    I'm old enough to remember Bloofy, Gaia raids, Liokaiser's foot fetishes, and SNAAAAKE drinking his own jizz (at least I THINK it was SNAAAAAKE).

    What.

    No, I'm not an OG.

    Apparently Azure thinks I'm technically still new, so I guess I'll still be new in like 3 years.

    I started playing SF when I was 14-15, with most of my arcade torture occurring on CE under "3 rounds, attack while stunned, no throwing" rules. Buying rolls of quarters at a time to get bodied was the most interesting thing to look forward to on my weekends. Lurked around here around '00, but did not really have that much interest in the "scene" in my city per se. Now I show up to get bodied in just about everything I put my hands on. *sigh*

    Does that make me "OG"? Meh, just makes me older with even slower reactions and less of a desire to listen to lame shittalk/dick riding.

    Oh, and the "johnson bros" are still here. Trust me on this.

    In the animated movie, several main TFs were destroyed. New TFs were brought in to replace them. The universe would get continuously worse as time went on, with G2, Beast Machines, Armada, etc. The random new good members are like Beast Wars.

    I am aware.

    Thanks, but why am I notable?
    You're not. OOOOOOOOHHHHH

    That is how we know that guy is not OG, because name dropping Az is like saying you used to watch Power Rangers "when they were still in space."

    If someone remembers Zero when he used to talk in third person or when Brandon Lee reigned as the top inscrutable wise poster...then that is OG.

    And all those were still way before the patented 24 threads and SRK Higher Institute of Tiering "discussions" as well.

    On another unrelated topic, I have been on this site way too fucking long, I don't even like fighting games.

    There was no stabby stabby or anything like that for most of the arcades I was at (as long as you did not mouth off to the wrong people). Still, SF2 life was tough for poke/non shoto chars with no DP/throwing (Vega FTW). Over the years, I have migrated into a throwing centric approach at times, which works against me alot.

    Talking about OG, I miss the old Battle Poll days :(

    I guess OG is in part nostalgia and part being respected by fellow members.

    Nope. I worked and played with the Cannons back in 1998 (?), but "only" joined the site in Nov 2001 (member #1122), lurked for a long time, and didn't find out about tournaments outside of Cali until late 2002 because I'm dumb. I just remember Valle, Watson, and Ricky from Tips and Tricks and wishing we had tournaments in our area. You know, like the ones the Cannons and then Rattana were already running. :sad:

    A lot of the local scene was too disorganized to keep track of logins/passwords, so our local OGs are generally on new accounts or just lurk these days. I think Row said he had 8 accounts that he was locked out of. :lol:

    I am not an OG, first time I started taking fighting games seriously was when I started to notice UltimateMK.com, I posted there back in 2006. Had some good times with UMK3, loved that game. I think I might of joined this site around that time if it wasn't for a thread on SRK that was posted on UltimateMK.com, on the thread there were a bunch of ignorant people bashing the game, saying it was broken etc. I think the overall elitist atmosphere is what really turned me off, if I did join I would probably use my old name, Iori9.

    I asked them about APEX last year. Supposedly tournaments would have a lot of mysteriously high turnouts, or you'd have "one entry fee enters you into everything" or other methods used to imbalance the APEX scaling.

    I miss the shields. Maybe have them tied to join date instead of post count?

    Almost the links here are from the WayBack Machine. This means that they're from that date and if you want to actually read the full threads/links, you probably want to go forward in the WayBack Machine first so you don't skip out on the later additions.
    I used to read the ST and XvSF sections, but never felt the need to post until Super SFIV came out, and I knew I was going to play it a fair bit (which I did, and now don't). I used to be away all day in #capcom and download Battle by the Bay vids on dial-up in Preppy's hub, if that counts? :) The last 12 years went really quick. I can remember when SFIII was being previewed in magazines like it was yesterday, and laughably (now) basic FAQs going up quick for A3 when that hit. I guess the real hardcore were discussing this shit online when Super Turbo came out, or even Hyper Fighting, on the newsgroups. Respectful, innocent times.
    I'm not sure if that disqualifies you as OG or not. :lol:

