    We are old and therefore allowed to have our sniveling nostalgic threads. GET OFF MY LAWN!

    For once modstegs is right, nobody reads the stickies. Instead it shall float, and if it is popular it will float to the top.

    Oh boy. I don't even remember taking that test. Can't have been a nice result, mustn't have been very nice back then.
    Funny to see my name and "Dutch" in one line as I am Dutch....

    If this 'revival' proves to be worthwhile, I'll manage it the way I've always managed OT threads that fall under my proverbial jurisdiction (ie. swap them out annually, give them a theme).

    No special rules because we have enough as it is.

    No sticky either because we already have too many! I do have quite a bit of free time coming up so I'll try to take care of the OTF housecleaning I seem to have developed a habit of not doing.

    @ Bob: No objection to the personality threads. If you like, find a couple old ones and bump them so peeps can have a look at how they work. If they're locked, send me a link and I'll bump them. The personality threads were popular during a period where I was either too busy with Community to hang out here or during my failed retirement so I really don't remember them at all. Sounds goofy - like the silly OTcars - but whatever; fun is fun.

    So what's the theme then?

    Is it clowns?

    Maybe Ann Geddes?

    Or even cycling?


    This is gonna be awesome!

    I googled Anne Geddes and her pics are weird.

    The OTcars were a time-honored tradition that meant a lot to this forum. You're just jealous that you never got one.

    I just looked through a few of the old OTcars threads and I find myself wondering how so many of those old-timey members got banninated. Veritable graveyard of grey names in those threads.

    It all happened at the same time. Nasty business.

    I can't find them ? personality is the word in the title and the user name etc and Yaboosh who is still here made a bunch of them but not in my search results ?


    A few got banned and the rest committed suicide here and knew they were doing it.

    KoZSpaced and his NSFW Avatar - that was nasty but a chuckle in a way etc.

    Meh - This Thread is for the kind of current discussion that may cause new ones of both to be considered.
    LOL
    :D

    I wasn't around when the ban hammer fell so I don't know the details, just showed up one day and everybody was gone

    I was Chuck Heston in The Omega Man, which is why I've pretty much just shot at everything that moves and lit people on fire if they get near my stuff since then

    buncha damn paleface mutant freaks

    OK no sticky and it's not at the top - post now and I can fix that
    All I need to do is find a Off-topic Topic so I don't get banned for posting here just for post count

    Any suggestions?

    I was searching for old threads but I get easily sidetracked, there was a thread about favorite sci-fi spacecraft

    also once you get back to 2005 I've posted in every thread, what a silly person I was

    I didn't have any luck finding threads other than the "tell us about you" type threads, so if there's some kind of personality threads buried back there I didn't see them

    I always thought the 'tell us about thread' was the personality thread, or at least that was all I found in my posts. Silly searching, so tedious.

    *does some sort of jig because its early and I feel like it*
