Uncle Elmonesian wrote:Ah Cloud Strife.... now THAT is a name I remember. *shrugs* You were young and foolish, such as the rest of us back then. If you're the Duke of drama then I'm the master of melodrama. You were a right arse bqck then Slim but then again so was I...being all pious and sanctamonious. Reeve was just incredulous that I didn't remember you, but I do now. Still have some AIM chats saved somewhere where we were chatting about ways to deal with you. Anyway, that was then.
if anyone wants to add me on fb by the way drop me a pm.

Firstly blame Apple's predictive text for my (new) name, my iPad added the 'nesian' bit for some reason. Perhaps it was getting back at me for asking Siri compromising questions... I digress.
I notice people have started their intro on how they found the Cit.... well the Cit found me. Ambi founded the Citadel as a site to host his theories in the 'Great Sequel Debate' of 1998. I disagreed with him but told him how to make Frames in HTML when he asked. (In previous times I took the credit for 'co founding' the Citadel, but that's like saying that the neighbour who lent you his lawnmower is responsible for the awesome garden party you then hold in it. ) I was then webmaster of the Cit for a while, off and on, admin of the mb, mod on the site, site librarian and general dogsbody.
So....yep, I'm an oldbie. If I was an arrogant tosspot I'd call myself YHE THE Oldbie...with Ambi of course. I'm not though.
Up until a couple of years ago I visited the Citadel every day, never posted but visited it... that's every day...for nearly 14 years. From ITW and onwards....so yep, the site meant a lot to me.
Now I'm a 33 year old Supported Living Services manager, I even have a mortgage, imagine that!
BCloud/Slim.... let me be frank. I don't remember you. There were so many of you back then, you've all melded into one in my head. I'm axtually Facebook friends with Piccolo nowadays which is weird. I suppose the point I'm trying to make is...back then what we were doing seemed important...it seemed like reality itself hinged on the stability of the board, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasnt. I'm sad that some of us have gradually drifted apart. I even tried to set up a Facebook group to bring us back together.
Y'see although what we were up to wasn't important, it was important to US. We thought we'd be friends forever...perhaps we can be friends again.
time will tell.
