    It's all about the forum stats.

    Cruxis is actually helping the site by making accounts.

    All the reminiscing makes me wish 2012 me was the same as 2008 me. (I ****ing hate 2008 me) Then I could actually understand what people are saying when they say misc. used to be good.

    It does suck that a lot of good posters left/got banned, but I can't really blame them. I have lost track of how many times I left this place.

    Confusing. Either way, though, I'm not sure if I've ever seen him post and not mention the fact that he is a mod in one context or another, and I find that really damn annoying.

    I mean ****, it's the most sensable thing to do. And if he comes back with them, just keep deleting them.
    I'm pretty sure every ****ing forum on the planet does this . Jesus.
    Big Nutter isn't an admin, so he can't do that. But he wants to help and did you know that he is a moderator?

    What was 2008 Glass Eye like? I can't say I remember offhand.

    And I don't know if "good" is the best word to describe it, but regardless, this forum was once as funny as **** every day.

    I've never really thought of "leaving" though. I mean, you're gone, but then you come back some day and you basically never left. I don't know.

    Basically, yeah. (Also "bastard" is no longer censored.)

    Couldn't other admins do that?

    Well yes he isn't, but I don't see why the actual admins can't. Even petty spambot accounts are not deleted. Most forums I've been on purge those instantly. Why do they still exist?

    I mean, at this point nearly everything here on SPPf is mindnumbingly stupid. I really don't know why I come here. Here's a few decent people here ( some in misc and a good few in the RNGers group here) but other than that everyone else here is ****. I should probably leave, but when **** like Cruxis happens here you get reactions like no other, and they are honestly too damn funny.

    Why don't you leave then...? It won't kill you. Back in '09 I left for about 10 months, and then again after a short bit during '10 and I'm not dead.

    A lot of stuff here doesn't make since. Such as the 1 month bump rule. The more space you use, the more money it cost to run the site. If I had a dollar for every duplicate thread here I'd be loaded. Hell, we could probably get custom avi's with the space you'd save but w/e.

    Then we have the Dawn fanclub.

    In regard to these forums, I don't even remember 2008. 2009, I got into way too many pointless flame wars, and in 2010 I was too uptight. It wasn't until 2011 after some crazy real ****, that I became the poster I am today.

    Let's not even witch-hunt here. There's a lot of space-saving things that could be done just by blanking a few really useless small things here and there. Though, that would probably be a lot of effort...

    Purging the "art" in the shipping section should do the trick.

    I'm going tell that you are double posting. That's bad and taking up forum space.

    Forum space that could be better used to allow people over the age of 18 to discuss a game intended for children.

    I love myself

    Oh might I add that pretty much every Pokemon forum ( I'll mention smogon) runs custom avatars.

    Oh and I did leave for smogon during my four month ban. I only came back here because I know the culture here slightly better, and I have more online buddies here. Im slowly going to ditch SPPf though because so far smogon has proven to be a much more sensable and just forum compared to the blandness and childish aspects of serebii

    I'm just going to continue to sit back and watch the children squabble and flail about. Being on the internet for 22 years(ish) allows for a perspective of human behavior some of you are just learning about. *Munches some Popcorn* Continue...

    So true!

    I been using the net by myself since 2004 and used it with my dad around 2001-2004 on a Bob the builder game (I was 3-5 then and dad mostly only let me watch/click on a mouse)

    Unless you are referring to Usenet, I really find that hard to believe.

    I remember using the internet back in 97/98 (can't remember) I used Netscape browser and Altavista search engine to look up **** about Dragonball Z (and to a lesser extent Pokemon and Ranma 1/2) Those were the days all those geocities pages, incorrect information and fake pictures. I remember someone saying the predecessor to Dragonball Z was Dragonballz. I ate that **** up. Everyone wanted to know everything they could about DBZ spoilers be damned. You could make some decent chump change selling printed out webpages of DBZ information.

    I didn't really have full unmitigated internet access until the end of 2007, however. (due to either not having a computer or not having decent internet before then)
