    Hi!

    Anyone remember me?

    I signed up to the forum over 10 years ago and it's great to see it's still about! For anyone who remembers me, I am now married and have a baby on the way!

    Nice to see you all again.

    Yeah, I remember you.

    Still swing by here from time to time. I used to do it so much that it's pretty much become instinctual now.

    Damn, you're gonna make me want to buy stuff.

    ...

    Well, according to the site I am outnumbered by 78 robots, so I'd say nobody.

    I miss this place. It makes me sad to see how quiet it's become. Also, I'm sorry I was such an asshole guys. I was young, and also an asshole.

    Grats Xen.

    I still read your sig as Thane, Willie. And just realized you can get an extra thing by clicking the name after you put the sunglasses on; and so on.

    I visit that Tane website occasionally even to this day.

    Speaking of signatures, clicked on yours and rediscovered that thread of Willie's from 2007. Can't believe that was 10 years ago now.

    For anyone who doesn't know, Melanie aka CleverEndeavor, a member of ours who hadn't posted in awhile, recently passed. I don't know what else to say, but yeah.

    That's sad, although the username doesn't ring a bell.

    I'm living in Athens Greece now, I started by own business and left the UK. Sad this place is so quiet, but all things must come to an end.

    Sorry to hear that. It had been awhile since there was an update from her GoFundMe campaign, guess there wasn't good news to report.

    Congrats Xendance on the kid though! Crazy to think there's probably a bunch of members with kids now.

    I was recently thinking about what a little shit I used to be on the internet, especially here. And how the debates and arguments here actually formed me into a better person I think. I can remember specific threads where someone changed my mind about something, even if I didn't agree right away. Like 5 years after the fact I'd remember saying something here, and be embarrassed that I ever thought that.

    Good times. I still hate that forums went away for the most part, and everyone goes to shit holes like Reddit or Twitter these days. No sense of community or relationship there. I still remember everyone's name that's posted in this thread, yet I don't remember the Reddit person I talked with yesterday. I'm glad to see so many people still check back here so often.

    Hi folks. *waves*

    So tonight I got a friend invite from "CyberPitz". How can you forget a person you spent playing/talking to nearly every day after school when you were a teen? Especially with a name like that? I had no idea that Melanie had "acute myeloid leukemia" (AML). I'm just finding out about this now. I also didn't know that CyberPitz married Melanie which was completely awesome! The sad news is that shortly after Melanie passed away.

    Melanie was pretty special in that not many girls were on hl2.net and she also played Counter-Strike. I remember going to college for my Associate in Welding and she was going to college to become a bank teller and then decided more of a teacher. My dad is an auto teacher so we had some sort of common bond in that way. Just a fun person to talk to. I never went to NJ even though I could but it would take like 6 hours or so to meet a person on the internet. Of course now we have PAX East so it's more feasible now.

    Melanie touched my life because she actually liked to play games rather than be the stereotype that "girls don't play games" or they are "cam girls". You will be missed.

    What's up, man! I remember you! I haven't been here in quite a while. No offense to the forum, but I'm surprised this place is still up! Great times as a kid here and growing up into an adult. It's crazy how long it's been for a forum, this place is ancient!

    Well this is nostalgic.

    Despite never really getting too involved I have a lot of fond memories of this place. It's funny how nearly fifteen years later I still recall the names and avatars of the people who posted here - yet I couldn't tell you a single thing about random chuckle**** #124921 on reddit from twenty minutes ago.

    I miss the old internet.

    Hope everyone is well. Thanks for the memories.
