I hope this isn't too OT. Just curious. Anybody remember what that secret MUD was? Does Dave still own this site?

 

It started with a T... Tarbetha? Tibeta? I must know!

Dave is still an owner of the site, but isn't very active with the site any more.

 

 

Boolean (who wrote/drew the comics) has just returned with a new completed game and marketing experiment, there are various others still around, and a lot of other regular members from around those times are now moderators.

I found TA by drunk accident some time in 2010, but didn't keep up appearances there. It might still be around.
I mean, TA doesn't exist, silly poppet.

I remember getting banned once, end of 2003, for a post in one of the random threads in the lounge taunting Dave. I felt like such a bad boy.

There was a fashion for a signature that lots of people used to have back then, anyone remember what they looked like ?

 

Someone made everyone wait for a mexican wrestler, and some poppet stole people's usernames and passwords

Promit, you should remember this. What was the name of that guy who constantly posted in the Game Design section? His score was so low, that even after everyone voted him up his rating was still in the negatives.

Was that the guy who was going to make "EVE Online, but better"?

Had a user here since 1999-ish, forgot the password (the e-mail provider it was registered with had died at that point) and posted for a few years as "Anonymous poster" instead.

 

When that possibility was restricted, I got this instead.

I've been an active member since then. :)  And the T- thing was Tiberia IIRC.


I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me. I also love pet-breeding games.

His score was ALSO amazingly bad, but I have a feeling the user in question was something like "warsong"? I don't remember anyone making am effort to try to save vipejc's rep, as it was obviously his own fault and he just kept stirring more trouble, but poor warsong (or whatever it was) seemed to at least have good intentions but made mostly unintelligible posts.
