I'm not really sure where this belongs so I decided it fell under the Daft heading...

Do you remember those interesting individuals that used to frequent the forums? People like Quoth(The Raven) and Jimi Jimi? What about WeeJ? Or Silver Star Angel of Da Towers? Who here remembers those past-forumites? Who here still remembers the Matabar or the many Harems? I wonder who still talks to their Flying Cats? Who still recognizes the power of being spangled? Who has run from scuttlers and hid in the wardrobe?

If you still remember those times, post here in rememberance of them.
Pikasyuu
personally, I try not to focus on past Matazone too much. That was one of the reasons I was absent for so long - some of those memories are so good that when you get to remembering them, you start to miss them a lot. obviously I'm not just talking about 'How Much Do You Miss Industrial Kybosh?' or the Matabloid or Matamon or Corpline, e-bachelorette, Mata's anim survivor (that corp voice guy did NOT win, sadly), but that was also a big part of it. I'm glad that the forums are still going strong and that all the new people can make their own memories here the way I did with cand, Lo, Missy, InKy, Leo, Dayan, Cheez, Jon, Ravein, Tara, everyone - this place just has a way about it that anyone, at any age, can just come here to chat and feel instantly surrounded by best friends.

So yeah, I remember. The place is a liiiittle more serious than it used to be, but it's still good for new memories and the old ones.

I remember all of those people, but have no idea what any of them are doing now, sorry! The only one I was really friends with at all was WeeJ, and I haven't spoken to her since hrm...2005? Maybe 2006.

I remember them all. smile.gif

I also remember that it was some sort of huge shock that I was only 12, and now we've got 8 year old members!

It's kinda weird though, it's like as I grew up and got a bit more serious, the forums have too. But the people here have always been here for me when I needed it. When I had just moved to a new school in seventh grade and had no friends, people were here to goof off with, and now that I'm older and am dealing with more difficult things, you're all still here. It's pretty freaking awesome, to put it simply.

I do wonder, though, do we still duct tape n00bs to the ceiling?

I agree with you on that one....

Well since n00bs can't create new Introduction threads its kinda hard to do that to them....

Though I suppose we could round some of them up and do it for old times sake!...

?

I'm fairly sure that they can. They can create new topics in introductions and personal concerns, can't they? I can't remember exactly.

Wow, who would have thought that moop would start such a fad when he started duct taping new people to the ceiling? tongue.gif

Yes. Yes they can.

and moop should definitely continue the duct taping tradition.....those were such good times happy.gif

When I've got more time I might put together a list of banned people so you can all have a big hiss at them. Then again I might not. Who knows?

Has anyone mentioned Leopold yet? Or PorcelainWarrior?
Pikasyuu
Porce is another one of those people I've been meaning to attempt to stalk for a decent catch up, but haven't done so yet. I did talk to CheeseIsFunny (Jon) a little while ago, and from what I remember, he mentioned he'd joined the military.

Oh oh, agony uncle thread - ask jonman (again optional). That would completely eliminate the personal concerns forum.
I_am_the_best
Or Ashbless? I haven't seen her round recently.

I think I've been here for a reasonable amount of time but, truth be told, I'm still pretty scared of everyone here. Not in a 'aahh!' way, just in a 'too shy to be friendly' way, if that makes any sense at all... ah, am rambling.
Daria
I know what you mean IATB. I always have a Thing where I'm worried if I'm butting in or being annoying. In person, I don't care biggrin.gif Just online I'm a bit more shy.
Hyperion
I've written several responses to several threads and forgone them because I'm not exactly sure how to say hey-again, but, ya know. The Lost Forumites probably miss the forum, too.

InKy was the reason I first came to Matazone.

... It's a shame he's gone.

But, uh. Hi guys.
Silver Star Angel of Da Towers
Strange how I decided to stumble upon this site again, hm?

I was doing a bit of reminiscing. I joined this site when I was 13 or 14, and I was really just looking for a place to fit in. I felt comfortable here, but also as I grew older, I realized I was dependent. My social interactions in real life had been hindered. I know it's only been a few years but I think that I have seriously matured.

I think I'll start popping up again though.
I miss the good old days.
Pikasyuu
whoa.
must be something about the holidays. including me (since i'm never REALLY gone), I'd say about..four or five old members have started actively posting again. That = awesome, because this place, when extremely active, is wonderful. well, aside from the very occasional problem, but that's just that - occasional.

InKy's still floating around, saa. try PMing him, he may get back to you, but he's still very slippery.
Hyperion
He was always slippery. I miss the basement popsicles. sad.gif
Kitty
I guess I've been around for quite a while, I don't post much anymore but I still skim through the threads
michael1384
Me, I miss the Travis.
Ashbless
Tigersong.

Dancing Hamster Guy. I liked him even though he tried Mata's patience to the point of being banned.
Whatever happened to JimiJimi anyway? I liked him well enough.

Laramon and his Lady. Her name begins with Fey? I wonder how it worked out for them and hope they are, collectively or seperately, doing very well.

Quoth the Raven.
The forumite formerly known as Because I Can. I liked his in your face manner.

As for me - I'm around. I just tend to lurk unless I've something to say.
Mata
Feyliya. There's a name that brings back memories.

It's lovely to see so many old friends popping back in.

The forums aren't as busy as they once were partially because I've not had time to make new animations, which reduces the amount of new people passing through. Perhaps the Halloween animation bumped things up a bit?

