Well, I don't know about anyone else, but the forum stopped sending out password reset emails about a year ago. I forgot my password, couldn't reset it and eventually just walked away.
That's what killed my original Timothy Lumsden too. Hence the Redux me.

Looking through the recent threads, it does seem quieter than say 5 years ago.

I read RG forum every few weeks as there's still some really good posters like Shadowman, but unfortunately my favorite forum is pretty dead. I think a lot of old members joined another politically motivated gaming forum, which explains the downtime here

The big problem with RC is you can't really discuss anything sensibly at all. As soon as you do "The Unjust" turn up and troll you to oblivion and make it all pointless.

The thing is...
Gaming is a pastime/a hobby ,something to enjoy.
To others its like life and death and that's where it falls down in my opinion.

I think one day they'll grow out of it. Looks like one of them doesn't seem to be participating any more, so its really just down to maybe 3 usual suspects, who unsurprisingly have been banned from other forums (including this one) for similar twottishness.

The off topic section alone is annoying to look at

I spat my tea out laughing when I read that. I know Marko is Beast Man and Halcyon Daze is Trap Jaw but which member of the evil horde is Beany Baby?

It's funny, I don't remember Trap Jaw being an illiterate troll with the I.Q. of a breeze block.

But I guess that makes Seph He-Man :lol:
