Well over 10 years, just reading back on a few of the older post and I can't believe time has passed so quickly at yet we are relatively still together. We were children, now adults. Some of us parents, rich, poor, living well or even dead.

I am by myself at the moment but had a big smile on my face and sometimes laughed outload reading some of the stuff that used to go on here. Will be a sad day when this forum is no longer. Is there actually a way to preserve/download all of the sites content?

Also, is Miles Prower still around? Stumbled across an old thread where I seemingly caused a mental breakdown.

Miles Prower wrote:Okay people, I am SICK AND TIRED of people who have got warnings then going on to make a topic whining and complaining about it, or whining when someone else gets banned. It happens almost every time on this forum without fail, and its getting rather tiresome, frankly.
Nick, don't insult my intelligence, you know damn well you were using the word in the derogatory sense.
Locking this now
For my part I prefer fifty thousand rifles to five million votes

My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn't put no dogs on me, they didn't rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. ... Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.

Could I have made mistakes? One does not build cities if one is guided by doubt. But can one govern in absolute certainty? I know that my beliefs have elevated me, just as I know that the things I have rejected would have destroyed me. But the city... it is collapsing before my... have I become so convinced by my own beliefs that I have stopped seeing the truth? Perhaps. ..... To question is to surrender. I will not question.

Nick Tyndall? You're Nick Tyndall? I thought you topped yourself or finally got convicted for stalking.

I joined the old-old forum in late 2001, when I was still in high school. I either had just ordered the PAL import of Shenmue II or was looking for advice on how to import it when I stumbled upon this crew.

My favorite poster in those days was named Shenmue2 (can't remember the exact formatting). He would say the most inane/silly things and people would get really pissed off, which was endlessly entertaining. A personal favorite was the story of how he ordered Shenmue II, and when the box arrived it contained nothing but a dead cockroach. Anybody else remember him?

Anyway, I've been in and out of the forum in the decade and a half since then -- I recall the great schism back in the summer of '03, and various other forum dramas. I've grown up along with the community; now I even have a son. Yes, I am someone's father. To those who remember me that may be a frightening thought, but rest assured that he will join the cult of Shenmue one day. He's a bit young to brainwash just yet, though.

i was around back with the original forums and actually helped saved these forums when planet dreamcast / forumplanet shut down.. I got the database transferred across onto the new host when there was no-one around with the technical expertise available.

13 years. I used to be one of the more active members on here, but sort of drifted away from this place. I come back from time to time, trying to come by more often. I remember the days of QWERTY taking the piss out of everyone and TEEPO posting his dick and the stories of him fucking his sister. This place has always been so classy.

I had a forum name way back when, but is long gone by now. I want to say it was in the days of Shenmue Online/The Matrix Online, when people would post news and snippets before that game was burried six feet under.

I remember the forum either had it snowing or cherry blossom petals falling to the ground at the top/sides of the screen. It was quite nice to look at. :heart:

I do not really remember anyone from back then, but it has been a while. Although there was one person who would make edited videos of Shenmue and post them. The newest of his that I can recall (or at least the last I had looked at before leaving) was of Ryo and Lan Di being friends or more... :shock: with them riding off on a motorcycle into the sunset... There was also a person who had made a game of Ryo's younger years on the PC. =D>

I came back here because I have been studying Japanese and wanted to see if the US retail version had a way to hear full Japanese and be subtitled in Japanese (To make learning more fun.) which it does not. Now I am kicking myself ](*,) for not getting the Japanese version 1 and 2 while in Akihabara at Sweet Potatoe (was it?). :-k

Now with S3 coming out and the possibility of 1 and 2 on Steam with hopefully being able to mod and thus keep the game alive indefinitely, I may stick around.

According to this since 2003? Holy hell. Also according to a search of my name, I have not been on these forums in seven years. I think the last time I tried logging on there was some error? Anyways, worked this time! I gotta lurk around and see if I still recognize anyone anymore... and update my profile information.

I don't seem to recall this.

Haha! It's been 12 years so that's probably a given. yeah one of them was named Monkey ..maybe the other was Ronin? gah been so long. They also spammed Ryo's place but was ok there. They did the same at HD. You banned them. Then they kept making new accounts daily. Since you allowed sound files to be linked then one day I logged in and was Kurt Angel WWE music playing on the forum :lol: . I had to PM you every day to ban them. At some point you just enabled mods the ability to ban. Thankfully they never did anything serious like TEEPO.

Profile says 2005 but I lurked for a while even before that. Trying to remember what actually got me to sign up. Probably the weird ass forum posts.

Oddly enough, I remember you signing up on here. Used to interact quite a bit if memory serves me correctly.
