Some girl posted these on Newfig.

[LINK]
[LINK]

Apparently, these are links to archived versions of Oldfig. Already so many memories are brought back by these wonderful things. And though many of these things confirm how much of an idiot I was back when I still had this thing called "free time", it also reminds me of all the names and things that I used to meet and see in the place that I called my internet home. A glance at the old member pages already reminds me of all the friends I made and lost. A scan on the forum page brings back all the things that used to be hotly debated but are now all but forgotten. A look at the old members' pages shows how we used to talk with our old friends. I actually had to exercise much self control to prevent myself from logging back onto Newfig and thanking whoever it was who found it.

Do note that some of the links in those archived pages do not actually load your desired destination, as obviously, they can't archive a copy of each day of all the pages of all the sites. Although it's unfortunate that we can't get to relive the whole past, it gives us a much better feel of what we once had than do mere screenshots. It's actually a really nice attempt for a sort of internet time machine as we can literally go back in internet time and see things as they were about to happen... to a certain degree. And this time machine isn't the sort that would enable us to actually change the past. But why would we even want to do that?

Oh by the way, I notice some of those old friends I talked about popping in and out of this place from time to time. I do regularly check this place, and it would be nice if you'd send me a PM or comment from time to time as it does get a little bit lonely waiting for Certain Someone for months at a time, without the occasional friendly chat with people.

And I do still check Newfig. I'm glad that the big fighting going on there is long over. Seeing the site near-"death" now tempts me occasionally to jump back in and give it the good 'ol shot in the arm. It's just too bad that I'm usually too busy to even check this site, even on a daily basis. Whatever free time I actually have is usually spent doing Starcraft-related things. It's not that I don't like this place any more. It's just that a real-time strategy game like Starcraft offers much more dynamic gameplay, and its professional e-sports scene offers so much more things to follow than this place. The only thing that brings be back here mostly is Certain Someone. And I don't think she even remembers this place anymore.

So uh, if you're one of those people who like re-living the past, you should definitely check out the links posted above as these are guaranteed to cause nostalgia. If you're one of those old friends I'm talking about, or even if you don't think we were particularly close but want to talk, just leave a message! There are no more of those evil rating things anyway [Green is still the best, though]! Talk about stuff happening in your life! How are Pseudo's new sites going? Is he really going to just let my 140-hour saved game of MARDEK 3 go to waste? How do you feel Figgyland compares now to what it was when I was still around? Are you still in school, or making your way in real life? And most importantly, why do you never send me any PMs?
I miss the times and the people.

I remember looking through those archives long ago! I can even remember the shame I felt looking back at what a total jaquesarse I was back then!

I miss how many friends I had back then, but at the same time, many of my friends from so long ago are still quite close. Of course there are some friends from OldFig that I haven't heard from in forever and a half, which is really a terribly sad thing. I mean, I'm still in contact with Dreamgawd, we usually holler something at one another every day on Facebook, most often about anime, and despite all the things that have gone on I'm still in contact with SaviourSephi. I'm also in contact with Savvy, Brock and to some extent Killian, Flemmy and Alpha through Facebook, though that's reduced. I'm in weak contact with FFl, as well, but we usually only have a chat about once every 6 months at most. I really miss a lot of my friends from here on OldFig, though. LibertarianJew got a newfig account for a short time, but didn't use it much. He hasn't been on in a year, and I miss our discussions here. I really miss RZf. He hasn't been here in forever and a half, and he was one of my closest friends.

I also miss our long-winded debates and discussions about things that were once interesting. Still, I guess in a way I'm glad that I'm not arguing anymore, right? I used to argue about everything, but nowadays I've sorta given up on it. I feel like more people respect me these days, both on Fig Hunter and in the real world, but the real world is something to speak of in PMs.

Y'know, I think it's a little ironic that Pseudo banned so many people and proclaimed it was because they were the kinds of people that killed sites, but FH is looking pretty dead right now because of it. To be honest, I felt a lot of them should have been banned given the circumstances, but even so I can't say that edoPus handled these things very well. Lack of tact is the real site killer... I know what lack of tact can do better than most anyone on this site.("Excuse me, but it's stupid to be an atheist because JESUS!" ~Rating Orb david s)

I don't really like the new look for MARDEK, and it feels so... wrong. But I'm glad there are people here on OldFig that are willing to look into remaking the games in the old style. Or rather, current style... they're prally not going to go back to the version I was used to with the save glitch and everything... which were really the games that brought me to Fig Hunter in the first place.

Ah, god yes! I just realized that I was typing rather fast! I haven't typed like this since this site was active! Back in the day I lived and breathed for these forums! I remember the hot debates over everything from religion to climate, and everything in between! AH THE GUN DEBATES! Being a member of such a vocal minority... There were good debates and there were bad debates. There were times when people gradually swayed my perspective on things. Nowadays I'm practically agnostic, far from the zealot I once was. These days I'm a lot more tolerant of vegetarians, though I still do eat meat, I actually intend to raise any kids I may have some day as vegetarians. Perhaps the biggest change I've undergone was with anime! I think when I first joined this site I was like "ANIME IS JUST STUPID YELLING WHILE FLYING THROUGH THE AIR REALLY SLOWLY AND THEN FIGHTING! IT'S SO LAME! IF IT ISN'T THAT, IT'S SAILOR MOON AND PANTIES!" Now days I'm just like "KA

ME

HA

ME

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!" or "Fighting evil by moonlight! Winning love by daylight! Never running from a real fight, she is the one named Sailor Moon!"

