    It's pretty sad that a screenshot of SRK from 9-10 years ago looks so much better than current SRK. This place looks like shit since getting Vanilla forums.
    Runs like shit now to.
    It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

    Of course the new school kids can't appreciate reminiscing about the old school SRK.
    They never experienced GD in those days where circle jerk threads were non existent, and mods almost never got involved.
    You guys are lucky that Valaris and the others ones are constantly looking out for you babies.
    What, if Valaris isn't here we're gonna get beaten up behind the bleachers, on the internet?
    Almost all top players were in SRK at the time, and the popoffs were actually real (concluding in a grudge match at a tournament).
    Now they're almost nowhere to be seen cause 09ers are too whiny, and their feelings get hurt too easily.

    Oh well, times change....

    Lol most GD users don't seem to even play any more

    Yup. SRk seems to mirror the WWE. We're in PG era now, back then was the SRK attitude era...

    EDIT: here's the post I was talking about in my 1st post:

    Double EDIT: why hasn't info on old school SF been stickied yet or voted for "best of"

    My favorite times of past SRK were the posts of Rsigley and Cisco.

    ^Not sure if its still allowed, but considering all the trolls that have really old troll dates and very few posts, if it was stopped it was only recently.

    Wait, people here have actually done that?

  • BEWDBEWD 鬼の顔 Joined: Posts: 5,195 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    ^Yep, and I'm sure some of the posters in this thread have too. Again, one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of but to each their own.

    I can see it if you forget your log in or your account gets purged or some shit but faking like you were here if you weren't is so fucking lame it's hilarious.

    Trust me, SRK back then was just as bad or worse than it is now. Same elitism, same random scrubs (except they weren't online scrubs, just anime con scrubs etc.), same pointless self-appreciation threads and the same 4 questions being asked over and over.

    There is a reason I only have a handful of posts outside of my local matchfinder since those early days...

    /back to looking at current thread titles and sighing.

    Yeah, people on here do that. The poor commoners who can't afford such luxuries have to find other "ghetto" ways of "changing" their join date.

    @sh0ultz

    SRK right now is worse than GameFAQs back in the day cause back then at least Potter, Bill, Taiji, you, etc would post there.

    SRK can't have normal discussion, remember when we (and SpiderDan) tried to explain why certain things were a terrible idea for MvC3 and we both got banned for it because of casuals trolling? It was worth it though since Capcom partially listened and MvC3 wasn't a complete failure as it was originally going to be.

    yea...the mvc3 forum is still that bad apparently.

    it sucks that as popular as this site is and how many FGC players it reaches, the only thing its good for is more ad space...can't have enough ad space

    there aren't that many good discussions about the FGC on this website anymore and that wasn't really the case back in the day and if you do try to talk about something, its bombarded with morons trying to tell you whats good when they don't know themselves.

    LOL, paying money to pretend you are an internet O.G.? So sad yet funny.
    I would pay money to have my sign up date changed to 1993. Make it seem like this place was on that Newsgroup shit in the day.

    Ummm, it pretty much was with alt.games.sf2:

    no kidding? I was talking about how most people migrated from alt.games.sf2 to SRK. Also, it seems that people don't believe that i joined SRK in October 2001...
  • Buster WolfBuster Wolf Are you okay? Joined: Posts: 738
    alt.games.sf2 was before my time. I was really young when I joined SRK. IIRC, Deathscythe and I were among the youngest of the group back then. I migrated here from Fighters.net with the others after that first time it went down. Ah, I can still feel the uninhibited retard fury and unbridled negro rage us FNET folks caught when first coming here, heh.

    Props to anyone who catches that.

    Whatever happened to Deathscythe? I remember he had a name change to DS but it went quiet after that.

    Whatever happened to Apoc?

    I talked to him on aim a couple months ago. So he's still around and doing good. Just busy with other things from what I remember him saying.

    ps Jion is legit 2001. I remember him posting in the XBL live threads in those days and noticed his join date. What happened to your account?
  • Jion_WansuJion_Wansu Joined: Posts: 6,064
    Somehow when SRk moved to Vanilla Forums my account got deleted or lost... My account turned into "Unknown User" account...
