Default Abandonia memories

Recent events on this board somehow got me thinking about old times of Abandonia. Old times when this place was much more visited and people enjoyed it much more.

This thread may be more suitable to long-term members, but may also be interesting for new members who can taste a bit of Abandonia's history.

So, my question to you is... What are the greatest memories you cherish from this board? Funny moments, sad moments, interesting moments, interesting people, whatever you remember.

My answer straight from my mind: Indignus IV's revolution thread, Titan's avatar, Cheesegrater's "The Pope is dead" thread... I'm sure more of them will pop-up eventually.

Indignus was a source of much fun I think, but like everything else that's not overly serious in here he was pretty much hunted off the forum. Quite a loss for the mood on the site, if you ask me.

The ancient Jokes thread here in 3x Blah comes also into my mind as a place of many a laughter, especially when the pictures began to replace the text jokes. Then there were the half-serious Admin Wars between Tom Henrik and Titan during the now long forgotten days of Abandonia. Only very few who're still visiting here would remember them now, and even many of the longest-term members who are still here weren't there yet.

For me it was when we have first serious fight here. Three most influential members at that time: Kosta, Tom, and Titan have after that meeting in Sweden, and decided to allow Dissidents forums. To be a member in this forum was a great joy for me

Ah... memories...

I guess seeing my first review being placed on the site, was a nice point... but the high point was deffinetly the First International Abandonia Meeting in Zagreb

But there have been many interesting people.
Stroggy, R. Havell, Wendymarrie, Yamcha, The Unknown Hero, Einherjar...

And things that happened?
The hype when we reached 1000 reviewed games That was an update

And posts, I just can't forget Romano's post on Snail mail... and exchanging postcards in real life.

Wow! You guys actually communicated outside the site? That's what I call a community!

Not only that. We actually had a few meetings, the largest of which was one in Zagreb. Where did that topic and those pictures go anyway?

And how could I forget my old buddy from Split - Unknown Hero. It was lot of fun doing those translation megaupdates. We got lots of things rolling along with our colleagues from croatian crew.

And Einherjar... Hehe, it was pretty entertaining watching him and Seb argue.

Hmm strange, somehow I don't remember those fights...
Few members here would probably remember Kiddiarni and his dancing-banana-smilie spam fests during the time when the rules on the forum weren't that strict yet A shame what happened between him and Kosta...

Yeah... those fights were in a shade of some other events... it was at a time an Admin has lost his powers... I guess more people would remember that one

Kiddi... never really got to know him... Although I met him on AR, but I think he got banned from there too... never did follow the sister site much...

Anyway, another thing sprung back to mind...
Remember Tom's Cartoon Intro music thread? That one was really nice

Heh I saw him at a concert about a year ago, we were both to drunk to engage in any meaningful conversation.

There were nice threads at time, everything was nes, many new people that would later become old farts here joined a month or two after I joined. Things were moving then, and abandonia was growing super fast, but everything reaches a plateau sooner or later. Hope we can make this place shine again, and stop this whole bickering and fighting, it didn't solve anything the last time either.
