What are your favourite moments from your time on the forum? Are there any former/long-lost members that you miss?

I, for one, miss Mr Man. [thunbs up]

Some members I kinda remember were cool? John Doe comes to mind. Walker is the coolest of them all, but I still bug him from time to time on FB.

I do miss Walker, his humour was a special kind of special.

I swear Tsuyu was abducted by Amazonian aliens who yell about SNU-SNU! At least he’s probably happy about that...

As my main focus at the moment is working on a Fable Directer’s Cut Quest Guide I would have to say that Sephiroxas with her Items of Doom thread really inspired me years ago to take up the search. It’s pretty gratifying to know now that most of those items now have cut quests that we have found and how these items were intended to be used.

Yeah I’ve always been pretty keen to mention that part to other, newer Fable communities. We the straight OG, even if we do have a new name now. >.>

  • Getting to speak to some members of the old Lionhead crew and some stopping by to answer questions.
  • being one of the first 200 members here and posting his work before he made it big on Youtube.
  • I miss lots of the older members for sure (too many to name), had some great co-op sessions with some members too over Xbox Live and PC .
  • The old MSN group chats

  • The chatango. It was a mire of filth, but it was our mire and we loved it.
  • A list of members as long as my arm...even when we fell out repeatedly over things like religion or politics, they was good peoplez all the same.
  • When we had the time and patience to really think about our responses to trolls before banning them - I recall one from 2006 which involved prison, soap and a man called Sandra.
  • Getting to know my first real crowd of internet people that weren't all busy pretending to be someone else just coz they were online. Have made some genuine connections over the years and that's more than I can say for some people I (formerly) know IRL.
  • If I'm brutally honest, some of the most satisfying ban hammer wielding has been done on this site.
  • All the in-jokes that didn't exclude new people from joining in. That's rare.

There have been some that I have rather enjoyed too so not alone in that one.

Cool idea for a thread @Ludna ! Some great responses so far and opportunities to reminisce. A few memories that spring to mind:
  • When we were still using vBulletin, a thread was completely derailed and became a sort of 'Reputation roulette' (Reputation being the post feedback system we previously used) and Reputation would be gifted out or taken away in the thousands based on ridiculous criteria that would change every five minutes. For clarity, Reputation points were previously rewarded in single or lower double digits based on forum activity. That thread effectively threw all that out of the window and people would leave with an insane amount of Reputation or massively in the minuses (an otherwise impossible feat). It was a lot of fun.
  • I really enjoyed doing a lot of stuff behind the scenes, writing guides and trying out new add-ons for the forum like the old arcade system. Investing in new features and templates like eXtremepixel's 'Applied' felt like opportunities to stir up the community and keep things fresh and buzzing.

Yeah I’ve always been pretty keen to mention that part to other, newer Fable communities. We the straight OG, even if we do have a new name now. >.>

Lionhead employees were genuinely always a nice bunch in my experience - I only met one who kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Playing Fable Legends with some of them was always cool and very nice to see them take time to engage with players.

Oh yeah! I was gonna mention this one too. I wasn’t around back then but heard a lot about it. Sometimes I feel like trying to gain contact with him and be like “remember yer ol’pal projectego?” :ROFL:

It’s fitting now that it’s filled with p*rno bots.

Love you too, baby cakes.

Need me to send round Giki-chan to seduce anyone? I’m sure she won’t mind, in fact... yep, she’s already on her way, blow-up doll in hand.
