    And I'm not sure, if its a good thing or not. There are people who I don't even know, and I kinda feel lost in the shuffle. But things change. I don't know, it just feels so *ugh* I can't even explain it. Maybe it is because I'm older now? :confused3 Does anyone else feel this way?

    Anyways, I'll check in from time to time, but I'm pretty busy, and so it might be awhile between logins.

    Vent over.

    I don't know how the board was long ago, since I only joined in August.

    hm. no more or less, just different people. the average age of the tb was higher than thirteen (unlike now) The threads were more disney related. we could use HTML. there were fewer "boost your post count" and stuff like that. no monthly game things like the boos or turkeys or anything like that. All of that stuff is pretty recent. we had strict moderators. (Norah and Travis at first, then Tara came in and then it was just travis and tara, and it seems travis had disappeared too.)

    Honestly, given the choice, I prefer old tb to new tb. but when I say old, I mean late 04, early 05. (i lurked a bit before I joined)

    I remember a bit of that. There's a bit I don't because I haven't been here as long as you have. Not even close.
    I remember everyone being older than me. There were very few my age, and now half the people I see posting are 10, 11 and 12.

    December 30th marks my second year on here.

    Yeah, that stuff gets annoying. And all the "Rack up your posts" topics. :headache:

    I don't mind threads that aren't Disney related.
    But completely pointless topics about nothing bother me.
    I like topics, where I can debate with you. I like topics that make me passionately mad.

    I'd like to have the board be Disney related too, but also a place where we can have random threads about different topics also.

    and I'm confused, you don't like new people?

    Well I can really live without the random threads, but since they are here it is nice to just have fun. But I would just as well enjoy good debates and good topic talks on Disney related stuff and other topics.

    That is why I try to join in on all the topics. Yes the Random thread does seem to get the most hits on here by old and new posters, but I think we should all strive to become more of a community and post on most of the threads. Especially the threads that members are asking for help from others. Those people are reaching out and it is very sad to look at some of those threads and see minimal activity and see a random thread with hundreds of thousands of silly stuff on them. Just my two cents from a new poster.
