Yeah, that one was fantastic. The best part of it was the fact the conversation lasted 3 hours.

Here's another good one regarding signature vandals...

It looks like that thread was also Shawndo's swan song at Sports-Central.

Here's another fun thread idea....let's find out what were the final threads for key members. Maybe we can find a pattern.

On that thread: I remember expecting the moderators to find it as a light-hearted, playful jab, but it didn't go over that way

Few things rarely go over the way they were expected to here at SC.

Did it ever occur to anyone that a major contributing factor to today's SCMB is that most of its former regulars were teens who grew up and moved on from message boards? A large number of us were just kids when I think about it, and just like things like MySpace lose their spark as their user base grows up and loses interest, I think that played a role here.

Some random musings on a few of my favorite threads:

20,000 Posts Thread
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.

I have a lot of good memories of staying up all night and posting with Nate and Tarkus in that thread. Another good thread was the 500 Pictures Game. I remember it started with Nate and I posting some of the most random pictures, and ended with a bunch of pictures of hot women. 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.

Somewhere along the line, I posted non-stop about poker in 20k thread. I kind of feel bad about that; I wish I could delete all of those posts-- they were a waste of time for everybody.

My favorite thread that I wrote was My Orientation Speech To All New Members… Buckeye didn't seem to get it at first, which made me feel like it had failed, but other people then ended up getting it

Fireworks and Ellis' Words Of Wisdom are both close seconds; I am really proud of creating both. I'd try and analyze them, but I think they speak for themselves; they're posts that I felt were dadaist in nature, but at the same time had a good message.

I don't know why, but I liked PirateBob's political campaign. It just goes to show that some really interesting characters have come and gone on this site.

Threads that I never really liked (the anti-favorites) were the ones in the political forum. We all could have done without reading CK and PhilAb. babble about nothing for 10 pages. However, DET and InTheNet were interesting. They tended to post just a few sentiences per post and they were always pretty strong statements. I wonder what those guys are like in real life. Do they live like that in real life? Never really backing up their statements, just whipping people with a few lines and then leaving the conversation with no doubt in their mind as to how right they are?

Anyways, that's about it for now. I'll add more later.

Very true...though Dano's obsession with it at the end kinda creeped me out.

:uhoh:

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.

Quick point on the political threads...

No one was forcing you to read anything.
