Same, Tech talk walked me through my first stick mod, and there was no point in looking back after that. Fuck no. Not today, thank you, kindly.

I’ll miss the threads, and even though I didn’t post much, I always felt like sticking around because of all the coolness and knowledge here.

Who knows what’s coming next, but I hope to see all of you marvelous SOB’s on the other side.

Echoed.

I learned so much from this section. My girlfriend watches me tear down sticks and superguns and PCBs and is just amazed at how much I know about getting it done. I wouldn’t have done this without the drive to learn all of the ins and outs of stick building and modding.

This section is best section.

Tears roll down bothers and sisters, I’ve spent more time scrolling through this forum than I can possibly count, so much information it’ll be a shame to lose it.

I made a mod just last week as a matter of fact:

Nothing special, but I was surprised that the forums were closing after spending a lot of time here just the other day.

Farewell

Here here everyone. This place has been a pleasure to lurk and occasionally be apart of. Tech talk and the Trading Outlet got me into crafting sticks and pushed me to gain more knowledge. If not for all of the innovations that have developed in these forums I don’t know where our community would be. It wasn’t so long ago that if you were gonna make a stick you had to pad hack, solder, invert pots, install SOCD cleaners and more. Toodles (Marcus Post), Akishop, Brook, all of the modders in tech talk including Gummo and DaRabidDuckie and many more I definitely missed elevated us. All of the cool box builders like Foehammer, B15, finkle, Nitewalker, arthong, Jasen and waaaay more kept the craft fresh and inspired more people to make their own boxes whether it be out of a cereal box, a Santa Doll, a 360 or something else.

I greatly appreciate the knowledge amassed on this board and all the people that helped it get there whether it was an old head telling an 09er where all the info was at or someone new just showing off their new stick for the first time. The hobby is for the love of the game but it grew larger than the game for many of us. Talking for days and days on end which Cherry switches were best, how hard the rubber should be on a Fanta, comparing every new model of Seimitsu and Sanwa that came out, or seeing new innovations that ambitious members of the community put together like the Link was genuinely fun.

I don’t know all of you, but I appreciate all of you. Thank you so much for building something so worth while and lovely. You really enriched my life with good times.

Maybe I wasn’t visiting regularly, but I was just coming back to it. Finally figured out how to make a nice round box without having to buy an expensive router and wanted to make a stick again.

I am a bit sad that this is going away right when I was getting back to it. But at least I was there when it ended.

SRK-TT is the reason I’m broke.

Thanks for making me buy all those sticks! :360:

This place was a fantastic middle ground. Lots of console to arcade crossover here that you do not see much of in other forums like KLOV. Those muhfuckas are too busy tryna rebuild Simpsons arcade cabs. Huge disconnect between demographics over there. I really do hope SRK/Tech talk can survive elsewhere.
