Well since im almost been a member of PC a year I though I would start this thread.

Well I miss the old PC, I miss it alot. It was the first forum I joined (I know this is PC but if you go down to it the old PC was my first forum), and it was the only forum I ever wanted to make Mod. I miss the members, the threads, I miss how the Admins was always on. I just miss the old PC it self.

So do you miss the old PC? (that is if you was a member of the old PC)

I was an old PC member and I don't miss the old PC at all really considering how horrible my past was there. *still shudders from the Cas brat there*

Yes, by all means, but there's nothing that can make us return to the good old days expect how Kairi gave us the topic of "What's the topc?" in DCC today, lol. XD;; That was good. There is one thing... I really wish The One Above^ is put back into Other Chat...

It reminds me of my old name there.
"Elitedragonite963"
I hated it so I used this name,hooray!

There were some good times there. But I hated all my usernames there. I miss my old friends from the old PC *Zeke31, Kamon, Ash, many others*

Truly. Madly. Deeply.

I had an over 1000 post count, and I had fun with Scythemantis and bioseptic (well, we still talk, but we met on old PC). Plus I got more and better replies to my artwork, and now people keep getting offended by my stuff.

Well....is new PC different to old PC?

Frankly speaking, some people in old PC, especially the higher ranking ones, tend to ignore me like some newbie =(
However, both old PC and new PC makes not much of a difference to me. The only difference is that I know more people here, and have msn unlike old PC times to communicate with others.

I do! I miss the old PC far more than I like this new one. Mainly because I was in the top 20 posters in the old one, but that's just 1 reason :D:D:D

In the old PC, almost every member wasn't new, and almost every member knew every members. Now, were practically swamped with new members every day, I'm not saying I dislike them, I'm just saying it's hard to get to know each and every one...

ah well, I can't complain

(or CAN I har har)

just some BOO ya! in your coffee

Well, just wait awhile until this one gets older, and then the new members will seem like old members.. uhh... because they will be! XD I joined only a few months ago, but most people know me here. So, wait a while and see.

And since I wasn't a member at the old PC, I can't really say that I miss it. I've heard about some of the old members though, and they seemed nice. I wish that I had been a member back then. =\

I miss it too. I remember all the friends I had, except for Shelz who betrayed me. I really miss all of the old members. And BTW, I first signed up as screenshot_freak31 in December and I had a whole lot of other names. The one I used often was Yamakuu.

I haven't seen the old pc (It sounds nice) But I know how you feel, I used to play neopets everyday and I had apretty close friend, then I got bored and forgot to log in..... She hasn't logged on for like 70 days so I don't know if she will get my mssage :(

Well, I don't miss old PC that much... but I remember some funny moments... like the account getting deleted because of database crouption before the get-togeter.

Yes and you was like "There is no way I can go to it now, so im not going to be there". XD
And remember when Kwesi had that fun day? Where he messed up every one and changed Abby's name and gave her 10,000 posts (or something like that). That was funny, well till he made me a "Super Duper Moderator" and left me like that for the night. XD

I kind of miss the old PC. But this PC seems the same to me.

Iveechan
February 20th, 2004, 01:40 PM
I think that part of the reason why I missed old PC was because at the time, new english info for RS was coming out and we had so many close discussions on our excitements and disappointments of the translations. It was just a lot of fun.

Kairi
February 20th, 2004, 01:54 PM
Seems everybody misses their postcounts from the old board =\ If I could Id wipe mine right now to prove I wouldnt miss it if we had to switch again, but meh.

Anyways, Arcanine I have some pics of that, here. ^_^;

He added the Burger King thing, Ive never worked there. XP

I was never involved outside of games really until we made the database switch, so Im almost in the same position as Kayleigh, except I did meet some good friends on the old one, but people like her who are good friends Ive met here, so it works for me. ^_^;

One thing I do miss is how active some members were back in the summer on the old one, like Kwesi and Lightning. Looking back on the old database kind of makes me sad I wasnt there. Seems I came around the time the RS thing was winding down too. Games isn't nearly as professional and discussed as it was then.

DragonTrainer
February 20th, 2004, 02:35 PM
Well, not really.At the old PC, I hardly posted, and nobody likes me.Here, at the new PC, I made some wonderful friends(Kayleigh,Arcanine,etc.), I post a lot :P, and have even become a Mod.

