    TollboothWillie was my best memory, we had written a HL2.net fanfic based on STALKER's Chernobyl. Its pretty cringey now but the idea of community together with people I've never met was rather heartwarming.

    I vaguely remember that with Koola Mena being a big art of it. being Ukrainian and all. I wouldn't take back the time we spent on that for anything tho. It was so fun so make up a story about members.

    My favorite memory has to be pretty much knowing I spent a decade of my life here with you idiots. I love you all like a ****ed up internet redneck family.

    Also, dragonshirts and The Great CyberPitz posting his poop on the forums/rubbing muscle relaxant on his balls in steam group voice chat moments. Also being banned ave me major street cred.

    Tollbooth willie is definitely a favorite memory. Along with people like Asus, Chris D, Raziaar and so many other originals. The good old days of waiting for Hl2 and sending emails to gaben before steam was even a thing.

    One of my favourites has got to be when I was hosting one of the hl2.net dedi servers for Left 4 Dead. Played the hell out of that game back then and got to know a few members better through that. Good times :)

    All good memories posted so far. Other memories that come to mind are the Image Dumps, Photoshop Contests, and the infamous Christmas Roulette.

    I cannot imagine what some of us look like now. Self Images revival?

    I'll do it if you do it. I'm 30 now. Last time I posted a selfie here I was 16. I wonder if I could find it and post a comparison shot.
