    Yeah, just about every time I type out a reply, I just end up deleting it. Still lurking, I guess.

    Heh, I remember your avatar from one of the Christmas contests years ago. I can't remember what mine was though.

    What was it called back then? DP 12 Days of X-mas or something? It was always fun seeing the forum full of Christmas-themed avatars. And of course it was awesome when we'd have like 40 people participating in Secret Santa. Granted, with that many people, there was usually one bad apple, though the rest of the forum would step up for anybody who got stiffed. As scummy as it was, my husband and I still joke about the broken Mortal Kombat for GBA, haha. It's like the quintessential crappy gift.

    Yeah, 12 Days of DP Christmas sounds right to me. I couldn't remember if the avatar contest was part of the 12 day's contest, but it probably was. I actually won the grand prize when I was a new member and it's one of the reasons I stuck around. I sorta felt obligated, haha.

    yea this site is probably my favorite general site for retro games and systems. the community here is great...between this site and dreamcast-talk...i have been members of both since around 2005...i haven't posted as frequently as i used to but my collection was growing and now has kind of leveled off and i was getting most of my info from this site during those years. I will always be at minimum a lurker here and always appreciate the members on this site

    Same here only 14 years old, wow 2005 was 15 years ago, I was on Windows XP SP2 with a 17 inch CRT monitor, could get an NES for a very reasonable price on eBay and here usually via a money order, and newest console on the horizon was the Xbox 360, I swear I don't feel old

    I was talking to a coworker the other day about the gaming sites that we used to take part in. Logged in today for the first time in a while and saw that I had a PM inviting me to participate in the Secret Santa last year. Whoops. A little late for that one. I do very little gaming anymore. I am actually working though the LRG physical release of Fernz Gate on the PS4. Definitely a twist on the "basic" RPG story line.

    There was some really wacky drama around here a few years ago over moderation or something, and I stopped coming (and it seemed like a lot of other people did too). I landed here from a random link and wow, activity!

    SP2 with 17 inch monitor was that life for me back then too lol

    Overall this place has a great mix of gamers from all walks of life. I learned alot and had alot of great discussions over the years.

    Digitpress was the spot to be even before collecting or retro gaming became a new norm.

    There's been so much drama on these boards over the years, that it's a wonder this place is still standing with posts. I don't buy or sell video games anymore though or collect, so I don't really come on here. I stay active on Sega-16 forums.

    I come every now and then to click the "new post" thingy and it's so sad to see so few new messages...
    I remember that around 2006, whenever you would login here and click on the new post button, you would get 20 pages of stuff to read if you didn't come for two days, those were great times !
    Trully miss the golden age of Internet boards where debate could last for weeks/months sometimes years. Now it's all about those crappy social network, fast written stuff, fast read, fast forgotten.

    I'd been aware of this site for a long, long time prior to 2011, but that just happened to be the year I finally stopped being a lurker and make an account. In that time frame, I made a grand total of maybe 20 posts at most? It's so surreal to me to think that even though I personally feel like I joined pretty late into the community's lifespan, the time I finally actually joined is pushing a decade now. Time sure flies, even for us quiet lurkers

    I would try to promise being more active, but it's hard to guarantee anything these days. I suppose it doesn't matter much if I stick around or not, but it always feels nice to be a part of a community. Internet forums feel so archaic these days, but maybe that's a good thing.

    :: waves hand" :: ack....who cares if a forum is archaic? I'd rather read a forum I can search back to its beginnings than lose stuff on Facebook. In fact, forums are the only bits of "social media"I interact with.

    Word, couldn't agree more really. The sense of community is so much stronger on forums than any other kind of social media, even if you're like me and barely say anything!
