Hello! I recognise some avatars and names in here! Not sure if anyone remember me, I'm racking my brains trying to remember what avatar I used to use over at BIS. I was also on ML for ages  :cat:

I remember you sweetie! From both places.

 

And that's gotta be Kate right? Where have you been?

Oh that one! Yeah, hardly anyone ever joined redux. Thanks Hiro...

 

 

Found my old avatar too. I don't even know who it is, lol, since I never played IWD.

Just the member list here. http://s6.zetaboards.com/MistressLair_Redux/members/ There's not many people. I do remember Kate and Shadiou from the BIS forums.

 

Oh wow, I do have an account there. I just can't remember any passwords for it, or even the password for my very old hotmail address.  :ermm:

Don't think us plebs would have had the privilege of custom avatars. Unfortunately my only pictorial evidence of the BIS forum just missed it, but it does quote your crimes for posterity.

 

(For context, this was from the time the IPLY forums had already gone up and most of the BIS forums were already locked, we were probably only able to post in WOT or somesuch)

EDIT: This was posted a year ago or so, the last time we had a old timey time nostalgia session. Specifically recalling the Lord Jim incident.

 

P.S. Thought I saw Caelis on the Whirlpool forums a couple years ago, but I may have been imagining things.

Thinking back, geez we used to have a pretty sizable Aussie mafia around in the day. Most have vanished now, though I'm one of the early guilty ones on that score. At least I can count four if I'm not mistaken in this thread.

Talking about Aussie's, anyone know what happened to Charcoal? Probably passed out in some pub no doubt.

Haven't seen Charcoal or Chairchucker or Veloxyll in ages.

Also Krez and HKD (and going way back I guess, Rachel). There's a Veloxyll active on Shamus Young's blog comments, how common could that name be?

Yeah, Rachel left not long after we moved from BIS to Interplay, as I recall.  Not sure if she was active here at some point or not.

 

I remember her and I having a bit of a disagreement when we were both still mods.  Ultimately time has proven her right and me wrong.  Awkward. :)

Sounds about right. :)

Veloxyll is around on FB.

Hey, if blackmail is what it takes to get you posting again, then blackmail it is.

Indeed! In fact, I am fairly sure that my custom title was probably something along the lines of 'Skank of the Isles' at one point. Classy bird, me.

 

TBH though I bet I have better dirt on people from IRC logs :D

Moving boards does weird things to nostalgia. There's a thread here reminiscing about the days of the BIS forums that easily comes up via a simple forum search and is full of familiar names. Yet that thread is from *2005*, so it was created two years after the closure. That thread is therefore itself nearly a decade old, five times longer than the gap to what it was addressing. But because it's here it doesn't feel too long ago at all.

 

The other thing is that I think my post count from the one year the IPLY forums existed is still higher than my total here made over more than a decade...

Think it was "rubs nads with glee".

That's the one. Class. Good old Onkel
