Whats the history of this message board bruhs?
« on: May 21, 2015, 10:49:04 AM »
i found this place recommended by racketboy back in late 2007 when i was getting into burning some serious saturn games. even back then this place seemed pretty dead, and its forever been quiet.

whats the history of this place? how old is this fucking place? does this message board go back to the early 2000s when burning dreamcast games was the shiznit?  was it once a thriving community full of sega nerds with 100s of people a day talking about how cool sega is? also is the origin of this place american or british or WHAT!???!111 TALK TO ME BRUHS!!111

p.s. ive been listening to this fucking jam for the past couple of days: https://youtu.be/d02W-KjSuSU SHIT IS GETTING ME PUMPED!!!!11

I think I joined about 2004 and it was a lot more popular then as DC ISOs didn't appear on emuparadise or the like. We were big enough to get insulted in an NFO once. :D

There were loads of DC forums like this back then though, but this was the best.

The .nfo file that comes with ORARs?

IIRC we were insulted for not sharing ORARs lol.

I don't personally see the point of posting something that insults our own site...

Epic!

I think I found this site in 2003 or so, it was relatively new. Mesh, the founder is from the US somewhere. I took it over from him in 06/07 I think? It was a pretty happenin' board for a while. Now I'm just paying the bills so this piece of Internet history stays here and the cool people who are still here have a place to drop in for a while.

We were definitely the best. We weren't sketch. We weren't assholes. And we weren't greedy. I don't think you could say those three things about any other site.

i think i showed up around 05 or 06 and have had various accounts for various reasons.

originally found out about this place from an admin on a uk dc site before he banned me because i got into an argument over us politiics.

theres a bunch of people who disappeared. darkriku, the canadian kid, rikus nemes (solid snake was his name?) and many more.

yes, me and a few others created universal-gamer after we felt some tension between a few members here.
