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).

Ouch. Not even a farewell note. My twelve-year-old self thoroughly enjoyed Neglected Charaters.

"Super Mario is probably the most popular game in the world. From kids to old people, everyone knows about this game. Year after year, Nintendo doesn't disappoint with Mario series game releases. I am officially addicted to this game. Another thing that I really enjoy and kind of addicted to is online poker. If you get going, there is easy cash to be made. That's why I like this game so much."

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.

Yeah. Hopefully the forum falls more "awesomer" than THAT, if the forum falls at all.

We're like the small-time electronics store being pushed out of town by encroaching Apple stores. This could necessitate an 80's inspirational sports movie-style mission or videogame-centric "Be Kind Rewind."
I like the Apple metaphor, as a Samsung user myself. Maybe we could revamp the forums?

Eight year old me's personal favorite thing on SMBHQ was BOTVGH!

Seeing sites like SMBHQ and TRsRockin' in the current states, after having not visited them for so long, is rather like coming back to your childhood house to find they've ripped it down and turned it into a brothel.

(At least, that's the feeling I've got after reading this thread...)

This place hasn't felt like a brothel since Glorb left.

It felt like a harem, briefly.

I've been lurking/posting on this forum since 2007. I was 11 when I registered here, and, being a little bit more grown up, it's really nice to see that this place is still going, even if it's a little quieter.

I'm in a similar boat, in a similar timeframe. Visiting these sites for the past 8 years, and saw the downhill slide of SMBHQ, SM128C, etc. Used to love fiddling around here all day. Too bad. Also, NC was awesome.

And the unceremonious and mysterious end to lemmy's land. 3 years ago, never forget.

Oh yeah, I popped into Lemmy's Land official chatroom once. I found out that Lemmy decided to end the site without an official word because he just couldn't take the idiocy anymore. And then I promptly never went back to said chatroom because I couldn't take the idiocy either.

I remember when you guys joined, and the impact you each made upon arrival. At the time I never would have imagined that Weegee, Shadowbrain, The Chef, etc would become the new TEM, Suffix, Chupperson Weird, etc. simply because you were the newbies!

(that's not a personality comment, moreso about being the "forum regulars". and also I know Suffix is active again or something, but still)

I guess my point is, my impression of TMK is stuck in 2008 and you are all still newbies to me, and the fact that you're not is weird.

I'm curious: has any of you ever heard of Watoad?

Yes, I know who Watoad is. On occasion I'll even muse about whatever happened to him. Are any of the original staff or oldbies still in contact with him?

Well, I'm honored to have joined "the ranks," in some small capacity! :) "Watoad" rings a bell, but I couldn't quote a post for you.
