I didn't get a spouse out of this game but I got a ton of good memories. I still think back on it from time to time and have the urge to revisit these old forums every other year or so. Something about that original, founding core of players was pretty magical. Probably because it takes a special kind of geek to get drawn into a fresh Stargate themed text based game, and we were all that kind of oddball on some level or another.

Here's to the good times.

I was hoping someone would add him to the fb group. Also I found an old forum post of me from like 07'. It was kinda strange. I miss all the old school people. I find there abandoned accounts while farming and get a little sad.

We were never enemies actually. I found out about it through buck actually who would go on about how much of a good guy he was.
We always had similar ethics when it came to the game. I guess that also translated to how we were as people in real life too.

I organised a GW meet up for Australia players back in 2007 and he flew in from another state to attend. He says he liked me before we actually met, but I wasn't interested in him at all before I met him in person. Funny how life can take you by surprise like that.

Anyway,, 5 years of marriage later...geeks to the end.

The Deity was famous for an alliance called Ancient Brethren (lame!)(don't tell him I said that). I was famous for pissing people off and basically living on the forums or in the chat room. Is that still around?
Finally, some credit!

Hope you guys are doing well. I got little bucks runnin around these days :)


In this world nothing can be said to be certain except death, taxes, the Seahawks beating the Rams once a year, and Setesh loving buck.

Hello to all who may or may not know my name to mean anything at all.

I was thinking about this game and the forums again recently so wanted to stop in and say hello.

My husband and I met because of this game, and so I feel eternally grateful to it even if I no longer play and I am no longer around.

I look around and I see few names I recognise. It also seems to be very quiet.

When I first started playing this game in 2005 the forums was the place to be.

We were stupid and fun and mean and challenging to each other, but we were a good community of idiots and it was truly a wonderful place to pass the time.

Shout outs to Omega whom are still a strong force as far as I can see. As much as they were an alliance I loved to hate, they are also close to my heart due to the fact I took part in their origin story with EnterTheLion and Diamond Dust.

I can't believe it has been 11 year since the game started.

I was 20 when I started playing and now I am an old age pensioner at 31. And it is still alive.

If nothing else, this place is a great time capsule for us old school players to look back on. The threads I spent so much of my early 20's being part of. The hours of chatting, posting and talking about other characters (or making up back-stories).

This place is very special to me and those who have made an impact on my life, even though I have never met them, are to be thanked for that.

Keep on keeping on SGW community. In a time when I felt I had nothing, this was everything to me.

Hey Jess.

Been a while.

Been an awful long time since I visited the boards. I'm not entirely sure what prompted me to do so. An unannounced surge of nostalgia is all I can put it down to.

It's good to see a familiar face - after all this time and the ups and downs we had, owing mostly to my own alcohol intake combined with not having actually grown up, I made my fair share of mistakes and stupid decisions. Such a huge part of the journey of life though, that I probably never thought I would be saying but it really was. This community was something else and I don't think anything like it will ever exist again.

Twelve years of SGW is actually frightening, and it's incredible it still goes on.

I'm glad you and Deity found something really incredible together here. It's such a wonderful story and I'm so happy for you. I miss you both.

Getting emotional now. So many memories.

Take care dude,
Louis

Hey Louis,

It is really lovely seeing your name again. We may have had our fair share of **Filtered** over the years, but I still think of you with fondness for all of the good times. And my friend there were many good times.
This place was a real respite for me while I was bored, lonely and in need of a friend. The friendships I forged in this game may not have been forever, but they were important and served me well at the time.
I count my lucky stars constantly for the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time to find Deity here. Fate is a strange beast.

You should find me on Facebook. I'd love to hear all about your Aussie trip and find out what you are up to these day.
