Blimey, I've just noticed you're back, Doug. I'm not sure I can handle this wave of nostalgia. :D
Listen to me. Traitor.

Hello chun and BoggyB! Glad to see you again!

Chun, you were one of the Brothers of Metal, were you not? It's been so long now I've completely forgotten what the Brothers of Metal actually were. I remember we had our own forum at one stage. Some pretty awesome people were in it and many of them signed up here. Sadly, it seems they're no longer posting.

BoM? Sounds a lot like one of the old Counterstrike clans that were on here for a bit. What I remember most is buying an Athlon 64 off you Doug since you were upgrading every three weeks back in the day :D good to have you back, hope you stick around.

Sounds about right; but I'm pretty sure I had stopped playing Counterstrike by the time I was a part of that gang. I think it was possibly a Counterstrike clan/metal appreciation society combo. I was just there for the metal.

Ha! I was upgrading an awful lot back then indeed! I vaguely remember selling you that.

Nowadays I only buy small-form-factor net-tops. I've not "built" a PC since 2008.

Ha, BoM! Viddy and I started that and it had surprisingly long legs after both of us had forgotten all about it :D

Okay, I am now convinced that there were indeed TWO York meets. I remember this now because of the clothes I was wearing.

I was trawling through the Archive of Dust and I discovered this post made by myself:

Stormbringer (in May 2006) wrote:Just ordered a Gone Jackals T-shirt! One of the last remaining, apparantly. I feel special.

I was wearing that shirt at the first York gathering, which I think took place only a month or two later (maybe the June or July of that year).

This was the best York meet. I still don't remember anyone else attending except myself, Viddy and Prey, but I know there was at least another. Was it Plant, perhaps? In any case, I remember having a nice time.

The second gathering happened in 2007 and that indeed was the one with Owen, Bev, Me and Ross. Maybe another? We had organised a second York meet because of the success of the first one. It was okay, but it really didn't live up to its predecessor. I was wearing a leather jacket on that day, which is what made me remember it being a different event.

Don't suppose anyone knows what ever happened there and when? Same goes for where ever the hell PCGF ended up being thrown. CVG seems to have long gone and PCGamer.com seems to no longer have a forum. Other than TheTales which seems pretty quiet is this the last home of people who met on PCGF?



Sekrit is still going, but has moved to Slack rather than using a typical forum. A fair few names on that list Prey posted are still active over there.


Wizards Forum is still going strong. Close to 12 years I think now. We had to move because of some crazy real life shit that happened, but it still exists and is fairly active.

Also, hi.

I was in BoM! I made two awesome custom sprays, one based on Appetite for Destruction and one on The Number Of The Beast haha! Used to love playing in that CS:S league with everyone.

Another BoM member here, but on Guild Wars if memory serves.

Doug, was it you sold me a Finntroll tshirt way back when? If so, I still own it and wear it :D

Evening chaps, I'm not dead at least ¬_¬

Reading the last couple of pages, man, it's good to see such colloquial use of the ¬_¬ smiley again - as well as seeing most of the old guard are still around. That really does bring me back some PW feels :D

I used to own this t-shirt. It got too small for me, though. ¬___¬
