Yeah, I never understood why people had problems with it. You don't even need to understand Japanese. If you have a good enough grasp of Engrish, you can figure out Sonic = Sonikku.

If you don't even have a good enough grasp of English/language/speaking/writing in general, things probably are a little more difficult though. So cut Bluecast some slack, will ya. O:)

ha ha, some of you are missing the point. There was some what of a dojo injoke back in the day of no one spelling my handle correctly (Sonnikku was popular as I recall) and my always correcting them. Over time it became a dojo meme of sorts, assuming of course that's even it a thing. :-k It's even written underneath my username in case you missed it the first time! :mad:

Way back in the days where everyone used to get together on MSN, wS hinted that he thought about implementing a filter that would automatically change every correct spelling of it to a wrong one too! :lol:

That's right, I forgot the old forum was hosted through another site and I did have an account there around 2002.

It's crazy to think how long it really has been. I googled shenmue when I was in high school around 2001 and was amazed at what you could do in game. Never had the chance to play it until I bought shenmue 2 in 2002, I had heard about the preview and the reviews in game informer and teamxbox at the time and of course thanks to internet walkthroughs, stumbled across shenmue dojo at the time.

Likewise.

Man, don't remind me. It's also close to being that amount of my life. I was also a member of the places that I quoted above. Strangely enough I clearly remember those icon boards when the Dojo was down.

Does it count if we disappear for years at a time and then return to lurk some more? Been off and on for about 15 years.

Joined a long time ago, in the old forums. Those gamespy days were the bomb.com
When the site migrated here in 2003, I became less and less active, only occasionally lurking/checking for Shenmue news.

Shenmue 3 effectively brought this account back from the dead; so, I’m basically back to being a new member at this point.
