Hi. I was just wondering what the people of the Gaming Forums think will happen in the future around here. Like do you (@ older members) think the Gaming Forums will ever get that good old happy energetic environment and attitude that was around during the KerioVikki Era? Or is that long forgotten history that will never happen again? Like a year ago, when people were so much more open and less serious then they are now. When Aeg still spamed his ass off, and matt el g (Mr. Matt's old forum name) had posts that covered half a page. And Kerian and Hobo Joe were constantly stalking Vikki. And the Melee was still around and by far one of the most popular forums (for some people) in the whole of the Gaming Forums. And Trekker and his donutes were always just around the thread. Is it possible that we can get this feeling back once again? If so, lets do it. I don't know about you people, but I miss the old Gaming Forums, they were so much more fun and enjoyable then they are now. What things can we change to have this feeling again? If you think that is impossible, what do you think the future of the Gaming Forums really is? PS. Please, this is a serious thread. Don't spam in it please.

No, it will never be the same again. Because those people have gone. Except for FileTrekker who pops up randomly every now and then, now that his 'AGGGHHH! GAMING FORUMS IS EVIL! phase has passed :p

Forcing it to be or pretending it is the same wouldn't work either. I'd just rather see what it'll turn into next. It can't be this dull, serious and boring forever. When this crop of members has passed and a new lot arrive, it'll probably be different again. Maybe similar to what it once was. But it'll never be the same, and it'll never stay the same for too long. Dwelling on the past serves no purpose. Just wait and see what it becomes next.

What do you think will happen next? With how it recently has only been going from bad to worse, do you think this cycle will ever end? Even with new members. Common, lets hear a lot of oppinions!!!

It wont go from bad to worse: the forums evolve and develope: they change over aperiod of time and this can be for the good or the better. We don't know: this place may become worse place but it might turn into a better place, we just don't know... like matt said: we can't get the old times back: people have left and new people signed up.

Just think, DK, it is possible that in a few months, maybe a year or two, time, the forum could be BETTER than it was before, even if it isn't particularly fun at the moment. Point is, you have to stick with it to find out.

It is nice to have variety, but it is also nice when the current variety is really enjoyable.

And Matt, don't worry, ATM the only way to keep me away from this place is to ban me.
