Bbpress pastel forum is mostly accessible through wayback machine, so plenty of history can be archived on pastel land wiki.

I can do most for 2006 - 2011, but beyond that I'm not sure of, which requires the help of more recent generations.

-------

Don't forget the Great A' L L U K I N Story of 2011 :D

Of course, it still haven't been updated by me after spring of 2012... :(

Oh and don't forget the Year of Submachine during 2010. Of course, you should make it the Year of Submachine II in 2015 as well.

Which one was the black forum? That's the earliest age I remember.
TT: I guess one could use those words to describe it.
TT: If armed with a predilection for the inapt.

The black forum layout was released in late 2009, and then was changed back to the lighter in November 2010. That was during the first pastel war.

Go ahead and click a few topics, or forums. A few things were archived. I have to wonder if Mateusz's topic was archived though...

Its funny, I now clearly remember lot of stuff looking from there. :P

And I now have to clear some mistakes, because my memory wasn't perfect... :?

I found Euwoyne account in SubWiki, and thought it was Theta becuase Its sounds like his kind of username, but they appear to be different members.

OctoWolverine and BLS224 are very look-alike, which made me to confuse them as well.

I also appear to mistaken part of the "Account Migration" (2010) event be some kind if thing that happened back there in March-April 2009, there was lot of accounts for Raxas and Smartguy and posibly others, LOL wut?

Redafro was also back there, so he's 2nd Generation too!

Also, with was hard to guess members generations with certain accounts deleted and turned into anonymous, it appears 001010, Dr. NotSoNice and NavyOfficer were 2nd Generation too!


BTW: I found funny the fact you posted that moment, where a lot of users were active by then, and there's AK alone online in that capture. XD

And that I forgot the fact that I actually had over 10,000 posts O_O jeez, I forgot how involved I was in the second generation of forum.

And I really don't remember the black forum... must be the time when I was away from it for a while.

Oh and when I said about adding the Great A' L L U K I N Story? Forget that! Instead, just add the Great Forum Stories because there were other stories than mine back then :P

How did you forgot, I see you alone there in that capture! XD

Members who had more than 10000 post were:
Theta
Death Road
Chaos
AK (You)
Raxas
Vortex (Summing both his posts from BBPress and Pastel Lands)

And now Sublevel is going to reach that number! :D

Ah yeah that was because the spam filter would bozo accounts. Once you were a bozo, all of your posts were hidden, and we had to go into moderator control and manually unhide every single one. I made a topic about it at one point, giving a brief intro on the system, and the do's and don'ts. Eventually people just created new accounts.

And I don't even remember that!!!

Though I do remember making a new account because of something, something happened back in 2012... Was kinda bummed about losing my 10,000 posts, though.

I think we should keep this as an exhibit to those who are interested in over a decade worth of Pastel Forum's history.

This thread has been stickied.

You're welcome 8-)
