Oh yes, I do remember the older days from about 8 years ago when I first joined... Ahh, those bring days back times when I was always the jokester in the DNF and hardware threads. Guess I just started to lose my touch after a while.

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
I don't know what to say, but this is/was the best internet community I was ever a part of. I seem to recall a different forum had been started at one point. Anyone care to enlighten me? Anyone talk to RollingBrass anymore? Hello to everyone! Strange seeing these usernames and remembering you as people, not random internet users. I remember the days of staying up all night in IRC.

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
Came here on a lark (I do that from time to time).

I remember 1997 when I saw the cover of PC Gamer with Duke on the cover. This is the first/only place I joined and stayed here for YEARS. Ended up in the top 5/10 users in terms of posts.

That was... 15 years ago? That can't be right...

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
After the 2001 vid this site and NVnews.net were my morning newspaper. I was addicted to the site as a lurker and joined a short time after. Holy crap the The Twin Towers were still standing back then, it's been a lot longer than I thought.

This place really ruined me for every other forum of this type. They just never had enough of the quality people we had here.

I remember quite a bit. Too bad this place is dead now.

For me, it started out as a place to be while waiting for DNF. Then it became an actual community. Like I said, too bad...

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
actually I started out here lurking when I tried fudging a bit with the build editor, and to get some nice maps for our lans for duke3d...

Took me quite a while to stop lurking, but that's so long ago, I can't even remember whether I used to have my "original screenname" on prior editions of this forum or directly went to this one.

Same here. I was so young, I actually lurked mostly because I was a bit intimidated and felt I woudnt contribute. I wonder what happened to that boy..

With this place, it feels like have have gotten some kind of compressed view of what happens with your perspective when you get old, because here I am just that. So stuff like this is a bit funny:

I remember your nickname from the DNF threads - as one of the new guys, and in my head you still are. If we bump this thread in 10 years, it will probably still be like that.

No. I think not. He pissed me off pretty bad once. Probably not alone in that. Draz and I on the other hand hit it off well in a "father with kids" bond kind of way. He feared the worst. I wonder if what happened in the end was "the worst"?

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
My profile reports that I joined in 2003, but I was a member before it became 3D Realms. It would have been when I got a PC that finally gave me internet access. As a rabid Apogee fan, it was natural that I would end up here. I don't remember the exact year, but in the meantime, I have arrived at the uppermost age bracket, and I'm wondering how many years it will be before I forget how to play...or even how to use a computer.

I had some good friends here, lively discussions that made me neglect feeding the family, and lots of information you could find only at a place like this. I still recognize some names...I miss the ones I no longer see.

I missed the Neil Roy, Drazula, XV and others debated each other all the time, but most of all our dearly beloved CS was the grandest of all.

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
Ah yes, the good old days when everyone was mass debating together.


As this was my only forum for almost a decade it's difficult for me to compare with any other forum from that time. But try to find a gaming forum today where people create a sense of community despite all their differences over souch a long time. Maybe nostalgia is playing a trick on me but the Internet is a very different place altogether today.

I find the idea of people "leaving" a website or forum or message board kinda of interesting. A change of habit in a couple of mouse clicks or keystrokes, and whole communities die, all without people actually going anywhere.

Yeah. It is interesting, if you want to get that deep. That pretty much makes all the "leaving" a mental thing.

Re: i remember when 3drealms forums
CS struck me as a guy so insanely smart that life simply bored him, to the point he would just end up trolling and trying to make people lose it. Wish I could read the old threads to see if I would still get the same impression.

And yeah, Drazula, sucks to not know anything about that. He was kind of personal so its weird not knowing what kind of thin air he disappeared into.

After Drazula's divorce he kind of drifted away from the forums.
Seems after that happened his focus shifted, and maintaining an active role in an online forum didn't remain a priority.

Leaving out the DNF forum that started consisting of people posting dreams they had about an unreleased game and other clear psychological problems, the 3DR boards were by far the most enjoyable forum I'd ever been on.

I started playing Apogee\3DR games pretty young, but it wasn't until later on from being on a few other boards that I realized Joe was the most effective and level headed moderator of any of them.
