For some reason, I got reminded of this good ol' forum again. So I decided to check if the URL was still up and it was. Didn't look the way I remembered it, so I did some looking around and I found out that this forum was practically cleansed. Not sure if the admin still remembers me, but I remember not having any problems with him. I know he is not fond of the people from the old forum but I am one of them, but fret not: I come in peace. I am not joining this forum because I got banned on any other forum, rather, I just figured I'd join since I used to be a member anyway. Also, props to the admin for saving the old forum on a separate URL, that's pretty cool.

Hey. You're right in that I don't like you guys. lol

HOWEVER

You may stay here if you like. Just follow the damn rules. Same as it's always been. Same as it always will be. And thank you for your compliments. I think a sufficient amount of time has passed to let old things go (generally speaking) and to move on. Hence why I reuploaded the old forums and opened them back for public viewing.

What I WILL say as well is that, looking back on my old posts at Sanctuary v1.0, I could have been more professional in how I handled certain matters. Doesn't surprise me anymore that people called my posts kinda cringey at times back in the day.

I'm going to read the thread you linked after I post this reply.

I wasn't sure if you remembered me or not but I was never a troublemaker on the former Sanctuary or someone who was hostile towards you, but I can absolutely understand why you hate(d) the userbase and by extension me if you don't remember me. I do remember some really sick and illegal stuff getting uploaded here on a frequent basis just to try and get rid of the traffic and re-direct them to a rivaling forum instead. I'm sure you remember that or if you don't you just tried your best forgetting that, understandably so. The whole ordeal is enough to hate those associated with the former Sanctuary and the place we came from.

Either way, it's all in the past now. And well said; your forums, your rules. I have been on NiS for the better part of the decade and I have never gotten a warning or a ban. I'm a good boy after all.

Actually I do remember you a little, and yeah, you weren't one of the "troublemakers" at all as far as I remember. And yes, I do remember them posting CP all over the forum... >_> Thank fuck I don't remember the exact images anymore though.

Yeah, I've seen NiS. It's Lanny's personal monkey cage. lol Aren't they already rebelling against him too?

I went on to read the thread you linked after I posted my previous reply, but before I could get halfway through, I saw a link to yet another thread so I made sure to read all of that before I finished the original thread I was linked to.

I can safely say that is a very good explanation of the forums that came before this one. I was actually not on TOTSE but I was on Zoklet since 2010. I did have an account on totse2 but I posted on Zoklet only. I saw that you mentioned Zoklet and why it was shut down but the way you put it is actually a much nicer version of what really went down.

So what really went down is that Zok got doxxed and his personal information was leaked. Not only his own personal information; but also that of his parents and other relatives. And I mean everything, from telephone numbers to names to addresses. Couple this with his already existing health problems at the time and you can see why he would pull the plug. I actually think it was really nice of him to leave up the site for over a month and give us a month-long head start to get our stuff together, see where we want to relocate, etc. He didn't have to do that, especially not with the way he was treated by the userbase he took care of for six years.

I thought I'd give you the real reason so that other people on this new incarnation of the Sanctuary can see as to why the old members leave a bad taste in your mouth. I did see you mentioned the CP and that was actually the sick, illegal stuff I was talking about. Luckily I don't remember those either and luckily I haven't seen it on Lanny's forum. Lanny, by the way, wasn't Aldra. That is a different user. Lanny was a moderator on Zoklet.

Just thought I'd share the information I possess since it's useful as it gives further insight as to how rotten certain parts of the internet can be.

Heh, glad you have a more positive memory of me! That's nice to hear.

Yeah, Lanny has to deal with a bunch of very annoying people very often. Well, not as much in the past few years but it was definitely daily before. You know how it goes; someone gets banned and creates hundreds of alts just to annoy Lanny again. And to think Lanny spends money just to keep the site up and running with people like that. LOL. Also, I just found out that some well-known user apparently got arrested for possessing CP. I'm not sure if he's trolling or not because he also said his toddler died when she didn't. Very messed up for him to joke about. But he hasn't been posting since he created that thread and it's been three months. This dude usually posts a lot everyday and has over 60,000 posts so I'm thinking he probably did get arrested for it.

Yeah, I think I heard about that, but I never bothered enough to verify that myself.

Well, that was definitely his decision. I distinctly recall him being in the "Arnox is a faggot" camp back in the day. I have to confess, I take a visceral pleasure in seeing him now having to deal with the same crap I did. But oh well.

If you're serious about joining us and being a quality member (or at least a rules-following member), then I hope you stick around.

Oh man, how I just disappeared on the very day that I registered and then having this thread end with that sentence.. well, it just gives a bad impression of me! I was absent because I didn't really use forums anymore - but now I am starting to use forums again - so yes, I am (and was) serious about joining you and being a member who does not break the rules (I can't call myself a quality member since I do not have what it takes, that's not to say I'm a flaming troll, just that I won't post anything ground-breaking as I lack the capabilities of doing such a thing).

I hope you're doing well, Arnox.
