Coming back here fills me with nostalgia
« on: March 03, 2018, 05:54:04 pm »
I've kept this forum bookmarked in my browser for years, since the heyday of all of this bullshit.

I was early in college when I found eRepublik and started posting here. I sunk sooooo much time into this community. All night on IRC, shitposting in BBH, even adding some of you spergs on Steam and playing other games. It really meant a lot to me at the time. Playing eRepublik even influenced changing my major in college. And I was in the eUK, not even my own IRL country, so I was talking to people I knew I would never meet for real.

I'm almost 30 now and I'm a completely different person in so many ways from back then. But, I still pop in here from time to time. Usually posting some really old joke in BBH like :ugeek: or whatever. It reminds me how much I enjoyed forums back when they were a thing. Internet communities aren't really like this anymore. There was something specific to, like, 2005-2012 online that isn't around anymore. Everything is so atomized now. Twitch streams and twitter and a quick, high volume stream of content that never seems to quite gel the same way that a community around something more fixed and slow paced like a forum.

I don't know. Honestly, it makes me sad. It makes me aware of how much time has passed. It's weird, and maybe I'm the only one to experience it from something this small and stupid. But this whole community meant a lot to me and I still think about it regularly.

I'll also add that I'm still online, still willing to play a game. I didn't know a lot of the later players, so you may not know me, or I may not know you. I'm on Steam, etc. Send me a PM and I'm sure I'll still get it.

Hope you're all doing well. RIP Lily.

Still miss the good old days of Dio conflict and unending FIST threads

I joined when I was 11-12 and am on my 4th year of Uni. I do miss this place a lot (even though I couldn't use English properly at all).
