Hey all!

Old CD name: lindoyle (old real-life nickname that no longer exists, hence my wanting a different username!)
Real name: Linda (but you can call me lindy)
Joined CD in: the year 2000. I was 18 years old (now 31)
Thoughts: Love seeing a new forum dedicated to the old one! I got love for the facebook page (which was super genius), but there's just something about a messageboard that makes it all feel more complete. Hope this place sprouts up to unfathomable measures!

See ya around. cheers

Old CD name: Demotos
Real name: Dustin age: 31
Joined CD in: the first time I joined was back in 2001 shortly before 9/11 if I remember correctly. Then time went by and I got preoccupied with getting married, having kids, etc. I didn't get heavy into CD until probably around 2006.


Thoughts: It will be nice to go immediately back to a topic instead of having to scroll through a hundred posts just to find it. Like Lindy said, FB is great and all but it can also get to be a pain.

Some Favorite memories from the old CD: The Gotham Club and the IceXman battles.

Old CD name: jim_8705
Real name: Timothy.
Joined CD in: First joined the original site in the summer of 2002, mainly because ATTACK OF THE CLONES came out. I was a very different person when I first started (I was 15, naturally) so I've grown up a lot since then but the only thing that hasn't changed is my interest in movies. That was actually the same year I started collecting DVDs (first copy was NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN), and it's expanded over hundreds of titles of all kinds of flicks.

Yes, if FB had simply upgraded their group profiles with the timeline format it wouldn't be such a problem. But this definitely makes a better alternative navigation wise. I thought that was most important to bring that back for the CD crew. This should have been done earlier, but better late than never.

Memories: Covering the Oscars, Bagel Cam and the Infamous bloody axe of the Bagel Goddess. The ongoing banter on the boards, especially with Peshkwe and the Sobakawa Pillow and teaching budding new editors how to help keep the site going with news Very Happy

*falcons keen from above*....yeah I used to do that...

Old CD name: simohawk
Real name: Simon (yeah real inventive hey...*facepalm*
Joined CD in: early 2000's for the Xmen movie
Thoughts: Oh the days of rpg stories that ran for ridiculous amounts of pages if you were lucky to have dedicated writers and the crazy tangents the threads would go off on. Starwars thread was awesome, oh and the Buffy thread was great! I invented some plotline about shadow warriors that could kill and the Stygia apocalypse, it was great fun!
Being drawn as an anime character by the CD resident artist (can't remember his name)
Talking to Osprey about in depth thoughts on random objects.
Catching up in the 'Inn' in the rpg forums
The legendary status of New Warrior Bolt and Cody's romance... (didn't they get married in real life?)
I was at Uni when I used to jump on the forum...man those were the days! ugh...getting older. 34 this year! Vale old CD board. Good times.
