This is the first time I've signed into this account in...years. Any of the old timers still around? Cold Acid, Evolutional, Avatar God, Trapper Zoid, Zero Wolf?

Things are different now! The site looks all fancy and new!

It seems the avatars are being pulled from Gravatar now? Anyone know if they let you set site specific avatars? I miss my old one:)

Floorcaek party! :D

How's it going these days Apoch? Is Dave still around?

Most of them are here, though most of them aren't quite as active as they used to be. You should make a floorcaek comic to celebrate the fact that you aren't dead. I thought you might be. It's good to have you back!

I've been around for a long time, but lately (as in the past few years) I have been doing more reading than posting.

Oh how I wish we were all in a pub right now, I'd be buying everyone drinks. Good to see familiar names! *tips hat to Cornstalks and cowsarenotevil*.

I wonder if he can still draw.

Could I ever draw in the first place? :P

Hey Nigel, long time no see! I'm still around, although I used to go by "kazgoroth" back in the day. Evolutional changed his account name to "Downgraded" quite a while back, and I don't recall much recent activity from him. Trapper Zoid vanished for a while but has been active a couple of times more recently.

Setting a site-specific avatar is a GDNet+ feature.

What ya been up to?

evo is basically MIA. I talk to him on facebook every once in a blue moon, but he doesn't have much to do with gamedevs stuff lately. I changed my name from VertexNormal. All this name-changing that has been going on makes it tough to keep track of the old-timers. You going to start doing the comic again, boolean? Or are we going to have to heat up the irons and sharpen the knives?

A wild zombie boolean appears!

I think the community has drifted slowly apart over the years; people have grown. The site change and the cancellation of gdnet V5 was a shock which sort of blew some people away.

Except me. I'm still mentally a teenager even though I'm now a fat old man and I find changes to the appearance of the site largely irrelevant.

So apart from being mostly dead for a few years, what has kept you from the site?

Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.

Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.

Still in Toronto?

I don't post as much as 1) work is keeping me busy and 2) when I see a thread and want to reply and am at the bottom of the page and it says I can't reply I usually just get too lazy to scroll back up to login and just don't reply now

I guess I count as an old-timer (since Feb 2000). I think the last thing I did on here meaningfully about games was winning one of the 3-hour game dev competitions several years back. I still lurk around here pretty frequently though, and once everything in my life settles down, if that happens before death, I will probably come back to games :-)

Shit, man... welcome back.

[edit] I've been around a lot longer than my join date would indicate. I had created a new profile when the the accounts were compromised in 2007, and later had a moderator merge the accounts -- I got all my posting history preserved, but not my join date or reputation :)

I just have to ask. What (or should that be who?) is a Floorcaek? I've seen it before but that was several years ago and I never cared about what it was... kind of regret that now, feels like I'm missing out on some of nerd culture :/