    The GoForBroke DirectConnect hub wasn't originally "mine". I took it over from DrFunkenstein (join date on that account may 2001) when he disappeared (original "SF Vids @ Go For Broke Hub" thread). And then we started getting a massive influx of people who just wanted to download stuff and not share, or who had a bunch of ... illicit stuff I couldn't have my computers touching (I'm under light but continued legal scrutiny because of my job). So it made progressively more sense for me to have a site. And about April 2007, I finally canned the dying GFB hub in favor of solely hosting on zachd.com.

    For further context: I bought the zachd.com domain name around Feb 2004, and started using it to host videos about Aug 2004. By at least December 2004 I was sharing a huge amount of videos via AIM file transfer, via the hub, and via my normal user account on nwlink.com. (The nwlink.com videos probably started appearing up there in 2003 or so. I'm too lazy to check.) Funk disappeared right about then (late 2004), so by January 2005 we moved from "GFB" to "smash" (also as per this). April 2005 is the point at which things started getting out of control as regards everybody wanting footage via AIM, so I stopped doing AIM transfers, the ghetto way I used to handle the footage.

    Then NWLink started freaking out in February 2007 since I was doing "nearly" a terabyte of traffic a month just via zachd.com, so I moved hosts March 2007 to one that could handle terabytes of traffic without charging me a kazillion dollars. I was regularly doing around 40-50 terabytes a month for a long while, but since I haven't done any substantial filming in a while, it's down to "only" ~2TB per month for the past year.

    Also OG - Siegfried's Fighter Mania.

    And fuck, I forgot about this:
    * My printable MvC2 move lists
    , which was the reason I was lurking SRK in the first place. (Other move lists can be found here here, and yes the typos in those move lists directly correlate to the moves that I still screw up. :lol:)

    God bless the WayBack Machine.

    If anything you're looking for isn't in the Pre-Crash Archive, you might want to try the WayBack Machine.


    Aaaaand as regards my ties to Evo...
    I work at MS, and MS bought VxTreme back in the day. That's where the Cannons worked after college. The first day they came to Redmond, the entire product team went out to Zones Arcade to play games all day. We all sat on XvSF and the Capcom games together and played until the buses left. I eventually bought a sweet 25" SFII:CE cabinet with Wico Perfect 360 sticks (best sticks ever made) and brought that into work. We'd play the Vs series or some iteration of SF3 after work and I'd kind mostly hold my own against their far better technical play. During this time I had zero idea that they were running local tournaments at Quarters Arcade - right near where I lived - , or that tournaments were really a thing outside of Tips and Tricks magazines. Then they left MS.
    I kept playing at work and the local arcades, and eventually was walking around SouthCenter Mall with my then-gf. They had a random "MvC2 tournament this weekend!" sign up, so I ended up going and meeting the rest of the Seattle FGC then. (If you're a Seattleite, this was Kuan's 'welcome back' tournament in 2003.) They convinced me to go to Evo, and I was stunned to see the Cannons again. :)

    Started playing SF in 1992, knew about the community before SRK existed, was on agsf2 mainly as a lurker around the time it was beset with posts by SFA3 noobs, wore out a copy of the SFA2 Superbook, bought the B4 tapes and opened them like a kid on Christmas, etc. I'm still not an OG.

    Honestly, unless you were a competitor before SRK started (or otherwise involved in the community somehow), how OG are you really?

    If shields were brought back does that mean only OG members would get galaga ships? Wasn't a red ship 20-30k posts and a white one 10?

    Or the shields can be relative to the amount of likes a person has like sorta like a rep system but not really. Though I do miss rep I don't think its going be brought back after so many new members joined with SFIV
