question of marketing and the integration of more contemporary media. And I don't think it's one that us regular members are able to answer. Far be it from me to order the staff about, but I do think somebody needs to have this conversation if the site is to remain relevant.

People complaining about those lame ass clickbait websites should check out The Onion's new clickbait parody site, ClickHole.

As Suffix has put much better, I feel like websites like TMK aren't really "necessary" in today's climate. Just browsing TMK brings heartwarming nostalgia; it has basically the same layout as it's had for years (I remember this awesome black color scheme being here since I was 8, and I'm half-sure the format's exactly the same) and an old-fashioned forum with a community of jaded college students or even recent (or not-so recent!) graduates who were here in high school and possibly even before. (Except for younglings like me who were on this site way too young ;]) [dukar], TMK still hosts MIDIs! I have a really large MIDI and SoundFont collection on my computer, but I don't think anyone else on Earth does. Doesn't TMK still have one of those little official banners? You know, those really small gifs that Mario/Nintendo sites put on other Mario/Nintendo sites back then, so they could be like a network?

Just be glad TMK never went the way of NintendoLand, the ultimate old school Nintendo fansite that had a *****in' layout that fascinated younger me that's now reduced to just a forum. You can't even view it in the Wayback Machine without seizure inducing constant refreshes completely disrupting the experience! I'm glad TMK is what it is.

I am impressed they decided to have someone dressed as Toad instead of Yoshi. Usually Toad gets the shaft in events such as this.

Given how the Toad guy looks here, I wouldn't be surprised if Toad were still getting the shaft in this situation.

It's not the specific upload date of just six years ago. It's the spirit, [darn] it! DBZ, Linkin Park, AMVs...
