I know that the site didn't start out as this forum. It was supposed to be something else (a games portal, or something).
I vaguely remember seeing the design of the old webpage some time ago. I think it was because Riven found it on the server, somewhere. It was hilariously ugly.
I remember seeing ChrisM's posts on here, but it must be years ago when I was just new to the forum. I haven't seen his posts in ages though.
The forum got a lot better in the time I've been around. I can't remember exactly how it was, but dang.. We have so many amazing features now. The wiki, showcase, my files, projects, thanks Riven.
I do remember that each board used to have it's own moderators. Markus Persson was a moderator in the "Performance Tuning" category, as well as "Networking and Multiplayer". Kevin Glass was a moderator in "Physics".
Ah. They had the green stars. The times. EDIT:
I actually remember that a lot of our more dominant personalities had responsible positions on the forum. Like moderators and banhammers. I won't post their names though.
Oh, this is with the exception of ra4king. I remember the day he joined. It was a beautiful day.
