I miss how active the art section used to be too Scatty. Of course, I'm not doing much to help it by not picking up a pen for so long. But it was lovely, and Quinto's art competitions were and still are a great idea

For some strange reason I remember little UBC Dave fondly, his teenage brand of ADD always made me laugh.

Oh yes, well, his visit was short but shiny. Another star that disappeared just like Indignus without finding a comfy enough place to stay. Now look how serious it is here right now without enough silly and funny kids who would lift up the mood of the forum.
Actually, speaking about which, are there actually still any kids visiting here? I would rather think it's more adult people who visit here in memories of the now long gone childhood than any kids. Was different some time ago though.

Actually there's a fair few young folks here, IanFreddie, Kugerfang, and a few others who I don't know well enough to drag up through the cobwebs of my terrible memory

Well I didn't notice Kugefang being around here when I came back, but maybe he was there shortly before that. Still those two aren't awfully a lot, seeing as how very few only talk about games now in Games Discussion. I can remember coming back here after 1 day and having to go back for at least 2 pages in Games Discussion to see all threads that have been posted into recently.
Either it's the negative karmic influence of Studentis now or Abandonia's days are counted, your pick

I'm guessing it's also got somthing to do with the age of the games... They just don't attract that big of an audience anymore... I'd say that ever since Win95 - back in 1995 came out, DOS was becoming less and less interesting and used in the eyes of the general gaming public.

Hopefully when more Win95 games become abandonware and get reviewes that will draw in a larger crowd and a lot of fresh young blood

Anyone remembers that guy nicknamed Win98? He used to drive me crazy with his spelling and lack of ANY interpunction.

Lol i used to spend soooo much time on Abandonia and on msn talking to abandonians that my mum was really scared for a while

I guess I was a kid back then... I was 16 when I joined - I'm 21 now.

But I think that the reason I'm studying IT now is that I met loads of cool people here who got me interested in it. And maybe the fact that my mom works in the field affected me as well

I think it's because the forum discussion button on the game review page is much less obvious now than it used to be, seriously.
