How often do you look at really old topics?
« on: December 31, 2016, 07:00:14 pm »
Isn't it interesting to see the history of FT?
I like looking at random old topics, or going to the beginning of popular topics to see how they all started. I think it's cool how much the site has evolved over time. (Even though I only joined on January 3rd, 2016)

I read old topics a lot. It's why whenever someone comes back to the site, I know who they are, even if we haven't spoken. I also like to see people who have hundreds of posts but haven't been on the site in years, and I wonder if they still remember the forums.

I used to a lot, I always find it fun seeing who the "regulars" we're at different times and how the forum mood has changed over time. I don't read that much anymore but I guess that's mostly since I've read a lot of the popular ones and now that I've been here for over two and a half years I'm sort of "old" and my old posts are cringy so I like to avoid them :fox-:P:

I don't like going back too often, it makes me sad when I see that all these cool people have left.

I don't look at them much
But if there's an active thread that's been going on awhile I'll go back and look at the old posts

I look at them a lot, because I like learning about Ye Olde Times like Mystic said  :fox-:P: Especially when it comes to posts by the founding members of the site and stuff

I also get really nostalgic sometimes. I've been here 5 years already so I've seen a lot of people come and go :/

Basically this, word for word  :fox-:P:

I always wonder what people are doing with their lives after all those years and what impact FT has made on them

I always look at the FTR stuff.

I wish it hadn't stopped, because it seemed like a really cool concept.

I always look at old threads... and usually end up reviving them. Take this, for example.

I do often. I also is I was there. I mean, I saw one thread in Techie Talk, talking about gaming system suggestions before the PS3 and Xbox 2(which was released as the 360).
