True, the posts made in the beginning of eM aren't of the best quality. However, the period of time you describe as the "Golden Age" of eM had quite a lot of interesting content. Of course, that was when there were a lot more dedicated posters in the GDF.

I can remember back when I first joined, there was like a 3 week period when the site was completely off line.

I think that was when eM was updated to look as it does now, with a side menu and blue trim instead of a plain white list. Foretel coded it all himself too, so that's probably why it took three weeks.

no, the new face lift came later If I recall correctly. Because a eM member found the new eM face on another web site that was not locked at the time. And it got locked after people started checkign it out. I think that was a couple of months later. I could be wrong though.

Not good enough?

EDIT: Why am I arguing with you so much as of late?

I wouldn't really classify any of the above as an argument. Greenie if u find that thread link it. I have forgotten what the old face looks like.

Quoting greenmaster:edit-we're arguing??


To be more specific, I'm questioning everything you say, or contrasting it. It's not exactly the type of debate you're thinking of, but it's just that I usually don't challenge people much. Or maybe it could be that I'm just becoming obsessed with battling llamas. Happy

EDIT: Does anyone have the link for the mini eM? I couldn't find it when the site was down.

The old eM

I'm talking about the small forum Strider created for when the site is down. I think we've only used it once, but it would be nice to have the link in case it's needed again.

Ahh, the forgotten knowledge. It has unlcoked buried memories. I'm just not sure if they are good memories or bad memories.

I vaguely recall the site being like that. This was back when the sideboard articles existed on the wizards site. I used to like them-does anyone know if they are still in existence?

I imagine the mini-forum is still up there, somewhere. YOu'll have to ask the man himself though.
