Yeah, I think a year ago for the forum update sounds about right. It does seem that people interact on a personal level less frequently than they used to, though. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe just because most people aren't on as much/frequently as they used to be? (ie: me not logging in for ~10 days just now...)
Oh, there's a bunch of familiar names! I didn't know you guys were in contact still, though. Out of that list, I think noobers, Night_Shadow, and Electivirus are the only ones who've been here constantly, though (assuming I'm not mixing Electivirus up with somebody else, since he got a name-change, as I recall). Copygoo, too, maybe...? I know Slick got banned, but I suppose you'd know better than I if he's still traipsing about here on alts. AerialAce! and fhqwhgads have been missed presences, as well. You should bring everybody back.
Hahaha, active. It's weird to see you wrote that a week-and-a-half ago when I was last on. But in my defense, I haven't been on as much due to being distracted by Fire Emblem: Awakening, which has taken up most of my down time of late. And it is creepy. If 1984 had a lot more homosexuality and drunk college kids, we'd be living it right now.
