    ^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.

    Also want to say that people being able to buy join dates is just silly. But $$$ talks

    Wait, people here have actually done that?

    ^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.
    Rumble in the Tundra 7- coming soon!

    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.

    old srk was better imo. More top players used to post and the levels of discussion were much better and deeper. Pretty much since the sf4 era, 09ers, this site has become way more casual.
    @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.
  • Jion_WansuJion_Wansu Joined: Posts: 5,731
    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: 5,731
    Somehow when SRk moved to Vanilla Forums my account got deleted or lost... My account turned into "Unknown User" account...

    You know what would even be better though??? If all the people that used to post on here that were friends that don't post anymore or people you made friends in the arcades that don't come anymore all came back so it would be one big reunion!!! Ahhh that would be great

  • Raz0rRaz0r Did you really just write that? Joined: Posts: 24,752 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Haha I remember all those "Iceman is top tier!" arguments. The guy was okay but he had NO options when playing top tiers. Even against Cable the motherfucker may not take chip damage but if he does any move he'd eat that AHVB with the quickness.

    Hey some people love team red! Its funny running into people in tournaments & they talk about how they neg repping me. Some people even went to the premium thread & form a group to neg bomb me weekly.

    You guys have all been here for so long.

    I find it funny in my relatively short time here I've impacted these forums far more than most of you ever have or ever will.

    I miss the character battles, before they got overly complicated. Who was the last reigning Prince Of Masturbation?
