Topic: where have all the members gone....

this is just kind of a reminiscing topic, nowadays i don't see a lot of my old friends here

anymore. have they moved to something like the mercs or the 501st (i hope not) or have they

just grown weary much as i have of all the bland topics this place harbors. from what i hear, i

entered the bffc just as the golden age of it was declining. i used to be so eager to check the

bffc, i did it constantly. now im like the phantom of the bffc opera....i lurk in the message

boards and leave a haunting note in the chatroom so people know i still exist tongue

where did Ralin, Revan, Si, Devil girl, Mel, cujo and Adeptus go, you guys used to rule the

boards with a fist made of awesome!

what happened!?

Re: where have all the members gone....

Well, I'm pretty sure Mel is spending the majority of her time now taking care of her baby. I can't speak for the others though. Me though? Just haven't had much to say, sorry.

Re: where have all the members gone....

I come here every day, but there's not really a lot to say right now.

Also, school did just start, so some of the younger ones might be super busy with that. And, yes, Mel is probably busy with her baby.

Re: where have all the members gone....

From what I know, Ralin is busy becoming a fireman and hanging out with his current gf and gang of friends in rl. Revan, I don't know. I thought Si and you chatted on MSN, so you probably know as much as I do. Devil Girl still has her 3 younglings to take care of, her photography, her flat to keep in order. Dunno about Cujo, Mel has her baby, Adeptus is in Germany, online at odd hours.

As for myself, I buried Terra, lol, became Cin Vhetin for personal reasons. Job-hunting keeps me rather busy lately, and I check in everyday but spend very little time here, mostly "on stealth", reading. From time to time when an interesting topic seems alive I post here and there but it's not as often as before.

I think Mel's recent RPG is rather "busy" compared to the rest. I don't see Sev, V_M, Draco, MandoGirl, Appo, Jumpy or Mandalore Hunter much, not sure about them. Masterchief and his gang are gone to other spheres of randomness. There's several others which just disappeared too, apparently.

I noticed the site going slower since a little while. I thought it was the summer and they were having fun in the sun, but now I don't know. People don't seem to be coming back like before. You should ask Adeptus or the other old members if it did that in the past and what happened later.

What about yourself, Regimas? You used to be the creative busy bee. Haven't seen you post much work in progress lately. What keeps you away?

Re: where have all the members gone....

Two words.  Senior year.  I do try to keep up with the RPG that's currently going on.  I may have to make a post soon...

I've been here since 2002, and I'm pretty sure this is the first time it's slowed down this much, to the extent that a whole day can pass without any new posts (except in the RPG section maybe).

Re: where have all the members gone....

i myself have been keeping busy with my armor and props.

i just recently made halo marine armor, an iron man arc reactor and am working on a business out of making halo odst armor.

so i have been keeping busy

i have kept in contact with sev, revan, si and recently cujo. all the rest have just up and disappeared.

i think we need to somehow bring back the golden ages of the site, maybe old members or fresh topics will cure the staleness.

oh great all seeing webmaster Aaron! what are your thoughts on the matter?

grace us with your insight!

Your stuff sounds cool. Care to show it off? it would already be something.

I'm glad of your reaction, we need to resurrect this place! Maybe you could try PMing the old members in question?

Gotta say... Part of the action here was Masterchief, Glopino, and other similar kids' stuff and our reactions to it. Then Karson Fett's politic/religion debates.

The other old regulars don't seem to have the same kind of freetime anymore, and maybe as no one posts, it seems less appealing for anyone to post at all.

Adeptus and Ralin were good animators, full of ideas and rich in opinions of all kinds.



Glad that you're still around, Fett II.

Re: where have all the members gone....

I tried makin some new topics here and there but they weren't very popular unfortunitly, probably why I haven't made any new ones lately.

That said, once I see it, I'll no doubt make a topic about 9. Actually, I'm surprised no one else has made a topic about it already. No wonder it didn't make first place at the box office last weekend....

Re: where have all the members gone....

If I can just settle the job question, I plan on exploring Flash animations further, among other things. So even if probably very few of them will be Fett-related, I'll post my little experiments in a thread here somewhere in the Creative section, and hope they'll at least be viewed by a few of you, lol.

Re: where have all the members gone....

I'm still here  (hold your applause).

I still drop by occasionally, but between my lost of interest and my legendary procrastination, ya know.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: where have all the members gone....

I still come here everyday, though I don't usually find any threads that interest me enough to post.

So most everyone's still rather around. On stealth. That explains the high number of guests.

What type of threads would interest you enough to post again? Is there any subject you guys would like to see discussed that you don't see?

Re: where have all the members gone....

bunch of ninjas....

im so glad people like glopino and masterchief are gone, they made me want to leave.

anybody have any bffc resurrection ideas?

Re: where have all the members gone....

Well, do we all have banners or something up on our sites? Links to here as part of a sig on another board? Maybe a new member or two who would be willing to post would be nice. I don't really have any other ideas, I already tried with my Halloween thread, but I don't really have anything else.

Re: where have all the members gone....

Well my self plan is simply to post more, and try to fill up the gaping hole that Adeptus left. (though that's pretty much impossible)

To start things off, I started a new thread over in Film and TV if anyone's interested.

[i]"Sir, Finishing this Cake."[/i]

Re: where have all the members gone....

well i am still here... even though nobody knows me, and Miba i would post more if there were some post i liked.

I linger in the post, even though no one knows me.

Re: where have all the members gone....

If each of us try and post something, it might be a start. We'll see where it leads us. A good motivation would be if people at least check what gets done by others. At best leave comments.

This offer is appetizing...yet my failure as news editor leads me to believe i should stand down.

'A fist made of awesome'

heheheee... 

As Terra *Cin* stated, I got seriously wrapped up in school after making it into the Fire Academy - pretty intense stuff.  Just with regular classes I was having a hard time keeping up with the threads, and since it was primarily the RPGs and the Creative sections that I spent the most time I've just really been too busy to even check in let alone post.  The couple of threads I made in the Creative section didn't seem to attract any attention at all anyway, so I kind of faded to other sites with the free time I had. 

I still check in once and a while though.  Got a couple creative writings in mind that I try to add material to when I can *want to work on my armor as well, but no luck there lately.*  Anything that post-worthy I'll remember to put up here.

There's so many RPGs that were never finished that I'd LOVE to either resume or rework and start over, but I honestly wouldn't have the time to keep up with them if we did...

Anyway, yeah, wish I could hang in more, but RL as really had me by the throat lately.  I'll check in as often as I can and try to add to any activity that's going on.

I'm still very much here.
