Newp Enters Stage Right

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There are so many new faces that I'm sure most of you have no clue who I am.  Until the past few days it's been 9 or 10 years since I posted even a little bit and closer to 14 or 15 since I posted with any regularity.  I believe I'm really back now.  I still have a pretty busy life, but I should have more time on my hands now.

So, to any of my old friends/acquaintances who might be lurking in the shadows, I look forward to seeing how you've been doing.  and to those I don't know,  I look forward to getting to know you.  (um, except the morons, jerks and other lowlife.  We won't get along lol)

To what staff is left, I apologize for not using one of the introduction or other such threads.  I admit that I didn't want to get lost in the shuffle.   I won't be offended if yo move it.  Rejected maybe, but not offended. 😉

 Appearances can be deceiving.  I'll have much more to say about that soon, but for now let's just agree to disagree.  The patient may be in a coma, but she ain't dead. 😉

Eh, the forum is dead just as much as how you don't use the postal service to send casual communications between friends. Yeah, it is there, and yeah, you can do it, but it is a depreciated method of communication

Allthough I rarely post my self these day, I have done my share of it in the past (points at post count 😛 ) - I still keep an eye on the forum from time to time though.

I was thrilled to see my old comrade and brother in arms return to the forum! For those who don't know this man; he is one of the original admins on this site. Treat him with respect ❤️  Welcome back, Newpy! 

*hugs*

It's nice to see I can still depend on someone to defend my honor. Great to see you're still around Sunli! 🙂 

I should point out that I wasn't quite an original.  There were other admins around before me. When I joined the staff of Tip.it in 2002, Lightning was handling things in Silverion's absence, and I definitely remember Red_Tanya, Gugge, SpencerM98 and Katryna were admins when I came on as a mod. Edit: admin came later that year, I think.  That being said, from then until 2006, (I had to look the year  up. lol) it seemed like Tip.it was my life.   I may not quite be an original, but i sure gave it my all!

Those were the good old times. Hey there! I believe I was also in the staff along with you :) The years have passed so fast that I barely remember much anymore, but I do remember the joy and pride of being part of the Tip.It team.

Zargo, don't worry about that memory thing.  You'll get used to it. lol  I don't remember the 70's much either, but that's for a different reason.  They say that if you can remember the 70's, you weren't there. 😉

 

It's good to see you and to see that a few people are coming out of the shadows!

I wish I was into this game when the community was tiny, before RS2.. but I didn't have a computer with internet way back then. I think RS was the first online thing I ever played after we got DSL in 2005

Wkw,

Although their was a time when RS and Tip.it were tiny I guess, You would have had to start very early on to have had that.   I started around the end of August or early September 2001 and there were already thousands of people playing.  As far as Tip.it and the forums go, Scapeboard had close to a quarter million accounts in 2004 before we migrated here.  Granted, many of those were duplicate accounts with a smattering of bots thrown in, but even after we cleaned house, we still had a good 80 or 90, 000 accounts.  

Here's a look at Jagex.com from December 2001.  Before the update Andrew describes in the news, when I sold 1k iron or silver, it was done one screen (28) at a time.  With server crashes or problems with internet connections, it could take quite a while for big trades.  Times sure have changed.
