Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

There's zero chance this forum (or probably over 99% of others) generates enough ad revenue to pay for hosting and a full time dedicated admin based in the UK. Well now, you've gone ahead and cut to the quick of it, haven't you? A savvy and not inaccurate perception. The other side of that is "...o...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Why do fools fall in love? Why does the rain fall from up above? I know of a fool, you see. For that fool is me. I suspect the actual answer to that is found in the book of love, which you'd need to know who wrote, first and foremost. The most I've gotten is learning who put the bomp in the bomp-sh...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Hey there all! Have you ever said "quorum" in real life and if so, were you harmed in the process? No, but I did get some stares. Joe read books and paid attention at school or something, shame on him, apparently. I'm afraid I blame most of my education on early MMOs and Europa Universalis. You writ...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

I can take a look. Link me?

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Its now all on another site, its tiresome That tends to be how it happens. One of the controversial GRAPES (guns, religion, abortion, politics, economics, sexuality) emerges in a forum dedicated to anything but emerges, bickering occurs, relationships fray, an exodus is triggered in the interest of...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Hey there, I was being quite sincere! High Corporate Buzztongue aside, it would be dumb to offer a blanket reprieve for past offenses with zero context as to why, who, and how things went down. If a handful of folks were banned for discussing disallowed subjects before guidelines went into place pro...

Re: Your New Retro Gamer Community Team

Will we ever see you post again? Yup. Hi! Also, I may lurk from time to time, but I will most assuredly be working towards improving the place!
