I know what you mean Lonesome Hobo. WE has changed alot. Some chages have been positives , some not so positive. Everyone remembers the big names on the forums. Like Hobo mentioned. Nitemare, Hankey, Kaneanite. I went away for a while to work on my own forums, i came back and i was unknown by many members.
Perhaps the main problem is, there are too many members.
Perhaps its the fact that new members have joined, and are working hard (which I've always told members to do) to get somewhere.
I hope its the latter. Then we can be proud of the board that sits infront of us today.
