Easily the most valuable thread in the community. Without it, it would be much harder to get to know the people on the forum. In fact, I felt that's what the old Games & Trivia Forum was so good for: getting to each other. All of the threads on that board brought the community closer.
Very true...though Dano's obsession with it at the end kinda creeped me out.

:uhoh:

This was such a good time for SC: Franky was posting a lot, Tarkus was just emerging, and a lot of the old guys were still around, pitching in.
I don't even remember the 500 Pictures Game. Either you're making it up or I'm on crack.

They were/are more interesting than 99% of the posts on this board so I wouldn't sweat it.

I'll have to look it up and see what it was all about. If I didn't get it at first I'd consider that a good thing though.

It's always a plus here at SC to talk about yourself...and only yourself.

Guys like him and Dano make me appear as if I've actually aged somewhat gracefully. So while annoyed at their existence in general, I guess I should feel somewhat glad they came around.

It was mainstream view vs. mainstream view. Just think of it as Fox News without those sexy fascist b-itches they have doing the news breaks.

InTheNet was pretty much a troll basically because he could angle things for himself. DET is just giving us line by line from the press release.