February 20th, 2004, 03:35 PM
lol since the change I'm still confused as to who's who. Like YAS1...it took me forever to realise it was Yamakuu. lol She had my first ever request. PC is my first forums as well. To be honest I connect the old and new as one. I do miss some of the members that were active on the old PC. Especially one of my best friends that I met here, we even met up, and now run a forum together. But she became less active anyways. She's bearly ever online now. The odd chance I do see her we never talk. But even if PC hadn't changed the same would have happened. Besides look at all the lovely new members that we've gained that make PC what it is now. Everyone seems to think that old PC was more connected member to member. Dakota may I ask if you even knew I was a member on the old PC? I felt very left out on old PC. I was only just starting to connect when PC changed. It's been so much easier to connect on the new one. Though I never have been a widely known member. But at least PC seems more open to everyone. Before it was like one closely knit group, and if you were new or any other outsider it was almost impossible to become a member of the group.

Do I miss old PC? well both old and new have their advantages and disadvantages, but I'm one of the minority that prefer the new one. It gives everyone a better chance to connect. Though this new open connection has caused problems with other people that we have encountered. Though I agree with the point that the lack of admin activity is a downer. lol it's a topic of mixed emotion.

I miss the PC from back in... February of last year, I suppose. That was probably when it was in its prime since that was when I was most active, I suppose. I can give a lot of specific examples as to why I don't like PC as much, but I'll save you guys the lecture. The big thing is just my activity, though. PC was so much more fun when I was in grade 8 and not swamped with homework everynight* @_@;;

Hmm, well in all honesty, I knew of you but I didn't really know you personally...shame of that...

Oh man, old PC was my paradise forum...I think the only thing that would make this forum better than old PC is....:

More active admins (gigantic hacking COUGH)
Not so many controversial things (everyones always doin the gay and religion thing)
everyone knowing everyone! (I swear, on old PC all my friends were good friends)

Ahhh, good times

I'd like two helpings of BOO ya!

That's how the Romance thread back then [PE2K era] actually had people willing to talk in it, like not be dominated by new members joining the lists there.

That's how the Romance thread back then [PE2K era] actually had people willing to talk in it, like not be dominated by new members joining the lists there.The lists thing should be done away with, I think. Just pair people who like each other, like Soph and Arcanine, Kenshin and Yamichu, Kayleigh and *hidden*, Sayuri and *hidden* Scott and Ally, etc. =\

Back in those days people also feared of threads that had over 1000 posts needed to be closed. Meh, take a chill pill some of you old-skool mods (the ones who always thought that - most opf whom rarely come here any more). Well that's what I would be saying. New database, old fears GONE.

Well see if a thread got over a 1,000 posts then the DB mite delete it. And if it did then a lot of members would have been mad over it and new threads would have been started saying they want there posts back. So it was safe just to lock it when 1K posts came around.

Hiroshi Sotomura
February 20th, 2004, 09:41 PM
Of course, the chances of it happening depend on what happens to the database. Right now it's not likely at all. I guess that when we set a condition on a certain thread then the community would not set a DELETED tag.

I miss the old PC a lot. It was a great place. Now, it's so hard to tell one member from another. I still don't have as many posts as I did back then, and I only reached a little past 400. Even though I didn't have as many posts as the top posters, I kinda felt like I did, since I was on just as much as they were. As the new PC came, I was as high as the 14 top poster for a little while, but then me being on went back and forth from sometimes being on a lot, and then being gone a lot. I'm hoping to be on more than ever now. I'm hoping to get many more chapters in my fanfic done, and maybe have sequels, and I still need to post my art from the old PC. I've been a member here for almost a year now, and I've made many friends. Hopefully PC will be around for many years to come, and I'll be an active and proud member for every one of those years.

I said this before, but under my old PC name Hitmonarch, people kept thinking I was a dude. The reason I chose that username back when I joined in January of last year was because I was making a Hitmonarch site. I haven't updated in almost a year :/. I still remember the first picture I ever posted... it was a running 'arch. That was my first post also.

Heh, online games I had wanted to switch from Haruka-chan for a while at the old one, hence the avatar. ^_^; I havent considered changing this name at all though, maybe because I remember all of this PC and so little of the past one. Good memories with this one and whatnot.
