Last time I was active on these forums, I was 14. And the community was great! I don't even remember why I left! I seem to recall being good friends with various other regulars. Hell, I'm still in the top 10 for most posts made on the board.
I'm 20 now, which seems crazy given the context, and this place is a damn ghost-town! Even the slowly encroaching spam bots seem half-hearted. Are there still any regulars that frequent this place? Anyone from back in the day still around? Judging from the spam, it seems like neither Owen nor any of the mods (Jenny, Michael, and Seamus) are around. I'm sad to see this place so empty, but I guess I'm kind of characteristic of its downfall, seeing as I basically disappeared without a trace
But in 2010, this place was intense! Although my memory is a little bit hazy, I seem to recall that Noir was basically a monumental achievement of collaborative storytelling. Unless I'm very much mistaken, Caiti (kt?) literally ELOPED with Rache, and I don't recall if I ever even heard from her again. That was back in the day when if you wanted to interact with someone outside of the forum, you added them on AIM. Crazy! And we had the thing where we made accounts that were evil versions of ourselves, and the chatbox (which still exists its just harder to find than I remember (!!)), and mistercow (I think) made me this kickin' signature.
Christ, and I'm an adult now.
Anyone around to read this?
