PSI, you are only showing your n00b status. Do you have the forum set for 45 days? Try setting it for "Show all topics." [Wink]

It's because the board has since switched to Unicode. Right-click, and choose Western European under the Encoding options, and they'll be back to normal.

Maybe some stuff to be gleaned from this by our new crop of newbies? Y'all seem like an eager bunch. Hopefully we can all learn to live in harmony, trading goods and existing in an uneasy alliance until our species start to interbreed?

I quite agree, Leonide. Heck, I still read this to remind myself of some of the not-so-obvious "quirks" in Hatrack.

I have to agree with others that Squick's post is hilarious! Especially:

quote:

2) You can kill an non-newbie and thus take their place. Back in the early days of the forum, this was the preferred method of advancement... However, the years of infighting have led to a darwian survival of the fittest situation... so come get some, you little punk.

I think I'd go with the third option, myself. Seeing as how I have an irrational fear of both kelp farmers and oldbie jatraqueros.

Oh, and I loved Frisco's #10:

Create a sample thread containing the subjects "onanism", "abortion", "homosexuality", and "memes", then type the entire alphabet to prove that you didn't snort snot all over your keyboard in a futile attempt to make the above thread sound serious.

Man, now I kind of wish I hadn't gone back and read it. It makes me sad to think some of the people I love talking to online right now might not be around in five years. I just hope the people I miss are gone because they are living the good life and don't need this forum anymore.

It's interesting reading this thread and seeing all of the formerly active posters who I've never heard of before. This forum has a rich history.

Kind of random, but looking back on the old posts reminded me of the community on the other side of Hatrack that is completely isolated from us.

edit: Here's a link to the page that contains all the subforums.

It's just the Writers' Forums. Not sure why that's creepy.

And there is some overlap in membership.

Interesting. I remember lurking on these forums back then. It took me several years to find the courage (and time) to create an account and start adding my voice. Seeing some of those old names does bring back memories, and it also makes me feel relatively young! (I know, I know, I AM relatively young)
