With all the old faces here, especially the ones from GP, I'm feeling a touch of the old nostalgia. Do you guys remember the days at GP, where we RPed for hours straight, the RPG moving faster than the members? Do you remember the first time "new page activate" was said? Do you remember discussing mecha tech with Mark Simmons?
Most of all, do you remember how intimate the board was in the very beginning, and how somehow, people felt the need to tell people that they were leaving for the night?
I sure do...and for some reason this board feels like Gundam Project did in its glory days...
I can almost symphathize with Li - right now, this board feels the same way that other boards do when they're young and only inhabited by a small gathering of people who are familiar with each other. You wish that it could stay that way, but people leave, and new people come, and inevitably those new people shatter the old feeling you had when you looked at the board, for here are intruders on YOUR little gathering, your private club, your little clique, your internet HOME.
I have hopes for this board, I really do.
May this board meet a better end than its predecessor, and may its administrators never abuse their powers.

If you're afraid of change, feel free to go drown yourself. Change is Life, kids. 'S the way things work.
Wow... how many years ago has it been since GP went down and Gundamwatch was brought to 'new management'? Been ages since I've been an active forum poster anywhere. I feel like an old man all of a sudden. The world... so grayscale... and all these young whippersnappers running around.
...Megaraptor, if you eat my teeth again, I'm going to use your tailbones to clean my gutter.
When Tiamat heard him her wits scattered, she was possessed and shrieked aloud, her legs shook from the crotch down, she gabbled spells, muttered maledictions, while the gods of war sharpened their weapons. Then they met: Marduk, that cleverest of gods, and Tiamat grappled alone in singled fight.
