I was a member here back in the day (I think it was near 2004 or so) and it seems like a lot of the good ol' forums have been trimmed down. I know for one there used to be a roleplaying forum, and I also remember a few other forums that just don't seem to be here anymore. What happened? o~o

Thanks for any help clearing this up!

    Four years of development happened?

    A forum changes, like everything else. If there's no demand for things, they disappear. If there is demand for change, things change.

    Basically Solon's right. 4 years of changes..not to mention 3-4 admin changes..here's what I remember.

    The Final Fantasy forum and the Dragon Warrior forum merged into the Square-Enix forum.

    Anime forum morphed into the Entertainment forum.

    Roleplaying forum disappeared, only recently replaced by Saving Throw.

    General Help and Advice forum added.

    Forum Games forum added since we had too many of those around.

    --that's what I can remember quick off the top of my head before church. I'll see if I can rattle my brain some more when I get home.

    Gee, Solon, thanks for such a helpful answer.

    In any case, Mary-Alice, I appreciate your help. ^^

    Welcome. Guess writing/keeping up the newbie guide (yes I've been keeping a list of boards somewhere on there) helps to remember specifics. ^^

    Not to mention being around so long. ^^

    Also just so you know(now that I got time to think); the game help forum disappeared. General help is sorta the replacement.

    *checks the page updates archive on the newbie guide to jog some memory*

    Oh yeah. The Site and Forums Support forum is also pretty new.

    Of course, there's been more changes than changes to the sub-boards, but..I think that covers it.

    Curious as to what your username used to be.

    I was upset when the role playing forum disappeared, but seeing as towards the end I was basically its only inhabitant, I guess it was destined to be. The Saving Throw forum that now exists is, by its nature, not so much internet role play but more D&D based than the previously free form role playing area.

    Things changed a bit, but the content of the forum is basically the same. You just might have to nosey around a bit to find it.

    Mary covered everything. Anything else you need help with, you could either find in her newbie guide, or ask in the general help forum ^^.

    The biggest thing I miss is the roleplaying forum. God, I loved that place. When I was looking around here I was like, "...WTH?"
