So, this little forum that so many of call our home away from home started a little over 8 years ago (holy jumping shitballs, has it been that long?! :shock: ). So I thought I'd start a thread about it. The good times, the bad times, the confusing/conflicting times, the incredibly amazing times, etc. You name it, that's what this thread is about.

There's still a handful of us veterans that registered during the initial months back in '02 that still post either occasionally or frequently. Posters like, slime.oofytv.set (aka slime), MentalTossFlycoon, The Forum Killed Arkay (formerly known as Arkay), Ronny's Noomies, Catpuke, sleeping in a jar, calvin2hikers, jaypfunk, switftkicknow, HJ, Zut_boF, BBP, Mr. Green Genes, Studebaker, garry, Twenty Small Cigars, etc. Not to mention, some of the vets who jumped ship or were banned for a variety of reasons, like, drooling savant, Mattie Told Hattie, Mungo, Sebastian, jimmie d, bb, Gypsy Moon Dream, white person (aka whitey), Issac, Trendmonger, etc. I think some of the relatively new posters like Plook, KAPT.KIRK, zomby truth, etc., would've been in awe of some of the vets who aren't here anymore.

Remember the Unmoderated CD that Arkay produced and many of us contributed to? I should throw that on soon. Or when Flo & Eddie posted here about how they were supposed to be a part of the '06 ZPZ tour...?


Happy 8th, Z Forum! :twisted:

Well, I actually joined up 5 years ago. But that already seems too long to me. Where does it go?

I first joined in 2002, a suggestion from dear ol' Sebastiaan. Who disappeared in 05 and I met for the last time in 2006. I miss him.

Another fellow Dutchman, Studebaker, I don't think he posts here anymore. He disappeared from my forum as well.

There's also a lot of dear memories from people you didn't mention: Batchain, vivien_o_blivion (AKA Matty), Scallop...

I got my first web-proposal at this forum. It was by JayPFunk, I believe, in the Lyrics That Describe JPFunk thread

True, true. Lots of members had to re-enlist after 2 crashes, which lost members accounts. That's why Sabrina is now Sabrina III.

Yes, I survived the great crash of '06, wasn't it? Nope, '05. Cranky oldtimer, that's what I am.

The renewal was dated April 4th, 2006. Some birthday present!
Before that the forum crashed four times. Once I had to delete all my PMs in order to be able to receive them again, and at that occasion I also lost a lot of posts. I had just crossed the 500 barrier and was suddenly back at 49.

I used to have a Lisa Simpson avatar. Later I made one of myself, and then I had a black dragon. For a long time I had this sig pic of Donald, advertising Joe's Garage.

My most recent account is from Dec, 2005, that's why I corrected myself. Perhaps I was right in the first place.

I debuted in November 2002 as "dean". Then I think I became "deanagain" for awhile. I've was briefly "Funny Car" and something else I can't remember before coming back as KillUgly and now also KillUgly's Paradise. Jumping around from physical addresses, email addresses, different computers, etc. seemed to necessitate all these changes.

I am one of the very few (or is it the phew?) who either survived both deadly crashes or who did not voluntarily created sequel accounts, and so today I figure in the top poster spot, even though some here have posted more than me.

I remember (tu-tu), I remember (tu-tu), when I had only a couple of dozens posts, some guys were making their way through 2k posts (that must have been middle 2003)...

Who has the top posts per day average count?

Very probably similar to a 1oo min bike-tour from Castillo de Castellar to Gibraltar, then being there for only five minutes more it stretches depressingly like the worst parts of eternity. Accept the uttermost respect Huck for taking up with us lot. Like KUP, where in the world have you that colossal nick from? I changed, for other reasons though. He did a greatest task in moving places so often. Have you find your palace? ..well, rightio. Thanks for mp3-players, curt nods to neighbours and ..next time they learn to know me ....from that batter part!-) ...ehh really now. Ow-shito-shito-shito, language halts for ey second and takes ey sip. And about time, innit? the cheerios.

Communication breakdown...

He was responding to HP! He posted almost at the same time as you, so your post got in the way :wink:
