I fondly look back at those days and all the fellows I haven't talked to in far too long. Well, fellow (Tulac, I'm talking at you). I'm consistently bothered by Punch still, but that's how it goes when the 12 year old slowly develops into a real human being. God, I can't believe you were that young, Punch...

Bottom line, good times. Good times.
Punch is funny like that, i keep deleting him off my buddy list yet he always resurfaces 5-6 months later...generally to somehow trick me into revisiting this place (or direct me to random ass youtube videos)

Hey Yobor dude, I think I lost your msn/icq contacts during many of the program switching, nice to see you here again.

I may as well jump in here too. I've got some great memories of this place, most of which had to do with the Grammar Squad. Unfortunately, this means that most of you never saw those memories, but we did have some fun in our little enclave. I miss those days, but then I'm prone to nostalgia, so I miss most days!

My current employer's web traffic filter likes to block access to Abandonia arbitrarily. I can get to AR with no problems, so shortly after I started working here (that'd be about 2.5 years ago), I moved over there. Most of the Grammar Squad folks had moved over there by that time anyway, for one reason or another. The AR forums have been quite dead for a while now, though. If I can consistently access this place, I'll certainly turn up more frequently. I'd love to see Abandonia restored to its former glory.

I agree with everyone else: the old site layout was significantly better. That may be nostalgia talking, but I don't think so.

Nice to see you again Fruit pie. I think everyone would like to see it restored that was around back then. So many amazing memories gone. Funny how it seemed like it would last forever.

Oh I definitely agree. The old layout was much better, but I'm sure there was some sort of hullabaloo when that was changed, like there's always a hullabaloo over thisaways. Grammar squad was good times, even though I was appointed and promptly was too busy in my "rl" to do much of anything on it; I don't even know if anyone noticed I was on the grammar squad until we did the forum change and I lost the priveliges I never used... Ahh, good times.

Yobor and FPJ, I demand you change back your avatars so I can delve deeper into my memories of the Old Abandonia.
Also, you guys are awesome.

Yea, not certain exactly what happened, either it got deleted somehow (an error somewhere, who knows), or, more likely, I managed to forget my password, which would be rather sad.

Either way, any help would be appreciated

Moogle.

And yes, that picture is indeed awesome.

I wasn't sure I'd be able to dig up my old avatar, but I found it...on AR! Yobor, I remember your very short stint in the Grammar Squad. The rest of us were a little...nonplussed by your signup and prompt departure, but that kind of thing happens!

A quick question about the new forum layout: does it work any better in IE than it does in Firefox? I do most of my recreational web surfing in Firefox, but this forum is giving me mixed results - things like posts getting cut off halfway through and Google ads appearing on top of (and thereby blocking) links or buttons. Is there any remedy for this? It's not enough to keep me from coming back, especially if the forums will stay active and some of the old crowd will pop in from time to time, but it's annoying.
