Most of you will have no idea who I am, but I'm here to reconnect with old friends. It's been some years now. Over 10 since I signed up to this community. I had some of my best years in this community making skins, modding, meeting people. IDK what happened to make me stop coming. I think it's when we finally went from FPSB to GameBanana. I would login every couple years to see the site and how far its come. It's literally 90% different than I remember haha. It took me probably 10 minutes to figure out where to post a thread and even then I couldn't post a "General" offtopic post (at least from what I could see). I feel old now.
Chaos messaged me on Steam and it just brought back all those FPSB memories, and now I want to reconnect with all my old friends again because I'm still gaming and modding.
The activity on this site has really seemed to have picked up again, but it seems to have moved from the forums to the submissions themselves. The sense of community I don't want to say is gone, as there are definitely a handful of people that you see everywhere on here, it's just very different than it was years ago when the forums were the place to be.
Honestly, though, I really like it. I do miss the olden days when message boards were cool, but with changing times you have to change your strategy, and this is a really nice medium between the two. I don't know if we're friends on Steam, but feel free to add me if not.
I feel your pain, dude. I just joined this site 1 year ago and I already lost 2 friends who won't come back. Gotta miss when we were together having fun modding cs1.6 Well, yeah. Good times. Specially that new SideNav when it used to be on top. Now it's just next to you. ( It's the reason why the new UI sucks, actually ).