Jonman is happy, well, and living in Seattle with his wife, Kisah (that's her username on here). I heard from him a couple of weeks ago. I think he's very busy with work, hence not coming on here as much as he once did.
Phyllis

Tigersong.

Is Dr. Tigersong now! He's a dentist. A dentist with a livejournal, which seems to be the only place I talk to him these days.
Mata
Is that a proper medical doctor title? If he studied dentistry then he's still a mister. There are many doctors who are dentists, but not all dentists are doctors. Either way, good on Tigersong. It's a very worthwhile profession... Even if it does make me think of the song from Little Shop Of Horrors.
Pikasyuu
Jaq.
she was the first person i ever spoke to in iRC, the rest of you (debs, SPS, fuzzra, lolo) just lurked!
Hyperion
I would HOPE that Tigersong is nothing like Orin.

<3 LSOH.

I miss Jonman and cheese too. But see, I don't really even know who's still around and who's not... it's saaad. I don't know what happened to my IRC.

Well, dentists go through different amounts of training to become licensed depending on the country. US dentists, for example, spend several more years in school than UK dentists and must have a DDS (doctor of dental surgery) or DMD (doctor of medical dentistry) to become licensed to practice. I'm not entirely sure how it works in Canada (which is where Tigersong lives), but from what I can gather it is regulated by province.

I am 99% certain that his facebook profile said "Geoff is Dr. [Lastname]" awhile back, anyway. Ya pedant. tongue.gif
Mata
That's Dr. Pedant wink.gif biggrin.gif

AH MAH GAD, it's DI.

Mata
Crikey! Hello DI! How have you been?
MistressAlti
Well isn't this the most interesting little thread. Indeed, ye olde forum is not what it used to be, not without all those lovely people still around.

Some of the old folks have kinda migrated to other forms of keeping in touch/internet stalking. I'd like to think that maybe, someday, I'll actually meet some of them face-to-face.
Mata
Hi Missy, how's tricks? Life's keeping you busy, I trust?
MistressAlti
QUOTE (Mata @ Dec 13 2007, 11:48 AM) *

You assume correctly. In summary: events from Missy's Life 2007 include a wedding in Vegas, a honeymoon to Disney World, home ownership, a car accident, retail industry hell, graduation from university, and parenting four cats. My schedule's been awfully tight.
Mata
Cat parenting? Genetics have certainly come a long way in the last few years. If Tiddles doesn't keep up the alimony, tell him I'll let the dogs on him.

How did university go? I remember you applying - have two years really gone by already?
MistressAlti

It's been three years, actually, and yes they went by quickly. The first two years went well but the last one was littered with less-than-stellar performance and haphazard attendance due to too many other distractions. Fortunately it didn't catch up with me too much. All in all, had a lot of fun and ending up with my degree, so that's good enough.
Mata
Three years? Wow, that really flashed past.

I guess the obvious question is if you have any plans for what to do next?
craziness
i think i probably wouldn't have survived those akward in between years (12-14ish) if it weren't for matazone.

i was the youngest... i guess thats why a lot of people didn't like me... i was really immature compared the the rest, who were much older. but i'll be 18 in a month!!
Mata
Yikes! Craziness turning 18, now I feel really old! wink.gif

Aww, you weren't too bad Crazi, you were a kid and we understood that. We've had younger regular members on here since you started.

Nice to see you again. What have you been up to since you were last around regularly?
craziness
thank you mata.
i've just been focusing on high school, and of course that gave me a lot more things to do, with clubs, and more social oppurtunities, etc. i made a lot of older friends and things got a lot better.
i also got the traveling bug and i was an exchange student in panama for a short time. i'm going to mexico in february and visiting a friend there, touring around with him.
next year i'll be going to college/university in New Orleans and helping to rebuild
Rubix
wow, this is such a great thread.... I wonder about all the disappeared people a lot...

Oh, this probably seems weird because I'm posting as Rubix... Rubix= lurker pseudonym because I sorta wanted to become disassociated with my old self- my old self wrote too much emo poetry and seemed sort of annoying, but I guess we're all sorta like that in the inbetweens. Now I'm wondering if others adopted n00bful alter egos, and is that why we don't see them anymore? Hmm.... (Wouldn't that be creepy- no one ever went away, they're all just going by different names now...)

wink.gif
DarkInferno
I'm good thanks.... well.... not really atm, but I'm soldiering on.

Cash is tight and work is just weird atm... ah well..

So is it Doc Mata now?
Cath Sparrow
It's good to see so many of the old members popping up to say hi and nice to hear what you been up to. /hugs to you all
Mata
It is indeed. I graduated at the end of October. I chose the Yahoo username DocMata about six or seven years ago, on the basis that eventually I would be able to justify it. I don't think I'd realised that it would take this long!

Money is one of those things that for 99.9% of the world will always be tight. Try not to let it get to you and you'll be fine.

How's work weird? (And maybe the answer should be a Daily Life thread.)

What did he do?
elphaba2
As far as I can recall, he was just kind of an ass all the time. But then again, he might've committed some horrible moral infraction that I don't remember.
SPEAKERfortheLOST
I remember him being a real asshole all the time. However, he left after I disappeared for a while so I don't know the answer but you could definitely assume that his asshole-ness did have something to do with it.

Syuu mentioned her already, but has anyone heard anything from Jaq? She's one of the three non-Brit forumites with whom I've shared a telephone conversation. She failed to say 'aboot', despite being Canadian. I wasn't that disappointed, but still...