Watching so much anime had made me interested in east Asian culture quite a bit. I'm even taking a class in Mandarin Chinese, plus I've taken about 4 or 5 classes on East Asian history at my university. By the way, Rating Orb E CtG, I can now actually *read* some of your signature, though I read it perhaps differently as you'd pronounce it. I read it as "ni hao, wo hen mei -I don't recognize that character, but I'll look it up after I post this-". Which means more or less "Greetings, I am very beautiful -something-."

But yeah, I guess that's all I need to say in this post, I SHALL CERTAINLY PM YOU! BWAHAHAHA!

If anyone else wants to chat at me, please comment or PM me or even make a forum thread calling me your bosom brethren or whatever! I'll be sure to get back to you within three to five business years most likely! ^_^ Sorry I haven't been checking up on this site more often, guys! I'll do better in the future!

P.S. TIGER GUTS! I'M STILL A HIGHER LEVEL THAN YOU! I'M EVEN HIGHER LEVELED THAT EDOPUS OR CHOCOBOFAN!

P.P.S. I also miss Chocobofan.
ALL HAIL YALORT!!!1! Also, I PUGS!!

Hello, you who are reading that. This is indeed a warm place, and one quite feels that everyone around is a jolly chap, and you probably are, even if you would be less inclined to be so normally, because that's what Old FigHunter does, promoting nostalgia, soothing memories and all that.
I can't post on Newfig anyway, since I am banned. Too bad, because I would have liked to engage in lazy threads occasionally and talk to a few soothing people in chat. There is Skype, but its bland background character takes away much of the soothingness that I come to seek, probably. (I do not have Facebook, I don't like its workings. As long as there isn't a pragmatic reason to have an account there, I would rather avoid it. For small-scale contacts with people I know in real-life there is a Russian social network whose workings I like more precisely because they do not involve that extremely large pool of news and photos and whatnot that just lashes itself out on you - not that those do not exist there, but you can successfully ignore them if you wish because they don't pop up everywhere without asking.)

I am actually a bit surprised you didn't know about the Web Archive pages, CtG; I thought all ancient members came in the know one way or another. Well, the better for you then, as you can now enjoy the delicate memory and feel pangs of aesthetic sorrow that are so bittersweet, &c. I actually have the link to those archives stored in my bookmarklets somewhere, although I only check it rarely when I'm in the mood for some chewing on old memory, since the resulting sorrow tends to quickly get wearying. A good part of which is feeling rather sad at seeing how happier and more hopeful Pseudo was then than he is now, although it is remarkable that to this day he retains his strong core through the trials; in his way, he is an admirably strong-willed and determined individual, there's no denying that.

It feels really glad to see you two, for truly you're commendable guys with a personality that invites respect, and I tell the truth when saying I should have liked to have more of some of your qualities, notably determination tied with a strong-headed view of the world which is a superior empower. I feel like I have cased to be quite certain about some things regarding myself I would have very much liked to be certain about, and that makes me feel somewhat unsteady. Life-certainty - is there a pretty native English word for that, I wonder? - is something whose stability proves to be of significance.
Really, it's a shame so many good guys from the old says are no more to be seen; and for the good guys that still are to be seen, the activity has dropped to the point where it's not of particular goodness, not that I would be allowed to enjoy it for longer than a few days before I am found and baninated (and evidently trying again is a rather useless experience...).

And regarding friends. Well, as the Community page on the NewFig tells me when I show up in my newbanned account, "you have no friends". I do have a few contacts on Skype, but somehow it often feels right to refrain from approaching. I didn't exchange PMs with anyone here for a long time... (You may ignore the rest of the paragraph if you so wish, for it may be a bother.) [Apparently I don't know how to maintain proper friendship? This is something I used to think I would not say about myself, but I should at last admit now that it's been three years since I had headed for Uni and I still shun involved personal relationships of any sort. I guess I do know how to make a good impression when the occasion is infrequent, but not how to keep a closer relationship, since I can't forever be in self-presentation mode, and letting myself relax makes me a rather quirky person, and at this point (reciprocative) care and feeding positive energy is required, but I should be a pain to take care of since I'm a stubborn object. So, being averse to ruin a good impression (which logically means that I distrust myself not to compromise it, and that's a point for the lack of self-certainty), I preserve the status-quo by keeping contact small. Aren't I a silly? :>]

So what else. Oh, right, I repeat my praise to you because you're lovely guys who deserve to do well and feel swell. Of course it is a lazy man's solution to hopefully increasing the good around when he won't, would not or cannot apply himself to that: support the other guys so that they do make it. Well, I am frequently told I am too lazy.

And do write more! Your posts are really enjoyable. I have loved reading through them; it's in a way a sort of entertainment with words, and rather nice at that.
In annyway we trust!

Speaking of archives, I'm running out of text space on my "weekly scorecard" post. I've been diligently updating it once a week since I first started it in February 2013, but I'm almost at the character limit of forum posts and I need more space to continue updating. I probably would need someone to post [here] so I can write the next post. Any sort of text would do, but I'd appreciate even more if you post this specifically:

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

That would basically show an empty post. I know it's bypassing the rules and all, but given that it's an archived version of a dead site, I'm not sure if there's any meaning left to having those sort of rules when I'm really not bothering anybody.

Oh it turns out ratings still work somehow...

Please don't rate this.
