    Haha, I too was pretty young back in the board's infancy, so I'm hopeful that's the level of detail everyone who is still around remembers.

    I'm pretty surprised there are so many people still checking here occasionally, but am glad there are. It's good to hear what people are doing :)

    Ah yes, I think I made mention of that in the other thread about old members. I had some pretty ridiculous ideas back then.

    Long time no see, folks.

    I think the fact that barely any of us are around anymore is a testament to how the community has changed over time. On the flipside, I'm still a regular over on the Sneap board, which is the only forum I've ever been on that's consistently remained a quality place.

    Checked this forum just now on a whim, out of nostalgia, so I guess this thread really does have calling powers. Glad to hear you're all keeping well.

    Didn't you make an identical thread a year or two back MetalMan?

    PS. I used to be Moonlapse.

    Calling powers indeed. I was just watching the Roundhouse dvd and thought I'd visit the forum again. Still remembered my account login and it's still active too! :)

    I never posted much (0.02/day...) but joined somewhere in 2001 so that makes me an old-timer I guess.

    Hi there.

    I didn't use the search function and don't remember if I did such a thread a few years back. I had been browsing the forums up to me seeing Opeth in May so I decided to post.

    Nice to see people still around. I was very surprised to see Satori make a similar thread only days after I made this one. Weird.

    He sure stirred up some epic debates, and subsequently wiped the floor with everyone participating.

    You got a few years on me big fella but yeah, I'd call myself an old time forum member and Opeth fan that still lurks around here on occasion. Opeth still get's the most playtime on my playlist though...that's fer surr.

    Indeed. And a nice hearken to the old days of this board. What ever happened to Misanthrope and Sartori by the way? I remember I got into a massive discussion with Sartori about the influence drugs have had in the composition of music but yeah...we're all a bit older and jaded these days.

    I'm sure he's doing fine :)

    @Cutter: How did you manage to keep your post count so low over the years? Longest registered lurker ever!?

    I remember the discussion you're talking about. Strange, but there was always some quality stuff going on when Satori brought the guns to bear. Can't remember how that one ended either. I recall being adamant that one didn't need to be high in order to write good music.

    Yeah, it is quite low isn't it....just sort of phased out after those first few years I guess ...but even then, pretty low. I'm not sure how that one played out either but lets just leave it at that...I'm sure there's other shit to talk about these days.

    it sort of helps to keep the post count low when there is about 5 minutes of readable material each month (mine obviously not included). But I still keep getting drawn back.
